Neighbours teen Mackenzie Hargreaves is left distraught next week as Shane Rebecchi makes a guilty confession about the past.
Mackenzie (Georgie Stone) can't believe what she's hearing as Shane admits that he's partly to blame for one of the most upsetting days of her life.
The pair's ongoing storyline has seen Shane (Nicholas Coghlan) loyally support Mackenzie as she tries to track down her father Grant.
Upcoming scenes also see Shane jump to Mackenzie's defence as she faces transphobia at Erinsborough High, but it seems that he may be overcompensating for his own past mistakes.
When Shane gets a strong lead on where Grant may be, Mackenzie fears that she's setting herself up for a fall by reaching out to the father who once rejected her.
Mackenzie opens up to Shane about how Grant once burned all of her feminine belongings, unable to accept her for who she is.
This revelation leaves Shane deeply shaken, as he realises that Grant's act of cruelty directly stemmed from some bad advice that he'd given at the time.
When Shane confides in his wife Dipi (Sharon Johal), she's sympathetic but advises that it's best to tell Mackenzie the truth before she hears it from anyone else.
Bracing himself, Shane meets up with Mackenzie at Lassiters Lake and confesses his involvement.
Mackenzie is shattered to learn that Shane – now her greatest defender – played a crucial role in such an upsetting moment, which ultimately destroyed her family. Can she ever forgive him for this?
Neighbours airs these scenes on Friday, September 27 at 1.45pm and 5.30pm on Channel 5 (UK) and 6.30pm on 10 Peach (Australia).
