Hiya! It's just Jordan with this week's Wednesday review. I think we all know by now that there is more chance of Liz McDonald dressing her age than me being on time with my reviews. But still, like the Kylie song says - it's Never Too Late! Here we go...
As morning dawns on the cobbles, Bethany is trying to persuade Sarah that vlogging is a realistic career opportunity. She declares that she will vlog about hair and fashion, apparently setting her sights on becoming the next Zoella. If that fails, she'll blog about life in Weatherfield. Gary notices them and Bethany is thrilled when he compliments her hairstyle. It would appear that the sixteen-year-old is falling fast for the gym instructor who is dating her mother and being a Soapland resident, she puts a daft plan into action. Leanne has booked a last minute getaway for herself and Nick, meaning that their apartment will be empty overnight. When she pops round to number 8 with some leftover food from the Bistro for the Platts, she kindly offers Sarah her own getaway only a street away. Unfortunately, Sarah's plans are scuppered when a desperate Michelle asks her to work that night since Sean has called in sick. This leaves Bethany with the opportunity to utilise the luxuries of an empty apartment. Earlier in the day, Leanne had stopped to compliment Bethany on her appearance. At the risk of sounding old, she told the feisty sixteen year old how things have changed since her day, in which women had to wait for men. Her observation planted an idea in the impressionable teenager's head, one which will almost certainly turn out to be monumentally bad.
"You're inviting me round?"
"Yeah. See you later"

Maria questioning her existence as a victim of the Soapland Curse
Anna has managed to move from the hospital bed and is getting ready to come home. She's still painfully adamant that her short-lived relationship with Kevin is over. Kevin is refusing to talk about it and is blocking everyone out. That is until he is paid a visit by Our Pal Sal. His ex-wife-twice-over gives him a talking to which appears to be in the field of reverse psychology. She assures him that no-one would blame him if he walked away from his relationship with Anna because of her injuries. It's not like they've been together for long anyway. We don't get to see Kevin's reaction but we were treated to some more of Sally's wisdom later on in the factory. In an attempt to comfort Alya after the seven-year-affair of Shaif and Sonia was exposed, she begins to tell her how she has also been on the wrong end of an affair. Giving her deep feelings on the matter, Mrs Seddon-Webster-Webster-Metcalfe only mentions Molly (not Natalie Barnes) and the fact that she has also had numerous affairs must have just slipped her mind. The cheek of it! But then - it is Sally, so it's not too far from reality that she would only point out the mistakes of other people. After droning on about hurt and mistrust, she inadvertently tells an oblivious Alya that her granddad has done a flit to Newcastle.

After the shock and the pain, it's the humiliation"
|Have you forgotten about this, Sally?|
Elsewhere, Eileen is surprised by a tart (no, not Rosie Webster - she's not back til February). Phelan has treated her to a posh treat from a fancy patisserie, no doubt in an attempt to keep her sweet. An appointment at the GP reveals that Eileen is not going deaf - her ears just needed a good clean. And if you're wondering what the picture of Tracy at the top of this post is all about - well, that is the face of an acquitted murderess after dropping and breaking her phone whilst almost being knocked over by Luke.

Did you see the amount of wax?!"
A good episode with some fun moments as well as some serious. A nice mixture. And though I find the Caz/Maria/Bloody Scissors storyline very silly, it is quite intriguing so far!
Thanks for reading!
