DEE STANDS FOR DISASTER!
Andrea’s BACK WITH A BOMBSHELL: SHE’S Dee AND ONLY WANTS TO BE WITH Toadie!
Toadie’s in for the shock of his life on Neighbours when Andrea confesses her identity... and her love!
Not content with having turned Toadie’s life upside down over the past 18 months, Andrea Somers now drops a whole new bombshell – she is Dee after all!
In upcoming episodes of Neighbours, Andrea (Madeleine West) finally comes clean and confesses to Toadie (Ryan Moloney) that she is indeed Dee, and never stopped loving him!
A distraught Toadie has no idea what to think anymore! This is the second time Andrea has done this to him, but while he was overjoyed last time, this time he approaches her wild confession with wise caution.
Andrea has been committed to a psychiatric hospital in Hobart. She’s heavily medicated and seems to be living in an imaginary world! When Toadie and Sonya (Eve Morey) head with Willow (Mieke Billing-Smith) to the hospital to check in on Andrea, they’re shocked at her appearance. Andrea’s distressed and, when she sees Willow, reacts badly and has to be reminded this is her daughter! Andrea breaks Willow’s heart even more when she announces she has no idea who the young woman is!
However, all that changes the moment she sets eyes on Toadie. Andrea suddenly becomes calm and settled, and her face lights up at the sight of him. She affectionately takes Toadie into her arms and hangs on to him, not wanting to let go! Toadie is confused by her behaviour, as she can only recognise him and no-one else. When she begins speaking clearly and coherently, Andrea’s dramatic
change in behaviour continues to stun all those watching.
It’s when she seems at her most lucid that Andrea leans in to Toadie and says she has something important to tell him. “I’m not Andrea,” she says. “I’m actually Dee, I’m your wife. Toadie, I never stopped loving you.”
Woah! Toadie is so distressed by her words that he breaks free of her clutches! After everything Andrea has done to him over the past 18 months, turning his life upside down and almost ruining his marriage to Sonya, he will not let Andrea do this all over again!
But the intent look on Andrea’s face as she stares at Toadie almost tears him apart. It’s the very same way Dee used to look at him all those years ago, and it’s both chilling and haunting to experience these feelings all over again.
Watching on as all this unfolds is Sonya, and she’s not buying any of Andrea’s performance. Having had this woman destroy her marriage once before, Sonya decides she’s not about to allow it to happen all over again.
As the drama unfolds around her, a cool Sonya announces it would be best for everyone if Andrea was brought out of her current psychosis and finally made to confront the mayhem she’s caused in all their lives! Sonya says she wants Andrea to stop this charade, admit she is not Dee and pay back the money she owes them.
Her words cut through the chaos like a knife. To some, it might sound cold and callous, but Sonya knows exactly what she is doing. Andrea’s a sneaky game player, so Sonya decides if she wants to act the goat, she will set the rules that Andrea will have to follow.
This time around, Andrea might just have met her match in a strong and far wiser Sonya – if only Andrea wasn’t already one step ahead of the lot of them!
