Psycho Sid

Monday, March 25th, 2013

Sid is off getting his head sorted. Indi is grand with him having his own time, but Dex was too curious about his well-being. He went looking for his Dad and tracked him down, can’t see Sid being too happy about his family finding out about his breakdown.

Romeo had a chat with John Palmer and got a brain-wave when discussing the gym. What’s happened to the old Summer Bay Super Bods? Nobody is leasing it at the moment so Romeo and Indi are going to take it over. Will they do as good a job as Jesse and Hayley did when it first opened? Tony and John also had a go at running it . I back Romeo to get it going, it’s a perfect job for somebody like him, plus he’ll have Indi’s business acumen at his disposal.

Alf and Celia are still a-bluing. Marilyn decided to mediate in the scrap and get the siblings back on speaking terms. Alf said he is sick of his little sister’s lies. He should ask her to stick her tongue out to see if it’s black.

No punches pulled

Well, a few people took their veritaserum in that episode:

  1. Sasha rightly told Indi she was a walking disgrace for getting together with Liam so soon after breaking up with his “best mate”* Romeo.
  2. Veej pointed out to Liam that none of his relationships last, e.g. Bianca, Hayley. It’s a sad day when a 13-year-old is giving you love advice.
  3. Sid told April to wake up and smell the comatose boyfriend. He’s losing hope.

Also, in a realistic move, Sid phoned Dex’s ma.

Finally, why does Liam wear leather jackets when everyone else is in vests and shorts? Does he think he’s back in Ireland or what?

* About 5 times in that episode, someone referred to Liam and Romeo being best mates. Not since the days of building Liam’s house-that-never-was have they had a storyline together – amirite?

Who the f*** is Alison?

Tuesday, July 24th, 2012

Leah has a new pet project, looking after Liam. She needs something else to focus on since she was spurned by Brax. She left the Diner to take Liam to the hospital but as she was going, she asked Alison to look after the place. Who is ALison and why is she minding the place? Half the bay works there, almost every female cast member seems to do a shift but it’s up to Alison to hold her steady while Leah swans off with Liam. What’s the Bay coming to?

Da Braxton got out of jail which was pretty amazing given that Hayley was high and then in withdrawal during the hearing. Judicial standards must be pretty low in Australia. Heath displayed surprising reason in denying her further drugs mid hearing but it didn’t make any difference, she got the old man off. Brax decided to resort to getting locked on his own in his own restaurant which can’t be great for business.

Liam managed to recover from his fit but got a telling off from Sid for his coke binge. He resolved to stay straight after his wake up call which meant an end to his dalliance with Hayley. She didn’t take it very well but he won’t let her drag him down with her. I hope that’s the end of her now, getting a bit sick of her sober/relapse cycle.

Lottie overheard Roo saying she isn’t much craic, so she enlisted Sasha to help her rebel. Personally, I think Sasha should’ve let her get a Blood and Sand tattoo. Roo and Lottie had a great oul’ row over it, and Alf was suitably smug that he wasn’t involved. The girls made up, anyway. Roo mentioned Martha. Ah, Martha. So mental.

Did the Lottie actress break her leg in real life?

Brax is doubly raging – at Hayley because she’s gonna free his da, and at Liam because he’s stupid enough to be involved with Hayley. Hayley is back on the gear, yet again.

Leah welcomed the counsellor lady to the Bay. She won’t be too happy when Natalie snares Brax.

Brax said “Oi” to some cops. It’s the perfect phrase for any occasion. His da is very sure of a release. Oi indeed.

Liam’s back on the gear. His hair got fairly messed up in the session. Also, he had a fit, but not as good as Bianca’s.

Romeo reluctant

Monday, July 16th, 2012

Ruby and Romeo aren’t going to last. Ruby is doing her best to keep her man all to herself, even warning Indi off talking to him. She wants them to move in together but he’s not sure they’re ready for that step. Indi has tried to stick to her promise but Romeo’s not too impressed with the cold shoulder treatment and confronts his wife/ex-wife. She revealed that Ruby warned her off, setting up a showdown.

Roo & Gina have been infected by the Summer Bay good Samaritaan trend, they’ve both taken in strays. First Jet then Lottie found new homes, so all’s well for the kids. There must be a local authority ruling that you can’t live in the town without taking in a troubled teen.

Jet is still on the rob and Hayley is still on the dope. Liam is back on the grog. Let’s hope that doesn’t lead him back to his wicked ways, Hayley is a bad influence on the poor fool but he doesn’t seem able to see it. He got locked playing the guitar and found her stash. Surely he won’t fall off the wagon again?

A catch-up

Sunday, July 8th, 2012

After a H&A catch-up, we found out:

Jet’s ma was dead for three days before anyone found out. Poor Jet. Gina is looking after him.

Ruby found out Romeo gave Indi money. Like Jolene, Ruby begged Indi not to take her man.

Alf had malaria and is now flamin’ grand. Phew.

Roo will have to move out if she wants to live with Harvey. Alf’s not keen on him at all.

Heath and the da had a great scrap at the jail.

Liam asked Hayley to stay away from Heath. She can’t because she’s checking out Da Brax for him. She conveniently found out he was jailed on the evidence of a crooked cop. Braxton will be free.

Since you’ve been gone

Monday, July 2nd, 2012

So, Alf is back. Since he left, Romeo and Indi have broken up, Jet and Lottie arrived, Colleen left, and Heath wore many vests. He’s already re-established himself as local treasure by giving Romeo business advice and turfing Hayley out of the diner.

Of course, Romeo didn’t take the advice. Instead, he lodged some of Ruby’s money (for buying surf stock) into Indi’s bank account. She’ll have spent that on slankets in no time. Unless of course, she’s with Ulster Bank – then who knows when she’ll get the cash.

Marilyn was jumped by someone, I reckon it was Jet robbing her bag, but Flathead says the person looked taller. Only time will tell.

Leah wore a bow in her hair. Strange move, but it was nice all the same.

Jet is some kind of school genius. He doesn’t even need to pay attention to take it all in. Gina and Xavier are keeping a good eye on him.

Hayley tried to off herself by wandering slowly into the surf. Liam galloped after her. Why does he bother? What did his post-it say, by the way?

He was a dog

Da Braxton’s on the scene. In an amazing coincidence, while Casey was talking to the school counsellor, Heath was visiting  their father in jail, despite not having seen him in 12 years. Never mind Kirstie and Jade, the Braxton boys must have some kind of psychic connection.

Da Braxton is a gruff Sean-Connery look-a-like. Heath has High Hayley checking out his father’s legal records, in the hope that a release might be on the cards. Brax and Casey were delighted when Da went to jail, but Heath is more stupid and so sees him in a more favourable light.

Isn’t it a bit mad that all the Braxtons call Darryl, Brax?

What do you foresee for Da Braxton? I think he’ll have a dalliance with Marilyn, and a showdown with Alf (who is on his way to the Bay, yahoo!). Whatever happens, I’d say he and his amazing moustache are in for some good storylines.

In other news, Hayley is running around looking for Liam, and Leah’s not impressed. She asked Brax to help sort it out.

Ruby is going full steam ahead with the surf shop plans, despite warnings from Romeo, Leah and Indi.

Beat the teacher

Thursday, June 21st, 2012

Gina organised a mediation with Mr. Townsend which went well according to Gina but not according to the angry man. He didn’t believe Casey’s apology. The situation wasn’t helped when the boys turned up at his car and threatened to bash it. He was convinced Casey put him them up to it and is determined to press charges which will lead to jail for Casey. The younger Braxton had better get used to bread and water.

Liam continued his romance with junkie lawyer Hayley. She’s clean now but Brax put her off the relationship, telling her to leave town. Liam was unimpressed but maybe he’s better off without her.

Coleen is leaving town and fears that nobody cares. She’s been giving out gifts left right and centre, without much fuss being made by the recipients. Unbeknownst to her, the locals are organising a secret send off to wish her bon voyage. What will Madge Wilkins do without her? Hopefully she’ll turn up on our screens at the going away do.

A sad day in Summer Bay

Wednesday, June 20th, 2012


I’m deeply saddened at the news that Colleen and her amazing gold quilted jacket are off to America. Of course, Lancey and Debbie magically want her now that she’s loaded. Although it sounds like Lance still has a grá for Marilyn!

In true Summer Bay fashion, she’s leaving in two days. Quite the hasty departure.

Lottie wants to move in with her da. Dunno why. Her mother must be quite the wagon. Harvey put her off until after his case. He stupidly refused help from legal goddess Morag. Have a nice time in jail, Harve.

Hayley is still off the gear. She’s hooked on Rockstar now. Liam seemed happy enough to go along with her advances.
