Chris needs to work on his business sense. He accepted a scratch card from a customer in place of cash, Irene thinks he may have well asked for magic beans. He apologized to Irene and she gave him the scratch card back. He won a cruise but gave it to Irene.
Casey is worried about being home on his own after the drive by, he told all to Denny in the diner. Chris is still a bit paranoid about Denny being mates with Casey so that was why he wouldn’t go on the cruise. He’s going to have a free gaff at Irene’s place but will have to work extra shifts at the diner due to his boss’s holiday. As a result, Denny called over to keep Casey company with pizza in hand. Does anybody in that town ever get sick of pizza? He gave her the eye, definitely something cooking between them.
Jett can’t afford to pay Denny for her work on the boat due to his pay dispute with John. Luckily for him Alf was on hand to offer him a job in the bait shop. He’ll soon be a salty sea dog like Denny and Alf. Marilyn got John & Jett to sit down and discuss their issues with pay, she’d make a good shop steward.
Sasha is annoyed with Matt and they had a row in the diner about who did and didn’t get it. He told her that her face is a complete tool, which didn’t go down well. He stripped off on the beach in front of the whole town, which worked as an apology somehow.
Bianca and Heath are continuing their ridiculous break-up, and Bianca is angry with Irene for being sound to Heath. Cue the immortal line, “You’re like a daughter to me, love”. Irene has had so many faux-children at this stage, she’s like Captain Von Trapp.
Oscar confessed to the cops about the hit and run, but they don’t believe him! Gas. So Zac is still in the firing line. He’s taking a break from school while the drama plays out.
Tamara can still see, for the minute. She’s had a rough trot since she arrived in the Bay. I’d say she’s wishing her amnesia would come back.
Matt is being a martyr, living in a refuge and refusing to go back to school. Leah has her eye on him now though, so he’ll be grand altogether.
Phoebe’s dad is a big city lawyer and he decided to take a trip to the Bay to check up on his daughter. He wants to see how she’s getting on with her fella, given that he’s supporting her financially. He is very curious about Kyle and seemed none too impressed when he learned that he’s a Braxton. He is getting a detective to investigate Kyle, I’d say he’ll find some dirt there.
Bianca was upset to find Heath returned bringing Harley, unexpectedly. She is trying to adapt to their changing circumstances. He accused her of being selfish and not thinking about him and the baby. She still thinks he needs to decide between Harley and her. Leah reckons they’ll find a way through their difficulties as they love each other. They had a showdown on street and she told him it’s over, she can’t get over Harley. Bianca went crying to Irene and Heath was left holding the baby.
John is missing Jett and Marilyn is having a hard time cheering him up. She suggested a tarot reading or tea leaves to see what’s going on for him, they settled on a palm reading and they had a discussion about John’s wedding ring. He said he’s not ready to take it off yet and Marilyn is fine with that.
Braxton punch count: 0
Jett told Denny “the Braxtons always have stuff going on”, he’s not wrong there. Casey confronted Cheryl about being a Barrett but he wasn’t too happy with her excuses so he told her to get stuffed, they’re done. He left to spend some time alone but Brax found him and convinced him to come back for more Cheryl time.
Chris is still trying to avoid Denny since she dumped him. He’s even calling in sick to the Diner. Irene copped on and sent Denny around to find him watching football instead of being properly sick. She’s sick of him being a dope and dodging her. Casey and her had a chat and bonded in the Diner, she’d be better off with Casey than Chris anyway.
Chris told Spencer that he regretted pushing her away and was going to try getting her back, even if it meant he’d have to tell everyone he’d been a total idiot. He just wanted their relationship to slow down, not stop.
Jett is annoyed that his boat is going to be expensive to fix up. John has given him a job in the surf club selling gelato but he’ll have to sell a lot to be able to afford getting his boat fixed. Maybe he should try to get a second job, like helping with Marilyn and John’s tour bus business. Whatever happened to that? They haven’t mentioned it in months.
