Geraldine’s new lover causes a rift in the family in the lead-up to a do-over wedding for Will and Kerry
Geraldine’s new lover causes a rift in the clan, on Offspring.
The revelation that Geraldine is dating Phil D’Arabont has sent shockwaves through the Proudman clan. Nina, Billie and Jimmy are furious about the news given that Phil was their late father’s nemesis.
It still isn’t that long since Darcy’s (John Waters) death and the wounds are still raw. Phil (David Roberts) isn’t Geraldine’s (Linda Cropper) rst lover since Darcy but he seems to be more serious than the fun she had with Renato (Luciano Martucci) and Marjorie (Sarah Peirse).
And though they have had their grudges and frustrations with one another there seems to be a spark between them.
So Geraldine might well be on the way to happiness with the larger-than-life Phil unless her children put an end to it. Nina (Asher Keddie), Billie (Kat Stewart) and Jimmy (Richard Davies) are so distraught by the idea of Phil that they are holding crisis talks.
They soon realise they might have to put their feelings aside for the sake of Geraldine but Billie will take the most convincing. She was much impacted by Phil’s actions years ago when he destroyed Darcy’s real estate business, where she worked.
But it’s time for a celebration. Will (TJ Power) and Kerry (Ash Ricardo) got married while on their romantic weekend away and Billie wants to hold a “non-wedding” for them. However Kerry seems unsettled, leading Will to question whether she regrets their decision. Ultimately she reveals a heartbreaking secret that she worries might affect his feelings for her.
Romantic troubles are also on Billie’s mind as she works out how to deal with Dan (Jeremy Lindsay Taylor). She really likes him but they’ve spent so much time playing games with each other that she is wondering whether they can make an actual go of it.
Dan is also into Billie but has been as much of a driving force in their strange interactions as she has. Could there actually be a deeper connection if they gave up the silliness? It might just be that Dan’s ability to match Billie’s ery side means he is the right man for her. But to nd out they will have to decide to put the hijinks aside and give it a proper go. Can they make it work?
Meanwhile, Nina continues to struggle with what she wants for her career. She’s considered many possibilities lately including clinical research. And while being acting head of obstetrics left her frazzled and overwhelmed she still applied for the permanent position.
Unfortunately Nina was unsuccessful and is now wondering what that means for her future. There are many options to consider for her next move. Will she make the right decision?
At least things with Harry (Alexander England) seem to be going well though there have been some hiccups meeting Harry’s family. His sister Kirsty (Adrienne Pickering) is especially not keen on Nina but there seems to be some progress, with Harry accepting an invitation to Will and Kerry’s vow renewal. Does this mean the Crewes are ready to accept Nina and the Proudmans?
Nina, Billy and Jimmy are so distraught by the idea of Phil that they are holding crisis talks.
NO-GO MAN Geraldine (Linda Cropper) is dating Phil D’Aranbon (David Roberts), her late husband’s enemy, much to the fury of her children.
LONG LIVE LOVE Will (TJ Power) and Kerry (Ash Ricardo) got married on a romantic weekend away but Will later worries that Kerry might have regrets.
