Coronation Street Episode Review, Weds August 23

                                                                 

Welcome to another Wednesday Weatherfield Review. A short and sharp synopsis (with opinion) of all the latest goings on, down our favourite fictional street.

Tonight's episode begins with a policeman visiting Seb and looking for Phelan. An edgy looking Phelan sneaks snidely into Roy's Rolls, taking cover. Over at the Factory, Sinead is concerned that Chesney may have agoraphobia (not arachnophobia, Kirk!) after his recent attack and reluctance to leave the house. However, when pushed to leave the house, he decides to take 'the girls' out to town on the bus. Will his anxiety cause an accident? will he notice that Hope has a new head?.

Also heading on a trip is scratch card winner, Shona. It isn't to the viaduct shops though, it's a trip to Weatherfield Prison to see wayward son, Clayton. Upon hearing of his Mums windfall, he fancies a shot at an appeal. Will Shona's will weaken? it seems certain, until it's clear that Macca is involved then the facade falls flat. Back at The Rovers Return, David Platt overhears about the visit. The fine line between love and hate remains blurred, once again.
                                                                     
Another relationship that may cause division is the impending nuptials of BFFs Norris & Mary. The daunted duo have a spa/pub day with an oblivious Jude and a suspicious Angie. At the Spa, Angie pricks Mary's conscience about the lack of spark between her and Norris. I envisage Norris not as a tsunami, more a lacklustre but meaningful wave, in this peculiar 'romance'. Will they actually marry?.

A bemused Phelan finds out the PC plod is, in fact, Nicola's boyfriend, and she wants to build a youth centre for the corrie kids. They surely need it. I admire Nicola's philanthropy but is she a social worker or leader of the council?. She's only just got a mortgage for the flat that Phelan acquired for her. She must have won on a scratch card too?. Anyway, Phelan's surveying skills will prove useful (just avoid the cellar!).

On Chesney's trip into town, he has a crippling panic attack and darts off the Weatherfield wayfarer, leaving the girls on the bus. Luckily, the girls return home safe but the same can't be said for the anxious ex-kebab shop employee. As a search party gathers, it becomes clear that Chesney is still suffering from his recent Bistro stabbing and its a part Sam Aston plays extremely well. In desperation, Sinead frantically calls Chesney's mobile phone with news of the girl's return. The mobile phone rings loudly, whilst sat solely, next to a serene and deep looking Manchester canal.

Let's hope he's ok?.

I'm now off to search for a winning scratch card - I shall be back next week.

See ya!.
