Ramsay Street and London have been the settings for last week’s episodes and they were some of the most harrowingly squirm-worthy and dramatic episodes to date. Here are the highlights, it’s been difficult to pick just a few:
Dee Discovered ~ What could be worse than travelling to London to track down your presumed deceased wife, and your newly discovered daughter? Sleeping with your presumed deceased wife, in front of the online call that you failed to disconnect, the call that you had just engaged in with your wife? Oh and after that horror, of which Toadie (Ryan Moloney) is already ashamed of, that’s before he knows about Sonya’s (Eve Morey) viewing experience – you then find out that Dee (Madeleine West) is not Dee, but Andrea. A friend of Sindi Watts (Marisa Warrington) who had met the stand-in Dee and encouraged this whole debacle to start. It’s Susan (Jackie Woodburne) who has started to suspect foul play, the discovery from Sindi’s mobile phone that Dee is also known as Andrea sent the nosey neighbour on a quest to uncover the truth. Cutting to the chase, Toadie has landed himself in hospital having run out in front of a vehicle in panic following his exploits. Then just to add insult quite literally to injury, in strolls Karl (Alan Fletcher) with news of Dee’s true identity. What a pickle! Plus Toadie finds out that Sonya knew about his misdemeanour, because she saw it begin to unfold. Arrrrgggh!
Sonya ~ What more can I say except… Sonya? The poor love has not only witnessed her husband getting it on with an imposter, but in heart-breaking scenes she ends up in hospital and the unthinkable happens. Mark’s (Scott McGregor) baby is lost. I have to applaud Morey for an amazing performance, she has surpassed herself throughout the recent plot-lines.
Mark’s dreams ~ Prior to the tragic loss of his baby, Mark is lying on the bed with Sonya (the fact of which Nel has already reported to her dad over the phone) and while Sonya is dreaming of a happy reunion with Toadie, Mark is dreaming of declaring his love for her. Will Mark confront his feelings?
Elly side-lined ~ Elly (Jodi Anasta) is already on the rampage when it comes to Finn (Rob Mills) and his re-appearance in her life and in the school she works in. However, he is set to tread of her toes again as he charms his way into Xanthe’s (Lilly Van Der Meer) good books and she chooses him as her new tutor to help her with Science. Of course he offers to help with English too which sees off Miss Conway. Beyond angry with the situation, Elly confronts him, but one things for sure, he’s not going anywhere soon.
Break A Leg Awards 2017 ~ I’d just like to take this opportunity to announce that Chloe Buckles, one of our assistants for this year’s Break A Leg Awards has nominated Eve Morey for the long-listed Best Actress on Television nominations. Short-listing takes place in the autumn so there’s a while to go before it is decided if she will be in the running for the award. However, if she is short-listed you can vote for her in the public vote, details of which will be announced nearer the time.
