Neighbours spoilers follow for UK and Australian viewers.
Neighbours sees a sad death on Australian screens next week, with Chloe and Aaron Brennan grieving in different ways.
10 Peach viewers have recently seen Fay Brennan, who has Huntington's disease, returning to Ramsay Street to spend time with her children. It turns out to be her final visit, as she passes away in Erinsborough (via TV Week magazine).
In upcoming scenes, Chloe (April Rose Pengilly), Aaron (Matt Wilson), David Tanaka (Takaya Honda), and Nicolette Stone (Charlotte Chimes) are with Fay (Zoe Bertram) when she dies.
Devastated by the loss, Chloe seeks to feel love and turns to Nicolette for comfort. Things have been awkward between Chloe and Nicolette lately, with Chloe recently ending their friendship. But Chloe ends up making an unexpected proposition.
Nicolette responds by respectfully turning Chloe down.
"Chloe is mortified when Nicolette turns her down when she needs her most. She feels foolish and embarrassed," Pengilly explained to TV Week.
At the same time, Aaron responds to Fay's death by angrily and unfairly lashing out at David. He puts the blame on his husband over failing to spot his mother's deteriorating health sooner.
Instead of pushing him away, an understanding David gets through to Aaron.
"After talking through it, Aaron is able to cope with his grief in a healthier way rather than taking it out on those around him," Wilson said.
These scenes air in the UK in five weeks' time.
Neighbours airs weekdays at 1.45pm and 5.30pm on Channel 5 (UK) and 6.30pm on 10 Peach (Australia).
