Granger Danger

spoiler alert: this post makes reference to the June 14 episode on CBC

If you thought one Granger was tough to handle, brace yourself for Becky Granger Jr (aka Kylie). We are introduced to young Kylie in a genteel scene reminiscent of a Henry James novel or perhaps the mannered protocol of Upstairs Downstairs. I'm kidding of course. Becky actually busts in on lil' sis like Jason Bourne on steroids and proceeds to trash the joint in a rage. As the two Grangers slug it out like extras from Robocop, we can't help but notice the classy digs which Kylie is inhabiting.

That doesn't last because the guy who actually owns the house has the temerity to show up (yes, he's a pilot and no, he's not one of Deirdre's ex-boyfriends).  The reason for Becky's violent house call is revenge. She wants to know why lil Kylie gave a bad recommendation to the adoption committee and scotched Becky's chance to adopt a nice little non-smoking, non-drinking child.

Anyhoo... after a couple of left hooks and some UFC choke holds, the two sisters start talking and one thing leads to another. Before you can say "lock up the booze, the hotpots and money in the till", Becky returns to the Rovers Return with a rover (what the frig are you on about? - ed).  The bottom line? Becky has brought Kylie to live with her and Steve at the pub. Well, that should go swimmingly, don't you think?

All I can say is Roy and Hayley better lock up their woody (and their car too - ed) because Kylie looks to be every bit as wild as her big sister. On the other hand, I'm sure Slug (or Slag or Slime or whatever his name is) will be rather chuffed.
