Coronation Street Catch-Up: the Saint Valentine's Day knocking shop edition

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

Alas, Saint Valentine seems to have deserted the denizens of Coronation Street.

Mary comes face to face with Mrs. Brendan and it's not pretty. Mary hides in Dev's house wearing her sweater of shame.  But Brendan, expert in all things extra-terrestrial and extra-marital, wants to keep stringing Mary along.

Gary returns to the street only to find Phelan. Kev is perplexed as to why Gary and Anna hate Phelan so much and Anna still hasn't told Kev the truth. Rita rescues Jenny Bradley from a sketchy flat and insists that she live with her. The Websters are not amused but Kev is prepared to forgive. Sally? Not so much.

Tracy is keeping the secret of Robert and Carla's one-nighter to herself - for the moment. Meanwhile Johnny finds out about said one-nighter and decides to threaten Robert. Carla is out of hospital and back at home. And, the police have caught Jamie, the scumbag who was one of the two felons who attacked Carla.

Fiz and Ty are relieved to learn that Hope's cancer seems to be in remission but things are tense since Ty spent a ton of money leaving the family in debt. Audrey has an angina episode and admits her true feelings for Ken but then tries to downplay her words.

And now for a few lines from the week that was:

Gary returns to find Phelan and tells him what he thinks:
"You're worse than vermin"
(whoa, that's offensive to Darryl the Rat)

Gail assures Ken that she can be subtle:
"That's my motto, my watchword, and my middle name"
(I thought it was McIntyre)

Gail tells Audrey she understands life's ups and downs:
"I was married to a serial killer, you don't have to tell me"
(fair point)

Dev catches Mary and Brendan having it off on the sofa:
"You're turning this place into a knocking shop"
(yes, so knock it off)

Mary tells Liz and Erica that he mother was prudish:
"She wouldn't even eat a banana in public"
(the most phallic of all fruits and vegetables) 

Erica explains the cruel reality to Mary
"The thing about married men is they're married"
(are they at least men?)

Carla explains her one-night stand to Johnny:
"I was in a bad place"
(the Dog and Gun?)

Well, Corrie Comrades, so ends another week. Tracy seems to be cooking up some James Bond villain revenge scenario. Phelan is smiling like an evil genius. And Jenny Bradley is back on the Street. This can't be good, can it?  Thanks for visiting and I hope you have a great week. Cheers!
