Sunday Canadian Corrie Comments, January 1
Super Stella not only gives out free drinks but she's a dab hand with armed burglars too. I am curious though, why she was in the betting shop to start with if it was closing time and Leanne was cashing up. She seemed more interested in talking to Leanne than putting a bet on and she doesn't see the gambling type anyway. There's definitely something up though, why would she steal a photo of Leanne from the pegboard?
So Peter wants to do something amazing for Leanne's 30th birthday and they're going to have a do in the Rovers? Amazing. Peter looked inside Stella's wallet, something he had no need to do really except he was nosy and the plot device had to have him discover the photo so that he can find out Stella's secret... she's Leanne's bio mother and you can well imagine how Leanne's going to take that! And i have to say, i don't think very much of the actress's emotional "acting"... it was really awful!
Becky, meanwhile, is holed up in a posh hotel at Steve's expense, drinking and partying. Steve can't talk her down and neither could Roy and Hayley but the hotel security did their job finally after how many days of her causing disturbances? Guess she's moving in with Roy and Hayley, then. She claps eyes on Karl and latches on to him but he's not overly interested in spite of her octopus hands in the pub. Good lad. But her trying to make Steve jealous backfired. Just when she decides she might be able to forgive him, he's decided to divorce her.
Becky's party drove Norris, Emily, Ken and Deirdre out and into the Bistro. I always got the impression the Flying Horse and Weathy arms are not that far, why didn't they just go there? Ken got so desperate he cut off the end of the power cord but we saw Tyrone fixing it the next day, just in case you missed that, when Becky was dealing with that stroppy delivery man. And I can't actually blame her for going off on one on him. She did apologize and he had no reason to have such a hissy fit. Obvious plot device, really.
I was afraid Sylvia would be horrible about it and she was at first, but it's hard for someone to get their head around that at first, I would think someone from that generation even more so. I loved that Roy stood up to his mother and defended Hayley and naturally Becky would give her hell too.
Sunita refused Dev's proposal flat out and he's not happy about it. Her aunties are shaking things up, and pressing his insecurity buttons. She knows it too. At that, the aunties have retreated back to India and not before time. They were funny the first time around but a bit tedious this time.
Frank seems to be good for the Underworld business but Carla fell apart on the very day an important buyer came to check out the business. Getting the news your mother died can do that to you. Carla can put a front on but she's pretty soft underneath and add a dose of guilt and you've got a mess in stilettos. Doesn't Carla's mother live down near London? She mentioned visiting her when she went there for business. I guess she'll have a long drive on the motorway on the day of the funeral but she seemed to have got there and back in no time so perhaps her mother was buried locally.
Peter's sure jumping to Carla's defence. That doesn't sit well with Leanne and I don't blame her. Peter's in a hard place, though, with Carla needing a shoulder after her mother died. What's a bloke to do? Hand her over to Frank, that's what. And wasn't Nick smug? He really does have the most slappable face, that one. Carla was pretty bladdered after the funeral and she didn't remember a lot of it but gave Norris the sharp end of her tongue when he was trying to poke his nose in. Maria also got all over Carla's business and she should have kept out of it too. Carla knows what Maria accused Frank of so it's her decision whether or not to get involved. Looks like Frank may indeed fancy Carla.
Sean and Dylan are finding a 4 year old boy a bit of a challenge. Marcus seems a lot more relaxed with Dylan than Sean is and Sean is jealous. It looks like Dennis Tanner may be related to Eileen Grimshaw. Us long time fans who knew Elsie's maiden name was Grimshaw have wondered about that for years.
Gary is acting way too possessive of Izzy. Is it a control issue? Is he going to become an abuser? Or is it over-protective? Is his Stress related issues from the army overwhelming him? He's deleting her texts from Will and lying to Izzy about Will checking up on her. There will be hell to pay when she finds out and there was!.
Sally is very condescending about the homeless isn't she? Sophie seems to have got her way, though and is very involved in working for the charity. Now she's helping to organize an auction and is very grown up approaching Nick and Carla for help. Fiz is in a lot of trouble. They've discovered that Joy didn't die of natural causes. Well she did really, but it was assisted by John. Jerry Morton is selling Anna's house and she can't afford to buy it.
