Todd and Billy back together - Yay or Nay?

It looks like we'll see Todd try to back out of his partnership with Phelan in order to save his relationship with Billy.  You can read all about that here.

This is good news for this Coronation Street fan. I love Todd and Billy together. Billy is good for Todd in all sorts of ways. 

We've had a same-sex wedding in Coronation Street before, when Sophie and Sian made it to the altar, although the marriage didn't take place.  Perhaps it's time for a gay wedding that actually goes ahead this time... and perhaps that couple could be Billy and Todd?

So, what you do say about the possibility of these two getting back together - Yay or Nay?

nay!

Rapunzel said...

Yay. Although I was hoping that Todd was working undercover for the Police and hadn't actually moved over to the dark side. This suggests that's not the case.

Rapunzel I think you are right - I guess we were hoping for at least a little bit of intrigue on the street, but nope.

Zagg said...

Nay. It's silly for the vicar to take up with the likes of Todd, the user. This will turn into another Jenna/Sophie debacle. Billy will give up everything for a dead end relationship. Then he will just become useless on the street.

Nay. The latest plot twist with the bishop just reveals that Billy lusts after Todd more than he loves him. He doesn't really know Todd or what he values, but he obviously does find him exceptionally attractive on a physical level.

Surprisingly, the events leading to the bust up have made me think Billy and Sean were pretty good together. Maybe the physical passion wasn't the same (Todd's a hottie, no question) but Sean "got" Billy and the importance of his spirituality in a way Todd doesn't. Sean admired Billy for his principles, even if at times he was jealous of them. But Todd, who believes in nothing, treats Billy's commitment to someone higher with contempt, puzzlement, indifference.

A three way triangle between Todd, Sean, and Billy with Billy torn between the two (for different reasons) might be interesting.

Todd and Tracy should definitely get back together in the florist shop. Tracy becomes bearable, they seem to go well together.

The original question is a no from me too.

Linda Shockley said...

I guess I'd have to say nay. I laughed at the speculation that there could be a gay wedding that actually happens. Hell, I'd like to see any wedding actually happen without someone getting blindsided and the wedding be canceled. I think in all the years I've watched Corrie, only the Kirk/Beth wedding actually was completed.

Humpty Dumpty said...

No, I think Todd has been the catalyst for Billy to leave the church for another profession eg social work - which has already been hinted at in an article that I read somewhere. The irony will be that when Billy has got over his anger and is free to be with Todd, he will have moved on in his life. Love is all about being in the right place at the right time so we could have a poignant story of what might have been.

I think they will just stretch this storyline out as far as they can - that's why Todd is doing the bouncing back & forth - good guy/bad guy. Getting rather tedious. Actually Billy isn't much better - he should decide where his real passion in life works. Just do it.

Cobblestone said...

I'm saying yes. There's still interesting mileage in the relationship (that one scene a couple of months back with Todd intelligently discussing the Church's attitude to gay rights with the Bishop - something that could never have happened with Sean - was worth the storyline in itself). And people don't just change for good and all overnight; of course Todd would be tempted back to his wicked ways (whatever caused them in the first place). It's more authentic to watch someone try to be better and lapsing (Peter Barlow & the bottle) than magically sorting themselves out overnight (Leanne's drug problem or Simon's anger issues). On the other hand, it's not always so interesting in narrative terms. There's a balance to be struck - but I think both Todd & Billy are more interesting together/wanting to be together than the alternative (Billy & Sean / Toad)

Nay. Billy is an established professional, Todd is a drifter dabbling in jobs. They are both attractive and gay but those are superficial. They don't share the stuff that makes a relationship last. Todd doesn't cotton Billy's fundamental decency, Billy couldn't be conniving if he tried. Sean isn't intelligent enough for Billy (unless we need a repeat of Deirdre and Ken on tv, books, holidays,...). Todd is but it's still not enough to sustain a relationship over time. All that, and, IMO, it's way too soon to be a living together committed couple let alone one considering marriage. As far as the vicarage goes, they dont care that you have a male partner, they care that you aren't married. Role models don't shack up.

coconno196 said...

Yay for me. In spite of his apparently now being in cahoots with Phelan, I'm sure Todd is basically a good person and his feelings for Billy could keep him on the straight and narrow. But he does need to go back to his law studies and get himself a job commensurate with his abilities. All these dead-end jobs bore him and I think that's why he gets drawn into plotting, he wants a challenge. But I agree it's too soon for them to shack up, and that it's the not being married which is a problem for the Church, not being gay.

Beth said...

I'm more interested in Todd and Tracy and will they get back together in the shop. They were much more fun to watch (and I tend to dislike Tracy with anybody). However Billy does bring out Todd's nicer side so I'd say generally Yes.

Anonymous said...

It's a nay for me as well. I completely agree with Zagg and Anon 20.39's comments.
I just don't think they have a future together. Todd has absolutely no respect for Billy's profession.
I'd hate to see Billy leave the church for Todd.
As for the complaints to the Bishop - in my humble opinion it has nothing to do with the fact that Billy is gay. At the end of the day - Billy is a Vicar who works for the church, lives in a home belonging to the church and should be setting an example for his parishioners. A Vicar should not be having sleepovers with their partner at the Vicarage whether they are gay or straight.

There is a tradition of career professionals getting into relationships with street residents then losing careers. Does Billy know how to stitch knickers or drive cabs? I am saying they will get back together, he will leave the church, roam around the street for a couple of years.with Todd. The writers will run out ideas and he will be written off.

Maricha said...

Nay, although I just don't like Billy, it's clear that in any profession he has, he'll care for those who rely on him while Todd is so needy that he'd resent it. He would find a way to sabotage Billy in social work or anything similar. Todd needs someone less Dependant on his good name and less caring. Sean at least understood Billy's commitment to his parishioners but Billy didn't appreciate him for that.
