As of the 2021 season Neighbor in Britain and Australia reaches its climax, Teresa’s decline in alcoholism endangers her life.
It’s been a great year for Terese Willis (Rebekah Elmaloglou).
The savvy businesswoman began 2021 by taking a stand against Australia Day and acknowledging how her words in the past and her attitude towards the day were offensive to the people of First Nations in Australia.
She was forced to judge the rivalry between Amy (Jacinta Stapleton) and Roxy (Zima Anderson) as the couple fought for the role of manager at Flamingo Bar.
So, after learning that confidential information was being leaked to the Quill Group, Terese discovered that Jesse Porter (Cameron Robbie) was in fact the illegitimate son of Julie Quill – the woman responsible for the death of her son, Josh ( Harley Bonner), back. in 2016.
As if all that was not enough, after learning that Paul (Stefan Dennis) paid Nicolette (Charlotte Chimes) in exchange for her child and planned against both Jesse and Brent (Texas Watterston), Terese asked for a separation from her husband, just two years after they got married.
Ever since, he’s done everything he can to win her back … to no avail!
The arrival of Paul’s half-brother Glen (Richard Huggett) threw another key into action.
Not only did he admit he was back in Erinsborough to protect Terese and win his love, but he also found her wedding ring on the beach in Queensland, which she took off when she fell back into alcoholism.
Since his intervention, Terese has found herself in doubt about her marriage like never before.
Next week, she allows herself to get close to Paul again. At the police ball, she is courted by his charm and gives in to his request for one dance.
At the moment, it is almost as if they had just gotten married. As the couple shares the intimate moment, Paul rejoices that he is back in his wife’s circuit.
But for Terese, it pushes her over the edge.
She hurries off and finds herself hitting the bottle again. Luckily, Glen stumbles over her and is able to comfort her once more, but is horrified when he discovers that she is talking horribly about getting back with Paul.
Then, in the last week of the year, the drama escalates.
After their dance and her drunken night, Terese agrees to Paul’s idea of attending marriage counseling. She is surprised when Paul suggests it, and thinks that it might be a sign that he is really willing to change if it means saving their relationship.
Unfortunately, even though Paul hoped it would bring the couple together, the only thing it does is to drive a wedge further between them, as it turns out the couple has different prospects.
And it looks like this could be enough to push Terese over the edge.
As Christmas approaches, Lassiter’s General Manager, who is now completely in the clutches of her alcoholism, decides she will not spend time with any of her loved ones. Terese invents a lie to achieve her goal, but it seems that her choice will endanger her life.
On the way up to Lassiter’s roof terrace for a lonely Christmas, Terese pampers herself with a bottle of wine.
It does not take long before she is caught red-handed by Harlow (Jemma Donovan), who has been nothing more than an interference trying to push her and Paul back together. With the truth obvious, Terese is horrified.
Even worse, Harlow tries to show Terese, the private detective’s report into Glen, an attempt to prove that he can not be trusted and that Terese should choose her grandfather over the newcomer.
Terese is tired of Harlow’s medals and goes to throw the report out of the building. Unfortunately, she is unstable on her feet, and when she throws the report, she finds herself getting started on it!
A drunk Terese stumbles over the edge of Lassiter’s roof terrace. With the bottom of the Lassiters complex ten stories down, the only thing she can do is hold on to life!
Will she suffer the same eerie fate as her brother-in-law Glen back in 1992? Or is there a knight in shining armor just around the corner waiting to save her?
