I just watched yesterdays repeat, and was wondering this few months ago, when he was constantly reminding Max that there friend wants money,

Is he lying about it, is he basically ripping him off?

The hypocrite bangs on about faamily and sticking together. So much for caring, eh? He's willing to steal just to entertain himself at his brother's expense. Death is a fitting punishment.

I cant say hes ripping him off, he basically just took his money then gived it all back to pay drinks for everyone. He just likes danger and trouble

Max gave Derek that money to pay off his debt. Derek has no right to use the money himself, regardless of what he's doing with it. Ergo, Derek IS ripping Max off.

Well, if we see plenty of other chases before he kicks the bucket I may start loving EE again.

Does Derek know the money was meant to be deposited on Max's honeymoon? (Well, it seemed Tanya thought Max was going to book a vacation with the money lying around)

I don't think he gets through a bottle a day. Ten, maybe but not one.

So the gangsters never wanted money to begin with then?

I guess Max's secret involves something that can't be repaired with money. Like murder or paralysis.

Yes, As Maurice said Derek is scum. All the money Max has given to him to pay off his debts Derek has pocketed for himself only so he has that hold over Max, so he can control him.
I can't wait for Derek to die, I hope its a painful death.

Max should have paid the money himself to the thugs.

A life for a life? They should've taken Derek's in revenge.

If Max was to die within a year I can't say I'd miss him too much.

I don't really mind when Derek controls and makes a fool out of his own family (I don't really like any of them to be honest) , but it's when he taunts old women on their death bed and picks on people because they're dating his daughter - that's when I really dislike him. So I say, continue on, Derek .

I think the point is the thugs do want the money, when they don't get it they'll go for Max.

My guess is that will happen some time next year, coinciding with Tanya's departure. Yet another crappy ending for the crappy couple.

I did think it was odd when Derek was being chased and beaten up; it seemed like it was the first time they had seen him since whatever the "incident" was.

Obviously if Derek had merely been pocketing the money, that would explain it.

Me too .

If this secret of his turns out to be shocking, it might give the character some extra mileage that he needs. If not, then it won't be long before he's following Derek out.

Agreed. But first, we need to rid ourselves of Jack and Joey.
