A mud hut in Mangrove River

Thursday, August 28th, 2014

John and Marilyn were having trouble fitting in at the caravan park, so they decided to look at buying a new property. However, purchasing was proving too expensive, so renting was the next option they considered. Hannah and Oscar chipped in with some impromptu real estate advice, but the lovebirds finally decided to give John’s house another go. Much ado about nothing there, lads.

Heath was offering advice too. He told Andy that Hannah clearly doesn’t consider him her relationship equal. Andy took this on board and confronted Hannah.

Phoebe went off half-cocked and decided to sell anything her father ever gave. Luckily, Kyle (in a YOLO tshirt) talked some sense into her.

YOLO, Kyle

YOLO, Kyle

Roo was still complaining of “jet lag”. She mentioned it four or five times. Now, when someone complains of an ailment in Summer Bay, they usually die of it shortly after (see Gina and her headaches). Roo later collapsed due to said mystery ailment. So, what do ye reckon? Cancaaah?

Fallout

Wednesday, April 23rd, 2014

What happened today?

  • Heath met Jess
  • Bianca saw them and got the hump
  • Irene told her to cop on
  • Heath tried to sort it out with Bianca
  • She made him choose between her and the baby
  • Jess went into labour
  • Matt kissed Sash
  • Matt told Spencer
  • Spencer punched Matt
  • Sasha apologised to Spencer
  • He is sick of her drama and dumped her
  • Jett blackmailed Sasha to get on the council
  • Jett is using the student council to commemorate Gina

I’d say Sasha and Matt will be doing a line before long.

Let joy be unconfined

Monday, January 13th, 2014

TBTG, Home and Away is back; we haven’t seen Brax, Jett and the gang since 2013. The elder Braxton has gone to jail for at least 10 years and the rest of them don’t know what to be at. Heath is pretending to be a grown-up; he even defended the medical profession at one point, which must be a first. Ricky is a basket case, and can’t handle her man being banged up at all.

Hannah is a nurse, apparently. She helped out when Josh arrived in hospital, thanks to his mam’s fondness for handguns. So that crowd are sticking around, Hannah, Oscar and Evelyn of the shocking attire.

Jett wants John to tell Marilyn he’s only mad about her. John doesn’t want to let Gina go. Eh, John, this is Summer Bay; you’re only expected to mourn for 8-10 episodes.

The ghost bus

Tuesday, October 22nd, 2013

John, Marilyn and Jett are still trapped in the bush. John headed off to get help from a garage but while Jett and Marilyn were left behind they started talking about Gina and then shazam – the bus started working again. I think the bus is possessed by Gina’s ghost, which should make their tours interesting, if a bit spooky.

Sally is going to take Pippa 2 to the states, against the better judgement of the evil doctor. She had a few more run-ins with April but gave her a lecture where April seemed to take a few points from Dr Bradley. Sometimes doctors have to be tough apparently. She spoke to Tamara and told her it was time she made up her mind on Casey and Kyle, which bro will she go for, “Crazy Eyes” or “Jutting Jaw”?

Weddings, wine and worries

Wednesday, October 16th, 2013

Bianca is planning her wedding with Zac, who she seems to be into all of a sudden. Leah and Irene are dead suspicious. The teachers went back to Bianca’s house to get locked on wine and have a bit of a flirt. They were having a great time until he asked her a question she didn’t want to hear: are you sure he’s the right one for you? Cue an affair with Zac, and Heath getting jilted at the altar if her past record is anything to go by.

Pippa 2 is sick. She had a fit at school and had to be taken to hospital. Sally is worried that the treatment in the US may not work, is it too late for the kid?

Jett copped on that Marilyn is into John and gave her a talking to, she’ll never replace Gina. She’s going to carry on with the business but is going to try and put her feelings to one side after a chat with Roo. Good luck with that Maz.

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?

Passion on the pier

Monday, July 22nd, 2013

Sash and Spencer exchanged a pash on the pier. These two have been flirting and skirting around each other for a while now so it’s good they finally got it on. Indi and Harvey were the cupids of this liaison and everybody seems happy with the results, bar Roo who doesn’t want to be the one who breaks it to Maddie; there will be some amount of moaning out of her.

Leah was freaked out in her own house but Irene calmed her down and she went to the gym for a chat with Indi. This set her straight and she returned home to vandalise the wallpaper in her own home. Maybe she could leave the diner and start a redecorating business.

John got his comeuppance courtesy of Marilyn and Jett. They figured out he was playing up and caught him out. Then they all had a great laugh at John’s foolishness, the old scamp. I reckon he’s going to ask her to move in and she will, the boys need a new doormat to attend to their every whim since Gina passed away.

Bad Patient

Monday, July 15th, 2013

Mr. John Palmer is in hospital after what can only be described as a Rocky-style test of strength and stamina with Harvey. Jett is very annoyed as John isn’t looking after himself, one of their primary promises to each other after Gina died. Jett has now declared all promises null and void.

Dex had to give Mr. JP a sponge bath. However, later, he found out he passed his exams. You gotta take the rough with the smooth. Young Walker wasn’t impressed with his results, expecting them to be better. Sid pointed out that he’d had a brain injury, so basically, cop on.

Sasha and Spencer have eyes for each other, but due to a number of misunderstandings, they each think the other wants to be just friends. Indi is no longer playing the morose widow and is now matchmaker and schoolie-employer extraordinaire. She wanted someone to cover the gym while she is at Uni, so, eh, she hired Spencer, who will be at school during that time. WTF.

 

 

The widow Walker

Monday, July 1st, 2013

Maddie is still down in the dumps because Spencer is no longer giving her his unconditional attention. She seems annoyed that he isn’t heart-broken over their latest break-up. She got upset on the beach and he gave her a hug, overseen by Zac. Zac thinks that she only booked a counselling session with Nat to get some notice from Spencer.

Marilyn was fretting over John and their conversations. She thought he had the hots for her but was afraid to say it to him. She sat him down and told him her fears but he said they were groundless, he is far from ready to move on from Gina, they’re just friends and Marilyn feels awful.

Indi is doing it tough. Sid advised her to let go of Romeo as he’s probably passed away by now. It might be time for her to take to her surf board again, something she found hard to do while her husband was still alive, as it was something they had done together. It’s going to be difficult for the young Walker widow, she’ll have to find a way move on, dipping her toe back in the surf could be the first step on that journey.

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.
