John and Rosie are still reenacting the movie ‘Misery’ as Rosie tries to make good her escape. She makes it as far as the door when she discovers the cockadoodie thing is locked! From the inside! John drags her back upstairs with great effort, leaving her in the attic for the next week. She is so inconsolable that it hasn’t occurred to her that she could try to break the door down while he was out.
John goes to a pub where he disposes of Rosie’s wallet and takes her bank and card and PIN with him.
When he gets to Fizz’s he explains he was running late. Fizz notices the tear in his shirt and John says he got it repairing a car, even though Fizz remembered that he didn’t know owt about cars. She jokingly wonders what other secrets he has. THAT’S CALLED FORESHADOWING KIDS!
Funeral and Wedding Misery
Maria is still too distraught to go to see Liam at the wake, even at her in-laws’ urging. Michelle went, though, and she’s said she half expected him to jump up out of the coffin and say “Ha! Gotcha!”
Carla thinks it was for the best that she didn’t go and quietly thanks Leanne for taking her out of telling everyone about her and Liam.
When Carla gets back to her place, Tony is there with the Vicar, discussing the wedding. Carla then tells them that, because of what she’s been through, there will be no wedding.
Deirdre’s not too fussed since she found out the only reason she’s getting a free trip to France is that she’ll be expected to wash the behinds of all her mum’s friends. Ken suggests she take her Marigolds.
Blanche’s friend keeps calling her “Daphne” but Blanche corrects her, saying her features are too coarse for a Daphne.
When they get back, Ken gets a call from Peter, who tells them that Lucy has died. (for a quick history of Peter and Lucy, go here) Ken asks how Simon is handling it when suddenly Peter hangs up. Not sure what is happening here, given that Lucy promised Peter that he’d never see his son again. Maybe they got back in touch after all.
In Other News
Molly tells Tyrone and Pam about the call she got about the dress fitting for the wedding dress she thought she’d never afford. Ty and Pam try to convince her that she should get the dress anyway but she counters that, like Colin Farrell, the dress is out of her league. Molly’s a pretty girl and any guy would be lucky to have her so no insult intended to her when I say that, given Colin Farrell’s sexual history, I don’t think he’s that fussy.
Anyway, Ty convinces Molly to go for the dress.
Tara and Dev go back to his new flat for sexytime but it turns out Darryl has been making sexytime with his daughter. Dev goes into a rage and throws Darryl out while Amber protests that they are a proper couple. Tara tries to calm him down but he ends up insulting her so she leaves. Darryl moans to his mum that Dev will probably forbid Amber from seeing him and instead will set her up with a nice businessman. With a suit and all.
