Neighbours to air devastating death as Hendrix passes away
The character will lose his life in tragic scenes next week.
Hendrix Greyson (Ben Turland) is set to die in heartbreaking Neighbours scenes set to air on Channel 5 next week.
Viewers will remember that recently, Hendrix was diagnosed with pulmonary fibrosis as a result of a fire he became embroiled in when saving the life of soulmate Mackenzie Hargreaves (Georgie Stone). The doctor informed Hendrix that would need a lung transplant in order to survive, leaving the young man stunned.
As he came to terms with his diagnosis, Hendrix headed to Sydney with the unwavering support of Mackenzie, where he told parents Pierce (Tim Robards) and Lisa (Jane Allsop) the extent of his illness. Later, Hendrix proposed to Mackenzie, and as they celebrated they learned that a donor had been found for him already!
The news was almost overturned when Hendrix unintentionally upset the family of the donor, but Mackenzie saved the day. As they prepare for him to undergo the life-saving surgery, the couple will wed in a beautiful ceremony this week. But next week the situation is set to take a tragic turn.
Hendrix will initially find that his lung transplant has been successful. But later, he falls seriously ill once again - and it's revealed that his body is rejecting the organ. With just hours left to live, Hendrix will find the strength to fight through the pain to spend his cherished final moments with his loved ones. He will then take his last breath, leaving the residents of Ramsay Street broken.
As Mackenzie and many others struggle to cope in the aftermath, there's a surprise in store when Zara Zelwyn (Freya Van Dyke) reveals that Hendrix made a video for them - and they're all touched and grateful to hear from him one last time.
Mackenzie puts all her efforts into planning two memorials for her beloved husband, but she finds herself in a difficult position when both events are organised for the same day.
As the Australian soap gears up for its final farewell, it looks like the tears will be flowing already for fans when these scenes play out from next Monday 13th June.
