One of the biggest fan requests was just fulfilled by Neighbours when Paul Robinson’s (Stefan Dennis) kids appeared in a scene together for the first time.
In the 37-year history of the Australian soap opera, the businessman’s children have occasionally appeared as stalwarts, but they have never simultaneously appeared on screen.
But on Wednesday’s (July 20) episode of the Channel 5 series, the Robinson family came together for the first time, and it filled our hearts to the brim.
Viewers are aware that Paul is now working to gather the money necessary to pay Terese Willis (Rebekah Elmaloglou), the woman who is divorcing him.
When he proposed to purchase into the hotel, he had believed that Shane Ramsay (Peter O’Brien) would be the answer to his prayers. However, Shane eventually withdrew his offer after learning just how shady Paul had been over the years.
However, Shane made a counteroffer, telling Paul that he’ll be happy to buy him out of Lassiters, giving Paul much to consider.
Meanwhile, Leo Tanaka (Tim Kano) organised a small surprise for his father in the form of a video call with the majority of his kids out of concern for him!
Paul was startled when he sat down in front of a big TV and saw Elle (Pippa Black), Andrew (Jordan Patrick Smith), Amy Williams (Zoe Crammond), and Leo and David Tanaka (Takaya Honda) all staring back at him.
Elle, Andrew, and Amy talked about life in New York City while referencing recent successes and events including Elle’s most recent piece, Amy’s new boyfriend, and Andrew’s trip with Natasha Williams (Valentina Novakovic).
David expressed his surprise at how frequently his siblings connected, saying he felt like he had “lost out on so much.” Elle then suggested that he and Leo move to New York to join them.
While this was going on, Andrew made the remark that Paul should think about moving in with his family in the never-ending metropolis since he was contemplating selling his beloved Lassiters.
After that, Paul went for a stroll around the Lassiters complex and the neighbourhood, clearly considering the thought of selling everything and leaving Erinsborough behind.
Will he do so is the key question.
That remains to be seen, but we are still in awe of the Robinson family’s recent appearance in a scene as a whole.
Paul has a total of seven kids. While his brother Cameron Robinson (Adam Hunter) is deceased, Robert Robinson is presently incarcerated.
Since Elle first appeared in Neighbours from 2005 to 2009 and Andrew’s main run in the serial began in 2009 and ended in 2013, neither character appeared when Amy made her debut in 2015 or when David and Leo made theirs in 2016.
Thursday, July 21 at 1:45 and 6 p.m. on Channel 5, Neighbours continues.
