    2018 Season - UK Episode Discussion

    I was pretty much nodding in agreement with Chelsea at the start: Colby will always be a River Boy and never change his way of doing things.So I was somewhat frustrated that his childish tantrum and borderline sexual assault won her over.I can't deny they seem happy and I imagine Colby meant his promise that things will be different in the same way he meant what he said to the police tribunal, but I also suspect he'll forget it as soon as it gets in the way of doing what he wants. Tori's blinkers remain firmly in place.She was warned that using Robbo as a donor was risky but she ploughed ahead and now she's refusing to accept the outcome, even using an out of context comment from Maggie as proof she's doing the right thing.Justin's banging his head against a brick wall but I'm not sure if he's ever managed to convince Tori that one of her bad ideas is a bad idea.

    I never realized until now how much Brody looks like Robin Thicke (blurred lines singer) That kissing/sex scene with Colby and Chelsea in the caravan was badly edited, poorly choreographed and just plain awkward, far too drawn out. Just realized, Raffy looks like one of Brad Pitt's kids.

    The Sutherland Family - thoughts?

    I have only seen snippits of the Sutherland era and already it reminds me of the Barnhurst 5 era of Prisoner, not terrible, just so different and hard to watch. A bunch of new characters, with old characters leaving and only a few staying behind.

    Pippa Fletcher/Ross - Vanessa Downing & Debra Lawrance

    DebPip was the best replacement for VanPip, I got used to DebPip quickly after VanPip left. DebPip is so good that it doesn't feel like VanPip was replaced.

    Irene Roberts - Lynne McGranger

    I kinda wish she'd go back to how she was in the 90s, God she was enjoyable to watch, she still is, but she has since mellowed and that's sad.

    2018 Season - UK Episode Discussion

    Bella seems to have quickly been reduced to another Mangrove River brat insisting their way of doing things is right.Just about everything she said to Chelsea was a dogmatic statement about "Colby and Dean are the ones in the right here, m'kay?" with absolutely no evidence or logic to back it up."They saved my life." Er, how?I mean, I get that Ross is a dangerous individual and he could have turned on Bella at any moment, but she'd been with him for years without him apparently laying a finger on her, so I wouldn't say she was in immediate danger. "If Colby and Dean had done things your way, they'd be dead." Again, er, how? If they'd left it to the police, they'd surely have been in no danger at all and probably wouldn't have been allowed anywhere near the situation. "Ross had a plan for if the police showed up." Okay.So, er, what was it?If it was some sort of murder/suicide pact with Bella...well, that's bad news for Bella, and may even justify the "saved my life" claim, but doesn't really hurt Dean, Colby or anyone else.Or are we meant to believe he had machine gun turrets and minefields set up (in which case, why didn't Bella use them instead of a crossbow)?Or was his plan just "Get away from the police and then go kill Dean and Colby because it's bound to be their fault"?Of course, if Ross is that crazy prepared, then he'd probably have a plan for if Colby took Bella while he was away, which he's now free to carry out... Either way, I think Chelsea's right to get away from the situation: Colby will never be a straight cop and Chelsea will never be comfortable with the values he and his friends live by. To continue banging on for a bit, Bella's suddenly reduction to just another sulky teen obsessing about her brother's love life underlines how rushed and sketchily drawn this whole long is, as if someone suddenly realised how near finale week was (it's the week after next) and so they need to get everything in place and Bella with Colby.So someone thinks it'd be cool to have a big cliffhanger of Bella aiming a crossbow at Colby... except they can't carry on with that so one scene later she throws it away for no reason, runs off and is generally helpless, then two episodes later she's playing happy families with him.There's no real reason for her to have been hidden for so long (or any explanation as to how Neil found her when Colby didn't): The place they were was isolated but not that isolated and Ross has a car and phones which he must pay for somehow even if they're going hunter-gatherer to feed themselves. (Is he working cash in hand?Stealing to get by?) Are we to assume Bella wasn't allowed off the property and if so what level is her education?Maybe we'll get answers to some of it eventually but Home and Away does have a tendency to go for big dramatic reveals ahead of well-thought-out back stories. Meanwhile, I'm afraid my reservations about Raffy and Ryder are resurfacing.It is all a bit Ryder and Coco Redux: Cute getting together scene, uncomfortable reactions from parental figures, first date...and then nowhere to go really except carry on as before with more holding hands.So I'm hoping there's actually a reason for them to be a couple beyond he's a boy and she's a girl.I'm also hoping, after Justin's involvement last week, we actually see some reaction from the Morgans and it's not just all about John's "funny" complaining.I'd like it if Coco's fine with it and Raffy's worrying for nothing but time will tell...

    It seems we are never to agree over Colby and his actions. Why didn't Neil let the Yabby Creek or whichever cop shop was nearest to where Ross was now - he is a wanted man? It was Chelsea's choice not to tell the cops where Dean and Colby were once she did get the message from her dad and found out what had happened, we saw her wavering on the beach. I don't think Colby had any idea of what Bella was going to tell McCarthy and her story of 'finding' Colby on his social media was very plausible he had been posting asking for info about her. Hope Bella 'loses' her phone 'cos she's got that message to Ross on it. Colby did tell SG he'd grown used to lying to the police when he was living with Ross, it would have got to be second nature and seem normal as you said Red, he would have been young and easily manipulated and bullied. Bella had been alone with him for five years so much easier for Ross to work on her. That must have been shattering for Bella to have it confirmed her mum was dead, before Colby and Dean only had Karen's word for it based on what Ross had told her five years earlier, they didn't have any proof. The police have now of course have found a body and identified it as Michelle as SG told Dean last week. The fact Bella now blames herself isn't going to help her readjust, which Colby did acknowledge is going to take time. She must have felt really torn, loving her mum, knowing what her dad was like and being scared of him but in a perverse way loving him too. I'm guessing at sometime Colby told her about SG as when Bella saw them together on the pier she asked Dean if that was Colby's fiancé. Dean helping Colby & Bella didn't have any connection at all with the River Boys, he said it was family business, which he counts Colby and Bella as being. Loved the shy, awkward breakfast with Ryder and Raffy and Marilyn having suspicions about their sudden closeness. Well the 'let's keep it between just us two for now' didn't last long did it. Alf did ask Ryder to 'cough' so he got more information than he expected, Roo where are you when Grumps needs you, but he was pleased for Ryder who is nervous about it being the right time what with Raffy's epilepsy and if she is in the right mind set. Marilyn seemed very pleased for her, and Justin seemed to be OK with it guess the rest of the Morgan's will be once they know, but from what we saw John isn't. They just need to take it slow no rush, typical Ryder wanting to go overboard for a first proper date - hot air balloon! I have noticed Raffy seems to be doing a lot better on her new meds, bit more confident, happier, so let's hope the docs have hit on the right dosage and combo this time. John & Ben appear to have found common ground, thumbs up to Ben when he turned John's 'not my business' statement against him.

  28. Usually I would had the same opinion as you have here, that if you want something done, you should do it yourself, given that when people have done exactly like Colby has before (e.g. Robbo when rescuing Colby from Ebony, or the Braxtons and Zac saving Oscar and Evie from the cult) and in my opinion, they had been right to do so, because the stakes, as you said, have been very high. The problem that I have with it in this situation is that it didn't seem that necessary. I do believe that the police understand just how dangerous Ross is as Colby and Dean understood it, and I doubt they would just go in guns blazing, instead perhaps using sneak tactics or getting Bella out of the house and then arresting him (Like Red suggested). My main problem with it is Colby's attitude that his way is always the right way, even though him doing it on his own in the past has led him nowhere to finding Bella, almost got him killed, and actually got someone else killed. He really should have caught on by now, in my opinion.
