TV Recap: Rake, S3E7

Richard Roxburgh as Cleaver Greene_93997141

Richard Roxburgh as Cleaver Greene_93997141Oh dear! Roger’s (Martin Sacks) completely lost his shit.

The day of the wedding has now turned into a siege; the police are outside as Roger waves his pistol around and there, of course, is Cleave (Richard Roxburgh) making it so much worse with that smart mouth of his.  Roger’s defense, now caught out as a drug dealer to professional athletes is very clear:

Would you prefer Lance Armstrong didn’t win seven Tour De France titles?

Wendy (Caroline Brazier) is now staying with Cleave and following the stress she suffered, after the wedding shenanigans; she has woken up speaking Indonesian.  No one can understand a word she’s saying.  Poor dear Wendy.

Meanwhile, Cleave is defending Fuzz (Keegan Joyce)on the ‘blood diamonds’ charge, only to find out (when he get him off) that Fuzz and Patience had manipulated the outcome so Patience could start her own political party in Zurich.

After much compromise Scarlett (Danielle Cormack) and Barney (Russell Dykstra) finally decide to call it quits once and for all on their marriage when Barney is caught with his pants down in the bathroom, again, with Nicole (Kate Box) and Scarlett decides she wants David (Matt Day) instead of the tangled web of a life she has created with Barney.

In the background, the one hundred and twenty million dollars fraud case is going on and things aren’t looking good for the defendant (Tom Hobbes).

Lucky for Cleave, Kirsty has decided to buy him out for the restaurant and call all old debts even.  But something seems a bit funky….

Also funky is Cal McGregor (Damien Garvey) and his ego, that will seemingly be his downfall.

With only one episode to go let’s hope all of the loose ends become tied and that our unlucky Cleave can find some happiness, only for it to be torn from him and the last second in an unexpected mishap that will make us all smile.

Rake is on ABC1 8:30pm Sunday night
