Coronation Street Catch Up: the Oliver McPlattersby edition

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

Since Leanne had her baby in an elevator, shouldn't his name be Otis? Rather than Oliver (McDonald-Platt-Battersby)?

Anyhow, that's the big news. While trapped in an elevator Toyah and Leanne share that most magical of human moments (sibling aggro?): child birth. Mother and baby are doing fine which is more than you can say for Steve (racked with guilt since he's the biodad), Michelle (in mourning for her own child), Toyah (who desperately wants a child of her own) and Nick (destined not to be registered as father).  What a mess.

Bethany spends the night with creepy Nathan and it looks like the tanning salon perv's plan for poor Bethany is working like a charm. She's smitten with the aging oily reptile and Sarah and Gary are concerned but not aware of exactly what's going on.

Aidan is back and, surprise, he likes Jenny's idea for a line of mastectomy bras but sadly the client backs out and the project is in peril. Roy finally comes to his senses and kicks Brian out of his flat but Brian gathers intel from Cathy and wheedles his way back to Chez Roy through the strategic deployment of  Roy's fave dish, Shepherd's Pie.

Adam ostensibly applies for a job at a local law firm but uses the occasion to sweet talk the secretary and gather info about a drug-oriented client, possibly as a means to unload his brick of cocaine.

Young Liam confesses to killing Darryl the Rat (Craig's pet) so he can go to jail to see his Mom. Poor little lad. Oh, and Beth is back.

And now for some lines from the week that was:

Sarah to Bethany regarding news of a young girl being kidnapped:
"There's some horrible people out there"
(and they're mostly at the Supreme tanning salon)

Adam to Daniel:
"Working for other people is for losers"
(so unemployment is for winners?)

Bethany to Nathan:
"I don't want to sleep on the sofa"
(actually you really do)

Michelle confesses to Steve:
"I tried to kiss Robert"
(He fathered a sprog with Leanne, so let's call it even)

Steve to Liz re: the birth of Oliver:
"It's their baby, not mine"
(that's not what the DNA says)

Well, cobble compadres, so ends another week. The baby crisis is heading into high gear and I fear Steve's troubles will only get worse.  Thanks for stopping by and have a great week. Cheers!

  1. Now if we could just get Nathan to use those over-sized incisors to chomp down on a hot wire, that would be 2 rats electrocuted.
    Much as I like the surname McPlattersby, it's not accurate. Nick is not a Platt. He's a Tilsley
