Coronation Street Catch Up: the Winter Olympics edition

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

Am I crazy or was that Kevin and Tyrone on the two-man luge in PyeongChang?  (and I'm pretty sure I saw Pat Phelan in the biathlon with a rifle). But I digress.

In summary, last week Rana came out, Carla passed out and Gemma was taken out.

Zeedan is shocked and angry by Rana's revelation. Rana's parents are also shocked and Rana's Dad (who wants to protect his family's name) offers Zee financial support to launch his restaurant in exchange for Zee and Rana agreeing to maintaining a fake marriage for a year. Zee agrees and Rana tearfully accepts.

Carla and Daniel get together for some RLA (Recreational Legover Activity) much to the chagrin of Peter, the disgust of Beth and the amusement of everyone else.

Aidan and Kate are getting tested for a possible kidney match for Carla who has already passed out once (hint: never do a downward dog in the Bistro).

Gina is not well and gets arrested for shoplifting fish fingers. Dev is determined to take care of her.

Chesney discovers that Henry's interest in Gemma is a ploy to win a nasty bet with a slimeball named Hugo. Ches tells Gemma who promptly places a variety of a la carte dishes on Henry's head.

Training for the upcoming boxing match continues with the new garage guy giving lessons to Ty and David.

And now for a few lines from last week:

Carla tells Peter what she was doing at Daniel's flat:
"I was reading The Golden Bough"
(it's customary foreplay for intellectuals)

Carla pops over to Daniel's flat:
"I haven't come to jump your bones"
(just to finish reading The Golden Bough)

Zeedan to Rana:
"I've lost everything"
{Rana hasn't exactly won the lottery either, you know)

Chesney to Hugo's date:
"You've got a very low opinion of men and yourself"
(what do you expect when Hugo is her benchmark?)

Tracy to Carla:
"I heard you were cougaring my brother's brains out"
(I didn't realize that "cougaring" was a verb)

Well, fellow Olympic Athletes from Weatherfield, so ends another week. Thanks for stopping by and have a great week.
