Neighbours confirms knife drama in JJ and Slade plot

Neighbours spoilers follow.

Neighbours teen JJ Varga-Murphy steals a knife next week as he fears for his safety in the show's ongoing gang storyline.

The schoolboy makes a dangerous decision after a violent encounter with new villain Slade Westall.

JJ made an enemy of Slade earlier this week – confronting him and his cronies when they were vandalising the Drinks Divas van on Ramsay Street. He also bravely spoke to the police about what had happened.

Next week, Slade exacts his revenge by turning up at Erinsborough High to threaten JJ. When JJ later heads to the Lassiters complex with his younger brother Dex, menacing Slade appears again and attacks him.

In the aftermath, JJ urges Dex not to tell anyone about Slade's attack. He then decides to arm himself for any future confrontation and steals a sharp chef's knife from Harold's Café.

JJ's reckless actions spiral out of control when his mum Cara pays him a visit at school.

The troubled teen rushes to hide the knife, so he stashes it between the lockers and a wall in the school corridor. When Cara ushers him off to class, JJ leaves the knife behind.

Meanwhile, the Education Department pays a visit to Erinsborough High as part of the proposed merger with Terese Willis' planned retirement village.

There's bad news for Terese and Jane Harris when the Department raises various concerns, including a lack of deviation between the construction site and the school boundary.

Things only get worse when Curtis Perkins finds JJ's stashed knife in the corridor and orders an immediate school lockdown.

Dex assumes that the knife belongs to Slade, but will he discover the worrying truth about JJ's involvement?

Neighbours airs these scenes on Wednesday, February 28.
