So you think you’re tough?

Thursday, November 8th, 2012

Harvey is hanging around the city with his ex and Lottie almost caught them in bed. She told Harvey to give his fiance a ring and they sorted things out over the phone and he headed back to the bay. If only Harvey had half the sense of his daughter. Will Harvey tell Roo that he slept with Mel? Probably not but she’ll find out somehow.

Jet apologised to Veej for being a bully and a dick, which Veej accepted without any qualms, they’re best mates now. Veej doesn’t have any time for Liam and is annoyed with him practicing guitar in the house. Jet is impressed with the fact that Veej is living with a real life (ex) rock star, a lot more impressed than Jet is.

Case is staying up all night doing weights, his guns are going to be massive, which will be useful in prison. Brax is worried about him, but Casey says he’s looking after things – I know who I believe. Brax was so worried he decided to kick Casey’s door in and found all his stuff piled up in the corner, which is no way to live your life according to Brax. Casey flipped and managed to floor Brax with one punch. Hardy man.

Sad Case

Wednesday, October 31st, 2012

Casey is down in the dumps. His symptoms include dropping out of school (again), wrecking his room and moping on the beach on his own. He’s sure he’s going to jail for putting down his old man, Danny the dog. Not even Sasha coming for a chat on the moonlight sands was enough to lighten his mood.

Natalie is driven to distraction in her Braxton stalking and snooping. I think she’s got some sort of homing signal, she can always find Casey or Brax and pry them for feelings. What’ll she do if Casey gets locked up? She’ll have to start taking an interest in Heath.

Gina was feeling great either until Jet turned up with his dad. Looks like he’s not going to WA after all. They’re all one big happy family again. Poor Gina, you’d swear she didn’t have any sons of her own. Anyone heard from Bandicoot recently?

Two little mates

Friday, October 19th, 2012

Romeo’s dreams are falling apart in front of his eyes. He went for a walk on the beach with his “best mate” only to be told that he’s carrying on with his ex-wife. Romeo can’t stand the sight of Liam now and is moving out of Leah’s house to show his displeasure. Maybe he can follow Ruby’s road to ruin and go sulk in a van for a while before sabotaging Liam’s motorbike.

Tim’s new business venture means that Roo has landed a dream job for herself. The downside is that she’ll have to commute to the city. Harvey is less than impressed about his fiance spending time with her ex. Harvey isn’t very secure in his relationship but Roo wouldn’t do the dirt, would she?

Richard wants Jet, but Jet doesn’t want to go to crappy Western Australia. When his Dad turned up at the gaff looking to collect his nipper, Jet had a change of heart and left with his old man. That’s another former crook kid reformed by the redemptive airs of the bay. He can leave town with his head held high. Gina will be heart-broken now, she’ll have to find another pet project.

Father vs son

Monday, October 15th, 2012

Casey has been snared rapid. Himself and Brax thought they had pulled the wool over Danny’s eyes but no, there’s life in the old dog yet. He was wise to their ruse and knew that Casey wasn’t genuine in his expressed desire to pull a robbery and go on a road trip with Danny. So he dragged Casey into the robbery and tried to force him to shoot the only witness. Casey refused but Danny was having none of it. Just as Brax and Natalie arrived outside, a gunshot rang out, but who did it hit?

Gina was having a great birthday lunch with John and Jet in Angelo’s, the young lad even bought her a book as a present. All rosy in the garden, or was it? Next minute their bliss was shattered when a knock at the door informed them that Jet’s father, Richard, has appealed for full custody of his son. I’m sure Jet will decide to turn him down and stay in the Bay.

Dexter does it

Thursday, July 19th, 2012

Well, Dexter and April are buds again, and next-level buds at that. Glory be.

Ruby is persisting with her pregnancy facade, only now she has stopped taking the pill. Then she coerced Romeo into boldness, even though he confessed having doubts about the relationship. Poor dopey Romeo.

Jet is still a little brat; in this episode he punched Veej and shoved Gina. Now JP is on his tail.

I wish Veej had more of his dad’s attributes. Instead, he seems to be the school punching bag. Vinnie wouldn’t stand for that.

Edit: Forgot to mention Indi’s creepy portfolio photographer who told her she wasn’t hot enough to get modelling jobs while keeping her clothes on! His standards for female beauty must be sky-high.

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.

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.

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?

And…she’s gone

Monday, June 25th, 2012

Well, that’s that. For a moment, there was a glimmer of hope that Colleen might not jet off to Las Vegas, but in the end, she went. John Palmer made sure to get a squeeze before she departed. Alf sent an email that tugged at the heartstrings terribly. Even Morag showed up. Farewell, Miss Groper! We’ll never see her likes again.


Things in the Bay continued as normal after Mrs. Smart left. Jet is still nicking stuff, i.e. Indi’s purse, Gina is still on the case and Xavier had a go as well. All is not well in the Jet household. Poor oul’ Ma Jet is on the way out, by the look of her.

Heath snuck in April’s bedroom window again, but not for a bit of boldness this time. Instead, he built the cot that Bianca had bought for the bub. Ahhh. Breaking, entering and flat-packing. He may hold his horses though, because Bianca went to the hospital in a panic shortly afterwards. Uh-oh. As Kane once said, “If anything happens to the bay-bee…..”!

Mr. Townsend is still getting a rise out of poor Casey. Gina’s well and truly on the Braxton side though. I love Mr. Townsend. He only has one mood, and here it is:

Mr. Townsend on a good day
