Special cuddles

After breaking up with Ricky yesterday, Brax broke up with the boys today. He told them he’s getting transferred but won’t tell them where so they can’t visit, they’ll have to get on with their lives. He wants them to keep an eye on Ricky and help her out. She had planned to move out but the boys want her to stay, the baby won’t have a dad but will have 3 live-in uncles. Is that the end of Brax?  I’m surprised he didn’t go down in a blaze of gunfire, killed by Adam or a mate of Hammer.

Nate was planning to leave the Bay and head back to the city. Irene heard this and asked him to stay as they need a good doctor, which is very true given the amount of injuries and disasters that occur. He was flattered by her request and agreed to hang around, didn’t take much to change his mind.

Some new character appeared and stripped off in front of John. She’s called Phoebe and seems to be a bit of a wild child and she knows Kyle, she jumped into his arms, much to Tamara’s annoyance. It’s been a week or two since so broke up with Casey so it’s about time she got a new Braxton boyfriend, with Brax in prison and Heath married it’s going to have to be Kyle.

What happened to John and Marilyn’s bus tour business? They haven’t talked about that in a while. She managed to persuade him to help out at the music festival, can’t wait to see what outfit she wears to it. Even Heath has volunteered to help as it will keep Bianca happy and when she’s happy he gets “special cuddles”.

So…you’re offering me a transfer?

Dr. Accent has the most stilted phone manner. In any case, he was offered a transfer by “Dr. Simon”, just as he is falling for Ricky. She went to visit Brax, and he told her not to visit anymore. Go live your life, sez he. You would think that was the perfect moment for her to announce “Oi, I’m pregnant”, but no. Everyone in Summer Bay is a mega martyr. They are all terrified to burden anyone else with their problems.

So, what will happen next? One of the Boyz will tell Brax about Ricky’s predicament, he’ll have a change of heart, but it will be too late, as Ricky will have taken comfort in the arms of the good Doctor.

There was something about Maddie in that episode, but I can’t be sure what because zzzzzzzzzz…

Storylines in the Bay aren’t very gripping of late. The cult fizzled away to nothing, and even the fact that Harvey is MIA didn’t get much of a reaction. If he really is dead, that’s the worst end to a character I’ve seen. The cops didn’t even call around to inform Roo. Suspicious…

Braxton baby

After Ricky fainted, her stalker Kyle called the doc, who confronted her and confirmed his suspicions – she’s pregnant. To make doubly sure, she did a pregnancy test in Nate’s presence, hygienically leaving it on the kitchen table while it developed. Kyle walked in just as she made the announcement, but she’s sworn him to secrecy.

Leah had a face-off with The Sniper, calling her a coward and a bully. Will she change her ways now?

Andy is a total weirdo; he asked Josh not to go to school so he could hang around with him all day.

Alf and Jett engineered a fancy lunch for John and Marilyn. Awwwwwww.
