I’m really happy, Nate

Monday, October 20th, 2014

Ah Sophie. You are screwed now. Don’t you know that pride comes before a fall, especially in Summer Bay? From here, there’s nowhere to go but down. Sure, as soon as you left the room, Dr. MegaMuscles was looking worried.

The principal and the doctor have a nice new gaff. Very mod-ren altogether.

Andy came back and the dealer dudes released Evie and Josh. Somehow, Andy paid off the lads AND Brax. That’ll come back to bite him. Hannah inexplicably still fancies him, even though he is a megadose, and got her niece kidnapped.

John and Marilyn told Jett about Shandi, then there was an estranged daughter, adopted son meet-up. That was grand. I’m waiting for the drama, lads.

 

 

Kidnap and torture

Saturday, October 18th, 2014

RTE player staff got a bit confused with Friday’s episode. This sounds like a plot from ten years ago.

Cody and his toughs turned up to get some info on Andy’s whereabouts. First they put the hurt on Casey at the gym but all that succeeded in doing was dragging Brax away from the house to rescue his bro. Little did he know that this was what they wanted all along. As soon as he left Braxton Towers for the gym, they went over to capture Josh and Evelyn, who they took to the farm for kidnap and interrogation. Kyle is going to be annoyed when he finds out, some kidnapping in the Bay that he wasn’t involved in. Where was Kyle anyway? The lads forced Josh to leave a message for Andy, telling him to come and rescue them. Will the selfish mongrel turn up? What if Oscar and Hannah show up first?

John got a surprise when Shandi turned up in the diner. They had a chat on the beach and seemed to have straightened things out a bit. Everything was going fine until he told her about Jett; she lost the plot when she heard he had a foster son. Things will be a bit bumpy for a while but she’ll be grand once she acclimatises to the Bayside way of life.

Andy goes AWOL

Friday, October 10th, 2014

Casey and Josh are looking for Andy, he’s gone missing and isn’t answering their calls. It turns out the dealers kidnapped him and gave him a good bashing. They dumped him on the side of the road where Hannah found him. When he was found he had a hoodie on but when he arrived into the hospital he was topless. Did Hannah take his clothes off en route? Maybe Nate prescribed a prolonged spell of toplessness for him.

Andy told Casey to get Josh out of town as the lads who bashed him are coming back for him and his bro. Even Hannah isn’t safe. Now that he’s in his hour of need will Brax have a change or heart and save him at the last minute?

Maddy started her new job in the gym but it’s not going quite as she planned. She has loads of new ideas for programs and classes but Casey isn’t interested as she isn’t a qualified instructor. Instead of all that he has cleaning the showers and the toilets. So glamourous, worth leaving school for.

John wanted to invite Xavier to the wedding, one small problem, he hasn’t told him that himself and Marilyn are engaged. He rang him with the good news but Xavi can’t make the wedding anyway, which is a pity. Marilyn invited Shandi, Josh’s daughter but she didn’t tell John, he’ll get a surprise when she shows up. Is it possible for John and Marilyn to go through an episode without some sort of miscommunication where one of them gets the wrong end of the stick?

Trouble ahoy

Monday, October 6th, 2014

Andy still owes his cash to the dealer. Casey asked Brax for help but got shot down. Casey gave Andy some cash from the gym to keep him going but will it be enough to keep Cody off his back and stop Josh from getting bashed again?

Maddy is having a great time jumping around on the beach and taking O-zone to the bone zone, far better than going to school. Roo sat her down and told her it wasn’t fair to use Oscar to get back at Josh and Evelyn, so she dumped him. Poor Oscar, back into the friend zone.

Sasha is having problems with her poetry. It turns out Matt is a poetic genius and submitted his poem with her name on it, unbeknownst to Sasha. She’ll get an A and then go mad when she finds out it is for his poem.  I reckon I could do better than Sasha’s effort.

Phoebe is a snitch while Maddy is a bitch
Sid misses his ditch and Cheryl is a witch
Brax says “Oi”, Harley’s a baby boy
When Andy shows his face, Hannah jumps for joy

Stay out of our marriage

Wednesday, October 1st, 2014

Casey felt sorry for Andy because he’s homeless and keeps making mistakes. He found him sleeping in the gym. He is going to lend money to him to get him off the hook with the drug dealers as he doesn’t want Josh getting bashed again, I reckon.

Denny and Casey had a romantic meal but had a bit of a row when he stood up for Andy Barrett while Denny thinks he’s nothing but trouble. Alf told her to talk to Casey and sort things out.

Leah is worried about Nate and told Sophie to stop leaning on him so heavily. Sophie pushed back and told her to mind her own business. That wasn’t enough though, she wants to move out and doesn’t feel happy living under the same roof as Leah. She seems to have Nate wrapped around her little finger. He went to the school and told her to mind her stay out of their marriage. Served.

Roo is still pressurising Marilyn over the wedding but they managed to sort it out and she asked Roo to be her bridesmaid. Hopefully that will be the end of the wedding hassling storyline for a while.

Brax and Ricky are going to try for a baby and got hot and steamy in the shower. Given the summer bay time warp, she’s probably pregnant by now and will be in labour by the end of the month.

Running out of second chances

Thursday, September 25th, 2014

Hannah is pretty slow on the uptake. She confronted Zac about the drugs at the farm and finally figured out that she was led up the garden path by Andy, he was to blame for the dope. Josh confronted his bro on the beach and gave him grief over his bashing. No doubt he’ll give him another chance, he always does. Maybe Hannah will give him another chance too, she usually does. Meanwhile Zac has moved out of the farm, he’s sick of Hannah and her ways.

Roo is trying to organise Marilyn’s wedding and going overboard. Poor Marilyn is getting stressed even though the wedding is months away. She even went to John to try and recruit his help, even though the two of them want a simple beach wedding.

Maddy and Spencer went for a game of pool while she tried to get in contact with Josh but there was no answer from him. Maddy has copped on that there is something up with her fella, that relationship won’t last too long in my opinion. She went to the farm to find him hanging out with Evelyn. She asked them what was happening between them but didn’t get any straight answers and stormed off.

Avoiding the Braxtonverse

Wednesday, September 17th, 2014

Phoebe wants to get a flat for herself and Kyle. She arranged it by getting Matt to pretend to be a reference, she didn’t want to have to rely on a Brax reference. Then she met the landlord on the sly without telling Kyle. He put 2+2 together when he saw them and thinks something is going on. Things will get worse when he finds out that she robbed money from the till for the deposit.

Josh has realised his relationship with Maddy is going nowhere, he must be sick of the moaning, which will be twice as bad now she has to to repeat the year in school. He met her on the pier to give her the heave-ho but before he could get the words out she was telling him that she is going to change and she needs him. He’ll have to put up with her for now so.

Alf and Roo had World War 3 in the kitchen while John, Marilyn and Jett tried to stay out of the way. Alf wasn’t impressed with her going to South America without telling him but she still hasn’t explained why she went there. Mysterious.

Cop caller

Friday, September 12th, 2014

Spencer is insistant that he’s going to call the cops, despite Josh having told him that Andy got rid of the drugs. Unbeknownst to Josh,  Andy had just hidden them on the farm rather than getting rid of them. The cops turned up to question Andy and took him in for questioning in front of Hannah, Josh and Evie. Josh saw Spencer on the beach and blamed him for Andy’s arrest and punched his lights out, even though Spencer denied calling the old bill in the first place.

Psychic twins alert! Ozone knew that Evie was upset by using his mental powers. Evie went to confront Zac over his plan to move out. He can’t handle Andy and Hannah so he wants to leave them to it but the twins want him to stay.

Darcy was missing so Heath and Brax went looking for her. She was afraid to go to the hospital with her sore arm. Some friend of Darcy’s went to the hospital once and didn’t get to return home so Darcy was afraid that the same thing might happen to her.

From one moaner to another

Tuesday, September 2nd, 2014

Darcy wants to spend her holidays with Heath so he is looking for a bigger gaff, he needs the space to put up both his children. Phoebe is unimpressed by Darcy’s ways, playing her guitar without permission. She wants to live with Kyle but not all of the brothers and children. Phoebe thinks that it would make more sense if they moved out and left the flat to the Braxton bros, which is fine but she neglected to tell Kyle about her decision.

John and Marilyn’s bus tours made a reappearance after a few months. While Marilyn was giving her commentary she spied Josh and Evelyn pashing at the bus stop. She wanted to tell Maddie but John told her to hold off. Instead of that they sat Josh down and told him to do the right thing by Maddie. Josh decided to go back to Evelyn and tell her he’s going to give it another try with Maddy so no more friendship for them either. Tough choice for him, moaner A or moaner B.

It was great to see a bit of equine action in the Bay, we haven’t had that in a while. It reminded me of when Kip Gamblin was in his pomp, galloping up and down the beach after Dani.

Matt is broke and is trying to get a job. He offered to do a free shift for Angelo’s and earned himself 50 dollars for his trouble but Kyle can’t afford to keep him on which is a problem as he already told Sasha he had a job and she was dead impressed with his get up and go. When he went to tell her about his lack of job, she cut him off before he could tell her, in typical Summer Bay style. Next episode she’ll find out the truth and go mad at him for not saying earlier. The episode closed with them about to get it on in the Diner when Irene came in and sprung them, caught rapid.

Eff you, doc

Monday, September 1st, 2014

Doctors are the most abused characters in Summer Bay. Any time someone’s in hospital, their relatives show up and slag off their medic’s professional skills until such time as the injured party miraculously recovers. Alf had a go at Dr. Accent today for being late for work. He was on call, but his phone was mysteriously on silent mode, something the good doc swore he never does. He’s blaming the ex-wife and no wonder, with her erstwhile unreliable druggy ways.

Roo is still unconscious, the victim of an as-yet-unnamed virus. Maddie is taking it hard, so Josh left her in the hospital to go off house riding with Evie. Unusually, this physical exertion didn’t end up with a topless youth in a hospital bed, but rather with an illicit smooch. What will Maddie say? Probably not too much, as she is leaning on Spencer for support and he is currently girlfriend-free. Handy.

Not a broken limb in sight

And the girlfriend worried sick in hospital...

Ricky wants a baby, and Brax doesn’t. He’s afraid the child will turn out to be a DOG like Danny, and Darryl himself apparently. Like all Brax decisions, this one is rooted in martyrdom.
