Roo riddle

Wednesday, September 10th, 2014

Home and Away is like an episode of House at the moment; Roo picked up a virus somewhere on her travels, and it’s up to Alf and his merry bunch to find out why. According to Colleen, she left Vegas weeks ago. Our money is on a Martha-and-Hugo visit, maybe with some people smuggling thrown in, for good measure?

Darcy and Heath are on their best behaviour, ahead of his custody claim. But Sophie (dressed as a squaw) asked Heath for a meeting, to discuss school matters. What’s that about?

Ricky still wants a bub.

Spencer and Chris miraculously found Andy’s drugs, under his van. They should work for YCPD drugs squad.

Brain surgery

Wednesday, March 5th, 2014

Boom! That’s the sound of Summer Bay reacting to the Sniper blowing up the hospital.

Bianca and Heath were trapped inside with Nate once the roof collapsed. Bianca had pressure on the brain, what Hugo might refer to as a brain explosion.

Nate said there is nothing for it, I’ll have to drill into her skull to relieve the pressure; she needed that like she needed a hole in the head.  Alf and the orange jumpsuit lads turned up in time to get her out but it’s touch and go whether she’ll be ok.  I love when Alf gets his emergency gear on, you know it’s business time when that happens.

The twins and Kyle are still trapped in the container without oxygen, food or water. Unbeknownst to them and their captors, Ethan was critically injured in the explosion and he won’t be back anytime soon. He croaked it and now nobody knows where the missing children and Kyle are.  Will Zac be able to save them before they resort to eating each other?

Melbourne meltdown

Friday, October 18th, 2013

Bianca, in a surprising move, asked Ricky to be her bridesmaid rather than her own sister April. She rang Brax to try to get through to Heath but Brax couldn’t find him, he’d gone off with the barmaid. Cue a mad scramble by the Braxton bros to find the buck who bolted. Kyle and Casey woke up topless on a rooftop bed with a pineapple. On the plus side, they seem to have buried the hatchet to some degree.

Brax finally found the groom in the sea on his own. He told Brax about how “he stuffed up”, not the first time that’s happened. Cue a lecture and the realisation that he’s going to have to tell his fiancé about his fling.

Chris is back and creating friction. He insulted Sasha on the beach and Indi wasn’t too impressed with his smooth talk either. He was a loose end so he ended up hanging out on the beach with Maddy. He is up to something, trying to split up Spencer and Sasha maybe? Chris threw Sasha into the water and she lost it. He said he’s going to make it up to her by cooking breakfast for them on the farm.

Irene is still under stress at work. She is due another health scare I reckon. She went around to Leah’s for a chat and found out that Leah is quitting the diner. What will she do next? A social media startup in the Bay? A debt collection business? Maybe she’ll go into organised crime and get into the people smuggling business, there must be a gap in the market since Hugo left town.

And apparently, Heath and Xavier are mates.

It was Gina’s funeral and there was a great turn-out. Marilyn wore a fascinator, Maddie got the violin involved, there were Austin roses, and two brothers missing. Officer Xavier Austin stepped up to the plate and eulogised.

Casey didn’t bother his hoop going, as Indi would be too cross. Indi didn’t go either, bit sly considering all the help John gave her in setting up the gym. She is angry that she isn’t getting a chance to say goodbye to Romeo.

Jett is getting free dinners at Angelo’s for the foreseeable future. Good man Brax. Sid also cheered the Palmers up a bit by reminding them that Gina saved them, even as she was dying. Small comfort all the same.

The cops are after Ricky. Uh-oh.

Passing of a principal

Wednesday, May 22nd, 2013

Gina’s dead? It’s her own fault for saying how great things were going yesterday. What are John and Jett going to do now? Will he still adopt the kid? Marilyn is being a great help, she’s a trooper in times like this.

Will any of her sons turn up for the funeral? They said Xavier is on his way but no mention of Bandicoot and Hugo’s on the run. It would be class if Hugo and Martha came back for the funeral, I miss Martha and her simpleton ways.

As for cause of death she suffered an aneurysm and that was it. At first I thought it might have been the brain explosion that Hugo was talking about all those years ago.

Casey will be a relieved man now I’d imagine, he won’t have to worry about avoiding Gina anymore, she was always trying to get him to come back to school for his HSC.

Spencer and Maddy are having Chris sized problems. He keeps poking his nose in whenever they get some alone time. That chap can’t take a hint at all. They were about to get into the bone zone but he is interrupting their attempts, will they ever get to the next level?

Big meanies

Tuesday, May 21st, 2013

Ooh, the writers of Home and Away are toying with our emotions, and no mistake. The Family Palmer were as happy as possible, and Jett was being as cute as possible, so of course something had to go wrong. Gina had some class of aneurysm. You know things are bad when you start seeing yourself as an apparition.

At least she remembered one of her other sons before disaster struck. I was half-expecting her to answer the phone with a “Xavier who?”. Poor Bandicoot and Hugo don’t get a look in.

Marilyn foresaw it all, of course. She’ll be feeling mega-guilty for days now.

Dex felt bad for taking it to the next level in the hospital. He’s obviously never seen Grey’s Anatomy. April, spurred on by the positive-thinking-vibes of her recent girls’ night, confronted him and wished him luck in the future. He just looked confused.

 

Romeo, Romeo, speak up there Romeo

Thursday, April 18th, 2013

Mr. Smith has the oul’ caaaanca, but he won’t tell his wife. Well, she’ll deduce it soon enough from his withdrawn ways, and if she doesn’t, her dear daddio will let it slip. I only hope Romeo doesn’t tell Heath, who then tells Indi, as that would be a disaster of Home and Away proportions.

What a diagnosis though! Sid seems to be giving him a little hope with the promise of new treatments, but Romeo is riddled with it.

Gina and John told Jett they wanted to adopt him. Jett, the wee dote, went mad, saying he wasn’t good enough. He gave Gina a good dig by saying her sons wouldn’t like it. I’d say Gina thought, “who?”.

Sasha was so amazing and by-the-book in her petitioning for equal-rights uniforms that Gina is going to back her cause with the PNC. Sasha was delighted with this, but had no friends to tell, since she dissed Rosie. Bad move, Sash.

 

Wedding blues

Monday, February 4th, 2013

Harvey has no friends and no best man.  Not surprised, he’s boring, annoying and irritable.  No doubt he’ll end up asking Alf to do the honours.

Neil had taken Indi hostage but Sid came to the rescue, clamping Neil in an arm lock.  Neil claimed innocence when the cops turned up but they carted him away.  In typical YCPD fashion, they released him ten minutes later so he’s free to harass Lisa and Indi again. Sid put Lisa into a hotel but she subsequently rang Neil to tell him that she’s ready to come home.  What’s her problem?

Dex is not well.  The stress of the hostage situation got to him and he went to bed early, only to get up in a fever and collapse in the kitchen during the night.  His brain must still be recovering from the after effects of his injury, I hope he hasn’t suffered one of these.

Romeo, Romeo, how dumb are you Romeo?

Monday, November 19th, 2012

Romeo is a sap. He is risking his gammy knee to enter the Summer Bay Surf Carnival. I got the impression it was a small-town, local affair, not the bleedin’ OLYMPICS! In any case, he’s getting his steroids from new dad Heath. Oh, Bianca is going to love this!

Roo and Harvey are still contemplating their future. Roo is pretty annoyed, but it’s not as though she didn’t have her own dalliance. I want to pick a side, but I just don’t care enough.

Gina and John are still at odds, over nothing. Zzzzzzzz. At least Gina remembered she had sons in today’s episode.

False accusations

Tuesday, July 3rd, 2012

Future cop Xavier Austin has it in for Jet. He’s convinced that the cheeky scamp is to blame for all of the recent crimes in the bay like Indi’s wallet theft and Marilyn’s mugging. Sasha tried to let him know how it feels to be accused in the wrong but Xav isn’t budging. Who needs evidence when you’ve got gut instincts? I don’t remember a cop having such a bee in his bonnet since Constable Risotto was obsessed with the elder Austin bro, Hugo.

Alf is doing it tough. He’s not impressed with all of the bayside developments since he returned. Romeo’s marriage collapsed, Roo’s going out with a criminal and Marilyn got her bag snatched while walking home. Is this the bay he knows and loves? He gave Roo a serve over the phone for deserting her friends and family, but his call was interrupted by his health, Alf collapsed on the floor. I hope it’s not his dicky ticker again.
