Dis­turb­ing be­hav­iour

Hope of a re­union for Toadie and Sonya fades when they clash over how to deal with their trou­bled daugh­ter

TV Soap - - Primetime -

They were so close to get­ting back to­gether af­ter a tu­mul­tuous pe­riod of heartache and be­trayal but Toadie and Sonya look like they’re headed back to square one. The two have made so much progress towards be­com­ing a cou­ple again but a shock rev­e­la­tion about Nell is about to change all that. Toadie (Ryan Moloney) and Sonya (Eve Morey) front up to Nell’s (Scar­lett An­der­son) par­ent-teacher meet­ing to­gether but are stunned to hear their daugh­ter isn’t do­ing so well and isn’t ready to start pri­mary school. The news hits Toadie and Sonya like a ton of bricks as they re­alise the im­pact of their mar­riage prob­lems on their lit­tle girl. Their fam­ily trou­bles hark back to Sonya’s desire to be a sur­ro­gate for Mark (Scott McGre­gor) and Steph’s (Carla Bon­ner) baby and the re­turn of Toadie’s late wife Dee (Madeleine West) who turned out to be scam artist An­drea. Then Toadie com­mit­ted the ul­ti­mate be­trayal and slept with An­drea, which Sonya un­wit­tingly saw via Skype.

The dis­loy­alty shat­tered their mar­riage. In deal­ing with the pain of Toadie’s ac­tions and the grief over los­ing Mark’s un­born baby Sonya turned to al­co­hol af­ter a lengthy pe­riod of so­bri­ety. All of this im­pacted on lit­tle Nell and now the signs are start­ing to show.

While Toadie wants Nell to see a psy­chol­o­gist Sonya thinks the best thing would be to spend more time as a fam­ily. How­ever she re­jects Toadie’s sug­ges­tion they move back in to­gether, wor­ried it’s too soon and that any more ar­gu­ments would only cause more dam­age to Nell.

But the sit­u­a­tion reaches fever pitch when Nell has a fu­ri­ous tantrum while with Mark, which is very un­like sweet, well-be­haved Nell. Mark is so shocked by it he calls Toadie to in­ter­vene. Toadie de­cides right then to book in with a psy­chol­o­gist, against Sonya’s wishes. How will Sonya re­act?

DI­VIDED PAIR Toadie (Ryan Maloney) and Sonya (Eve Morey) fight about Nell.
