This week, a very jealous Steve and Eva got in their heads that Rob and Michelle were, in addition to winning back an important client, were also doing the dirty in Sheffield, city of romance.
Well, the client was suitably impressed with what he saw and decided to celebrate with a good old-fashioned knees up which Rob and Michelle had to go along with to keep him keen.
When Steve and Eva got the posh hotel, desk clerk Neil Armstrong (conceived during Apollo 11) refused to divulge their room number until Eva turned on the charm.
After a few drinks, Rob confessed a lifelong crush on Michelle but she shot him down, claiming it was the drink talking. When Steve arrived, he discovered that after all, he had nowt to worry about as Michelle had no interest in her dead husband’s
brother friend (thanks to Tvor for the correction). Eva, on the other hand, did as it was a naked hostess who emerged from Rob’s bathroom and not, as Steve feared, Michelle.
Well, Rob found himself dumped and Steve was a little more secure in his relationship with Michelle. Eva did a good jump embarrassing Rob in front of Underworld, while wearing a weird dress, but she still found herself turning to former boyfriend Nick.
It was Nick who cheered Eva up a little, saying she had a lot to offer. Eva takes this as a sign that there may be something between her and him. But when Leanne, depressed over the finalization of her divorce, is asked by Nick for her hand in marriage, she rebuffs him. Nick is depressed think he just can’t measure up to violence prone, alcoholic, child endangering, unfaithful Peter Barlow (except for the unfaithful part). Eva know has a project that involves breaking those two up.
In an email exchange this week among myself, Debbie, and Glacia, Debbie had this to day about Eva, her actions this week, and That Dress:
I think Eva is the kind of young woman who would think that looks
classy (said in a well beck-street accent). She is the kind of young
girl who’s ambitions are strictly man related. I think she’d think she
looked hot, but doesn’t really know the line between sexy and alluring
and trashy and cheap.
Kylie for her part is still bummed about not having as much money as Leanne but doesn’t exactly help her case when she’s seen guzzling red wine from the bottle.
Kirsty is now the PA at Underworld. It’s just never going to happen for Sally, is it? Kirsty has decided that Tyrone is not allowed to go to the mummies group because one of the mums signs her texts with a kiss. Tyrone goes to her kid’s birthday party anyway which drives Kirsty into another range. Realizing that Fizz had something to do with it, she arranges to have Fizz injure her finger on the sewing machine.
Marcus and Maria went out on their first official date, which went sour when he refused to introduce Maria as his girlfriend to his boss from the hospital.
Kirk drove to the Isle of Wight when he misprogrammed the GPS but Rob thought that London would have been his first clue.
Mandi is updating the jukebox with proper music.
Sophie came home this week. She’ll be on crutches but will continue to see Jenna but she sounded a little disappointed that their sessions will start decreasing as Sophie’s recovery continues.
