Neighbours legend Susan Kennedy is stuck between a rock and a hard place today...
Today’s Neighbours sees a fight break out between Susan Kennedy and her niece Elly Conway, potentially leading to a huge rift in the Kennedy house.
Elly has recently lost her beloved teaching job at Erinsborough High after she admitted she was involved with the drama surrounding Finn Kelly and his violation of his parole conditions.
And with no job and therefore no maternity pay when she has her baby in a few month’s time, the future is looking worrying for the mum-to-be.
After being sacked from her last post, Elly is under no illusion that she will land herself another teaching job easily.
But while working in another school might out of the question, she is buoyed when Finn suggests that she could try tutoring instead.
Elly is thrilled, thinking this could be the perfect career choice, especially as she will be able to work her hours around the baby when it’s born.
Knowing that she will need a reference, she asks Susan if she would do the honours, and Susan agrees… but things are about to turn seriously sour.
Elly is fuming when she gets off the phone with a tutoring agency and reveals they wouldn’t even give her an interview after they had spoken to Susan.
Wanting to know what her aunt has said to the company, Elly goes in all guns blazing and demands an explanation from Susan… who tries to defend herself as Elly accuses her of letting her down.
Susan tells Elly that while she fought to paint a positive picture of her teaching career, the tutoring company kept asking why Elly left her last job and eventually Susan had to tell the truth.
Elly is upset that Susan didn’t lie for her and storms off, with Karl left to comfort Susan and reassure her that she did the right thing.
But will Elly ever be able to forgive Susan? And will she ever manage to get her career back on track?
