Confessions: Thu Nov 19, 2009 Corrie Episode Review
Written by Mark Wadlow, directed by David Kester
We start off where we left off last time, with Roy floundering around the canal trying to keep his head above water. Tony wanted to walk off, but in a split moment of guilt, he goes back and saves Roy. He leaves him alive by the canal for Hayley and Becky to find him in their search later.
Meanwhile, Tony's on his way to the police station, where he confesses all to the detectives.
Maria is still in denial, until Hayley loses it and tells her that she knows her finance is a murderer. Maria is in shock, and gets Michelle to go down to the police station. The police give Maria five minutes with Tony. She asks why he did it, and Tony says he regretted killing Liam the second it happened. He insists he was in love with her and baby Liam and would never hurt them. Maria tells him that she wished they'd hang him, and that she'd be there to watch, cheer on, then dance on his grave. Tears stream down Tony's face as he leaves the room and hears Maria burst into sobs on the other side of the wall. And here we have it folks: it all ending in tears.
- Tony going back and saving Roy from a watery death. I'd miss our Roy! Even if he had been annoying the hell out of me these last weeks.
- Hayley having to lose it on Maria so she'd snap out of her denial! She should have slapped her!
- Becky having no idea what's going on, but there for the Croppers when they need them, no questions asked.
- The fact that there actually was a colony of bats at the canal after all. Tony hadn't planned it all out as we'd originally thought.
- Roy having nearly drowned to death, then saved, then left in the cold, then rescued, the spent time in hospital, then going home and deciding that recording in the bat journal was a priority. The man does not dwell at least.
- Maria deciding to go home and have Michelle console her, rather than helping poor Hayley find her husband, possibly at the hands of Maria's fiance.
- No one explaining to Audrey what's going on. The poor woman is in the dark!
- Roy nothing thinking that Tony is a murderer in his heart. Who cares? He's still a murderer, doesn't change the fact. I think Roy just likes to believe that his little "conscience" lectures did the trick.
- Tony giving up Jimmy Dockerson to the police. Didn't he promise Jimmy he wouldn't do that? I guess he's not much of a man of his word.
- Maria and Tony's relationship ending in the tears we all knew it would.
