Coronation Street Catch-Up: the suspicion of bigamy edition

a look back at least week on Canada's Coronation Street.

Hey Todd! Put me down for one of those new flats. They sound great what with new floors, doors, bathrooms, tiles, walls and those fancy flat glass things which let the light in.... um oh yeah: windows.

Yes it looks like Todd has gone over to the Dark Side and become Satan's scam salesman for Phelan and Vinnie. The project has the green light and sales are already through the non-existent roof. Also, Todd has broken up with Rev Billy who's thinking of breaking up with the church,

Elsewhere, Alya is starting to get suspicious what with Sonia's flirty ways when she's with Sharif.

Roy's birthday arrives but Cathy forgets because she's trying to get Alex's Dad to fork over 15 grand for a down payment on one of the above-mentioned fake flats. Alex's Dad seems to indicate that he might not in fact be Alex's Dad.

Mary is at loose ends now that Dev and Erica are steaming ahead with their relationship. To fill the time, she gets a job at Tracy's flower shop (now that Todd has left to work with Phelan and Vinne).

Kirk is devastated by the news that Beth is still married to her jailbird husband. Even worse, Craig turns her in and the police arrest her on suspicion of bigamy. Freddy gets a reprimand from one of Sadie's friends for being too chummy with Audrey too soon after the death of his wife. So Freddy and Audrey agree to be friends without benefits.

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

Phelan to Vinnie:
"Better get your shears ready. Time to do some fleecing"
(some people are going to feel mighty sheepish later)

Police officer to Beth:
"I am arresting you on suspicion of bigamy"
(hmm, wonder if she gets twice the number of conjugal visits?)

Freddy makes small talk with Audrey:
"I had a goat once, he was called Andrew"
(umm, tell me less)

Phelan shares his company mission statement with Eileen:
"creating great new homes for local people"
(it's kinda like Habitat for Inhumanity)

Andy apologizes to Steff for his gender's shortcomings:
"That's men for you, idiots the lot of them"
(true dat)

Sonia apologizes to Yasmeen for being a bother:
"All I do is get under your feet"
(and under your husband...)

Eileen tells off Todd for reporting her missing:
"I was in the whirlpool when the police showed up"
(looks like she got herself in hot water)


Well, Corrie Compadres, so ends another week. Beth is a bigamist. Todd is a con man. Sharif is an adulterer. Is nothing sacred? I guess we'll find out next week. Thanks for stopping by and have a great week. Cheers!
