My Corrie predictions for 2015

(This was posted on State of the Street. Posted here with permission)

I love to speculate on what might happen on Corrie. Some of it is based on standard soap plots but some speculation is based on pure, off the wall predictions. So, just for fun, here's what *could* happen on Coronation Street in 2015:

Nick and Carla get together and surprisingly, it's a really good match. After all, he's not a rapist, he's not a murderer, he's not cheating on anyone else (that is, if Erica is out of the picture. I don't think that's going to be anything long term). I think Nick has enough of both arrogance and sympathy to work well with Carla's personality.

Kylie gets her life back together, perhaps after a rehab stint or a stay with Becky to get her head and body straight. I think someone will find her working in a run down caff or pub somewhere, maybe in Weatherfield or maybe somewhere else like Liverpool or Sheffield or Leeds, perhaps Eva or even David himself. She'll be pregnant with David's child, she'd have left on Christmas Day not realizing she was pregnant so will be about 6 months along, depending on how long Paula Lane's maternity leave is. She will eventually prove to him that she's left the old life behind. David will take her back for the children's sake and the new baby, a boy.

Julie and Dev marry, with Mary's blessing, having gone through a rough patch of adjustment with Julie and Mary at odds. Mary moves into the corner shop flat, finally getting a home and Julie works in the corner shop which puts Sophie's nose out of joint.

Maddy decides to go back to school to make something of her life. Sally approves. Sophie gets jealous and stroppy when Maddy makes new friends and finds out she's really good at her classwork. Sophie spends all her time sulking. No change there, then.

If Sean can keep control of his jealousy and insecurity, he and Billy might just have a chance at happiness but it won't be smooth sailing. Billy's church will have objections and it will be difficult for Sean to accept that Billy's committment to the church will be at least as important as his personal life, probably moreso. Emily will be Billy and Sean's champion in spite of her own personal misgivings because she still believes everyone has a right to love whom they choose. Instead of a tree, Auntie Em climbs the church bell tower in protest, hanging a rainbow banner off the belfry.

The real Gavin is either already dead from the heart ailment or will show up and be a real wrong'un, full of resentment and contempt for his father. The Gavin we have now will admit he pretended at first as a joke but got tangled up in the situation and grew to really like the Platt family, and Michael's heart condition is making it even harder to admit he was an imposter. Either situation causes Michael to collapse but luckily, he's able to get a heart transplant. He survives and marries Gail. The real Gavin will try to push out the fake one and will treat Michael and Gail badly, perhaps trying to rip them off but the fake Gavin will prove to be the real hero.

Sarah Lou and Bethany will return from Italy. Bethany will be as all the young teens are that are new to the street and be a real handful, spoiled and contemptuous of this little back street neighbourhood after the glamourous life in Milan. She's going to be 15 this year so is just the right age to have the boys drooling. Craig has a crush but she makes a beeline for Zeedan, who, in spite of her not being Muslim, finds himself in the same boat as his father and sister.

Sarah will cut a swath through a lot of men and will be a Tracy Barlow clone. She'll set her sights on Luke, Gavin, Gary (probably just a one night stand), and will be entangled in one love triangle after another. Maria will be yet again dumped after Sarah and Luke have a go.

Tracy will continue to pull Tony's chain and end up in a full affair. When Liz finds out, there will be hell to pay. Deirdre will return and will finally stand up to Tracy and not make excuses for her anymore. Ken will sigh and retreat to the library.

Katy leaves the Street, looking for a life. Alya's knicker designs are a huge hit and she and Carla become very successful partners. Yasmeen becomes a good friend to Roy, offering a supportive shoulder. Roy starts to pick up the pieces of his life and even, finally, gets his driving license as Hayley always wanted.

Fiz returns and we find out that looking after Cilla has driven her to drink. She struggles with booze addiction until one of the children is injured because she was drunk and neglectful. This finally pulls her up and she admits she has a problem.

Mary will meet a rather odd binman, a tall, thin men who keeps muttering about how things keep coming around full circle. He has a particular fondness for hanging around outside Freshcos, looking longingly in through the windows, that is, when he's not looking up at the stars. He and Mary have a connection, based on their eccentric outlook on life and fondness for trivia. She lets him live in her campervan since she's now living in the shop flat. She finally convinces him to come into the pub one night and he's recognized by a number of people. It's Curly!

Steve hits bottom after the van crash and finally starts getting help. Michelle is so ashamed at how she treated Steve that she runs away to Ireland (we can only hope!). Chesney and Sinead die of boredom. So do Lloyd and Andrea. Unless Andrea and Steve have a fling, Andrea being much more fun than Michelle but far less unstable than Becky.

How about you, dear readers? Let us know what you think will happen in the coming year!

I certainly hope you mean Michael. :) I love your predictions, particularly the idea of Mary and Curly together! I agree that Sarah and Bethany will probably return as homewreckers, although I'd hate to see Bethany get mixed up with Zidane as I really despise that character and hope he goes the same way that the surplus Mortons did.

I really like Billy (the vicar) and hope he and Sean make a go of their relationship. Enlighten me, as I'm Canadian, I assume the C of E permits gay clergy?

I hope Fiz does not become an alcoholic.We've seen enough of that with Peter including the 'endangering chid'storyline when Simon almost died in the fire because of his drinking.Perhaps Fiz doesn't return at all leaving the door open for Tyrone and Maria to get back together should Luke betray her with Sarah.

Knowing Gail Michael will probably drop just dead just after they've gotten married.

Kylie and a crack-addicted baby. That'd turn Gail's hair white.

Love it, Tvor. Here's hoping your speculation of Andrea and Steve getting together does come true, and that Michelle (madly hoping...)

Tvor said...

Oooh Defrost, yes of course, that should be Michael collapsing. Fixed it.

It's all in fun, of course. I'm probably way off the mark with all or most of the predictions but it's fun anyway

Tvor loved reading your blog. However, I dislike Kylie and Fizz and am hoping they don't return. I think Steve and Andrea would make a cute couple. Not looking forward to the return of Sara Louise never cared for her character. It will be rather awkward with 2 former lovers on the street - Todd and Jason (Jason in real life her former partner and father of her daughter Scarlet).

I'd love

1. To see more of Carla and Roy's friendship

2. More of Sally, Tim and Kevin

3. A return for Deirdre

4. A new male Barlow (someone to replace Peter)

5. A new love interest for Carla would also be good. As long as the actor playing him is excellent (it would be even better if he looks like Sean Maguire or Richard Armitage). And as long as it's a slow burner storyline and they don't just throw Carla in to a new relationship because she's been single for a while.

6. A good return storyline for Sarah and something more interesting than David and Kylie's on/off relationship, for the Platts to focus on.

Didn't tina o'brien have relationshiрs with both the actors who рlay todd and jason in real life too? And yes she has a baby to the jason actor.

Like it!

You should join Corrie as a storyliner.

My only reservation is that I don't want to see Mr Watts back in the show. By all means give Mary a love interest, but don't let it be Curly.

I like Fiz, so I'd have her show Alya her old design book. So far, Alya seems to be a decent young lady, and I could easily see her giving Fiz credit for styles she pitches to Carla. Make them the fun Underworld design team, bringing back the old sparkly creative Fiz in the process, and leave Sally in the office with her spreadsheets.

Sarah has some pretty heady business experience, and maybe a big bankroll if Uncle Steven sold the business. Carla's new partner? Rival?

Do. Something. With. Sophie! If Sally and Kevin can't make her see sense, maybe Dev can. And should, by NOT promoting her to something better in his empire for lack of qualifications.

abbyk said...

Oh, yeah, and one of the criminal masterminds finally gets caught. James Barlow, Terry Duckworth or Lewis, one Street family should have restitution.

Canadian watcher said...

No need to bring back the actress who played Sarah Louise before, if she's got history with another actor. She wasn't the original anyway. How many Nicks and Tracys have we had?
