Elly’s head­strong sis­ter is be­ing played like a fid­dle by Finn/Pa­trick, and it isn’t go­ing to end well for any­body on Neigh­bours.

“He’s now fix­ated on get­ting back at Elly any way he can.”

Afam­ily re­union is usu­ally an ex­cit­ing time, heady with an­tic­i­pa­tion. That is, of course, un­less it’s the Con­way clan – par­tic­u­larly sis­ters Elly and Bea.

With Bea (Bon­nie An­der­son) hav­ing only just ar­rived in Erins­bor­ough and the sib­lings now re­u­nited, up­com­ing episodes of Neigh­bours will prove life can never be the same again for Elly (Jodi Anasta).

Bea is the wild child of the Con­ways, and has the knack of turn­ing any sit­u­a­tion into an or­deal by whip­ping ev­ery­thing up into a hurricane. From the mo­ment Elly sees Bea again, a wave of anx­i­ety crashes down upon her, as she knows her world is about to turned up­side down. Bea just has a way of mak­ing life so com­pli­cated!

Bea is in­stantly guarded and sus­pi­cious of ev­ery­one she meets in Erins­bor­ough, want­ing to know who they are and what their story is. She also re­veals she’s no pushover, with a mind that’s as sharp as a tack, and a fiery, eas­ily-trig­gered tem­per never too far be­hind.

Elly can only look on with fear as no mat­ter where Bea goes in Erins­bor­ough, she man­ages to ruf­fle feath­ers and stir up trou­ble. While Elly is pleased to see her sis­ter, she also wor­ries as Bea just seems so full of re­sent­ment and anger over the past. Bea al­ways felt like she was a bit ne­glected and is con­vinced Elly was al­ways the favourite.

What Elly isn’t aware of, how­ever, is the way Bea is ma­nip­u­lated by a man named Pa­trick, whom she’s be­friended. He seems to have some kind of hold over Bea, as she does ev­ery­thing he asks and obeys his re­quests with­out any ques­tions.

What’s most dis­turb­ing of all is the way Pa­trick keeps drilling for in­for­ma­tion about Elly – her back­ground, her fam­ily his­tory and what she’s up to these days. Pa­trick seems fas­ci­nated by Bea’s sis­ter, and Bea keeps telling him ev­ery­thing he wants to know.

What Bea has no idea about is that Pa­trick is ac­tu­ally Finn Kelly (Rob Mills), who has re­turned to Ram­say Street with only one thing on his mind – re­venge on his ex, Elly. He’s spent months in prison for the crimes he com­mit­ted the last time he was in Erins­bor­ough. He’s now fix­ated on get­ting back at Elly... any way he can!

Finn de­cides his best means of do­ing this is via Bea, who is en­joy­ing the at­ten­tion of the charm­ing man and so sim­ply does as she’s told.

Fol­low­ing Finn’s in­struc­tions to spend more one-on-one time with Elly, Bea seems to be cre­at­ing

a new bond with her sis­ter. Elly is ini­tially thrilled her sis has taken a real in­ter­est in her life, and so sug­gests she hang around Erins­bor­ough for a bit.

Finn in­structs her to con­tinue to find ev­ery chance she can to dig deep into her sis­ter’s past, and even bring­ing up de­tails of their child­hood if nec­es­sary to get the in­for­ma­tion.

He then in­structs her to be­friend Xan­the (Lilly Van der Meer), and it soon be­comes ob­vi­ous Finn has plans for her as well. By this stage, Bea’s do­ing as she’s told, and takes ev­ery op­por­tu­nity to build a new re­la­tion­ship with Xan­the.

What Finn doesn’t re­alise, how­ever, is that the more Bea in­gra­ti­ates her­self into ev­ery as­pect of Elly’s life, it be­comes only a mat­ter of time be­fore the tale of what Finn did to Elly the last time he was in Erins­bor­ough crops up in con­ver­sa­tion.

While Bea’s gullible, she’s not stupid – and it’s only a mat­ter of time be­fore she puts to­gether all the pieces of the puz­zle Finn’s in­struct­ing her to find, and draws her own con­clu­sions.

So it’s now a race against time be­fore Bea man­ages to work out that the man she knows as Pa­trick is ac­tu­ally Finn, and twigs that he’ll put all of them in peril!. But the clock is tick­ing, as evil ge­nius Finn has clear mo­tives and plans, and his re­venge plan against Elly is


Finn (Rob Mills) pre­tends to be Pa­trick so he can charm Bea (Bon­nie An­der­son).
