Craig’s secret is out. The reason he’s been moody and quiet the last few months is not, as Kirk suspected, because of ‘feelings in the trouser department’ or that Craig might be gay. It’s not, as Beth suspected, because Craig’s on drugs or missing his alcoholic dad Darryl “he even named his rat after him”. But it is, as we all find out, because he thinks he’s the one responsible for killing Sunita and firefighter Toni and burning down the Rovers Return.
We know this because he admits all to Karl. Yes, Karl. Desperate to unburden what he thinks is his guilt, Craig pops round to the Rovers and sits in the smoking shelter, tears running down his face. He wants to admit everything to either Stella or Karl, to tell them he was smoking the night of the Rovers fire and that he thinks his unfinished cigarette that he threw to the ground, was the spark that the fire needed to burn the pub to the ground and kill two innocent people. Poor Craig, he’s been walking around for the last few months with all this guilt, this wrongly-placed guilt, in his little ginger head. No wonder he’s been off his food.
Anyway, it’s Karl who finds Craig sitting crying in the shelter. “Alright, Chesney?” asks Karl, confusing one red-head lad for another. “It’s Craig,” he tells Karl before unburdening himself with the events of that dreadful night when he thinks he’s burned down the pub. It’s music to Karl’s ears and he later picks Craig up in his car and drives him somewhere quiet for a chat. He tells him he understands his guilt about burning down the pub but if he keeps quiet all will be well. Karl presumably thinks that if Craig thinks he burned down the pub, and he can dob Craig in to the cops, then that’ll absolve Karl from any finger of flame-blame that might point at him. “Think of me as your go-to guy,” Karl tells Craig, trying to lure him into his confidence with a leer on his face and malice on his mind. Run, Craig, run.
Rita’s tussled to the ground, gets roughed up and has her handbag nicked. She’s hurt and upset but the big red hairdo does its job, fights its own battle and wins, ready to fight another day. That hair hasn't moved since 1973 and it's going to take more than a gang of kids ont'Red Rec to shift it now.
At th’ospital the Plattilsleys are warned that when Nick makes a recovery (as he surely will) his personality might change. I think we can all look forward to that.
And that’s just about that for this week.
