Preview of tonight's double Corrie - Monday 22 June

Monday 22nd June
FAYE FEELS THE PRESSURE AT MILEY’S CHRISTENING Whilst Anna, Tim and Gary prepare for the christening, Faye is dreading the prospect of the day ahead. When Tim witnesses Faye snapping at baby Miley he’s left feeling concerned by her behaviour. During the service it’s obvious that Faye has no interest whatsoever as she plays on her phone, while an awkward Jackson sits with her parents. Tim is overcome with emotion as he gives a reading. The pressure becoming unbearable for Faye she runs out, is motherhood all too much for Faye?
KYLIE’S FAMILY SUMMIT LOOMS David, Gail, Audrey and Nick all attend Kylie’s first drug counselling session in support. When Michael turns up how will Kylie react?
DEV PRACTICES SOME ‘FLEXI’ LOVE Dev makes an attempt to impress Talisa with his weight-lifting skills in the gym, but as Mary witnesses his flirting she worries for Julie. Unaware of Dev’s changing feelings, Julie is giving Brian marching orders to leave her alone, certain her future is with Dev.
ELSEWHERE Tracy is unimpressed to be greeted by Brian at the breakfast table, wearing Ken’s kimono. Fiz and Tyrone sense Cathy might be starting to see Roy as more than a friend, as she pretends her fridge is broken so she can dine at the cafe. Their suspicions are confirmed when they later discover her food shopping, insinuating that she’s told a white lie to see Roy.

Monday 22nd June
ANNA’S STUNNED BY THE DEPTHS OF FAYE’S DESPAIR Tim calls off the christening, for the sake of Faye and Miley’s well being. Whilst he’s breaking the news to the congregation, Josie and Grieg approach Tim, suggesting it may be better if Miley were to live with him. Tim meets with the couple to discuss the possibility and agrees to talk to Anna and Faye about the suggestion. But how will Anna take to the idea?
KYLIE’S SUMMIT DESCENDS INTO CHAOS Kylie is left mortified when David begins to air the family’s dirty laundry. The counsellor insists that it must be positive vibes all round, but will David be able to hold his tongue and support Kylie? Tensions rise even further when Sarah calls at No.8 with Callum.
TRACY URGES BRIAN TO JULIE CARPE DIEM As Brian cooks dinner for The Barlows, Tracy is sick of the sight of him and urges him to be more proactive in his bid to win back Julie. Meanwhile Julie tells Dev about her encounter with Brian, but assures him there’s nothing to worry about. Dev squirms as Mary has her beady eye on him.
ELSEWHERE Roy invites Cathy to join him for dinner at Ken’s, but Tyrone becomes suspicious as she comes up with excuses. Cathy later joins Tyrone and Fiz for a drink in the pub and discusses her and her late husband's passion for quiz shows. Fiz suggests a Rovers pub quiz but Cathy seems reluctant.

Anna looks as santimonous as ever.

"Tensions rise even further when Sarah calls at No8 with Callum." For gawd sake lock the bleedin' door! How many more times do we have to be subjected to this tedious, predictable scene?

Please God the baby gets to stay with its father's family. So sick of Anna's manipulation of Faye. SHE DOESN'T WANT TO KNOW. How thick is Anna not to see that?

The writers lost their way with Anna. They tried to make her the lynch pin of the family, holding it all together, but ended up showing that she was actually the problem. It's all very well going for tough love with Faye but she should have done that with Gary. Then she wouldn't have had to sleep with Phelan but she preferred the martyr's route. She could have insisted Gary had therapy when he returned from Afghanistan but she felt all he needed was a mother's love. It's one thing to be a flawed character and quite another to go looking for trouble. It will take some work to turn her character around. It would make better sense if Faye went to live with Tim and Sally, while Anna made a new life somewhere else with Izzy. Sophie needs a new side-kick and looking after her 'little sister' would give them both a new lease of life.

Maybe Anna had a baby when she was a teen, and was forced to give her/him up for adoption by her parents. That would make more sense as to her reason in demanding that a 14 year old accept the major responsibility of bringing up a child when she's just a child herself (Faye). Anna might also be going through some sort of mental breakdown and sees the baby as a new start.

As a Canadian viewer I haven't seen the episode yet but feel compelled to make a few comments. First of all how hypocritical to have the baby christened I don't recall anyone in that family ever attending church. Secondly who would Faye be texting on her phone she has only one friend Craig. I agree with anon 10.38 the child needs to be with a loving STABLE family and Anna certainly cannot provide that.

Tvor said...

I agree with the previous commenter. It does seem strange that people would have a baby christened into the church when they have no intentions of bringing up the child with any sort of religion. THey'd be better off having a little do after going to the registry office to register the child's birth!

I really hope Faye does give the baby up but can she legally? She's under age, her mother would have to sign any papers so Anna has to be on board with it, too. I really like this storyline but I do find it a bit of a fail that we've only seen Social Services once.

Interesting question, Tvor. I'm not sure what the law in in the UK, but in American law, the legal guardians of a baby born to a minor are the natural parents of the baby. The parents of the minor mother still have legal guardianship over their daughter. This doesn't mean that they get to make decisions about her child for her, though. So, if the mother and grandparents disagree, it's the mother's decision.

Brian at the breakfast table wearing Ken's kimono....just Ewwww. Who does that? My own brothers never shared bed clothes.

The Sarah/Callum waltzing into David's house is beyond ridiculous. Put an end to this horrible story line and get rid of the wooden Callum. I keep trying to find something about him that is working, but I can not. Sorry, but this poor guy is not an actor. No wonder his CV on IMBD is so weak for supposed 12 years in the biz. He is just too hard to watch. Pairing him with Sarah and then Bethany....and I want to throw a brick through my TV when their scenes come up.

Poor Faye, I hope she is able to give Miley the proper home with a another family. Anna needs to start acting like a mother and stop being so selfish.

Anonymous said...

TVOR, surely that can't be right? That Faye doesn't have the choice of whether or not to keep her baby? I can't believe that.

Tvor said...

I don't know whether she would or not, that was my question. She's only 13 so is she considered Miley's legal guardian? Yes, she's her mother but when it came to signing papers like adoption I should think it would have to be Anna's signature. As to the decision, I only wondered. Surely she would have the right to decide but, legally, could Anna override her if she didn't want to give the baby away? Morally, Anna should go along with what Faye wants regarding the baby.

Anonymous said...

As I posted above, under American law, Anna would not have the right to override Faye's wishes, even though she is a minor. Does anyone know the UK law on this?

Humpty Dumpty said...

There's a whole lot of legal stuff about parental responsibility and shared care which involve Social Services and the Courts. I don't suppose this will be touched on, just as David hardly bothered with solicitors in the Max storyline. Not only has Miley's story hardly involved Social Services, it has completely by-passed the Health Visitor (or I missed that episode). In the UK, a new mum is assigned a Health Visitor who visits regularly and should pick up on any problems she's experiencing. Because Faye didn't go to ante-natal classes, it could be argued that Faye slipped through the system. However, this would imply that the social worker didn't alert any of the other agencies with an interest. I wonder why the Institute of Health Visiting hasn't complained.

Thanks for the information, Humpty. Even if Faye had been under the radar because she did not attend ante-natal classes, I would have thought that, once she was in the hospital to give birth, all the necessary alerts would kick in. From that point of view, this story has been poorly handled.

I agree with the comments about Sarah,Callum and Bethany.Their storyline [for lack of a better name]has dragged on to tedious lengths and yet other characters were axed in their place due to 'lack of storyline?Speaking of characters who ran out of steam,why is Michael at Kylie's counselling session?Is he going to revert to stalking the family as revenge now?
I also don't see the point of Fiz's return if she's going to revert back to bullying everyone particurely Roy's new friend Cathy.Let Roy be happy without needing Fiz's permission to be .

I don't understand the reasoning behind bringing Sarah and Bethany back. I've never cared for Sarah and she certainly hasn't matured or gotten any smarter. As for Bethany what a spoilt, rude little brat. I cringe whenever Sarah and Callum enter David's house. I'd tell them both to get the he** out of my house! How hard up for a man is Sarah really dating the guy who is trying to take custody of her own brother's step-son! Do we really need more scenes with Sarah and Callum now every time there are scenes in the Rover's we are subjected to Callum hanging over the bar making sarcastic remarks to Liz. Sarah wouldn't last a day working for me.
