Corrie Catch-Up: We are now four months and two weeks behind the current episodes.
This week saw the aftermath of Carla’s ordeal at the hands of Frank Foster, Frank’s arrest, and Carla’s decision to seek counselling for her trauma. No fancy wedding reception at the bistro, then.Frank played the jilted lover to all involved and even managed to goad Peter into giving him a good smack into his consistently expressionless face with his gross "I gave ‘er what she wanted" comment. Peter’s reaction to Carla’s ordeal has Leanne wondering if Carla’s love isn’t so unrequited at all. It is, but Peter is walking a thin line here between being caring friend and being something more. After being arrested in the Rovers, where all break-ups, proposals, wedding receptions, baby deliveries, deaths, and arrests occur, everyone knows what Frank is charged with and he is later denied bail.
Kevin and Sally got back together for one night but when Kevin started celebrating a bit too soon, Sally threw him back on his ear. Rosie’s back with a new, short n’ spikey haircut. Ever since Annie Lennox in the Eurythmics back in the day, I’ve had a fondness for the short n’ spikey look on gals so I approve. Rosie had a modeling appearance that went awry on the Lorraine Kelly Show (The UK equivalent to Marilyn Denis, I think). The video of the dust-up went viral in Corrieworld but I think that, and some other Rosie-related stuff, is happening off-screen so it’s hard for us in Canada to find out what that was about. Bill and Auntie Pam are engaged. Hearing of Kevin’s good fortune (seriously, this man does not experience consequences), Pam gives him a piece of her mind. Now, I do sympathize with her as Molly was like a daughter to her and seeing Kevin, living back at the house, with their son, and 200K richer, must sting. Still, she rows with him so loudly that poor Bill has a heart attack.No more fry-ups for you, then!
Tyrone’s new gal Kirsty is a super jealous, quick tempered piece of work. And she’s a cop. "Faaaanntastic!" thinks Tina.
After soaking themselves trying to fix Anna’s pipes, Anna and Owen head upstairs for a bit of plumbing of their own. The next day Anna freaks out and avoids Owen, explaining later that Eddie was her first and only partner. For his part, Owen explains that he doesn’t do dating very well either but they agree to keep seeing each other. I also have a theory that back in the day, Eddie Windass had some appeal but started to let himself go in bad way as soon as he was married. Anna stuck around to make sure her son didn’t end up in jail and to mitigate Uncle Len’s influence and because Eddie made awesome cakes. It’s the only thing that makes sense.
