Jack finds Paul in the back yard – It breaks Jacks heart to tell the pigeons that he is moving to Blackpoo. Paul tries to convince Jack to stay (just so his secret of the loan can stay safe) Jack knows that Vera’s mind will NOT change and they will be moving. Jack re-assures Paul that they will not lose touch. Paul starts to feel the guilt and starts to tell what he has done to Jack and Vera…
Watching, I never thought Paul would actually admit to what he has done.
Tyrone is inside and listening from the kitchen and hears every word of what Paul has done. He becomes enraged and tells him – he knew it all along, that he was up to something and made him (Tyrone) look bad.
Jack apologizes to Tyrone. Jack and Paul leave because Jack does not want Vera to hear what has happened as it will be the death of her.
In the Rovers, Paul tells Jack that he can eventually pay off the loan. Yeah, right… apparently, it was taken over 7 years but he might be able to reduce it. Jack realizes he cannot sell the house because Vera must never find out about it.
Jim is at the Streetcars office, talking to Lloyd and Steve. When Steve notices he is in his socks. Apparently, someone at the hostel he is staying at took a fancy to them and all of his belongings. Steve is mortified and goes to the Rovers to pick up some shoes and extra clothes he may have for him. He puts on the new/old shoes and departs.
Steve tries to think of some ideas of jobs for Jim. He can’t work at Streetcars because of his record, definitely NOT the Rovers. Steve has come up with the brilliant idea of Jim being a valet at Streetcars, cleaning cars… we’ll see what Jim thinks.
Maria and Liam are in couple land and extremely lovey dovey with each other. Liam states there isn’t any food in the house and they must go out for a Full English. First he must take Ozzy out, to do his business. Maria acts disgusted. Doesn’t she know she will have to change nappies (diapers)?
Liam stops in to see Michelle at the Rovers. Michelle who tells him that Ryan thinks he is being followed. Liam does not believe a word of it – Michelle is not sure if Ryan is making it up or not.
A little later Ryan comes in and asks Liam for a ride to school. Liam refuses as he must take Maria out for brekkie.
Liam has been waiting for Maria who tells him it takes ages to manage to look this good. (I love that line) Liam suggests that Maria moves in with him so that she does not have to go home. He tells her that, it is his house and he will tell Jamie…
Meanwhile, at the Rovers Ryan is late and she is worried. On the Street, Ryan is walking towards the pub when the man in the blue car starts yelling out his name. Ryan is freaked out and runs into the Rovers telling them what has happened. Liam and Maria rush outside to see the blue car driving off. No one has seen the license plate number. They all stand there in shock.
Becky sees Jason locking up at the yard and she walks over to pass the time. She offers to buy him a pint at the Rovers. David thinks that may not be the best idea. But she tells him, why not? They have nothing to hide…
Sarah is at home watching some television, looking glum. Gail tries to give Sarah some advice – mainly to be patient until time provides its own healing. David arrives and disturbs the peace. Sarah starts shouting at David. Gail turns on Sarah but she is feeling very isolated and depressed. Who can blame her?
Sarah becomes enraged for David trying to yet again break up her marriage – when it hasn’t even begun.
Gail cannot take the bickering any more and tells Sarah maybe she and Jason should leave. As it is simple that Sarah and David will never get along. Sarah flips out and yells that it should not be her to leave as it is David who is the instigator. Rightly so!! Gail points out that Sarah has a husband to take care of her, (what is this, 1950?) and that one day Sarah will understand. I have to say, this is one of the times I wish I could shake Gail!
Gail is convinced that David should stay as he needs the healing. Blah!
David smiles – thinking he has won this round.
