Neighbours fans will see Finn Kelly left distraught next week as he learns that his younger brother Shaun Watkins is feared dead.
Finn (Rob Mills) feels powerless as he waits anxiously for confirmation of Shaun's fate following a tragedy abroad.
The storyline begins when Finn receives an upsetting phone call to let him know that there has been an avalanche in Switzerland, where Shaun (Brad Moller) is away travelling.
Finn immediately fears the worst as Shaun is missing after the disaster, but Elly Conway (Jodi Anasta) – who's expecting Shaun's baby – feels differently and tries her best to remain hopeful.
Another upsetting update soon follows, as Finn hears that three dead bodies have been found but are yet to be identified.
Elly is still desperate to believe that Shaun is okay, but her attitude frustrates Finn as he thinks that she's ignoring the facts and being delusional.
Finn's girlfriend Bea Nilsson (Bonnie Anderson) finds herself caught in the middle of the tensions, wanting to support her partner and her sister at this difficult time.
As everyone takes some time to cool off, Elly admits to Toadie Rebecchi that she's clinging onto hope because she doesn't want her child to grow up without a father.
Elly eventually seeks out Finn and apologises to him for being so forceful with her belief that everything would be okay. Taking a more realistic approach, she finally admits that the situation seems dire and she's deeply worried too.
Finn also backs down slightly, accepting Elly's earlier point that there's some small hope left for Shaun. All they can do is comfort each other as they await more news on the avalanche – will they ever see Shaun again?
