Update for Wednesday, Nov. 4: Knowing Me, Knowing You

Sheesh, peeps. I’m only a few years in with the gang on the Street…I started watching when Steve and Karen were in the throes of breaking up. Karen’s nose was running alot, I don’t remember much else….so can one of you long-timers please fill me in…has Steve always made such a cock-up of things??

As disgusted as JD seemed by Steve’s offer of Michelle on toast, he seems to have mulled it over. The next day, at band practice, JD tries to talk to Michelle, asking her how bad things are with Steve. Michelle, who is going for a new “look” has stolen a purple caftan out of Fiz’s closet.

JD tries for a snog, and Michelle politely puts him off, saying that she’s with Steve, and Steve is awesome and things are awesome. JD responds by explaining that Steve is an oily, spineless snake who tried to pawn her off like a Swiffer with a broken squirter.

Michelle begs JD to tell her he’s joking, but he isn’t. She runs home to the pub and in the back room, tearfully and angrily confronts Steve and suggests he try the truth for the first time in his whole life. Steve admits he does want to finish, but rolls out the rest of his game by saying, “it ain’t no one’s fault, just the way life is. I like you but I don’t love you.” No sooner has he dropped the bomb when he scurries off to the Cafe. Becky is on smoke break and Steve tells her he’s mid-breakup. Becky doesn’t want any part of him; she doesn’t trust him as far as she can throw him and tells him it’s too late, sod off.

Steve returns for more breaking-up. Michelle is all vulnerable and sad, asking if there’s positively no chance. She asks if there is anyone else, and Steve replies “Nooooooo, of course not.”

Stevie Mac! Look what I found on Craigslist for ya!

Back Door Man

Lloyd pops in the back door of the Rovers and gets all hot’n’bothered over Liz in her Maude cardigan, which she stole from me, and I am pissed because I wear it over my baggy black awards-ceremony dress. Liz escorts her love-machine upstairs for a quickie.

Later, Steve comes up to talk over the nuclear waste of his love-life, and catches Liz in her slinky peignoir set. His nickel drops pretty quick, and he bellows for Lloyd to come out of the bedroom. The boys resume their argy-bargy, it gets a little shovey and Liz tells them to knock it off. As Lloyd storms out, he sees Michelle in the dining room in tears. “He’s not worth tears, Michelle,” he tells her, “he’s a lying, cheating….” Cheating??? Cheating??? MIchelle, along with Liz and Steve, follow Lloyd as he goes to exit the bar and he lets fly, telling Michelle that on he big “night” Michelle mounted the inquisition over, Steve was with Becky, and has been ever since.

This Flight Tonight

Molly and Tyrone enjoy their first brekky as husband and wife. They open their gifts, laughing and reminiscing. Eventually, as their departure time nears, they begin casually. and then frantically, looking for their tickets, as Pam helps. Rocket science is not needed to figure out that Jackie has stolen them. Super-sad.

I Will Get By

Jason overhears Joe McIntyre on the phone, hanging up on a pesky creditor. He mentions this later to Bill, saying something is fishy. Bill says that Joe shows up on time and works hard. I think Jason needs to give Joe a bit of a break here…we can’t all live with our mum forever. Joe’s day gets worse before it gets better…Tina tracks him down to where he has shacked up at U-Store-It.

See people???? Do not lie!!! It gets you nowhere!

In Other News

As Michelle and Steve’s relationship unravels, Blanche’s supply of blackmail booze at the Rovers runs dry.

Jason pops into the Cafe for pie and chips, and to tell Becky that he has been to see about a divorce, and is now free as a bird. Becky is not as impressed as Jason had hoped.

    Couldn’t help thinking Joe might want to move that magazine he threw on top of the metal heater…

    WHY would Jpe not tell Gail, and move in with her? The kitchen came from him, so arguably 1/6 th of her house belongs to him!

    Swiffer that has lost its squirt! LOVE it.

    Yes, Steve has always made a cockup of things. For one thing, he likes these wild edgy girls like Karen and Becky. He will always lie to make life easier for himself, but ends up making it worse. His first marriage was because his wife-to-be, Vickie, inherited some money and he had ambitions – even though he was really in love with the hairdresser. He dithered between those two and the hairdresser (whose name always escapes me) was brokenhearted. Then, when he has an argument with his current mate, he ends up in bed with an other woman for one-night stands that always come back to haunt him – like Tracy at his wedding to Karen. I think he’s ended up in bed with Maxine, Becky, Tracy, Kelly – and there may be others I’ve forgotten.

    Anyway, it will be a blessing if Michelle moves out of the pub and gives us all a break.

    I think there must be more to Joe than meets the eye. He seems to have lots of problems.

    The hairdresser was the lovely Fiona, Jimmy Mac was in love with her too.

  4. I missed last Thursday night’s episode so I thought I would catch that episode online. Well what do you know….now they have gone and added commercials to the online episodes. I decided not to watch it afterall.

  5. corrierules says:

    Yup, Steve likes the crazy ones. haili summed it up very well.

    Poor Michelle, now she has to find a job where she actually works and a home where she actually has to pay rent. But Stevie-boy, you did not handle this well. At all.

    Lloyd and Liz… very good chemistry. And talk about your double-standard. Lloyd is what, 6 years younger than Liz? and yet it’s considered a scandalous relationship. It’s all wink, wink, nudge, nudge, say no more… Yet no one blinks an eye at Tara and Dev. He must be at least 15 years older than she is! Even without the whole I-slept-with-your-mother angle, you’d think someone would call him out on the age difference. But he’s rich, he’s a guy… so it’s OK.

  6. kunzie says:

    Thank you for saying that, Corrierules! Liz and Lloyd are not so very far apart in age. They are both single, and as Lloyd tells it, he’s gotten to a point where he appreciates a little maturity. It does work.
    Yes, the double standard is alive and well 😉

  7. Trixie says:

    What about Steve and Becky? How old is she? It looks like there is a bigger age difference between them, than between Lloyd and Liz.

  8. kunzie says:

    Wickipedia (spoilers!) lists Becky’s birthday as 1980 and Steve’s as 1974. Also 6 years difference!

  9. Gayle says:

    Personally, I like Lloyd and Liz together – who are they hurting – no one. As for Steve he is hurting Michelle, Ryan and Amy(wherever she is). Michelle does seem to look after her a lot more than Steve does.

  10. TracyEmm says:

    Well the end of last night’s episode was great, can’t wait for tonight! I am glad Michelle has finally found out – this secret has dragged on for waaaay too long.
    My next hope is that Tyrone and Molly are smart enough to go to the train station and catch his mother in action. It just doesn’t seem right that this trip will slip thru their fingers!
