    Is Sophie pregnant, or just hung over??

  • bobscoffee

    looks like she’s pregnant….

  • Rachel

    I picked this storyline ages ago.  Hopefully she actually has the baby, very few end up having them on the show!

    Tonight was boring too. I hope tomorrow makes up for it.

  • Rachel

    Everyone looks gorgeous in their frocks (Gabrielle totally looked like she was dressed for her wedding!) and it was the most classy Christmas function they’ve had in a while I think.

    The episode was terribly boring though.  I knew Tania would get up in front of everyone but it seemed so cliche to me?  And why didn’t anyone try to grab the mic from her?!?  (Was there a shot of Ben’s face at all too, I can’t remember?)

    I can hear a hundred people praying that the cliffhanger is Tania being run over by a car and killed.

    I personally thought that Tania went to far tonight.  Fair enough she is upset that Yvonne and Ben are together but at least he broke it off with her before he went after Yvonne.  I am not a fan of the Yvonne/Ben pairing but they didn’t deserve what they got tonight.  She needs to remember back to Mark and Maia and all the sneaking around they did behind her back.

    I personally thought that Tania went to far tonight…at least he broke it off with her before he went after Yvonne…they didn’t deserve what they got tonight.

    Completely agree – they didn’t do anything wrong really.  I guess they could have been more open about their feelings earlier, but really would a mother talk about that usually with her children?  Tania, Libby and Maia were always like “ew Mum” when she talked about her relationships in the past.  Tania’s acting like it’s incest, but it’s not!

    I can’t imagine tomorrow night’s episode being any more exciting. I originally thought maybe Oliver’s story would build to something big at the end of the year but that got resolved early on and now there’s nothing that exciting left unless something springs up tomorrow night.

    Judging from the preview for tonight’s episode and the bit that Good Morning showed when Hunter was on during the week I think I have a fair idea what may occur in tonight’s episode.

    Now as we saw in the preview Tania was walking down the driveway and I’m thinking that Rachel has already left the party by this point. Now what will happen is that Rachel will get behind the wheel and run down Tania.

    Whether she does a runner or she stops the car and see’s what she’s done is unclear to me, but knowing Rachel I’d presume it’ll be a hit and run.

    This, in turn, in 2010 will possibly see Ben and Yvonne re-evaluate things and see them break up only for Tania to realize (if she’s not gonna be killed off, of course) that her mother needs someone even if it is Ben and Yvonne will run after Ben and possibly either find him or she’ll just miss him by mere minutes.

    morgans a horny bitch who deserved to die

    How the hell would you feel is your Mum started dating your serious boyfriend behind your back? And the age gap has got to be at least 30 years. They only go ‘ew Mum’ when she goes into too much detail, they’re always very interested about who she’s dating. She has no excuse, she didn’t tell Tania because she was ashamed, and rightly so.

  • weza

    same guy morgans a bitch who deserved to die she stiol hot though

  • Anonymous

    the producers had another opportunity to kill off Tania in the season finale and they didn’t

    why why why ? she needs to die, not morgan.

    Karen Hit Morgan by the car  because sean was going to light the bar on fire which sophie is sleeping in  but Karen turned the car off  after he hit morgan and framed Rachel Machena

    But the thing is she didnt start dating ben until tania and ben had broken up. ben had no feelings for tania in the end and shes just being the “old tart” the way she is acting. Yvonne didnt tell tania because she was scard that this is how she would have acted and she didnt want to hurt her daughter. age does not mean a thing if its love. and if yvonne was ashamed she would have left that christmas party quicker than tania grabbing the mic.

  • Shorty Fann

    I kinda didnt like morgan when she pertrayed Gerald but I didnt expect her to go out like that??I missed that last episode but watched on Demand Tv….I think Sophie is pregnant??and I dont think kerin will get away with hitting morgan..Looks like sophie guna be a solo mama???
