A few wee thoughts

Monday, June 22nd, 2015

I am very slack on the H&A watching these days, but I did catch it today. It was a good one.

It went like this:

Irene: Come back and see us soon, Spencer.
Spencer: I will, yeah.

Adios Spencer

Then Roo and the Doc busted Alf out of hospital (am unsure why he’s there) and they all went to some class of military memorial service.

And Alf unwisely got his feet very wet spreading ashes in the sea. I’d say the Doc is v. unimpressed.

Alf and ashes

HSC hooning

Wednesday, October 22nd, 2014

In the space of one episode, Sasha went from failing her HSC to, um, not failing it. Zac was just acting the tough teacher for a while. Matt owned up to his amazing poetry skills, and all was well.

Oscar loves that oul’ gym. He can’t get enough. Or, maybe he can; 8 chest extensions had him staggering around the place like a drunk. He got pretty angry when Spencer and Maddie told him to ease off, look!

Oscar SMASH!

Oscar SMASH!

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.

Roo riddle

Wednesday, September 10th, 2014

Home and Away is like an episode of House at the moment; Roo picked up a virus somewhere on her travels, and it’s up to Alf and his merry bunch to find out why. According to Colleen, she left Vegas weeks ago. Our money is on a Martha-and-Hugo visit, maybe with some people smuggling thrown in, for good measure?

Darcy and Heath are on their best behaviour, ahead of his custody claim. But Sophie (dressed as a squaw) asked Heath for a meeting, to discuss school matters. What’s that about?

Ricky still wants a bub.

Spencer and Chris miraculously found Andy’s drugs, under his van. They should work for YCPD drugs squad.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Friday, August 15th, 2014

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.

The Braxtons always have stuff going on

Tuesday, July 8th, 2014

Jett told Denny “the Braxtons always have stuff going on”, he’s not wrong there. Casey confronted Cheryl about being a Barrett but he wasn’t too happy with her excuses so he told her to get stuffed, they’re done.  He left to spend some time alone but Brax found him and convinced him to come back for more Cheryl time.

Chris is still trying to avoid Denny since she dumped him.  He’s even calling in sick to the Diner. Irene copped on and sent Denny around to find him watching football instead of being properly sick. She’s sick of him being a dope and dodging her. Casey and her had a chat and bonded in the Diner, she’d be better off with Casey than Chris anyway.

Chris told Spencer that he regretted pushing her away and was going to try getting her back, even if it meant he’d have to tell everyone he’d been a total idiot. He just wanted their relationship to slow down, not stop.

Jett is annoyed that his boat is going to be expensive to fix up. John has given him a job in the surf club selling gelato but he’ll have to sell a lot to be able to afford getting his boat fixed. Maybe he should try to get a second job, like helping with Marilyn and John’s tour bus business. Whatever happened to that?  They haven’t mentioned it in months.
