Our two-year old’s been staying up later lately so we’ve decided to formally introduce him to Corrie.
In this episode, he saw two fistfights, a child freezing on a balcony, Steve and Becky having sex in the kitchen, and Sophie and Sian kind of admitting they’re gay for each other.
He’s still more interested in this video than anything else:
Alan! Aadi is still stuck on the balcony at Dev’s place thanks to a broken door handle. Fortunately Graeme, driving by in his wagon, sees this and uses his ladder to save Aadi and force the door to open from the outside. Dev and Sunita thank him profusely and invite him for brandy and those upscale fancy chips with the sea salt. Only the best at Dev’s.
Graeme tries to discuss child safety with Dev but Dev turns it around to suggest that a two bedroom flat isn’t the best place to raise two children. Sunita doesn’t want the kids going back and forth so Dev suggests they get a new house entirely. She says she’ll think about it.
Smarmy Nick isn’t having the best day. He got socked in the jaw by an enraged Jason after learning that Tina kissed him at Christmas. Then, for no reason other than he hates David, decides to rub that little fact into his fact, and gets a fist in the mouth which gives him a sore and an even bigger smirk.
Meanwhile, Jason went to cry to Eileen about screwing things up with Tina.
Me: “James, is Jason happy or sad?”
My kid: “Sad.”
And Ciaran went off looking for the rota and stumbled upon Steve and Becky playing “stuff the manicotti” in the kitchen. This causes Steve to lose his mojo, his ummph, and various other euphemisms for an erection. Turns out that they’ve been doing it everywhere except Emily Bishop’s house so I’m sure he’ll bounce back. But they need to get away so Steve books a trip somewhere.
And John got fired from his teaching job for not disclosing his criminal record. He’s told he’ll never teach again. But the boss’s Belfast accent reminds me of Jim McDonald, so he does.
And Ryan Conner is being a jerk to Sian over her wanting to hang out with Sophie over him during Easter weekend. Sian storms out and she and Sophie have gone off men and they’d really just hang out with each other.
