Happy 30th birthday, Tracy. I'm really surprised there hasn't been any press thronging the street like there was after Richard's escapades. Tracy even managed to get to Charlie's funeral so that it will look good for her not because she wanted to go. David has decided to use Charlie's funeral to sidle up to Maria but she put him in his place pretty quick although she could have been a bit more sensitive about it. If he'd been smarter (or more mature) he wouldn't keep slagging Charlie off to Maria and if he keeps doing it in the salon he's going to get sacked. Ken's right, he and Deirdre have to go to the funeral for Tracy's sake, or at least it would be the thing to do if Tracy really were upset like they think she is. Tracy can hardly keep the smirk off her face. Or is that just Kate F's acting again ;) Jason and Maria are the only two who really were upset. Tracy's not really hiding much from her cellmate. You know, the cellmate *could* be called to testify against her. I guess the next few months are going to be all about Tracy putting on a performance as the grieving abused girlfriend.
So now that the secret about Charlie trying to drown David is out, he's going to be a witness. He loves the attention so what does he do? ramp it up! Oh yes, "I saw her do it"! Weaving a tangled web, there, David. If Tracy thinks he really did see what happened, could David be the next victim? Tracy is not allowed to influence anyone's opinion so you know that's just like a red rag to a bull, especially with David. I thought Tracy was going to swallow her own tongue when Ken told her David saw *everything*! Of course she's nervous not knowing what David's saying. If he really did see anything, she will know he saw that it wasn't the way she said it was. And if he is lying, her story and his have to match. So she's making sure it does.
Aw. Norris was actually nice to Chesney. and then a total Pratt to Claire over the petition (or birthday card). And he's given up on internet dating and found the world of classmates.com. There couldn't have been too many of his own ex-school mates because he's starting in on Rita's past and she's actually letting him find some of those exotic dancers in the troupe she was in years ago. She's tempted to meet up with her old mate Doreen.
Wonder why Cilla is so concerned about luring Chesney back home? Just for how it looks? She couldn't actually feel guilty could she? And she made up with Yana a damn sight quicker than with Les. Poor Ches, first he stumbles in on Sally Webster in the shower and now it's Maria. Or maybe it's Lucky Ches! Chesney really does know his mother. Lovely little scene with Chesney and Roy on the street (where Les and Kirk were kicking the football). Just a few lines that ended up with Roy looking flummoxed that his attempt at philosophy was rewarded with a football upside the head.
Looks like Joanne fancies Liam too (who wouldn't!) and Adam seems to be uncaring. There's going to be trouble between Kelly and Jo though. Kelly doesn't take rivalries in good humour. I dunno. Joanne seems so young. Doesn't she look about 18 to you? But there does seem to be a lot of chemistry there. Roy and Hayley were really nice to Becky too, selling stuff in a car boot sale and giving her the money and a coat. Poor Roy, all aflutter because Becky got hold of some rare comics in with the car boot stuff but what a star, she brought them back because she didn't want to take a cheque *and* he ended up getting 1500 pounds for the collection! Paul didn't like it when he found out Carla goes through his pockets before the laundry. Does he have something to hide? Looks like he and Carla might not make their ninth anniversary if their eighth was anything to judge.
David's hair looks really daft! Sean's back. I didn't know he was gone! Ohh, what's Roy going to buy with his money? What would Hayley like, he askes! Aw what a sweetie! The girl in the cafe that had business with Charlie sure handled Dev pretty smoothly. I think he's slipping! So she's renovating the old Bakery! Heavens, that salon is like a DMZ this week, with everyone hollering at everyone else and talk of murders and stuff. Dev's charm doesn't seem to have the effect it used to on the ladies. He sure struck out, twice, with the woman wanting to do business with the builders. Notice how he puts on the smoooooooooth seductive voice even when he's just talking about Welsh rarebit but as soon as things get difficult, when she asks about Charlie Stubbs, he runs for the hills. Or the Rovers as it happened. Now who wants a man that only wants to be a Good Time Charlie? (er, no pun intended)
