The thing with the mysretious preacher could have been done a lot better if he hadn't been treated so dismissively. AS has in the past done some quite classy storylines about faith and disbelief which amounted to 'in God's hands' but this felt like a rush job. Nice to see Wil Traval doing something, though.
Thought the storyline with Mike and Steve had interesting potential. Both recovering addicts not recogising that in each other. LOVED the bit where Gabby asked 'are you ever tempted' and Steve said 'everyday. but he makes it easier.'. Those of you who know my history know I'm qualified to say YES! THEY GOT IT!
Thought Dan's proponsal was really quite sweet. The way Traval described it as 'there's a baby monitor in the room...' made me cringe because it sounded tacky, but they did it in such a good way. I loved the way Zoe, Jack and Charlotte were listening and knew they shouldn't be but had to anyway. It was very sweet and homey and reminded me or a time AS could write such sweet personal storylines.
But... to BAW (because the "Bart/Annie Wreck" bores me). Frank goes from a hectic, short-staffed ED because his precious Barty needs some guidance? No bloody wonder people are sick of him. I'd be ropable if things were as thinly-run as the ED was and the boss went walkies to help out a staff member on a personal problem. Not to mention the fact that staff member is the reason agency staff don't want to work with him. I know it's partly Oliver and his grudge, but I think Frank has a lot to answer for, after so many years of him jacking people off.
Would have given this episode an 8. 5 because BAW dragged it down.
