I'm glad Summer is gone too. Am kind of over Tash and Andrew and the whole hang up about telling Summer, when Summer and Andrew are the ones who cheated in Tash in the first place.

Also, please don't revisit Karl and Susan saga.

March 4th - 8th Spoilers
neighboursfans.com

Monday 4 March 2013
Faced with the school board meeting and Brian's slanderous accusations, Priya is determined to defend herself.  However, it seems this horrible scandal could be the event that brings her and Ajay back together. Even Paul extends a hand of friendship when the school board takes action against the maligned teacher.

Mason and Bailey discover where the money has gone.

Mason remains persistent with his efforts to woo Kate, but she discovers he is not who he claims to be. Not knowing her history, this little white lie looks to be a deal breaker for the newcomer.

Tuesday 5 March 2013
Mason continues his pursuit of Kate and while she rejects his advances, she can't help feeling flattered by his amorous attention.

Lou uncovers his grandson’s secret,  will he cover for them or be loyal to his friend?.

With gossip rife about her mum, Rani's first day back at school isn't ideal. She is still harbouring guilt over the whole incident, and is angry that Alistair's dad is causing trouble.

Not so sure about the new kid, Chris encourages Lucas to make sure Mason's references check out. Not aware of Mason's stint in juvenile detention, Lou also starts to wonder why his family is being so vague with him.

Wednesday 6 March 2013
Chris is flummoxed when Scotty says something that could be misconstrued as a romantic advance.

Will Tash abandon her month-long vow of celibacy early?

Ramsay Street loves a fundraiser, and tonight Georgia takes the lead in organising a fundraiser for a neonatal unit at Erinsborough Hospital.

When the band she has booked for the event doesn't show, the bubbly blonde takes the night's entertainment into her own hands.

The show that's launched the pop careers of Kylie, Delta, Holly Valance and even Craig McLachlan (c'mon, we all secretly loved Mona), is now introducing a new star: Saskia Hampele aka Georgia Brooks. Her last minute performance could just save the night from disaster.


Thursday 7 March 2013
Still in high spirits after their reconciliation, Karl and Susan are keen to help Ajay and Priya get through their own relationship problems.
Wanting to provide a distraction for Priya and Ajay, Susan and Karl decide to invite them over for a dinner party. With Priya still reeling from being suspended, an untimely call offering Susan the job of Erinsborough High Principal makes for an awkward dinner gathering.

We all know how Toadie's first wedding ended, so it's no surprise he is a little nervous bout his impending nuptials to Sonya. Convinced he's cursed, Toadie transforms from our easy going neighbour into a groomzilla, obsessed with every detail of the big day.

Chris worries that Scotty is deceiving Georgia.
Chris is still sceptical about Scotty's sexuality. His instincts tell him Scotty might be gay, but after he shares his views with Kyle, he starts to question the whole idea. To get to the bottom of things, Chris decides to confront Scotty, but before he gets a chance to respond, Georgia interrupts, leaving the question hanging.

Friday 8 March 2013
Reaching rock bottom, Priya is shocked by an indecent proposal.

Paul's new development gathers steam but is it above board?

Although she's been doing her best to avoid Mason, even Kate can't resist spying on a shirtless man mowing the lawns. Her sneak peek doesn't go unpunished however, as she narrowly avoids missing hitting Sheila and her dog Bossy with her char. With Bossy off the lead and on on the run, it's up to Mason to save the day.

Could his reward for finding Bossy be a date with Kate?

They are, Sunnycat. Brad Willis (the patriarch of the 'new' family) is the old teenage surfer Willis son, played by Scott Michaelson (I've been watching Neighbours for a long time too... and way too avidly!)

Ariels IMBD. She was in the good old Saddleclub series.

Spoilers 18th - 22nd March
neighboursfans.com


18th March
Horrified to learn that Amber has been keeping relationship with Robbo a secret, Bailey urges Mason to tell her the truth about the break-in.
- It’s every big brother’s worst nightmare: their little sister getting caught up with the wrong guy. Despite trying, Mason and Bailey can’t seem to change Amber’s mind about Robbo and she continues to defend him. Desperate to get Robbo out of all their lives, Mason agrees to do one last job with him at Lassiter’s while the wedding reception is taking place.

Toadies wedding fears are confirmed.
-Connor calls in sick with food poisoning and Toadie is forced to ask Lucas to stand in. Jade, on her way back to Erinsborough for her sister’s wedding, is stuck in Seattle thanks to a snowstorm.

19th March
Tragically a gas bottle explodes at Toadie and Sonyas wedding reception collapsing the marquee and trapping Rhys and Priya inside.

Mason and Robbo’s plan to rob Lassiter’s hits a snag when the security guard isn’t on his scheduled break and Sonya spots the two young males in balaclavas. Wanting to enjoy her wedding day, Sonya gives her statement to the police and returns to the reception, failing to point out the distinct belt buckle she noticed one of the men wearing.

Kyle takes on MC duties as Toadie and Sonya continue their wedding celebrations with a very special dance routine. However, just as Sonya throws the bouquet to her excited guests, tragedy strikes.

20th March
Lives hang in the balance as the injured are raced to hospital. Toadie tries to convince Callum that Sonya is going to pull through but by the end of the day, a life will be lost.

Ajay finds Priya unconscious and pinned under a pillar. As Karl rushes to help, Rhys scrambles to safety but is clearly badly hurt. He has broken ribs and after much convincing goes to the hospital, but frustration prevails and he doesn’t listen to Karl’s advice about talking it easy.

Worried, Georgia tracks down Elaine and she comes to see Rhys. Thankful he’s ok and they resolve their differences about Rhys seeing his father. Sadly Rhys may never get to see his father, as he collapses outside the hospital.


21st March
Rani sits by Priyas bed waiting for her to wake from her coma so she can apologise for the fight they had before Priya was injured, but will she get the chance?

As Ajay and Rani wait for Priya to get out of surgery, Kyle is left to break the news of Rhys’ death to Vanessa and Elaine.

Karl tells Rani and Ajay that Priya is brain dead and alive only because of the machines helping her to breath. There’s no way of saving her and the devastation of losing two people in one week hits the Ramsay Street residents hard.

It’s been five days since the wedding and two funerals have taken place before Sonya finally wakes up with no memory of the day, including the robbery and of course Mason’s belt buckle.

22nd March
Scotty suggests to Georgia they elope and leave town for good.
-This is one week Erinsborough will never forget, including newest resident Scotty Boland. After convincing Georgie to elope to Queensland he’s confronted by Kyle and Chris’ allegation that he is, and we quote, ‘into dudes’.

Not the ideal way of coming out, but Scotty’s lost for words and his reaction clearly has Georgia concerned there’s some truth to these rumours.

Sonya struggles with her memory loss as a result of the explosion.
