Update for Wednesday, Oct. 7: ‘Twas a Pub Crawl For Teddy


‘Twas the week before Christmas

For our friends on Corrie

And a fuzzy brown bear

Runs away with the story.

Simon’s dear little buddy

Went slammin’ some shooters

And picked up a drunk blonde

With big bouncy hooters.

In the morning, remorseful

Peter’s useless and rude

But Leanne, so resourceful

Finds the fluffy wee dude.

Peter takes it to Simon

At his grandpa and granny’s

There’s a teary reunion

Over coffee and sannies.

Det. Constable Oatcake

Is sorry to say

That they’ve checked Tony’s story

And have called it a day.

Maria cries out,

So a killer goes free

But Jed’s Stone’s taken notice

What’s up – guess we’ll see….

Merry Christmas from Warsaw

A bit of a damper

When Norris has won

A nice Polish food hamper

Emily, thus inspired

Invites over Wicki

Also Mary and Jed

Which might prove somewhat tricky.

After stuffing his face

For most of the season

Steve’s body’s revolted

in blubbery treason.

Lloyd’s not much better

All squooshy and slack

So they set up a challenge

To get their shape back.

Molly Compton decides

That the house is hers, too

So she’s moving back in,

Just to sleep, not to screw.

So an interesting Yuletide

For all on the Street

Polish feasts, drunken bookies

And Steve with no sweets.

    Excellent update!!!!!!!

    Two great updates and I loved the poem!

    How tedious it is to watch a grown man feel so sorry for himself that he gets drunk and makes everyone around him miserable. Ken’s guilt is making him very patient with Peter and it was a touching scene when they hugged. I hope things change, but somehow doubt it. Leanne was very understanding too and she said she was used to dealing with Les. I hope she doesn’t latch on to Peter since he’s so much like her father. It would all end in tears for her; though I guess that’s normal in a soap.

    I wonder where Leanne finally found that bear. He looked pretty clean and neat after a night of pub crawls. I thought Peter threw it into the Barlow back yard so maybe she bought a new one.

  3. Mrs. D says:

    This re-cap was better than the episode! Excellent job!

  4. fondue123 says:

    Wow, you have a flair for poetry, kunzie, that was great!
    Two things puzzled me/made me laugh out loud in last night’s episode:
    1. Usually they work pretty hard to hide an actor’s pregnancy, but what was up last night? When Leanne was in Barlow’s flat, helping him to remember where he drunkenly left the teddy bear? Leanne looked VERY pregnant, and no attempt was made to hide it behind a couch, or a really large coat. Her belly was just…there…straining the buttons of her sweater.
    2. i had to laugh when Leanne was speaking with the club owner, trying to track down Simon’s bear. “A teddy bear, yes. Brown. About 12 inches” Honestly, how many teddy bears does this club owner think might have been left in his/her pub that a detailed description is required????

  5. TracyEmm says:

    How on earth did you make it up? Brilliant!

    I wish I was as talented! 😉

  6. missusmac says:

    Kunzie, I am in absolute awe of your talent! Wonderful, funny poem.

    Wicki cooking Christmas dinner for Norris. What fun! He might not be looking forward to it, but I am.

    Peter might not want Simon, but I’ll take him. What a cutie!

  7. TracyEmm says:

    I hope we get to see Liz and Lloyd dancing at these classes she was going on about! Lloyd makes me laugh; he needs more storylines!

    and yes, Peter is a bit on the pathetic side. Hopefully this behaviour doesn’t last too long.

  8. haili says:

    I liked the interaction between Ken and Peter tonight and last night. Maybe Peter will have some idea why Ken wasn’t always there for him. Leanne was good with Peter tonight too.

    Jed and Maria are much too open in their pursuit of Tony but Tony should be staying well away from that henchman of his.

    • missusmac says:

      I agree! That was really amateur hour on Tony’s part. I can’t believe, now the spotlight is on, that he’d even be contacting his henchman, let alone continuing to meet him knowing Jed was right there.

      I’d really like to feel sorry for Maria, but she’s soooo mean right now.

      • Long time lurker says:

        I agree with the Tony part. For someone who masterminded the entire lead up to Liam’s murder and the murder itself, that meeting with his henchman was totally stupid (and out of character).

  9. haili says:

    I do feel sorry for Maria and don’t know how she’s being mean. None of her so-called friends will even listen to her and just dismiss everything she says. She knows something’s wrong but they don’t even consider it. Audrey should be ashamed, considering what she went through with Richard.

    It seemed out of character and an admission of guilt for Tony to give Jed money to keep quiet and he did the same with Maria. He should have more sense.

  10. Long time lurker says:

    What are those expressions – “poking the bear”; “waving the red flag in front of the bull”? I’m concerned that Jed may be playing a dangerous game with Tony. On the other hand, Jed may feel that he has nothing to lose in his quest to bring down Tony Gordon.

  11. missusmac says:

    I just meant that Maria’s friends are being kind, checking in and making sure she’s eating, has care, doing what most would do faced with this story– getting her medical care.

    This IS an over-the-top storyline, perhaps people would believe her, but she’s been distraught from the get-go, accusing people of keeping things from her, keeps screaming at them, calling them poor friends who don’t care about her if they don’t immediately believe her. (She marched into Underworld to break open a drawer, demanding Fizz help.)

    Her chasing the cop out of her house, accusing her of taking blackmail money to keep the investigation quiet, demonstrates how difficult it would be to be Maria’s friend right now…

  12. missusmac says:

    That said, most people realize Tony Gordon is s snake, and domineering. Richard Hillman was just seen as the good guy, so nobody believed Audrey.

    I admit it’s hard to understand why people wouldn’t even think Tony might have something to do with Liam’s death.

  13. haili says:

    I agree that Maria is way over the top and I suppose that explains why everyone condescends to her. On the other hand, a few people knew about Liam and Carla’s affair and she wonders what else they know. I thought Fizz would be more understanding after her experiences with John.

    It does seem crazy that Tony caused Liam’s death when he was right there with a perfect alibi and the method was far from perfect. What if Liam had lived?

    I wonder how long this mystery will go on. I think I heard that Tony is still on the show in England. Maybe they’re waiting for this coming Christmas to catch him.

  14. TracyEmm says:

    yes Tony is certainly being very careless at the moment, and Jed is playing with fire. But, perhaps, in due time, we will learn what all this is going to lead to. I suppose they needed to allow some kind of slip-up on Tony’s part in order to spice up the storyline and give Jed something a bit more concrete to go on… Perhaps Jed’s time is up – Tony The Serial Murderer???

    • TracyEmm says:

      following Friday’s episode:
      further to my comments above – I had a feeling Jed was really ticking Tony off – but I didn’t expect him to bump Jed off last night! and with his own bare hands! I thought we were going to be ‘led down the path’ of assumption that Tony would kill Jed. Wow! Corrie got right into action last night. Although, I was half expecting him to start knocking on that crate/table while the factory girls were sitting on it – wouldn’t that have been a great scene! ha ha!
      I can’t wait to see what happens next, when Norris and Emily get wind that Jed has disappeared – and inform Maria of the same! woo hoo!

      • beanie says:

        Like an old horror film, I was expecting Jed’s hand to come out from under the table top.at the end.

      • TracyEmm says:

        I know! I’m still not convinced he’s dead yet! I mean, how on earth will Tony get away with this one? But then again, Jed has to be dead, or Tony’ll get done for attempted murder… hmmm… time will tell I say, time will tell!

      • missusmac says:

        I expected Jed to rise up as well. How wonderfully gruesome it was when Julie put Jed’s Santa hat on Tony, mistakenly believing it was Tony’s!

        Could it be possible that “suck on these lemons, Grandpa” were the last words Jed heard?

      • Barbie says:

        I thought the whole party scene was hilarious. All I could think of was Jed-in-a-box and I wondered too if he would pop up out of there. Can’t wait till Monday to find out how Tony gets rid of the body.
        And I agree, Michelle inviting the Gordons for Christmas was just weird.

      • beanie says:

        LOL I was thinking Dead Jed in a bin.

      • kunzie says:

        Return of the Jed Die?

    • missusmac says:

      Oh, too funny!

      Now, where does one get rid of a body on Christmas Day? Hopefully Tony’s henchman Christmas Carol service is over and he’s free to dig a big hole…

  15. corrierules says:

    Did anyone not find it strange that on Tuesday, Michelle was furious at Carla for sleeping with Liam, desecrating the memory of Paul and and being an enemy of the Connors in general — but by Friday she was graciousy and warmly inviting Carla and Tony to an Xmas do?

    • missusmac says:

      Absolutely. Seems weird, however, if it continues the Tony killer saga, the Steve needs to dump Michelle NOW saga, I’m in!

      • Barbie says:

        Did you notice how pleased Michelle looked when JD or whatever his name is let on he had a crush on her? Looks to me that this might be easier for Steve than he thinks.

    • missusmac says:

      Barbie, yes I did notice. I think this is a great plot device that should please the audience. Michelle won’t be dumped and lonely — which should please the few folks who really like her — and Steve can carry on with Beckie without guilt.

      I cracked up seeing Beckie and Steve with the exact same “What the hell??” expressions on their face as Emily recited Twas the Night Before Christmas…

  16. haili says:

    Yes, I noticed that too and it did seem strange. Steve never seems to have anything to do with Tony and Carla and nothing at all in common with them. Maybe Michelle was drunk and in that too friendly mode. She may regret it when the time comes – or forget she asked them, which would be kind of funny.

  17. CAPT PAT says:

    I think the background music was very appropriate as Tony G hauled Jed’s body accross the factory floor”you better be good, you better not pout, Santa Claus is coming to town”

  18. Bea says:

    That made me laugh.
