Coronation Street TGIF: the two-faced, backstabbing tramp edition

a look back at last week on Canada's Coronation Street

What I want to know is: what colour bins go out on which day? That's the kind of week it's been on Coronation Street, a week when refuse bin schedules are suddenly the most compelling story.

Elsewhere, Jenny Bradley is concocting some kind of weird kidnapping scheme for Baby Jack. Speaking of babies, Faye and Anna are at odds over Miley and Faye's new motherly responsibilities. Tony's dastardly plan to take over the Rovers with Tracy is well underway.

Liz gets roughed up by Tony's rent-a-thugs (part of Tony's scheme) and goes to Audrey's for a champagne and curlers session with the miraculously pregnant Erica. Eileen and Adrian are getting serious but Todd keeps stirring the pot by sexting long distance suitor Jeff in Dubai, on her unknowing behalf.

Rev Billy decides not to hide his relationship with Sean, and the Bishop be damned (so to speak). Zeedan gets fired from his handyman job thanks to Simon hanging around. Mary is staying with Julie now that her camper van is impounded. Steve has a dog and a new best man (no, it's not the dog; it's Lloyd).

And now for a few lines from the week:

Mary reflects on her time at school to Sophie:
"It's a murderous place for the unusually gifted"
(like Hogwarts for muggles)

Tracy to Tony re: Liz:
"Oh, the two-faced, backstabbing tramp"
(isn't that the title of Tracy's autobiography?)

Liz impresses on Eileen the seriousness of Tony's financial situation:
"Whats more important? Steve's pride or Tony's kneecaps?"
(Hmm, can I get back to you on that?)

Eileen wants to know the latest from Rev. Billy:
"What did the Bishop say?"
(dunno, it was in Latin)

Tracy to Tony:
"My heart may be cold but my bed is warm"
(thanks to the miracle of electric blankets)

Tracy wants to help Tony behind the bar at the Rovers:
"You need an extra pair of hands"
(and a conscience wouldn't hurt either)

Sally reminds Tim about their intimate supper plans:
"It's our dinner adoo tonight"
(sounds like much à deux about nothing)

Simon asks Zeedan an important question:
"If you had to choose between wrestling a snake and eating a cockroach, what would you choose?"
(depends on the snake... and the cockroach)

Liz does not want to join Erica's 'club':
"The in-the-club club? No thanks"
(been there, done that)

Erica to Liz re: Tony:
"Men like him don't come along every day"
(whew! that's a relief)


Well, Corrie Companions, so ends another week and there's lots to come including David's court appearance with Callum and Tony's continuing plan to get his hands on the Rovers for Tracy, someone who makes Lady Macbeth look like Cinderella. Then there's Steve's dog. How will that love story end? Keep watching and thanks for stopping by. Have a great week and I'll meet you back here next week. Cheers!
