UK Time – August 10th 2009 – Episode II
The show opens with Tony in Maria’s house and the audience suffocating under the love that dare not be spoken. Maria admits that living in Ireland may be a bit crazy (also, considering how their children turned out, do you really want the Connor parents exacting their influence over her baby). Tony takes the news like a champ and once Michelle arrives and starts crying, he decides to leave. Maria gazes as he walks out the door, outside, Tony looks dead sexy dejected.
A bit later on Maria and Michelle are talking and Michelle makes a plan that when Maria moves to Ireland, Michelle and Ryan will move into the house. Maria doesn’t look so sure. In fact, she looks miles away, but since Michelle is talking about herself, she doesn’t notice. Maria gets up off the couch and asks Michelle to watch Liam for a little bit while she runs some errands.
In the pup, Audrey and Tony chat about Maria’s tentative plan to move to Ireland while about six inches away Fiz and Maria talk about the fact that Maria loves Tony. Fiz urges Maria to tell him how she feels. You see, Fiz knows that it makes no sense to deny your feelings. Just like she couldn’t deny her feelings for John. If Fiz can admit to loving jail-bait abducting jail-bird John, Maria can admit to loving murderous control freak with a taste for anything Conner Tony.
Emboldened by Fiz’s encouragement, it looks like Maria will take action. While at home alone with the baby, Tony pops by and Maria decides that the best way to let Tony know how she feels is to ask him to be Liam’s Godfather. Tony’s reaction isn’t good as he doesn’t want to be relegated to cash greeting cards. Finally he tells her that he doesn’t want her to leave Weatherfield. Maria says, “you only had to ask!” and they kiss! This is just like my real life.
It seems the only person who seems to have any sense in the Plat story line is Tina. There was some altercation in the kitchen where Tina makes David know that he is no good scum and David pretends to be all offended that Tina thinks he had anything to do with Joe’s problems. Tina keeps everything she knows from Gail. Gail blinks moronically.
Our poor Graham is now worried that he will get sent down again for getting Joe the drugs. David assures him that nothing can go wrong. Graham tells David that he is starting a life and is enjoying it and is happy. He suggests that David try the same.
Meanwhile Tina and Joe talk about David’s involvement with the drugs and Joe insists that he doesn’t want Gail to know anything. Undaunted, Tina makes a bee-line for Graham and gets part of the story out of him.
A bit later, back at Gail’s, Tina confronts David and tells him that she knows how he is responsible for Joe’s condition. She threatens David and leaves making it clear that he makes her sick.
