A mud hut in Mangrove River

August 28th, 2014 by Ailsa

John and Marilyn were having trouble fitting in at the caravan park, so they decided to look at buying a new property. However, purchasing was proving too expensive, so renting was the next option they considered. Hannah and Oscar chipped in with some impromptu real estate advice, but the lovebirds finally decided to give John’s house another go. Much ado about nothing there, lads.

Heath was offering advice too. He told Andy that Hannah clearly doesn’t consider him her relationship equal. Andy took this on board and confronted Hannah.

Phoebe went off half-cocked and decided to sell anything her father ever gave. Luckily, Kyle (in a YOLO tshirt) talked some sense into her.

YOLO, Kyle

YOLO, Kyle

Roo was still complaining of “jet lag”. She mentioned it four or five times. Now, when someone complains of an ailment in Summer Bay, they usually die of it shortly after (see Gina and her headaches). Roo later collapsed due to said mystery ailment. So, what do ye reckon? Cancaaah?

Harley wore another hat.

Bruised egos

August 27th, 2014 by Flathead

Roo returned but wasn’t in too much of a hurry to say why she came back early. Maybe Coleen was getting on her nerves? Roo gave Marilyn a crystal ball which prompted her to say she might start doing readings again. How many businesses is she going to start and then drop? What happened to the tour bus.

Maddie happy to have Roo back. She told Roo things are better than ever, she even asked to move into a van with him, bizarre behaviour.

Kyle wants Phoebe to snap out of her funk so he offered her an amazing gig, a musical residency at Angelo’s. She is so down about her dog Dad, even that opportunity of a lifetime failed to cheer her up. Maybe she’s afraid she’s part canine? To clear the air she’s going to sell everything her Dad ever gave her. Garage sale time.

Casey is nursing a bruised jaw and ego. Chris punched him and then Denny wouldn’t answer his call. Kyle went after Casey to stop him going after Chris, but it’s Denny he’s looking for. He went to the farm for answers but all he got was a bag of frozen peas to put on his bruise, but they didn’t last, she asked for them back when she kicked him out. Kyle told him to cool it and give her space. In the meantime she called over to Chris’s where he was laying low, for fear of Braxton retaliation. She asked him to give it another go but he wasn’t interested. So now that she’s free and single, herself and Casey are going to give it a go, taking things slowly, they’ll make a nice couple.

Romances rejigged

August 26th, 2014 by Ailsa

It’s all about the romances down Summer Bay way, look at all the recent changes:

  • Chris and Denny broke up
  • Casey and Denny are about to get together
  • Maddie and Josh are surely on the rocks
  • Evelyn will be there to pick up the pieces
  • Nate and Sophie won’t be together too long
  • Hannah might like a go of the doc, or Leah
  • Marilyn and John are trialling Alf’s gaff (and leaving John’s house empty, for some mad reason)

Casey got a punch to the face, courtesy of Chris – that’s one for the Braxton punch count. Denny is too much of a wet blanket for Chris anyhow.

BASH!

BASH!

Roo is back! It took her a while to get her massive dresses through customs, but she’s made it back to the bay safely. Oh my gawdfather!

John likes weak tea, the total weirdo.

King of the idiots

August 21st, 2014 by Flathead

We had a strange experience watching todays episode on the RTE player. After a few minutes the picture went and we were left listening to it. It was like listening to the Archers on BBC radio 4.

Matt doesn’t want to be school captain with Sasha, he feels their relationship would suffer. Sash doesn’t agree and crowned him King of the idiots. Will he be more Solomon or Henry VIII? Leah tried to talk Matt into doing it with Sasha, he reckons she’s just being nosy, but she managed to talk him around. Matt and Sasha are going to become joint captains.

Darcy fancies Jett but he’s not interested which upset her, he friend zoned but she was hoping for more, the age gap was too severe according to him. Heath tried to get to the bottom of it with Jett but just ended up embarrassing Darcy.

Heath is struggling with raising Harley on his own. He almost starved to death with all of the baby chores and had to go to the Diner and order two burgers. Hungry Heath. He then left the baby with John and Marilyn while he headed off. They had a great time minding the baby, I thought Marilyn was going to suggest they have a child of their own.

Dr. Accent wants to get back together with Sophie, Leah doesn’t approve. Maybe there could be a future love interest between them?

Do babies need hats in Austrailia? Looked pretty hot there today.

I just want to get on with my punishment

August 19th, 2014 by Ailsa

Oscar is the biggest martyr yet. He is feeling very guilty about nearly killing Tamara, and is only dying for someone to give him a bashing or similar as punishment. He got 100 hours of parks and rec. That won’t help his panic attacks. Neither will getting advice from Andy Barrett.

Andy was also doling out love advice to Casey. Young Braxton told Denny to keep her distance, then was all confused when she tried to cancel her gym membership, then went to meet her on the beach for a pash. Wait till Chris gets wind of this.

Marilyn is gearing up for the wedding of the century, and John couldn’t care less. Roo is coming home for help with the preparations, though. I think she should bring Colleen on a holiday from Vegas.

Back to Oscar – he’s another creative prodigy. How come all the kids at Summer Bay High are deadly at art?

Phoebe was going to call the cops on her dad, but the Braxton bros convinced her otherwise. She just phoned him up and gave out to him instead.

Family meeting

August 18th, 2014 by Flathead

Brax called a family meeting and then proceeded to tell the gang that there was no point to the meeting, he just wanted to see them all and get a progress report. It wasn’t quite what they were all expecting, these things normally involve assassination attempts or somebody being sent to jail. Brax is worried about the boys and wants to have more input from them, some involvement in their lives. He even volunteered to babysit Harley. They had a massive barbie in the garden, looked like a great time, complete with crap music and burnt snags. Brax seemed disappointed that there’s no drama with his bros. Be careful what you wish for Darryl.

Phoebe is still worried about the shooting as she doesn’t know that her Dad was behind it. Brax told Kyle to fess up and tell her the truth which he had to do eventually, she was suitably gob smacked when she found out her Dad is a dog.

Denny is having second thoughts about Chris. He pales in comparison to Casey in her eyes. Hannah asked her whats going on and she told her that she’s going off him, she finds him a bit annoying now. Chris tried to call over to Denny’s but she was having a girl’s night.

Spencer confronted Evelyn about her having the hots for Josh but she wasn’t impressed. Maddie copped on too and told Josh so it won’t be long before Evelyn finds out that everyone else knows. Cue Josh calling over and telling her he knows but she denied it and said it was all in Spencer’s head.

Ok, close your textbooks.

August 15th, 2014 by Ailsa

Sophie is a renegade teacher; she had her art class ignore the prescribed texts, and instead talked about art theory. I’m sure the kids think she is very cool now.

Eh, what age is yer man on the right? He looks like he should have a wife, a job, and two kids.

Evie and Josh swapped self-portrait assignments and did lovely pictures of one another. Hannah and Spencer are wise to them. It’ll be no time before they are a couple. Maddie won’t be impressed, she’ll do yet another megasulk.

Brax is annoyed that he has no problems to solve. OIIIIIIIII!

Friendzone

August 14th, 2014 by Flathead

John had an elaborate proposal plan for Marilyn, he gave her a metal detector and let her find it in the front garden. It went down a treat, I’d say they’ll be happy now.

Denny wasn’t too happy with Casey telling her about his feelings. She thought they were mates but he wanted more. They’re going to try to keep things on a friendship basis or so they say. How long will they stay in the friendzone before Chris gets his p45? About 2 episodes I reckon.

Speaking of the friendzone, Evelyn and Spencer had been concentrating on their exams so had no time for romance. Once they finished them, Spence wanted to get back in the groove but Evelyn was having none of it. She has her eye on some other buchaill, Josh perhaps?

Himself and Maddie seem to be drifting apart because she is class at exams and studying but he finds it tough. When she finished her exam paper she exclaimed “I’m finished” to the class and skipped out of the room. I would have dumped her for that if I were him.

“We’re a strong couple”

August 13th, 2014 by Ailsa

So said Bianca as she discussed the possibility of moving to a new school. Strong is right, they’ve survived both of them cheating, a break-up, a possible divorce and an amazingly quick turn-around to becoming devoted husband and wife again. Anyway, she is off to the new job and Heath is staying in the Bay. She’ll be back at weekends. I doubt this’ll last.

Nate told Sophie the principal’s office tryst won’t be happening again. It turns out she is a prescription drug addict, and Nate was her dealer! Good doctoring there.

Casey still fancies Denny, ooh he is doing it tough. Chris even thanked him for giving them space. Brax had a good laugh slagging Casey about it. Check out his advice-giving here.

So the youngest Braxton/Barrett summoned Denny to the gym after hours and told her how he really feels. She made this face.

WHAT????

WHAT????

Matt is sleeping in the school Wait till Sasha gets wind of this.

P.S. This was the holding image on the RTE player today. Confused the hell outta me.

Tamara go home

Tamara go home

Bye bye Braxton

August 12th, 2014 by Flathead

Why aren’t Heath and Andy better mates? They’re both dum and have dodgy pasts, and are currently trying to reform themselves for their partners.

Oscar is cured after a talk with Andy, he told him to get over it and he has. Hannah tricked Andy into giving Oscar a pep talk, which he did but he wasn’t happy with the position she put him in so he broke it off with her. What is he at?

Bianca and Heath are about to leave town due to her transfer, only one problem, Heath doesn’t know about it yet. She told him she was going to turn it down but he told her not to, that’s them done.

Nate isn’t getting on with his wife Sophie. It turns out that they met when he saved her from a car accident, is that ethical practice for a doctor? They had a showdown in her school office which rapidly turned into a steamy sex session. Maybe she can’t resist his accent?
