Comings and goings

Wednesday, September 18th, 2013

What would the story-writers do without a Braxton brother bust-up? Casey is still annoyed with Brax for getting Ricky to move in. Brax organised a gym session with Casey and got some face time in with him, much to his bro’s chagrin.

Everybody bar Brax seems to think Casey is coping ok with his new living arrangements. Little do they know, he’s secretly sitting at home in his van, drinking bourbon and listening to old phone messages from Tamara. The Braxtons all do a good line in narcissistic self-destruction.

Rosie is heading off. She wants to try and make sure all her mates are getting on when she goes. They staged a pally show for Rosie. They’re all going to miss her but they’ll have their hands full with their rowing. Sasha wants to bury the hatchet with Maddy but she has no interest. She’s got the hump because Spencer slept with Sasha and would never “go there” with her. She has copped onto the fact that they aren’t getting back together, should this not have been obvious a few months back? It’s interesting that “going there” is the new sex euphemism, nobody says “take it to the next level” now.

Time goes by pretty quick down Summer Bay way. For an example look no further than the return of Sally with little baby Pippa, all grown up. Is Sally back for good? Will she demote Bianca and take over running the school? Who could be lined up for a love interest for her? John Palmer, Sid and Casey are all single.

The wrong person is leaving

Tuesday, September 17th, 2013

It’s hard to get back into the swing of watching H&A every day; in the interim I’d forgotten that Rosie was pregnant, and Maddie was mental.

Handily, Rosie is leaving the Bay. The wardrobe department didn’t even have to worry about pregnancy outfits for her, and the props department didn’t have to root out a baby doll. Her dad is interested in her now, and she is happy to go off and live with him. Is this the same man who left her living alone, with only fish for company?

Maddie warned Sasha that Spencer won’t ever sleep with her.  I wouldn’t be so sure. He’s not gay (as Rosie affirmed), and Sasha is a laugh, as opposed to a moany moany whiner. Sounds like a good match to me.

John Palmer is broke. So broke, that he doesn’t even have a tenner. He’s hiding it from Jett, but won’t take money from Marilyn. Sure, she’s loaded with her triple income from hairdressing, waitressing in the diner, and the odd tarot reading. Hilariously, it was Gina’s funeral that bankrupted John. It must have been some send-off.

Sid is heading off to be a Flying Doctor. I am not impressed. He is a laugh and handy with a scalpel. Indi, Dex and Sasha are sticking around. This could all end in disaster.

Tamara is staying. Argh. She wants to stay with Kyle. Her parents should have taken them both.

In real life, apparently Sally and Leah were on This Morning this morning – did you see them?

Adam’s ultimatum

Tuesday, July 9th, 2013

Ads decided it was time he moved his plan forward, revealing his non dead status to Brax and the boys. He even went to jail to visit and threatened his girlfriend’s life if Brax didn’t cooperate. Heath is up to 90 with worry about Bianca, but he’s the one who figured out that Ricky is involved as Brax wasn’t having any of it. Brax went to jail and Casey lost it when Brax revealed that Tamara was indeed kidnapped. He’s worried Adam will kill her. Brax left jail and his old mate Adam got him on the blower to give him some good news. He’s decided to free one of his hostages but Brax has to decide who, his own girlfriend or Casey’s. Tough choice, I’d tell him to keep them both.

Bianca has her own worries with Rosie. Her foster Ma doesn’t know what to do now that Rosie is pregnant. She calmed down and decided that it would be best if Rosie moved out and got somewhere else to live, with people who have more expertise, but then had a change of heart after a baby scan at the hospital.

Jett is doing his best to get John and Marilyn back mates again. He told her that she had fallen over and hurt her head. His plan worked and John and Marilyn buried d’auld hatchet.

Change of Life

Monday, July 8th, 2013

Well, John is annoyed with Marilyn, so she asked Harvey to talk to him to see if he was coping ok, so Harvey told him that Roo is going through the menopause. Which she isn’t. John told Roo, who was not impressed. All these hurt feelings are causing awful confusion.

Holly is still cracking on to Zach. Very strange. Why would she be bothered? Anyway, he has told Nat, who advised him to tell Bianca. He won’t and then Holly will accuse him of molestation and then where will we all be? Hah?

Rosie hasn’t told her foster parents she’s up the duff. Has anyone told Mullins? Is he going to jail or anything, like? Or is it all ok once he has left town, like Ruby?

Heath and Brax now know that the joint Casey has allegedly robbed belongs to Adam. This is only confusing them further. Bianca got cross with Heath so he went home, instead of fending off crims. Will she be kidnap victim number 3?

Oi, you goose

Heath must have been reading Enid Blyton lately, if his choice of insult is anything to go by.

The Braxtons still have not figured out who set Casey up. Ricky confessed to Kyle that there’s a greater power at play, but didn’t tell him who it is. Kyle will tell Brax, but only at the very very last minute.

Rosie went to Principal Scott to say she wanted to leave school. OK, said Principal Scott. Sasha was aghast at this advice and rightly gave Bianca what-for. Bianca had another chat to Rosie and convinced her to stay in school. This would never have happened in Gina’s day.

John told Jett to stay well away from Casey, since he got caught up in the armed robbery investigation. Marilyn then backed up John’s advice with a friendly chat. Eh, hello Marilyn? A few months ago you were best buds with Danny THE DOG Braxton.

John and Jett got flowers for Marilyn, as a thank-you for her support. This convinced her that John is romantically interested, as Alf had previously told her. She is going to distance herself from the Palmer-Jameses.

Maddie is being the most annoying human in the universe by moaning that Spencer doesn’t like her anymore. I don’t like you anymore either, Maddie.

The Boize: Private Detective Agency

Wednesday, June 26th, 2013

That episode was way more crack.

Firstly, Casey is in a remand centre as a result of being arrested for armed robbery. Brax came to visit and give out about Casey giving a statement without their lawyer there. Neither of them know their lawyer’s name. Brax also assured Casey that The Boize are on the case. The Boize don’t seem to have names either, and if it was down to them, Case would be inside for manys a long year.

Rosie is not facing up to the realities of being a teenage mum. She is counting on Sasha, Spencer (who has only been her friend for a week) and Zach for support. Why she doesn’t talk to Natalie or Roo, who actually had a teenage pregnancy (and is still wearing the clothes), is beyond me.

A random bitchy character cropped up today – Holly. She is there to slag Rosie off in general. Summer Bay High is great for the odd wagon, remember that one that bullied Jett?

The episode ended with Brax sitting in what seemed to be an outside kitchen. Very weird. He was on the whiskey, which as everyone knows, is only for consumption in ditches. Ricky is being a great support to everyone. If I were her I’d scarper, especially as Brax has sworn to kill the dog that landed Casey in the clink again.

Paging Todd Smith

Detective Indi and her mate Chris are hunting down her husband. They called every hospital in the state looking for his medical records but no joy on that front. Chris reckons he knows of other ways to track him down. Maybe he has a phone number for Dog the bounty hunter or Reno Raines:

Rosie had a medical chat with Sid to go over her options. He laid them out to her and she is going to keep her baby. She never had much love from her own Ma so now she’s going to smother her own baby with love. Spencer and Sasha will be there to help but it’s going to be tough for the kid.

Maddie is losing the plot because she thinks Spencer is getting it on with Rosie. He can’t be bothered with her nonsense at the moment as he’s busy helping somebody with real problems. Why would he bother with her anymore given that she’s already dumped him twice?

Rosie duffed

Monday, June 17th, 2013

Poor Rosie now has a teenage pregnancy* to deal with. Sid set out the options and she has a big decision ahead of her. She has an ace support team in the form of Sasha, Spencer, Sid, Zac and now Natalie. I can’t see this staying secret for very long.

Maddie is put out at all the attention Spencer is paying Rosie. Obviously, he can’t reveal what’s going on, which is making her angrier. She presumed that Spence and Rosie are becoming an item, until Roo pointed out she was jumping the gun a bit. That criss-cross dress of Roo’s is particularly mad, even for her.

Natalie is put out too, as she was thwarted in her nosiness by a reactive and sensible Zac. She pointed out that he didn’t play by the school rules, but he retorted that she is just feeling left out. Haha, Natalie ya moan.

* Previous teenage pregnancies include: Roo, Sophie, Selina, Angel, Kirsty, Cassie. Previous abortions include…only Martha, I think?

Lachlan is the name of Mullens‘ mate. I don’t think I’ve ever heard that name outside of an Aussie soap. He was hanging around Rosie to make sure she was alright. He admitted he has texts from Mullens bragging about the rapes, and is willing to go to the cops. Meanwhile, Rosie was showing off her mega-bashing skills in ninja class.

John told Jett the adoption is back to square one. Jett had a fit, but will probably come around tomorrow as he is dead sound.

Darcy rang Heath saying that she and the granny had a blue. I think she’ll be moving in with Acting Principal Scott in no time.

Darcy nipple Rocco

Is Chris the Iago of the Bay? He’s managed to set Maddy and Spencer against each other, convincing each that the other person is mad with them. The gullible pair fell for his lies unsurprisingly. Roo said enough is enough and it was time to interfere; they set them up on a picnic so they could sort things out. They chatted and realised that Chris set them up, the fools. All sorted now anyway, well done Roo and Harvey. They told Chris to shove it until he sobbed about having too much expectations from the oldies, so Spencer told him to stick around, which he’s going to do. Can’t say I’m too happy about that, he’s a pretty annoying character.

Sasha is being a good mate to Rosie but it’s a tough burden for her young shoulders. She needs to see a counsellor but is unwilling to do so. April suggested that she talk to Bianca given that she was “attacked” before. Rosie’s solution was to get pizza and have a girls night, which isn’t quite the same thing but a start I suppose.

Heath is coming up with a new plan to get custody of Darcy. He needs to get a DNA test to show that he is the father but they need Connie to agree to it, which will be tough going. Heath is now great mates with Zac after they punched and made up on Friday. He’s the brains of the operation as he managed to convince Heath not to put in false allegations against Connie. Heath got a new tattoo that says “Darcy nipple Rocco”, but he’s going to leave his daughter be with Connie for now, she can come to look for him when she’s ready.
