Miles Copeland hasn’t had it easy since he moved to Summer Bay.Â As a down-and-out, he slept on the beach and wrote cryptic messages in the sand in the hopes that his sister would find him.Â Naturally, he went from living hand-to-mouth to becoming a teacher at the only school in town, and won the heart of Kirsty Sutherland.Â Unfortunately she turned out to be a total wagon.
These days Miles spends his time getting bashed and threatening children.Â It looks like Riley’s dad is behind it all.Â I hope the YCPD can crack this case.Â If not maybe they should bring Robert Robertson back.Â Maybe they should just do that anyway.
So, the teenage(-ish) couples of Summer Bay are all talking about sex.Â Ruby and Geoff decided they’ll have a go, while in a startling move, Nicole is standing her ground with Liam and refusing him access.Â Is that because she’s changed her tune, or because she has her wee eye on Aden?Â Ooooh, mucho mysterioso.
Now, where are Martha and Hugo and Suzy and Bungbung?
Martha is pining after BangBang/BumBum and Hugo is really pushing the “he needs to be with his own people” angle. What’s he at? Maybe HIS INDONESIAN WIFE who just showed up at his and Martha’s house can explain.
Gina is very annoyed with JPIII ever since he fired Romeo. That’ll cool his heels alright, but it’s nothing a surf and a drink won’t fix.
Geoff and Ruby have had their first tiff; he’s being over-protective and she is a big girl who can look after herself. Luckily Uncle Tony was on hand to dole out the only level-headed advice in all of Summer Bay to Geoff. Plus Rachel had a chat to Ruby. The Holden-Armstrongs should open a counselling centre. Dan who?
So Clint Eastwood is back on the scene, complete with son.Â He got arrested but managed to escape due to the ineptitude of the YCPD.Â He ran off to find the son, but instead bumped into the creepy weirdo from the island who Nicole and Geoff met a few months back.Â Turns out creepy weirdo speaks good Indonesian.Â Handy one.
Kirsty and Miles are in a bad way.Â Jai doesn’t know whether to eff off to Japan or not.Â So he told Annie she could go.
I still can’t believe Martha is running for office.Â That’ll be some laugh.Â It’ll be regulation miniskirts and knee-high boots in Summer Bay if she has her way.
OK, does Geoff only have one white vest?Â And when it’s in the wash, has he no choice but to walk around topless?
Xavier is wise to Geoff and Ruby.Â He warned Geoff off and after looking mega-confused for a while, Geoff agreed to leave Ruby alone.
Ruby’s not impressed though.
Nicole is going to the next level with Liam Murphy the rock star.Â This is a disaster in Kirsty’s eyes.Â I’d say Kirsty is jealous.Â Maybe she just wants a roll on the beach herself.
Charlie’s police radio went off in the diner – AT FULL BLAST.Â I’m surprised all the customers didn’t follow her to the police emergency.
Angelo, under slight duress, spilled the beans about his undercover operation.Â People-smuggling!Â Exotic!Â He thinks it’s Hugo running the show, but I bet it’s not.Â Who could it be?Â Palmer?Â Morag?Â Colleen?Â The excitement!
Ah, so Ruby Leeds is trying to steal Brendan away to a community house.Â Sure what harm, you might think.Â But Mammy Austin instinctively returned to the Bay just in time to stop Hugo shipping his brother off.Â She wants to keep Brendan all to herself.Â I’d say Ruby will convince her to set him free, though.
Geoff saw Ruby in the nip.Â He’s well into her.Â He’ll probably have visions of her now, just like Miles did when he first encountered Kirsty’s knickers.Â On a related note, the Aden and Geoff scenes are keeping the comedy scores up at the moment.
Hugo got a death threat.Â It was just like in the movies, with cut-out letters and everything.Â Spooky.Â Was it Trey’s da?Â Where’s Trey again?Â Did he go to jail?
CSI Summer Bay? Â Grant’s body turning up on the beech prompted the city to send in detective Robert Robertson to crack heads and get to the bottom of things ASAP. The Bay now has it’s own Dale Cooper.Â He’s already suspended Charlie and tried to do the same to Angelo. He brought Ruby to make her clap like a seal for some mad reason. Â Is it just me or does this storyline bear an uncanny similarity to that of Josh West’s killing? Everyone is a suspect and has a motive but it will turn out to be somebody else altogether.
Geoff and Aidan miming the boat test was classic. Turn my ear to start the engine. Â Brilliant stuff. Â When they roped Alf in, it got even better. Â More of this kind of thing.
Whoop whoop, Brendan is back, throwing parties and telling tales.Â Ma Austin has a new fella and she doesn’t wanna talk about it.
Nicole is well into Sid now, she called to his house on the night of her birthday and basically demanded a trip to the next level.Â I don’t know why he’s resisting; it really is futile.
Xavier is in big trouble after roaring at Ruby when he saw Geoff helping her into her dress.Â Geoff however, saw an opportunity and wooed her with chick flicks and ice-cream.
Oh bejingo, Angelo Risotto Rossetti is on an undercover mission; to get Hugo.Â He has Gibsy working for him now.Â It’s only a matter of time before his secret is uncovered along with a box of hands that he keeps on his boat (probably).
So, Belle is a goner. She only got married last week, yesterday she was swimming and today, she’s kaput. That was the fastest non-accidental demise ever.
Still and all when it came to it, it was touching, and nice that Belle got to go home to Irene’s. I half expected Aden to climb out the window the next morning. Earlier in the episode there was loads of messing with Liam Murphy trying to make amends, and Amanda trying to hospitalise Belle. Sound Doctor Sid sorted her out by calling Rachel in. I’m not really sure what Rachel did, but it worked.
This is actually very upsetting. Belle wasn’t half as annoying as some of the SB residents and now she’s on the way out. Irene didn’t take it too well but she came around in the end. I was waiting for a classic “Oh my Gawdfather” but perhaps the situation was too grave.
Dunno why Nicole has gone stone mad though; has she just copped on that Roman is in jail? Confused Geoff was certainly striking while the iron was hot anyway!
