At the hospital, it transpires that Carla has several broken ribs, a broken wrist and a dislocated shoulder. However, even more worryingly, it has become apparent that she is suffering from internal bleeding and an operation is imperative. Johnny becomes annoyed with the nurse, fearing he may lose his newly-found daughter. Back at the pub, Liz gets a phone call and reveals to the regulars about Carla's surgery. Leanne choked out a very rushed line of remorse, acknowledging that they have their differences but she doesn't deserve this. The doctors manage to stop the bleeding and Nick dramatically rises to his feet and breathily asks to see her. As Nick is talking to a sedated Carla, the Wicked Witch of Weatherfield lurks in the background, looking on through the room's window. She knows something which could blow that relationship apart, but it looks as if she is biding her time.
There's more secret-keeping and lying at the Platt household when David discovers Jason in Gail's granny flat. He's only doing some measurements but David goes mad nonetheless. Gail is desperate for underfloor heating and can't understand why David and Kylie are so set against it. I can. They claim that it would create too much mess and tell her it's far too late to be making any building alterations to the annex now. Are we finally about to see the end of the body under the patio - I mean - the body under the garage storyline? This blogger certainly hopes so. It's an interesting one but I would be more than happy to see the whole thing wrapped up now. But one request - don't send Kylie to jail! Although with the recent news of Paula Lane's second pregnancy, a jail sentence for Kylie seems unfortunately inevitable.

"You decided it wouldn't be worth the mess. But then, you're not the one sleeping in a fridge, are you?"
Elsewhere, we were treated to a lovely performance by Melanie Hill as Cathy last night, who was trying her best to convince Roy that he really should go back to visit Sylvia and look after her. With the news of Carla, she makes him realise that life is short and he needs to overlook his mother's acid-tongued ways.
Pat Phelan is being treated as the hero of the hour after helping Carla. He is also shaping up to become Kevin's new friend, which will make things difficult for the newly formed Kevanna. Pat later notices Anna stood in her doorway and she is terrified. Earlier on, he told Kevin that they have a bit of history. This can only spell trouble and the idea of putting Pat as Kevin's new friend seems incredibly contrived and overdone to me.
But, to finish this review on a high, there was a sweet scene in the Rovers with Audrey, Ken, Sophie, Sally and Tim as they discussed the council's plan to remove Maddie's memorial, classing it as graffiti. This leads to a conversation about Audrey's days as the Mayoress of Weatherfield and how she got to meet Prince Charles and she won't let us forget it- something which was rightly predicted at the time.
|"They're not gonna listen to you, councillors are always the same"|
"Excuse me, Sally, I was a councillor"
"Yeah, but you weren't very good at it. You were only in it for the perks"
A good episode which hopefully moved things forward.
Thanks for reading!
