Are We Done Yet?
Get Me Ice Cream Dammit!
Violet is furious, absolutely FURIOUS that everyone in the hood is acknowledging that Sean is the father of her child.
And just as I’m ready to start throwing my plate of hummus and glass of flaming zambucca at the television, something odd happens – I end up siding with her.
Violet is at home alone when Sean shows up unannounced with a ‘surprise’. What’s the surprise? A cleaner! Yep, a professional cleaner to make the apartment in shape for the baby.
Now, as much as I’ve despised Violet’s treatment of Sean – if someone even suggested *midly* that my house needed a proper clean – well, let’s just say there’d be a cleaning…but not of the house. Sean really lost me on that and I was 100% behind Violet on this point.
Instead of kicking Sean and Mr. Clean out of the flat, Violet flees to the streetcars to tell Jaime what’s happening. Lloyd seems to have a death wish because he keeps ‘poking the bear’ as it were by commenting on women, hormones, clean houses, etc. Violet ends it all with a industrial size tub of Ben and Jerry’s.
Is It Over Yet?
Alex is setting himself in nicely at the Rovers – which Michelle is defending to the hilt despite Vern’s mumblings. She bends over backwards to buy him gluten-free, vegan, organic, nut free, sugar free Dust Flakes and getting Steve to give him a few bucks and lifts to the school. Ryan – oh whatever – you’ve got your allowance and your bus fare.
In a refreshing move, Carla is the voice of reason when she tells Michelle that Ryan is welcomed to hang at her flat if he wants. Michelle can’t figure out this offer until Carla says that maaaaaaaaaaaaaaybe Ryan is feeling a bit alienated by Alex.
There’s some gossipy gossip on the street with Dev being a bit smirky about Michelle’s ‘son’ and Ken, Rita and Lloyd inquiring about the status of Michelle’s two sons. She tells them to butt out.
The only thing that’s interesting about this story is Alex’s ‘British Invasion’ haircut.
A Stroppy Mare
David and Tina are in the café talking about David’s tannorexia – whereby he’s looking a wee bit orange. When Ken actually speaks to them, Tina snaps, ‘Hello, private conversation here.’.
Then WHOOSH down swoops Becky upon Tina like an avenging angel telling her that she’s not to speak to Ken like that. When Tina complains, David…clearly remembering Becky’s earlier threats, tells Tina to just let it go. Tina looks like she is wondering if David tanned off a few items from his nether regions.
Tina then explains how her mom and stepdad have buggered off for a mini-break and that she hates being at the house by herself because that means she has to cook and clean for herself. David then offers her a place at Hotel Platt.
And From the ‘Where The Hell Did That Come From’ File….
Tony comes to visit Carla at the factory ‘strictly on business’ and asks to see a fabric sample for the next order. When Carla goes to get it….he …..goooooooes into her purse and takes keys.
Then, he breaks into her flat and starts caressing knives.
Where was there any freakin’ hint that Tony was a psycho? He was just merely Scottish up to this point. I know they have to build new stories…but seriously, can we at least get some lead up to that?
Anyway, yadayadayada – he’s playing with knives and the last scene is Carla arriving at home to see the door ajar.
