Shortland Street LogoWelcome to tonight’s recap/discussion thread for Shortland Street., where the kids are all growing up.

Tonight on Shorty:

-Chris feels really sorry for Harry now that it has been revealed Pixie has cancer. He also did a pretty shitty job of backing Rachel up when she tried to tell Harry to not rush into things with Pixie.

-Pixie’s dad Mo got really agro at Harry, telling him to stay away from his daughter. Later Chris went to see him and offered support, which was accepted.

-Victoria is back and still refusing to accept that she was rightfully suspended. Garrett gets a surgery opportunity from Boyd and Victoria manages to snaffle it off him by telling him how much it means to her, as it is a connection to her sick father.

-As Victoria and Garrett get ready to go into surgery Boyd reveals to Garrett that “Tor’s” father has died. Garret convinces him to wait until after the surgery to tell her. Victoria is happy when she does well, but is crushed by Boyd’s bad news.

-Pania (once again) showed her true colours as a scheming, manipulator. Jealous of Kylie’s place in TK and Tillie’s lives, she sets out to sabotage the relationship. First, she TOLD kylie that TK wanted more kids – stat. Then when that failed to do any damage she tampered with a note TK left Kylie, which contained details of when Tillie was to be picked up. The time rolls around and it is Pania who shows up with Tillie, who still wants to play with “Princess Kylie”.

-Clementine, still not Pania’s biggest fan, helped Kylie to uncover Pania’s deceit and TK was furious, telling Pania to stay away from him and his daughter.


There will be no recap tomorrow as I will be out of wi-fi range.
