UK Time Friday January 18th – Episode 2
Oh Vera, why did you have to leave us? That was the only thing I could think of during the entire episode. I didn’t really care that Ryan is still missing and Michelle is still crying. I wasn’t that interested in the knicker party at Janice’s flat. I wished to rush though David’s evening with his girlfriend. Carla’s nasty presence at the pub while Maria and Liam discussed wedding plans didn’t even bother me because all I could think about was Vera and Jack.
This episode was pretty much about Jack, Molly, Tyrone and Paul dealing with Vera dying painlessly in her sleep. Her heart gave out, we learned and she didn’t suffer. Eventually everyone in the street had to learn about her death. Most members of Weatherfield’s old guard, Rita, Emily, Dev and Roy, stood around the door of the Old Rectory to learn the news and to commiserate with Jack.
Tyrone went to get Paul and together with Molly and Jack, they began to mourn Vera. In the pub, the rest of the Street regulars have a drink in her honour or react to the news. There will be a funeral, and that, you can bet, will be very sad.
