Coronation Street double episode review, Monday 26 Jan
Heartbreakingly, Sinead didn't feel the pin the doctor stuck in her leg. Chesney is all for telling the truth, whereas Beth thinks it would be best to keep quiet and remain positive. At her bedside remain Chesney and Beth. Sally and Alya turn up and Chesney says he's worried that she's overdoing it. Sinead's response is brilliant. 'I'm laid flat on my back - I'm hardly pulling an all-nighter in town. I wish I was.'
Norris takes it upon himself to ask Steve, 'How is the guilty conscience?' Audrey jumps to Steve's defence as does Tony. 'At least you can walk,' says Norris. Tony says, 'Wind your neck in Norris.'
Norris hasn't finished yet. In The Rovers Norris's spite makes Michelle burst out and tell the truth. 'Steve has clinical depression.' The pub becomes silent.
When Steve turns up at the hospital, Chesney tells him, aggressively to get out. No one will be more delighted than Steve if Sinead is able to walk again.
The search for Kylie brings little joy for David and Eva. This time though David employs a new search tool in his bid to lure Kylie back. He tells her in a message that Gail is dead. If two young children are not sufficient to bring her back, it seems unlikely that the demise of her mother-in -law will do the trick. Nevertheless, right in front of her and Michael, David leaves a message on Kylie's phone, telling her that Gail was mugged and that he had to go and identify her and that he threw up looking at her. Gail cannot believe her ears, nor can Michael. David has made them take down the Missing Person poster of Kylie, fearing that Max would see it.
Some hope, maybe, comes in the form of a message telling him that Kylie has been caught shoplifting in Rochdale. With that news David and the most loyal friend in the world, Eva, head off. The trouble is that it is Gemma not Kylie, but Gemma has Kylie's bag, as Kylie left after a row, and which David takes from her, but they are no nearer finding Kylie. So, it's off to The Dog and Gun where Callum is complimenting himself on his darts prowess. Callum shows the usual aggression on seeing David and threatens to tell Max that he, Callum is Max's real dad, if David comes bothering him again.
Back home, David finds a note to Max and Lily in Kylie's bag. 'I love you so much it hurts,' she writes. Poor Max. He doesn't want a letter, no matter how sweet the sentiment, he wants his mum, at home, in his life, every day.
Amy is told about her dad's depression at Tracy's insistence. Tracy, in all her sensitivity, asks Steve if he has told Amy that he has gone 'Radio Gaga.' Amy echoes Gaga, in saying that Lady Gaga has depression too.
Eva and Jason go well together and as Eileen is fed up of the lack of space in her house, 'I feel like the woman in the shoe,' Eva formulates a plan. She and Jason should, obviously, buy a place together. They've been going out for a while now, so it is the logical next step. Over a frittata, French, Italian, Eva puts forward her plan. Jason is keen and also likes the 'omelette.'
Todd's reaction is interesting. He appears jealous of his brother, at the idea of Jason settling down. Eva tells him he will meet someone then he'll be happy. When the plan collapses, Todd appears pleased. He says to Jason that he could always rent a place, making sure Eva can hear, before Jason has a chance to tell her himself. So mean of Todd, to whom Eva has been so kind.
Great interaction between Craig, Tim and Daryl the rat. There is maybe more to come if Tim takes on Craig as his apprentice. Tim behaves in a fatherly manner towards Craig, despite his horror of a rat who might sit on his shoulders and lick his ear. He tells Craig not to let anyone tell him what he ought to do.
Things seem to be going well between Sean and Billy. Billy is extremely likeable and as his parishioner calls, because her son is packing his bag after an argument, off he goes to help her. I wonder if his number is available for all parents struggling with their offspring. He would never be off the phone.
