UK Time Monday December 17th 2007 – Episode 2
The episode opens with Michelle and Liam in the parkette across from stalker central. Michelle is in hysterics much to the annoyance of several Corrie Canucksters. How could this boy look just like Dean? Did Dean have an affair? What’s going on?
Liam and Michelle stay outside hoping to catch a glimpse of the boy, but they miss him every time and decide that have to go confront the stalker. Once they get to the door they see the stalker and are invited into his home. Here we are forced to sit through this man telling the story. As it was clearly written by the staff of Young and the Restless, I’ll condense it for you: Due to some medical problems leading to subsequent tests, this family found out they had the wrong son. There was only one other boy born at that Manchester hospital that day (totally likely in a city of 458, 000), he is Michelle’s son. Michelle can’t take it and run out of the house, again in hysterics. Luckily Steve has just pulled up and after not returning his calls all day she runs, in hysterics, into his arms and begs him to take her home. It could be worse Cunucksters, she could be our Katie. Remember that?
Later in the car, Steve is trying to get Michelle to tell him what’s going on. She doesn’t. Basically, this goes on for an eternity – well, for a large part of the episode. By the end of the episode, she tells Steve what’s going on and he is very much the supportive boyfriend doing everything he can to poke holes in the story. Michelle, however, looks worried. Maybe she thinks it could be true? Soon she sees Ryan, hugs him and telling him how much she loves him. I have a feeling we are going to have to see a lot of crying and worry from Michelle.
Sarah Platt is bringing out the big guns now. She has been planting the idea that David is “back” on drugs, but, David never really took drugs. He was certainly never an addict. He was careless and that almost killed that weird looking kid who is on the show from time to time.
For the whole show Sarah tries to get Gail to believe that David is using. The best part is that Sarah tells Gail that he has mood swing. Gail says it is because he’s leaving home. You know, because he loves it so much there.
Anyway, Sarah does repeat her warning to David that he wont be going anywhere. I am starting to believe her.
Mel and her 35 year-old bezzie mate hit the town together and get hammered on Jerry’s dime. Great guy. The bookie son, Dan Mason, first plays all hard to get then shows up at the pub ready to mack on the 35 year-old bezzie mate.
Result! She goes home with him and guess who’s moved in. His dad Harry has decided to move in with Dan because his now ex-wife has changed the locks. This, my friends, is why you don’t give your parents the spare key.
Kelly and Wiki are basically the Rosencrantz and Guildenstern of the episode. I was loving them. I also agreed with Kelly when she was saying that the half day off is good, but they are spending while they are earning, therefore they are loosing money.
While they were in the pub they ran into Carla and Tony who made a joke about them going back to work, so Rosencrantz and Guildenstern would skitter away? So, does anyone else thing that the Connors don’t treat their staff with respect?
Know what I’m real happy about? Two episodes, no Rosie and John. Thanks for the break.
