Where there’s smoke…

Bianca’s memory loss is becoming dangerous. Heath and Bianca fell asleep after she started cooking, she forgot to keep an eye on it due to her amnesia. Ricky & Casey came along and rescued them from the flames. Casey tried to help by getting Nate to check Bianca out, which prompted a Heath explosion, he went mad because he wants to deal with his wife’s illness on his own. Bianca was having lunch in the diner when a mobile phone ring tone reminded her of the bomb blast, maybe she’ll be cured now?

The mystery of the stolen bracelet is only partially solved. Jett and Veej know that Marilyn stole the money from Alf and that Roo got the blame but neither Roo nor Alf know yet, this won’t last long. Jett is holding her to ransom with a bit of blackmail. He is getting her to do the punishment chores that John is giving him, she’s been waxing boards and washing jeeps. Jett isn’t going to get away with this for long, even VJ told him to give her a rest but as soon as they decided to do the right thing they were sprung by Alf and John. When they confronted Marilyn she confessed everything about her theft of the money in 1989. Alf was fine about it and forgave Marilyn but Jett is in big trouble with John.

Josh & Andy are broke. They owe rent on the caravan and only have 100 dollars left. They had to share a toasted sambo down the diner for their dinner. Casey offered Andy an advance on his wages but he flipped out at the offer. Josh wants to drop out of school so that he can get a job but Andy went back to Casey and secured an advance. All’s well that ends well. Casey gave Andy the cash from his own wallet, is there no cash register in the gym?

Party time

Jett and Veej came up with an amazing party plan, have it in Irene’s while she is away. Chris and Spencer were sure that the other bro had organised it but once they came back to find it in full swing they decided to go with the flow and they got to partying. All was good until Irene came back and caught them in the act. She’s going to have some time punishing Chris and Spencer for their carry-on.

Things are not going smoothly on the farm. The twins were annoyed with Zac over Ethan’s funeral arrangements. They went off in a huff but when Zac brought them back home from the party they had a big chat and it’s going to be fine now, they’ll set up as a proper family.

Some odd dude from Andy’s past turned up in the Bay asking questions about the elder Barrett bro. He turned up at the party and heard that Casey had taken Andy on in the gym, where he was locking up. Andy could be in a for a bashing.

So many questions

Throughout that episode, I mostly asked questions. Like:

  • Where’s VJ?
  • Did Oscar really have that bad a first day at school?
  • How many people live in Leah’s? Seven apparently.
  • Why is Ricky still living in the Braxton house?
  • Who is in charge of Angelo’s? Surely not Kyle?
  • Is Montgomery the one who graffiti’d Bianca’s office?
  • How come Montgomery is allowed to treat students like dirt? No staff reviews there obviously.
  • Why did the doc allow Josh to stay at home?


Fly in the ointment

Everything is going well between Indigo and Chris, so in typical Summer Bay style, his ex, Robyn, turned up.  Chris thought they were broken up but she thinks they are still going strong.  He needs to let her down gently so that he get back to Indi, in her head, they had something special, but it was only a 3 day fling to him.  But he couldn’t summon up the courage to tell her the truth about Indi and gave Robyn a hug, which Indi oversaw.  He’s in trouble now.

Zac and Ricky are trying to get through to Evelyn in the bush.  It’s the twins birthday but a childhood memory wasn’t the way she remembered and it turns out that Zac wasn’t the monster she thought he was.  She decided to leave her father with the cult and stay with Hannah and her bro.

Leah is having a hard time keeping the truth about Oscar and Hannah being runaways from the cult.  VJ is happy that he has somebody to beat in his video games.  One of the creepy cult members showed up in the Bay looking for Zac.  Unfortunately VJ let slip that they’re living in his house so he called over and isn’t leaving until the twins return, then he’s going to take them back to their Dad.
