Would anyone like to see new foster family move into Summer Bay House in 1998 after Pippa left?.


Recommended Posts

I know they gave Pippa an open ended exit even though we knew she left permanently, but just say if Pippa had been leaving Summer Bay for good and sold the house, would you have liked to see new foster family move in?

As remaining foster kid Sam could easily have moved in with Donald, and Justine and Tiegan could have moved in with Alf & Ailsa, or Irene or even another one moving in with Donald. 

Rebecca and Travis just did not seem believable as foster parents as they seemed too young, at least when Natalie and Joel moved in they seemed more believable given they were older.

Pretty sure you've created this very same topic several times over the years now 😝

My own view: No (capital "N" intended). An entirely new foster family happening to coincidentally move into the very same house that another foster parent owned for 10 years wouldn't have been realistic. It wasn't as though the DOCS owned Summer Bay House. 

Whilst Pippa was at the heart of the show, we'd seen other adults move into fostering (of sorts, at least) within the first couple of years. Some of whom were original characters themselves or had significant tenure (i.e. Irene). Another foster family wasn't needed, in my view, and would have felt too forced. Besides, I personally enjoyed watching Trav & Rebecca making mistakes and realising it wasn't the best decision; I can imagine that happens all to often in reality.

"if it ain't broken, don't fix it".

Digression alert: TPTB have always been so determined to keep Summer Bay House on the show. The Beach House would appear to be only other "home set" which hit similar degrees of iconism. When both Maz and then Bobby / Greg left the show, they could have just let it disappear into the ether (as so many others did). But, no, they showed a third consecutive established Bay resident purchase it and hence it remains, 30 years on.

No I haven’t made a topic on this before.
