Special cuddles

After breaking up with Ricky yesterday, Brax broke up with the boys today. He told them he’s getting transferred but won’t tell them where so they can’t visit, they’ll have to get on with their lives. He wants them to keep an eye on Ricky and help her out. She had planned to move out but the boys want her to stay, the baby won’t have a dad but will have 3 live-in uncles. Is that the end of Brax?  I’m surprised he didn’t go down in a blaze of gunfire, killed by Adam or a mate of Hammer.

Nate was planning to leave the Bay and head back to the city. Irene heard this and asked him to stay as they need a good doctor, which is very true given the amount of injuries and disasters that occur. He was flattered by her request and agreed to hang around, didn’t take much to change his mind.

Some new character appeared and stripped off in front of John. She’s called Phoebe and seems to be a bit of a wild child and she knows Kyle, she jumped into his arms, much to Tamara’s annoyance. It’s been a week or two since so broke up with Casey so it’s about time she got a new Braxton boyfriend, with Brax in prison and Heath married it’s going to have to be Kyle.

What happened to John and Marilyn’s bus tour business? They haven’t talked about that in a while. She managed to persuade him to help out at the music festival, can’t wait to see what outfit she wears to it. Even Heath has volunteered to help as it will keep Bianca happy and when she’s happy he gets “special cuddles”.

Courtney

Courtney is an amazing rubbish baddie, cast in the Summer Bay mould that also begot Johnny and Hammer. Casey has a vendetta against him, and got stabbed in a big bad-boy bash-up. Casey just has no luck.

Tilda told Gina that she bullied Jett because she fancies him. Gina must have spent the morning in a ditch, on the batter, because she believed Tilda. Poor form, Gina.

Indi and Romeo’s gym was about to open, and they were juggling meetings like old pros. But when Sid called around for a look, the fuses blew and the power went out. Time to get a sparky in. John Palmer had a go, and almost set the place on fire. The power in Angelo’s was also affected; Liam couldn’t even open the till to nick some cash.

Brax spilled his guts to Natalie, and she knocked him back. Form an orderly queue, ladies.

Dodgy deals

What a mad episode. Brax took Heath’s place in Adam’s deal. Adam told Brax he’d end up dead. Heath sat at home until Bianca mentioned that maybe he should help Brax out. Heath is a dum dum.

Brax got the stuff from the least threatening baddie I’ve seen since the halcyon days of “Hammer”. It turns out the “stuff” was shipping times. Boring. Heath arrived just in time to accost a henchman who was getting ready to shoot Brax, and the Baddie escaped.

Now, if I were a River Boy, I’d be heading back to the beach at this stage. But Brax went to confront Adam instead. There was some very emotional I-thought-we-were-mates dialogue, before the Baddie returned, and ran over Adam, who died.

NOW I’d be heading home (after ringing the cops, and the ambos, of course). Brax, however, told Heath to look after the business, and Casey, and headed off into the sunset. Wait ’till Casey hears. It’ll probably put him right off his HSC.

In other Bay news, Harvey had sense and called the cops to tell them about Maddie (who has suspected meningitis) and Spencer. Roo went bananas. She is being very unreasonable.

Finally, Celia is still mad for the pokies, or the gee gees, or gambling in general. It won’t be long until Alf wises up to her.

Casey vs angry teacher

Bianca is struggling to cope with the fact that her marriage is over. She says she can’t bring go through the pregnancy and motherhood on her own. If only there were a single bloke around who’d be interested in providing a shoulder for her to cry on. I was under the impression that Liam had left town when he walked off but no, there he was moping on the beach as was Bianca. They had a talk but both seem certain it’s over. Maybe Liam will go back on the dope or the sauce, or maybe he’ll take over as the new manager of Angelo’s courtesy of a fast contract from Brax. Heath was none too impressed.

Speaking of drugs, Hayley is a pretty crap drug addict if she can’t even score some. She tried to get Heath to get some for her in exchange for legal fees. Heath displayed intelligence for once in his life and refused. Maybe he is growing up and copping on?

Sasha is giving Xavier the cold shoulder since their break up. She’s not returning his calls and is avoiding him in the town. Xavier is on the right track with his suspicions over Sasha’s mental state, he just needs to convince somebody else of his theory.

Casey has made an enemy in the newly appeared teacher in the school, who is very angry about Casey succeeding with Henri where he failed. As a result, he’s a frustrated  man and is taking it out on Casey. Case might have to resort to setting Brax on him. This new teacher is hilarious, almost as laughable as the evil Hammer.
