Corrie wedding of the year
I had to wonder, has this wedding now taken the record for shortest wedding in Corrie history? Tracy and Steve's only lasted to the reception but they had to drive from the chapel to the Rovers. Nick and Carla got married in the same room as the reception so I reckon they probably win this dubious award. Nick finally realized that he couldn't handle Carla's self destruct mode in the long run. Nice Nicky, Doormat Nicky, he might have forgiven her over and over but looking down into his future, it looks like he just couldn't do it. Roy didn't look too happy with Carla, either after her shenanigans may cost Cathy dearly. I'm sure she'll be ok but Roy may not be so quick to forgive Carla, either.
Gail went from being Carla's best friend back to being her worst enemy and that smack she gave Carla was a shock. You might resort to physical violence on behalf of your child if your child is a little kid but it really isn't called for when your son is pushing 40. Then went Round 2 with Nick leveling one at Robert's jaw for calling him "mate". Tracy seems to have burned some very big bridges with her family, too.
There were pretty frocks, and one or two frumpy ones. Tacky wedding gifts abounded. Carla was probably the glummest looking bride I've ever seen, barely cracking a smile at all while previously stressed out Nick was relaxed and happy. Audrey uttered a Phrase of Doom reckoning things couldn't get worse for the Platts, and, yep, things got worse right enough.
I had guessed that there would be a vehicle through the side of the Grannex which would unearth Callum's body but I thought it would be Carla's car. I guess it wouldn't have had enough weight to do the kind of damage needed where the breakdown truck did.
I've put some blog posts over on State of the Street, with a running commentary as I watched the episodes, along with lots of screen captures. Have a look:
Top marks to everyone this week! Great performances!
