So, it turns out that the dude Liam is slamming up against the wall is actually Ryan’s dad. Well, he says he is anyway. Once Liam and Ryan get back to the Rovers Liam tells Michelle what the guy is claiming. This must have confused Michelle, unless our girl has a secret.
Later, at the pub, Michelle, Steve and Liam talk about the whole mess. Steve doesn’t seem convinced that Michelle didn’t cheat on Dean. Can you blame him?
Liz is not happy with Jim working at Streetcars and worries that Jim will only try to put a fist into her midsection wrench into her plans.
At Streetcars Jim assumes that Eileen will not want to work with him and does his best to get into her good graces. Ever the obsessive loving guy once Steve strolls in Jim is all about when he can see his uni-brow granddaughter. He must be wondering, like we all are, where the hell she is.
Eileen and Jim continue their witty repartee at Streetcars HQ until Liz – AKA Elizabeth – comes in to see Jim. She wants to tell him to steer clear of her. Probably, the best way to make sure someone stays away from you, is to not go looking for them. But, to each their own.
Later Liz tells Jim that she is getting married and tells him not to try to ruin the wedding in some overly romantic gesture where he interrupts the wedding telling her that she doesn’t really love Alan McKenna in front of all the guests attempts to get her back.
That’s right, Liz went looking or Jim to tell him to stay away from her and to not try to win her back because she has moved on now. OK.
Fizz runs over to Maria to congratulate her on the pregnancy. As Maria isn’t three months along yet, she annoyed that Carla pulled a Paris Hilton.
In the pub Carla comes by to apologize for blabbing. I guess she is sorry, or tries to make them believe she is, but since her face can’t really show emotion, I’m unsure.
Remax called to tell Very they found the perfect little spot for them in Blackpool. Jack tells Vera that they can’t afford to buy the place. Vera is confused and Paul is worried that she will find out what a rat he is.
Later Jack lies to Vera telling her that he loaned the money to Paul for the restaurant. Vera is taken aback by the news and has to go have a lie down. Paul has the Charles de Gaul to thank Jack for covering for him. Because, coming clean to Vera or perhaps not stealing the money in the first place are not really options right now.
At the end of the day, Vera is heartbroken that they can’t move to Blackpool. It is a simple dream that can’t come true. Jack is heartbroken that he had to lie to Vera. Great job, Paul. I hope you get beat up.
The Platts are at dinner and normally there are fireworks when this dysfunctional collection of idiots and psychos gather around a table. Steven talks about going to set up his business in Milan. David talks about wanting to do something with his life – something other than terrorizing his family, I assume. Gail smiles at David because she is an idiot.
David spends the evening clearly trying to impress Steven. I guess he is looking for another victim. Again only Sarah sees through him. Audrey doesn’t believe her because Sarah is never right about David, his motives, or his ability to cause harm.
