Boy oh boy, talk about keep a girl guessing. For those who don’t know, I usually watch each episode in advance so I can write these posts and have them ready for you bright and early Thursday morning.
Not this week. There was a total media ban on previewing last night’s episode. Scroll on down for the debrief. No spoilers up here at the top.
What I will talk about here are some of the outfits Nina wore in this episode – without the prep time I usually have, I don’t have a “recreate the look” outfit for you. What I do have are some links to some of the beautiful jewellery pieces and as I find out more about the others, I’ll add those in.
I’d like to also congratulate Carlie Wiltshire from New South Wales. Carlie is the winner of our Primness jacket competition. Thanks to all those who entered – this sueded silk jacket is SOMETHING ELSE.
Nina wore it again last night – over this outfit.
The de-brief (spoiler alert)
That was some episode, yes? I do feel that Network Ten should have provided a warning at the beginning, though.
As Nina said to her patient, Shanti, after telling her her baby didn’t have a heart beat: “There’s no good side to this.”
The stillbirth scene was handled beautifully – and it is a topic that SHOULD be addressed and talked about more often – but I think for parents who have lost their own children, this would have been incredibly tough to witness. There was a notice at the end of the episode about how Sands can help but I think notice should have been given upfront, giving people the chance to opt out. My thoughts, what say you?
And just like the rollercoaster of emotions that Offspring generally brings us, the downward drop was replaced by a lofty high.
Nina is PREGNANT.
That was the big secret that put a media ban on previews of the show. And here was I thinking/hoping that Darcy was coming back from the “dead” (he’s still in the opening credits #justsaying #imholdingoutforamiracle). Over on the Styling You Facebook page, the money was on Dr Chris coming back on the scene.
But there you go, we’ve got another Proudman baby on the way. What will cheeky, yoghurt-throwing Zoe have to say about that.
Meanwhile in other Offspring developments …
Cherie has been pushed into a new side career, that of an erotic fiction writer after Clegg sent off her steamy writings to a publisher. One in the Bush. Two in the Heart … coming to all good bookstores soon.
Billie runs into her ex-boyfriend, Hugh (played by Vince Colosimo). They go out to dinner and in a full-circle-of-life moment, Billie realises “the people who we were don’t exist any more”. She also realises she stuffed it with Dan and that she really likes him.
Will doesn’t let Jimmy off lightly on the party pash and a prod situation but comes around after Jimmy sticks it to Marjorie during a round-table intervention, an intervention required because Marjorie wiped out Will’s business bank account to bribe her drug suppliers.
So tell me, what was your highlight from last night’s episode? Favourite outfit?
