Home and Away is like an episode of House at the moment; Roo picked up a virus somewhere on her travels, and it’s up to Alf and his merry bunch to find out why. According to Colleen, she left Vegas weeks ago. Our money is on a Martha-and-Hugo visit, maybe with some people smuggling thrown in, for good measure?
Darcy and Heath are on their best behaviour, ahead of his custody claim. But Sophie (dressed as a squaw) asked Heath for a meeting, to discuss school matters. What’s that about?
Ricky still wants a bub.
Spencer and Chris miraculously found Andy’s drugs, under his van. They should work for YCPD drugs squad.
Boom! That’s the sound of Summer Bay reacting to the Sniper blowing up the hospital.
Bianca and Heath were trapped inside with Nate once the roof collapsed. Bianca had pressure on the brain, what Hugo might refer to as a brain explosion.
Nate said there is nothing for it, I’ll have to drill into her skull to relieve the pressure; she needed that like she needed a hole in the head. Alf and the orange jumpsuit lads turned up in time to get her out but it’s touch and go whether she’ll be ok. I love when Alf gets his emergency gear on, you know it’s business time when that happens.
The twins and Kyle are still trapped in the container without oxygen, food or water. Unbeknownst to them and their captors, Ethan was critically injured in the explosion and he won’t be back anytime soon. He croaked it and now nobody knows where the missing children and Kyle are. Will Zac be able to save them before they resort to eating each other?
Bianca, in a surprising move, asked Ricky to be her bridesmaid rather than her own sister April. She rang Brax to try to get through to Heath but Brax couldn’t find him, he’d gone off with the barmaid. Cue a mad scramble by the Braxton bros to find the buck who bolted. Kyle and Casey woke up topless on a rooftop bed with a pineapple. On the plus side, they seem to have buried the hatchet to some degree.
Brax finally found the groom in the sea on his own. He told Brax about how “he stuffed up”, not the first time that’s happened. Cue a lecture and the realisation that he’s going to have to tell his fiancé about his fling.
Chris is back and creating friction. He insulted Sasha on the beach and Indi wasn’t too impressed with his smooth talk either. He was a loose end so he ended up hanging out on the beach with Maddy. He is up to something, trying to split up Spencer and Sasha maybe? Chris threw Sasha into the water and she lost it. He said he’s going to make it up to her by cooking breakfast for them on the farm.
Irene is still under stress at work. She is due another health scare I reckon. She went around to Leah’s for a chat and found out that Leah is quitting the diner. What will she do next? A social media startup in the Bay? A debt collection business? Maybe she’ll go into organised crime and get into the people smuggling business, there must be a gap in the market since Hugo left town.
It was Gina’s funeral and there was a great turn-out. Marilyn wore a fascinator, Maddie got the violin involved, there were Austin roses, and two brothers missing. Officer Xavier Austin stepped up to the plate and eulogised.
Casey didn’t bother his hoop going, as Indi would be too cross. Indi didn’t go either, bit sly considering all the help John gave her in setting up the gym. She is angry that she isn’t getting a chance to say goodbye to Romeo.
Jett is getting free dinners at Angelo’s for the foreseeable future. Good man Brax. Sid also cheered the Palmers up a bit by reminding them that Gina saved them, even as she was dying. Small comfort all the same.
