Episodes 105-110 It's been a slow few days' viewing here. I wanted the ending of #104 to resonate with me, so I had a couple of days without watching at all. Then I lost my groove. There's been some greatness and some "business as usual" after the wedding drama. The aftermath of Frank's accident had shades of Sid Fairgate, I thought. What with the shots of the old boat of a car being moved from the scene, then the imagery of Frank on the operating table. His eyes being held shut with little criss crosses of tape made him look even more vulnerable. And we got the surgery mixed with family in the waiting area (albeit mostly Tom, Pippa and Nico). Then the inevitable flatline. Also akin to Sid's post-accident episode, there was (as I remember) very little dialogue for a while. Instead we saw people reacting having become aware of the news: Neville watching Floss solemnly burn her tarot cards, etc. I had no idea what a spleen was until I first watched this episode (and even then, not for some time afterwards). But on the rare occasion the word is mentioned I always think of Frank. Alf's reaction - to pack Roo's belongings - was powerful enough. And Morag taking advantage whisking Roo away to gain further control over her was enjoyably frustrating. Now she's escaped and headed back to Summer Bay, leaving Morag speechless. And she wasn't the only one. There was a terrific post-wedding confrontation between Ailsa and Morag which crackled with an exciting energy: Naturally, this sparring was even more fun to watch having recently watched these two real-life good friends playing on-screen good friends in Sons and Daughters. The daily grind has involved plots like the return of Narelle, and Carly stealing some money from the household savings. But the borrowed money plot has taken us back to basics of the family unit operating without Frank, and shown how important trust is within the family unit (perhaps foreshadowing a key theme from next year). Narelle continues to be enjoyable enough, and there was a lovely scene where Lance and Martin - in the corridor - were speculating on what she and Frank were doing alone in his hospital room, and we cut to her sitting holding his hand as he spoke about what had happened and sobbed (trust, again). There was also a nicely subtle bit of playing with expectations: when Narelle arrived to see Frank, he was resting, so she gently cleared her throat and he opened his eyes to see her there. Some time after the two had bonded, Frank was again resting alone in his room. We hear the sound of a young woman gently clearing her throat. Smiling, Frank opens his eyes to see Roo standing there.
