Bonkers Braxtons

There were many displays of mad Braxton behaviour in today’s episode:

  • Darcy broke her arm, so everyone went to the hospital. I broke my arm when I was 11 and there wasn’t an aunt or uncle in sight.
  • Heath didn’t explain the scenario properly, so Dr. Accent thinks he is bating lumps out of Darce.
  • Brax nearly bashed Casey because he himself doesn’t want to have a baby, thus proving to himself that he’s not a fit father, but in fact, A DOG.

Also:

  • The Braxtons were in hospital yet again. I wonder if a month goes by in Summer Bay without a Braxton injury?

Not much else happened, really. Alf wants to know why Chris called the cops on the Barretts. I’m sure he’ll get the full story shortly.

Eff you, doc

Doctors are the most abused characters in Summer Bay. Any time someone’s in hospital, their relatives show up and slag off their medic’s professional skills until such time as the injured party miraculously recovers. Alf had a go at Dr. Accent today for being late for work. He was on call, but his phone was mysteriously on silent mode, something the good doc swore he never does. He’s blaming the ex-wife and no wonder, with her erstwhile unreliable druggy ways.

Roo is still unconscious, the victim of an as-yet-unnamed virus. Maddie is taking it hard, so Josh left her in the hospital to go off house riding with Evie. Unusually, this physical exertion didn’t end up with a topless youth in a hospital bed, but rather with an illicit smooch. What will Maddie say? Probably not too much, as she is leaning on Spencer for support and he is currently girlfriend-free. Handy.

Ricky wants a baby, and Brax doesn’t. He’s afraid the child will turn out to be a DOG like Danny, and Darryl himself apparently. Like all Brax decisions, this one is rooted in martyrdom.

Romances rejigged

It’s all about the romances down Summer Bay way, look at all the recent changes:

  • Chris and Denny broke up
  • Casey and Denny are about to get together
  • Maddie and Josh are surely on the rocks
  • Evelyn will be there to pick up the pieces
  • Nate and Sophie won’t be together too long
  • Hannah might like a go of the doc, or Leah
  • Marilyn and John are trialling Alf’s gaff (and leaving John’s house empty, for some mad reason)

Casey got a punch to the face, courtesy of Chris – that’s one for the Braxton punch count. Denny is too much of a wet blanket for Chris anyhow.

BASH!
BASH!

Roo is back! It took her a while to get her massive dresses through customs, but she’s made it back to the bay safely. Oh my gawdfather!

John likes weak tea, the total weirdo.

King of the idiots

We had a strange experience watching todays episode on the RTE player. After a few minutes the picture went and we were left listening to it. It was like listening to the Archers on BBC radio 4.

Matt doesn’t want to be school captain with Sasha, he feels their relationship would suffer. Sash doesn’t agree and crowned him King of the idiots. Will he be more Solomon or Henry VIII? Leah tried to talk Matt into doing it with Sasha, he reckons she’s just being nosy, but she managed to talk him around. Matt and Sasha are going to become joint captains.

Darcy fancies Jett but he’s not interested which upset her, he friend zoned but she was hoping for more, the age gap was too severe according to him. Heath tried to get to the bottom of it with Jett but just ended up embarrassing Darcy.

Heath is struggling with raising Harley on his own. He almost starved to death with all of the baby chores and had to go to the Diner and order two burgers. Hungry Heath. He then left the baby with John and Marilyn while he headed off. They had a great time minding the baby, I thought Marilyn was going to suggest they have a child of their own.

Dr. Accent wants to get back together with Sophie, Leah doesn’t approve. Maybe there could be a future love interest between them?
