Neighbours’ Melanie Pearson to face sad struggle in Sonya storyline

Can Melanie deal with the ghost of Sonya?

Neighbours spoilers follow.

Toadie and Melanie are in a good place in Neighbours after they agreed to move in together, but memories of Sonya soon start to give Mel cause for concern.

To be fair to Melanie, living with the looming presence of your boyfriend’s dead ex is never ideal, and she has to deal with a giant mural of her at Lassiters, so Sonya is never far from anybody’s minds.

But next week sees Melanie really starting to struggle with it all, and hearing from everyone how beloved Sonya was only makes her feel more anxious about it than she already did.

Somewhat awkwardly given her potential feelings for Toadie, it is Amy that is there for Melanie when she returns from a date to find Melanie uncharacteristically down in the dumps.

While Melanie tries to play it down and acts like she is fine, Amy knows better and prods her until she reveals how insecure she is feeling.

While it was a confidential chat, Amy decides that Toadie needs to know how his girlfriend is feeling and wastes little time in telling him everything.

He is grateful for the heads-up, but Melanie feels as though Amy has betrayed her trust as she was hoping she could deal with it without involving Toadie at all.

But Amy could find herself forgiven quite quickly as a sit-down chat with Toadie is exactly what Melanie needed, and he has an open and honest chat with her about Sonya and how he sees Mel fitting into his life.

It would appear that these two are back in a good place, but will we hear the sound of wedding bells for them in the near future?

Toadie popped the question to Melanie recently and while she turned him down then, could she have a change of heart that will allow us to see one more – and final – Ramsay Street wedding before Neighbours comes to an end?
