UK time Thursday December 25th
The show opens with Joe up in the middle of the night putting together Gail’s kitchen. I guess it will be a Christmas morning surprise. Later, as he runs the hoover David and Tina emerge downstairs talking about David’s birthday present. Gross. When Gail come down stairs she is surprised by the kitchen and the flash new watch Joe has bought for her. She looks as happy as ET did when he finally got to go home. I mean she looks EXACTLY as happy as ET did.
Tina is angry because she knows that he dad is short of money and is making stupid choices to impress Gail. She knows her dad, but he begs her to keep the day special.
Tony has found an excuse to skip out on Carla on Christmas day. Really he has to head to the factory to dispose of Jed’s body. As it turns out Jed is not dead and is alive, though somewhat worse for wear, in that bin in the factory. Here’s a lesson for Jed, if you know something bad enough about someone to blackmail them, you should probably think about what they would be willing to do to keep you quiet.
Anyway, when Tony gets to the factory he finds Jed alive and the two have a heart-to-heart. Tony makes Jed understand that while he isn’t a coldblooded killer she is not adverse to lethal force and he does have body-dumping grounds at his disposal.* Then he suggests strongly that Jed keep his trap shut and move into a lovely condo compliments of Tony.
Tony tells Jed to agree to the flat and then takes his keys to Emily’s house with the intention of getting all of Jed’s belongings, which, thankfully, fit into one bin bag. However, as Tony creeps down the stairs, in comes Wiki to prepare a traditional Polish Christmas dinner. She doesn’t catch him, but how will he get out now?
*I have to say that growing up watching American soaps I leaned that you can’t trust lower classes or minorities. But, Coronation St. has taught me that you can’t trust people wit messy hair or property developers.
