Neighbours reveals a new dilemma for Karl and Susan Kennedy next week as Rita Newland confesses her true intentions.
When Rita (Lisa Kay) asks for a meeting with the Kennedys, they're both very intrigued over why she wants Susan to be there alongside Karl.
All becomes clear when Rita explains that she wants Karl (Alan Fletcher) to support her instigating a series of MS treatment trials at the Erinsborough Hospital.
Not only would this have the potential to massively boost the profits and reputation of Rita's company if everything goes well, the treatment could change lives for the better – including Susan's.
After taking some time to consider the dilemma, Karl decides that he can't be part of Rita's plans, as he's already decided to cut back on his work commitments while he recovers from his recent health scare.
Karl also resents the fact that Rita hid her real motivations for so long and seemingly tried to use Susan's MS as emotional blackmail.
Despite all of this, a very intrigued Susan (Jackie Woodburne) can't help researching the MS trials herself behind Karl's back.
A few days later, Susan finally bites the bullet by telling Karl that she wants to be involved in Rita's trial.
Karl loyally promises to support his wife, which means him going back to work – but the biggest obstacle afterwards is explaining everything to Clive Gibbons.
Wary of Rita's motivations and the trial's legitimacy, Clive warns the Kennedys that he won't support their motion.
Karl is left with no choice but to go up against his friend, but how will he manage it and who'll come out on top?
Neighbours airs these scenes on Monday, May 28 and Friday, June 1 at 1.45pm and 5.30pm on Channel 5.
