Why Carla Connor will never be Tracy Barlow's bitch

I loved last night's Coronation Street, written by Jonathan Harvey.  The very end scene between Tracy and Carla spoke volumes. Carla stopped Tracy on the Street. She told her that if no other offers were received then Nick would accept Rob's low offer to buy Bistro.  She goes on to tell Tracy that she's doing her a favour as selling the Bistro means she can move away from Weatherfield at last.

Tracy: "So that's what's happened is it? I've done you a favour?"
Carla: "Yeah. So, thanks babe."
Tracy: "No. I'll tell you what's happened, shall I? You've become my bitch, babe. I always knew you had it in yer."

Carla's face - screen grabbed above from my telly screen - was a picture. But that isn't the Carla face we want to see is it? NO!

THIS is the Carla face we want to see. 

This is one of the earliest pictures of Carla, before she lost her balls.  Get them out of Tracy's handbag and fight, woman, fight!

It could be interesting. Corrie could knock her down so far that you don't think she'll ever get up again. And then - ker-flaming-ching - she roars back to the woman we always knew she was - and in some style too.
