Watching the final two eps now on channel seven from last season. I would have forgotten all this if I hadn't watched it now!

It will be interesting to see what happens from here.

Yeah, I'm struggling to remember what happened before it got taken off. Because it wasn't all neatly wrapped up like a season final, it was halfway through the season and then just got taken off for Winners and Losers. I remember that Rachel got offered a job overseas, and Jake just got the sexual assault charges against him dropped. Carbo and Retta were engaged. Coby got offered the apprenticeship with Dave and he let Rachel use his painting in her ad campaign. Not sure what was going on with Nathan though. Ben had a new boss I think. I hope they do a full recap of the previous action.

Looking forward to seeing the new eps though. original.gif

Damn, I was hoping Jake was going to propose. I gather Rachel will not be coming back at all then?

Same! Ah well I suppose proposing would have been a bit predictable! Not sure if Rachel is coming back, I haven't really heard anything....hope she does though I really like her!

Yeah I thought the same thing. Totally wanted him to propose to her. I was bawling by the end though.

Do we know if she has definitely left the show or is she planning on returning for some more episodes?

Great to have the Rafters back.  It is a bit weird that all the younger female leads have now gone. Sorry, but Retta still gives me the irits.  i am guessing there might be a few new girls introduced this season by way of romance for the brothers.  Looks like Tom wil be a permanent fixture too, although there is still something shifty about him - gee John Howard is a good actor though.

My fav moment was when Rachel was getting into the taxi and saying goodbye and wee Ruby was trying to give her one of those big open mouthed kisses that little ones do - so cute!

She's currently working on a US show so I doubt she'll have time.  They left it open for her to come back in case she didn't get US work but obviously she did.

Agree with all of this RedsGirl!

OMG that child is adorable! I never rave about babies I see on TV, but she is so cute! Even hubby noticed that kiss and exclaimed how cute it was.

I also don't like Retta, nor do I like Tom. I just want Coby to have some peace and happiness without all the upheaval that Tom will bring. Jake reminds me of my first real boyfriend, who was also a football playing tradie with dark hair  wub.gif

This show losing anyone else??

The last 2 episodes for me have been very 'ho-hum' - I am VERY over the whole Tom storyline...

Me too! I was just coming in to say the same thing.

It just all seems so.....mediocre. I loved it before the break but now can't put my finger on whats missing. I think it's Rachael! She was a great character.

The Tom storyline is already irritating me as well.

Agreed. I sat and played on my iphone while watching it last night.

This is what I was thinking. I was trying to figure it out last night.

Why is Tom hiding the fact that he is seeing a lady?

Very meh.  I used to love it, but haven't taken it up again this season.   Too many other things I want to watch...not enough tv watching hours.

Is she a prostitute?  Otherwise I can't see the issue either.  In fact why doesn't she stay with her?  Of course this may not be possible if she is seeing other clients.

I really can't get into this season at all. I am finding it quite boring. Tom annoys me too. 1st episode i turned it off and went to bed and last night I watched it on and off while on the net. ho hum sad.gif
