All the wit and warmth of Weatherfield, none of the waffle

HMS Sally’s in full sail as she cracks on with her campaign to be elected as independent Weatherfield Councillor. With all the Simon business going on, Ken stands down as her campaign manager and she has to choose between Norris and Mary who both want the job. It’s Norris she chooses, much to Mary’s chagrin.Phelan sabotages the lecky at Kev’s new garage so that Kev will keep him on to fix it. Phelan needs to stay working for Kev because he’s got no more work to go to but Kevin doesn’t know that. However, Anna does. She overhears Phelan on his phone touting for work and throws a wobbler when she finds out Kev’s kept the slime-ball on. Why Anna doesn’t tell Kev about her history with Phelan is beyond me.
Over at Underworld, the girls are in a state and Johnny Connor runs half-way up the stairs when someone says they’ve seen a mouse. It’s not a mouse, but the rustling and food stealing that’s been going on comes out in the open when Marta runs out of the factory hiding under Sean’s coat. Eva comes clean to Aidan and tells him all she knows about Marta hiding in the factory. What neither of them know is where Marta has gone or how far the nasty O’Driscolls are involved in human trafficking. An interesting storyline, to be sure.
As Marta dashes out of the factory, she bumps into Izzy and knocks her to the floor. Izzy’s already in pain and the accident makes things ten times worse. She turns to Erica and takes up her offer of cannabis in the search for pain relief.
Leanne turns Simon into the cops this week after he breaks Kyle’s leg playing footy. Poor Simon. I have always been on his side and I make no apology for it. Being passed from pillar (Peter) to post (Leanne) and with no-one actually wanting him or loving him; having his mum and grandma die. Having to live with trollop Leanne in a tiny little flat. The list goes on. The boy is troubled and needs some help. Turning him into the cops for assault wasn’t the best move, but it’s the one Leanne takes. Simon’s bundled into a cop car on the cobbles in a big noisy fuss and given a very hard time down at the station.
Elsewhere this week, Johnny and Jenny share a drink in the Bistro. A possible friendship and romance brews up at the bar.
Over at the salon, Beth has her hair done by David who uses a new colour on her roots that he’s never used before. Two words, David. Patch test. Beth comes out in a rash all over her face and at first blames the food at the Bistro before Audrey takes responsibility and gives Beth free hairdos for a year to keep her gob shut.
And that’s just about that for this week.
