While engaging in some classic leaning, Brax told Casey about himself and Ricky trying for a baby. Casey managed to persuade him to help Andy, he needs the support that the Braxton boys gave each other if he’s to turn his life around. Brax held out a hand of friendship to Andy but got it thrown back in his face. Andy got a job offer from Cody and lads who were threatening him last week, they were impressed with his drug selling abilities.
Jett was worried that he might get displaced now that John’s real child has arrived in town. John reassured him that this wasn’t a problem but as they were arguing in the garden they ended up soaking Marilyn with a garden hose, such laughs.
Oscar is still on his crazy fitness buzz. After his community service he got dropped off in the bush so he could run home. This wasn’t the best plan as he was on his own on a country path with the sun beating down. He got heat stroke and passed out. Will Zac and Hannah be able to find him in time?
In the space of one episode, Sasha went from failing her HSC to, um, not failing it. Zac was just acting the tough teacher for a while. Matt owned up to his amazing poetry skills, and all was well.
Oscar loves that oul’ gym. He can’t get enough. Or, maybe he can; 8 chest extensions had him staggering around the place like a drunk. He got pretty angry when Spencer and Maddie told him to ease off, look!
DJ phoebe is laying down some phat beats in Angelo’s, much to Kyle’s annoyance as she’s disturbed the lunchtime rush. Kyle was trying to give Ricky a handy day in work as he thought she might be pregnant. Phoebe noticed his completely obvious behaviour and he let it slip, the bleedin’ dope. He swore her to secrecy but that didn’t last.
Ricky was annoyed because herself and Brax have been trying for a baby for about a week and she’s not pregnant yet. She asked Nate but he told her not to worry, it’ll happen. When Ricky found out that Kyle and Phoebe knew they were trying she went mad. Brax is dead when she finds him.
Nate invited all his mates around for dinner without telling Sophie. They had dinner but Sophie lost the plot with him after they left. He’s scared that they’re going down the same path they did before and will repeat old mistakes.
Sasha owned up to Sophie about her poem. She got away with it, kind of. I don’t know why she didn’t say Matt was behind it. Sophie asked Zac to help her come up with a suitable punishment for Sasha.
Ah Sophie. You are screwed now. Don’t you know that pride comes before a fall, especially in Summer Bay? From here, there’s nowhere to go but down. Sure, as soon as you left the room, Dr. MegaMuscles was looking worried.
The principal and the doctor have a nice new gaff. Very mod-ren altogether.
Andy came back and the dealer dudes released Evie and Josh. Somehow, Andy paid off the lads AND Brax. That’ll come back to bite him. Hannah inexplicably still fancies him, even though he is a megadose, and got her niece kidnapped.
John and Marilyn told Jett about Shandi, then there was an estranged daughter, adopted son meet-up. That was grand. I’m waiting for the drama, lads.
RTE player staff got a bit confused with Friday’s episode. This sounds like a plot from ten years ago.
Cody and his toughs turned up to get some info on Andy’s whereabouts. First they put the hurt on Casey at the gym but all that succeeded in doing was dragging Brax away from the house to rescue his bro. Little did he know that this was what they wanted all along. As soon as he left Braxton Towers for the gym, they went over to capture Josh and Evelyn, who they took to the farm for kidnap and interrogation. Kyle is going to be annoyed when he finds out, some kidnapping in the Bay that he wasn’t involved in. Where was Kyle anyway? The lads forced Josh to leave a message for Andy, telling him to come and rescue them. Will the selfish mongrel turn up? What if Oscar and Hannah show up first?
John got a surprise when Shandi turned up in the diner. They had a chat on the beach and seemed to have straightened things out a bit. Everything was going fine until he told her about Jett; she lost the plot when she heard he had a foster son. Things will be a bit bumpy for a while but she’ll be grand once she acclimatises to the Bayside way of life.
Brax just cannot help himself. If there is a problem to be fixed, he can’t ignore it for long. He gave Andy money from Angelo’s, as a loan, to pay off the dealers. Andy disappeared and now there are angry dealers and an angry Kyle to put up with. The newest Braxton is not impressed that his managerial status was undermined.
We haven’t actually seen the dealers. It would be great if they were really posh, or old women, or something unexpected like that. Or if Morag was their ringleader, or Colleen. Awesome.
Ricky was winning in the mad fashion stakes today. Behold:
Marilyn finally confessed that she’s invited Shandi to the wedding. John didn’t mind too much, but now he’ll have to tell Jett he has a daughter. Eh, surely that came up in the adoption process, no?
Casey and Josh are looking for Andy, he’s gone missing and isn’t answering their calls. It turns out the dealers kidnapped him and gave him a good bashing. They dumped him on the side of the road where Hannah found him. When he was found he had a hoodie on but when he arrived into the hospital he was topless. Did Hannah take his clothes off en route? Maybe Nate prescribed a prolonged spell of toplessness for him.
Andy told Casey to get Josh out of town as the lads who bashed him are coming back for him and his bro. Even Hannah isn’t safe. Now that he’s in his hour of need will Brax have a change or heart and save him at the last minute?
Maddy started her new job in the gym but it’s not going quite as she planned. She has loads of new ideas for programs and classes but Casey isn’t interested as she isn’t a qualified instructor. Instead of all that he has cleaning the showers and the toilets. So glamourous, worth leaving school for.
John wanted to invite Xavier to the wedding, one small problem, he hasn’t told him that himself and Marilyn are engaged. He rang him with the good news but Xavi can’t make the wedding anyway, which is a pity. Marilyn invited Shandi, Josh’s daughter but she didn’t tell John, he’ll get a surprise when she shows up. Is it possible for John and Marilyn to go through an episode without some sort of miscommunication where one of them gets the wrong end of the stick?
Leah and Sophie went to lunch in Angelo’s, to have a very civilised face-off. A few home truths were declared, and a few glasses of wine drunk. Sophie suggested Leah should get back on the dating scene. Chris, who had been eavesdropping for some reason, told the two ladies they were rides. Nate came to collect Sophie (who is still untrustworthy in my book), and Leah stayed on, drinking and giving Zac the mickey eye. Drunk Leah is the best.
Chris and Denny went for dinner, strictly on a just-friends basis, but he ruined it all by trying to kiss her at the end of the night. THE DOPE.
