CASE OF THE LOVE BUG

Billy and Arlo cre­ate din­ner ta­ble drama on 800 Words

TV Soap - - Inside -

As Arlo’s wing­man in Weld, Billy’s seen and heard a lot he likes about his mate, but there’s also a few things he ac­tively dis­likes. Namely Arlo’s lat­est love tri­an­gle with Lind­say and Poppy, in which he’s play­ing both girls off against each other. Af­ter putting up with the dra­mas, Billy’s nally had a gut­ful.

Feel­ing stressed out by Arlo’s (Ben­son Jack An­thony) lat­est an­tics, Billy (Reon Bell) is ready to tear his hair out in frus­tra­tion. Sens­ing the bad vibes be­tween his son and Billy, Ge­orge (Erik Thom­son) steps into the breach and or­gan­ises a fam­ily din­ner to raise morale be­tween the boys.

Af­ter all, if Ge­orge’s ro­man­tic re­la­tion­ship with Billy’s mother Katie (Anna Jul­li­enne) con­tin­ues as swim­mingly as it has been, Arlo and Billy could soon be re­lated!

Un­for­tu­nately, Ge­orge’s best-laid plans come un­stuck upon ar­rival at the boat club when the boys spy Lind­say (Manon Black­man) and Poppy (Jes­sica Red­mayne) nearby. Build­ing bridges is soon the last thing on the menu for the teens as Arlo and Billy’s stress lev­els rapidly es­ca­late! Sud­denly, the ar­rival of his meal sends poor Billy into such a spin that he faints face- rst into his bowl of pasta!

Once Billy’s safely laid up at home, talk turns to the pos­si­ble cause of his sud­den col­lapse. Wor­ried, Ge­orge pre­sumes

he’s to blame be­cause he may be putting too much pres­sure on the boys to ac­cept he and Katie as a cou­ple. They could be mov­ing too fast, too soon.

Katie con­curs, re­mem­ber­ing that Billy’s suf­fered sim­i­lar symp­toms be­fore. The last time he re­acted this way was when she and his fa­ther Zac (Rob Wil­liams) were break­ing up...

To make mat­ters worse for his and Arlo’s par­ents, Billy point blank re­fuses to say

what’s trou­bling him, in­stead choos­ing to lash out at Arlo again and de­mand that he ends his ro­mance with at least

one of his girl­friends! TVS
