So, when were you going to tell me you were leaving?

Thursday, May 3rd, 2012

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.

Help us solve this mystery, where did the chlamydia originate? Have we left someone out?

Edit: it doesn’t matter, Ruby doesn’t have chlamydia, so the buck stops with Emily.

So, Miles told Leah ’twas him who helped Veej write to Elijah.  Leah went mental, then calmed down and called around to the caravan park with a confession.  She’s been writing to Elijah every day since he left.  Where in the name of God did she get the time to do that?  No wonder she’s so flustered.

All this talk of Elijah makes me think he might be coming back.  Normally when someone leaves the Bay, they’re never/rarely heard of again.  For example, Dani, Jade, Kirsty, Cassie, Rhys, Shelly, Tasha, Geoff, Robbie, and the list goes on.

In another unusual H&A move, no-one has found out about Hugo’s money.  Well, Charlie knows, but it’s not public knowledge.  What’s that about?  Anyway well done to the writers for not following their usual path!

Ah here.  H&A is way too sad these days.  First was the whole Miles/Rabbit scenario, and now today Leah and VJ visited Vinnie’s grave to say goodbye.  That’s enough sadness now, I thought.

Elijah didn’t think so, though.  He threw in a tragic story about his dad dying on a fishing trip.  I’m not able for this.

Aden’s stupid brother had a flashback and now thinks he killed their da.  It looks to me like the dad was drink-driving and had a crash.  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.  Possibly inspired by Ruby’s seduction of Geoff using fairy lights, he lit a load of candles.  The Campbells are suckers for small light sources.

There was a lot of quick moving in that episode.  Hugo’s “funeral” was about a week ago, so it’s about time Martha moved on.  First, she expertly roped Liam into working on the farm, then asked him to move in, then leapt on him.  The girl wastes no time.

Furthermore, Geoff made a life decision and left the Bay to be a missionary in the space of about three hours.  Ruby didn’t look too happy at all.  He didn’t even tell Xavier or anyone else in town.

Miles helped Leah get over her agoraphobia.  She did some pretty good acting so there’s not much to slag off there really.

The lost boy

Friday, February 19th, 2010

Geoffrey has lost his mojo.  The Diner race riots have left him scarred mentally and physically.  He tried to take it out on one of the hoons in the surf club but two faced Palmer didn’t back him up and Geoff was left feeling stupid.  Ruby picked the wrong time for a deep and meaningful and Geoff blew his top.  He kicked her to the curb and get some advice from Alf who suggested he get God on the blower.  The priest at the church was busy doing the hoovering but took a few minutes out of the housework to give Geoff some meaning to his life.  But what did he suggest?  Housekeeper in the church?  A life of crime?  Auditioning for the new Captain Birdseye?  We’ll have to wait until next week to find out.

Father, I killed a man

Mink thought she was dead hard telling Xavier about her crime of passion. Sure murder is nothing special in Summer Bay. In fact, it’s the least of the local worries – top of that list is finding a spot on the beach to sit and think about your woes.

Leah has caught the Alf bug and then some; she’s falling apart. There she was, sitting on the floor, roaring crying. Maybe she was trying to recreate the riot scenes. That’s what she did then too. She should invite Irene, Ruby and Colleen around to complete the picture.

Geoff gave Ruby a good telling-off. Her moaning about how she was to blame for the riot tipped him over the edge. I don’t think fairy lights will win him around this time.

Blind leading the blind

Did you see the face on Charlie when Angelo was promoted above her?  So disgusted.  At least they discussed it and now it’s sorted (boss).

I never thought I’d say this, but Alf is being really annoying with his constant threats to leave the Bay.  Just go, so.  Himself and Angelo became great mates within the space of a day, downing tinnies in the Caravan Park of an evening.

Why did Geoff take advice from Martha, the walking disaster area?  “Get saltwater into the wound”, she said.  Geoff doesn’t get metaphors, so he ripped off his bandages and lepped into the sea.  I wonder what Doctor Armstrong will have to say about that.  Maybe it’s a radical new therapy they use in Summer Bay.

I don’t understand why Alf and Geoff are so traumatised.  Fair enough with Leah as her fella got bashed in front of her very eyes.  But all the two lads were doing was firefighting until the authorities arrived.  Unless they still can’t believe that everyone else sat on the floor and left them to deal with the disaster.  That’d leave a sour taste in my mouth, too.

Don’t go Geoff!

Who will counter Ruby’s mad ideas?  Who will bring up religion occasionally? Who will look confused all day long (ok, there’s Martha for that)?

I guess you have your reasons.

Fairy lights

Wednesday, January 27th, 2010

In today’s episode, Ruby got Geoff to take it to the next level with her. What was her secret weapon?  Fairy lights.  Geoff loves them, can’t get enough of them, thinks they are dead sexy.

Nicole, in the space of about two hours, found out Liam cheated on her, broke up with him, and decided she was in love with Aden.  The girl must be working to a deadline.  Also, her hair was deadly tied up.

Aden got the ok to move on from dead Belle, so he quit his job, nicked a car, and took Nicole on a spin. Not his brightest move.

Finally, Leah got Miles to eat something. I miss the days when he was eating in every scene.
