After Wayne splits from Amanda, he hires Liz Smith from
an escort agency to pretend to be his girlfriend so that
Gordon will think he's happy and won't worry about him.
Unfortunately, Liz finds herself falling in love with
Gordon after he turns out to be a real gentleman who treats
her with respect. She eventually admits the truth to Gordon,
but he tells her that he can't reciprocate her feelings,
so she has to disappear from the lives of the Hamiltons.
A few weeks later, she comes into their lives again when
she starts being terrorised by a former client. Gordon
allows her to move into Dural again, but Barbara makes
clear her dislike of the girl. Wayne persuades Liz to
play up to Gordon so that he'll fall in love with her
and leave Barbara, a plan Liz is slightly concerned about
but agrees to go along with. However, Barbara blackmails
her into moving out, and Liz decides to book into a motel.
When she goes to get some things from her flat, though,
she's kidnapped by the man who was terrorising her and
is held in a house in the country for several days. She
eventually manages to escape, and she returns to Dural,
where she's surprised and delighted when Gordon tells
her that he loves her. However, he also tells her that
he still loves Barbara, and that they therefore have to
make a clean break, as he doesn't want to lose his wife.
Liz sadly has to leave again.
A few months later, Liz waltzes back into the Hamiltons'
lives with a new man, Dan Weller, a businessman who Liz
thinks should talk to Gordon. Sadly, her eyes are soon
opened to the fact that Dan isn't the man she thinks he
is: he flirts with Caroline Morrell right in front of
Liz, and she has to concede that she's made the wrong
choice again. When Karen Hamilton lays into Gordon in
an unprovoked rant against the Hamilton family, Liz sees
red and confronts Karen furiously at the end of the driveway
at Dural. She ends up slapping Karen, and Karen topples
over the bridge and into the water. Liz drives off, but
when she learns a couple of days later that Karen is dead
through drowning, she realises she must be responsible,
and she turns herself over to the police.
