Update for Tuesday, Nov 3: Wanna Borrow My…Uh….


As the NFL enters week 9, quite a feisty game is underway on Corrie, with plays both offensive and defensive.

The Fourth Quarter

Molly and Tyrone’s wedding winds down…

As the happy couple sign their register and the Korean harpist plays, Tyrone thinks about explaining the cop situation to Molly. Before Tyrone can say much, Molly is whisked away for photos. Pam takes Tyrone aside and they exchange some heated hissing about the incident. Some time later, Pam is discussing it with Kirk. Kirk fills her in that some palm-greasing was done to spring Tyrone.

Molly and Tyrone emerge from the church in a flurry of white petals and applause. While Molly socializes with the guests, Pam chats with Tyrone…she has put two and two together; the “cop” in the bar wasn’t – it was Whispering Jeff. Despite being scammed, Tyrone is intensely relieved that he is not really arrested. Now he can enjoy his wedding day for real.

The Tailgate Party

The reception gets underway at the Rovers. Diggory, despite his absence has contributed a beautiful cake. Pam, Jack and Tyrone still do a little under-the-breath sniping at one another about the near-miss. Kirk uses the last-call bell to call the room to order and Jack delivers a lovely speech to the newlyweds. Among the guests, in a brown wig, or a hair re-think, is Jackie Dobbs, hearing much but saying little initially.

Kevin rings the bell for Tyrone, who delivers a cute speech, reliant on  his cue-cards. He thanks Jack warmly, also Pam, and their friends. He says he didn’t do too well family-wise, so is thankful for his great friends.

Kevin then presents the happy couple with two tickets to Paris, and they are thrilled. Jackie, who has overheard Tyrone’s comments, is less than thrilled. It isn’t long before Tyrone and Molly spot her. She says after 18 hours of agonizing labour, she’s offended at the family put-down. Molly decides reluctantly it’s okay for Jackie to stay. Jackie has come to learn about Tyrone’s near-arrest, I assume by eavesdropping.

Out back of the Rovers, Fiz is in tears. Julie finds her, and Fiz confesses she has been receiving letters from John and is undone by them. Julie is wonderful and comforts her.

Jackie is socializing but sees Liz needs help and offers to help her take dishes into the kitchen. Once she is in back of the Rovers’ with the gift table, she wastes no time finding and stealing the tickets to Paris. She is almost caught by Liz and then by Pam.

Later, the guests troop outside to see Tyrone and Molly off. As they applaud and watch the “just married” car bearing Tyrone and Molly half a block to their house, Jackie disappears down a back alley with the tickets.

The Handoff



Steve sells Michelle to Humble Pie for a case of Heineken

In a predictable turn of the game that I didn’t see coming…JD has come into the Rovers to see if Michelle would like to do a great-paying gig in York, that has raspberry vodka on the rider. Steve overhears and encourages Michelle to “pursue her dream”.

Later, Steve brings JD a beer out back. He unrolls his story to JD – the fact that he and Michelle are on their last legs, and going to Ireland was a last-ditch attempt to save their relationship. JD is confused because he can see Michelle is happy…he knows her inside-out. Steve hints that JD is more suited to Michelle than he is. He also intimates that he and Michelle don’t get it on. The look on JD’s face is as if he’s discovered something green and fuzzy in the fridge. Steve goes on to say they’ve simply run out of steam. JD accuses him of attempting to pimp his girlfriend. No, says Steve, it would be better for all of them if he and Michelle split. He leaves JD turning over this information in his mind.

Later, as Michelle, Steve and JD join the well-wishers bidding Tyrone and Molly farewell, Michelle shivers in the cold; JD takes off his jacket and gives it to her. Steve says JD is a gentleman; JD looks uncomfortably at Steve.

The Field Goal

Peter emerges from his bedroom, buttoning up his shirt. He and Leanne have finally scored three points and enjoy some cuddling on the couch. He says he never expected ‘this’ when he came back to Weatherfield. That evening, Simon and Peter nip into the shop and Peter buys a bottle. The secret drinking continues.

Home Field Loss

David Platt comes home, chatting to Tina about the horse-drawn carriage…he is quickly turned icy by the sight of Gary Windass drinking tea in his kitchen. David is rude and Gary shifts in short order. David is super-cheesed off for Tina’s lack of loyalty, but Tina says she’s had enough of falling out with everyone, and David’s not to tell her who she can and can’t talk to. He says no, her brewing up for the enemy is a first.

In other news…

Tara tells Dev she has decided to stay in Weatherfield. He is overjoyed and plants one on her.

Blanche is bitching to anyone who will listen that she was insulted that her best slacks were referred to as ski pants.

    What was that ginormous bow on Molly’s jacket? She looked like she was gift wrapped.
    Also, I thought that Tina was way smarter than that. Uck, what do girls see in those bad boys?
    Also, Steve is getting more and more disgusting. I mean, I love him as a character, but, he so reminds me of my x.

  2. I thought Tyrone’s mum looked at the tickets but put them back and then stole an envelope with money in it?

    • lovethestreet says:

      No, I’m pretty sure she took the tickets then put the empty envelope back. I must be naive, but — even after everything she has done — I was still surprised Jackie would stoop so low.

  3. Gayle says:

    I am becoming very disappointed in Steve lately – he is acting like a spineless jerk why doesn’t he just tell Michelle the truth? I am not a fan of hers but don’t like to see anyone being cheated on.

    I didn’t get the ugly jacket Molly was wearing – her dress was lovely but not the jacket.

    I also think Fizz is looking very pretty these days – I wish she could find happiness she is one of my favourite characters.

  4. TracyEmm says:

    Molly had major boobs popping out of that dress! I did like it, but not sure I would have worn it for my wedding day…

    I thought Steve’s facial expression was hilarious when J.D. put his coat around Michelle’s shoulders! I agree that Steve is a coward, but he’s always been a bit of a duck-n-diver!

    I was actually annoyed that Jackie took the tickets, annoyed that yet another thing had to go wrong at the wedding. I wish the writers didn’t include that part. It’s so low, and quite frankly, I’ve had enough of this wedding’s screw-ups!

    Dev’s creeping me out lately…

  5. haili says:

    I thought the bow was ugly too – and too much of Molly was coming out of the dress – though I guess that’s the style these days.

    At least the reception was better than the wedding and the speeches were good. Jackie looked better in her pink hair; the dark hair really aged her.

    Dev’s been creepy for quite awhile now and I wish he’d act more like the old Dev.

    • Bea says:

      I agree. The pink hair was better. Just crazy enough for Jackie, and it looked good. I’ve always wanted green to match my eyes, but too chicken.;o(

    Molly almost broke up with Tyrone over his “dodgy dealings” with Auntie Pam. And yet… she was thrilled with the things that those dodgy dealings bought her — the carriage, the gown, the Korean harpist — on her wedding day. Somewhat hypocritical if you ask me…

    As for Molly’s gown, there seems to be a trend in wedding gowns today to be “sexy”… which I find a bit offensive , especially if you are having a religious ceremony. Save the sexy for the reception.

  7. Barbie says:

    Molly’s jacket threw me for a loop too but it kind of grew on me. It was way over the top, but if you can’t wear something way over the top for your wedding when can you? It reminded me of Aretha’s hat at the Obama ceremony.

  8. missusmac says:

    Barbie, I’m with you. I mean — what do you wear over your wedding dress in mid-January? It can’t be a regular coat, and it still must be warm.

    Ty’s mom put the envelope back, without the tickets — a gold envelope missing would be noticed right away. This way, no one will notice til she’s long gone.

    Too right, how DID Molly think Ty paid for all this stuff?

    I was a bit eewwwwwwwed out too by Steve’s hand-off pass to JD. Don’t care for Michelle either, but this is wrong!

    Loved Peter’s “inconspicous” thrusting of the booze into his jacket. No, Blanche won’t spot that…

  9. corrierules says:

    Molly’s jacket — I liked it. The problem is that she’s too short and petite for such an overwhelming, over the top article of clothing.

  10. haili says:

    Maybe a nice white fake fur jacket would have been better. I think she was too tiny for that huge bow. I also think wedding gowns should be elegant and not have everything hanging out. The more covered up ones can be sexy too if they’re fitted properly.
