Update: Thursday November 27, 2008 – A Dark Day



It the day after the wedding and Carla is lying on the sofa. In rough shape what looks like a long night of drinking red wine. She searches for her bag and has a couple of aspirins. She lies back down.

Carla makes it to the factory and is in the office with Rosie. She asks what all the whispering is all about with the girls.

Rosie tells her: “Oh they all think you’re in a foul mood cos Tony dumped you.”

Carla laughed: “I don’t need a reason to be in a foul mood with that lot and anyway, I dumped him.”

She tells Rosie that she appreciates her telling her all the info on the girls. She has officially appointed Rosie the spy at Underworld.


The newlyweds are in bed and Liam looks rough. Maria on the other hand is thrilled to be a new bride. She is up ready for breakfast in bed. Liam is not in the mood to eat.

She shrugs and smiles and says, “Looks like I’m eating for three then.”

Later, Barry and Helen say their goodbyes to Liam and Maria who were are ready to start their honeymoon in Venice. They tell them to have a wonderful honeymoon.

Mr. and Mrs. Connor set off for their honeymoon.

N&R Wine Bar?

Liz and Vernon have decided that the pub needs a new look. Vern suggests an, “ upwardly mobile feel?” Vernon has used his unknown talents as a sketch artist and has completed drawings. “I’m thinking… leather!” to which Liz says: “And that’s just for the staff!”

Liz and Steve are alone and she confesses: “I’m a bit worried about you and all these kids.” Steve cried: “Mum? Amy’s a little star!” She replied that it was the two big sons she was concerned about. He sighed: “Mum, when I met Michelle I knew she came with baggage. We all do. The thing is, I just didn’t realize quite how much.” That is for sure!

Rain in Africa

Roy has decided to go to Africa and visit Hayley. Now the decision has to be made who will look after the café. Becky’s reassurances that she could manage. Roy told her that running the cafe was too much for one person. Roy thinks that Ken will be the best person for the job.

Later in the Rovers, Roy asks Ken to take care of the café. Much to Blanche’s disgust.

ALEX (or the Never ending story)

Alex comes by the Rovers again, and interrupts Michelle at work. He wants to spend sometime with Michelle and they both go to talk in the back room.

In the back room, Michelle and Alex have a great time looking through her photo album. “This is your Granddad and Grandma’s wedding photo. Look at them top sixties outfits!” He asked if she had any of her with his dad. She replied: “Not really. We didn’t go in for photos much until Ry… until you and Ryan were born.” The door opens. It is Ryan, whoops.

Ryan starts to freak out: “Is this your idea or his?” Alex snarled in his face: “What is your problem?” Ryan grabbed him and yelled: “You, coming in here and trying to take over!”

Steve comes in and tries to (try) and control the situation. Alex gets up and heads for the door. She tells Alex: “Look Alex, I’m not pushing you away but we can’t carry on like this, none of us.” He went to go past her but she pleaded: “Come on. This should be a proper start for us, not the end of the world.”

    I got heartburn just watching Carla washing the aspirin down with that stale red wine.

    I don’t think I like Alex. He seems like another David – and we don’t need another!

    The girls have no reason to trust Rosie – so I hope they don’t.

    I’m so glad I wasn’t the only one who noticed that Loverboy Liam hadn’t shaved for the wedding. He is so conceited about his image, it made no sense.
    And even though the music played at their wedding has been explained (thanks, you guys)it was simply AWFUL. Like the minimum liturgy for idiots like me to become incensed…at least the wedding episode only took a week or two…:-(

    I agree totally with all of you!

    Gotta say, I did a doubletake when Steve whined a little about all Michelle’s baggage to his mom.

    Steve, baggage? Hmmm, Karen, Tracy, Amy, Liz, Vernon, Jim, Ken, Deirdre… yeah, hardly any baggage coming with Steve…

    I’m not Michelle’s biggest fan lately, but that struck me as a little unfair, and perhaps a foreshadow.

    It’s not so much Michelle’s baggage, it’s how she’s dealing with the Alex situation that is annoying me to no end. And I’m a little confused that Nick, after stalking Ryan for all those weeks, doesn’t seem to even give him a second glance when he sees him again. I know Ryan said he wanted nothing to do with him, but given Michelle and Alex’s comings and goings, you’d think that Nick would want to get to know Ryan a bit better.

    Nothing good can come of all of this. If I was Ryan, I would really be worried about Alex. Seems a bit of a psycho to me.

    I couldn’t blame Steve for complaining about Michelle’s baggage. All she’s done for weeks is whine, cry, lie and sneak around with Alex. At least he’s kept a sense of humour through all her problems but his patience must be wearing thin. She doesn’t seem to care much about Amy when she can’t even get the cake there on time for the birthday party.

    Ryan decided he didn’t want anything to do with Wendy and Nick and Nick finally went along with it. Alex seems a bit messed up to me too and doesn’t seem aware or care how his actions affect others.

    OMG, I’m so tired of this story line! When was the last time Michelle worked a full shift?. . .
