Coronation Street Episode Review; Weds 10th March 7.30 & 8.30 pm


It's one of my favourite expressions; familiarity breeds contempt. It means that you can have too much of a good thing. Even if you admire something, adore it, devour it, even over-indulge on it - you can still get bored of it. 


Yep, that’s right, I’m talking about the merry-go-round toxic charade of Carla and Peter's co-morbid relationship! 


Tonight, and with Peter back in a hospital bed, his closest family are adamant that he’s been drinking again. We viewers know he hasn’t of course but the Queen of morality, Carla Connor (sex with his nephew, gets drunk and lies about it, etc) seems to think she can enact some kind of moral superiority and ponder flouncing off back to Devon when letchy Lucas turns up at the hospital, offering to whisk her away!



Luckily, Steve is within earshot, but rather than defend his best friend, he tells Carla to leave with Lucas and forget about Peter’s disease! Even Ken pays a visit and is just as forlorn about Peter’s predicament. By the bedside, Carla resides herself to the fact that she can’t stop Peter from drinking, and tells him it’s over.


 Again.  



Elsewhere on the street, Sean’s further swayed by Rhydian’s flash motor and double-glammy lifestyle. Todd is less than convinced and investigates the car's background. Finding out it’s on a two-day rental lease, he tasks Eileen with telling Sean the truth. Rhydian ends up conning Sean even more and convinces him to co-present at a recruitment drive seminar, throwing in a flashy motor, and duping him. Sean is warned by Todd and Eileen but ignores them. 



Alina Pop’s family dog has died. Visibly upset, she seeks solace in Seb who instantly dismisses her sorrow. Bumping into Tyrone, he offers Alina a socially distanced shoulder to cry on, and a warm friendship appears to be forming. Also at Roy’s Rolls, Corey finds out about Nina and Asha’s coupling-up and causing a scene. Later at The Rovers, Alina goes for a drink with Seb and admits she has feelings for someone. Could that someone be Tyrone? 



Back at the Hospital, Carla finds out that Peter wasn’t drunk, it's his liver failing, causing toxins to poison his system that makes his body mimic drunkenness. Irony aside, Carla admits she was wrong and tells Lucas that she’s going nowhere. Lucas doesn’t appear to be giving up though and decides to visit Peter, telling him to let go of Carla - assumingly so he can run off with her to Devon. 



Carla turns down Lucas, apologises to Peter, and it appears these two are star-crossed and vow to permanently be entwined. 


Again.


I do wonder if this merry-go-round is ever going to stop? 



Later, Steve apologises for betraying Peter, but Ken is unforgiving and tells Tracy it may be time for them to leave N0.1.



Elsewhere in tonight’s episodes- Kev and Abi’s choice of wedding venue gets gentrified, so Debbie offers to pay for a venue for them. Abi is not impressed but accepts anyway, vowing to avenge her future sister-in-law.

What kind of accent is that that Rhydian has?

Rhydian has a Welsh name and a Welsh accent.
