Well, after last night’s heartbreaking episode of Charlie finding out that Brax slept with Tegan, the drama continued tonight. Charlie wakes up looking a little worse for wear, and Ruby is on her for the details. After explaining that she didn’t sleep well last night, Ruby puts it down to seeing Brax. Charlie stomps around like a teenager, snapping at her daughter that she doesn’t want to talk about it. “I just want to forget the whole thing”. Once Ruby learns that Charlie caught Brax in bed with Tegan, she is shocked and ready to knock Brax out, but more importantly is there to support her mother.
Casey isn’t much happier with his brother’s behaviour, not understanding why he used Tegan when he is in love with Charlie. Brax explains with his usual ‘It’s complicated’, but Casey keeps pushing him. Brax tells casey that they are all in danger… including Charlie and Ruby. ‘For their sakes, they need to believe I’m with Tegan’. Not exactly sure why this is, but I presume that Brax has some sort of plan in place? Charlie runs into Brax on the beach and he tries to explain himself. Charlie is sure that Brax has just come up with more lies, and tells him how hurt she is that he slept with Tegan while supposedly being in love with her. Brax turns it around, saying that Charlie was the one to walk away, and she has no say over what her does with his life now. We should have know that this relationship disaster, despite Brax being the one who cheated, would still be blamed on Charlie; it usually is.
Sid plans a romantic dat for him and Roo (well actually, he just puts on the same date that Roo planned last week and he couldn’t make it to, but still…), and gives Romeo a large wad of money to get it ready as soon as possible. As Romeo is planning, Alf puts the grand idea in his head that he should take Indy along as the deckhand. Try and get her to forgive her Dad and warm up to Roo. Seems like a terrible idea, but for some reason Romeo makes it happen. Roo is surprised (oh wow…the date I planned last week… Sid you shouldn’t have!), but more surprised when she realises she has to spend the day with Indy. The day is a disaster (well aside from Indy spilling champagne all over Roo; that was just funny), and Indy is no closer to getting past her father and Roo’s relationship. What a waste.
Heath has the bright idea of moving the drugs he and Tegan stashed as he needs the money. Tegan is hysterical telling Heath that Jake will kill him if her steals those drugs, and Casey tries his hardest to talk his brother out of it. He follows Heath to the beach, where he sees him carrying the backpack and already being spoke to by polices (that didn’t take long did it?). Charlie asks him where he is going a with a full bag, and then asks him to open it. Heath looks over at Casey, winks and tries to make a run for it. The cops do a dive tackle and put him face down in the sand. Finally they are able to charge a river boy with something! Looks like Heath is going to jail… He tells Brax not to waste his money on trying to get him out. He messed up, and he knows Casey is looking up to the right brother. Bless.
Brax’s response of ‘Blood and Sand’ doesn’t really answer much, but sounds super cool.
Tomorrow Night – Roo and Sid struggle with Indy’s feelings towards them and Dexter tries to talk to his sister about it. Looks like there might be something else on Indy’s mind that is bothering her though…
