Judgement day

Thursday, February 7th, 2013

Romeo and Dex are having a hard time, remembering which lies they told when trying to cover up his trip to the hospital. Pretty stupid move by them given that their respective girlfriends are far smarter than they are. Romeo is worried about Dex so decided to tail himself and April to the diner. The ladies are suss, especially Indi, Romeo can’t lie to save his life. Dex felt guilty and fessed up about the whole thing which April freaked at. His dishonesty and attempts to protect her has backfired in a big way.

Casey’s trial jury has reached a verdict. They pronounced him not guilty of murder, he got off on self defence, but he was found guilty of armed robbery. The judge gave him a good behaviour bond, so no jail for Casey. The Braxtons are over the moon, understandably, except for Kyle. He’s feeling dum about his da, the dog. Heath took him up to the graveyard. The two brothers bonded over the fact that their Dad didn’t give a damn about them. So far so good until Watson and Constable John turned up in Angelo’s to arrest Kyle for kidnapping Casey. Another trial?

Natalie, sporting a lovely waistcoat, is happy that the trial is over as she can get it back on with Brax now. Sasha is happy about her fella but she wants Tamara “the desert girl” to leave town, having a love rival on the scene doesn’t sit well with her.

Sid is worried about Lisa, she hasn’t been responding to his texts. He doesn’t know that she’s made up with her mental hubbie, Neil. Sid should go round there and check on her himself.

Changing times

Thursday, December 6th, 2012

Sasha is having a hard time adjusting to life without a crush on Casey. Sid told her to get on with things but she won’t listen, the poor love-sick puppy. Sid told his daughter about Casey’s mysterious half-brother Kyle, which he finds a bit far-fetched. Sasha disagreed and she’s right, long-lost relatives are commonplace in the bay. She went to visit Casey in hospital, told him how she feels, and Casey apologised for his behaviour.

Ma Braxton is hanging around, counselling Heath i.e. stirring things up. She stormed over to Irene’s to confront Bianca over the fact that she’s taking care of the funeral details. Bianca was lucky that Irene was in her corner and told Cheryl to sling her hook. I thought Heath and Brax were anti-police but Cheryl takes that to a whole new level, shouting abuse at the sergeant in the hospital which he took with good grace.

The cops are on Casey’s case. Brax was told that they need to find Kyle or else Casey will face further charges related to skipping his bail hearing. Now it’s time for Brax to get all the details on Kyle that he can and track him down. I am somewhat confused in relation to this, didn’t Brax leave Kyle out in the desert? He could be dead by now.

Where is Watson gone?  I miss her and Fitzy.

Dex is struggling to cope with the fact that he can’t help April given all the help she’s given him. Dex’s life has changed and it’s not going back to normal anytime soon. He ended the episode lying on the ground in a heap when April ran off.

RIP Rocco

Wednesday, December 5th, 2012

Poor Baby Rocco; he didn’t even live long enough to get his first tattoo. His parents are understandably shaken up; I predict a breakup and a return to bad-boy form for Heath.

Brax decided not to tell Casey about Rocco’s demise. He reckons Casey has plenty on his plate, he’s in hospital and the police want to arrest him for breaking bail. An unidentified cop (where’s Watson?) was very skeptical of Brax’s tale of kidnap and rescue. Natalie soon corroborated his story though. That was her last act of girlfriendliness, however, as she broke it off with Brax. Her reasons were that she didn’t want to deal with all the shootings, kidnappings, and general life in the Braxton clan. If only Charlie had been so sensible.

Gina is up in arms against Marilyn, for seducing John. The only thing is that Marilyn didn’t do it. She can’t help it if her bouffant hair and friendly ways attract the menfolk. Roo put Gina straight so hopefully she and Marilyn can be friends again.

As Alf pointed out, John has a lot to answer for when he returns to the Bay.

Sasha’s salvation

Monday, May 7th, 2012

Sasha’s trial continued but the young lady need fear not, Morag’s on the case.  She cross examined Watson, and got her to admit that she used to think that it was a case of accidental death, not murder but her bosses told her to upgrade the case to murder. What’s going on? The jury finds Sasha not guilty, but Stu’s dad swears revenge. Xavier threw her into the ocean to celebrate, he’s a simple kid. They declared their love for each other and all’s well in the bay.

Morag is my favourite character in the show by miles. I’d watch a courtroom drama programme based on her cases – “Justice by Bellingham”, it would be class.

Ruby is continuing her liaison with Steve the surfer dude, who smokes spliffs down the beach. Rube’s not that impressed and doesn’t dig stoners. I don’t see this relationship continuing long term, especially as she’s still holding a candle for Romeo. Steve is playing the decent bloke but slipped a massive package of grass into her baggage ahead of the flight. That’s going to be hard one to explain when they get caught.

Marilyn has a new client in her hairdressing salon. This woman has a teenage daughter called Lottie and an ex husband who is none other than Roo’s boyfriend Harvey. This could get awkward, especially as she asked Harvey to move out of his own house so she and her daughter can move in.

On trial

Sunday, May 6th, 2012

Sasha’s on trial. Morag’s her lawyer. Watson’s agin her. Sasha said Watson was nice to her down the station, but has now changed her tune. Xavier flinched at his mentor being slagged off.

April knows about Casey and Henri. Henri’s gonna quit teaching so the affair can continue. Casey was smiling like a simpleton when he heard.

Marilyn and Roo staged an intervention for John. He’s too slovenly for their tastes. He said Gina didn’t have a problem with it and threw out the dinner he’d prepared. Wasteful. Later, he overhead Roo telling Dumb Harvey that Gina was actually sick of John’s habits. Poor Mr. JP.

Veej is trying to join the River Boys. The younger members made him carry out some stupid pranks, until Brax, newly released from hospital, caught him and put a stop to it. Veej was arrested for vandalising a police car. Sergeant Watson put manners on him.

Casey hung around Henri’s back garden while she entertained a tipsy Gina. Henri could do with buying some thick curtains, if she’s to continue sleeping with a student.

Let’s die for love, you go first

Tuesday, April 24th, 2012

So Sasha’s break-in didn’t go off as planned. In fact, she drew Ma Stu’s attention to the incriminating inscription. Duh.

Ma Stu is poisoning Da Stu, on account of him being a basher. Now Dr. Sid knows, and reported her to Watson and her boys in blue. Oooh Ma Stu.

Indi and Romeo have made up despite their dalliances (or not) with the opposite sex. They admitted to each that their marriage was a mistake. Double Duh.

In real-life news, I am getting a “Let’s die for love, you go first” tattoo.

Morag in the house

Tuesday, March 27th, 2012

Morag is back in the bay, kicking ass and taking names.  Episodes with Morag in them are always better.  Hopefully the trial will take a while and she’ll stick around.  I’m surprised that Robert Robertson didn’t appear to carry out the initial investigation.

I felt sorry for Watson, having to deal with Morag. She’ll have her work cut out there.  Sash will be prime suspect in the trial and it’ll look like it’s going against her only for some vital evidence to come to light at the last minute, which will reveal her innocence.

What’s going to happen with Xavier in the cops academy?  He might have thrown his chances of a police career away for the sake of coming home to checking on Sasha.  Gina was freaked out and made him go to the cop shop and tell Watson that he’s being victimized in the Academy by Sergent Rafferty.  She did Xav a favour and got onto Rafferty for him, who agreed to let Xavier back into cop school. I reckon that investigations and conviction rates will go up tenfold now that Charlie isn’t the boss, Watson will do a far better job.

Karaoke night

Friday, March 16th, 2012

In a strange move, the River Boys and the Rockstar held a karaoke night at Angelo’s. Every good singer in the cast did a number. Colleen sang too, but the show went to a break! I bet she sang “Gravel Pit”. One two, one two!

Bianca told April about the pregnancy, April told Heath, Heath asked Bianca if it was his. How pregnant is Bianca? I hope Sid does his inspection soon so we can find out.

SERGEANT Watson is after Xavier and Dexter for the Stu murder. Sasha is looking very worried.

Sid’s worst day ever

Thursday, February 16th, 2012

Poor Sid. There was a hostage situation in the hospital, nudey pics of his daughter were flying around by text, Sasha confronted Stu, got threatened by his da, Sid threatened to end the da, Sid got fired and later dumped.

The only people who had a worse day were Ruby and Brax.

If Brax has a thing for cops, he could approach Watson. Just sayin’.
