Coronation Street Catch Up: Tracy Barlow's special Mother's Day edition

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

Just in time for Mother's Day, Tracy has a plan to abdicate her Momly duties by doing a runner with Rob the prison escapee and leaving Amy behind.

Why, you ask? Well it's complicated. First Tracy thinks Amy might be responsible for Ken's downstairs tumble. Second, Tracy realizes that she loves that big lug Rob, despite his foibles (like murder).  They've got a car and they're going on the run. Think of it as Thelma and Louise with a heterosexual twist.

Elsewhere the creepathon continues at the tanning salon as Nathan pressures Bethany into having a drink with Neil the slimeball. Sarah makes an attempt to bring Bethany back home but Gary spoils the effort by punching Nathan.

Sally is till suffering panic attacks and Rosie discovers that the troll is none other than Sally's sister.

Billy has a surprise for Todd and his name is Drew. Drew is Billy's ex and he has a daughter who is Billy's goddaughter. Todd is not amused and he thinks there's more to Drew than meets the eye.

Adam is still in police custody and they won't even give him access to hair products. Steve gets served with divorce papers. Toyah is peeved by Peter's snogging adventures with Chloe and his reluctance to continue IVF until things calm down. There was a quiz night at the pub and Brian let Cathy win. Romance is is the air.

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

Tracy to Rob:
"Wrecking people's lives is harder than you think"
(fortunately she practices a lot)

Tracy to Rob:
"I've had a taste of life without you and it's only half a life"
(like radioactive waste)

Tracy to Rob re: Amy:
"The last thing I want is her growing up like me"
(I think we can all agree on that)

Amy to Tracy:
"I hate Granddad" 
(oh oh, maybe she is growing up like Tracy)

Amy to Tracy re: a mini break:
"Coolio Iglesias"
(that's what all the kids are saying)

Rob to Tracy:
"I'm sorry I ruined everything"
(apology accepted)


Well denizens of downtown Weatherfield, so ends another week. Thanks so much for stopping by and have a great week.
