Well, you've got to hand it to Tracy: she's certainly in touch with her sexuality. Or, as she herself so quaintly puts it, "I need to get laid." And, by jove, she certainly seems to be achieving that objective... one Platt at a time. The rate she's going, she'll have slept with most Platts - living or dead - by the end of the next episode. Poor ol' Ted (Gail's gay father) better watch out just in case Tracy, having notched David and Nick, will be "going for a Platt/hat trick" as they say. But I digress. As you know I was sandbagged by the Monday Corrie schedule so I missed a few choice lines but here's a roundup for the week. Hark!
Gail to Kevin who dares to emerge from his designated area in the house:
"Get back to the conservatory!"
(and stay there until further notice!)
Tracy arrives back on Coronation Street and announces her return:
"It's the most exciting new arrival for 2,000 years"
(even more exciting than the iPad 2?)
Gail confronts her jailhouse nemesis, Tracy:
"It's the public who are no longer safe with a lying, evil bitch like you roaming the streets"
(but, on the plus side, the prison community must be safer)
Tracy tells Gail she's not so sure about her innocence:
"I reckon your story had more holes in it than Joe's boat"
(oh oh, catfight alert, this could unleash a Gail Force)
Tracy exchanges greetings with Rita and sees Norris:
"I see you've still got your bald sidekick"
(yes she's evil, but every now and then ol' Trace hits one out of the park)
Norris replies to Tracy's request for a job:
"I'm afraid I don't have any vacancies for homicidal maniacs at the moment"
(but check back later, you never know...)
Eileen describes Tracy:
"I think she's the devil's spawn"
(at least that's what it says on her business card)
Audrey rebuffs Tracy's request for a hair styling appointment:
"We'll get on to tending to our non-murdering customers"
(yeah, you and John Stape will have wait until later)
John Stape talks frankly to Dr. Carter
"I'm a bad man, doctor"
(a very, very bad man)
Tracy to Ken and Deirdre:
"You're still a pair of randy old goats"
(That does it! Ken's going to the library... again)
Well, lovers of Corrie, that's it for another boffo week. What else can the writers possibly unleash after a tram crash, death & destruction and Tracy Barlow? The ghost of Tony Gordon? Richard Hillman Jr.? I guess we'll just have to wait and find out next week. Have a great weekend and thanks, as always, for stopping by.
