Paul Robinson (Stefan Dennis) is a pinnacle of the Neighbours community, having been on the show in some capacity since the Channel 5 soap first aired in 1985. Since then, he has been at death’s door several times but seems to be a cat with nine lives as he has survived every time. However, when a siege goes down at Erinsborough High in upcoming scenes, his luck could run out as a terrifying drugs scandal reaches a deadly climax.
The drama begins when Yashvi Rebecchi (Olivia Junkeer) continues with her investigation into illegal activity going on at the high school, despite being suspended from duty.
Scenes which will air on UK screens in the next few weeks will see the young officer relieved from her position after a mysterious character called River (Andrew Coshan) claims she assaulted him.
What she doesn’t realise is her superior Dax Braddock (Dean Kirkright) is actually corrupt and is the mastermind behind the drugs scandal.
This makes her mission to track down the dealer even more terrifying and when she tells the detective about her suspicions, he tasers her.
With no choice but to follow his orders, the youngster quickly finds herself drawing more people into the danger hostage situation, including Paul.
