Update for the Week Ending September 20. The Power of Roy and Hayley’s Relationship


Two things happened this week so let’s get to it.

Hayley went into hospital to have a tumour removed. Sadly, it was inoperable and the surgeon was very blunt in Hayley’s prospects: with chemo, she may have a year. Without it, she’ll have six months. 

Pancreatic cancer is often undiagnosed before it’s too late to do anything as it rarely shows symptoms. Hayley is going to die of this.




The news hits everyone very hard: Carla breaks down, Sally is empathetic, Fizz, who was their foster child, is devastated, and Roy bites off Emily Bishop’s head for discussing how her faith helped her through the loss of her Ernest.

Hayley begins to make her bucket list, which includes teaching Roy to drive.

Their love for each other is strong but Roy still won’t kiss her in front of the others:

Thinking he caused the fire, Craig ran away. But after Karl tracks him down, he comes back with a tale that he’s being bullied by two Slytherin boys but said Slytherin boys find Craig and decide to bully him for accusing them of bullying him. That’s when Karl lays into the boys and we get the first ever Karl cam:

Meanwhile Dev and Jason are investigating Karl’s involvement in the fire by asking questions like “Tommy, when we all did the Full Monty, when did Karl take his clothes off?”

Meanwhile, Max is feeling left out which the new baby in the house so David suggests he adopt him so they’ll all be a family together.

Audrey’s home repairs get more and more expensive so Maria, trying to be nice, suggests she bunk with her and Marcus. To her chagrin, Audrey takes them up on her offer.

Tim is so not ready for commitment that even accompanying Sally as her date to Stella’s wedding gives her cold feet.

The wedding is this week. Will Karl’s crimes be revealed before they reach the alter, at the alter, or after the alter?

    I vote ‘at the alter’ ;o-

    I’ve been finding Audrey’s behaviour implausible. She keeps mentioning the expense of everything but she’s accepting Owen’s costly information about her house repairs without getting a second opinion. Whenever a storyline seems so unlikely it usually means there’s more to it and the writers have resorted to an awkward way of working things in. I’m left wondering what’s really going on.

      I’m wondering if it’s leading to a crisis of some sort for Audrey. For years, she’s been the one who lived in the nice house in the suburbs and she always had a bit of money in the ban. Is all of this leading to Audrey spending all her money on home repairs or even losing the house?

      Somehow I can’t see the whole point of it being that she’s going to bunk with Maria and Marcus for a while, as funny as that may be.

        I was wondering along similar lines. I find it hard to believe she has no friends with whom she could stay for the time necessary for repairs. She seems to be experiencing a crisis re: both ready cash as well as relationships.

    Thanks for your updates. I’m having trouble watching Coronation Street right now because my mom passed away from pancreatic cancer two years ago. Like many cases, her tumour was also inoperable so this is too close to home. I’ll have to stick to the insanity on the Y&R till this story takes its course but will check in here.

      I’m very sorry for your loss. My brother-in-law died of the same thing two years ago this month so I can relate to how hard this is. They’re handling it very well on the show but it doesn’t make it easy to watch.

    It’s been almost 14 years since i lost my mom to pancreatic cancer. It makes it hard to watch this, but they are handling it wonderfully.
