Well hello there! Happy new year to you lovely bunch of Corrie fanatics! Welcome to this week's Wednesday review of Revelation Street.
We're served up some more of the stock storyline involving all the Connors. Carla plays the victim who takes an episode or two to come round, Kate plays the understanding one and Aidan plays the incredibly irritating one who decides to aggressively hate the perpetrator. Aidan is appalled to find that Johnny has spent the night in his own flat and that Kate hasn't thrown him out. He shouts, splutters and widens his eyes through one of many angry outbursts which all culminate in a vicious punch-up. Kate nurses his wounds, but insists he must leave the flat. He packs his bags and on the way out bumps into Carla. Despite everything, Johnny believes she will forgive him one day. Both Aidan and Kate are of course confused, especially as it seems as though their mother's death occured as a tragic result of a row about his infidelity. After learning the truth many years ago, Johnny's wife stormed right out onto the street and into the path of an oncoming car. And they didn't even live on Coronation Street then!

Cathy is still reeling from the revelation that her late husband Alan had been having an affair with the Loch Nessa Monster, having found love letters in Alan's desk. Roy already knew but was persuaded by Nessa to keep schtum and help her find and destroy the letters. Naturally, this didn't go to plan and Cathy was already reading the letters by the time they got to her house. In tonight's episode, Cathy has not forgiven either of them. We, as the audience are desperate for her to forgive Roy and are cheering at her outrage at Nessa. Cathy bought Roy tickets to an event as a Christmas gift, which they were supposed to go to tonight. Roy throws them in the bin, thinking Cathy would not be interested anymore and unfortunately, he's right. Anna, in a bid to be helpful, fishes the tickets out of the bin and sends Ken and Nessa round to her house with them. Cathy won't relent. As far as she is concerned, she and Roy are over.

"You'll always have a special place in my thoughts, Nessa. Don't worry about that"
Elsewhere, Mary Poppins takes a stand for herself when she cancels babysitting plans to see her beau. This leaves Dev flummoxed when he had planned to spend the evening with Erica tasting her pie. But all is not lost- she brings the ingredients over to his house insead.
|"Brendan and Mary. I want to carve it on a tree in a heart with an arrow going through it" |
"No one's ever carved my name on a tree before"
|"I've thought about what you've said and there's no way I'm getting rid of this baby. This is my last chance to become a mother and I'm not going to pass up on it. I'm sorry to barge in on you like this"|
|"Aren't you the woman from the cafe?"|
"Oh cafe, chip shop, taxi office- he's had 'em all round here, love"
A decent episode, mainly saved by Mary and, especially Anna's very comic performances.
Thanks for reading!
