I wonder if Steph's cancer has been forgotten or if she will be empathising with Lucas and getting closer to him that way?

decaffwithcream Sun 12-May-13 18:55:21

That sounds a little nasty but I am assuming we are meant to see her as "evil Steph" after Lucas now. I suppose I should watch the web episodes of her in therapy to check.

AnneEyhtMeyer Sun 12-May-13 20:37:34

Where are the web episodes? I haven't seen them.

She's always been "Evil Steph" to me, she was always happy to do anything she wanted, even if it hurt her best friends and family.

SpanishFly Sun 12-May-13 20:51:47

Theyre on the channel 5 website. I haven't watched them yet tho

AnneEyhtMeyer Sun 12-May-13 21:23:43

Oh thanks, I'll take a look.

BeanoNoir Mon 13-May-13 14:13:44

Anyone watching the daytime episode?

SpanishFly Mon 13-May-13 16:40:55

I'm watching now

Willabywallaby Mon 13-May-13 16:48:15

I watched it, she looks so puffyshock

BeanoNoir Mon 13-May-13 17:14:13

It's a bit of a shock

SpanishFly Mon 13-May-13 17:29:13

It shows the difference between UK and Australian prisons - you'd never get botox in the UK

I reckon Steph's need to appropriate other womens' boyfriends all stems from her wedding day to Marc when she realised he was having an affair with her sister.

<ignores fact that Steph originally fell for Drew when he was with Libby before that>

I love how steph mentioned today that the renovations were going great. Then the next scene was in Harolds, with no evidence of any renovations being done at all.

And I did laugh when she called it "renos"

TwllBach Wed 15-May-13 17:41:05

Did sonya know steph before?

ShipwreckedAndComatose Wed 15-May-13 17:58:13

I think Sonya was around when Steph was there.

I seemed to remember Toadie pretending to date Steph (can't remember why) but secretly with Sonya and she had to keep it hush hush. Toadie and Steph were in a sham relationship and Sonya was in on it.

Katz Wed 15-May-13 19:00:26

Sonya def knows Steph, at the whole fake wedding thing toady said he vows to Sonya not Steph.

decaffwithcream Wed 15-May-13 19:03:10

It was when Toadie and Steph were pretending to be together and even have a wedding so they could say Dan's baby was Toadie's when he was born. All to spare Libby's feelings since she hadn't been able to have a baby with Dan and now they had split up (Steph and Dan had a one night stand after he left Libby and she saw Libby kissing Lucas, despite Libby knowing Steph was in love with Lucas).

Steph let Sonya in on it so Toadie wouldn't lose Sonya.

My God, that insane plotline dragged on for months. Then Paul found out and recorded Steph and Dan talking on the phone about the baby and played it on the loudspeakers in Charlies when everyone was there. Now that was good TV. grin Paul was getting revenge on Toadie I think?

Katz Wed 15-May-13 19:09:18

It was the worst storyline ever!

KittyMcAllister Wed 15-May-13 19:48:17

Never mind the Botox that Steph's obviously had - what about the chipmunk cheeks?!! And I had forgotten all about that storyline with her & Toadie & the baby and her just giving it to Dan..,bizarre! Did I detect a frisson between her & Paul (say it isn't so?)

ShipwreckedAndComatose Wed 15-May-13 19:50:28

Ah yes!! That was it!

To hide the baby from Libby!

What happened to the baby??

GibberTheMonkey Wed 15-May-13 19:50:30

It was weird

Surely you say we had a one night stand, we didn't mean to end up wih a baby.
And if Libby complains point out quite was she had been doing

All that convoluted cover up was so not worth it

SpanishFly Wed 15-May-13 19:52:59

I was really looking forward to her coming back but I'm hating it now. It's all false and awkward and weird. And I don't like her darker hair.

She's not going to steal Patrick, is she?

TwllBach Wed 15-May-13 20:03:27

There was a definite baby stealing glint in her eye!

ShipwreckedAndComatose Wed 15-May-13 20:11:05

Yes I got baby stealing/ Lucas stealing vibes.

Love the none too subtle scene where the police guy dropped in that she had been turned down for parole previously...thus hinting at possible mad, bad Steph developments.

Now all we need is for her to start shagging Paul and its a perfect storyline!

KittyMcAllister Wed 15-May-13 20:21:19

The fake marriage thing was a typical Neighbours unnecessary cover-up: mistake happens, instead of being honest cover it up with a bizarre & convoluted lie, which is actually a lot more hurtful to a lot more people than the original mistake - which comes out anyway!

decaffwithcream Wed 15-May-13 20:24:19

She gave the baby up to Dan Shipwrecked, and Lucas mentioned the other day that Dan and ?Jack are happy/doing well in New Zealand. (and her other ex is in Fiji with her other son - they do travel far, Steph's men).

It was all the "we must protect poor Libby stuff" that was so endlessly annoying.

I'm now convinced that the only reason Rhiannon is still around is so that Steph can't move into Kyle's room-for-rent. Obviously she has to move into someone's house where she can create more tension. At least it can't be Lucas and Vanessa's place as we now know it has shrunk to a one-bed wink
