I’m declaring Friday ‘Opposite Day’ on Corrie. Why? Because I think I was supposed come out of the episode feeling bad for Claire and hating David….but I don’t know, I kind of felt the opposite way.
Claire, yes, she has every right to be angry and she’s being generous with ‘letting’ Ashley see the kids (although technically, I don’t think Josh is legally her son is he? so really….). But seriously, every time I hear her talk to Ashley I think, ‘Yeah, yeah he did you wrong…but you know what? You’re just a bitch.’.
David…yeah I’m feeling bad for him. Personally, I don’t know how most people survive their teenage years. Most 13 – 21 year olds seem hell bent on killing themselves with stupid risks to begin with and I think no one really has clear thinking during those years and most of us do really stupid things. Unfortunately, whether it’s the person or just fate, some of us face bigger consequences than others for those stupid actions. I’m not excusing David, I just kind of wish this character could catch a break and have something positive happen in his life cause I think he would turn around.
Anyway, that’s my two cents worth…now on with the update
I Think Bethany Slipped Into A Coma, But With Acting Like That, Who Can Really Tell
The ambulance comes and whisks Bethany to the hospital and the family follows. The doctor presses the family to find out if there were any drugs lying around medicinal or recreational. Everyone, including David swear up and down that there were no drugs.
Later, Jason sits David down and tells him the truth, that Bethany is in serious trouble and that he needs to tell the truth. David finally breaks down and tells him about the ‘E’. Jason quickly tells the doctor and of course everyone, especially Sarah, wants to kill David. It gets worse when he tells them that he hid them in one of Bethany’s toys.
Audrey tells him that if he ever has kids he’s going to look back on this day with shame. David goes home feeling probably as low as he ever has and yeah, watching him sit on the floor crying I felt bad for him.
Oh, and Bethany is in intensive care now.
Haley is out of sorts and when the factory girls come into the cafe they let Roy know…Vicky adds that Hales seems a bit discombobulated.
Roy is a bit nonplus about Haley, and is stressed about Becky use of paper towels. When she tells him to chill out and that he’s ‘doing her head in’, he says that ‘doing my head in’ is probably the most vulgur expression to come into the English language in the last 20 years. Becky retorts with, ‘I’ll give you ‘discombobulated’. Roy responds by wagging his finger and her and saying, ‘Becky, Becky!’ (It made Glacia giggle.).
Meanwhile back at the factory, Karla is concerned and has a chat with Haley. She gives her the Friday off to spend with Roy on his birthday and tellls her she can take more time if she wants.
In Other News
Claire still mad at Ashley. But really who cares.
Tyrone and Kev deliver the vibrating to the Duckworths who give three cheers to ‘our Paul’ and tell Tyrone to be a good lad and get Paul a brew. Later, Vera tries out the massaging fingers and makes some rather disturbing noises and pleads for it to ‘go faster’, ‘don’t stop’ and ‘yes, yes right there.’.
Jamie’s mom, Carol, has sobered up and is getting married. Jamie asks Violet to be his ‘plus 1’ at the wedding. The girls in factory btw are coming up for a name for the baby. Vicki suggests ‘Zbigniew’. I have a good friend named ‘Zbigniew’ (or ‘Zbig’ as we like to call him. He tried ‘Paul’ for awhile, but it never took…) so I think this is a great idea.
Dev phones in an order for sandwich with pickles NOT chutney and he makes Becky repeat this back to him so he knows she’s got it. Yeah, yeah cries Becky, taking sandwich orders is not rocket science and she hangs up and reminds Roy to give Dev his chutney.
While waiting for said sandwich, Dev preforms the Habenera from ‘Carmen’
- L’amour est enfant de Bohème,
- il n’a jamais, jamais connu de loi;
- si tu ne m’aimes pas, je t’aime:
- si je t’aime, prends garde à toi!
Oh Dev, you little ‘oiseau rebelle’, you!
