Where’s Winston?

John and Marilyn’s burgeoning romance has been foiled twice; first by a rampaging Maddy, then by Banger going missing off the coast of cyclone-ridden China. Poor Roo is in bits over it.

Heath’s studies got off to a rocky start, but Dex is guiding him through the world of education. Heath is coming up with some amazing nerd-related insults, too.

Maddy and Josh zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz. What is the story with the new doc’s accent? Anyway, Josh did a runner from hospital.

New teacher is a super wagon, especially where Heath is concerned. Bianca is having none of it.

I want to be friends with Dex on Facebook

Dex and the Doc are engaged; he couldn’t contain himself and posted the news on Facebook before they had a chance to tell anyone in person. April wasn’t too pleased but got over it quickly enough. However, when Dr. Weird Accent wasn’t overly enthused about the subject of marriage, she questioned their decision a bit. Expect more will-they-won’t-they, until they finally do.

Josh is in a bad way in the hospital but he has Actual-Good-Nurse Hannah looking after him, and Ricky hovering nearby, so he should be right.

Spencer delivered Evelyn’s note to Oscar. In it, she warned Oscar not to let Spencer go on the retreat. She could have just told him that in person. Anyway, the discovery weekend is coming up, and Evelyn is guest of honour. Another cult-lady told her it was terrible, but wouldn’t divulge what went on. Evelyn is too young to have watched H&A in the good old cult days of Saul and Mumma Rose, so she doesn’t know creepy cults = teenage pregnancies. Here’s hoping Hannah, Zac and Oscar save the day (and buy her a new wardrobe).

Dr. Bradley’s Dastardly Break-Up

Evil Dr. Bradley heard April and Dex gossiping one time too many and now is demanding one of them leave Summer Bay General. Fairly sure she could be done for unfair dismissal there.

Bianca doesn’t want to be known as Mrs. Braxton. Really, she doesn’t want to be in the same category as Cheryl. She’ll come around, though; my money is on her getting a blood and sand tattoo by the end of the week.

No sign of Spencil Hill and his manic behaviour in that episode; he’s off the meds that no-one mentioned since he arrived. Maybe he was climbing Stewart’s Point blindfolded or running to The City, or being generally giddy off-camera.

Ricky coaxed Tamara into visiting Casey in hospital. She did some mighty flirting when she got there. If anyone can get Case into a wheelchair, it’s her.

Brax has inexplicably left the Bay for a while. We know where he’s really gone – on a nightclub tour of Ireland!

A pocket full of what-ifs and if-onlys

Oh my Gawdfather. Irene advised Marilyn to follow her heart (girlie) and tell John she fancies him. So, off Marilyn went, full of bravado, and asked John to be her partner…in a tourist bus business. Those tours will be some crack, and probably full of Irish people trying to get a look at Brax.

New Dr. Ms. Bradley hates April, and loves Dex. She’ll be trying to entice him back into the supply closet. April refused to work for 48 hours on the trot, and Bradley said “off you go love, but don’t bother your hoop coming back”. FIGHT!

Roo and Sally nearly put everyone in a coma fighting over who would stay in the house, and who in a van. Roo won. She can fairly pull a convincing argument out of her massive dress when she wants to.
