Coronation Street Catch Up: the Pamela Escobar edition

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

If Rosie is Weatherfield's answer to Pablo Escobar, does that make Norris "El Cheapo"?
Just asking.

It looks like that brick of cocaine which Rosie unwittingly smuggled into the country is creating havoc. Rosie (dubbed Pamela Escobar by Adam) and Sophie bury the coke in the allotment, then Adam digs it up (the only real work he's ever done). Adam's plan? Sell the coke and use the cash to open the first branch of Barlow & Grimshaw (slogan: felons helping felons). Todd backs out of the deal when he discovers the provenance of the drugs.

Meanwhile Chesney and Sinead are over. Sinead slept with Daniel and Adam told Ches. Now Sinead and Daniel are living together while Daniel writes essays. Ken is not impressed by Daniel's preference for fornication over education, or Masters & Johnson over a Master's degree.

Luke wants to go to Bristol to find Andy but Phelan manipulates Tracy so that the trip gets cancelled. And, he seems to be ripping off Ken during the Barlow's kitchen reno. Is there anything that Phelan can't do?

Speaking of despicableness, that Nathan fellow gets arrested by the cops (in connection with a missing girl) only to beg Bethany to lie and provide him with an alibi. Leanne is not talking to her sisters (after the fallout from the revelation of Toyah's extended legover with Peter) and Simon wants to keep it that way.

And,finally, Sophie is taking over Tim's window cleaning business and intent on climbing the ladder of success.

Now for a few lines from last week:

Chesney storms into Underworld to confront Sinead:
"It's not what she's been doing, it's who she's been doing"
(Daniel might say "whom" she's been doing)

Chesney to Sinead:
"So you sleep with the first virgin who comes along?"
(No point waiting. There aren't that many on the Street to begin with)

Daniel is supposed to be writing a paper but then Ken spies Sinead in a towel:
"Some essay"
(wait till you see the body paragraph)

Ken gives Phelan more money for the kitchen and asks him not to tell his family:
"They seem to think I'm a helpless, gullible old man"
(as does Phelan)

Ken presents a bottle of wine for dinner with Sinead and Daniel
"A naive little red"
(I prefer a shy rye)

Well, Weatherfield Watchers, so ends another week. I have a few complaints. Yes, I'm happy to see the return of Rosie but she's like a cartoon of her former self, too over the top IMO. And that Adam really is a consummate plank - he makes Canada look bad. Anyway, thanks so much for stopping by and have a great week. Cheers!
