Act­ing on Im­pulse

A SUR­PRISE DE­VEL­OP­MENT IN­VOLV­ING Chloe RAT­TLES Elly AND THE PLANS SHE IM­PUL­SIVELY MAKES TO MARRY Mark...

Soap World - - AUSSIE PRIMETIME -

Firmly en­sconced as a mem­ber of the Bren­nan fam­ily now that she’s get­ting se­ri­ous with Mark, Elly has also de­vel­oped a close per­sonal re­la­tion­ship as a good friend and con­fi­dante to his of­ten-trou­bled sis­ter Chloe. Af­ter Elly sup­ports Chloe through the rev­e­la­tion of her Hunt­ing­ton’s Dis­ease di­ag­no­sis, Chloe is keen to re­pay the ef­forts when Elly is dealt a se­vere ca­reer blow.

Whisk­ing Elly (Jodi Anasta) off for an af­ter­noon of lush pam­per­ing, Chloe (April Rose Pengilly) suc­ceeds in boost­ing her spir­its – but as they con­nect over each other’s per­sonal prob­lems, she shocks Elly be­yond be­lief when she im­pul­sively kisses her! In­ter­rupted as she’s about to de­mand what the hell was be­hind it, Elly also acts on the over­whelm­ing urge to so­lid­ify her re­la­tion­ship with Mark (Scott McGre­gor). Re­it­er­at­ing to him that her love is

un­con­di­tional, Elly asks Mark to marry her! Caught up in the big mo­ment, Chloe des­per­ately begs Elly to be­lieve that their kiss was a non-event... but in pri­vate it’s clear that Chloe is fall­ing ex­tremely hard for her brother’s lover.

Un­able to keep bury­ing her feel­ings, Chloe starts drink­ing as a dis­trac­tion, but as she gets drunker and al­most spills the truth to her fam­ily, a car­ing Elly begs her friend not to self-de­struct.

How­ever, Chloe isn’t lis­ten­ing and slurs that she re­ally loves Elly! Sober­ing up, Chloe des­per­ately at­tempts dam­age con­trol, but when Elly ac­cepts her ex­pla­na­tion and tries ce­ment­ing their friend­ship with a bold in­vi­ta­tion, Chloe is hope­lessly trapped in a mass of con­flicted feel­ings. Strug­gling to keep her feel­ings quiet, her heart is se­cretly break­ing, pro­vok­ing an­other ben­der and fu­elling Elly’s fears she’s on a spi­ral. Con­fronting her, Elly’s flum­moxed when Chloe harshly shuts her down, un­able to face the truth.

In an un­guarded pri­vate mo­ment, Chloe’s com­pelled to un­bur­den her heart, pro­fess­ing her love for Elly in a long Xmas let­ter; but as the agony of wait­ing to see how Elly will re­spond over­whelms her, Chloe is a tick­ing time­bomb of pas­sion­ate fris­son – just wait­ing to ex­plode! When she does, the truth of her feel­ings could have quite cat­a­strophic con­se­quences for her and Elly’s fu­ture with Mark!

Elly pops the big ques­tion to Mark!
