Episode 13.4: Cliffhangers

Monday 20th February 2017 at The Wardrobe Theatre.

Gina is sad and drunk because she’s not heard from Bid Dick. Dick’s been busy fulfilling his death contract to Fred and now, high up on the cliffs outside Newtown, Billy hangs on for dear life. In desperation, Candi (who is also dangling there after trying to help save Billy) reveals that she is Dick’s long-lost niece and the astonished Dick hoists them both back to safety – they shall all be Johnsons now!

Reg is low but in a nearby travel lodge bonds with AJ (back in Newtown to settle down) who swears to stand up to anyone who hurts his new best friend. Meanwhile, Harold is having an awkward tea date with Pablo. Nervous electricity crackles between them but they agree to take things slow. Later as Harold strolls the cliffs, AJ jumps out and appears to kick Harold over the cliff edge!

Memorable Moments:

  • Harold being teased mercilessly by Gina about sharing a teabag with Pablo.
  • AJ and Reg excitedly playing Buckaroo.
  • Several references to the Johnson genes calling out between Candi and Big Dick.

Will Harold survive being Buckaroo’d off the cliffs by AJ?
How will Candi and Billy find life as a Johnson?
Is this the beginning of something between Pablo and Harold?
