Previously on Corrie…
John Stape confronted Charlotte about the flowers but she denied it. He also got a letter, kidnapper-style, with cut out letters from magazines, reading “I saw what you did”
Ciaran and Cheryl are going to work for the Joinery, which will totally, totally, totally replace the Rovers as the bar of choice on the Street.
Owen’s coming for dinner to the Stapes so that everyone can discuss all that sex Chesney and Katy are having.
Kylie’s Greek boyfriend looks like Justin Trudeau.
Corrie goes to one hour a night in September so I hope you weren’t planning on watching anything else for the next year.
Corrie Standard Time: November 1, 2010 (almost ten months ago).
Steve borrowed the rest of the Max money he needed from Lloyd with the promise to pay him back as with a loan against the Rovers. Lloyd just can’t say no to giving a kid a good home. In a bar. With people who buy children.
Kylie’s getting a lunch from Roy, claiming she’ll pay it back along with the £100 she owes him. Steve and Becky come in and prepare to exchange the hostage. They give her half now and the other when she hands over Max. Kylie goes over and gives Roy £100 and says she imagines he’s not bothered about the lunch.
“For some reason, I’m not.”
Instead of taking off with the money Kylie manages to come round later with Max and they all retire to the back room to complete the deal. Steve hands over the money – RIGHT IN FRONT OF MAX’S WICKLE FACE – and Kylie says goodbye, presumably forever, to her son. But heads out to the bar for a drink before she goes. Yeah, that could have handled a little better. He and Simon can commiserate over being unwanted children.
Liz, irritated that Michelle is going to work for Carla, and Ciaran is going to work for Nick, bars them both. Then, just irritated by Kylie in general, she bars her too.
“Good night,” says Justin Trudeau on their way out. “Sleep well.”
Owen comes over to discuss the Chesney/Katy situation (Katney? Chesty?) with the Stapes. Owen thought they were allowing Chesty to have the sex in their home but John angrily denies this (he’s stressed) and says that from now on, they aren’t allowed to get up to their shenanigans while under the Stapes’ roof.
Owen then goes over to the Rovers and tells Liz of his successful plan to keep his daughter under lock and key. Liz pretty much rolls her eyes at this.
John meanwhile goes over to Charlotte to confront her about the letter but she’s got one too!
Kevin wants a DNA test. Molly says no way but we all know where this is heading: Confrontation on the Maury Povich show.
Sophie and Sian want to have a party but are afraid people who show up to gawp at the lesbians. Rosie assures them that they will have the best party ever and when they learn that Rosie and Jason are a couple, they figure everyone will have someone else to gossip about.
