Maria made it to the church on time at least. Don't church bells make it sound so much more mournful? It seems awfully brutal to get the parent to carry the wee coffin. Well, Carla seemed to have a hard time pulling herself away and there she was, sitting alone. And you know, i heard something in the background that almost sounded like a baby crying but i think it was ducks. So sad hearing Liam talk to the baby at the grave, about his uncle Paul, his namesake. Maria almost made it home. Liam was pretty stroppy the next day though. He's biting Maria's head off and it's clear he's still angry with her. So what does she do? more or less blame him because of the stress she was under due to her own jealousy. And then the object of that jealousy turns up at the door like she always seems to and in the end Liam admitted to kissing Carla before he and Maria were together. He's trying to be honest, she's just shot off into the stratosphere of Planet Unreasonable and no wonder, he's crap at explaining things. God this kind of contrived writing is painful.
What i really wanted Maria to do when Carla asked how the split came about was to haul off and slap her lol After Maria left, the sparks nearly jumped across the road between Carla and Liam even though he was glaring at her. No surprise he ended up at Carla's, dripping wet and even the rain didn't put out the fire. Maria cooled down when Fiz talked sense but it was too late. The deed is done and caught on camera by Rosie the Raptor. Now it's just a matter of time before that little escapade comes out. Rosie's got the upper hand on not only Liam and Carla but Tony too, made even more tenuous when Maria went grovelling back to Liam and his guilt is going to take her back, you can see that coming a mile away. She's a desperate little thing, isn't she? Yes Maria, you *were* playing games, wanting Liam to come running after you and it made you come up sharply when he didn't. And of course, Liam isn't going to tell her about his two nights with Carla.
Is it just me or do you think Becky and Jason make a cute couple? I'm not so sure Jason thinks so. He runs hot and cold though at least Eileen likes Becky. Makes a change. Poor Roy seems caught in the middle. He'd made a lot more sense if he spoke regular English LOL All Jason really caught was "You are a married man!" But after Jason put off Becky, (and you notice she went home and did the same thing Jason did, bath, tea, telly) Roy was ready to unban J. from the cafe. Too late. Not only is Julie way OTT when it comes to reigning in her emotions, or lack thereof, she's firing on all guns playing Mum to Chesney and that's not going over well with Fiz though i expect Ches loves the attention.
Why does Sean want Marcus to retrain all of a sudden? Why does Marcus want to? Contrived reason? So that Marcus and Sean can move in together. She'll be rolling in the dosh from all the rent. Tina's mother seems a bit brittle. No matter that we didn't see Tina and her mother together before now, you can tell they obviously have been at loggerheads a long time. Looks like Tina is going to be around awhile. Molly wants to take the stone cladding down!!! Eeek!!!
Gail hopes that most of the boys in the youth offenders will grow up to be upstanding young men. Not too likely. I do like Gail and Tina's rapport. Gail's made contact! With Ted, that is. I can well imagine how nervous she must be but he's lovely and it went really well, even with Tina in there as a gooseberry. I gotta say though Gail really went overboard on the mascara in anticipation. And what do you know and it's not as if you didn't guess, Ted is gay! His late partner that died was a James not a "Jane". Poor Gail didn't know where to put herself. You'd think working in a health clinic, having nearly had a gay son-in-law and living on the street with Sean, she'd come across all sorts of people and would know how to address one rather than say "i thought you were normal". Ouch. Tina just automatically accepted it but it sounded like she hadn't known anyone personally that was gay before either. She was bubbling with curiosity and enjoyed winding Audrey up. It was all quite amusing. I do like Ted, though. I think he's going to be an element of stability in all the Platt lives. He's got the measure of David too and I bet he earns David's grudging respect in the end because he's not going to take any of David's crap.
We keep hearing about Clarissa, the bookie's ex-wife. Now she's got a name, we're bound to meet her. Sally's already starting to pick apart the Peacock house, probably hoping to influence the evaluator to a lower price. 98K for the little house and 123k for the big one. The girls seem pleased with the switch as well. They'll have their own rooms! 25K difference but Claire doesn't seem too happy.
Natasha, a new stylist, and she's saying her last place of work was old fashioned run by a woman nearly 60. Um.
