Bruised egos

Wednesday, August 27th, 2014

Roo returned but wasn’t in too much of a hurry to say why she came back early. Maybe Coleen was getting on her nerves? Roo gave Marilyn a crystal ball which prompted her to say she might start doing readings again. How many businesses is she going to start and then drop? What happened to the tour bus.

Maddie happy to have Roo back. She told Roo things are better than ever, she even asked to move into a van with him, bizarre behaviour.

Kyle wants Phoebe to snap out of her funk so he offered her an amazing gig, a musical residency at Angelo’s. She is so down about her dog Dad, even that opportunity of a lifetime failed to cheer her up. Maybe she’s afraid she’s part canine? To clear the air she’s going to sell everything her Dad ever gave her. Garage sale time.

Casey is nursing a bruised jaw and ego. Chris punched him and then Denny wouldn’t answer his call. Kyle went after Casey to stop him going after Chris, but it’s Denny he’s looking for. He went to the farm for answers but all he got was a bag of frozen peas to put on his bruise, but they didn’t last, she asked for them back when she kicked him out. Kyle told him to cool it and give her space. In the meantime she called over to Chris’s where he was laying low, for fear of Braxton retaliation. She asked him to give it another go but he wasn’t interested. So now that she’s free and single, herself and Casey are going to give it a go, taking things slowly, they’ll make a nice couple.

Romances rejigged

Tuesday, August 26th, 2014

It’s all about the romances down Summer Bay way, look at all the recent changes:

  • Chris and Denny broke up
  • Casey and Denny are about to get together
  • Maddie and Josh are surely on the rocks
  • Evelyn will be there to pick up the pieces
  • Nate and Sophie won’t be together too long
  • Hannah might like a go of the doc, or Leah
  • Marilyn and John are trialling Alf’s gaff (and leaving John’s house empty, for some mad reason)

Casey got a punch to the face, courtesy of Chris – that’s one for the Braxton punch count. Denny is too much of a wet blanket for Chris anyhow.

BASH!

BASH!

Roo is back! It took her a while to get her massive dresses through customs, but she’s made it back to the bay safely. Oh my gawdfather!

John likes weak tea, the total weirdo.

Family meeting

Monday, August 18th, 2014

Brax called a family meeting and then proceeded to tell the gang that there was no point to the meeting, he just wanted to see them all and get a progress report. It wasn’t quite what they were all expecting, these things normally involve assassination attempts or somebody being sent to jail. Brax is worried about the boys and wants to have more input from them, some involvement in their lives. He even volunteered to babysit Harley. They had a massive barbie in the garden, looked like a great time, complete with crap music and burnt snags. Brax seemed disappointed that there’s no drama with his bros. Be careful what you wish for Darryl.

Phoebe is still worried about the shooting as she doesn’t know that her Dad was behind it. Brax told Kyle to fess up and tell her the truth which he had to do eventually, she was suitably gob smacked when she found out her Dad is a dog.

Denny is having second thoughts about Chris. He pales in comparison to Casey in her eyes. Hannah asked her whats going on and she told her that she’s going off him, she finds him a bit annoying now. Chris tried to call over to Denny’s but she was having a girl’s night.

Spencer confronted Evelyn about her having the hots for Josh but she wasn’t impressed. Maddie copped on too and told Josh so it won’t be long before Evelyn finds out that everyone else knows. Cue Josh calling over and telling her he knows but she denied it and said it was all in Spencer’s head.

Ok, close your textbooks.

Sophie is a renegade teacher; she had her art class ignore the prescribed texts, and instead talked about art theory. I’m sure the kids think she is very cool now.

Eh, what age is yer man on the right? He looks like he should have a wife, a job, and two kids.

Evie and Josh swapped self-portrait assignments and did lovely pictures of one another. Hannah and Spencer are wise to them. It’ll be no time before they are a couple. Maddie won’t be impressed, she’ll do yet another megasulk.

Brax is annoyed that he has no problems to solve. OIIIIIIIII!

Friendzone

Thursday, August 14th, 2014

John had an elaborate proposal plan for Marilyn, he gave her a metal detector and let her find it in the front garden. It went down a treat, I’d say they’ll be happy now.

Denny wasn’t too happy with Casey telling her about his feelings. She thought they were mates but he wanted more. They’re going to try to keep things on a friendship basis or so they say. How long will they stay in the friendzone before Chris gets his p45? About 2 episodes I reckon.

Speaking of the friendzone, Evelyn and Spencer had been concentrating on their exams so had no time for romance. Once they finished them, Spence wanted to get back in the groove but Evelyn was having none of it. She has her eye on some other buchaill, Josh perhaps?

Himself and Maddie seem to be drifting apart because she is class at exams and studying but he finds it tough. When she finished her exam paper she exclaimed “I’m finished” to the class and skipped out of the room. I would have dumped her for that if I were him.

P-A-R-T-A-Y

Tuesday, July 29th, 2014

Maddie decided everyone at school was sad over Tamara leaving (nonsense), so she decided to throw a party. After Alf told her the caravan park was out-of-bounds, Marilyn offered up the surf club as a venue. Josh and Evelyn both declined the invite out of moodiness. Bleedin’ dopes.

Bianca offered to look after Harley until the Braxton shooter was brought to justice. As soon as she was left alone with the bub, though, she nearly had a panic attack. She is the most highly-strung school principal of all-time. She also randomly skips work to mind children. Anyway, all was well as soon as she picked up the baby, who was wearing an amazing hat.

Zac lash

No doubt Josh is regretting his “mature” decision to tell Alf he and Maddie were sleeping together. He had to attend TWO interventions in the caravan park, in which Marilyn said sex and Alf nearly said condom. Scarleh for him. The upshot of these excruciating chats is that Josh is allowed to stay over, once everyone is “responsible”. Good euphemism.

Ricky and Brax still weren’t sure whether they were back together, despite having slept together. Luckily, Nate is still hanging around Ricky like a bad smell, which forced her hand. She told Brax she loved him and told Nate to eff off.

Oscar fancies Maddie, and is looking for an opportunity to get rid of that pesky virginity. Zac was slagging him over it, so Hannah decided to be an unbelievable wagon and call him a drunk. The only option was to get a bottle of grog and go on the batter in the principal’s office. Zac has some notions – what’s wrong with a ditch?

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.

Look what the cat dragged in

Tuesday, May 27th, 2014

Spencer found Matt sleeping on the doorstep of Irene’s house so he passed him onto Sasha. She got him showered, dressed and took him to Leah’s. She followed the Summer Bay tradition of taking him in without a second thought. Matt and Sasha celebrated with a pash on the beach. Spencer won’t be happy when he finds out.

Maddy let slip to Josh that she kissed Spencer on the sly. He stormed off in a huff which left Maddie depressed. Oscar swooped in to pick up the pieces and provide a shoulder for her to cry on.  Maybe he’ll be able to take advantage if they break up?

Nate was annoyed when he found out Ricky isn’t seeing Brax as he assumed she broke up with him to be with Brax.  Now Ricky is on the market again could there be room for a reconciliation?  Leah seems to think so.

Banger bows out

Tuesday, April 8th, 2014

Harvey said a very long goodbye to the Bay today. They all got over it and let him leave, even Spencer who was having a hard time adjusting to his impending departure. As a consequence, Maddy was spending a lot of time with Spencer, causing Josh to go green with jealousy. He gave her an ultimatum but she opted to stick with Spencer et al, so that’s it, they’re done.

Chris is going to try and become a matchmaker for Irene. He wants Johnny boy Palmer to help him, but John is reluctant. I’m inclined to agree with John, arranged dates don’t usually end well in the Bay.

Sasha and Tamara are at loggerheads over the school captaincy. Tamara is counting on the Mangrove River vote but Andy told her that she’s barking up the wrong tree there, those students won’t bother voting. Tamara made friends with Phoebe over a beer in Angelo’s, then had a go at Sasha who was there for dinner. Tamara may have the superior policies but Sasha has the advantage of promising free ice cream, that could clinch her the election.
