The climax of Sarah's storyline served as a cliffhanger ahead of the serial's break for the 2004 Summer Olympics. Sarah seeks revenge on the residents of Summer Bay for causing the death of her boyfriend Felix Walters (Josh Lawson), when in fact she is responsible, after injecting him with crystal Meth and an armed siege takes place at a safehouse. Nicole Brady of The Age commented on the police's failings to keep order. "Alert but not alarmed at news of the madwoman's imminent arrival, the local constabulary decides the best way to guarantee the safety of the town's spunky young residents is to gather them all in a single safe house then leave them in the care of a single officer. D'oh! Problems arise for the gang when Detective Peter Baker (Nicholas Bishop) leaves them alone and unprotected while he heads out on reconnaissance with the other blockheads in blue, who seem similarly intent on botching the protection job."[20]

Felix asks Sarah to pose a policewoman and tell Dani Sutherland (Tammin Sursok) that her boyfriend Scott Hunter (Kip Gamblin) has died while at sea. Scott resurfaces and it becomes clear that this is a hoax. When Felix is attacked by an unknown assailant, Dani, Scott and Kane Phillips (Sam Atwell) look for evidence to clear their names.

In spite of the evidence amassed, Peter warns Dani, Scott and Kane to let the police handle it. When Peter visits Sarah, All the incriminating evidence seemingly disappears. Felix dies in hospital and Sarah wants revenge. She begins playing mind games, first by making it seem like Kane is cheating on his wife, Kirsty (Christie Hayes). She then disguises herself as a stripper for Noah Lawson's (Beau Brady) bucks party and tells Kane, who is in attendance he can get to him, Scott or Dani at any time. Sarah plants powder in the air conditioning the day before Noah's wedding to Hayley Smith (Bec Cartwright) but Peter find the powder. She is then questioned but released.

Sarah then plants acid on Dani's soap causing her to burn her hands and steals Tasha Andrews' (Isabel Lucas) handgun. She then arrives at the Surf Club, where Jesse McGregor (Ben Unwin) is locking up the gym. When Tasha, Kane and Robbie Hunter (Jason Smith) arrive, Sarah shoots Jesse in the head and flees. She is arrested and sent to a psychiatric hospital. Peter arranges for Sarah's victims to confront her and she apologises and admits to killing Felix by injecting him with Crystal Meth. Several weeks later she escapes the hospital and returns to the Bay. News of her escape filters to town and everyone uses Leah Patterson's (Ada Nicodemou) home as a safe house. Sarah retrieves the gun and begins her quest to find Scott and Dani who are planning to leave for Paris, she confronts them and ties Dani up and demands Scott take her to Leah's and he drives here there at gunpoint. Once at the house, she holds them hostage and demands that Felix's killer come forward. Flynn Saunders (Joel McIlroy) tries to reason with Sarah after she knocks Peter unconscious with the gun, sending him into a fit, but she refuses to let him tend to Peter. She then begins a 20-minute countdown. Several people try to wrestle Sarah to the ground for the gun and several shots are fired and she makes a run for it. Noah follows her and she comes face to face with Dani who arrives with her father, Rhys (Michael Beckley). Sarah turns and shoots Noah, killing him. She then turns the gun on herself.

Several months after Sarah's death, Eve Jacobsen (Emily Perry), Sarah's nurse and former lover arrives to avenge Sarah's death and plan a similar campaign against the Bay. She murders Zoe McCallister and assumes her identity and begins playing mind games with Peter and Sally Fletcher (Kate Ritchie). Peter starts to believe Sarah is still alive at one point. Eve's schemes come to an end when she arranges a large explosion at the wedding of Jack Holden (Paul O'Brien) and Martha MacKenzie (Jodi Gordon) and is killed in the process.
