  • REALLY not fussed on Bianca, but we got to see a softer side of Spence.

    7.0
    Spence bums a lift off the ambos to witness what kind of before-admittance care they get, and is involved with a pregnant woman who is hemmoraging. Over the course of the episode, Spence gets emotionally involved with the case, his thoughts with Charlotte, as the details become clearer. A good storyline which helped us see another side of Spence - the deeply involved doctor who, I inferred, isn't too good with personal relationships because they involve giving attention to the one rather then the many. It helped explain why Spence was kind of uninvolved with Charlotte, although I still think Phelps and McIntosh have no chemistry.



    Sad to see (I assume!) McIntosh go on maternity leave. I really miss her character when she was perky and flirtatious, a little bit of an envelope-pusher. This Charlotte seems bland, crying a lot and feeling sorry forsel. Her insecurity of her job was an example of this - the old Charlotte wouldn't have minded.



    I was sorry that, given the potential for the storyline, they didn't address Charlotte's earlier pregnancy. I would have liked to see them address her old concerns - and his current ones - and also a question that's been bothering me - does Spence know about Charlotte's first pregnancy, and her involvement with Jack? He seems to get just a little ego boost about knowing he was the one to 'turn' a lesbian, I wonder how he'd feel to know it wasn't the first time? These are the kinds of unaddressed questions that bother me about the current season of All Saints.



    Bianca is really getting on my nerves. She seemed petty, manipulative and unprofessional, spiting Jack to favour Dan. For someone who complains about 'the boys club', she didn't waste much time pissing off the boys. I wonder if she'd be no underhanded with Vincent, who's older and more experienced? She seemed to take pleasure out of knowing she'd forced Jack out of his own home, and baited him with pretty much every innocent remark. That's the kind of thing I did when I was an unreasonable pubescant, not as a twenty-something with a degree behind me. For all her obvious competance, she seems quite immature and selfish.



    She also seems kind of dumb. Reacting blandly to finding out Jack knows about her husband didn't make much sense. I mean, surely she'd have thought 'he'll probably go running to Dan, I should give him an explaination, or make one up' - did she have such a sense of entitlement that she figured, surgeon-to-surgeon, he wouldn't dob her in?



    And I wasn't too impressed with Dan's behaviour either - telling Jack to make himself scarce for a week because 'it's his house' was rude and selfish. Equal rent = equal rights, regardless of who's name the lease is in. If I were Jack, I would very obviously start looking for somewhere new to leave - part of the reason Dan asked him to move in in the first place was because he was struggling with the rent, maybe a little reminder of that will make him be a little more gracious.



    This Dan-Bianca-Jack storyline is interesting, although Bianca doesn't have as much consistancy as I would like. I'm keen on seeing what they do with her, because someone who's life's ambition seems to be getting the resident's back up is not going to last long...



    A nice moment between Jack and Erica - why does it not surprise me that she's a very insightful person. Nor does it surprise me that Bart is the resovoir of news for the ward. Speaking of which, where WAS Bart this episode?



    Henrietta Bell was one of the best guest characters I've seen in a while, and the flute scene was a nice touch. Good to see Gabrielle interacting with a patient for once, rather then just dealing with Frank.moreless
