Melody is off-key; HOME AND AWAY WEEKDAYS, FIVE, 6pm.
To recap, she's a brainy schoolgirl with a religious bent who took a shine to fellow churchgoer Geoff.
Their attempts to get it together came a cropper thanks to Melody's rottweiler of a mum, Christine, who took against her daughter's beau.
The subsequent furore saw Mel end up at a party thrown by bitter rival Nicole, where she was the subject of a sexual attack by Axel. Mel was moved to a different school and that was the end of that.
At least, until Aden was sent to the clinic. We found Melody there, and she had really lost the plot, but when her mum dragged her back home, things got much, much worse. The unhappy teen confessed to Geoff that she was deliberately starving herself to gain some measure of control in her life.
Things reach a head when Melody shouts at her mum. The older woman thinks her daughter is possessed...
TROUBLED... Melody is comforted at the clinic
