She is having trouble after a terrible car accident.
On Home and Away, a forthcoming alcohol-related storyline centres on Felicity Newman, whose drinking raises suspicions.
Felicity, who married Tane Parata last year, was involved in a horrific car accident on the day of the wedding, as viewers in Australia are already aware. The brakes on the vehicle she and Eden were travelling in had been compromised by a Death Adders bikie gang member.
Tane is eager to resume the ceremony several weeks after that horrible incident. However, Felicity has taken up drinking and is about to intensify her addiction in fresh scenes that will air in Australia soon.
Felicity will plan a party where her drinking will spiral out of control in a new plot line.
The emotional trauma hits Flick after the dust has settled after the crash, according to Jacqui Purvis, who discussed the plot with NowToLove.com.au.
She feels responsible for the accident and uses alcohol to dull her guilt and grief.
Tane has sensed that Felicity is reluctant to resume planning for their wedding, even though he doesn’t seem to have noticed her drinking.
Felicity, after all, had reservations about getting married in scenes that were broadcast in Australia last November.
Will Tane notice that Felicity isn’t acting right and encourage her to get help?
