CARLA'S HIT BY A BLAST FROM THE PAST. As a still seething Peter takes Carla’s advice he heads to the bistro and attempts to apologise for hitting Nick. Sick of the whole situation Leanne stuns him when she reveals her plan to move away from Weatherfield with Nick and take Simon with them. Enraged by Leanne’s news Peter seeks out Carla, who is busy at the factory. Carla asks Peter if they can talk about this later but this only angers Peter further and he verbally launches into Carla, accusing her of putting her work before Simon. As Peter continues to rant at Carla a mysterious man enters the factory and pins Peter up against the wall, ordering him to lay off Carla. Peter is stunned when a shaken Carla reveals the true identity of the man now stood before them.
OWEN BOTTLES UP HIS FEARS FOR IZZY. A troubled Faye throws her new trainers in the bin and then lies to Anna that she must have lost them. Anna attempts to confide her worries about Faye’s recent behaviour to Owen but he is clearly distracted and in no mood to listen. Owen’s bad mood is later clearly demonstrated when he snaps at Gary as he excitedly tells his boss how much he is looking forward to being a dad. Izzy attempts to talk to Owen about her pregnancy but is stunned by his reaction. Will Owen reveal his true feelings about his fears for Izzy’s future?
EMILY TAKES PITY ON TRACY. Spurred on by Steve’s cash offer, Beth is delighted when she beats Tracy to it and secures a rental agreement on a nearby flat. A miffed Tracy is forced to ask Ken and Deirdre to take her back but when Ken refuses to have her, Emily steps in and offers a grateful Tracy a room.
Elsewhere Roy snubs Hayley’s dance class presentation evening to play chess with Mary.

I fear the opportunity for some great comedy with Beth and Tracy living together has now been quoshed as boring as watching paint dry Kevin Wobster is moving in with his strange staring child. WHY?

Nick and Leanne are just going to up and leave with a child that isn't theirs? Sure. Don't call the cops or anything Peter ... what a waste of a good character. He used to have a pair.

The I am leaving Weatherfield mantra being trilled yet again, we all know she isnt what is the point of saying it, like Eileen before her?

I'm not understanding this situation where Leanne can call all the shots, no matter how small, regarding Simon. I know she has temporary custody, but surely Peter would have been given considerable visitation rights, etc. but she's acting as if he is a psychopathic axe-murder. Does Leanne have to throw those teenage looks everytime Carla or Peter do or say something she's not happy with! As if Nick would up and leave the Bistro which he just started up....not as if he has a stash of money lying about.....and yes wouldn't the courts have something to say about Leanne up and leaving with Simon?

Have to say the Sports Day was a welcome break....very funny. Great to see Lloyd, Steve and Eileen back together where they belong in the cab office! The highlight of that episode was when Lloyd told Tracy Steve despised her.

LOL!! Frosty....Kevin Wobster and his staring child.....

It's very insulting that the writers treat us this way. We know that Leanne would never be allowed to disappear with Simon - even if she was his birth mother. And if Peter wanted to play dirty, he could come up with some allegation against Nick. We don't have stories anymore; it's all plot devices. Tptb needed to find a way to write out Peter and Carla for a few months, and to hell with authenticity.

EastEnders do these things so much better. Most of the time they don't explain cast absences and why is it necessary? Kirk has been missing for months, Dr Carter is rarely seen.... They could just say Peter is at York races or Carla is in Scotland meeting a client, if events arise where their absence needs to be explained.
