Storyline

Stu silently, shyly watches his brutish father bicker with Sid, who warns he's ready to defend his children even if that requires violence. Only Dex realizes how insane Sid's unselfish protection of drama-queen Sasha is, as his career and the family's livelihood may be at stake just to spare her an ever-present memory, but is ignored. Darryl is so determined to prevent Charlie being taken off life support that he barricades her room and guards it with a gun, allowing only Sid to come in and adjust the ventilator. Casey however slips in and disarms his brother gently. Sid persuades the police to forgo arrest for 'kidnapping'. Romeo gets Indy to make up but has to accept a sales job in the resort to make up for Mink's theft. Written by KGF Vissers

"Please don't make this harder than it already is"
14 February 2012 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Again, the episode is totally missing decent plotting and decent emotional journeys.Why does the act of turning off someone's life support become a story about a criminal waving a gun around?And why are we supposed to sympathise with the criminal, as Sid once again falls for a hang dog expression and declares criminals shouldn't be punished if they feel really bad about it?Why does Ruby let the man who indirectly caused her mother's death and then stripped her of what dignity she had left sit around looking sad as they pull the plug on her?What rubbish.

At least there's some decent Walker family drama going on here.Alan is shaping up to be a really hateful villain and one that actually seems to inhabit the same world as the audience.Dexter is annoying and Colleen is very annoying but there's a nice character arc for Sasha and Indigo finally tells Romeo a few home truths.It's a shame we have to deal with the hospital's absurd overreaction towards Sid and Roo breaking up with him yet again.
