A disturbing new twist for Terese Willis has aired on Neighbours, with Leo Tanaka now accusing her of Britney Barnes’ death.
Terese (Rebekah Elmaloglou) has already blamed herself for the storm-damaged Flamingo Bar, which resulted in Britney’s untimely death.
Britney’s devastated lover Leo finally uncovered what Terese has been hiding about the stormy night in Thursday’s show on Channel 5.
Following Britney’s death, Leo decided to sue the city council, feeling that someone should be held guilty.
Leo approached Chloe Brennan (April Rose Pengilly) and requested a copy of the Lassiters storm safety report as part of his efforts.
Chloe’s refusal to pass up the report right away piqued Leo’s interest since it seemed to indicate that the company had something to hide.
After a marriage counseling session, Terese and her estranged husband Paul (Stefan Dennis) returned to the penthouse.
Paul realized that his frequent involvement in his family’s affairs could be a response to traumas from his past, and the two appeared to have made progress by opening up to each other.
However, Leo stormed into the penthouse after obtaining a copy of the Lassiters safety report, interrupting the moment.
Leo confronted Terese and said, “How can you live with yourself?” despite Chloe’s protests that he’d read an incomplete version of the text.
When Terese asked what he was talking about, Leo explained: “The report on safety. The one who makes it quite plain that you are the cause of Britney’s death.”
Terese admitted to Chloe last week that seeing Glen Donnelly (Richard Huggett) and Sharon Canning (Natasha Herbert) together had distracted her from evacuating the Flamingo Bar during the storm.
With such tight constraints, Chloe pointed out that Terese’s delay would have made little impact.
Tim Kano, who plays Leo, told Digital Spy recently: “She had an opportunity to leave the pub earlier than it did, but she was preoccupied with her own personal problems.
“Leo definitely goes on the warpath against Terese, wanting someone to pay. He ends up doing his own research, as a true Robinson would, by snooping around to find out what could have been done.
“When the conclusion comes out that it could have been Terese’s fault, he definitely sees red and really goes for her.”
Is it possible to persuade Leo to change his mind, or is this the start of a long-term feud between him and Terese?
