Top 10 mysteries of Coronation Street

(This post was originally posted by Flaming Nora on the Coronation Street Blog August 2015, reposted to this blog with permission.)

I've been wondering about a few Corrie loose ends.

If you know the answer to any of these, do please leave a comment below.  And if you have any more comments you want to air or things you want to point, then do.

1. Where's Eccles?
2. Where are the Renshaw twins getting their hair done these days?
3. Why did Gail's dad Ted Page disappear, never to be mentioned again?
4. Where's Ozzy?
5. Who's looking after Lily?
6. What happened to Todd Grimshaw in that London to turn him so evil?
7. How does Sophie manage to control her grief over the recent death of the love-of-her-life Maddie?
8. Has Sophie forgotten she's a church-going Christian?
9. Why hasn't Mary fought to get her beloved motorhome back?
10.Why is Gail turning into the village idiot?

That list is just the tip of the iceberg TVOR. Corrie has Lots of loose ends. But now we know happened to Sally's scratch and win money. She still has it and and will buy Underworld with it.

Does Michelle remember that she has a biological son?

I'd like to know where Lilly is we never see her. Is Kylie back doing nails in the salon? Where is Audrey and Andy? Why does Michelle never interact with her nephew Liam? He is her late brother's son.

Where is Todd's scar?
It was light and visible for a while after he recovered
from the beating he got.
Did he have a magical procedure to remove it,
or did the makeup artists forget to put it on?
He seems to be working on his karma to get another
beating and a scar ;)

We'll see Lily soon, it'll be her birthday in a few weeks!
We do see Todd's scar sometimes, I think it depends on the light. I also think it's the kind of scar that will fade to something barely noticeable over time.
I think the producers wish we would all just forget about Michelle's biological son and yeah, it seems like she doesn't bother with little Liam at all!

Maybe you need an HD TV to see the barely there or forgotten scar makeup job.

Carla is going to sell the flat (condo) and factory,
but another conveniently forgotten mystery is the half of the Rovers
that she snatched away from Tony.

Corriefan said...

Daithi_c.....Apparently Carla never actually bought Liz's share of the Rovers .... Even though they were at the lawyer's office ,that transaction never went through after Liz found our about Tony's shenanigans . Liz didn't need to sell since she she wouldn't be leaving with him to go to Spain . That leaves Tony and Liz as owners of the Rovers.

To tell you the truth, I'm not so sure Carla did end up buying the Rovers. The day she went to the solicitor's with Michelle, Liz and tony were late going into the office. Carla made her offer which was a verbal one, not papers done up through her own solicitor and it looks as thought she may have gone through with it, but we don't know for sure. It might be that she was going to have her solicitor do up papers the next day. The next day was Steve and Michelle's wedding when the truth about Tony's schemes came out and then the fire. There's Liz weeks later drawing up papers to have Tony be a silent partner only which she couldn't do if she didn't still own her half. It's never been referred to even when Michelle is worrying about Carla's gambling.

From ITVs David Nugent

"Many thanks for the e-mail about the ownership of the Rovers and I do hope the below clarify matters.
Liz paid off the debts Steve had run up using Street Cars money. Steve then had a huge tax bill, which Tony paid off. He then also agreed to help pay for the wedding. Tony then pretended that all this strain on his finances had forced him into dodgy deals with loan sharks who were now threatening him with violence if he did not pay them back. Steve sold his half of the Rovers to Travis Ltd. (Tony's bogus company). Steve gave the proceeds to Tony, who effectively paid himself! Liz was about to sell her half of the Rovers to Carla but before they could sign on the dotted line, she learned of Tony's plan to get the pub. Therefore, Liz still owns her half of the pub, while Tony owns the other half."

Thanks! It's as we suspected. Good to hear from the "horse's mouth" so to speak. It's too bad viewers were left confused. All it would have taken was one line on screen from Liz or Carla. I may quote that over on the Coronation Street Blog as well since it was posted publically anyway.

However we may never get an answer to:

10.Why is Gail turning into the village idiot?

Maybe David N knows the answer to that .

Tvor said...

Nahhhh I love Gail, It's no wonder she's gone a bit doolally after all the crap she's had to go through in her life, including burying all them husbands and raising David the Demon!
