Geoff and Ruby commiseration with Xavier's mourning is cut short by indignation over a newspaper quote from Palmer, who denies it being accurate, that the human trade victims are a burden. Leah doesn't allow her date with handyman Hazem being disturbed by Palmer's gross insinuations about Hazem's invoicing. Aden happily accepts a job at the diner. Nicole is mean to him for not pushing after their jail romance and to Liam, denying any reconciliation. Written by
"If we run into each other, we're civil but that doesn't mean I want anything more"
Incredibly frustrating.The casual dismissal of everything Aden and Nicole did at the end of the last series is incredibly annoying, with the local police as willing to let Aden get away with breaking the law as their counterparts in Summer Bay and Aden promptly deciding to forget about their kiss.It's hard to work out his motivation for this and also hard to work out his cheerfulness:Is it forced or is he in denial?Nicole sadly is left crying although she does get some great scenes with Alf.
The troubles caused by the "one week later" in the previous episode are underlined as everyone talks about stuff from the start of the week as if it was the previous day.It's hard to tell where they're going to go with this refugee storyline and also hard to tell whether they should just quietly drop it or not because they're never going to do it justice.Ruby's tirade against John Palmer, flinging around words like "racist" because they're convenient, is annoying and Geoff standing there looking smug instead of telling her to shut up is even more annoying.The resolution of the conflict between John and Hazem is the only really satisfying part of the episode as it shows both of them willing to sort out a fair deal.
