One last surf

One last surf

Well, that was amazing. In one episode, Connie came around, handed Darcy over to ┬áHeath, Bianca showed up, and they all disappeared off to The City, never to be seen again. It was like an Irish wake in Famine times. “When will I see you again?”, “Ah sure, I don’t know”. I’m fairly sure The City is not that far away.

Ricky showed her true colours as a Home and Away aficionado when she used a theme song lyric to berate Connie, “you know they belong together”. Her guilt trip worked wonders, and Connie agreed that the Heathcliff Braxton family would be better as one household.

The Boyz went for ONE LAST SURF. Kyle was hanging back, leaving the original crew to it, until Brax muttered “You coming or what?”. They all had a topless pow-wow on the beach, then Brax, Heath and Casey went for a surf. Why did Kyle get topless if he wasn’t even going to swim? And it looked like The Boyz were only body-boarding anyway, he could’ve managed that.

Go in the effing sea, at least

Back at the gaff, Phoebe stood up to Chezza, who just shrugged. Harley wore an amazing hat for his final scenes.

Now that the Braxton numbers have been decimated, Brax has reluctantly agreed to have a baby with Ricky. He needs more troops to continue his reign of the Bay. He’ll be the next Alfred Stewart in no time.

Banger come back

Where is Harvey? Winston has turned up safe and sound. Roo got word that the search for Husband Harvey had been called off, which rendered her more even shrill and bad-tempered. She thinks he is still out there, but the solemn faces on Alf, Marilyn and John suggest they think otherwise.

If Banger has truly banged his last, it’s a bit of a poor exit for the man. He deserves better than a Beth-style death. We’d put so much effort into liking him, that this news is coming as a bit of a blow. Such is the Summer Bay Curse; no adult relationship lasts too long.

Romeo the ultimate dickhead

Romeo, in an unbelievably selfish move, left the Bay with Liam Murphy. He said goodbye to Indi in a letter, but neglected to mention that he had cancer. So, she was totally bamboozled. Sid was caught in the middle, and eventually told his daughter the truth. Good acting, poor Indi.

Ricky and Cheryl were stirring things up ’round the Braxtons, mentioning Adam to Bianca, and slagging off Kyle.

Brax gave Kyle a great lecture, about not letting Casey down. He’s a good man for a telling-off. So, Kyle apologised to Casey.

Heath, in an extremely unusual move, gave his ma a lecture over being a wagon to Bianca. It was Braxton Bollocking day.

We reckon Ricky is on a revenge mission to the Bay.

Spanner in the works

The gym had a very successful launch, and Romeo and Indi decided to christen it, by taking it to the next level there and then. They were interrupted by Sid, however. Scarleh for them. Crucially, Romeo also started complaining of a pain in his shoulder. “Come on down the hospital, Romeo, mate”, arsa Sid.

Once down the hospo, Sid said the damage was just muscular. Deadly, thought Romeo. Later that evening, though, Sid informed Romeo that the radiologist spied something on his x-ray and that he better get it checked out. Uh-oh, radiologist? Here be a cancer storyline?

Who was the last person in the Bay to have cancer? I was going to say Belle, but of course Irene had a run-in with the Big C lately. Boo cancer.

Casey has an opportunity to avoid going back to jail, if he’ll just tell The Super who stabbed him. Young Braxton doesn’t want to leave Jamie in an even worse position though. No-0ne else can understand this.

Maddie had a strop with Roo, out of the blue. Then she returned her violin to Alf. Cop on, girlie.
