All To Play For
AIRED:
Ian is back at home and is with Sal Biagi, at the request of the Stefan - much to Donna's annoyance. Tanya promises not to tell anyone of Nurse Dunkley's exploits, on condition that Nurse Dunkley persuades Frank's ex-wife and son to switch off Frank's life support...just as they're about to pull the plug, they get a nasty surprise! Jason is stopped by the police after he tries to force Sal's car off the road. Stefan makes it clear to Jason that he's on his last warning but persuades Sal to cover for his captain. Chardonnay sells the story of her ordeal to a newspaper in the hope of shaming her attackers, but the article does not turn out as she expected. Kyle spends an evening out flirting, as he is furious to see their private life all over the tabloids.moreless

    An episode with a little bit less bigger events than before, but still with a decent story. I found the Janette story to be hilarious. I loved how Frank surprised everyone at the end. It's going to be hell in the future for Tanya and Jason, won't it? I can't wait to see this.



    The Chardonnay story is a bit of a downer, but I can see where Chardonnay is coming from. Meanwhile, Kyle was being quite a douche, and thankfully he got out of it. I guess Jason's influence really rubs off on people. I loved how Marie tricked Jason, but that was just it. Also, Donna seems to have a little bit of flirting going on with Sal, but that was just it. It wasn't one of the better ones this season.moreless

    Tanya catches Frank's nurse, Janette, molesting him while he is still in a coma. Tanya assures Janette she will tell no one what she saw as long as Janette can convince Frank's family to take him off life support. Jason rejects Marie, so Sal drives her home. Jason follows them in a rage and almost causes a serious accident. Chardonnay decides to sell her story to a newspaper in order to gain some control over her life again. This angers Kyle, who goes out and contemplates having an affair. Under the advice of their manager, Sal has moved into Ian's house. Frank's family has agreed to terminate his life support, until at the last second, he wakes up.



    I'm starting to like to Sal, but only because I hate Jason more and more with each episode. Sure, he should end things with Marie (he should have never started) but to then act like a spoiled brat with the whole driving incident... Well he's an ass, what more can I say? He should be put down like a rabid dog. Franks's eyes have finally opened, but I expect he'll be a gibbering idiot for many episodes to keep the suspense going. He can't be blabbing the truth too soon. There needs to be time for Tanya to try murdering him with a pillow or something. Or, blackmailing the nurse into doing it. I like how Marie set Jason up, and how his wife showed up at the restuarant instead. That was fun. I was going to lose all respect for Marie if she had sex with that slimey bastard one more time.moreless
