Grandpa Alf

Thursday, September 19th, 2013

Sally’s back, with little Pippa in tow; she thinks everything is “cool”. She also thinks Alf is her Grandpa. No, Pip, that’s Michael (is it?), and Flynn’s da, and probably Leah’s crazy angry dad as well.

Roo didn’t take kindly to Sally just showing up and acting like she owns the place, which she actually does. What a mad reaction. Anyway, they’re friends now.

Sally’s red dress was very nice indeed. Obviously the wardrobe department haven’t got their hands on her yet. She’ll be in a massive kaftan in no time.

Maddie is annoyed with Sasha for sleeping with Spencer, especially since Sasha experienced similar angst when Casey and Tamara got together (mucho teenage drama down Summer Bay way at the moment). Sasha’s reaction was to decide she’s leaving town with Flying Doctor Sid. I think she’ll come to her senses shortly.

Holly summoned Zac to the cliffs (Stewart’s Point?) and asked him why he wouldn’t sleep with her. She doesn’t seem to understand the teacher-student dynamic. She is threatening suicide if he doesn’t “go there”. I don’t really care because he is a big dum dum who didn’t even tell another adult that a student rang him in distress.

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?

They’ll always have Paris, or at least Yabbie Creek

Tuesday, September 10th, 2013

Today’s bayside business was all domestic. Things have calmed down since Adam got locked up. Isn’t it time they got a new psycho or villain around to stir things up?

April decided to treat Dex to a romantic day. She gave him snails for breakfast at the farm. It was a beautiful alfresco meal. Then she gave him a tango lesson, which was going well until a snake cut in and bit her on the leg. How rude, it didn’t even ask. She passed out due to the snake bite while waiting on the ambo to show up, so he had to drive her to the hospital himself. That would be ok but he has’t driven a car since his accident and his nerves are shot.

John sent Sid on a wild goose chase to see to Marilyn’s sickness. Only problem is that she’s not sick. She apologised to Sid in the diner and then John showed up so she had to fess up. There will be a reckoning there at some stage.

Zac was pumping iron in the gym and asked Indi if he should work on his bad boy image, to make him attractive like a Braxton. Could this be a new love interest for her now that he’s single?

There was some stuff with Heath, Darcy and Connie but I’m too bored to go into it.

Tea bags and tofu

Monday, July 29th, 2013

“I don’t want to marry you” was how April greeted Dexter’s pending proposal. She loves him too much to get married apparently. What’s the rush anyway, is what Indi and Sid were asking him, sure they have loads of time before the need to settle down.

Indi wishes she hadn’t gotten married to Romeo so young. She says it put extra pressure on their relationship and cost them a year, when they broke up, and she’d do anything to have that time back again. He’s still alive and out there now, I wonder if he’ll make a reappearance before he snuffs it? Maybe he’ll come back as a ghost and haunt the beach, riding phantom waves every morning.

Marilyn is moving out of John’s after Roo and Harvs staged an intervention. They told her that she was getting too close to John, again. There is no reason for her to still be living there, given that his back is better now. She moved back into the Caravan Park so they had better stock up on tea bags and tofu.

Casey is on the jar because Tamara left him. He should head off to Sid’s ditch and drink himself into next week, or head to Angelo’s and drink five shots like Brax did when Charlie died.

Bad Patient

Monday, July 15th, 2013

Mr. John Palmer is in hospital after what can only be described as a Rocky-style test of strength and stamina with Harvey. Jett is very annoyed as John isn’t looking after himself, one of their primary promises to each other after Gina died. Jett has now declared all promises null and void.

Dex had to give Mr. JP a sponge bath. However, later, he found out he passed his exams. You gotta take the rough with the smooth. Young Walker wasn’t impressed with his results, expecting them to be better. Sid pointed out that he’d had a brain injury, so basically, cop on.

Sasha and Spencer have eyes for each other, but due to a number of misunderstandings, they each think the other wants to be just friends. Indi is no longer playing the morose widow and is now matchmaker and schoolie-employer extraordinaire. She wanted someone to cover the gym while she is at Uni, so, eh, she hired Spencer, who will be at school during that time. WTF.



Tamara taken…

Tuesday, July 2nd, 2013

…and I wish they’d friggin’ keep her. Adam’s grand plan is coming to an end, still don’t know what the climax will be though. He keeps just saying BRAX WILL DIE. Yeah right, Ads, we all know Blood and Sand will prevail.

I don’t know what Ricky’s at either. She told Brax the boogeyman is making her do all the bad stuff. Another yeah right for you Ricky – why would you be afraid if you don’t know who’s threatening you? Ah Darryl, Darryl Braxton, open your eyes.

Ricky is joining the hostage hootenanny over at Ads’s house. He’s not letting any of those Sheilas go until Brax shows up to claim them. OI.

April got her dream placement, which sadly, is as Sid’s sidekick. Expect loads of doctor breaks in the ditch with bottles of whiskey, Ms. Scott. Dex is uneasy about the scenario as their relationship has been forged anew. I hope he can refrain from romancing while on duty.



Paging Todd Smith

Thursday, June 20th, 2013

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?

Adam lives!!

Thursday, June 6th, 2013

Ricky and Brax are getting along great, apart from the fact she won’t tell him anything about herself. Well now we know why…ADAM IS ALIVE and living in her gaff like some class of resurrected Batman baddie. There’s a plot afoot to bring down the Braxtons. Sure, isn’t there always?

Indi slept with Chris, for a laugh and to enjoy herself for once. I was sure Romeo would return to catch her in the act. Chris is mad into young Walker, but she’s not looking for anything serious.

Dex and April are back together (again). He spoke to Sid about it, saying they were like they had been before his accident. Yet again, no-one mentioned Ruby or has any anger towards her.
