Eff you, doc

Monday, September 1st, 2014

Doctors are the most abused characters in Summer Bay. Any time someone’s in hospital, their relatives show up and slag off their medic’s professional skills until such time as the injured party miraculously recovers. Alf had a go at Dr. Accent today for being late for work. He was on call, but his phone was mysteriously on silent mode, something the good doc swore he never does. He’s blaming the ex-wife and no wonder, with her erstwhile unreliable druggy ways.

Roo is still unconscious, the victim of an as-yet-unnamed virus. Maddie is taking it hard, so Josh left her in the hospital to go off house riding with Evie. Unusually, this physical exertion didn’t end up with a topless youth in a hospital bed, but rather with an illicit smooch. What will Maddie say? Probably not too much, as she is leaning on Spencer for support and he is currently girlfriend-free. Handy.

And the girlfriend worried sick in hospital…

Ricky wants a baby, and Brax doesn’t. He’s afraid the child will turn out to be a DOG like Danny, and Darryl himself apparently. Like all Brax decisions, this one is rooted in martyrdom.

Doing it tough

Oi…we’re brothers

Poor oul’ Casey is doing it tough. He’s so cut up about not being a son of The Dog, that he literally cut himself up. He got the tattoo sliced right off his back. And him topless 50% of the time! Brax found him in a shivering heap and called Dr. Nate to the gym to tend to Braxton/Barrett Jr. For some mad reason, Casey wouldn’t go to hospital, so the doc fixed him up there and then. Brax was fierce ungrateful.

On a positive note, Case is still in touch with the Brit chick, so I’d say he’ll be heading that way shortly, ifthis is anything to go by (spoilers galore).

Oscar hasn’t owned up that he mowed Tamara down. Zac thinks he himself did it, and Tamara can’t remember at all. This is her second time with memory loss, she’s very fragile.

Chris got Irene out of the house and spruced up his bedroom in anticipation of taking it to the next level with Denny. No fairy lights though, so I’d say he’ll be unsuccessful. He was offering to put Irene up in a hotel to make up for the inconvenience, not sure how he’s affording that on a diner wage.


Harley, is it?

Wednesday, May 21st, 2014

I have a question: why does Heath have the baby if the ma isn’t dead yet?

Harley started roaring when he met Cheryl, an appropriate response, some might say.

Matt was trying to be all things to his little sister while their da is in jail. Sasha has some form in this area, so she convinced Matt to hand the young one over to DOCS. In fairness to Matt, at least he didn’t make Ellie live in a toilet.

Leah is still in hospital but her liver is on the mend, so no donor for her. Jett is delira and Veej is nowhere to be seen.

P.S. DANNY WAS A DOG! Good woman Cheryl.

Johnny Barrett’s kid

Friday, November 22nd, 2013

So, it turns out that Josh’s da used to hang around with Danny “The Dog” Braxton. Maybe there’ll be a Big Boyz Bash-Up between the Braxtons and the Barretts.

Casey is getting on very well in the Casey Braxton Wing of Summer Bay General. His legs are recovering rapidly and things are looking up with Tamara. Plus Kyle has had his head turned by Evelyn From The Cult, so there’s no competition from him.

Evelyn and Ricky are best buds, so they are heading off to a mysterious location with Zac in an attempt to deprogramme Evelyn. Brax was bamboozled, but sure he just had a secretive trip of his own.

Oscar is moving in with Leah. But of course. The folk of Summer Bay live a stray. I wonder who’ll take Josh in?

Oi, you goose

Thursday, June 27th, 2013

Heath must have been reading Enid Blyton lately, if his choice of insult is anything to go by.

The Braxtons still have not figured out who set Casey up. Ricky confessed to Kyle that there’s a greater power at play, but didn’t tell him who it is. Kyle will tell Brax, but only at the very very last minute.

Rosie went to Principal Scott to say she wanted to leave school. OK, said Principal Scott. Sasha was aghast at this advice and rightly gave Bianca what-for. Bianca had another chat to Rosie and convinced her to stay in school. This would never have happened in Gina’s day.

John told Jett to stay well away from Casey, since he got caught up in the armed robbery investigation. Marilyn then backed up John’s advice with a friendly chat. Eh, hello Marilyn? A few months ago you were best buds with Danny THE DOG Braxton.

John and Jett got flowers for Marilyn, as a thank-you for her support. This convinced her that John is romantically interested, as Alf had previously told her. She is going to distance herself from the Palmer-Jameses.

Maddie is being the most annoying human in the universe by moaning that Spencer doesn’t like her anymore. I don’t like you anymore either, Maddie.

Brothers in the Bush

Thursday, May 16th, 2013

For some mad reason, Casey and Kyle went out to the Bush to sort out their differences. They agreed they are better off without Danny THE DOG, and Kyle swore off Tamara. They returned to the Bay after a night hitching, because Casey locked the keys in Indi’s gym car.

Indi fired Casey; she’s sick of being abandoned. Casey ignored the firing and showed up for work as usual. Luckily Indi didn’t argue, as she is going mad with grief.

Brax, now that all the Braxtons are sorted, told Ricky he likes her. Cue disaster, and possible appearance of Ghost-Charlie at long last.



Judgement day

Thursday, February 7th, 2013

Romeo and Dex are having a hard time, remembering which lies they told when trying to cover up his trip to the hospital. Pretty stupid move by them given that their respective girlfriends are far smarter than they are. Romeo is worried about Dex so decided to tail himself and April to the diner. The ladies are suss, especially Indi, Romeo can’t lie to save his life. Dex felt guilty and fessed up about the whole thing which April freaked at. His dishonesty and attempts to protect her has backfired in a big way.

Casey’s trial jury has reached a verdict. They pronounced him not guilty of murder, he got off on self defence, but he was found guilty of armed robbery. The judge gave him a good behaviour bond, so no jail for Casey. The Braxtons are over the moon, understandably, except for Kyle. He’s feeling dum about his da, the dog. Heath took him up to the graveyard. The two brothers bonded over the fact that their Dad didn’t give a damn about them. So far so good until Watson and Constable John turned up in Angelo’s to arrest Kyle for kidnapping Casey. Another trial?

Natalie, sporting a lovely waistcoat, is happy that the trial is over as she can get it back on with Brax now. Sasha is happy about her fella but she wants Tamara “the desert girl” to leave town, having a love rival on the scene doesn’t sit well with her.

Sid is worried about Lisa, she hasn’t been responding to his texts. He doesn’t know that she’s made up with her mental hubbie, Neil. Sid should go round there and check on her himself.

Hot head Heath

Wednesday, October 17th, 2012

Heath Braxton is a ticket. He is all sweetness and light with Bianca, and a ball of rage with the Braxton brothers. Poor Dr. Sid can’t say a word without him questioning and doubting it. He has no respect at all for authority – sure what would a doctor know about medical issues? Heath topped off his recent run of rage by giving Casey a bawks (as they say in Dundalk – ‘mon the town) for killing Danny the Dog.

Speaking of the word “dog”, Heath’s delivery is very halfhearted compared to Brax’s. No passion in it.

Casey could do with some bashing lessons; everyone is using him as a punching bag these days. He did have a go at Heath, in an effort to get arrested, but it was more a tumble than a blue.

Marilyn is a bit upset that Danny’s dead. He was always nice to her, the dog.

Roo’s ex is still hanging around. He’s starting up a business in the city, and wants Roo’s advice. I’d say he’s also hoping for a bit of Business Time. Harvey’s reaction is to not act like a real person – does anyone act so jealous when they meet a partner’s ex in real-life?

Everyone’s forgotten about Dexter. I’m going to have to go to Summer Bay Hospital MYSELF to get an update.

Dead Daddy Danny

Tuesday, October 16th, 2012

Bang, bang, Danny’s dead. Casey’s in for it. It’s a big Braxton balls-up. Oi.

Father vs son

Monday, October 15th, 2012

Casey has been snared rapid. Himself and Brax thought they had pulled the wool over Danny’s eyes but no, there’s life in the old dog yet. He was wise to their ruse and knew that Casey wasn’t genuine in his expressed desire to pull a robbery and go on a road trip with Danny. So he dragged Casey into the robbery and tried to force him to shoot the only witness. Casey refused but Danny was having none of it. Just as Brax and Natalie arrived outside, a gunshot rang out, but who did it hit?

Gina was having a great birthday lunch with John and Jet in Angelo’s, the young lad even bought her a book as a present. All rosy in the garden, or was it? Next minute their bliss was shattered when a knock at the door informed them that Jet’s father, Richard, has appealed for full custody of his son. I’m sure Jet will decide to turn him down and stay in the Bay.
