Thanks. That's exactly the clue I was looking for, he's mentioned it several times but somehow it didn't register with me. How intriguing that we experience this in such a different way. In those episodes before he went to Sydney I did get those stepmother vibes from her. It seemed to me that she couldn't be involved as much as she wanted to, it was mostly David's business. And those moments of hesitation, repression even, made it even more dramatic for me. When she and Scott/John met at the market she became so extremely emotional, but I interpreted it as a combination of happiness and unloading. When Kevin was suspended (I think he was) because of his article in the school paper she marched straight to the principal. Not because she loves Kevin more, but I don't think anyone could tell her to stay out of it, not even David. The Visting Parents in tv dramas are notorious troublemakers, and grandpa Palmer is as grumpy and opinionated as they come. David himself, dressed in a tank top and shorts as short as Jill's hot pants, looks way too sexy for a domestic dad-type. The wedding guests are being ambushed by a camera crew of the Seven Network, I assume it was a very quite week in Australia's cultural city. The ceremony has been scaled down to a tiny living room wedding - crips, beer and a pink cake included. And of course grandpa's visit ends with a lot of screaming and shouting (you don't really want the Palmers as your neighbours, poor Victory Hardy). Gordon and Patricia reminisce their early years at Woombai, but when he mentions the day she showed up with Angela, she suddenly freezes. It's almost as if she's tried to rewrite her past.
