It is yet another difficult day for Tyrone and Fiz; they are going to find out the results of Hope's recent scan. Obviously, it is not good news but Hope has a type of cancer which is not usually classed as high risk. There is an 80% chance she'll survive, but as Fiz candidly puts it, a 20% chance she'll die. It is revealed that Hope must undergo chemotherapy.
At Number 1, Ken is encouraging Amy to take up a musical instrument. Initially, Mini-Blanche is against the idea but she soon warms when Robert takes her to a music shop and she spots an opportunity to wind her mother up. Tracy is horrified to hear that Robert has put a deposit down on a drum-kit, and then rather embarrassed to hear that she has been the victim (for once) of a joke. By the end of the episode, Amy has decided to learn the violin, much to Ken's delight.
Another fantastic scene happened in the Rovers between the fabulous Beth and Sinead. Beth is on a 90s pop themed mission to win a year's supply of cheese for Darryl and Kirk. To save describing it, I will just show you it here.
Sarah is standing frozen over Callum's resting place. A sickening look is painted on her face and she explains to David and Kylie that she just 'had to see it again'. They decide that the sooner Gail's granny-flat is completed, the better. Logic tells them that the situation will somehow improve once it is more than just a makeshift graveyard. Kylie is so desperate for the work to be done, she volunteers to help, despite being far from a qualified builder. She even buys the men some cans. At the end of the day, the builders leave the work half-done and Kylie goes ballistic. David tries to reassure her, telling her that everyone thinks Callum is miles away. But Kylie protests - Callum is with them in the house and he always will be. Or so she thinks. Surely no man is going to stay underneath Gail for that long?
|"As far as everyone's concerned, Callum is miles away"|
"He's not though, is he? He is here. In this house. With us. And he always will be"
As always, thanks for reading.
And keeping with the 90s pop theme, I am now off to a 90s party wearing a 'Free Deirdre' t-shirt.
Until next week.
