We open with the cops telling Gail that a body they believe to be her husband’s was found in Lake Windermere.
“I don’t believe it! He wasn’t meant to die!” Oh, that’ll come back to haunt you.
“Er, take it easy, Mum! You’re not thinking clearly!” David says, jumping in.
They tell her that his fingerprints matched Joe’s because they had them on file from that time he took a hammer to the medical supplies at the local clinic.
David is sent to give Tina the bad news. She doesn’t take it well and goes over to Gail for confirmation (and I have to say Michelle Keegan does a great job in this episode).
Meanwhile Audrey wonders how many times are they going to sit in this house and take bad news. You and me both, Audrey.
And the news hits the Rovers so Sean orders up brandies for everyone.
After that it’s time to take the gang up to Cumbria to identify Joe’s body like I said she would.
They warn Gail and Tina that Joe’s body was in the water the entire time they were trying to cover his tracks so he might not look the same.
Well, it must have been pretty awful because the scream out of Tina is horrific. Tina then begins to fall apart singing that song about a mocking bird as the credit rolls.
