The Very Worst of Betrayals

(This post was originally posted by Ruth Owen on the Coronation Street Blog in June 2017, reposted to this blog with permission.)

It is the very worst of betrayals – a best friend and a fiancé – cheating with each other behind your back. There are various ways that a person can find out about this betrayal, but to have the proof brought to you via a large TV screen, in the flat where you live with your fiancé, both betrayers messaging about how they feel about each other, how they just avoided getting caught, phew, and how they can’t wait to be together again.
Then, very shortly afterwards, you are face to face with your ‘best friend’ but you can’t say anything because her young son is there and you are still sufficiently sensitive to know that it wouldn’t be right to release your emotions on his mother in his presence.  It registers with you that when your 'friend' was in difficulty, you looked after her son regularly.
Your sense of betrayal is overwhelming. You thought these people loved you or at least cared about you. They do the dirty, right behind your back. How will you ever trust anyone ever again?  
While all this is going on, you also suspect that you are pregnant by the man you love and who has betrayed you  – you are 3 days late and you are usually like clockwork. Thank goodness, your sister is there to offer some solace.
You try to be yourself in front of your fiancé and you don’t let on that you know about the affair. You show him the positive pregnancy test – you confirm with him that it’s good news, right? He confirms that it is…                                                  
Eva played a blinder last night! She behaved very differently from how I thought she would. Her controlled fury was bubbling underneath but somehow, she managed to contain herself. Pretty impressive!
We’ve seen the trailers. We know she buys an expensive car and puts it on his credit card– but we will have to wait until Friday to see how it all unravels.
