2021 Season - UK Episode Discussion


Recommended Posts

When the cavalry coming over the hills is the River Boys, you know to check your brain at the door. That sequence couldn't have been more cartoony if Heath had come swinging in dressed as a bat. (Or indeed the Black RPM Power Ranger, who I recently discovered was played by Dan Ewing as basically Heath Braxton in spandex.) But what the heck, it was actually quite fun to see Heath wander back onto the show, take down a Big Bad Wannabe and wander out again (even if the shots of a bunch of guys in hoodies fighting a bunch of other guys in hoodies were almost impossible to decipher).It's a shame he was in the promo, because it would be great for him to have turned up completely unheralded, but I guess as someone once said "You don't need people to be surprised, you need them to watch." We seem to have missed some conversations though: How did we go from Ari being prepared to go to jail rather than do the job to him...being prepared to do the job?

Colby and Dean's farewell...To be honest, it feels like someone came up with this two years ago and slotted it in here.There was a time when they were probably the closest people to each other, but since then they've gained blood relatives and spent most of their time with Ziggy or Mackenzie or whoever.So maybe it didn't have the impact it once would have, but it was affecting all the same.

I think both Justin and Ziggy are interpreting things wrong.I don't think Justin's giving Ziggy these jobs as punishment, which is what she seems to think, but I don't think Ziggy's got ideas above her station like Justin seems to think either.Her meltdown at the end seemed to leave him not having a clue what to say next.

ūüé∂Who's that comin' over the Hill? Is it Heath Braxton? Is it Heaaath Braaaxton?ūüé∂

(Couldn't resist)

Him waving a cricket bat probably woulda made that sequence... a bit less crap and would be in with the character. "HOWZAT!" *crack*

I actually enjoyed seeing Heath again even if it was very random and brief.  He may not have said much but I liked his line about not having had so much fun in ages. Nought wrong in having the RB's coming to to your rescue, though I'm guessing not many of them are still in their first prime of life.  It was hard to tell who was who in the big fight.  I did cheer at all the RB's cars, trucks pulling in  a nice orderly line.   Of course prior to that Ari and Tane did a great job in persuading Leon and Paul to turn up as they had worked out it was more than a  two man job having done their homework.   When Ari and Tane were talking again about how they would handle Leon & Paul  I could hear the wheels turning in Dean's head - nice one Dean!   What happened to Mac's car?  Mac actually seemed to let them off quite lightly when she stormed round there to try and stop them.

Dean made a discreet withdrawal rather than cause bother¬†¬†when he saw Tane approach¬† Ziggy at the bar, did he 'see' something between them that Ziggy is denying?¬† But then later after Ziggy had explained to Tane why them getting¬†together would be a bad idea she wasn't exactly fighting¬†him off when he kissed her.¬† She did mention the 'thing' with him and Mac.ūüėȬ†¬†

The scene between Dean & Colby, whenever  you think it may have been planned Red, was very moving, end of an era really.  They have both come a long way since they reunited and have got family ties, but there is still that bond between them.  Dean and Colby can call each other but not the same.  Was Dean encouraging Colby to fight back, he's only one guy!

Maybe Ziggy felt a bit reluctant to hand back the reins even if it did mean the pressure was off, to her maybe it felt like she had been demoted. Justin could have done the driving round, which when we saw what happened may have been a better choice.

Well, five minutes after John decides to find a date the old-fashioned way, it seems he can't move without running into an attractive woman, although he seemed a bit rabbit in the headlights when Irene carefully explained what had just happened.Susie doesn't seem that good at her job though, given the way Tori and Christian seemed unimpressed at her housing selection.Justin definitely overstepped the mark inviting Christian to move in with them and has left Tori in a difficult position.Marilyn seemed to be only hearing what she wanted to as well.

Ziggy bawling her eyes out and giving Justin way too much information about her love life was probably not top of his list of things to do that day, but the scenes were sweet and funny anyway and he didn't do too bad a job.That's got to be at least the third time Justin's collapsed at the garage like that, right? Talk about deja vu, no wonder he feels like there's no end to it.

Having Heath back made very much little sense with him having left the gang and started a new life if anything it should have been Ash it's Shame it wasn't for a proper story though even though I didn't care about Ari or Tane in the whole thing 

So you can pretty much blame Dean for planting the seed of you have do whatever in jail in Colbys mind
