Neighbors confirmed the storyline of Harold Bishop’s return

With the ending Neighbor before our eyes and the many returning cast members from years gone by, the Aussie soap has now revealed what Harold Bishop’s beloved character will do when he returns.

Coming home from their break, Karl and Susan Kennedy are confronted with how closed off Mackenzie (Georgie Stone) is following Hendrix Greyson’s tragic death, and prompts him to clear things up with his father Grant following recent differences between them, but he has no desire to.

Little do they know, the surprise arrival of a dear friend – Harold Bishop (Ian Smith) – can make all the difference.

Later in the week, Amy Greenwood struggles with her love life and avoids Toadie and Melanie as they celebrate their engagement.

Zara’s heart breaks for her mother, believing that Toadie and Amy have unknown feelings for each other, but as she laments the unfairness of the situation to Harold, she begins to suspect he isn’t that excited about her development either.

Harold refuses to help Zara destroy Toadie and Melanie, but promises to investigate her concerns. He asks Amy’s opinion about Melanie’s dependence, and Amy decides to put her own feelings aside and compliments Mel, but Zara listens and won’t ignore the matter just yet.
