Okay, yes, I can’t even be arsed to post Flaming Nora’s updates. That’s how bad it is.
But last night’s episode has inspired me….even more than the ‘Karma Bites Liz in the Ass’ scene with her standing there in her torn dress and neon pink cowboy had last week.
Let me just ask the Corrie gods…wtf?!
My first wtf is with Harry. After being bested by both the wife and the bit on the side, Harry has decided to leave town.
Just like that. Goodbye I’m going.
It better be that the actor had other roles to play, because if the writers decided that they couldn’t do something with a handsome middle age man with some coin in his pocket and a cheeky word for the ladies…well, they better just hand the writing pencil over to me because they’re clearly using it for evil, not good.
My second WTF was *kind* of expected, but still a bit disturbing. Last week Tony asked Carla to go with him to some big shindig, which she declined – so he promptly told Rosie to go get a glad rag because she was the second up to bat.
After buying a lovely, but barely there dress – Rosie is humiliated in front of everyone at the Rovers when Tony tells her that he’s taking Carla (who’s changed her mind) instead.
The next day saw a sullen Rosie at work – so Carla suggests to Tony that her take her out for a fancy lunch…you know, some place all Michelin and all. Tony takes the advice and hauls Miss Rosie out for a bit of wine and dine.
Now, as far as I can gather, Tony is complimenting Rosie in order to manipulate her into doing her evil bidding. I really don’t get a sense that there’s anything sexual behind.
I don’t, but apparently Rosie does.
While they’re at the restaurant, Rosie somehow manages to snag a hotel room and as she leaves the restaurant, she drops the key in Tony’s lap. He goes up to the room and the last we see of the two is her naked back holding a glass of wine, and him saying, ‘Rrrow-see.’.
Even though he went up, I still get a sense that he’s not interested, thus leaving the door open for Rosie to have an entirely cringe worthy episode to remember FOR THE REST OF HER LIFE.
Oh, and, Michelle’s back.
