- Gail to Sarah "Good, i hope you go!" (get her own place)
- Carla "Why did he have to make me hate him before he died?" (but she didn't, did she?)
- The ladies "To the single life" (and not one of them seem too enthused)
- Ken "The things you think you want and the things you actually do" (story of his life, innit?)
- Audrey "Is that all you've got to say for yourself?" David "Whoops."
Well they said prepare yourself so it was no suprise that Paul died of his injuries. The feline was let out of the sack by Carla and now everyone knows Leanne was no property developer and half the street weren't even all that surprised that she had resorted to escorting. Not only is everyone shocked at Paul's death but at the news about Leanne who has lost everything yet again. I didn't remember that Michelle didn't go to the hospital initially but i am glad Steve persuaded her to go in the end. She would have regretted it if she hadn't. As angry as Carla was with him, she did still love him and in spite of all their ups and downs, she's devastated. Liam is in bits too and feeling like it was punishment for the Dean thing. Didn't i just say that last week?
Some nice scenes with Jamie and Liam. The gossip has hit the cobbles and the grapevines are fair burning up with the excitement. Must have been so hard fo Liam to go into the office at the factory and see Paul's empty chair. Excellent girlfight on the cobbles. Janice always does hold her own even though Kelly was almost twice as tall. Loved Steve and Lloyd watching and snickering. Also liked Leanne standing right up to Kelly and Kelly basically having nothing more to say. Steve is developing a nice rapport with Ryan, isn't he?
Sue and Jerry seem to be really good friends, not just to Claire and Ashley for donating their services cleaning up the house, but to each other too. Looks like Jerry may be more interested than just friendship. Kirk is still heartbroken about Fiz and Chesney's the spy, trying to find out if there's anyone else. And Roy! Imagine him being the one that actually bluffed Ashley and Claire into the house to see the redecoration! Didn't think he'd have it in him!
I think Sarah *should* go and get her own place with Jason. She makes a wage and he does as well. Surely they could afford something a bit better than a dump between them. David only wrote one exam because Amber dared him to, more or less. Saving face, really. Looks like he's not planning on writing any of the rest. David basically put words in Gail's mouth as an excuse so that he could dig his heels in and not do the exams so she's decided to bribe him to take the exams. That really is a stupid idea. At least he didn't drag it out or scam it out of her. Gail isn't willing to accept it though. So much for Gail thinking she's been to soft. Threatening and promising to make David take the exams? So let's see, David did a biology exam and a geography exam and then burned the geography one. Well he never told his mother he wouldn't write it, he just never said what he'd do with it after that. Gail thinks he's turned a corner? SOPOD alert! Talk about going down in flames! Gail keeps threatening to wash her hands of David but she never does. What he really needs is to be chucked out. Tough love. Odd that Jason would defend David. Maybe he's right. Give David the space he needs and the harder you push, the harder he'll push back. They probably think thick Jason couldn't possibly have advice worth taking but he's the only one that's really talking sense. But it's the reason Gail is going to let Jason move in. Jason will get to be a big brother sort of mentor to David, or try to. Maybe it could do David some good. Maybe it's too late.
Looks like Chesney is going to be the eco warrior for the 21st century! Not getting much support from Cilla as per usual. Fiz really needs to be honest with Kirk but by the time he finds out, he's going to find out the wrong way, especially now that Chesney has seen them kiss. Eileen seems to be having a flirtation with a customer over the phone. Bethany's turning 7! You may not realize that the date in the UK for the birthday party episodes was June 11. Bethany's birthday always used to be June 4. I wonder if they'll make any mention of the death of Kevin's baby boy. Nope.
Ken seems to be wearing out his welcome with Daniel who doesn't seem to inclined or interested in getting to know his father. The little lad playing Daniel is quite good though, isn't he? Also looks like Ken's starting to really miss Deirdre. He wasn't too pleased when he saw Deirdre apparently having a laugh and just getting on with things without him. Bit of an "ouch" when Daniel called Ken his granddad in front of his mate. Denise kept trying to encourage him to get back with Deirdre but when it seemed he just wasn't interested, she decided to make a pass, which really seemed to come out of the blue, didn't it? But that's red wine for you! Still, it was nice to see her apologize for how she treated him when the baby was born. I always laugh at Ken when he gets into situations like this. He really does have that "deer caught in the headlights" look.
And it sent him running back to Deirdre. Deirdre and Eileen didn't want to be along with Blanche so ended up sitting with Doreen and Rita. Kind of makes a bit more of a buffer for all of Blanche's barbs about Ken's absence. Blanche seems to go back and forth between defending Ken and then Deirdre. Must be whichever way the wind blows. Now Ken decides to move back in with out talking to her, assuming she'll take him back and will the flowers help? She's out getting drunk and flirting with waiters. Yep, the flowers helped. For all her vitriol, Blanche really was worried about the two of them. She just can't seem to help herself. It's good to see them back together again.
Laughed at Blanche losing on the scratch ticket and Wilf winning the one she would have bought if he'd bought his first. That's so typical isn't it, with lotteries?
I very likely won't be posting comments next week as i may not have puter access on Saturday and then i'm away for a couple of weeks after that so the next time you will hear from me will probably be the end of the month.
