NEW COUPLE ALERT: STEPH & PAUL!
THERE’S SOMETHING VERY WRONG WITH Steph Scully, AND DEVELOPMENTS ARE ABOUT TO TAKE A DRASTIC NEW TURN.
Lonely Steph’s in a dark place when Paul emerges as an unlikely suitor – that’s when good neighbours become more than good friends, on Ramsay Street.
She’s one of the great ladies of Ramsay Street, and though she’s witnessed endless chapters of turmoil in the dramapacked cul-de-sac over the years, she’s always lived to see another day.
Steph Scully (Carla Bonner) has travelled so many hard roads in her many years in Erinsborough, but there’s something very wrong right now, as seen in upcoming episodes of Neighbours.
This beauty, a strong, tough and defiant woman, has become the lonely lady of Ramsay Street – and it seems no-one can pull her out of the funk she’s in now.
Ever since the collapse of her relationship with Jack (Andrew Morey), followed swiftly by her big decision to leave
Ramsay Street, the oncevivacious and larger-than-life Steph has faded away into a very different woman. The fact she also has to deal with her former lover Mark (Scott McGregor) does not help matters! He continues to be a reminder of a happy time in her life when she was in love and loved... But those days are long ago. The fact is Steph’s feeling very much alone as life continues on around her in Erinsborough. She finds she’s a woman without a purpose and feels so unsure about which way to turn next. Things get even tougher with the approach of Mother’s Day. She no longer has custody of Charlie, who’s now living far away from her. And she has not seen her other son Adam in almost a year, and it seems their connection is as tenuous as ever. As this Mother’s Day looms, Steph takes a long, hard look at her life, and she really doesn’t like what she sees – not at all! Her ever-loyal friend Toadie (Ryan Moloney) is the first to notice something’s up, and he asks Sonya (Eve Morey) if they can make Steph feel like part of the Rebecchi family for this year’s celebration. While Steph’s touched by the gesture, it does little to lift her feelings of gaping emptiness. Steph knows what she needs most right now is to be on her own, and that’s exactly what she wants. What fate delivers to her, however, is Paul Robinson (Stefan Dennis)! The pair have been friends as often as they’ve been sworn enemies, but on this Mother’s Day, they find their mutual sadness about where life has brought them bonds them in the most unexpected of ways.
Steph suggest Paul join her on a motorbike ride way out into the country, and along the way, something shifts between the pair. An understanding is reached and by the end of a very deep conversation, Steph finds herself looking at Paul in an entirely new way.
This firebrand with the hearty laugh and the sparkle in her every gesture needs to move her life out of the slow lane. Steph realises she’s spent enough time being lonely.
But could a relationship between Steph and Paul really be the answer? When another twist of fate changes the rules yet again, it’s a question Steph will be considering for a wide range of reasons!
