  1. Yes, we saw Bella visit Colby in his cell on Tuesday and yes, he was just as unpleasant to her initially as D.B. said (although, for the sake of fairness, he did calm down a bit later). Angelo used the correct terminology with Colby, I think: He wasn't being brought in for questioning, he was being charged.That moves him beyond suspect towards alleged perpetrator.(A suspect is someone they think might have done it.He's now the person they think did it.) Alf's episode count this week:Five! The Paratas seemed to agree that Ryder did them a favour calling the police (and they said it in
  2. Flynn sent Rocco packing but what's going to happen to him now? Brad's not really been a problem so far but sounds like that could change...
  3. Well, they started off well, but they were outnumbered already and the other side probably had reserves. At this point, the thorny issue becomes...who is the right party? The dealers were the one who turned up looking for a fight, but Tane at least had broken the law so it's not a case of one side's completely innocent and the other side's completely guilty. Of course, if none of them talk to the police, then it's a moot point.As for Dean, as I pointed out, telling the police that Colby did it doesn't really qualify as looking out for him, or at least not in Colby's book when he's still hoping
  4. Irene twice said that Angelo wouldn't have arrested Thorne without reason.No matter how much Thorne might try and pretend, the people who've been around long enough know Angelo wouldn't fit someone up because he's had an affair with his wife.I do think Angelo's in character: This is reminiscent of his dogged pursuit of Hugo back in 2009, and while he was slightly wide of the mark that time (Hugo was involved but lower down the food chain than Angelo seemed to think), this time he's spot on.As with Leah and Justin here, the older characters seem shocked by Colby's arrest, but they're not actual
  5. Discussion of today's episode follows: It's always extremely satisfying to see Thorne's smug bubble get well and truly punctured, and this is probably the most it's ever happened. He was as cocky and swaggering as ever during the arrest and interrogation, convinced that Angelo had nothing on him and he'd be out of there if he kept quiet, only for the reality to hit him as he was processed and flung in a cell.I unfortunately found Bella rather annoying with her insistence that they're not allowed to treat Colby like this, and then insanely trying to blame it all on Taylor who's only in the
  6. It's your story: It can happen any way you want!
  7. It's nice that Flynn's not insecure about Brad. Sally remembering it was Rocco a lot earlier than she did in the show...
  8. I seem to recall Tane mentioning he went to the same school as Ari and Mikaere, I think in Australia? Well, I've been waiting for this day for nearly two years...I cheered at Colby realising Taylor wants nothing to do with him, and at his complete failure to gaslight Bella, and at his also complete failure to find something to hold the Paratas for yet again.And then of course that ending, with him still trying to play innocent despite the game seeming to be well and truly up.I am concerned that Angelo decided to give the order more to prove a point than anything else after Colby's repeate
  9. Evie and Zac talking at cross purposes.Will Evie go through with the donation?Who knows?
  10. Alf's episode count this week:Three. While they didn't know for sure, Mackenzie and Ari pretty much guessed in the previous episode that Colby didn't know Bella was going, so letting him know via an invite to the farewell really was asking for trouble.Thorne once again demonstrates that he might claim to be the son of a police officer, but it was Ross that raised him and it shows.Much like Ross, he was treating Bella like she was his property and wasn't allowed to leave him, resorting to blatant police corruption in order to get rid of Nikau.(I wonder if it's crossed his self-centred mind
  11. So, bit of an impasse between Alf and Martha.Whilst I think he's being stubborn, I find it perfectly reasonable that Alf expected them to live together once they were married, and I'm a bit bothered that Martha's reason for maintaining her own house isn't solely because it's her home now but because she wants her "independence": Choosing to spend big chunks of your marriage away from each other because you don't want to see your spouse all the time isn't particularly promising. They should have discussed this beforehand though instead of Alf assuming Martha would move to Summer Bay full time.H
  12. What she's done isn't fair to Dean but somehow I can't bring myself to dislike Amber.I wasn't expecting to see her today but we got a sign-off from her, at least for now.I'm not sure what the significance of those binned drawings was: Did she throw out Jai's drawings of Dean? But then we saw her unloading the bike Dean bought him so... The fact she seems to have taken Jai away from Francesca as well as Dean makes me think a bit more kindly of her. And I'm very sorry we didn't get to see the look on her face. Alf and Martha spend the episode bickering like the old married couple they are t
  13. I'm still very much Team Angelo.Sure, he's a bit Gene Hunt at times, but the only way he's really looking bad is the way that he seems to have fixated on Colby's duplicitous but legal activities rather than actually trying to gather evidence.Okay, it looks from this episode as though he was trying to get Thorne to confess, but that plan's pretty much a bust.At least, after my expressing bewilderment at her failure to realise that Colby was only worried about evidence against him because there was evidence against him yesterday, Taylor finally heard that penny dropping and realised just what sh
  14. That lasted a few days at most before she remembered what Colby was really like.She was fully on his side by the time he killed Ross. So...because he hurt someone she loves? She knows Ross' faults but, as she's said, he was still her dad, just like Nikau still loved his dad despite knowing he did bad things. Yeah, I think you've said that before. Not sure why you think that given Colby's admitted he didn't bother to check on the others before running off and Dean pretty much hated Colby for abandoning him when he came back. So, today, with Thorne well and truly back in sup
  15. Intriguing idea to have Flynn still around when this is going on.Looking forward to seeing where you take it.
  16. Not sure if Bobby and Frank have worked out how this is going to work but they've both bonded with Sophie which is good, I guess...
  17. Well, yes, I agree with you there. Like I said, Dean and co aren't sorry Ross is dead, and they understand why Colby would want him dead. They just think it would have been better for Colby to have put him in jail and got on with his life, rather than murder him and potentially end up in jail himself (with them along for the ride as accessories). May 2019 (Oz pace).
  18. Lucinda is on Donald's side, Roo is on Barbara's side, so they're not actually anything to each other? Frank took a heck of a long time to get with the programme but he got there in the end. Adam ended things with Marilyn as painlessly as possible.
  19. How so? I get that they share an uncle in Donald but aren't they completely different sides of the family tree?
  20. So...basically you think Dean's a hypocrite who thinks Colby did the right thing but regularly berates him about it anyway? (And did long before the body was discovered, to the point of suggesting Colby wasn't a great boyfriend for his sister.) There's a difference between no-one being sorry Ross is dead and them all thinking Colby made the right choice.You obviously missed the moment I was as disgusted with Dean as I've ever been, when he shamed and guilt-tripped Bella for threatening to report Colby to the police for murdering her father. And sure, Angelo being back in the police is laughabl
  21. Shauna gave Greg good advice. Unless I'm missing something, isn't Roo and Lucinda being cousins a bit of a stretch?
  22. They didn't even try. Certainly Colby didn't. As you yourself pointed out, Dean tried to talk him out of it, so he obviously didn't believe it was the best or only way to get rid of Ross. He's just taken an attitude of "My mate, right or wrong." He'll defend Colby to outsiders, a category which seems to include Ziggy and sometimes even Bella, but deep down he knows Colby did the wrong thing.Quite often, not even deep down, as him telling Colby he'll never forgive him for it demonstrates. Anyway...Tori continues to be a mess and Christian continues to be the perfect antidote, refusing to l
  23. Adam needs to stop stringing both women along. Does Shauna think Pippa's her mother?Is she right?
