Stewart-Barrett face-off

Too much madness in that episode:

  • Phoebe not confessing that all she is trying to do is get herself and Kyle a gaff
  • Roo not telling anyone why she went to South America and pretending it was because she needs her own space
  • Marilyn not wanting to move out of the caravan park and live with her fianc√© and pretendy son
  • Hannah doing some weeding on the farm! Ok, that’s normal, which is what makes it weird
  • Kyle doing some amazing jaw-jutting aka the most Kyle face ever
  • Andy Barrett being scared by Alf
Just jutting jaw
Just jutting jaw

Avoiding the Braxtonverse

Phoebe wants to get a flat for herself and Kyle. She arranged it by getting Matt to pretend to be a reference, she didn’t want to have to rely on a Brax reference. Then she met the landlord on the sly without telling Kyle. He put 2+2 together when he saw them and thinks something is going on. Things will get worse when he finds out that she robbed money from the till for the deposit.

Josh has realised his relationship with Maddy is going nowhere, he must be sick of the moaning, which will be twice as bad now she has to to repeat the year in school. He met her on the pier to give her the heave-ho but before he could get the words out she was telling him that she is going to change and she needs him. He’ll have to put up with her for now so.

Alf and Roo had World War 3 in the kitchen while John, Marilyn and Jett tried to stay out of the way. Alf wasn’t impressed with her going to South America without telling him but she still hasn’t explained why she went there. Mysterious.

Bonkers Braxtons

There were many displays of mad Braxton behaviour in today’s episode:

  • Darcy broke her arm, so everyone went to the hospital. I broke my arm when I was 11 and there wasn’t an aunt or uncle in sight.
  • Heath didn’t explain the scenario properly, so Dr. Accent thinks he is bating lumps out of Darce.
  • Brax nearly bashed Casey because he himself doesn’t want to have a baby, thus proving to himself that he’s not a fit father, but in fact, A DOG.

Also:

  • The Braxtons were in hospital yet again. I wonder if a month goes by in Summer Bay without a Braxton injury?

Not much else happened, really. Alf wants to know why Chris called the cops on the Barretts. I’m sure he’ll get the full story shortly.

Roo riddle

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.
