When Carla gets back to the flat she’s not best pleased, as you can imagine. And Peter’s drunk, very drunk. There was an excellent scene between the two of them where Carla’s rage and frustration comes walloping out of her, she hits Peter, she thumps him and he’s on his knees in front of her, crying his drunken eyes out as she throws a photo of their unborn baby at him. It was powerful stuff and it didn’t stop there. When Carla goes to work the next day, she ensures that Peter can’t get out of the flat and into a pub. Enlisting Tracy’s help as babysitter, she leaves Peter alone with Tracy who nips out to the shops and leaves Peter alone, but she locks him in the flat first so he can’t escape – to the pub, or to Tina. It can’t end well, just you mark my words.
Meanwhile, Tracy’s busy at the shop buying more stolen goods from Tony to sell at Barlow’s Buys. Tony’s not happy as Tina takes a picture of him with Tracy and Rob and I must have blinked, because I can’t recall the reason that she took the picture in the first place, unless it was just to wind Tracy up.
Speaking of Tony, he buys the builder’s yard and the flat above from Owen this week and gives it to Jason. Eileen’s torn. She’s pleased that Jason’s got a business to run and security of sorts but she also knows her ex, and wonders what he’s up to. I don’t trust Tony either, do you?
Todd and Marcus start dating and it’s a bit creepy, I don’t like these two together because I don’t like Todd and I do like Marcus. He could do better. But he’s doing Todd for now and Todd announces to Eileen, who’s got enough on her plate (and in her house), that they’re both moving in. Sean’s not happy as you’d expect.
Over in the Rovers, Tyrone gets another text from Maria pretending to be Kirsty. Tyrone throws the phone to the floor, smashes it to bits and storms out in a flurry of fear. At the bar, David leans over to Maria, knowing full well what’s gone on. “Was that anything to do with you?” he smirks. Maria catches Tyrone in the garage later and suggests they get some fresh air together in the park. Tyrone feels sorry for Maria so he agrees and off they go to the park. But before they head off, Maria tells Audrey in the salon that she’s got a new man but she won’t say who. It doesn’t take long for Audrey to put two and two together and she tells Maria to leave Tyrone alone. Audrey knows Maria’s still in a state over Marcus and so when Maria heads to the park with Tyrone, Audrey tells Fiz and Chesney about Maria’s delusions over Tyrone and they all head to the park, just in time for Fiz to spy Tyrone being cuddled by Maria with a smirk on her face. I expected Fiz to fight for her man but she just went home in a huff.
Elsewhere this week, Beth flies to Latvia for a boob job and Gail and Katy are employed on a job-share as receptionists at the new gym.
And that’s just about that for this week.
This week's writers were Chris Fewtrell (Monday double episode), Joe Turner (Wednesday), Julie Jones (Friday double episode). Find out more about the Coronation Street writing team at http://coronationstreetupdates.blogspot.com/2008/11/exclusive-all-current-corrie-writers.html
