Neighbours airs a dramatic siege next week when a crazed gun man storms the Waterhole and holds the punters hostage, putting the lives of several Ramsay Street residents in danger.
Leo Tanaka (Tim Kano) is being blackmailed by minxy Delaney Renshaw (Ella Newton) who has forced him into dumping Terese Willis (Rebekah Elmaloglou) and start a relationship with her, threatening under to turn her gangster family on him if he doesn’t comply – seeing as Leo was the police informant who put members of her criminal clan in prison, Mr Tanaka is struggling to escape her grip.
Delaney also revealed to Leo’s dad Paul Robinson (Stefan Dennis) over Christmas the bombshell that he is inadvertently responsible for the death of Renshaw associate Mannix, so the feisty blonde has got the whole family over a barrel.
Next week, Leo tries to push Delaney away and gets tired of her demands, but his gangster past comes back to haunt him in a big way on Friday 11 January when Delaney’s uncle Ivan makes a surprise appearance at the Lassiters bar wielding a shotgun.
Pointing it at Leo, with Paul and Terese looking on, the pub is gripped with fear as a dramatic siege begins – will Leo get shot as the Renshaws seek a deadly revenge? Or will someone else pay the price for Leo’s past misdemeanours?
