    • No worries @Adamski, here's 2019:   Ali walked in on Kylie and Dylan and attempted to resuscitate Dylan but Dylan died. Ali later realised that Kylie had killed Dylan but then promptly forgot due to memory loss caused by his brain tumour.   Kate found Denise's money and blaming Denise for Mo's death, decided to keep it for herself. Kate also found out she was pregnant with Mo's baby.   Claire was suspected of killing her rapist Ian Reid, but Kylie provided her with an alibi. Later Jack (who recovered from the plane crash), Claire and Lincoln called off the surrogacy agreement when Nicole announced she was pregnant with Lincoln's child and wanted Jack and Lincoln to raise the baby. Leanne was furious and attempted to convince her daughter not to give her child up.   Te Rongopai began investigating a pharmaceuticals company for faulty IUDs. The Pharma company's lawyer Kelly-Anne turned out to be Damo's sister and briefly dated Boyd for a while.   Hawks turned up again after having broken up with Sass. Hawks began seeing Esther and also suffered from issues caused by his amputation. Hawks and Esther eventually broke up and Hawks left town.   Kylie began acting passive-aggressively, by undermining Nicole, taking her job and getting Kate offside - though she did help Blue when he decided that he wasn't ready to have Top surgery. Kylie also slept with Lincoln's brother Prince. Later on Kylie killed her former school teacher after learning he'd killed his wife. Ali soon started to remember what happened the night Dylan died. Kylie prepared to kill Ali, but couldn't go through with it. Ali died of the brain tumour soon afterwards, leaving Dawn devastated. Dawn relinquished custody of Ali's daughter Lucy to his mother.   Natalie returned to investigate the mysterious deaths of Ian Reid and the teacher. She began dating Boyd to garner information about Kylie. Soon after Natalie learned that Boyd was still in contact with Eve and tried to convince him to turn her in. Boyd was willing to along with the plan, but at the last minute changed his mind. Boyd and Natalie broke up.   Lincoln started using meth again and was arrested at the same time that Nicole went into premature labour with their daughter Kiri. By the time Lincoln was released, it was too late: Kiri had passed away. A guilt stricken Lincoln fled town, leaving Jack and Nicole to mourn the loss of the child.   After Ali's death, Dawn grew close to Jean King, an elderly patient with dementia. Dawn contacted Jean's family and Jean's son Ben, his wife Cece and their two children Louis (actually Cece's stepson) and Sophia came to Ferndale. Ben, a doctor, and Cece, a social worker, got jobs at the hospital. Sophia was a pyromaniac and burned down the room at the retirement home that Jean was supposed to move into.   Drew was jealous when Harper's ex Ross turned up. Ross worked at the hospital for a few weeks and then left.   Chris was impressed by the lifesaving actions of a lady taxi driver Zara Mandal, and helped her to get registered to practice in NZ after learning that Zara was a heart surgeon back in India. Zara's daughter Rani soon joined her and became friends with Sophia. Zara briefly dated both Boyd and Nicole.   Kylie confessed to TK that she had killed Dylan and possibly Ian Reid. The two slept together even though TK was with Te Rongopai. Te Rongopai was suspicious of Kylie and tried to find out if Kylie was a murderer, but Kylie managed to destroy her credibility. Later Te Rongopai learned that her ex husband had cancer and left town with her daughter.   Leanne confessed to Nicole and Damo that she had had a son whom she gave up for adoption. Nicole and Damo tracked him down. Now Leanne had another son, Eddie to obsess about. Meanwhile, Prince's ex Angel started working at reception and did not get along with Leanne. Angel started dating Eddie but the two almost broke up when Eddie slept with a still grieving Dawn. Later Angel and Eddie reconciled and helped him organise a music festival with money invested by Leanne. It predictably turned into Ferndale's version of the Fyre Festival when Eddie's business partners ran off with the money and all the acts cancelled. Eddie had a nervous breakdown and left Angel to deal with the riotous festival-goers. Nicole later figured out that Eddie was Bi-polar.   Ben and Esther grew closer after the helped rescue a kidnapped baby which brought back issues for Ben. After Ben's mother, Jean committed suicide, Ben turned to Esther for support and the two started kissing. The next day, Esther revealed to Kylie that she'd changed her mind once they got to the bedroom but Ben hadn't stopped when she said no. Kylie convinced Esther to press charges. Ben denied raping Esther but it was evident Cece believed her because Ben had been forceful with her when they had first gotten together. The police declined to pursue the matter due to lack of evidence and an enraged Sophia torched Esther's car, leading to her being committed to a psychiatric ward. Ben later realised that Esther's version of events was true and apologised, offering to quit his job at Shortland Street if necessary. Accepting that Ben was now remorseful, Esther decided to put the matter behind her and allowed Ben to continue working at the hospital.   Kate and Chris got back together, but their reunion was interrupted by the arrival of Zoe, who correctly guessed that Chris and Kate didn't love each other anymore. The gangsters came back for the money Denise had been hiding and caused Kate to go into labour. After giving birth to a boy, Kate handed over the money to the police, ended things with Chris and left town with Zoe.   Jack had a new love interest Matiu (played by Amelia Reid's real life husband) and was not put off when Matiu revealed he was HIV positive. Later Margaret returned and revealed she had cancer. Matiu offered to help care for Margaret so that Jack could continue with his medical studies. The three moved away from Ferndale.   Boyd's blackmailer from the year before turned out to be Deb, the drug addicted nurse whom Eve had framed for murser in 2017. Kylie felt threatened by Deb and threatened her. Deb eventually found a job somewhere else.   Dylan's twin brother Daniel returned after trying to kill himself in a car accident. Kylie felt guilty and began nursing Daniel. Eventually Kylie told TK she loved Daniel. The two soon got married. Soon afterwards, Kylie became obsessed with a reverend and his pregnant wife. The wife died in childbirth and the reverend offered to let Kylie and Daniel adopt the premature baby who was still in NICU. Then a mad bomber announced they had put a bomb in the hospital. Kylie found the bomb in NICU and decided to blow herself up but the bomb didn't work. Kylie was admitted to a mental hospital and Daniel left her after learning she had killed Dylan. Kylie was then given electro-shock therapy and conveniently forgot the past year. Frustrated that she couldn't get Kylie, Natalie planted evidence that suggested Kylie had killed Ian Reid. However, Claire confessed to killing Ian Reid and Kylie was freed. Later, Kylie treated her psychiatrist at the hospital after he was beaten up by an obsessed patient. The patient had hacked into Kylie's files and mentioned the school teacher, which unnerved Kylie.   Zara's ex husband turned up and entered into a dodgy deal with Chris that gave him control over the hospital. Later Zara found out and managed to blackmail her brother-in-law for information so she could buy her ex-husband's share of the hospital. Zara and Chris also started a relationship.   Prince and Dawn grew closer, but Dawn announced she wanted to have Ali's baby with leftover frozen sperm (which she later changed her mind about). Angel and Prince got back together and got engaged. But Angel called it off after learning Prince kissed Dawn. Meanwhile Leanne left town with Eddie's father and Damo got together with Angel's mother Desi. Damo was also shot at one point and was the recipient of a live donor liver transplant from Drew. Harper also had her own medical issues when she had a tapeworm in her brain.   Louis learned that he had a twin brother Tommy and that his biological mother Vanessa had driven into a lake with him and Tommy while suffering from post-natal depression, resulting in Tommy's death. A well meaning Sophia contacted Vanessa, who revealed that she had discovered Ben and Cece were having an affair and that's what drove her psychotic breakdown. Louis left home for a while and stayed with Harper and Drew.   Louis started sleeping with Boyd's niece Shereez. After the mad bomber blew up a bomb near the school, Louis declared that he liked another girl. Shereez discovered she was pregnant, but had an abortion after Boyd refused to adopt the baby.   Sophia developed a crush on Blue, but Ben figured out that he was Blue's father since he and Kate had once hooked up. Sophia attempted to continue a relationship with Blue, but Blue rejected her. Kate came back to sort out this drama and made a pass at Chris, but Chris was committed to Zara. Blue eventually left to go overseas.   Louis had a surfing accident and was left paralysed.   Eddie and Esther started a relationship, and within weeks Esther learned she was pregnant.   Tim, Nicole's incel paramedic stalker from the year before, came back to Ferndale. At Eddie's urging, Nicole agreed to give him a chance since Tim said he had changed. Tim started dating Shereez, and while on a date, Tim risked his life to save a man who turned out to be the bomber. However it turns out that Tim is in league with the bomber.
    • Nikki continues to have a great month presswise.    
    • +1   The whole show is a big nothing burger.    Not showing Nate's hearing was the biggest indication tor that the whole things being half done. I would say budget reasons but they hired a named actor for this Chelsea story.  So my guts says they just didn't want to spend the money on those particular characters.    Speaking of Lauren and Michael, can someone please explain to me why they aren't allowed to hsvrstort?           
    • "The grave you're digging for Stephanie Lankcaster will be the grave. You. Rot. In"   I'd start a drinking game for everytime Stephanie Lankcaster says her own name, but I'd like to keep my liver.
    • No,that's not being played and it's to the detriment of these characters. Moreso, Nate than Devon since Devon is established already. That was my earlier complaint....maybe I didn't explain myself well enough.    They seem to find money for the hospital when they want to put victor or Lola in the bed. Lol   If the show us going to have full time characters as doctors, they need to have consistent medical drama to accompany that. Much like they manage to have constant crime when they have someone they care about working in the police station.
