UK Time Friday April 25th 2008 – Episode II
Well Paul has certainly done it now. He actually did call the police to get his own back on Leanne. No, it didn’t make sense to me either. Paul actually, really and truly called the police to tell them about the arson. For real. He also told the police that two other people are involved. Well, Leanne is brickin’ it and Dan goes into police evasion mode.
Leanne is gob smacked, as am I. As is Glacia. As is our friend, Nandie, who never actually watched the show before.
Later, Paul runs into Leanne in the street and tells her that he has been interviewed by the police and sang like Jennifer Hudson at the Oscars. He also informed her that the police will be wanting a word with her and Bookie Son.
Now, by this point I did have about threee glasses of L’Ambiance but I totally missed Paul’s conversation with the coppers. So, I was still skeptical, but then he told Molly, Tyrone and Jack. At least I think he told them, because he started that conversation with a weird monologue about infatuation and I can’t hear that word without that Infatuation song by Rod Stewart playing in my head.
Anyway, after Paul drops the bomb, Jack tells Tyrone to take Molly to the pub. This made me laugh as Molly is driving the bus in that relationship. Once they leave Jack goes super nova. He tells Paul that he is glad that Vera didn’t live to see this. Actually, Glacia, Jack and I said it in unison. Paul says that at least he told the truth. Jack points out that he still burned down a building and he only told the truth to get one over on Leanne. In the end, Jack tells Paul that he is his father’s son. Ouch.
The whole situation drives Jack, Molly and Tyrone to the bottle. I, too, top up my L’Ambiance.
Well, its dinner time at the eyeball-botox flat. Carla made food of some sort. As it turns out she isn’t a great cook. Liam and Maria make it through the lasagna pie and Liam proceeds to get cronk. He was like Amy Winehouse up in that piece. Mind you, I could be projecting.
Anyway, Maria, fresh from a self esteem and relationship issues workshop left for the evening. Then the eyeball headed for Beijing. I wish Maria didn’t take that workshop, because Liam passed out on the botox couch. My bet is that he with either wake up looking “years younger” or in bed with his sister-in-law. As our friend Nandie said, “That girl had better come and collect her husband.”
Check Audrey out. She called Ted after some prodding by Maria and Rita. She doesn’t know how she is going to tell him that he fathered a 50 year-old ET living over the road. Still, Audrey decides to keep the story from her daughter and make a date with the old flame. I wonder what she is going to tell Bill. I believe that Audrey is what we would at one time call a bad mamma jamma!
Becky and Jason seem to be getting nice and cozy. I think they were talking about stuff, but Nandie and I basically yelled “tap that tap THAT!!!” at the TV for the duration of their scene. Becky has second thoughts as she’s been there before, and I don’t mean in a general sense. I mean specifically. She’s been to Grimshaw City and had to get he bus back to lonely town after.
Becky walks out the door and Jason is confused and a little sad. While I am amazed at Becky’s strength I am proud of her for leaving. It doesn’t mean that she will stop seeing Jason or that she hates him. In fact, it doesn’t mean that she will leave him for more than 30 seconds. Yes, she came back to Jason, yes please, Grinshaw. I can’t blame her.

Julie is still being charmed by Kirk. I wonder how long this will last.
Liz clearly does not love Vern. He continues to talk up the cruise. She continues to not want to go. I’m finding this a little painful because I really like Vern.
