UK Time Friday March 21st 2008 – Episode II
The weird looking detective took David in for questioning. David is pretty determined to never take responsibility for his actions. The detective does a good job of listing all the messed up things David has done in the past year or so. Just to recap: constantly skipping school, sent the Richard Hillman cards, tried to sabotage his sister’s wedding, lied in court during Tracy Barlow’s trial, hid drugs in Bethany’s toys which she later over dosed on, drove his car into a canal, was generally a nasty piece of work.
During the interview the detective also makes it clear that if he asks Tina to lie for him the consequences for her are very serious. However, since the mind of a 17 year old is totally capable to outsmarting a trained detective David sticks to his story. After he is released, David stops by the hospital and confronts Audrey and Bill. David lies trying to make everyone think that the police don’t suspect him at all. Bill is still the only person who holds David in an accurate estimation. Gail, of course, is an idiot. You see, since David has been visiting her at the hospital, she has totally forgotten what a dangerous little psycho she raised.
In the mean time the police have made it over to the house to talk to Tina. When David calls her it is clear that she is telling him that the police are there. David gets immediately nervous and Gail is totally oblivious to the tension in the room. It must be the medication.
Once David gets home Tina confirms that she lied to the police for him. That is the first stupid thing Tina has done. It is like being in Gail’s presence is making her brain softy. So, now the brains of two 17 year olds will try to outsmart trained detectives. Also, who cares in Jason gets blamed for pushing Gail down the stairs. I understand that wouldn’t matter to David, but I am surprised that Tina hasn’t thought about that.
But what is going to happen when Gail gets her memory back. Will Gail lie to protect David or will she admit that David pushed her down the stairs?
Everything else that happened yesterday was basically window dressing for David’s story. But, I’ll give you a run down here.
Dad Mason happened upon Kelly Crabtree sitting at Roy’s all on her own. He took her to the Rovers where they happened on Son Mason and Leanne. They all share a drink together although, Kelly isn’t all that keen to share company with Leanne. They sit and talk for a while. I may have missed something, but Leanne up and vanishes for some reason and Son Mason goes running after her. I don’t know about the rest of you Canucksters, but I’ve sensed more chemistry between Jamie and his mom. Anyway, he asked her out for dinner and she agreed. Did anyone else notice what was going on with Leanne’s shoes/tights? I watched this episode with Glacia who, with the magic of PVR paused on the glory that was her outfit. She really did look like she was Mrs. Tumnis in the Lion the Witch and the Wardrobe.
Fiz found Chezney and they were reunited on some woman’s settee. Chezney wants to go home and begs Fiz not to blame Kirk for what happened. I don’t blame Kirk and while I never have anything bad to say about Fiz, I will say this. I blame her. When Cilla moved out, she should have moved in. She may be young, but Kirk has about three brain cells and Chezney is 9 and wants to eat candy all day.
Roy is getting a new roommate. He asked Becky to move in and she really had a great time with that. So did those of us watching.
Vernon is going to ask his band mates to build the smoker’s shelter in the back. My question is what are they gonna do with all the buses that arrive once the punters light up?
