Banger come back

Saturday, February 1st, 2014

Where is Harvey? Winston has turned up safe and sound. Roo got word that the search for Husband Harvey had been called off, which rendered her more even shrill and bad-tempered. She thinks he is still out there, but the solemn faces on Alf, Marilyn and John suggest they think otherwise.

If Banger has truly banged his last, it’s a bit of a poor exit for the man. He deserves better than a Beth-style death. We’d put so much effort into liking him, that this news is coming as a bit of a blow. Such is the Summer Bay Curse; no adult relationship lasts too long.

Rhys Sutherland

Given that we’ve no new episodes to discuss this week, I thought it was time to delve into the archives again and examine another character from the Bay’s glorious history.

If Rhys had an anger meter it would go up to 11, and rarely drop below 10. He moved to the bay with his wife Shelly and his family many years ago. They took over the caravan park. Rhys looked a bit like a fish and was a pretty wooden character. I could never figure out why Shelly went out with him.

Rhys and Shelly had 3 daughters: the “twins” Kirsty & Jade and Dani. Dani was a bit of a moany hole. She went out with Will Smyth until she realised that he wasn’t the Hollywood star of Independence Day and Men in Black. She then went out with Josh West who was a tool. Then she was raped by Kane Phillips. Back in those days, they used to say “attack” rather than “rape”. Kirsty found this irresistible and eloped with her sister’s rapist.  All of this drove Rhys off the edge and he had a rage stroke.

Shelly left him to nobody’s great surprise. But he soon ended up with Beth Hunter, to everyone’s surprise. She was a living saint and was a good influence on the raging Rhys. She told him to keep his temper in check or he’d be kicked to the curb. Alas her wholesome ways weren’t enough for dumb ass Rhys and he left Beth once home wrecker Shelly appeared back on the scene. I don’t think too many tears were shed in the bay the day he left. Thankfully, he’s never come back.

Grieving a la Summer Bay

Well.  I’d say Tony would have forgotten all about Beth’s death-anniversary were it not for Matilda.  It must be hard for him to keep track though; since his wife’s deathly hand was seen dangling out of a car window, Tony’s hopped up on around three or four of Summer Bay’s finest.  I’d say he would have had a go of Martha had she not been kind-of-family.  Not to mention the fact that he is now engaged, a mere twelve months later.

Leah is busy coping with her own little tragedy.  However, is it my imagination or does she have more pep in her step since Dreary Dan departed?
