Take a walk on the wild side

Tuesday, February 11th, 2014

Dex & April went to Sasha’s day spa for their bucks and hen night. It ended up in a massive game of monopoly. Wild. April was accepted into her Paris course so they’re off to France, without telling their families. Sasha lost it as did Dr Sid who walked in the door as they were telling her. Great to have Sid back, maybe he’ll throw Dex a proper buck’s night in the ditch.

sid is back

Matt and the Sniper had a “secret meetup” outside the surf club but Leah spotted them. She knows something is up. Montgomery met Matt on the beech and told him to tell the cops that Bianca tried it on with him. He refused so she smacked him. I can’t see this going away in a hurry. Next she broke into the school and sprayed “Slag” on Bianca’s door, she’s trying to frame Matt again.

Casey got his HSC. I must say, I didn’t see that coming.

Dramatic deficit

Tuesday, February 4th, 2014

Once you get used to kidnappings, death threats and murder attempts it’s pretty hard to get used to quiet nights in with a pizza and a movie. This is the problem facing Casey and Tamara. They had a chat about their situation and discussed their scenario.  How will they get over the lack of drama? Maybe they should invent a stalker or an assassin to put a bit of spark back into their relationship.

I’m a bit worried about Jett’s diet, it seems to consist solely of chip sandwiches and pizza, that can’t be too healthy for a growing boy. Nina was hiding out in his place but John found them and he told her parents. He was due to bring her back to boarding school but he fell asleep and the kids were gone when he woke up, they’ve done a runner.

April and Dex are heading to Paris. She’s got a place in the “University of Paris” and they’re going to move over together. Once they go and Indi leaves on her travels it will mean Sasha is the only Walker left in the bay, she’ll be oh so lonely.

Endings and engagements

Tuesday, January 14th, 2014

Indi took possession of Romeo’s ashes, and found a letter for her amongst his stuff. He wanted his ashes sprinkled in the sea so they all went to the cliff top and threw him into the surf. I half expected them to feature a ghost surfer in the distance, going out to sea. No sign of Dr. Sid to help his daughter through this difficult period.

Leah spent the day looking after Oscar, he’s lonely without Evelyn. She is having a great time in her crazy cult and their newest recruit is Spencer. He thinks that brand of “self-improvement” will help him to deal with his illness without medication, I doubt it will be that simple.

Hannah started work in the hospital. April was there at work but left to be with Dex and Indi. The memorial service made him think about popping the question again and this time she said yes. I knew it was only a matter of time with those kids.

Day in court

Thursday, December 12th, 2013

Brax is up on murder charges so the Braxtons are getting scrubbed up to give him support. This courtroom is fairly lax, Cheryl and Josh’s mother shouted out their views during the hearing. Cheryl is happy to see that Casey and Tamara are back together as it means that she’s not with Kyle anymore. The Judge told them to come back for sentencing tomorrow but it doesn’t sound good given Brax has admitted to murder. Ricky and Cheryl are butting heads over who is the Braxton queen. Unbeknownst to them both, Josh’s bother is hanging around the bay with a gun, looking very mean. I’d say he means business.

The widow Walker is struggling to cope now that her hubby passed away. She’s in denial according to Dex and needs help with the gym. He failed to complete her class on the beach. Unfortunately for Indigo, Robyn was there too, poking her nose in and then called into the gym afterwards. She told Indi what she thought of her and got a slap in the face for her troubles.  Indi is struggling to cope; where is Dr. Sid now when his daughter needs her?

Chris is getting it from all angles. Indi told him to keep his distance then Irene told him to go after her and console her. After that Robyn turned up and gave him a serve for his cowardly ways, not even telling her it was over between them. He went to the farm and talked to Indigo where she said she feels guilt over cheating on Romeo with Chris. How come she didn’t think of this months ago?

Living in the now

Tuesday, October 29th, 2013

Dexter has gone to flying doctors training for a few days, leaving the Walker sisters at home to talk about Indi and Chris. He wants a serious relationship with Indigo but she’s not sure. Sasha thinks she should steer clear. Then herself and Spencer recruited Chris to help them break into Bianca’s office and remove the wedding bunting they had put up. It took them ages to clean it up and they ended up scrapping over Chris and Indi. Sort it out lads, it’s getting boring.

Sally is worried about Pippa 2 so Roo took her to the gym. I don’t know how Roo manages to go to the gym, it’s hard to do exercise when you’re wearing a massive dress. They gave Indi some love advice while they were there. Roo gave Sally the low-down on Romeo while they were there, been a while since anybody mentioned him. Is he dead yet? Nobody seems to know. Indi made her mind up after the chat and decided that she’s going to give it a proper go with Chris.

John is going ahead with his bus tour business. Harvey wants a job but there isn’t enough work for that yet. He could be on the dole for a while yet.

It’s fiesta time

Monday, September 30th, 2013

Dex, Indi and April decided that they were going to have a mexican fiesta night with tacos, sombreros and fake moustaches. Those three are party animals.

Maddy and Spencer are best mates again now, even to the point of rolling around on the beach in their swimwear. Things are much smoother between them now that Sasha is out of the picture, or is she? Welcome back Sasha, your Bay needs you. She got sick of living in the bush with Dr. Sid, plus she missed a certain Spencer. He seemed a bit awkward around her when she met him at his van. Maddy didn’t seem too happy to see her so she went to the farm and gave her a serve, which left Sasha in tears, surprisingly. Why would she give a damn what she thinks? She’s worried that she’s messed it up with Spencer, turn’s out she’s right. He reckons she hurt him once and he’s not willing to let it happen again.

Veej and Jett are very suss about Pippa and her illness. They know something is up, which isn’t surprising given Sally and Bianca were discussing it in the corridor. Miss Scott took Zac out for a walk to go through her condition, which gave the young lads their opportunity to break into the office and check out Pippa’s file. Now they know what it is, they were able to look it up, the cat’s out of the bag. They decided to go have a chat with her, they didn’t realise she was unaware of it. Wait until John and Leah get hold of them, they’ll be hell to pay.

Bianca is having a principal’s dinner at the school, her first one. Since when is this a thing? I don’t remember any of the other principals holding one. Heath doesn’t want to go as he has to wear a suit, maybe he could turn up in his shorts and topless, his usual attire.

Farewell flying doctor and daughter

Tuesday, September 24th, 2013

Sid and Sasha are off to Broken Hill for his new job. It’s a pity they’re going, they were good characters. Sasha in particular is a big loss. On the plus side, Dex and April decided to stay so they’ll live on the farm now. They are overwhelmed by the idea of cleaning up after themselves. Tough life. Is Sid going to continue to pay their rent?

Brax and Ricky are having a great time with each other, all loved up. They made the mistake of saying how well things were going, bad move. A lady called to the door and served him with a subpoena so he’ll have to testify against her in court. How romantic.

Kyle has decided to go for broke with Tamara. This might mean that Casey will never forgive him but he’s going to risk that for the sake of his relationship. She has had a bit of a flashback on her captivity under Adam, this could cause problems. What’ll happen if she wakes up one day and remembers everything? Kyle could be out on his ear and Casey back in favour.

They’ll always have Paris, or at least Yabbie Creek

Tuesday, September 10th, 2013

Today’s bayside business was all domestic. Things have calmed down since Adam got locked up. Isn’t it time they got a new psycho or villain around to stir things up?

April decided to treat Dex to a romantic day. She gave him snails for breakfast at the farm. It was a beautiful alfresco meal. Then she gave him a tango lesson, which was going well until a snake cut in and bit her on the leg. How rude, it didn’t even ask. She passed out due to the snake bite while waiting on the ambo to show up, so he had to drive her to the hospital himself. That would be ok but he has’t driven a car since his accident and his nerves are shot.

John sent Sid on a wild goose chase to see to Marilyn’s sickness. Only problem is that she’s not sick. She apologised to Sid in the diner and then John showed up so she had to fess up. There will be a reckoning there at some stage.

Zac was pumping iron in the gym and asked Indi if he should work on his bad boy image, to make him attractive like a Braxton. Could this be a new love interest for her now that he’s single?

There was some stuff with Heath, Darcy and Connie but I’m too bored to go into it.

Tea bags and tofu

Monday, July 29th, 2013

“I don’t want to marry you” was how April greeted Dexter’s pending proposal. She loves him too much to get married apparently. What’s the rush anyway, is what Indi and Sid were asking him, sure they have loads of time before the need to settle down.

Indi wishes she hadn’t gotten married to Romeo so young. She says it put extra pressure on their relationship and cost them a year, when they broke up, and she’d do anything to have that time back again. He’s still alive and out there now, I wonder if he’ll make a reappearance before he snuffs it? Maybe he’ll come back as a ghost and haunt the beach, riding phantom waves every morning.

Marilyn is moving out of John’s after Roo and Harvs staged an intervention. They told her that she was getting too close to John, again. There is no reason for her to still be living there, given that his back is better now. She moved back into the Caravan Park so they had better stock up on tea bags and tofu.

Casey is on the jar because Tamara left him. He should head off to Sid’s ditch and drink himself into next week, or head to Angelo’s and drink five shots like Brax did when Charlie died.

The Grand Finale

Thursday, July 18th, 2013

Adam’s criminal warehouse was like something out of Homeland. Brax ran in blind to rescue Ricky, even though he knew it was a trap. Adam was waiting for him and shot him in the belly, the low-down dirty rat. “Now I get to watch you die”, Adam said. I wasn’t sure if I was watching the wrong show, maybe this was Love/Hate and not Home and Away.

Cue Brax’s dream, him standing on top of a cliff, looking out to sea. It reminded me of Alf going on his spirit walk as the Aboriginal man years ago after an operation. Ricky called an ambulance for Brax but he was too busy zoning out and dying to pay attention to what was happening in the real world.

They managed to get him to the hospital and April and Dr Sid got to work on him. Heath turned up at the hospital to give Ricky a serve then went off at Dex and April for not being able to predict the future. Ricky got interviewed by the baldy nameless cop and dobbed on her bro. Casey and Kyle should be in the clear now.

Adam managed to walk into the hospital during the night and knocked Heath out with a wrench. Adam was about to kill Brax when ghost Charlie appeared in his dream. She told him to wake up, his eyelids fluttered open for a second, but it didn’t matter. Adam injected some stuff into the patient causing him to go into arrest. Dex disturbed Adam and Heath tackled him, but it could be too late for Darryl. Only ghost Charlie can save him now I reckon.

Zac is in trouble over Holly’s sex attack claims which appeared in the local news. He’s been suspended from school and had a rock thrown through his window. Maddie confronted Holly again but she remains unrepentant over her treatment of Zac.

I loved Alf’s “no flamin worries” and Jett’s “strewth” in yesterday’s episode. He’s developing into a proper Aussie bloke under the old man’s influence.
