Terese Willis’ life will be in peril in the season finale of Neighbours in 2021, according to the cliffhanger.
Terese (Rebekah Elmaloglou) has been struggling for months after her breakup with Paul Robinson (Stefan Dennis), and has resorted to drink once more. Terese and Harlow Robinson (Jemma Donovan) clash on the rooftop of Lassiters after a sequence of incidents.
Terese finds herself hanging to the brink of the cliff and in serious need of assistance as she overbalances.

Terese is inebriated on the roof. Terese tosses the report off the roof when Harlow argues that Glen is up to no good and attempts to show her the report, but she loses her balance in the process and ends up struggling to cling on to the edge of the building to escape a big fall…
