Kidnap and torture

RTE player staff got a bit confused with Friday’s episode. This sounds like a plot from ten years ago.

Cody and his toughs turned up to get some info on Andy’s whereabouts. First they put the hurt on Casey at the gym but all that succeeded in doing was dragging Brax away from the house to rescue his bro. Little did he know that this was what they wanted all along. As soon as he left Braxton Towers for the gym, they went over to capture Josh and Evelyn, who they took to the farm for kidnap and interrogation. Kyle is going to be annoyed when he finds out, some kidnapping in the Bay that he wasn’t involved in. Where was Kyle anyway? The lads forced Josh to leave a message for Andy, telling him to come and rescue them. Will the selfish mongrel turn up? What if Oscar and Hannah show up first?

John got a surprise when Shandi turned up in the diner. They had a chat on the beach and seemed to have straightened things out a bit. Everything was going fine until he told her about Jett; she lost the plot when she heard he had a foster son. Things will be a bit bumpy for a while but she’ll be grand once she acclimatises to the Bayside way of life.

Stay out of our marriage

Casey felt sorry for Andy because he’s homeless and keeps making mistakes. He found him sleeping in the gym. He is going to lend money to him to get him off the hook with the drug dealers as he doesn’t want Josh getting bashed again, I reckon.

Denny and Casey had a romantic meal but had a bit of a row when he stood up for Andy Barrett while Denny thinks he’s nothing but trouble. Alf told her to talk to Casey and sort things out.

Leah is worried about Nate and told Sophie to stop leaning on him so heavily. Sophie pushed back and told her to mind her own business. That wasn’t enough though, she wants to move out and doesn’t feel happy living under the same roof as Leah. She seems to have Nate wrapped around her little finger. He went to the school and told her to mind her stay out of their marriage. Served.

Roo is still pressurising Marilyn over the wedding but they managed to sort it out and she asked Roo to be her bridesmaid. Hopefully that will be the end of the wedding hassling storyline for a while.

Brax and Ricky are going to try for a baby and got hot and steamy in the shower. Given the summer bay time warp, she’s probably pregnant by now and will be in labour by the end of the month.

Running out of second chances

Hannah is pretty slow on the uptake. She confronted Zac about the drugs at the farm and finally figured out that she was led up the garden path by Andy, he was to blame for the dope. Josh confronted his bro on the beach and gave him grief over his bashing. No doubt he’ll give him another chance, he always does. Maybe Hannah will give him another chance too, she usually does. Meanwhile Zac has moved out of the farm, he’s sick of Hannah and her ways.

Roo is trying to organise Marilyn’s wedding and going overboard. Poor Marilyn is getting stressed even though the wedding is months away. She even went to John to try and recruit his help, even though the two of them want a simple beach wedding.

Maddy and Spencer went for a game of pool while she tried to get in contact with Josh but there was no answer from him. Maddy has copped on that there is something up with her fella, that relationship won’t last too long in my opinion. She went to the farm to find him hanging out with Evelyn. She asked them what was happening between them but didn’t get any straight answers and stormed off.

Stewart-Barrett face-off

Too much madness in that episode:

  • Phoebe not confessing that all she is trying to do is get herself and Kyle a gaff
  • Roo not telling anyone why she went to South America and pretending it was because she needs her own space
  • Marilyn not wanting to move out of the caravan park and live with her fiancĂ© and pretendy son
  • Hannah doing some weeding on the farm! Ok, that’s normal, which is what makes it weird
  • Kyle doing some amazing jaw-jutting aka the most Kyle face ever
  • Andy Barrett being scared by Alf
Just jutting jaw
