Coronation Street Catch Up: the garden gnome in the head edition

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

Hey, look at the drone on Coronation Street!  No, not Norris, the other drone which Simon got for Christmas and is now using to spy on his Dad and Toyah who are having an aerobic, nicotiney lip lock in the ginnel.

Yes, that's right. Toyah is back and it looks like she's got it going on with Mr. Submarine aka Peter Barlow, the sexy sailor. Of course Toyah is married but her hubby is on the way out. Still, it's a bit awkward and Leanne's pregnant so better to keep it hush hush lest Lee get stressed out because her sister is dating her ex. As for Simon, well he's not too thrilled.

Good news! Pat Phelan's been discharged from the hospital just in time for New Year's. And, if that wasn't enough, the follicle-challenged felon proposed to Eileen and she said 'yes' to the slimy slaphead. This is bad news for Andy who decides to get out of town to avoid further blackmail by Phelan.

Speaking of surprises, Mary's son turns up to reunite with his Mom. It all goes swimmingly except that Mary fabricates a bit of history to avoid telling Jude about her sexual assault. Then, Jude asks Mary to come back home to South Africa with him and she accepts.

Bethany took an overdose of diet pills and was saved by a tanning salon smoothie and taken to hospital. She's fine now but Sarah decided to break up with Gary because of Bethany's infatuation with him.

Johnny has asked Jenny to move in with him, Peter and Nick have a rumble in the Street which includes Nick getting hit in the head with Sally's garden gnome. And, poor Anna takes a tumble down the stairs while looking after baby Jack.

Now for a few lines from last week:

Eileen awaits Phelan's response to her marriage proposal:
"Two little words, that's all I want"
(I'm evil?)

Todd to Eileen:
"You really want to be Eileen Phelan?"
(surely not)

Norris to Roy and Brian:
"I know I have a caustic manner"
(Now that you mention it...)

Michelle to Sally after learning that Sally got her TV:
"You stuck up, no-nothing mare"
(that's Councillor No-Nothing)

Jude recounts his employment history:
"For the first couple of years I was in sewage"
(what a waste)

Mary tells a fake story about the untimely death of Jude's father:
"A horrible dancing accident"
(a tragic tango?)

Simon confronts Peter:
"I saw you and Aunty Toyah snogging in the ginnel"
(and I have the video to prove it)


Well, patient punters, so ends another week. Nice to see Toyah back on the cobbles but sad to see Mary thinking about leaving the Street.  Thanks for stopping by and have a great week.
