Well, that was amazing. In one episode, Connie came around, handed Darcy over to Heath, 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.
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.
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.
I have a question: why does Heath have the baby if the ma isn’t dead yet?
Harley started roaring when he met Cheryl, an appropriate response, some might say.
Matt was trying to be all things to his little sister while their da is in jail. Sasha has some form in this area, so she convinced Matt to hand the young one over to DOCS. In fairness to Matt, at least he didn’t make Ellie live in a toilet.
Leah is still in hospital but her liver is on the mend, so no donor for her. Jett is delira and Veej is nowhere to be seen.
Brax is up on murder charges so the Braxtons are getting scrubbed up to give him support. This courtroom is fairly lax, Cheryl and Josh’s mother shouted out their views during the hearing. Cheryl is happy to see that Casey and Tamara are back together as it means that she’s not with Kyle anymore. The Judge told them to come back for sentencing tomorrow but it doesn’t sound good given Brax has admitted to murder. Ricky and Cheryl are butting heads over who is the Braxton queen. Unbeknownst to them both, Josh’s bother is hanging around the bay with a gun, looking very mean. I’d say he means business.
The widow Walker is struggling to cope now that her hubby passed away. She’s in denial according to Dex and needs help with the gym. He failed to complete her class on the beach. Unfortunately for Indigo, Robyn was there too, poking her nose in and then called into the gym afterwards. She told Indi what she thought of her and got a slap in the face for her troubles. Indi is struggling to cope; where is Dr. Sid now when his daughter needs her?
Chris is getting it from all angles. Indi told him to keep his distance then Irene told him to go after her and console her. After that Robyn turned up and gave him a serve for his cowardly ways, not even telling her it was over between them. He went to the farm and talked to Indigo where she said she feels guilt over cheating on Romeo with Chris. How come she didn’t think of this months ago?
