This week, Dev’s efforts to clear Sunita’s name began to take shape as he started retracing her steps in the events leading up to Rovers fire. As he gradually made progress, Steve and Lloyd began to be convinced while Karl, knowing that it all leads back to him, is doing damage control, trying to convince everyone that Dev’s grief is causing him to see patterns where none exist.
But we also noted this week, that Craig tinker was acting mighty odd around Dev and Karl. He was around the night of the fire and I think he knows that he clearly has a piece of the puzzle but doesn’t know what to do about.
Dev also showed up at Sally’s house to grill Sophie but it got uncomfortable for all so Sally’s plan to rid him by putting on Adele backfired when it turned out “Someone Like You” was their song.
STEP AWAY FROM THE ADELE!
So the moment we all saw coming arrived and Tina decided to keep baby Jake. It was rather heartbreaking when the baby, who was off the incubator and was allowed to be held for the first time, was picked up by Tina just as Izzy arrived so that must have been tough for Izzy who’s been something of a bystander in all of this.
At Ben’s engagement party, Marcus had a hard time introducing Maria as his girlfriend to his gay friends. He finally said, “I’m a gay man who fell in love with a woman.”
This was news to Maria.
“Remember Tom Robinson?” he asked Maria. “He had that song, ‘Glad to be Gay.'”
“Well, he’s gay and he fell in love with a woman, just like me.”
“So what am I, a trend like Atkins? How long did you last Atkins?”
Sally’s internet date didn’t show up.
Deirdre and Eileen got drunk for a scene that should really be happening every week.
“You have a lot belts,” Eileen said. “Where do you get them all?”
“It’s a website. You want the address?”
“I love the potpourri in your bathroom. You notice people don’t have potpourri anymore? I didn’t eat it.”
*drinks Eileen’s wine*
Someone mentioned Mandy. Remember her?
