The show opens with the Maria and Liam saga. Maria is playing keepsies with Rosie’s phone. * At the Websters, Rosie is demanding that her mother go and collect it. Kevin steps in and Rosie leaves for work, but not before threatening her mother with a note in her permanent file.
Over the road, Maria is obsessing over Liam and Carla while Michelle, always the picture of sober thought where her brothers are concerned, tries to reassure her that Liam would never stray. Kevin comes in and after some fast hands, Michelle manages to snatch the phone from Maria and give it to Kevin. Kevin promises to see that the video is erased one he gets home.
Later Tom swings by for his turn in the hot seat. He denies knowing anything but does say that he once suspected something.
I am not clear on something here. Does Michelle think that Liam and Carla were “at it” and is just trying to get Maria not to worry about it since Liam is dead and no Connor’s “good” name can be stained after the inevitable car accident that kills them? Or, does she think Maria is wrong?
Maria, continuing her investigative rampage, confronts Leanne in the bookies. I have no idea why Maria thought she could get an honest answer out of Leanne. Hello, Leanne was Carla’s maid of honour and an accomplished liar. Peter soon puts an end to the interrogation, which Leanne is thankful for.
Maria “Super-sleuth” Sutherland-Connor decides to ambush Rosie outside the factory at dinnertime where she learns that Tony knew all about the little video on Rosie’s phone. This bows Maria’s mind. What could it all mean?
*To the best of recollection Rosie’s phone was tossed into the drink after she tried to seduce Tony. They must have really advanced telecommunications packages in the UK because when I get a new phone NOTHING from the previous phone is on it.
The Plats new kitchen has gone in and Tina’s dad has sourced some of the posh stuff for the counter tops. This annoys Tina to no end as she feels that Gail and David and taking advantage of him. Seems like Tina knows her dad pretty well.
In the back yard a little later Joe tries to smooth things over with Tina and assures her that things are ok this time and that he is fine. Sure he is.
Becky is in a fowl mood and I am loving it. She is all attitude all day long. The source of her sour is Steve and his “plan” to be a bad boyfriend. It is essentially the romantic version of constructive dismissal. However, later when Liz tells Becky what a prat Steve is being, it is clear that he is actually putting his plan into action.
