CORONATION STREET WEEKLY UPDATES
The big story this week has fans divided and down the country with some on Team Tina and some not. Tina’s only gone and said she wants to keep the baby “I can’t hand him over! I’m his mother!” - which upsets Izzy and Gary, as you’d expect. Izzy sees a solicitor but it’s not good news as a surrogate mother has a legal right to change her mind and besides which, there was no agreement, no contract between them. Owen chucks Tina out of the flat and she moves in with Tommy at Rita’s. Tommy and Rita are on Tina’s side, at first it seems, but doubts soon bubble up about her decision to keep the baby that she’s renamed Joe, after her dad.
There was a lovely comic scene this week when Tracy tells Rob she’s got herself a new job in marketing. Now then, hang on, let’s rewind just a bit. Tracy Barlow must really be into Rob because she would never, ever, voluntarily go out and herself work unless she was trying to impress. Surely it can’t be long now before she moves in with Rob, does a sexy dance in a short skirt with an ornament in her hand? Anyway, so Tracy’s got this new job in marketing, which is really cold-calling, trying to flog bathroom suites over the phone. Deirdre, Peter and Carla don’t take her seriously and she’s forced to hide in Amy’s little-girl bedroom to ring up the punters.
There was a bit of a contrived storyline this week with Paul the fireman getting a knock on the door from little Paddy, a kid whose life Paul has saved, along with little Paddy’s family and a journalist that little Paddy’s family has rang with a story about a hero firefighter. This just wouldn’t happen, would it, not at his home? Whatever, Eileen’s already beside herself with worry over what Paul gets up to when he’s out at work so this does nowt for her worry-o-meter and she finally agrees to take up the offer of counselling for firefighter’s families.
Desperate Dev continues his quest to clear Sunita’s
name in setting the Rovers Return ablaze. When Sunita was admitted
to hospital, they took an inventory of her belongings she went in there
with and Dev tears the house apart looking for this list, sure that
they’ll be no keys on the inventory, proving that someone planted the
Rovers keys on her. I was sure too and more than a bit surprised
that a set of keys was on the list. He’s down but not out, and
presses on in a mac like a demented detective, a Corrie
Colombo. Karl’s getting scared that Dev’s too near the truth
so nips down the ginnel wearing a pair of gloves, intent on doing away
with Dev, but in the end he just can’t. Dev gets to live another day but
for now, he tells the kids, he’s stopping the search for the truth about
Sunita. Meanwhile, young Craig continues to look shifty every time
he sees Karl. He knows summat, that Craig.
And that’s about that for this week.
