Update for Tuesday, July 27. The Great Exhibition

File:Crystal Palace - Queen Victoria opens the Great Exhibition.jpg

Molly and Kevin are preparing to leave their hotel in Glasgow and Kevin is a little short with Molly as today just happens to be his anniversary with Sally (but which one?).

Meanwhile at the Websters, Rosie and Sally are having a good laugh at the idea of Kevin and Molly stuck in a hotel in Glasgow and how she must be driving him crazy. Crazy alright. Crazy in his pants!

Meanwhile, Sophie, who is really smart with computers and stuff, has discovered that by using her internet machine, she has deduced that Kevin and Molly won’t be home until the afternoon. If she just looked at the train’s website a little further she might have found out that the train wasn’t cancelled after all.

When they get back to the street, Tyrone is all over Molly like a puppy but she brushes him off.

At the Websters’, Sally gives Kevin an anniversary card, then asks for the hotel bill, as she wants to see if they can give a little compensation because of the cancelled train (which is the hotel’s responsibility ….how?) but Kevin brushes that off.

Later at the Dobbs’, Tyrone is talking about how he’s excited to have Molly back but she again brushes him off, saying he’s being pathetic.

At the Webster’s, Sophie is on the Glasgay website, which has the photos of all the runners except for two people who claimed they were there.  What will Kevin do? And will Sally call BritRail to get compensation for the non-cancelled train?

Ken is 70 Like I’m 29

Ken is 70 so he gets a book on the Great Exhibition (1951 was a banner year for the Victorian era) and he’s getting a cake in the Rovers later.  Liz asks Deirdre what it’s like being married to a 70 year old and they talk about age differences in romances and agree that it doesn’t matter how old you are, as long as you love each other.

And This Happened

Theresa is homeless and sleeping in Lloyd’s taxi and sponging pints off him. He can’t say no, I suppose, as they once had one night thing which was enough to convince Lloyd that Findlay was his son (he wasn’t).  Lloyd pleads with her to patch things up with Darryl. I’ll say this: Karen Henthorn, the woman who plays her, does rough really well. I mean, she’s an uncomfortable character to watch but everyone knows a Theresa Morton somewhere.

Tony and Maria are back from Paris. Maria notices the letter John Stape wrote. Kirk is still on the sofa.

Speaking of Tony, I saw the actor who plays him in a couple of things recently. One was a Doctor Who Christmas Special where he basically plays Tony Gordon in space:

He’s evil but he eventually helps the Doctor in preventing a spaceship designed to look like the Titanic from crashing into Buckingham Palace.

The other was in the movie “The Queen” where his entire dialogue was “Yes, ma’am.”

Turner’s Joinery

The producers have decided that there is both a nook and cranny that isn’t in use on the set so they have Peter buy the Turner’s Joinery prop under the viaduct. He tells Leanne it can be her big challenge. It will be a “flash bar” and it’ll be the place to be for Weatherfield’s elite. He’ll even help her run it. An alcoholic running  a bar? Where have I heard that before?

Anyway, here’s your new challenge Leanne. Try not to burn this one down.

    Oh cool, a hot new scene that will attract Weatherfield’s club crowd, like, uhmmmm…. oh say… Rosie and Minnie? I think it’s been done on the street, the Graffiti Club it were called.

    Not a good plan for our Peter. Either he ends up back on the booze or Leanne has some stupid git torch the place. 🙂

    • Beanie says:

      LOL S. Well said!!!

      • S. Poole says:

        Well, to be fair, it is now described by our *Pee-tah as an upscale wine bar, which will not fair any better IMHO, the one Liz worked in years ago did not survive either.

        *love the way Ken says it, esp. when angry at him!

        And by the way, Blanche was great tonight as usual, she says what everyone else is thinking, in a much more cutting and clever way!

    I know I say this a lot… but you guys rock! Your updates? What can I say… I laugh, I cry, it’s better than Cats.
    Thank you to the entire CorrieCanuck gang for your hard work. I really appreciate it.

    And this episode?… well it seems that Fiz and Maria are in a neck and neck race for the title of Stupidest Woman in Britain. One’s married to a cheating kidnapper, the other is sleeping with the man who murdered her husband.

    And Kevin? He makes Kirk look like the president of Mensa.

    • Tvor says:

      *snork* Fiz..Maria… Kevin and Kirk lol love it!

      I expect the compensation Sally was after would come from British Rail or whichever company cancelled their train, and you’d think there would be more than one company running trains out of Glasgow wouldn’t you? British Rail and Virgin at the very least.

  3. Bea says:

    Yes, an alcholic running a bar, right around the corner from the local pub, that makes a lot of sense. So I guess Simon will be put in the freezer with Amy while the adults are at work half the night.

  4. haili says:

    A flower shop might have worked better. Peter is turned on by women running flower shops and all the weddings, funerals, getting out of the doghouse bouquets might keep them in business.

    I can’t see why anyone would go to a poky little bar when there’s so much excitement at the Rovers, but I’m not young. Poor Simon.

    Sally is pretty slow to catch on to that affair. She must be slipping – or too obsessed with Stapes to notice.

  5. Gayle says:

    When Liz and Diedre were discussing having a relationship with someone who is younger/older – there was no mention of the young Morrocan (I’ve forgotten his name) that Diedre was married to and was tragically murdered. I remember she really loved him. I also seem to remember that Liz and Jim had dinner with them a couple of times so Liz would remember him as well.

    I completely agree with everyone’s comments concerning Peter and Leeanne’s business venture.

    As for Kevin and Molly I hate every scene they are in together. Kevin must have lots of money to throw around staying in a posh hotel. Won’t Sally see the credit card bill when it comes in?

    • Trudy says:

      Deidre’s husband was Samir. Was murdered just before he was going to donate a kidney to Tracey.

      I can’t wait for Kevin and Molly to be found out. Really feel sorry for Tyrone. Sally – not so much.

  6. missusmac says:

    Gayle, I am also wondering how Sally can NOT see what is happening. Between the hotel bills, cash slapped out for Molly’s necklace present, and the lack of money coming in for all those supposed breakdown calls Kevin is on — she has to see something’s up. Unless Molly is doing the books … But when would she have time with all the spin classes and yoga???

  7. Barbee says:

    I can hardly wait ’til the Molven hits the fan! I can’t stand the whole scenario, and both actors seem uncomfortable with it (Kevin obviously, Molly just OTT acting). However, there is nothing like a street catfight and I’m pretty sure this will be one to remember when Sally finds out. I’m only hoping that the writers don’t try something even more extreme with Kevin and then the actor leaves the show (think Martin).
    Sophie is pretty awesome, and I am sure she will be in a real moral dilemma regarding her dad & Molly when the pieces fall together.
    I haven’t seen this week’s eps yet, but I’m looking forward to the return of Maria and Tony – ’cause he’s gorgeous, and it’s always a thrill to see him turn psychopath in the blink of an eye.
    Rosie, Rosie – it’s almost like she’s in a panto! When she was standing beside her mother in the Rovers making faces at the Stape meeting, I was cringing. (all Vanna White indeed – very clever)
    The Windasses are so different from when we first met them – must be because the wicked uncle isn’t there to influence their easily led minds. Ches should stay there – his relationship with Fiz is becoming toxic.
    And you’re right – we all know a Theresa Morton, more’s the pity. Great acting, though.
