Neighbours theory: David Tanaka to exit as he’s sent to prison for life

    On Neighbours last month, David (Takaya Honda) struggled with guilt over his role in the death of Gareth Bateman (Jack Pearson), as he and Freya Wozniak (Phoebe Roberts) abandoned the man to die after the crimes he perpetrated at River Bend. No one knows what the two did right now since they’ve been meticulously hiding their tracks, or so they believed. Someone has been blackmailing them in recent scenes on the Channel 5 soap, but they can’t seem to find the mysterious stranger lurking in the shadows, so they decide to confess their faults.

    The drama will continue in next week’s episodes, when the blackmailer wants money from David and Freya, who do not have it.

    Freya turns to her estranged brother Zane Wozniak (Oli Pizzey-Stratford), who is joining the cast as a guest actor, for help.

    The visitor, undecided about whether or not to give his sister the money, is persuaded by Freya’s passionate request for assistance.

    The horror appears to be ended for the couple, and Freya’s relationship with her brother appears to be on the mend, but the issues do not end there.

    David chooses to key his car in an act of vengeance, believing his stalker, Dean Covey (Travis Cotton), is the blackmailer.

    When David meets Dean again, he realizes he has done the wrong thing, and his stalker has no idea what he is talking about.

    David and Freya both tell their supervisor Clive Gibbons (Geoff Paine) about what they did, knowing they have become paranoid and need to get rid of their dangerous secret.

    Not long after, the pair is interrogated by the cops, and Levi Canning (Ritchie Morris) is shocked to learn that his love interest Freya has been lying to him.

    When the authorities question them about why they left Gareth to die, they are shocked to learn who their blackmailer is.

    Despite their desire for justice for the suffering they’ve endured, it appears that it may be a case of too little, too late.

    Their loved ones provide them a lot of support because of all they’ve been through, but Levi is stuck in his ways.

    He finds it difficult to forgive Freya for hiding secrets from him once more, revealing their lack of trust.

    Despite facing difficulties in their personal lives, David and Freya are forced to retreat in order to defend themselves.

    They are both urged to use the fact that they have suffered from post-traumatic stress disorder since the events at River Bend, now that they have lawyers on their side.

    Legal counsel advises them that if they plead this manner, they may be able to walk away from their circumstances as free individuals.

    Viewers will have to wait and see if this defence is sufficient to keep them out of prison or if they will spend a lengthy time behind bars.

    Although Freya may be able to walk free because she was held half-hostage by Gareth, the courts may not be so kind to David.

    They could claim that despite knowing Gareth was the one who beat his husband Aaron Brennan (Matt Wilson) half to death, he should have responded professionally.

    David should have set his personal concerns aside and treated Gareth like any other patient in the hospital, according to the judge.

    Because of his prejudice against his husband’s assailant, the judge could sentence David to life in jail for murder.

    David, like his brother Robert Robinson (Adam Hunter), appears to be a serial killer, as he had every intention of torturing Gareth.

    Robert is currently receiving a life sentence in prison, and his younger brother appears to be joining him.

    This would signal the end of the adored character since the doctor would have no opportunity to redeem himself in the coming months.

    On Monday, August 1, 2022, the final episode of Neighbours will air, therefore these scenes of David heading to prison could be his final ones.

    Tanaka, who plays David, addressed what the future holds for his alter-ego when asked about this new approach for his character.

    The soap star told Inside Soap: “I don’t think anyone would predict what is coming. The audience, like David, are going to be really challenged by what unfolds.

    “I’ve always wanted this Breaking Bad kind tale,” he stated in another interview with What To Watch.

    “What circumstances might lead to David making choices that bring him closer in line with his lineage of being Paul Robinson’s son?

    “He’s always looked at Paul and Leo and thought, ‘I don’t understand why you guys do this, just do the right thing!’ It’s something that he’s repeated in so many different scenarios.

    “It will definitely offer up the question of who is David really and is the David we’ve known all along what actually lies beneath the surface.”
