Constable Risotto Mk II I'd like to think her name is Angela. Certainly not the first time they're reused the name badges - we had a Constable P Corelli pop up in recent years too 😛

2020 season begins, six weeks after it did in Australia, but vagaries of Oz broadcasts means we're only 26 episodes behind at the moment. Well. Okay, seriously, what was the hospital siege a

This Week on Parata Wars: Ari: You're a tool! Tane: You're a tool! Gemma: Knock it off! Nikau: I'm outta here! *Australian voiceover* "Brought to you by Gala Bingo."

I meant stay at the farm until came back back on his own. As in when he decided for himself to come back, not when Ari or somebody else browbeat him into coming back. 

As H&Alover has said, Dean did come back on his own: Ari tracked him down, made a few pertinent points about how Bella needed him and how he was making a mess of his life, then left him to make the decision.

Today!

Nice to see a bit more of the more vulnerable side of John in his talks with Irene.I wondered at first if their dinner was meant to be a kind of practice date but it looks like they just decided they needed to get out more.

Ziggy didn't really do her case any favours by sloping off with Tane like that! It looks as though Justin's going to forgive her anyway.Tori found something else to make a drama about, but a bit of tough-talking from Leah seemed to sort her out.

When I said that, I meant Dean coming back when he believed he worked through his grief and was ready to come back.

Also, I already responded to H&A Lover's comment so you should check that one out.

I really don’t understand why Kieran isn’t Alf’s son, it would make the story more interesting in my opinion.

It would feel like lazy writing. You know the kind they do when they wanna pull a kid (or two) outta thin air for Paul on Neighbours or Ken on Corrie.

I wouldn't be surprised if its revealed he is later. Olympic/ series finale cliffhanger perhaps.

Can we start shipping John and Irene yet?

NO!

I don't think it was anything Ziggy had planned, she was upset and worried about whether she would still have  a job and Tane caught her when she was vulnerable, she did accept he had stood up for her and kept her name out of it.  It appeared to me she had regretted her slip by going home without saying anything to Tane.   First time, I think, we have seen Tane's room.  Ziggy does seem to have a thing for bad boys -Jarrad, Dean and now maybe Tane.  The only good guy and by that I mean wasn't into anything really criminal was Brody - but look how that panned out. I know he got into drugs but there was a very good reason for that. 

Tori does over think things,  Christian has decided he wants to 'settle down' and has chosen the bay and Tori to do it in and with.  She hasn't asked him to or mentioned she's getting fed up with him  going off for days, he's decided. I realise she does have to think of Grace, she wouldn't want too many men coming in and out of her life, but she, Tori, could get involved with another doc at the hospital or indeed another local and they could break up.  Christian seems ready for a change in his life, he's done his travelling  and wants a place to call his own.   From what I understood he isn't based at ND, but goes wherever he and his skills  are needed, he just been away for four days. 

I really liked John and Irene's 'date', they seemed very at ease with each other but I personally wouldn't want them to be  a couple, just maybe go out for dinner, lunch as good friends.  This on line dating app is just a modern version of old fashioned dating agencies, and before that the card in a shop window! The other person saw   a photo of you, you got a list of their likes, dislikes as they did of you but until you actually met you wouldn't know if you would get on with them or vice versa.  John mentioned in passing maybe Cynthia had popped into  Salt saw what he looked like and left, but John had put up an honest photo of himself so wasn't lying about how he looked. Irene was a lot more polite than I was about her, just called her rude and wasn't worth John fretting himself.

Possibly because they wanted the character to be younger, possibly because they felt it would be too big a betrayal for Martha to have not only hidden the fact she had a son but Alf's son, possibly because it allows for the drama of Kieran's dad turning up down the line.

Alf's episode count this week:Four.Otherwise, rather sparse for a finale week, with Colby and Nikau only appearing in one.

Both a lot going on (in terms of characters and storylines) and not a lot (in terms of big developments).So I'll start with Kieran, who becomes the latest person to demonstrate it's only Sally who's rude enough to not address Alf the way he asks them to.We and Alf learn some more about his history, and it does sound like his father was around for a while.He seems to be getting on with Roo and that was a nice scene with John but... It's hard to tell whether he's annoyed with Jasmine for not giving him a job or annoyed with himself for stuffing things up.On one hand, it's good he takes his anger out on a tree (or himself?) rather than another person, but it's still not the healthiest.

Anyone else noticed John and Jasmine seem to have an unusually large amount of scenes together? Not expecting anything more than friendship, but it's an interesting dynamic.Of course, Jasmine's busy making (or rather reuniting with) another friend.Her reference to Robbo dying "last year" opens a whole can of worms, given that it was actually a few episodes into this season that he died so...when was new year? (I am now trying to remember what his grave said before deciding you can think about things too hard.)

Ziggy needed to be straight with Dean, who needs to move on and stop expecting her to change her mind, even without her having gone elsewhere. (Not that he hasn't...) I did think that with Jarrod, Dean and Tane, plus that guy that attacked Maggie, it seems Ziggy definitely has a type and Brody really wasn't it: No wonder they didn't work out! So after all that fuss, Bella does end up spending the night in Chez Parata after all.Lucky she wasn't there when Tane and Ziggy were getting busy down the hall...

And sucks even more to be Colby right now... Were those guards in the background deliberately looking the other way, because that really doesn't say much about the representatives of law and order?

I noticed that, but had put it down to them being part of the Surf Club “Family” - John typically has scenes with Mac, Willow and Dean, so if you take Willow out then Jasmine steps in so it makes sense.

Overall I just think that it’s a lack of their usual scene partners:

For Jasmine you also have her trying to give Tori space and Colby in prison.

John & Marilyn are being kept apart, the SBH residents are tied up in the Kieran story and Mac & Dean are tied up with Colby & the Paratas.
