Before Frank got killed, Peter started drinking again, heavily again, after a visit from a guy from the Gambling Commission intent on checking the books at the bookies. Peter offers to make him a cuppa. "Sugar?" he asks. "No thanks," Gambling man replies. "Sweet enough, eh?" jokes Peter and without missing a beat Gambling man goes: "No, Type 2 Diabetes." Ouch.
So Peter's having problems caused by Frank and hits the booze again. Carla comes to his aid and joins him in with a whisky or ten and the two of them get inebraet.. inerbreiated… very drunk together and are wonderful to watch. They're horrible drunks, nasty drunks the pair of them, fighting over a whisky bottle just as Leanne walks in: "Oh, so this is love, is it?"
Carla tells Frank she'll sell him the bleedin' factory just to get rid of him out of her life and she signs the contracts thinking she'll be getting a load of work that's been promised from Jenny Sumner. But it's all a load of pants as Carla finds out that Jenny's double-crossed her in the gusset game, she was after Frank all along, not Carla's frillies.
Then Sally breaks the news to the factory girls that they're going to be out of work once Frank rules the Underworld so everyone's got reason to hate him. But which one killed him? Go on then, have a guess.
Over at the Bistro Lewis goes in for a meal. "Table for one," he asks Gail. "Table for one what?" she snarls back. He's up in court for the money fraud he committed last time he was around and gets community service but Audrey's still giving him the glad eye, even if he is wearing a high-vis jacket with graffiti remover running down his legs. Nick's also taken with the cad's charm after Lewis is suave and sophisticated around the Weatherfield Gazette restaurant reviewer and Nick offers Lewis a job. Lewis is now the Bistro meeter and greeter in Coronation Streeter.
In the Rovers, one of them wide-screen, huge-arse telly's go up on the wall, the sort of telly that needs a wide-screen, huge-arse satellite dish to sit on the roof of the pub. The only people happy about any of this is Karl who ordered it and Tez the TV man who put it up for a free pint and a glance down Sunita's top at the bar. None of the punters are happy to have to shout above the volume of the new telly and it causes interference on Ken and Deirdre's TV next door. There's nowt worse.
