What happened?

We were away – did Rachel leave?  What about Tony and Harry?  Arrrrrgggh.

Bay additions

Well, we ran a poll and it would seem that “the gays” would be the most welcome addition to Summer Bay.  There have been a few gay characters in the past, but they never stick around too long.

The next most popular social group was complete families.  They are very rare.  Rachel, Tony and Harry seem to be the only one at the moment.  Most households are made up of foster kids, various ex-derros and randomers coming in off the street.

In third position was vampires.  A few months ago I would have scoffed at this but I suppose imaginary friends a la Rabbit isn’t that far off.  I also suspect the V-man might have had something to do with the popularity of this choice.

Which of these would be a good addition to Summer Bay?

OK Rachel has lost it

Rachel is a pain in the hoop. You’d think she’d be delighted to have the negligence case sorted, but no, she just looked annoyed that she had nothing to moan about. Then Tony brought Harry to the diner to introduce him to Auntie Colleen, and Rachel nearly lost her reason. She’d want to watch herself or topless Tony (did you see that?) will be packing Harry up for good.

Martha is certainly acting like a happy spa these days. Better that than weepy and confused I suppose.

Those were crafty tactics by Morag, using Ross’s Alzheimer’s to try to get to the bottom of the baby mystery. But Charlie had a trick up her sleeve as well, saying her baby had died when in fact she was sitting opposite with a gaping mouth that would catch all the flies in Oz. I suppose it’s her cop training that allows her to think so quickly, but Jack would never have thought of that.

Poor Charlie all the same, it looks like her journey to the next level wasn’t as consensual as most.


Ooh now that was an episode. Rachel was in labour after her extra-long pregnancy (in Summer Bay time). Tony nearly didn’t make it, then he did, then the baby nearly didn’t make it, then he did.  To top it all off, the lady who just lost her baby in Rachel’s care is hanging around the hospital, poised to nick young Harry.  Me fingernails are bitten to stumps; it’s pure Hand that Rocked the Cradle.

I barely had time to exhale when Nicole found Belle taking handfuls of drugs. That’s how you take cancer drugs, apparently, by the handful. She thought Belle was up to her old prescription-drug-taking tricks, so Belle confessed that she was dying. Looks like she won’t be able to have those babies everyone keeps going on about. Give a girl a chance, she’s not even married yet!

Amanda’s coming back to town. That’s three harlots in close proximity. Martha and Charlie better keep their men close.
