Update for Monday is a bit condensed – just to get this out there.
Peter is struggling to say every word of the marriage vow in order to marry Leanne before he dies. For some reason Pastor dude can’t just cut him a break on this and is kind of insisting Peter says every word. He does rush pronouncing them man and wife seconds before Peter flatlines. The medical team rushes in to save him, but later in the hall, the doctor tells the family to prepare for the worse.
The weird thing is, only Leanne and Janice seem upset. Ken and Deidre a bit nonplus about it. Like, oh well, we might as well go home and get some rest, hopefully old boozer in there will make it through the night.
Carla shows up at the hospital, getting into the Intensive Care unit by pretending to be Leanne’s sister. When Leanne tells her how grave Peter’s condition is, Carla reacts with perhaps a few too many tears and that gets Leanne suspicious.
They have a discussion on how Carla is really ‘Carl’, but in no time Carla tells Leanne that she made the move on Peter but he told her that he was in love with Leanne. (Cause this is the exactly appropriate time to tell someone you’re in love with their man.)
Carla throws the Nick affair in Leanne’s face and when Leanne responds, Carla counters with:
‘Dip, dip, dip, my blue ship.’
Is she speaking in tongues?
Anyway, much arguing goes on, with Carla basically saying Leanne doesn’t deserve Peter and Leanne insisting that she’s in love with him.
Again, Carla has a rock solid point to make with:
‘Sailing on the water, like a cup and saucer.’
No worries Corrie fans, for those of you just as confused as I was about Carla’s spontaneous rhyming, I’ve found this for you:
That should clear things up for you.
Anyway, things get deliciously nasty when Carla asks what Leanne plans to do, does she plan to sell off the bookies and pawn Simon off on Ken and Deidre. She then adds that if Peter dies, that Leanne should try to look a bit sad before she runs off with Nick into the sunset. She tops off her cupcake with this cherry: ‘Mind you after all those paying customers, it must be nice to get the real thing.’
AND THERE IT IS, ladies and gents. I often wonder why Leanne’s working girl days don’t come out more often, especially from Carla. Seriously, maybe I hold a grudge longer than the next person but I really doubt I would have been best buds with the hooker found in the trunk of my husband’s death car….but that’s just me.
Oh wait, does Nick know about the hooking? I wonder if that’d be a game changer?
Molly and Sally are still chatting and Molly is struggling to talk and says a lot of things that seem like nonsense, but she finally confesses to Sally that Jack is Kevin’s son. She begs Sally not to hate her but Sally drops her hand and pulls away just as Molly expires.
(I have such mixed emotions about Molly’s confession. On one hand I realize she wants to make sure Jack knows his real father, but on the other hand it’s a bit: ‘Well, I’m about to shuffle off this mortal coil, but before I go, here something for you guys to deal with for the next 20 years, sukahs!‘)
Later, Sally staggers out on to the street to be met with Tyrone, who guesses from her expression that Molly has died. He asks if Molly left any message and Sally has nothing for him.
Maria comes in to comfort Tyrone and takes him to the café. A bit later Bill and Pam come in to see what’s happening on the street and very casually Pam asks about Molly. Tyrone tells her and there’s yet another heartbreaking scene.
Kevin gets back from the hospital and after a short visit to the café, he goes back to the house to get Sally. Sally is worried about Tyrone and asks what he ever did to deserve all this. When Sally waxes on about how young Molly was, Kevin gets nervous. Sally goes on about how young and pretty she was, she asks Kevin if he thought she was pretty.
She continues by telling Kevin that Tyrone wanted to know if Molly had any words, but she couldn’t give him anything, she wasn’t able to tell him that Molly said she had changed her mind and was coming back to him. She then goes on about how it seems that no one gets a happy ending and asks Kevin if she should have lied to Tyrone.
When she asks what Kevin would have said, he says, ‘I don’t know, Sal, you and I are the only thing that makes sense.’ ‘And the girls?’, she asks. ‘It goes without saying.’ he responds.
Then she turns, all Alexis Carrington like, and says, ‘And what about your son?’
Kevin gives a bit of a ‘Waaaaaaaaat?’ look
‘What about the son you fathered with Molly? The son you fathered with your best friend’s wife?’
Ches and Katie can’t get to Fizz’s house because the rescue teams won’t let them into the street. John takes advantage of this situation by pretending to be a rescuer to get to their house.
He drags Charlotte’s body out into the street and throws away the hammer. As he’s standing there, a paramedic shows up and John says he just found her. The paramedic looks at Charlotte then calls in a report that ‘She has a weak pulse.’
Becky, meanwhile, has decided to take things into her own hands and robs Dev’s shop for the $5,000 for Max.
Nick is talking to Emily and Norris and when they mention that Rita is at a friend’s. Nick tells them that her friend cancelled and she was going back to the shop. Norris immediately runs to the rescuers to tell them and the rescue of Rita begins.
Best Line of the Night
Sean remembering Ashley. ‘I remember we had a joke. I’d walk into the butchers and he say, ‘Minced?’ and I’d say, ‘Homophobe.’’
