So more smug Rob and sneering faced Tracy. Just brilliant. Its characters like them that just make me want to turn off, so bloody fed up with Tracy. And to top it off Kate Ford cannot act, why the hell does she keep getting kept on?

Is Peter Barlow the worst bookie ever?

I'm no gambler, but even I know that no bookie worthy of the name would ever accept £500 on an accumulator that if paid out would bankrupt the business. Certainly not without laying parts of the bet off with other bookies to mitigate any potential loss - which it seems Peter doesn't even do.

Frankly, if he's that stupid it's no wonder his bookies' business is in trouble.

Peter's had a personality transplant. They're trying to say that Peter has switched his addiction to gambling, but he wouldn't do it on his own doorstep. Of all the problems that Peter has had, his business sense wasn't one of them. If he really wanted to gamble, he'd go to the races. Agree with Billy Niblick, Peter would have offset the bet with other bookies. It's a clunky plot device to get Rob and Tracy in the shop. Can only hope they are due a spell in prison at the end of this storyline. Can't Peter grass them up to the authorities and reveal their criminal backgrounds?

Rob and Tracy cannot open a pawn shop. They both have criminal records so the storyline is just dumb, but the acting all around Peter/Carla/Tracy/Rob was spot on.
The scene with Peter and Carla on the phone to each other when they're only a few feet away was sweet.

I don't think Rob can sue Peter for his winnings anyway.

If this is the end of Peter and the bookies, I'd like to see him train to be a drugs and alcohol counsellor. He'd be comfortable with Carla being the main breadwinner if he was pursuing a true vocation.

I have to say I enjoyed seeing the smug look wiped off Peter's face. I think that Carla and Peter are the worst Corrie couple ever.
I am a minority I know....but I like Tracy and I want to see something good happen for both her and Rob. :-)

Hayley is such a classic character and it pains me to think of her leaving under permanent and deadly circumstances. It's like pulling off a nasty Band-Aid - I want it all to just happen fast and be over with. So sad.
