Grandpa Alf

Sally’s back, with little Pippa in tow; she thinks everything is “cool”. She also thinks Alf is her Grandpa. No, Pip, that’s Michael (is it?), and Flynn’s da, and probably Leah’s crazy angry dad as well.

Roo didn’t take kindly to Sally just showing up and acting like she owns the place, which she actually does. What a mad reaction. Anyway, they’re friends now.

Sally’s red dress was very nice indeed. Obviously the wardrobe department haven’t got their hands on her yet. She’ll be in a massive kaftan in no time.

Maddie is annoyed with Sasha for sleeping with Spencer, especially since Sasha experienced similar angst when Casey and Tamara got together (mucho teenage drama down Summer Bay way at the moment). Sasha’s reaction was to decide she’s leaving town with Flying Doctor Sid. I think she’ll come to her senses shortly.

Holly summoned Zac to the cliffs (Stewart’s Point?) and asked him why he wouldn’t sleep with her. She doesn’t seem to understand the teacher-student dynamic. She is threatening suicide if he doesn’t “go there”. I don’t really care because he is a big dum dum who didn’t even tell another adult that a student rang him in distress.

Casey conflicted

Casey is having a hard time adjusting to Brax going out with Ricky, given that she is partly responsible for ruining his life. John took him for a walk and said he’d be there for Casey if he needs a mate to talk to, which was good of him. Brax is perturbed that Casey took the decision on his own without consulting with his older bro. Casey then took the step of moving out. He is ok with their relationship but he won’t live under the same roof as them.

Kyle and Casey are still at odds over Tamara. What happens when she gets her memory back? He called her parents to see if they could talk some sense into their daughter and they asked her if she would like to move home with them. She’s thinking about it, but she doesn’t want to leave Kyle.

The coppers think that Zac or Kyle stored drugs in Leah’s house but we all know it was Holly, the Bay’s youngest psycho. When Heath heard he used it as an opportunity to have a go at Kyle. Kyle is likely to get sacked if he’s up on drug charges according to Bianca. Heath did some investigating with “the Boyz” and one of them said they had sold her the drugs, but they won’t tell the cops, obviously. Holly said she’d tell the cops what she did, if he agrees to spend the night with her.

The Grand Finale

Adam’s criminal warehouse was like something out of Homeland. Brax ran in blind to rescue Ricky, even though he knew it was a trap. Adam was waiting for him and shot him in the belly, the low-down dirty rat. “Now I get to watch you die”, Adam said. I wasn’t sure if I was watching the wrong show, maybe this was Love/Hate and not Home and Away.

Cue Brax’s dream, him standing on top of a cliff, looking out to sea. It reminded me of Alf going on his spirit walk as the Aboriginal man years ago after an operation. Ricky called an ambulance for Brax but he was too busy zoning out and dying to pay attention to what was happening in the real world.

They managed to get him to the hospital and April and Dr Sid got to work on him. Heath turned up at the hospital to give Ricky a serve then went off at Dex and April for not being able to predict the future. Ricky got interviewed by the baldy nameless cop and dobbed on her bro. Casey and Kyle should be in the clear now.

Adam managed to walk into the hospital during the night and knocked Heath out with a wrench. Adam was about to kill Brax when ghost Charlie appeared in his dream. She told him to wake up, his eyelids fluttered open for a second, but it didn’t matter. Adam injected some stuff into the patient causing him to go into arrest. Dex disturbed Adam and Heath tackled him, but it could be too late for Darryl. Only ghost Charlie can save him now I reckon.

Zac is in trouble over Holly’s sex attack claims which appeared in the local news. He’s been suspended from school and had a rock thrown through his window. Maddie confronted Holly again but she remains unrepentant over her treatment of Zac.

I loved Alf’s “no flamin worries” and Jett’s “strewth” in yesterday’s episode. He’s developing into a proper Aussie bloke under the old man’s influence.

Nothing but a dobber

Maddy felt bad about the trouble that Zac has gotten into. She ratted Holly out to Bianca. The principal came to her senses and realised Holly was full of crap. She confronted her student but Holly is admitting not defeat yet and maintains her innocence. It’ll have to be referred to the department and Zac is on a suspension. Holly went to confront Maddy on the beach and denounced her as a dobber. This drove Maddy to tears, the poor little rat.

“You are a dead-set idiot” is what Heath said to Kyle in the hospital. How right he was when the coppers turned up and arrested Kyle. Kyle hung around at Tamara’s bedside as she is disorientated and has amnesia. She can’t remember Casey or anything that happened since she first appeared in the show. I’d say she’ll fall for Kyle before she recovers her memory. It’s quite similar to the storyline when Leah fell for Peter Baker only for him to fall into a coma, years ago. The writers love an amnesia storyline.

Brax is worried that Ricky may have come a cropper since Tamara was the one that was freed. Heath doesn’t really understand why Brax gives a damn about her, then Brax revealed that he might love her. If only he could have fallen for somebody who wasn’t the sister of his nemesis.
