Wed and fled

Friday, February 14th, 2014

After all the drama, April and Dex’s wedding passed off peacefully (despite her dress). The reception was in a barn, just like Jack and Martha’s. Thankfully, no crazy stalkers turned up.

Later on, Indi went to the gym to reflect before she left the Bay. BUT, WHY DID ALF GO THERE TOO, IN THE MIDDLE OF THE NIGHT?

The next day, the Walker family (except Sasha) left town. Sasha was emotional, which was understandable, because she’ll never see her family again. Such is the way in Summer Bay.

Indi’s not selling the gym, but she is relinquishing control to the Bashing Brothers Braxton. Good move?

Wedding mayhem

Thursday, February 13th, 2014

Everyone loves a wedding, except the bride in this case:

Dex and April's wedding

Nothing was going quite right on the day. The cake was wrong, golf themed instead of wedding, Dex’s shirt got ruined and the flowers didn’t arrive. But it didn’t matter as the couple were so in love and nothing else mattered. Or so we thought.

April had last minute panic as poor Dex was left at the altar. Will Bianca and Tamara be able to persuade her that it’s all ok? Will she leg it to Paris on her own leaving him stranded with no wife and no career? April would want to watch it, if she gets to stressed she might regret it.

Sasha needs a gaff

Wednesday, February 12th, 2014

Sid has decided that since Dex and April, and Indi, are leaving town, the farm should be rented out. Sensible. However, this renders Sasha homeless, so Sid wants to take her with him to live the life of a Flying Doctor. Sasha is not impressed. Who will take her in? Or, seeing as this is Summer Bay, the question should probably be: who won’t?

Dex and April are getting married tomorrow. That is some speedy wedding.

Tamara, single for one day, tried to talk Casey into resuming their relationship. Tsk. He had the good sense to say no.

Casey is going to take on the gym. It’s going to be called Braxton’s Bulging Biceps.

 

Dead set legend

Monday, February 10th, 2014

Chris explained to Sasha that Spencer wasn’t into Evelyn, thus saving the relationship. He then pronounced himself a dead set legend, which is a phrase I will henceforth be using daily.

Casey couldn’t make a decision for himself, so off he went to prison to visit Brax.

Dump her

Dump her, oi

Then Casey found Tamara at the farm, dumped her (if she gets back with Kyle arghhhhhhhhHHHHHH), and then Dopey Dex and April asked them to be best man and bridesmaid! The thicks. Of course, the other two thicks will go along with it and pretend to be a couple.

Finally, Jett and Nina left the barn and came back to the real world, whereupon Mr. John Palmer rightly give out yards to his adopted son.

Where’s Winston?

Tuesday, January 21st, 2014

John and Marilyn’s burgeoning romance has been foiled twice; first by a rampaging Maddy, then by Banger going missing off the coast of cyclone-ridden China. Poor Roo is in bits over it.

Heath’s studies got off to a rocky start, but Dex is guiding him through the world of education. Heath is coming up with some amazing nerd-related insults, too.

Maddy and Josh zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz. What is the story with the new doc’s accent? Anyway, Josh did a runner from hospital.

New teacher is a super wagon, especially where Heath is concerned. Bianca is having none of it.

I want to be friends with Dex on Facebook

Wednesday, January 15th, 2014

Dex and the Doc are engaged; he couldn’t contain himself and posted the news on Facebook before they had a chance to tell anyone in person. April wasn’t too pleased but got over it quickly enough. However, when Dr. Weird Accent wasn’t overly enthused about the subject of marriage, she questioned their decision a bit. Expect more will-they-won’t-they, until they finally do.

Josh is in a bad way in the hospital but he has Actual-Good-Nurse Hannah looking after him, and Ricky hovering nearby, so he should be right.

Spencer delivered Evelyn’s note to Oscar. In it, she warned Oscar not to let Spencer go on the retreat. She could have just told him that in person. Anyway, the discovery weekend is coming up, and Evelyn is guest of honour. Another cult-lady told her it was terrible, but wouldn’t divulge what went on. Evelyn is too young to have watched H&A in the good old cult days of Saul and Mumma Rose, so she doesn’t know creepy cults = teenage pregnancies. Here’s hoping Hannah, Zac and Oscar save the day (and buy her a new wardrobe).

Dr. Bradley’s Dastardly Break-Up

Monday, November 18th, 2013

Evil Dr. Bradley heard April and Dex gossiping one time too many and now is demanding one of them leave Summer Bay General. Fairly sure she could be done for unfair dismissal there.

Bianca doesn’t want to be known as Mrs. Braxton. Really, she doesn’t want to be in the same category as Cheryl. She’ll come around, though; my money is on her getting a blood and sand tattoo by the end of the week.

No sign of Spencil Hill and his manic behaviour in that episode; he’s off the meds that no-one mentioned since he arrived. Maybe he was climbing Stewart’s Point blindfolded or running to The City, or being generally giddy off-camera.

Ricky coaxed Tamara into visiting Casey in hospital. She did some mighty flirting when she got there. If anyone can get Case into a wheelchair, it’s her.

Brax has inexplicably left the Bay for a while. We know where he’s really gone – on a nightclub tour of Ireland!

A pocket full of what-ifs and if-onlys

Tuesday, October 8th, 2013

Oh my Gawdfather. Irene advised Marilyn to follow her heart (girlie) and tell John she fancies him. So, off Marilyn went, full of bravado, and asked John to be her partner…in a tourist bus business. Those tours will be some crack, and probably full of Irish people trying to get a look at Brax.

New Dr. Ms. Bradley hates April, and loves Dex. She’ll be trying to entice him back into the supply closet. April refused to work for 48 hours on the trot, and Bradley said “off you go love, but don’t bother your hoop coming back”. FIGHT!

Roo and Sally nearly put everyone in a coma fighting over who would stay in the house, and who in a van. Roo won. She can fairly pull a convincing argument out of her massive dress when she wants to.

Sad Sal

Wednesday, September 25th, 2013

Now, we acknowledged that Sally was back, but not why. Wee Pippa is on the way out, life-wise, and Sally wanted her to see the Bay before she popped her clogs.

Sally has no luck. Her fella, Flynn, died just after they got married, and now her daughter is terminally ill.

By the way, “dying”, and “cancer” are two of the best words to say in an Aussie accent, try it there, g’wan. Not that Pippa has cancer. She has, em, something else, and Sally is distraught as she may have to sell the house to pay for Pip’s treatment in America.

Which got me to thinking. Why does Alf live in that house? What happened to the house he used to live in with Ails? Why can’t anyone in the Bay live alone? Why do they all have to live in commune-type scenarios?

And also – who’ll buy the house? I think it’ll be Alf myself. Or perhaps Roo and Harvey will magic up some money and take it over.

No sooner had Sid ‘n Sash left the Bay, than Dex and Indi decided to throw a massive party. It was awesome, we know because Indi proclaimed it so. She packed Casey off to his leaba as he’d had about four beers. He gave her a smooch before he snoozed. She was taken aback, but in the morning she’ll see him in a whole, new, romantic light.

The wrong person is leaving

Tuesday, September 17th, 2013

It’s hard to get back into the swing of watching H&A every day; in the interim I’d forgotten that Rosie was pregnant, and Maddie was mental.

Handily, Rosie is leaving the Bay. The wardrobe department didn’t even have to worry about pregnancy outfits for her, and the props department didn’t have to root out a baby doll. Her dad is interested in her now, and she is happy to go off and live with him. Is this the same man who left her living alone, with only fish for company?

Maddie warned Sasha that Spencer won’t ever sleep with her.  I wouldn’t be so sure. He’s not gay (as Rosie affirmed), and Sasha is a laugh, as opposed to a moany moany whiner. Sounds like a good match to me.

John Palmer is broke. So broke, that he doesn’t even have a tenner. He’s hiding it from Jett, but won’t take money from Marilyn. Sure, she’s loaded with her triple income from hairdressing, waitressing in the diner, and the odd tarot reading. Hilariously, it was Gina’s funeral that bankrupted John. It must have been some send-off.

Sid is heading off to be a Flying Doctor. I am not impressed. He is a laugh and handy with a scalpel. Indi, Dex and Sasha are sticking around. This could all end in disaster.

Tamara is staying. Argh. She wants to stay with Kyle. Her parents should have taken them both.

In real life, apparently Sally and Leah were on This Morning this morning – did you see them?
