DIANNE BUTLER OUT OF THE BOX
CARMEL’S definitely leaving. Tomorrow. Susan would like to believe her this time. She gives her a speech about her husband and the house and blah blah, but Susan’s wandered off. She’s thinking about the ‘‘ fun’’ run for
Vanessa and baby Pa- trick. Carmel laughs in her face — a marathon in the middle of summer? They ask Karl for his thoughts, a lethal mistake. (I sense Lucas is starting to lose interest in sitting vigil at the hospital and Vanessa is veering back towards Rhys again). That Sheila’s a canny old biddy. She’s outfoxing Tash, who’s pretty wily herself. I’m loving Colette Mann.
