It is very early morning as Anna in her dressing gown prepares Owen and Gary's snap. It's nothing special she says, just cheese and paste, but I think we'd all be grateful to someone packing us up at around 5.30am, as the men have to be at work for six. Gary's glum face is not good enough for Owen so he tells Gary to buck up a bit for his mother's sake as 'she is 'living every second with us' and we know that's true. 'I'd say have a nice day, but I'll settle for you coming home in one piece,' Anna tells them as they head off.
Kevin is staying at Tyrone's temporarily at least. He suggests that Tyrone and himself have a strategy meeting over a fry up, so off to Roy's they go. Tyrone is visibly anxious and we remember glimpsing the chaotic cupboard full of letters that was exposed to us recently. The revelation cannot be long in coming; then it's here and Kevin is predictably furious. Kevin worked very hard to get the garage going giving up weekends and evenings and except for the paperwork Tyrone has done a good job. It's increasingly awkward that Tyrone has Kevin as a house-guest, but the unpaid tax and the resulting fines can bring businesses to their knees, so Tyrone's negligence is very serious.
Things aren't going so well for Stella either and Kevin's difficulties intensify hers. Naturally he wants his house back and as he explains to Stella he wants Jack to be settled, quite understandably. Finding a suitable,affordable place to live though, is not easy. In addition, Eva, though she means well,
has probably exacerbated her mother's problems by approaching Kal and telling him that he needs his head testing. 'You must want your head testing if you don't want to go out with her.' Stella is pretty mortified by this and says so. A little later Eva approaches Kal and tells him, 'My mum is lovely and extremely fit.' Then, 'FYI, I still think you need your head testing.'
David and Kylie plan a night in a hotel and decide to dress up as characters from Pulp Fiction, Vincent Vega and Mia Wallace. Maria, her emotions still in turmoil, yells at David and Kylie for their planning and giggling in the back of the salon. 'You to are so self-absorbed!' she shouts.
David arrives at the hotel and Kylie will come long later. Two of David's neighbours are also in the hotel, making the most of Carla's attendance a her step-dad George's funeral. Yes, Peter and Tina have checked into the hotel and Peter once again says that soon, he will tell Carla about Tina.
An utterly bizarre moment occurs when to hide from David in the hotel, Tina actually hides underneath a table, covered by a tablecloth. Peter explains to a wholly unconvinced waitress that his companion is agoraphobic.
They decide to go to the room and order room-service. Will he leave Carla as he promises he will? The big money is on no, so most of us are in agreement with Steph. Maybe Peter himself knows he won't leave Carla even when he's saying he will. 'I wish we could stay here forever,' says Tina as they lie in the hotel bed. This is Tina's wish but just as that isn't possible, nor it seems is a life with Peter.
Did everyone notice the shadowy figure at the window of the Platt's house? Having secured an entry the intruder claims that he has come about the gas leak and that he was in the area. It becomes clear that this is a cock and bull story and after pushing Gail, flees with Kylie in hot pursuit. She tries to catch him but he jumps into his van and is off. Gail is undoubtedly panicked and says, 'We don't know what we are up against.'
The police come and offer victim support. At least Kylie and David have the good grace not to stay in the hotel and to spend the night at home to protect Gail and the children.
At the funeral Carla tells Rob and Michelle that Simon calls her Cruella behind her back and Rob tells her that everyone calls her that. He gets her for a moment. Back at Carla's Rob says his sister drives like Sebastian Vettel and Carla says she would be more than a match for him. Rob is trying go find something to eat. 'Where's the grub?' asks Rob. 'In the shop,' replies Carla. 'Hark at Delia,' says Michelle. I can make you some butties,' and looking at a loaf says that there's a bit of green on it. It's an excellent scene. Rob leaves and Michelle approaches the vexed topic of Carla's pregnancy. Michelle makes a good point. If Carla was so determined not to become a mother why had she not acted yet?
The funeral has put Carla into a reflective mood and as she says earlier, she should be used to funerals now. Seeing everyone today has made Carla realise things about herself 'I shouldn't be a mum - you only get one life - I don't want to make a massive mistake.' Will she tell Peter? Will she terminate the pregnancy? Those are only two of the many questions we must all be asking...
