Be afraid, Tony, be very afraid

(Originally posted on State of the Street. Reposted with permission)

Did you see the way Tracy took that yob out the other night? He sold off stolen goods, fancy countertop mixers, and when Tony told her they were stolen, somehow she got hold of the seller and told him she wanted her money back. He wasn't about to and she provoked him into roughing her up. If that had been Todd, he'd have given the man the keys to the kingdom and run away screaming but not our Tracy.

It pains me to admit it, but I had to admire her. She's not afraid of anyone much less a posturing little toerag like this guy. She's brought down bigger and badder men that that with a blunt instrument and she used another one, her knee, to reduce this one to a snivelling muppet. Tony set the whole thing up. as we discovered, and his plan was to be the hero, saving Tracy from a dire fate worse than death. But there she was, all red lippy and defiance flashing in her eye and his plan went south. You can't really rescue a dame that can hold her own in the ring and yours in her handbag.

Tony's just going to have to get his hands on her business some other way but if I was him, I'd rethink that plan. He might think he's not stupid enough to fall for any of her tricks but he doesn't know Tracy Barlow like we do. She may end up allowing him to own part of the business so that she doesn't go bankrupt and she may end up coercing him into her bed so that she's not cold at night, but I reckon Tracy will get the upper hand in the end, don't you?

It's going to be interesting to watch the battle between these two! Has anyone actually told Tony just how far Tracy is prepared to go?

Hitting someone over the head whilst they are drunk and not expecting it is not toughness of hardness.

Is Rob tough for hitting Tina with the pipe? Didn't think so.

I am glad she is being harassed after the way she is treating others, a good comeuppance is if she lost her stupid shop. Sick of witnessing this horrid creature moping about feeling self pity, yet she wouldn't feel anything for anyone else.

Terence Maynard said of Tony that he was a loveable rogue but clearly the actor's physical appearance makes him more of a hard man. As a result, I don't know what to make of him and have mentally switched off. Tracy, who like most soap/panto villains, has sociopathic tendencies and can't be taken seriously. In fact, isn't that what Tracy fans love about her - that she isn't to be taken seriously? Todd's in the same category.

In fact, I've switched off with a lot of the characters. The viewing figures may mean that the tv is on but viewers (or is only me?) are flitting about doing something else.

Tracy is red in lips and claw and I think she and Tony will be an awful team. He needs to get away from the dreadful Liz anyhow.

I hope Tracy and Tony in a business partnership will result in them both ruining their mutual business and each other. These are two despicable characters who couldn't care less about anyone except their own selves. And they trust no one. I'd love to witness a shipwreck as the business becomes the target of a police sting operation.

Tracy will have the affair as a hold over Tony but I'm not too sure how much Tony would care if Liz found out. Perhaps Eileen discovers them and informs Liz, thereby robbing Tracy of the one ace up her sleeve.
