Would anyone like Mary to have stayed for longer?.

Recommended Posts

I really enjoyed Mary's storyline as I  related to  someone like Alf being angry with an unwanted guest saying.

I just think it would be funny had Mary stayed while Alf was away and worked in the General Store in Alf absence, changing everything. Then when Alf returns from his boat trip he loses his temper not only to find out that not only is Mary is still living at his house but also has taken over his store. Then Alf say's that's it Mary, out!.

I note Sgt Hail said she was under a number of other aliases. He could have showed Alf and Alsa her Prisoner mugshot. He forgot 2 of those aliases: Jean Carter and Nola McKenzie, and that she was wanted in WA for killing a police officer.

Who was Mary? :o 

Women who stayed at Alf and Ailsa for few days and was oringaly  housekeeper and turn out she was fraud.

I notched with 90s we had sort term older female characters like  Patricia/Sue/Jean/Louis/Irene/Julian and Mrs Croft/Laura/Mary.

It was interesting and unusual for them to write her in for what seemed to be Alf's exit storyline. I agree, it would have been cool to keep her around for a while longer, it felt like they were building up to something way more interesting.

I think to a point the character had run her course.It did seem to come to a head rather suddenly, with Alf suddenly fed up enough to pay her off when she only seems to have been around about three days, and I do wonder if it was curtailed because Ray Meagher's leave caught them by surprise.But if the ending of the storyline was already decided, there was only so long you could have had her hanging around coming up with excuses to stay with the Stewarts and annoying Alf in a fake well-meaning way.It was slightly unresolved though and it might have been interesting to have her come back a few months down the track, perhaps claiming to have had a change of heart and paying the Stewarts back and leaving everyone wondering whether or not they could trust her.
