The show opens with Kevin on the phone with the hospital getting Sally’s first appointment for her radiation treatment.
Sophie rolls in. Turns out that after Kevin went to town on God, Sophie went to Ryan’s place to stay the night. I think we all know nothing happened. Kevin apologized for freaking out the night before and explained that he guesses that after they were given the all clear by the doctors he had all this anger built up that he had to find a place for and has nothing to do with the guilt he feels for running around with Molly while Sally was protecting him from her cancer diagnosis.
A bit later on Kevin is making Sally’s favourite, Chicken stew, for dinner. Rosie and Sophie are helping by bickering constantly beside Kevin. He tells them that with Sally’s treatment they are all going to have to pitch in with the house and begs them to call a truce for the time being. Really, the source of all this agro is Rosie’s interesting decision to have breast augmentation. This is bizarre to me as she is 19 and some pretty nice ones anyway. However, I don’t understand the world of ‘glamour’ models. Finally Sophie says, “If you don’t tell him I will.” Two beats, “Rosie is getting a boob job.” Obviously this blows Kevin’s mind, but we will have to wait until tomorrow to find out what his reaction will be. But, I’m going to go out on a limb here and say, he won’t be best pleased.
Other Story lines that relate to the Websters: Graeme has asked Rosie out. He told her she was like some beautiful flower and perfect.
I guess if I were Joe and I was being threatened and assaulted by some pock-faced load shark I wouldn’t be thinking straight either. I mean, why call the police? The better plan is to lie to everyone in your family and make yourself a street nuisance. So, for reasons I am not entirely clear on he pretends to have back spasms and rests on the couch as Gail heads off to work. David is also stamping around the house being himself and there is a bit of an argy bargy where Joe accuses David of needing to learn some independence. Ok, Joe…
As soon as Gail leaves Joe hops off the couch and watches her walk down the street. I guess he is looking for the loan shark because he needs a free moment to head to the corner shop. While he is out he runs into Jason who mentions that he heard that Joe and Bill had a falling out. He also mentions that they had an agent from some sort of property sale company in at the flat. Joe is on that like Kelly Crabtree on a free drink.
A bit later on the agent shows up and she takes a look at the house and then offers 35 grand less than what the house has been evaluated at. I don’t really understand why Joe thinks Gail will go for this. When Gail does get home, she meets the agent and is clearly angry. Our girl is blinking like strobe light in a gay dance club and promptly shows the agent the door.
Well doesn’t that just cause a huge upset. I mean, why wouldn’t Gail just be happy to sell her house for way less than it is valued at just to bail out this due, who is clearly a freeloader? If only they could put all their problems on a boat and sail them away.
So, their argument moves out into the street where Joe actually blames Gail for his problems since she is a bad luck charm. Fair dues, Gail is kind of a nightmare. But she certainly did not cause Joe’s money problems. Plus, isn’t he forgetting that he was a loser WAY before he met Gail. In fact, wasn’t it his loser hood that made Gail attracted to him in the first place.
As they are screaming in the street, Jason and Leanne stop to watch the show (Jason should take note since he is hooked up with Joe’s daughter who isn’t exactly stable). Audrey and David come out of the salon just in time to hear some really nasty stuff come out of Joe’s mouth. Then the piece de resistance, “No wonder this one tried to kill you. It was self-defense!” Oh, that was off-side, yet totally accurate. Gail slaps him and David holds her back and tells Joe to go. I think we all know Gail will forgive him.
Tyrone is still trying to get Molly back. I am amazed by with whole story line mainly because Molly, for months, has been a total b*tch to both Tyrone and Kevin and maintained both relationships and her husband is begging her to go back to him. I just don’t get it.
He goes into the corner shop (By the way, I laughed out loud last week when Molly told Dev “I love this job.” Really?) to find Molly to suggest that they start over as friends (Hello, Tyrone, she would be a TERRIBLE friend). She isn’t interested.
Over at the Rovers things are still really frosty between Steve and Becky. I guess it is a pretty big argument. But, neither of them are doing a good ob of trying to come together on this. So in the morning Steve, Becky, Liz and Amy are sitting at breakfast. As they are behaving like children Becky answers her phone and leaves the room. When she comes back in She goes over to Amy and says “I will see you later.” Amy says “Goodbye Becky.” They should really just replace Amy with a guinea pig or some other more
talented non-sentient being. Seriously, is she related to one of the producers or something? Is she working for free?
A bit later on Steve pops into the bar dressed head to toe in motorcycle gear. Seems that he has purchased a motorcycle and as he is showing it to everyone outside Becky gets off the bus clutching a garbage bag. She doesn’t seem to care about what is going on with the motorcycle and Steve drives off with Kelly sitting on the back.
