Coronation Street Catch Up: the more trouble than Brexit edition

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

Okay, so everyone lost a lot of money on those dodgy Phelan flats. But look on the bright side: Jason, Sarah, Yasmeen and Rita are now the proud owners of 30,000 pounds worth of tiles.

Yes, Vinnie's done a runner and left Todd and Pat in Weatherfield to tell everyone the bad news at a booze-fueled meeting at the Rovers. Eileen is shocked, kicks Pat out and later takes him back.

Meanwhile, the late Michael Rodwell is dispatched rather quickly. No stirring eulogies, no scenes at the church, no one reciting Auden's immortal 'Stop all the ice cream trucks'. His passing is mourned by Gail and Andy (wife and fake son, respectively). There's even a tearful reconciliation between Gail and Eileen who hug it out to the strains of the Bee Gees (no, not Stayin' Alive).

Norris is the delighted target of a lodger feud as Sean and Brian vie for his Airbandb favours. Both are eventually taken in by Norris.

Yasmeen hosts dinner with Rana's parents after which Zeedan decides he doesn't want to get married after all. Rana is very upset. Dev's kids are stealing scratch and save cards from the shop and cashing in the winners with the help of Bethany.

Ken is at home and sorry to hear that Daniel's Mom deserted him when he was 15. Adam is getting sleazier by the minute with his fake stolen car scam.  Only Eccles is helping keep Ken's stress level down. Mary is upset by something in her past and Aidan hires a lawyer for Maria much to the displeasure of Johnny and sister, Kate.

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

Phelan tries to deal with angry flat buyers at the Rovers:
"form a lynch mob if you want"
(Good idea)

Phelan again to the aggrieved mob:
"You're looking at a victim here, not a villain"
(actually we're looking at a villain)

Cathy to Jenny Bradley:
"Them flats have caused more trouble round here than Brexit"
(take that, Nigel Farage)

Phelan tires to comfort Andy about Michael's death:
"He died a hero "
(Phelan should know, he was there)

Zeedan to Rana
"I can't marry you"
(but we can still be friends, can't we?)


Well, festive friends, so ends another week as we head into the holiday season on Coronation Street. I suspect Santa knows who's been naughty and who's been nice (well, we certainly do). Enjoy the week and thanks for stopping by. All the best.
