In grand oul Summer Bay tradition, Elijah tells Leah he’s leaving, on his leaving day. Like so many before him, (Geoff, Annie, and so on) the Rev is only dying to get out of town. He’s going to Another Parish. He had a hooley on the beach before he left, and cleared up any stray plotlines while he was at it. See ya later, Rev.
Leah told Brax a barefaced lie when she said she wasn’t interested in him. The truth will come out in the wash.
Liam went MENTILE at Eddie and smashed his guitar. All because Eddie nicked Liam’s lyrics. Fair enough, I thought. The bauld Eddie is denying all culpability, however. What’s that about? What is he playing at? Is he someone’s long-lost relative or something?
April caught Casey and Henri having a secret after-hours pash in Angelo’s. Knowing her capacity for keeping secrets, the whole Bay will know before long.
Sasha the Bashed Basha is going on trial “tomorrow”. This will be good. I hope Morag features heavily.
Oh my goodness, would Rachel and Tony ever EFF OFF?Â This saga has been going on for yonkers in Home and Away terms.Â Now Rachel has slyly invited Lucas home in the hopes that he’d convince Tony that in America, the streets are paved with gold.Â Tony rightly thought that Rachel was being a domineering wagon.Â Meanwhile the only thing that the audience cares about is – is Lucas going to be played by the same actor as previously?
Poor Romeo was scared to tell Indy he is a virgin.Â I personally can’t believe he never took it to the next level with Annie – NOT.
Dexter stood in for his da on a date with Marilyn.Â She wasn’t too impressed but then he was being a weirdo stalker.
Penn told Nicole a load of horse manure about his childhood and now they are friends again.Â We didn’t get to hear what his big secret was; no doubt it will be revealed in a shocking manner shortly.
So, Romeo and Indigo are an item. Romeo did a load of messing in that episode; I think he’s scared to take things to “the next level”. Did he ever reach that level with Annie? Surely not.
If you lived in Summer Bay, who would you ask for romantic advice? That’s right, Alf and Miles. Two bachelors who live together. Anyway Alf reassured Romeo that it’s ok to be romantic with your best friend. He even admitted Ailsa was his. Awwww. Even if she was a bit of a drip.
Rachel is trying to scare Tony into going to Boston; she left her flight confirmation lying about the house. Sly one Doc.
I flippin’ knew Ruby was going to ruin the play. The little eejit. Luckily Sir Liam of Murphy stepped in and saved the day. Ruby did alright considering originally she proclaimed “I can’t sing”. Might there be a singing career in the pipeline?
Miles was extra mad in that episode. He wanted to keep a seat at the play for Rabbit (bet she didn’t pay though, it’s one of the perks of being imaginary), then he suddenly went home and banished her from the house. Now he wants her to come back. Ahhhhh.
Leah knows about the Milco madness now anyway. She tried to get it out of Elijah by repeatedly saying his name, but Miles charged in and gave the game away himself. Cue frowny face from Leah until this is sorted out.
Annie left. Hurrah hurrah. “When are you leaving”, said Romeo. “Tomorrow morning”, said Annie. Those Campbells don’t wait around. Sure Geoff went off to “Africa” within a day of making his decision to leave. Anyway Romeo is pretty cut up about it, but Annie doesn’t seem to care. I bet she’s really into J-pop and that’s why she’s off. She did get Romeo to tell her his real name though. What do you think it is?
Annie and Romeo are now officially in love.Â The oul light-a-few-candles-and-set-up-a-discoball trick worked.Â They’re love’s young dream.
Ruby has a new love interest herself. Mega-rocker Liam Murphy is giving her singing lessons, and he’s fairly hands-on.Â Of course he doesn’t know what he’s getting himself into, but he mightn’t mind too much.Â We haven’t seen an illicit love affair in ages (Leah and Elijah doesn’t count).
Martha has recently remembered that Hugo is “dead” and her family are concerned for her state of mind.Â Alf told Angelo he wanted to tell all, but Serge Risotto convined him to keep schtum.Â Then the crafty copper went round to Martha’s with a pizza and the world’s strongest wine – the pair of them were locked after half a bottle.Â Oops.Â Meanwhile, Hugo hasn’t checked in with witness protection and is living in a dungeon somewhere with only Martha’s photo for company.Â No good can come of this.
Ah here.Â H&A is way too sad these days.Â First was the whole Miles/Rabbit scenario, and now today Leah and VJ visited Vinnie’s grave to say goodbye.Â That’s enough sadness now, I thought.
Elijah didn’t think so, though.Â He threw in a tragic story about his dad dying on a fishing trip.Â I’m not able for this.
Aden’s stupid brother had a flashback and now thinks he killed their da.Â It looks to me like the dad was drink-driving and had a crash.Â If only they hadn’t buried him, they’d be ok with the cops.
Romeo set up a romantic date with Annie in the gym.Â Possibly inspired by Ruby’s seduction of Geoff using fairy lights, he lit a load of candles.Â The Campbells are suckers for small light sources.
Romeo can be pretty persuasive, especially when it’s young Annie Campbell that he’s persuading. Â He’s convinced her that it would be great craic to break into the School hall, so they could practice their lines. Â Annie was worried that they might get caught but eventually succumbed to Romeos’s powers of persuasion. Â No doubt they will get caught and get in deep trouble. Â What would Pop Campbell say if he could see her now? Â He’d probably say “I didn’t raise you to trespass on school property, no get out of that school and come back work on the farm as my slave labour.” Â He must be spinning in his grave.
Oh, Colleen is on rare oul’ form these days; in that episode she was giving out yards about the “graffiti bandits” aka Mad Miles terrorising the caravan park, and ensuring she is living in a “psychedelic nightmare”. Â I think they’ve assigned Robert Robertson’s scriptwriter to her.
Xavier told Ruby about the cash he’s sitting on. Â How did he keep it for this long? Â He’s lucky Mink didn’t run off with it, or Romeo didn’t tell Annie. Â Anyway, now that Ruby knows, it’s only a matter of time before Charlie aka the cops find out. Â He should just buy a flash car and be done with it.
Tony, in a stupid move, has started to teach Xavier boxing. Â Gina has already expressed extreme disgust for the sport. Â Duh, Tony. Â Don’t cross the headmistress. Â Everyone knows that.
