Xavier is back home and tries hard to catch up studying for the exams, but Palmer proves a bothersome patient, in more pain the the couch-macho admits. As a storm seems to get worse then the weather report foretold, Xavier is sent out to check up at the surf club. Romeo is determined to grab a yacht business opportunity when Roo presents a group of investors who visit just one day, but Alf stubbornly forbids braving the storm. Felix, Sasha's kid half brother, has run away, being bullied, meets her secretly at the beach and refuses to return home, even just until she can arrange a place for both of them to live. Written by
The build-up to the latest natural disaster is actually rather good. April's great in the opening scene, making it a shame her screen time is so short.Irene and Leah get some nice material and there's a surprising use of Marilyn, even if the continuity does seem a bit confused.Miles is a bit wasted though, only being at the caravan park to show his face on screen.
There's some good tension between Romeo and Indi and an electric confrontation between Alf and Romeo, with the older man easily recognising the risks involved.There's an overdue callback to the development storyline and more hints of Sasha's hidden depths.She gets some surprising interaction with Xavier and there's an early but welcome look at Felix, although the boy playing him sadly isn't the most naturalistic of young actors.Xavier and John get to resurrect their double act as well, with their first scene together and the phone call from Gina being particular highlights.
