Episode Summary

EDIT
Love in the time of Coleridge
AIRED:
While Laura's on a one way track to the altar, Maxs announces he has accepted a lucrative job with an international newspaper and will be leaving Pearl Bay - and Laura - behind. Of all things, a trivia night question causes Max to reassess his life. Max is reminded of his likeness to the mariner in Colerdige's 'The Rime of the Ancient Mariner', who shot an albatross, his potential saviour. In other words, Max realises he should stop making a habit of sabotaging his own happiness. Meanwhile, Bob launches his campaign with Morton at the reigns. Mr Jelly receives female attention from his forward image consultant, Astrid Moore, prompting Bob to warn Heather she'll let a tiger out to play if she doesn't take him back. Heather knows Bob couldn't cheat on him no more than she could on him. Her theory is proved when a terrified Bob bails out a restaurant toilet window to escape Astrid's advances. Trudi finds herself in court...as Vietnamese interpreter. As the case unravels, the defendant is revealed to be Lewis' father. He traded identities with a crim and risks imprisonment just to see Trudi again and beg her to return home with him. Desperation drives Karen, too, when in a last ditch attempt to win Angus back, she learns to surf. At the eleventh hour Max confesses his true feelings for Laura but his words are soon upstaged by the fact they are careering downriver in an out-of-control dinghy. However, after a champagne drenched hen's night Laura, again, finds herself careering out of control...by foot, to the shack at the end of the beach.moreless

    Beautiful, passionate and terse episode. The scene between Max and Laura in the broken down dinghy where Max realises that he may have "fatally killed" any chance of a relationship was heart breaking and played beautifully by Sigrid Thornton and William McInnes. Ah, but the god of second chances smiles upon Max with that wild last scene set to latin music, with Laura stumbling into the shack with just enough alcohol in her veins to know sometimes the love of your life may not be the "sensible, punctual, nice to my mother" guy but the cynical and complex one "that has hard work written on his forehead".



    Best bits of the episode: -"Yea, slimy things did crawl with legs/ Upon the slimy sea". Even when Max is in the depths of despair he still can't resist stirring Laura.



    -Laura desperately trying to think of good things to say about Warwick. "He is sensible" "You said that already"

    ......."He's nice to my mother".



    -Karen learning to surf so that Angus and her can finally get married. Only in Pearl Bay does this logic make sense.



    -The wild look that Laura gives Max when she bursts into his place, half drunk on champagne. We really didn't need any dialogue here.....nor did Max.



    Bad bits of the episode: -Seriously, this is the second time a woman has cracked onto Bob. Why? I really can't suspend my disbelief that much.



    "Water, water, every where,

    And all the boards did shrink ;

    Water, water, every where,

    Nor any drop to drink."moreless
