Bye bye Big Daddy

Phoebe’s da tried to cross the Braxtons, and paid the price big-style. He called the cops to check out the Boyz, but they found nothing and Pheebs was mega-peeved. She said good luck, Da, and don’t let the door hit you on the arse on the way out.

John and Marilyn are obsessed with Jett. He’s off at the Gaeltacht or something.

Maddie did a great workout at Alf’s command.

Does Ricky have a job? Professional troubleshooter?

What is Smooth Harve at?


Plus, they’re off to get Brax – yessss.


Hit the frog and toad

There were plenty of rowing romancers in that episode. Spencer and Sasha fell out over her blindfold kiss with Chris, then Marilyn and John fell out over the value of a kiss. Marilyn won that one when she pashed Dr. Nate/Accent/Cheekbones in the diner; John was none too impressed. Anyway, everyone was friends again by the credits, phew!

Ricky and Dr. Nate are doing mighty flirting. He might have to leave town, which is causing her some distress. She had another baby/medical emergency, so he’ll have to stick around now.

How ridiculous is it that Brax still doesn’t know Ricky is pregnant? How come none of the Boyz have let it slip? This is very un-Summer-Bay-like.

So…you’re offering me a transfer?

Dr. Accent has the most stilted phone manner. In any case, he was offered a transfer by “Dr. Simon”, just as he is falling for Ricky. She went to visit Brax, and he told her not to visit anymore. Go live your life, sez he. You would think that was the perfect moment for her to announce “Oi, I’m pregnant”, but no. Everyone in Summer Bay is a mega martyr. They are all terrified to burden anyone else with their problems.

So, what will happen next? One of the Boyz will tell Brax about Ricky’s predicament, he’ll have a change of heart, but it will be too late, as Ricky will have taken comfort in the arms of the good Doctor.

There was something about Maddie in that episode, but I can’t be sure what because zzzzzzzzzz…

Storylines in the Bay aren’t very gripping of late. The cult fizzled away to nothing, and even the fact that Harvey is MIA didn’t get much of a reaction. If he really is dead, that’s the worst end to a character I’ve seen. The cops didn’t even call around to inform Roo. Suspicious…
