The Home for Wayward Boys
Gail’s at Juvvie Hall again, visiting David. She wants to know how David is and he cracks a few jokes but eventually tells her he’s sorry for what he’s done. When they part, David breaks down crying.
Later, Gail returns home to an empty house and throws down the crutches and dances a jig around the living room looks sad.
Later in the Rovers, Bill, Audrey and Rita are having drinks as Bill goes to get a round. As he does, he suddenly remembers that some guy named Ted Page called, looking for Audrey. She claims not to have heard of him. When Bill is out of earshot (1 meter, in Corrie distance), Rita asks what’s up, as it’s clear that Audrey knows who this Ted bloke is.
Audrey says it’s someone she knew, briefly, 50 years ago. Hey, who just had her 50th birthday? Turns out Ted is Gail’s dad but, while Gail knows who her father is, even if he’s been absent from her life since before she was born, Ted does not know Gail is his daughter.
Paul got a job working as a the fry guy at a hotel restaurant, not quite the head chef position he was angling for. Tyrone takes the piss out of him and he sulks some more, but tells Jack that he’ll soon be able to pay back the money he stole. Jack says they had a rocky start but now Paul’s more than made up for it.
Meanwhile, Roger tells Leanne there isn’t much that can be salvaged out of Leandro’s. She meets up with Paul, who sulks, then lies and tells her that he got a head chef job. Leanne lies and says her idea for a wine bar is full steam ahead. Then they bitch at each other about insurance money and him doing her dirty work but it appears this episode is behind them.

Chesney is at Dev’s, buying candies for Kirk, who is due home from Cyprus today. Dev thinks if he were a candy, he would be a chocolate eclair because he’s hard on the outside, but soft inside. Amber thinks he’s a marshmallow, all fluffy with no substance. He later asks Betty what she thinks he is.
“Fruit and Nut,” she replies. (not sure if that scene made it to the CBC cut -it was in my Coles Notes for the episode).
Anyway, coincidently, Fizz made the error of trusting Maria to do something new to her hair and had it straightened. Everyone in the shop thought that a) it was to do with Kirk coming home and b) it looked awful – so for both reasons, she went to change it back.
Bill plays Cupid to Becky and Jason, who hides in his zip-up hoodie like an 11 year old. They go for a pint together in their best clothes. It’s all very awkward but both say they’re not looking for a relationship. Well, that settles that then.
Tony is off to Beijing on business and later admits to Jason that he wishes it was Roy, and not the bats, that he smoked out. Gee, Tony, Roy didn’t get under your skin, did he?
