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).
