Coronation Street Catch Up: the naming ceremony edition

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

What's in a naming ceremony?

That which we call a "cock-up", by any other name, would be as screwy. Looks like Nick's passive aggressive idea for an event to mark the proper noun assigned to Leanne's baby goes sideways when Nicko is a no-show, preferring to drown his sorrows in alcohol.

Ah Platts! Any other brilliant schemes? Well, yes, Gail decides to bribe Shona into leaving Weatherfield for the princely sum of 400 pounds. Are you kidding?  That's just about enough to get to the Red Rec. Gail figures that it's safer to have Shona out of the way lest Davey discover that Shona is Clayton's Mom. Doesn't work though. Shona is staying put.

Good news on the Barlow front, I guess. Tracy has the money to buy her flower shop (thanks to Ken) which means that Peter gets the money he needs to buy the pub. On top of that the Battersby Sister Act (Leanne & Toyah) takes on Chloe and they convince her to withdraw her assault charges against Peter. All's well that ends well except for the fact that Toyah didn't tell Peter that she went ahead with the IVF. Opps.

Rosie and Adam are trying to link Daniel to the Ken-staircase-pushing incident so far with no success.

Kate thinks that Johnny is having an affair because of his mysterious behaviour. Jenny keeps steaming ahead with wedding plans. Billy and Todd are having issues because Todd doesn't want to adopt Billy's godchild.

As a way to connect with Bethany, Sarah invites her daughter to a wedding fair. Bethany cancels and when Sarah goes to the tanning salon to find out why, she finds Bethany drunk and passed out.

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

Gail offers Shona 400 pounds to leave town:
"It'll buy you a ticket somewhere"
(Tile Street?)

Nick to David re: Steve
"He's clever, crafty"
(are we talking about the same Steve?")

Tracy to Peter re: Rob:
"I didn't come here to play who killed who"
(who killed whom, actually)

Leanne and Toyah won't leave Chloe's house:
"We're not going anywhere till we find out what's going on in that sick head of yours"
(that could take a while)

Mary is concerned by Tracy's yelp:
"Is it your Moroccan kidney?"
(No and it's not her British pancreas either)

Sarah is miffed because Bethany cancels their date due to a work emergency:
"What kind of emergency do you get at a tanning salon?"
(a power outage?)

Audrey compares the ministry to being a stylist:
"I suppose you're like God's hairdresser"
(a shave would require a heavenly lather)

Fiz explains goat cheese to Kirk:
"All mammals express milk"
(Sounds like Kirkie is lactose intolerant)

Well, faithful followers, so ends another week and the Barlow mystery remains unsolved, Rob's back behind bars and Nick oscillates between hating Steve and hating Peter. Thanks for stopping by and have a great week. Cheers!
