Misplaced faith

Thursday, November 6th, 2014

Chris is continuing his one man demolition job on Irene’s gaff. Not only did he wreck the oven, he then destroyed all of her cupboards and presses trying to remodel the kitchen. Irene is a saint and said she will let him continue with the project and update it whatever way he wants to. She said she has complete faith him, that’s asking for trouble.

Marilyn tarrot

Marilyn used the dark arts to look into Phoebe’s future and found out that there is big success on the horizon for her. Kyle won’t be happy if it means more gigs out of town, he gets jealous very quickly. Marilyn is lucky that she lives in Summer Bay, not Salem or she’d but up on trial for witchcraft.

Leah was manipulated into kissing Zac by Sasha and Matt. Seriously, she’s a grown woman, it shouldn’t have been that easy to convince her to do it. Anyway, she fessed up to him that she is into him when they got back home. Is he fully over Hannah now and ready for a new relationship?

A chance for redemption

Brax leaning

While engaging in some classic leaning, Brax told Casey about himself and Ricky trying for a baby. Casey managed to persuade him to help Andy, he needs the support that the Braxton boys gave each other if he’s to turn his life around. Brax held out a hand of friendship to Andy but got it thrown back in his face. Andy got a job offer from Cody and lads who were threatening him last week, they were impressed with his drug selling abilities.

Jett was worried that he might get displaced now that John’s real child has arrived in town. John reassured him that this wasn’t a problem but as they were arguing in the garden they ended up soaking Marilyn with a garden hose, such laughs.

Oscar is still on his crazy fitness buzz. After his community service he got dropped off in the bush so he could run home. This wasn’t the best plan as he was on his own on a country path with the sun beating down. He got heat stroke and passed out. Will Zac and Hannah be able to find him in time?

Safe house

Monday, October 13th, 2014

Brax just cannot help himself. If there is a problem to be fixed, he can’t ignore it for long. He gave Andy money from Angelo’s, as a loan, to pay off the dealers. Andy disappeared and now there are angry dealers and an angry Kyle to put up with. The newest Braxton is not impressed that his managerial status was undermined.

We haven’t actually seen the dealers. It would be great if they were really posh, or old women, or something unexpected like that. Or if Morag was their ringleader, or Colleen. Awesome.

Ricky was winning in the mad fashion stakes today. Behold:

Marilyn finally confessed that she’s invited Shandi to the wedding. John didn’t mind too much, but now he’ll have to tell Jett he has a daughter. Eh, surely that came up in the adoption process, no?

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?

New baddie alert

Tuesday, October 7th, 2014

Oh-ho, it looks like Sophie will be the Bay’s newest baddie. She doesn’t like Leah being friendly to her bloke, so she is spreading rumours about her fragile state of mind, and asked Leah if she needed to cut back on her work hours. Sly and conniving, so it is.

FAKE CONCERN!!!

FAKE CONCERN!!!

YOU WAGON

YOU WAGON

Nina was back in the Bay for a visit and Jett was thrilled. Marilyn nearly lost her mind over the cuteness of it all. She created a romantic dinner for two out the back of the caravan park. Jett was sad over Nina heading off again, so Marilyn’s invited her to the WEDDING OF THE YEAR.

Sasha is raging at Matt for writing his deadly poems and showing her up. She hasn’t owned up yet though, I notice.

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.

Stewart-Barrett face-off

Thursday, September 18th, 2014

Too much madness in that episode:

  • Phoebe not confessing that all she is trying to do is get herself and Kyle a gaff
  • Roo not telling anyone why she went to South America and pretending it was because she needs her own space
  • Marilyn not wanting to move out of the caravan park and live with her fiancé and pretendy son
  • Hannah doing some weeding on the farm! Ok, that’s normal, which is what makes it weird
  • Kyle doing some amazing jaw-jutting aka the most Kyle face ever
  • Andy Barrett being scared by Alf
Just jutting jaw

Just jutting jaw

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.

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.
