That's interesting. I didn't know that. 

Do we know which stories were truncated due to COVID? The show seems to have short plots anyway...I wonder about that Wai and Marty story. 

I guess Esther's maternity leave must have been sometime last year. 

Actually we haven't yet seen any of the COVID truncated storylines yet, production would've ceased on August 17 and if they were 8 weeks behind then it means that we won't see the effects for another three weeks or so. Ngahuia likely had her baby sometime after August 17 as well. I expect that in roughly three weeks time we'll see Esther leave abruptly.

Anyway, the good news is that production of the show will most likely resume Wednesday

Ah, thanks. So I guess they were planning to do a Marty/Esther pairing and then they had to rapidly change course with Esther's pregnancy. That might also explain why Monique is back.

I don't know if that's the case but actually yeah that would make sense; i.e they were planning a Marty/Esther pairing then Ngahuia got pregnant so they wrote it in and made it Curtis' for all the longtime fans of that very popular pairing with Monique being brought back to keep Marty occupied while Esther's pregnancy plays out.
