Neighbours bad boy Finn Kelly (Rob Mills) wakes up from his coma on Wednesday 6 March months after Susan Kennedy (Jackie Woodburne) pushed him off a cliff during a heated confrontation, but there’s a twist – the toxic ex-teacher has amnesia and thinks it’s 2007, meaning he has no memory of the calculating crimes he committed. Is he telling the truth?
News reaches Ramsay Street the psychopath has opened his eyes and the Kennedys fear he could pose a threat to the family once more. The women Finn has tormented have differing reactions to his stirring, with Elly Conway wanting to stay detached from the situation, Bea Nilssen scared he could evade justice on medical grounds, and Susan Kennedy releasing her guilt at being the person responsible for injuring him in the first place.
Bea doesn’t buy the amnesia diagnosis for once minute, immediately assuming it’s another of her ex’s mind games in the name of self-preservation. Having suffered with retrograde amnesia herself some years back after falling and hitting her head, Susan decides she will visit Finn in hospital and if he’s faking she’ll be able to detect it.
The last time the old foes faced each other it didn’t end well for Finn, as Susan lashed out and threw him off the cliff face to stop him killing one of his victims as they tracked him down in the woods, so what will happen when they see each other again? And let’s not forget when Finn was first unconscious in hospital guilt-ridden Susan contemplated killing him by hovering a pillow over his face, desperate to keep her shock secret that she had pushed him.
So either way, Finn better watch out – if Susan thinks he’s lying about the memory loss as a way to avoid paying for what he did she won’t hesitate to take action…
But what about fragile Bea, still scarred from the psychological manipulation and attempted assault she was forced to endure at Finn’s hand? Could she have revenge in mind while he’s at his most vulnerable?
