Corrie Standard Time: August 6, 2012.
We are now three weeks behind the current episodes. I think by the time we go back to the half hour episodes, we’ll be about a week behind.
This week saw Dev reeling from the news that Sunita and Karl have been carrying on behind his back.
Lloyd, having recently been dumped by Cheryl himself, took pity on Dev and lent a shoulder to cry on.
For their part, Sunita now thinks she and Karl are true love forever. Karl tells Stella that Sunita means nothing to him. She responds by freezing the joint account and throwing his debts back in his face. Yeah, have fun with that winner there, Sunita.
Anyway, Stella looks like she’s going to come out on top as Rob’s been giving her the glad eye every time he comes into the Rovers.
Michelle’s son Ryan came back from uni with a new personality and actor to match. He’s a complete jerk but it did result in Kylie working the switch at Streetcars. She should be full-time. He also does coke in the Rovers and blames it on Kylie. Michelle calls the cops on him and has a go at Gail when she thinks Kylie is his supplier.
Steve, wanting to get back together with Michelle, is extra nice to Ryan until Michelle figures out what’s up.
Michelle also claims not to know much about drugs, despite having been a touring musician for years.
I missed how Tracy ended up at Emily’s but it’s making Norris’s life Hell so I’m all for it. But by the end of the week, she was looking pretty ill. Has Samir’s kidney finally had enough of her?
Izzy lost her baby this week and told Gary she didn’t want to take the risk of trying again. And I have to say, Cherylee Houston was stellar.
Kirsty hit Tyrone with a vacuum cleaner tube and Tina saw the bruises so both she and Tommy are concerned for their friend. But when Tyrone and Kirsty start scuffling, she falls and gets a bruise, which is seen by Deirdre. So now she thinks Tyrone is hitting her.
In the end, Kirsty leaves him, despite his begging, just as he did with Molly. Poor Tyrone – the nicest most put upon guy on the Street.
Tommy and Tina’s trip to Blackpool was scuttled thanks to Kirsty’s interference.
It may be for the best. You never can tell what can happen in Blackpool.
