Phoebe’s Dad returned full of apologies for Kyle and Brax. Can a leopard change his spots? I doubt it.
Casey is doing it tough because Tamara is gone, Kyle didn’t seem to notice her departure. Denny wanted to help cheer him up but Chris is still a bit insecure about his girlfriend’s friendship with Casey, in the long run I think he might be right.
Andy is causing hassle left right and centre. He tried to start a row with Brax on the beach and then in Angelo’s. Why is he so aggro?
John wants Marilyn to help him with Jett so she gave him a tough punishment. He’s annoyed with her now but the kid needs to learn, he can’t keep hooning around like a little larrikin.
Brax and Ricky survived an assassination attempt when somebody shot in the window of their gaff. Who’s behind it? Andy is too thick to use a firearm so maybe it was somebody hired by Phoebe’s father?
They once called her Tedious, but today Tamara decided to make a surprising move and leave the Bay. Her accident and impending operation made her miss the mother she hasn’t mentioned once in the past year and a half. See our first mention of Tamara here.
Casey’s amazing tshirt – you can say that again, Case
Sasha’s exposé of Oscar’s hit-and-run caused a rift between Denny and Chris. Apparently Sasha is like a younger sister to Chris. Anyway, Chris stood up for himself and Denny thought that was deadly.
Oscar turned himself in to the YCPD. Will he go to juvie? Is he just trying to avoid doing the HSC? Only time will tell.
Heath is struggling with the bub. Bianca feels sorry for him. REUNION!
Tamara’s brain is about to explode, we’ve seen that storyline before.
Oscar is still trying to fess up about the accident but Evelyn wants him to cease and desist, his conscience won’t let him. He spilled his guts to Sasha and she wants to write his story in her newspaper article.
Phoebe’s missing her father so she rang him and appologised, why did she bother? Now that herself and Ricky are full-time Braxton babes will they have to get the Blood and Sand tattoos?
Phoebe’s da tried to cross the Braxtons, and paid the price big-style. He called the cops to check out the Boyz, but they found nothing and Pheebs was mega-peeved. She said good luck, Da, and don’t let the door hit you on the arse on the way out.
John and Marilyn are obsessed with Jett. He’s off at the Gaeltacht or something.
Maddie did a great workout at Alf’s command.
Does Ricky have a job? Professional troubleshooter?
The battle for Denny’s affections is being won by Casey and Chris isn’t impressed. He tried to win her back with a cake but she had none of it. Then he found her eating a sambo on the beach and attempted to dazzle her with his sandwich knowledge. Chris noticed that she was distracted by a topless Casey surfing so he tried to compete and show his own skills on the waves. Denny was less than impressed with his repeated wipe-outs, Kelly Slater he is not.
Bianca has moved out of Irene’s house after their row and is going to move in with Leah for now. What if she has a row with Leah? She’ll end up living in the caravan park. Heath snubbed her on the beach as he thinks the breakup will be easier if they keep their distance.
Alf is having problems with parenting Maddy, she hasn’t handed in her latest assignment. She stayed in Josh’s van without Alf’s knowledge and he went mental when he found out. He grounded her until she has it completed, this is very similar to when she was rowing with Roo, she’s a handful alright. Is Roo coming back to resume looking after Maddy or is Alf going to be stuck with her forever?
Bianca and Heath are continuing their ridiculous break-up, and Bianca is angry with Irene for being sound to Heath. Cue the immortal line, “You’re like a daughter to me, love”. Irene has had so many faux-children at this stage, she’s like Captain Von Trapp.
Oscar confessed to the cops about the hit and run, but they don’t believe him! Gas. So Zac is still in the firing line. He’s taking a break from school while the drama plays out.
Tamara can still see, for the minute. She’s had a rough trot since she arrived in the Bay. I’d say she’s wishing her amnesia would come back.
Matt is being a martyr, living in a refuge and refusing to go back to school. Leah has her eye on him now though, so he’ll be grand altogether.
Phoebe’s dad is a big city lawyer and he decided to take a trip to the Bay to check up on his daughter. He wants to see how she’s getting on with her fella, given that he’s supporting her financially. He is very curious about Kyle and seemed none too impressed when he learned that he’s a Braxton. He is getting a detective to investigate Kyle, I’d say he’ll find some dirt there.
Bianca was upset to find Heath returned bringing Harley, unexpectedly. She is trying to adapt to their changing circumstances. He accused her of being selfish and not thinking about him and the baby. She still thinks he needs to decide between Harley and her. Leah reckons they’ll find a way through their difficulties as they love each other. They had a showdown on street and she told him it’s over, she can’t get over Harley. Bianca went crying to Irene and Heath was left holding the baby.
John is missing Jett and Marilyn is having a hard time cheering him up. She suggested a tarot reading or tea leaves to see what’s going on for him, they settled on a palm reading and they had a discussion about John’s wedding ring. He said he’s not ready to take it off yet and Marilyn is fine with that.
Jett told Denny “the Braxtons always have stuff going on”, he’s not wrong there. Casey confronted Cheryl about being a Barrett but he wasn’t too happy with her excuses so he told her to get stuffed, they’re done. He left to spend some time alone but Brax found him and convinced him to come back for more Cheryl time.
Chris is still trying to avoid Denny since she dumped him. He’s even calling in sick to the Diner. Irene copped on and sent Denny around to find him watching football instead of being properly sick. She’s sick of him being a dope and dodging her. Casey and her had a chat and bonded in the Diner, she’d be better off with Casey than Chris anyway.
Chris told Spencer that he regretted pushing her away and was going to try getting her back, even if it meant he’d have to tell everyone he’d been a total idiot. He just wanted their relationship to slow down, not stop.
Jett is annoyed that his boat is going to be expensive to fix up. John has given him a job in the surf club selling gelato but he’ll have to sell a lot to be able to afford getting his boat fixed. Maybe he should try to get a second job, like helping with Marilyn and John’s tour bus business. Whatever happened to that? They haven’t mentioned it in months.
The World Cup may not be over, but normality has been slightly restored with the return of our Summer Bay buddies. Here’s a refresher:
Casey’s still sulking about being half Braxton, half Barrett. He also received a Union Jack hat in the post from yer wan in England. He’ll be taking another trip across the water shortly, so. On Brax’s advice, he’s organized a pow-wow with Big Mammy Braxton, wherein he plans to confront her about her daddy-concealing ways.
Tamara remembered that it was Zac’s car that hit her. Zac gave himself up to the poh-lice, and Oscar is wracked with guilt over his favourite uncle taking the blame for his own heinous crime. Evelyn is very calm about it all. Sociopath! Also, Hannah got Andy to bash the dints out of the car, making everything even more suspicious.
