Wendy and Andrew Rodwell faced some tension from their neighbours (Picture: Channel 5 / Fremantle)
The Rodwells’ plan to settle into Ramsay Street without any drama didn’t quite go as they’d hoped in Neighbours, as the truth about Hendrix Greyson’s (Benny Turland) condition was revealed.
Hendrix, as viewers know, was diagnosed with pulmonary fibrosis, which is a disease that occurs when the lung tissue is damaged. In Hendrix’ case, the fire at the school, is responsible.
His only treatment option is a lung transplant, which he’s struggled to get his head around, but his diagnosis has been difficult to process, given that the Rodwells have moved into Ramsay Street.
Sadie Rodwell (Emerald Chan), as viewers will recall, lit the fire at the school under Aubrey’s orders.
Her mum Wendy (Candice Leask) has been determined to make their move as seamless as possible, encouraging Sadie to make amends with everyone ahead of the barbecue she intended to throw.
Hendrix, meanwhile, was all set for a day out at the cinema with Mackenzie Hargreaves (Georgie Stone), but upon learning of the barbecue from Zara Zelwyn (Freya Van Dyke), it’s safe to say that he was fuming.
He lashed out, and ended up revealing his diagnosis to a stunned Zara, who subsequently told Amy Greenwood (Jacinta Stapleton) that she was no longer attending the barbecue.
The conversation caught the attention of fellow Ramsay Street residents, all who were attending the barbecue. Hendrix, however, soon started struggling for breath, prompting Wendy to head out onto the road to find out what was going on.

Mackenzie, however, was infuriated by Wendy and Andrew’s (Lloyd Will) presence, and let spill that Hendrix ‘could die’ if he doesn’t get a lung transplant, telling Sadie that it’s all her fault.
Will the Rodwells be able to co-exist on the same street as Hendrix? Or will Sadie’s mistake prove too hard for everyone to forgive?
