State of the Street - February 2016

We've been all over the map this month as far as storylines go. Here's hoping Simon's football accident is the end of that storyline, and his counsellor will be the one who cleans things up and helps him take steps to get his anger under control because Leanne has other things on her mind. Tracy has finally revealed to Carla that she knows about the one night stand with Robert and seemingly has succeeded in pressuring Carla to push Nick into selling up and moving away.

It will take Tracy exactly five minutes before she alienates all the staff and another five before the restaurant goes under if her attitude and tactics are any proof.  Meanwhile, we all mourn the ruination of a strong female character as Carla slinks around, tail between her legs instead of pushing back and giving Tracy what she deserves.

Phelan is worming his way into the fabric of the Street and getting his feet under Eileen's table. Anna keeps losing her rag while the rest of us scream at the telly "Just tell Kevin the whole truth, you idiot!" You know, if he doesn't take it well and wants nothing more to do with her, it reflects worse on him than it does on her and she's better off without him. But I digress. As horrible as Phelan is, I'm loving the storyline because he's so good at what he does! An excellent bad guy played by an excellent actor.

I'm not sure what to think about the "slavery" storyline with the young Polish girl. I do like that Eva's getting her own storyline, mind you, even if it also seems to intersect with the ever-increasingly rude Aidan whom I am disliking more and more. Johnny and Jenny briefly connected and there might be more there. I'm increasingly liking him more and more so, bring it on!

All this and more over on State of the Street.
