Neighbours spoilers follow.
Following Zara's (Freya Van Dyke) arrival in Erinsborough, a lot of relationships are on the rocks in Neighbours.
First, Zara walks in on her mother Amy (Jacinta Stapleton) in bed with Levi Canning (Richie Morris) and Ned Willis (Ben Hall), throwing a wrench into their polyamorous relationship.
As a result, Toadie is not happy with Zara, which leads to him having a falling out with Amy.
Toadie is annoyed by Zara's selfish and entitled behaviour and he loses his temper with her, while Zara plots her revenge against them: giving a jelly shot to Nell which is full vodka.
Toadie does all he can by warning Amy that Zara's behaviour is unacceptable and encourages her to discipline her daughter. But when Zara tells Amy that Toadie is being judgemental, it causes a huge argument between Amy and Toadie.
All Amy wants to do is reconnect with Zara and bond with her, and their relationship is already rocky due to Zara's horrified reaction towards Amy's polyamorous relationship.
Amy attempts to get Zara to settle in properly and says that she can only stay if she gets a job, with encouragement from Toadie and Susan. But, getting a job isn't going to get this troubled teen to give up her ways.
Zara later causes trouble for her mum's relationship, telling everyone that Levi tried to kiss her after asking Amy to cool things off with her boyfriends.
There's always family drama on Neighbours, but Zara's behaviour is hurting a lot of Amy's friends and particularly her boyfriends Levi and Ned. That leads Amy to wonder if the three-way relationship is really worth it, rather than considering that it could be Zara who's the real problem.
But, a mother's love for her child is not to be contested. So, how will the gang deal with Zara going forward, and will she learn the error of her ways?
