Update for the Week Ending June 21, 2013

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.



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.'”

“Sure, I know him. His radio show is on right after Lloyd’s on Saturday.

“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?”

“Two weeks.”


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?

    ROFL at Eileen and Deirdre. And at Deirdre’s idea of a glass of wine.

    ‘I have a lot of belts’ – priceless.

    Did anyone notice the HUGE glasses of wine Michelle and Carla were drinking at the Bistro. I wish the Bistro was on my street! During the scene at Sally’s when Dev was breaking down at Adele I was saying to myself would someone please give that poor man a hug! I am amazed at the lack of sensitivity shown by members of the street towards Dev and his children for their loss. Especially the women. Eileen’s paranoia over Paul’s job is becoming ridiculous! Her partner is a firefighter deal with it! I expected Tina to want to keep the baby but at the end of the day he isn’t her child. To be very blunt I don’t think any of the parties involved would be good parents to the little boy. He is a delicate little preemie who will need lots of care and I don’t any of that lot are sensible enough to do a good job. That’s just my opinion.

    Why doesn’t Eileen just ask to work nights? Fat Brenda could probably use a change. ;o-

    Craig tinker?

    • John says:

      Oops. Meant to write “Craig Tinker,” as it’s his proper name and not “that Craig tinker” as he is Beth Tinker’s son and not a tinsmith.

  6. Bea says:

    Tina! Tina! Tina! Don’t you understand, you can’t pi$$ off the Armstrong clan like that and get away with it. Plus, it’s not really your baby, you know. I mean, legally it’s half Gary’s, not to mention the moral and genetic issues. But, having said that, it promises to be a good story line for a while.

  7. eps says:

    Maybe Mandy is being held hostage somewhere with Tim and Faye. Amy and Simon might be with them

  8. Bea says:

    Beth – “Has anyone ever died on your toilet?”
    Sylvia – “That could be arranged”. – Priceless
    Is Karl going to be a reincarnation of Richard Hillman?
