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.”
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.
