Tracy confesses to Victoria Court fire

There's a good interview in The Radio Times with Tristan Gemmill, who plays Robert Preston in Cornation Street.  He says that Tracy will confess to Robert about starting the fire at Victoria Court.

Tristan says that Robert gets suspicious when he catches Tracy being uncharacteristically sympathetic towards Carla.

With Carla still under the misapprehension that it was she who brought about the demise of Kal Nazir and Maddie Heath in the recent blaze, Tracy finally tells her that she should stop torturing herself.

The exchange is witnessed by Robert, who is left wondering why Tracy is behaving like this. "Robert can't work out why Tracy is responding to Carla in this way," says actor Tristan Gemmill. "So he grills her about her behaviour. But she becomes increasingly evasive and the penny suddenly drops for Robert that maybe she had something to do with the fire."

So how does Robert get Tracy to own up? "He says that as long as she tells the truth, then he can support her. But there must be no more lies. Circumstances come to a head and Tracy is left with no choice but to tell Robert the truth. He forces her hand, really."

And what does Tracy end up saying? "She says that she was in the flat and that she left a candle burning. The only bit where there's a grey area is when he asks her why she went round there. Did she go round to harm Carla? Tracy says no, but the audience knows that Tracy clearly contemplated doing something bad."

I wonder if Tracy can come up with a good reason why she stole Michelle's keys to Carla's flat (and why haven't they been missed?).

It's about freaking time they brought this storyline to a head.
I thought for sure it would have been Leanne that rumbled Tracey, seeing as Tracey was shouting about it being a candle before the report had even been released.

I would like to Amy to overhear this confession and then question her own mother if she intended for her own daughter to perish in the fire? Tracy will protest that she did not know Amy was in that flat and that she only ever intended for Carla to be hurt. Amy will see her mother for what she is and emotionally detach from her.

I'm not surprised the keys haven't been missed, Humpty, since the doors & their locks would have been replaced requiring new keys. And with all the trauma, it's likely it would have been forgotten that a set was left with Michelle. After all, it's crossed no one's mind - not even Carla's, that there was anyone else present in the flat that night.

Tracy will probably say she went to check on Amy (being under the same roof as her enemy) and had no idea she'd left the candle burning... that she was devastated that she'd almost killed her own daughter... blah, blah, blah. It will be forgotten soon enough.
