Gail remembers. she does. David's running scared, putting off the inevitable. Tina can't handle it and she dumps David. David thinks his mother is going to think he deliberately tried to kill her which he didn't. And didn't i tell you? Gail isn't going to turn him over to the cops, she's blaming herself. David's plan is to just continue to deny, deny, deny. Mother's gone, doesn't believe him. Tina's gone. David is very alone. I have to admit Jack P. Shepherd went a bit over the top with that dead eyed look at his mother, he's a pretty good actor most of the time but that just didn't work for me. Gail pushed and pushed and pushed until he broke. For once, he didn't have the bravado, the anger to get up and walk away. His guilt made him sit there and take it and he finally admitted it. She thinks she can help him, that they can work it out but his guilt just won't let him. He needs help and he's hit bottom. You know, David wreaked havoc across the street and all those men just stood around and watched him. He was just sitting downthere for awhile, they could have had him easily. Yes he had a pipe or something but sheer numbers should have been able to overwhelm him and he wasn't in *that* much of a wild frenzy. The only one brave enough was mild mannered Ken at first and the only one to really try to stop him was Jerry until the police got there! They all looked ridiculous stood there watching.
Gail in the aftermath. Blaming Audrey because she overcompensates? Blaming Audrey for her bad choices resulting in her own. She and Audrey drinking gin and arguing over whether a mother's love is unconditional. It probably is but you don't have to like your kid. I'm going for the reincarnation of Ivy Tilsley, meself. Some excellent stuff between mother and daughter. Gail should be getting help for David yet she really doesn't seem to want to believe the worst, even when presented with the evidence. And all the things he admitted to, she still never asked why! I don't understand Gail. She insists to David that he pushed her down the stairs. Now when he's admitted it, she wants to know why he did because nobody else had to know and she's not going to testify. She continues to be the problem and she wonders why David is the way he is. David pleaded guilty and wants to give it all up and Gail was still fighting him every step of the way. He knows he needs to pay for what he's done wrong and maybe he really will start to turn his life around. If Gail will let him. What's she going to say in court? Stay tuned.
Dev gets disrespected by Amber because he's an idiot, not because she's trying to look cool. uh oh, i think Harry's got eyes for Liz! Roy's taken to examining poo. Apparently, bat poo. Nobody should be surprised he's got bats in the belfry. If they're working practically next door to the cafe/ butcher shop, then will those buildings have bats too? If the bats are going to stop the building project, Tony is going to have to find a way to circumvent the problem. Looks like he's hoping Jason will tak up his suggestion to smoke them out. Why do the builders seem to behave as if Tony is the site foreman or owner of the new building when as far as we know, he's just an investor. Fastest way to embarrass Roy? Either talk about women's problems, or confront him with evidence that you're having sex right under his nose. Roy was a good man and extended the hand of compromise to Becky and Becky will be willing to give a little as well. We hope.
The builders have gone and got a gig and are leaving the job half done. Vernon has thought about the consequences. Not done anything about it, mind you, but thought about it. He just figures Karma will come up with an idea. I think someone else is going to come up with an idea and he's not going to be happy about it.
Michelle is missing Alex. Steve goes to find him and he makes Steve pay him a tenner for talking to him. Noooooooooooooooooo! Make him go away! He's a nasty little skeeve. It's a wonder Michelle can move her fingers with that huge black ring on one of them. Steve takes a lot of advantage of Michelle, she takes a lot of the responsibility for Amy and now she's doing his VAT forms. Michelle is well on her way to being the same sort of mother Gail is and Vera was, making excuses for bad behaviour.
I bet Roger is very glad he got his money back before the restaurant went up in smoke. Janice is funny. She's not got a lot of morals but she does have some. She was very against Leanne's hooking and she might do a scam for money but she wouldn't contenance Leanne burning a restaurant for money. Leanne wasn't long without a job, should have guessed Monkey Boy would give her a job, much to Harry's chagrin. Leanne needs to be really careful with Paul and she's not being.
Lauren sure backed off quick after moaning about no hot water when Eileen pointed out that she'd not paid her rent anyway. Jason couldn't keep his eyes off that towel! She moans and complains, and wraps everyone around her manicured little finger and the sooner she goes away the sooner i'll be happy. She couldn't walk all over Liz for an advance and she's bled Darryl dry. She tried to get him to steal from Jerry and when he wouldn't, she dropped him cold. She's like that, she only uses people for her own means and i hate her i hate her i hate her.
