A moron and a martyr

April 24th, 2013 by Flathead

Romeo is hastening his own death by quitting chemo. His reason for this suicidal course of action is because he’s trying to hide his condition from his wife and this will be harder to do if he’s suffering the effects of life-saving treatment. He’s worried what effect telling her the truth will have on her, making him losing his own life a small price to pay. He has a history of stupid moves, failing his HSE on purpose, but this takes the biscuit, or tim tam.

Dex is back working as a nurse in the hospital but isn’t allowed to deal with the patients so he’s stuck to mopping floors and the like. He doesn’t seem too enamoured with it all. April thinks their break-up is going very well and reckons it’s only a matter of time before they are re-united. She seemed so sure about it that it made me think fate, or the universe, has other ideas.

Heath went to see a counsellor, twice. He only walked out once, which wasn’t bad given his short fuse. Bianca managed him pretty well in this episode, she seems to spend most of her time dealing with the last Heath explosion, it’s like the grenade on his neck has a three minute fuse that keeps getting reset every time it goes off.

    Loved Heaths description of the counselling process ‘can we go to your office to talk about feelings and stuff’. Also telling Robin he looked like a Boy Scout and had a girly name. He may be angry and simple, but he’s pretty darn funny.

    Heath is fast becoming my favourite character. I can’t wait to see what happens when Darcy moves in, becomes a teenager, and boys start sniffing around. He’s going to lose his mind with the anger. There will be bashings galore.

    At least Romeo is consistent , as thick in dying as he was in living.

    Heath is unreal. Easily my favourite character , a real mix of the best of his Ma & Da.

    Hopefully Heath will start playing the pokies soon. You can really tell Heath (Dan) is making up some of the stuff he says as he goes along. It’s gas watching the other actors smiling when he calls them something like Malibu Ken.
