FIN FOR FINN?
PUNISHING Finn FOR HIS EVIL ACTIONS LEADS FOUR FRIGHTENED RAMSAY STREET WOMEN INTO A DISTURBING PACT...
The Neighbours brute takes a dramatic fall... is he dead?
Revenge has been uppermost in the minds of Ramsay Street’s residents since notorious monster Finn Kelly disappeared without trace after running down Xanthe and leaving Susan, Elly and Bea to rot. Now they may be about to get it...
Thanks to fellow criminal Jeremy Sluggett, Xanthe’s dad Gary now has crucial information pointing to Finn hiding out in a cottage about an hour out of Melbourne. Unfortunately, news of Finn’s imminent returns rattles his four victims, especially Bea who suffers from tormenting nightmare-induced insomnia.
Motivated to investigate Finn’s whereabouts after the police hit dead ends, Bea (Bonnie Anderson) takes ownership of her anxious need for closure by visiting the cottage herself. Alone, she’s relieved to initially discover only one of Finn’s discarded shirts before encountering the disturbing sight of Finn (Rob Mills) – in the flesh!
Cornered with nowhere to run, Bea manages to escape his clutches and flee before he hurts her... but that possibility narrows when Finn then menacingly orders her to prove herself by going to bed with him! Scared witless, Bea lashes out on instinct and runs out the door! Cowering in nearby scrub, Bea knows Finn’s in hot pursuit, but luckily for her so are Susan (Jackie Woodburne), Elly (Jodi Anasta) and Xanthe (Lilly Van der Meer). They’ve worked out that she’s gone after Finn when they learn that she never showed for her counselling session. Finally crossing their path, Bea’s momentarily relieved until Finn thwarts their urgent getaway.
Before any of them have time to think of their next
move, they’re staring down Finn in a tense confrontation on a clifftop that ends with them looking terrified at his crumpled, lifeless body!
In one harrowing instant, Susan, her two nieces and Xanthe become trapped under a veil of secrecy over what has actually happened in the wilderness. Maintaining their silence proves simpler than expected as all of their loved ones are completely unaware of where they went or what might’ve happened.
Wrestling with the mental and emotional demons from their various ordeals with Finn is another matter entirely. Over time, each of them shows signs of cracking under the pressure of the burden they’re carrying, with Bea the worse for wear. Despite her own mind being in uproar with visions of Finn, Susan works to be the calming influence for the three girls, until more insidious Finn-related revelations emerge, pushing her to the edge…
Soon after, one of the wayward women finds themselves in the police’s crosshairs as Detective Bill Graves (Robert Grubbs) reveals that he simply has no choice but to charge them with the attempted murder of Finn Kelly – and this is a state of affairs which could land them in jail for a rather lengthy stretch!
