The baptism is on hold, as we all wait for Liam’s godfather to get to the church. Little do they know that Carla has returned and is threatening to go public with what she knows about Liam’s murder.
In the church, Kirk tells the story of his own baptism and how he was dropped on his head.
“Can you believe that?” he asks.
Maria believes it’s Rosie’s fault that Tony is late. Fizz agrees.
“A fool and her money…”
Tony arrives looking quite shaken but just as the ceremony begins, his Blackberry buzzes. He excuses himself and leaves the church again, this time to find the caller, Jimmy Dockerson, waiting for him.
He brings Jimmy up to speed about Carla and suggests she needs to be taken care of.
Jimmy suggests this is a job for Tony to do himself. Tony refuses, saying that if he couldn’t kill Liam, he could never kill Carla. Then he threatens to go to the police himself, instead of waiting for Carla who, by the way, has come back to an empty Underworld.
Jimmy says he’s through killing for Tony but as they argue, he eventually agrees, even though killing Liam and killing Carla will be two different things. With Liam it was anonymous. With Carla, it will be up close and personal.
“Muhrduhr’s murduhr,” Tony says.
Jimmy leaves and Tony goes back to the church where the baptism begins.
The priests asks, “Do you reject the devil and all rebellions against God?”
“I reject him,” says Tony, as Jimmy goes into the factory to take another life.
I’m on a Boat!
Joe has happily been working on his sailboat in Gail’s driveway, despite Norris’s annoyance.
“My green apples are jiggling in their jars!” he protests.
Joe explains to Tina that he has wrecked everything good in his life: marriage, job, house. This is his chance to make something good from something that’s wrecked.
We also learn that Roy and Hayley are planning a trip to Transylvania. This is in reference to another one of those spin-off straight to DVD movies Corrie’s been doing lately (like when Fizz and Kirk went to South Africa last year). This won’t be a part of the regular storyline and I doubt CBC will ever run it.
Sally saw the necklace Kevin gave her and notes that it looks just like the nice one she begged Kevin to get her on holiday. But Kevin said it was too expensive. Molly says she got it for herself as a birthday present to her. They secretly mope about how they’re going to be able to bone next time.
And the whole time I was more interested in Jack’s story about how he got a bullworker but Vera used it instead and ended up becoming the house jar-opener. It also gave Vera the strength to overpower Jack whenever she wanted a bit of “how’s yer father?”
