Coronation Street double episode review, Monday 1 February
Carla then notices Johnny and wonders why he’s hiding and what he heard. Johnny replies, ‘I wasn’t hiding. I was just putting the shopping away.’ Carla asks him how much he heard and tells him that she ‘was in a terrible, sickening place.’ Johnny claims that he won’t say anything to Robert though not long after he spots Robert, and, coming up behind him says,’ Me and you need some words, sunshine!’ Johnny tells Robert that he must pull out of the deal for the Bistro and that he, Johnny knows about Robert and Carla. Robert does say that he will not tell anyone but he does have that weapon should he need to use it. Robert says he doesn’t know what ‘Daddy/daughter’ issues he and Carla may have, but Robert wants to be left out of it.
Anna and Kevin seem to be back on track and despite Phelan’s presence and his approach to Kevin in the Bistro about work, Kevin stands firm. Surely Phelan won’t let it rest at that.
Rita couldn’t be kinder if she tried. Jenny is consuming all Rita’s time and emotions and is determined to help Jenny over her past difficulties. Rita is super defensive of Jenny and is setting her stall out to try to make people understand why Jenny behaved as she did. Norris is cold and cutting in his comments but Rita says that, ‘If everyone who Norris had insulted dropped dead, I’d be up to my knees in corpses.’ In the café Kate is rather unpleasant to Jenny until Rita invites her to sit down and hear the full story. Most movingly Jenny tells of how she ‘Can’t put it into words how it feels to throw soil on your child’s coffin.’
Sally is concerned for Rita. ‘It’s only a matter of time before someone gets hurt- Rita.’ Sally is concerned that Sophie ran out of the pub crying. Sally is angry and tells Rita that she is not Mother Theresa, just in case Rita had had a crisis of identity. ‘You work in a sweet shop.’ Sally reminds her. ‘Sally adds. ’Don’t come crying to me when she’s smothered you in your bed for your pension book.’ Is Jenny trustworthy? Does she, as Tim says she does, deserve a second chance? He tells everyone how he rules the roost in their house and no one knows that that is untrue more than Tim himself, who admits to feeling a little anxious about going home and facing the music. Sally’s command or a fresh pint - and the pint won. Anyway, Tim brings Kate back home with him to speak to Sophie.
Sally is spying but says she is just concerned for Sophie’s welfare. That may be part of it but Tim is bang on the money when he says, ‘No you’re not. You’re just concerned that you’re missing out on juicy gossip.’
Sally in the factory shows insensitivity once more. After having sold her engagement ring because they are in debt, Fiz is late back to work. Sally has a go at her, then Fiz explains and says that from now on it will be Fresco Fundamentals which, Sally claims, she wouldn’t give to a dog. For Sally it’s always Freshco Finest. It is Kate who points out how insensitive Sally is.
Later Johnny returns to Carla’s and though she is still brusque and curt with him she is the warmest she has ever been towards him. He brings up the night that Robert and Carla got together and explains how he feels guilty about it. As Carla points out not only has she just discovered that he is her dad, the last thing she wants to do is discuss her sex life with him. Quite so Carla.
Instead of chatting to Carla and eating Michelle’s Shepherd’s Pie, Johnny should be attending the dinner party that the O’Driscolls are holding. Luckily Eva accompanies Aidan. Eva is very glamorously dressed in a figure hugging red dress, believing she was going to a party and is a bit over dressed for a dinner party. Amusingly, when Eva is asked if she would like a pashmina, she replies that she will drink anything. Best line of the night! Despite her feeling uncomfortable, Eva gets Aidan out of a tricky situation when she volunteers to do a turn, a rendition of Big Spender. And what a great job she made of it!
Aidan is furious with his father for not turning up, and berates him for not turning up at the party. ‘You’ve let me down tonight – again. I’m getting used to this.’
Mary is eating Penguin biscuits by way of comfort while sobbing on the sofa and listening to Dido, while comparing herself to Dido and claiming that they are both ethereal creatures. Dev is clearly worried about her. He calls on Erica to see if she can help. Erica tells Mary that they are worried about her. Mary is holding a book called A Scarlet Letter, by Nathaniel Hawthorne. Mary tells Dev and Erica that she may as well sew a great big H on her favourite knitwear. Erica reminds her that whore begins with W, which Mary takes as proof of what Weatherfield thinks of her. Mary was planning to sew H for Harlot.
