Aaron is still the world’s worst stripper. I did like him doing his routine in front of his brother Mark, who was clearly uncomfortable. That was funny. Still, what stripper never takes his pants off?
Too bad they ended Will and David so quickly. I thought they had chemistry. Besides, it would have been more fun to have David get involved with a man who was bad for him and Aaron trying to break Will and David up… only for them closer.
Wow. I did not see the HIV revelation coming. I guess that’s what Stevie meant about something terrible happening to him in jail. Maybe he was raped and that’s how he was infected? Well, now that his mother knows it won’t be long before the entire town does. I guess we’re going to get a story about how people with HIV are treated, which is still relevant these days. Scarlett isn’t exactly the smartest, most open minded woman so much of that prejudice might come from her.
I do hope that Stevie told Robbie that he was HIV before they had sex, even if the show indicated that he hadn’t. And I pray we’re not leading to a story where Robbie is infected. We know that Gary Lamont is headed off the show. I hope that’s not part of his exit and it would be a horrible turn for Stevie’s character (and send a bad message to viewers about people with HIV). Or maybe Robbie’s drug addiction will be why he ultimately leaves town? I do think Robbie and Stevie have a bit of chemistry, which is too bad, as we know their relationship is doomed.
I’m hoping that the ultimate message will be that people with HIV can live lives just like everybody else and not have that play into every aspect of his storyline. Though from what we’ve seen Stevie has a lot more going on in his life than his status. For me though I haven’t been this interested in this show in a while. Stevie’s return has been a good decision thus far.
Well, at least the truth is out now. I thought for a minute David would be at the altar before it was revealed. While Dani found out from the worst most possible person, I liked that Sophie didn’t do it out of spite or revenge. She doesn’t like Dani, but she told her because she needed to know and Sophie knew what it felt like to be cheated on and have everybody else keep it from her. That was a nice bit.
I wonder if David will lose his job. I bet he doesn’t. Wyn is all about the money and he’s chosen that over family before. I have the feeling he doesn’t fire David and Dani will be furious.
I didn’t know that David and Dani’s father were brothers. They hardly ever play that relationship. That adds a nice wrinkle. It would be interesting if Dani’s father refused to turn on David or even took his side, creating havoc in the family.
Somebody should tell David that when you’re girlfriend finds out you’ve been cheating with another man for the past 6 months, you shouldn’t talk about how much you’ve suffered.
Now that the truth is out, I’m looking forward to seeing how David and Rhys exist in that small town as a gay couple. I have a feeling it won’t be easy.
