As the final day of Finn Kelly’s hearing arrives, Elly Conway is in a spin after coming face-to-face with her recent one-night stand, Shaun Watkins, and discovering he is Finn’s half-brother!
Shaun reels from the revelation he is the father of Elly’s unborn baby – a secret she has been keeping from her husband, Mark Brennan. But Shaun unexpectedly agrees not to make trouble, if she agrees to help Finn in court…
So, everyone’s surprised when Elly takes to the stand in court and instead of laying into one-time lover Finn, she practically excuses all the terrible things he’s done to her, sister Bea Nilsson and their family.
There’s anger in court, when the judge rules Finn is no longer a threat and will not be sent to prison. Instead he’ll be released into ‘supervised housing’.
But there’s another shock in store, when Shaun blackmails Elly into convincing the Kennedy family to allow Finn to move in with them in Ramsay Street until he’s properly back on his feet! If she does, Shaun promises he’ll leave town and nobody will ever find out he’s her baby’s father.
Can Elly convince her aunt Susan Kennedy and her husband Karl to take in Erinsborough’s most hated man?
