Drop the bomb

Thursday, May 29th, 2014

Casey is struggling to adjust after Brax dropped the Barrett bombshell. He didn’t want to discuss it with Brax, he just walked off for a mope in the gym on his own. Andy told Casey he quit the gym job, then told Josh to stay away from his long lost bro. Brax came into the gym to confront Casey and they went for a drink in Angelo’s. Casey lost it when he found out that everyone in the Bay knew about his parentage before he did and the restaurant descended into a mass brawl, it was like a scene from Roadhouse.

Sasha met Matt at the diner and told him that she’s leaving the bay for a while. She’s off to visit Sid and Indi in Broken Hill. She gave Matt a pep talk about his future but he has no plans, just hanging around, waiting to see if a job lands in his lap.

Phoebe is trying to get Kyle to sack her. Why doesn’t she just quit? Very strange behaviour. It worked in the end, kind of, she quit at the same time as he fired her so they both got what they wanted.

Wedding mayhem

Thursday, February 13th, 2014

Everyone loves a wedding, except the bride in this case:

Dex and April's wedding

Nothing was going quite right on the day. The cake was wrong, golf themed instead of wedding, Dex’s shirt got ruined and the flowers didn’t arrive. But it didn’t matter as the couple were so in love and nothing else mattered. Or so we thought.

April had last minute panic as poor Dex was left at the altar. Will Bianca and Tamara be able to persuade her that it’s all ok? Will she leg it to Paris on her own leaving him stranded with no wife and no career? April would want to watch it, if she gets to stressed she might regret it.

Dramatic deficit

Tuesday, February 4th, 2014

Once you get used to kidnappings, death threats and murder attempts it’s pretty hard to get used to quiet nights in with a pizza and a movie. This is the problem facing Casey and Tamara. They had a chat about their situation and discussed their scenario.  How will they get over the lack of drama? Maybe they should invent a stalker or an assassin to put a bit of spark back into their relationship.

I’m a bit worried about Jett’s diet, it seems to consist solely of chip sandwiches and pizza, that can’t be too healthy for a growing boy. Nina was hiding out in his place but John found them and he told her parents. He was due to bring her back to boarding school but he fell asleep and the kids were gone when he woke up, they’ve done a runner.

April and Dex are heading to Paris. She’s got a place in the “University of Paris” and they’re going to move over together. Once they go and Indi leaves on her travels it will mean Sasha is the only Walker left in the bay, she’ll be oh so lonely.

Hitting the books

Monday, January 27th, 2014

Heath is having problems studying. Casey shamed him into doing a bit of work and he managed to pass his first module. Tamara discussed his eduction with her fella and he has made a big life decision, he’s going to study for his HSE, again. I’ve lost count of the number of times he’s tried, let’s hope it goes better this time. The Braxtons are all getting educated, maybe Brax will study computer science while he’s doing time.

Jett is missing Nina and wants to enrol in her posh school. John is against the idea as he can’t afford the fees and doesn’t want to disrupt Jett’s schooling. John and Marilyn are romancing each other, which cheers Jett up no end.

Still no sign of the missing Winston and Banger but Roo is no widow according to herself. Everybody is walking on eggshells around her and it’s driving her mad.

Romeo is gone and Indi needs time to say goodbye to him, which is bad news for Chris. She had a dream of being on the beach and ghost Romeo turned up to see her. It’s a recurring dream and she thinks she’ll have to leave the Bay so that she can leave her dead husband behind.

Brother Hubbard cafe on Dublin’s Capel Street had a tip war based on Aussie soaps today, I think we all know which option won there.

Moping and moaning

Monday, January 20th, 2014

Maddy got into a row with Roo over Josh. The cops, namely a baldy cop called John, came looking for Maddy about the fire in the Mangrove River school, she doesn’t have an alibi. Roo doesn’t want Maddy to see Josh anymore so she went to see him in hospital and told him to steer clear. He took her advice and broke up with Maddy when she came to visit. Maddy isn’t very lucky in love, I’d say we’re in for another protracted period of moping and moaning.

Chris and Indi got rid of Robyn the psycho, she left town on the bus. They were very forgiving and aw her off with a “no hard feelings” goodbye. I think they were too easy on her. Indi is still a bit sad about Romeo, which is to be expected.

Jett gave John grief for not moving on with his life and telling Marilyn how he feels. John eventually got up the courage and said it to Marilyn, about effin time lads. Jett himself is doing it tough since Nina left town. Maybe he’ll fall for one of the new troubled teens from Mangrove River.

Endings and engagements

Tuesday, January 14th, 2014

Indi took possession of Romeo’s ashes, and found a letter for her amongst his stuff. He wanted his ashes sprinkled in the sea so they all went to the cliff top and threw him into the surf. I half expected them to feature a ghost surfer in the distance, going out to sea. No sign of Dr. Sid to help his daughter through this difficult period.

Leah spent the day looking after Oscar, he’s lonely without Evelyn. She is having a great time in her crazy cult and their newest recruit is Spencer. He thinks that brand of “self-improvement” will help him to deal with his illness without medication, I doubt it will be that simple.

Hannah started work in the hospital. April was there at work but left to be with Dex and Indi. The memorial service made him think about popping the question again and this time she said yes. I knew it was only a matter of time with those kids.

Day in court

Thursday, December 12th, 2013

Brax is up on murder charges so the Braxtons are getting scrubbed up to give him support. This courtroom is fairly lax, Cheryl and Josh’s mother shouted out their views during the hearing. Cheryl is happy to see that Casey and Tamara are back together as it means that she’s not with Kyle anymore. The Judge told them to come back for sentencing tomorrow but it doesn’t sound good given Brax has admitted to murder. Ricky and Cheryl are butting heads over who is the Braxton queen. Unbeknownst to them both, Josh’s bother is hanging around the bay with a gun, looking very mean. I’d say he means business.

The widow Walker is struggling to cope now that her hubby passed away. She’s in denial according to Dex and needs help with the gym. He failed to complete her class on the beach. Unfortunately for Indigo, Robyn was there too, poking her nose in and then called into the gym afterwards. She told Indi what she thought of her and got a slap in the face for her troubles.  Indi is struggling to cope; where is Dr. Sid now when his daughter needs her?

Chris is getting it from all angles. Indi told him to keep his distance then Irene told him to go after her and console her. After that Robyn turned up and gave him a serve for his cowardly ways, not even telling her it was over between them. He went to the farm and talked to Indigo where she said she feels guilt over cheating on Romeo with Chris. How come she didn’t think of this months ago?

Fly in the ointment

Wednesday, November 27th, 2013

Everything is going well between Indigo and Chris, so in typical Summer Bay style, his ex, Robyn, turned up.  Chris thought they were broken up but she thinks they are still going strong.  He needs to let her down gently so that he get back to Indi, in her head, they had something special, but it was only a 3 day fling to him.  But he couldn’t summon up the courage to tell her the truth about Indi and gave Robyn a hug, which Indi oversaw.  He’s in trouble now.

Zac and Ricky are trying to get through to Evelyn in the bush.  It’s the twins birthday but a childhood memory wasn’t the way she remembered and it turns out that Zac wasn’t the monster she thought he was.  She decided to leave her father with the cult and stay with Hannah and her bro.

Leah is having a hard time keeping the truth about Oscar and Hannah being runaways from the cult.  VJ is happy that he has somebody to beat in his video games.  One of the creepy cult members showed up in the Bay looking for Zac.  Unfortunately VJ let slip that they’re living in his house so he called over and isn’t leaving until the twins return, then he’s going to take them back to their Dad.

Living in the now

Tuesday, October 29th, 2013

Dexter has gone to flying doctors training for a few days, leaving the Walker sisters at home to talk about Indi and Chris. He wants a serious relationship with Indigo but she’s not sure. Sasha thinks she should steer clear. Then herself and Spencer recruited Chris to help them break into Bianca’s office and remove the wedding bunting they had put up. It took them ages to clean it up and they ended up scrapping over Chris and Indi. Sort it out lads, it’s getting boring.

Sally is worried about Pippa 2 so Roo took her to the gym. I don’t know how Roo manages to go to the gym, it’s hard to do exercise when you’re wearing a massive dress. They gave Indi some love advice while they were there. Roo gave Sally the low-down on Romeo while they were there, been a while since anybody mentioned him. Is he dead yet? Nobody seems to know. Indi made her mind up after the chat and decided that she’s going to give it a proper go with Chris.

John is going ahead with his bus tour business. Harvey wants a job but there isn’t enough work for that yet. He could be on the dole for a while yet.

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.
