Eff you, doc

Doctors are the most abused characters in Summer Bay. Any time someone’s in hospital, their relatives show up and slag off their medic’s professional skills until such time as the injured party miraculously recovers. Alf had a go at Dr. Accent today for being late for work. He was on call, but his phone was mysteriously on silent mode, something the good doc swore he never does. He’s blaming the ex-wife and no wonder, with her erstwhile unreliable druggy ways.

Roo is still unconscious, the victim of an as-yet-unnamed virus. Maddie is taking it hard, so Josh left her in the hospital to go off house riding with Evie. Unusually, this physical exertion didn’t end up with a topless youth in a hospital bed, but rather with an illicit smooch. What will Maddie say? Probably not too much, as she is leaning on Spencer for support and he is currently girlfriend-free. Handy.

Ricky wants a baby, and Brax doesn’t. He’s afraid the child will turn out to be a DOG like Danny, and Darryl himself apparently. Like all Brax decisions, this one is rooted in martyrdom.

Doing it tough

Oi…we’re brothers

Poor oul’ Casey is doing it tough. He’s so cut up about not being a son of The Dog, that he literally cut himself up. He got the tattoo sliced right off his back. And him topless 50% of the time! Brax found him in a shivering heap and called Dr. Nate to the gym to tend to Braxton/Barrett Jr. For some mad reason, Casey wouldn’t go to hospital, so the doc fixed him up there and then. Brax was fierce ungrateful.

On a positive note, Case is still in touch with the Brit chick, so I’d say he’ll be heading that way shortly, ifthis is anything to go by (spoilers galore).

Oscar hasn’t owned up that he mowed Tamara down. Zac thinks he himself did it, and Tamara can’t remember at all. This is her second time with memory loss, she’s very fragile.

Chris got Irene out of the house and spruced up his bedroom in anticipation of taking it to the next level with Denny. No fairy lights though, so I’d say he’ll be unsuccessful. He was offering to put Irene up in a hotel to make up for the inconvenience, not sure how he’s affording that on a diner wage.

 

Harley, is it?

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.

P.S. DANNY WAS A DOG! Good woman Cheryl.

Johnny Barrett’s kid

So, it turns out that Josh’s da used to hang around with Danny “The Dog” Braxton. Maybe there’ll be a Big Boyz Bash-Up between the Braxtons and the Barretts.

Casey is getting on very well in the Casey Braxton Wing of Summer Bay General. His legs are recovering rapidly and things are looking up with Tamara. Plus Kyle has had his head turned by Evelyn From The Cult, so there’s no competition from him.

Evelyn and Ricky are best buds, so they are heading off to a mysterious location with Zac in an attempt to deprogramme Evelyn. Brax was bamboozled, but sure he just had a secretive trip of his own.

Oscar is moving in with Leah. But of course. The folk of Summer Bay live a stray. I wonder who’ll take Josh in?
