There’s nothing I hate more than people pretending they’re drunk for TV. Unless, of course, it’s Drunk History, but they might actually be drunk.
So Mac is stumbling around after kissing Tane and her quite frankly humiliating attempt at propositioning him in the very house she shares with Tane’s girlfriend, Ziggy.
It’s like Mac is 15 and getting absolutely smashed on whatever she could find in her parents’ stash. Mac is supposed to be this cashed up posh character who owns a bar so she should be drinking something actually nice instead of some indistinguishable rum, or maybe tequila.
And yes, I know she’s been in hospital twice, lost a baby, her boyfriend, Ari, dumped her for his ex and she’s just trying to get through and by getting revenge on Ari’s brother.
Tane is very well behaved through all of this and rings Ziggy, but the call goes unanswered because she’s deep in conversation with Dean, the ex. But more on old mate Dean later.
The next morning Zig and Tane just so happen to bump into each other at the beach as most people do in Summer Bay.
“You’re not going to like this,” Tane says.
And it’s true, Zig doesn’t like what she hears, and overacts in giant proportions and doesn’t hesitate to kick the monumentally hungover Mac out of the house.
I assume it will all blow over by next week and the gals will be friends again.
While this is going on, Amber tries to ruin her relationship with Dean, again.
Dean has declared countless times that he’s committed to Amber, the mother of his child, but Amber’s so insecure, merely the sight of her boyfriend with someone of the female gender is enough to send her question their relationship.
“I’m tired Dean,” Amber says as she rolls over in bed but doesn’t turn off the light.
The next day Amber takes a leaf from crazy Jasmine’s book and storms up to Ziggy and Tane with Dean by her side whilst wearing an appropriately military-esque outfit.
“I have had it with your constant texts and your little meets ups,” Amber says to Ziggy.
“Take your crazy somewhere else,” Ziggy replies and then continues to put Amber in her place.
As we know, Tane is partial to a bit of a fight and declares his love for Ziggy right there.
“I think you’re the hottest, toughest woman I’ve ever met,” Tane says.
“I love you.”
“Good coz I love you too,” Ziggy replies.
Amber and Dean return home with their problems and gives him and ultimatum.
“Look me in the eye and tell me you’re not still in love with Ziggy,” Amber says.
Dean moved on pretty fast from Ziggy, but we’d get incredibly bored if a new love interesting didn’t come in a sweep him off his feet. However, in this case, his undeniable love is for his son.
Also, Dean doesn’t exactly help himself and just continues to look confused and says some vague things like, “I’m here with you, that’s all that matters.”
Although, to my shock, I actually agree with what he says next.
“Why are you suddenly looking for drama,” Dean says.
The pair don’t leave thing on great terms with Amber giving Dean “thinking time” to figure out if he’s still in love with Ziggy.
Meanwhile detective Leah is hot on Susie’s heels and reveals to John all the info she has dug up.
Justin just grunts because John is over too early and pops pills in the background. Honestly, it would be better if Justin didn’t speak.
Later on , Leah gets a tip off about some “totally random person on the internet” spotting Susie which displeases Justin very much.
He manages to get a few words out this time and says Leah is in too deep.
“It’s just money, it’s not worth putting yourself at risk,” Justin says.
But Leah isn’t deterred.
