19 "Neighbours" Storylines That Went Way, Way Too Far

Paul's really had a bad run.

Posted on

Recently we asked members of the BuzzFeed Community to share with us their favourite WTF storylines from Neighbours. Here are some of the best answers:

1. Paul fell off a cliff and had to get his leg amputated. Then he walked with a limp for a while... but sometimes his limp switched legs.

2. When Julie's dog went missing she, straight-up and with 100% sincerity, accused her Chinese neighbours, The Lims, of eating him.

3. There was a tornado that ripped through Erinsborough. Lou got trapped under a beam at Harold's store, and Susan had to cut his throat open when he choked on a piece of food.

4. There was an entire scene of Bouncer the dog dreaming about his one true love, Rosie. They frolicked amongst plastic flowers while flute music played.

5. An alarming number of Paul's children who he had no idea about came out of the woodwork over the years.

6. And then one of his sons actually turned out to be an evil triplet with abandonment issues.

When Elle's twin, Cameron, appeared in Erinsborough, everything seemed great. But it turns out he was a THIRD sibling, who had put the real Cameron in a coma and stolen his identity. He then proceeded to try to poison Paul, plant a bomb on a plane that killed the Bishops, left Paul for dead in a mineshaft, tried to kill Elle with a car bomb, and shot Paul at his wedding.

9. Harold disappeared on a coastal walk, leaving nothing behind but his glasses, and was presumed dead. He came back five years later, after being rescued by a fisherman. Oh, and when he came back he thought his name was Ted.
