Yay or Nay - should Izzy forgive Gary?

I was heartily moved by Owen's performance last night on Coronation Street.

The new grandad was having to contend with the fact that baby Jake might not pull through, and even if he does, his daughter Izzy might not have the strength to look after him as her own. 

And on top of all of that, Owen's trying to maintain his relationship with Anna, the mother of the fella who's done the dirty on his daughter.  Well, I was moved, I tell you.

But what about Gary and Izzy? Do you think Izzy should forgive him for trying to kiss Tina - Yay or Nay?  I say Yay.

Yay. Her reaction is wayyyy over the top for a kiss that never even happened. She's become a helluva shrew. Is she one of those wonderful human beings (that I only hear about and have never met!) who has never ever done anything wrong?

I thought the scene with Owen was very touching...hes always shown as a bully, and they opened his character up a bit....Izzy is behaving horribly

It didn't have to come to all this if Tina and Gary didn't act like it was an out blown affair rather than just an attempted kiss. Seriously two times they where caught last week because they had to keep discussing it LOUDLY. But Izzy is being hasty and I am fed up with her crying.

YAY - its cruel to punish Gary for such a small thing - same as Chesney for Katy kissing Ryan, they are parents and supposed to be ADULTS but are acting like teenagers in the playground with their strops.

As for the Bully Boy Owen - the penny suddenly drops that procuring the young local barmaid who happened to be in debt and down on her luck at the time instead of a legal surrogate - to have a child for an unmarried couple that were already shaking was complete lunacy, he bullied Tina and even threatened Tommy if she didnt go ahead, so I certainly do not feel sorry for this buldozing oaf.

Tvor said...

Yes she should. As said above, it wasn't even a kiss only an attempt and she should understand where Gary was coming from, it all got mixed up in the excitement over having the baby. They need to be grown ups and talk it over reasonably.

abbyk said...

Yes she should, and I said so last night. Like Frosty, I think it's a rehash of Chesney and Katy, but worse because instead of petulant teenagers, she's being a petulant adult. He behaved badly, but understood the meaning of 'NO', and he's had a troubled psychological past that was never properly resolved. Have no idea what's up with Izzy, as we've never really seen what makes her tick. This is a one issue tantrum. Totally immature and inappropriate. Make up and move on. And drama, not dramatics, please. Izzy's physical and Gary's psychological challenges vs. baby should be more than enough for good stories.

I don't think Izzy and Gary should be parents in the first place. They have had problems in the past Gary has mental health issues and doesn't handle stress well at all. And not to be cruel or insensitive but Izzy does have severe mobility issues which I would think would make it hard for her to look after a fragile preemie baby. If they do stay together I can see Annie looking after the baby 3/4 of the time. I am watching here in Canada and am starting to dislike both Gary and Izzy.

Agree with Anon 14.17. Nat because they are not suitable parent material. I think people should have the grace to accept the limitations life has placed on them and make the best of what do have with a smile. I find their constant moaning to be a turn off.

Should be Gary forgiving the Izz for having those bizarre staring eyes whenever she encounters him. Beyond me how the Izz can control whether or not Gary sees his 'own' baby?? Didn't feel sorry for Owen as this is just a blip and he will be back to his bully-boys ways once he finds out Tina wants to keep the baby.

Tina's reaction was WAY over the top -- she should have said what she needed to say, extracted a promise that it would never happen again, and drawn a line under it. The more she harps on it, the greater the chances were of someone finding out.

Yay, she should excuse Gary, for reasons already pointed out above. At least Tina has an excuse for acting over the top - pregnancy hormones can do weird things to you - but the others have no excuse for their behavior.

No she shouldn't so if one of your partners kissed or tried to kiss another woman you would forgive them straight away?

Long ago, in a world far away, I got a Fulbright grant to spend a year in Paris. I invited my then boyfriend to join me. During that year, I used my (somewhat) meagre grant to support both of us. By springtime we were rowing regularly. A former student of mine arrived in Paris and, while I was away doing research over for a weekend, my boyfriend tried it on with the student, who rejected him. The student, out of loyalty, told me what had happened. I forgave the boyfriend for his lapse. I've had decades to regret my decision.

No, Izzy, don't let him off the hook. At least no easily.

No. If Izzy can't forgive him for a drunken half assed attempt at trying to kiss Tina, I'd hate to think what she'd do if he actually had kissed her. She'd have his nads in a meat grinder. Plus, she has no right to say if he can see the baby or not..it's Tina's until she signs him over. If I was Gary I'd move out and give Izzy the deep 6. She's turned in to a right head case IMO.

Stephen said...

I say yea. Has she never made a silly mistake? I'd keep a close eye on him, though, shallow lad that he is.

Dilly Daydream said...

Tina should've told Izzy straight away that Gary had tried it on, at least that would've given them time to clear the air before the baby came along. And it would have stopped all the loud whispers in corners.

Anonymous said...

Nay, can't Izzy look after the baby on her own? Without Gary? Yeah he could appear and look after it part time but they don't necessarily have to be together. I agree with Dilly daydream, Tinuh should have told Izzy before the baby was born, instead of dopey Tommeh going and threatening to tell everyone. It'll probably end in disaster though and it will end up to be Tinuh and Tommeh's baby. Then she'll hope in a taxi and leave the street.

Kevin leans into Jenna for a kiss (he was drunk) and Gary does the same to Tina. (Gary's just an ass) I can understand if there was contact but Corrie seems to go way over the top on these kinds of situations.
