UK Time Monday November 12th 2007 – Episode 2
Yesterday two of my co-workers hovered around my desk asking nervous questions about the street and CBC programming. I had to assure them several times that yes the street will be on, no they will not just jump two week, no there will not be double episodes for a couple weeks and sadly the Morton family will still be on the show.
Yes, last night was the triumphant return of the soapiest of soaps. But, I found that I didn’t really remember where we left off. So, if you are in the same boat just scroll down and give Mayfair’s update a quick skim.
I have to tell you that I think last night’s episode was a delivery system for Jamie and Violet. Who agrees with me? They finally kiss again. I was pretty happy. I love these two characters together. I think they also have street longevity.
It doesn’t matter that the kiss came after a drunken “I love you man!” moment and that he actually said “you mean a lot to me” or something to that effect. But you don’t have to be hopped up on baby hormones and filled with your gay best friend’s fetus to want that to mean “I love you” and in this case, I think she’s right. So, after a night of drinking in the pub Jamie and Violet finally kiss by the door with Michelle watching making the same face I was making but without the ice cream and chocolate sauce. Oh, bless.
Another lovely moment came with the Platt-Grimshaws. No, I’m not talking about the moment when Jason came down stairs in a tight white long sleeve t-shirt chosen because it lay across his abs so beautifully. I mean when he took Sarah to dinner on her gran’s dime and read a ridiculous story to her that illustrates his love/bafoonery. It was dead sweet. It was also sweet that Sarah responded with “You know what I’m going to do when I get home? Consummate.” I wondered if she planned to do that on her own.
When they got back to number 8 it really hit home for me that they were gonna get it on in her mother’s house, probably one room over, in a bedroom they share with Bethany. That’s why Sarah wanted to do it on the couch. To add to the creepy factor, David watched them make out. Weird.
Lloyd and Steve’s bromance continues to blossom. I’m so glad they got over the whole Kelly thing. Lloyd and Steve are running the worst cab company in all of England and can’t get any drivers to take them into town for a big night out. That’s ok, because they really only need each other.
Claire, on the other had doesn’t need anyone. Although, she swears that she is going to start dating and move on from Ashley. Sure you are, honey.
It looks like Rosie Webster has totally gotten rid of her tart training wheels and launched into full tart mode. The show actually opened with her kissing John Stape. What happened here … Rosie slinked around the classroom, her mother came by to get her and convinced John to resume their lessons. Rosie successfully made John jealous by flirting with a boy her own age – the minx – and John drove them home. Fiz got pissed with John.

Wicky loves the Human League. How could she not. Like Jason and that Rubbish sea lion, she is only human, flesh and blood, born to make mistakes.
Jerry continues to neglect his children whatever their names are.
