Did John Stape have an accomplice?

A lot of people seem to be assuming John gathered up the strength to get up and walk away, but I have another theory - John Stape had an accomplice. John looked toward the ground several times as if he was checking it out before making his great escape.

Who may his accomplice be, I hear you ask? Well, Brian Packham returns next week, is it possible the Bessie Street Headteacher has anything to do with John going missing? I hope we do get an explanation on how exactly he made it out alive.

I have to say, as good as tonight's episode was, I hope this is it. I don't want anymore murders, any more sieges or hostages, car crashes or explosions, Corrie's had more than it's fair share and now it's time to start building up some new stories. I know there's the little 'Rovers Riot' coming up, but I hear thats more comedic than dramatic. Please Corrie, no more over dramatised story lines, at least not until 2012.

Considering he is holding a chain saw in your picture maybe it is Crazy Mary. She had said some thing about chain saw in a past episode

Oh, well maybe Charlotte just got out of her coffin and walked away to become his accomplice. Pretty silly ending tbh. He should of just died i think.

It'd have been better if he'd have fallen onto something soft, but he hit the tarmac

Mad Mary helped John get away,now she'll have him tied up in her mobile home "Misery PT2"

Chewy said...

Haha, that would be a brilliant twist, of course, John will have lost his memory, so Mary will make up a character for him

Not a chance as far as your last plea goes. ITV Network controllers see larger ratings with these types of episodes and demand that Manchester make more of them. The programme is on a very, very slippery slope.....

A dire ending to probably Corrie's worst ever week. I actually laughed at some of the dramatic moments, like the policewomen failing to notice Stape's about turn when he saw them.

Stape must have an invisible cloak, since the police have been two seconds behind him several times and then lose him. The stupid ending, where Stape falls several storeys and then manages to get up and elude a hospital full of police was a fitting end to this rubbish.

Next week, Chesney grows wings and as he flies over the Red Rec, spots Stape bound to a tree branch, with his broken spine tied together with string and a mud pack applied to his fractured skull.

" I actually laughed at some of the dramatic moments". And so you should - that's the whole point!

Long live the Stape, that's all I can say. Can't wait to see him back in the future. They'll allow just enough time to pass so that everyone forgets what he once was, and then everything will be "normal" and all will be right with the world.

I hope he's alive in Hawaii :D Sipping on lemonade on the beach :D

The policewoman did notice John turning around and she and her partner were after him a flash of a scene later, her speaking into the radio.

Anonymous said...

@Tvor Yes they were about 3 yards away from him, but obviously are to stupid to walk and talk into a radio at the same time. When Stape got in the lift they were not in the corridor behind, so there was no threat of him being caught, no suspense. I expect both policewomen stopped to direct a patient to the maternity unit.

Maybe John discintigrated into the ground when he dissappeared. Either that or a U.F.O beamed him into space. Plus, if the there was a U.F.O, the alien would no doubt be scary Mary! Ok, back to reality. I'm guessing that when John hit his head, it knocked some sense into him! He would have legged it. Then in a few weeks time, he would return with an army of mutant kittens which carried shotguns.

Wouldn't it be great if the next Fiz/John opening scene is with she and he in bed and he wakes up and says he had the weirdest dream, then Fiz is actually Suzanne Pleshett ... oh, been done - sorry, never mind. Oh, John wakes up and he's actually called JR, errrr... ooops, that's been done. Oh, well, just glad it's over, but agree the cops were really bad. Would cops in reality have allowed Fiz to negotiate with a sociopathic maniac? The whole thing was screwball.

Blackie Bird said...

I wondered why there wasnt a trained negotiator there and the police just stood there and let Fiz mediate, which just would not happen. Perhaps Fiz could wake and John was in the shower and none of this Fishpaste stuff had happened and John was working happily in the furniture store that would be a great ending.

terrible storyline with an unbelievable ending..really fed up with storylines which start off good and end up sensationalised to the hilt, corries losing its originality and realism,made our police look stupid and if i was a police oficer i would be complaining to corrie,


and after all that snape just gets up and walks off ???? also beckys rampage with amy upstairs and steve just letting her go on a violent psychotic outburst ...no,no, no..insulting our intelligence,,got so annoyed switched off,,couldnt take no more

Yes of course! The storyline is seasoned with many laughs, such as poor old Mrs Fishwick exclaiming "buried beneath the knicker factory" before she expires. John reading Milton's Paradise Lost in the loft and so on. Corrie is excellent at this sort of thing, perhaps the script writers have been reading ancient Greek :-)

Someone quickly removed the injured or dead body, this will form part of the story in the future.
Perhaps the body was hidden in a large rubbish container nearby.

This plot re John Stape is so far the most ridiculous one ever. I'm sorry Corrie, but I no longer watch it regularly because it's become amateurish...Consider. Teacher - who is not really that attractive - has sex with big titted schoolgirl who is mildly attractive - that's just crazy...Then get gaol... then wants to teach again...assumes other teachers identity....murders him...then murders all who know about it to protect himself.
