Written by Joe Turner, directed by Tony Prescott.
Oh, happy day! I just love Corrie weddings and I've been looking forward to this one for quite a while now.
Slug meets with DC Hooch and tells him he's willing to send Becky down. DC Hooch gives him an envelope full of drugs and money. Slug sneaks into the Rovers and plants the envelope in Becky's purse. DC Hooch later gives Slug his payment and tells him to leg it out of town. Does this mean we never have to see him again?
Andy has made it for Steve's wedding! Liz and Andy surprise Steve. Lloyd is also surprised to find Liz and to find that he's a newly single man. Steve, and everyone, are surprised yet again to find that Jim has arrived at the wedding, since Becky had invited him.
Steve and Becky are proclaimed husband and wife, finally. Steve carries her over the threshold at the Rovers where all are waiting for them. Becky announces that she's taking Steve to the Greek Islands for a honeymoon. At that moment, a drug squad enters the Rovers with a warrant to search the place. They find the planted drugs in Becky's purse and arrest her on suspicion of drug-dealing. Becky protests her innocence, but Steve (and everyone else) doesn't believe her. Steve stands by her and goes down to the police station where it's clear to him that Becky has been setup by DC Hooch. Becky sobs tears of betrayal in her wedding dress, in her lonely cell, on what should have been the most perfect day of her life. Oh, perfection's overrated any how.
Eddie is able to pull off a gorgeous wedding cake that survived a near-death after almost colliding with Fiz and Kelly on a scooter. Only for it to be destroyed by the drug squad. Eddie leaves with his destroyed cake in a tiff. A plus for effort, though.
In other news, Michelle apologizes to Maria about how she reacted to Maria and Tony's news. Michelle helps Maria call Liam's parents and tell them about "the news." Later, Maria asks Tony to move in with her. That's a little soon!
- Steve doing a little jig(gle) with his not-so-torso-of-the-month, on the morning before his wedding to "I'm a Love Man," by Otis Redding.
- Steve so happy that Becky had managed to get his family all there for his wedding. Touching.
- Roy's touching moment with Becky when he tells her that on his wedding day to Hayley he thought he was dying because he was so nervous. He thought he was dying on the best day of his life. He was fine, though. Just nerves.
- Becky getting dragged down the aisle proclaiming "I love him when he's gaggin' for it!" Pure class.
- Steve so thrilled at Becky getting them a luxury honeymoon in Greece that he "fake motorboats" her chest at his reception.
- Jim pointing out to Liz that he can't understand why Lloyd can't just "get the picture" that Liz isn't interested in him anymore. The irony.
- Steve standing by his woman!
- Slug betraying Becky to DC Hooch. Scum, the lot of them!
- Liz's outfit at the wedding! What was she thinking?
- Becky's whole show-girl wedding ensemble! What was she thinking? Oh well, it was entertaining.
- Eddie's cake getting destroyed by the darned drug squad! Poor Eddie!
- Maria asking Tony to move in. It's too soon!
- Becky covering her ears with her hands and wailing "make it stop, make it stop, make it stop" when they arrest her. My heart broke for her, I really wanted to be able to make it stop.
- Becky spending her wedding night in jail, a heavily mascaraed tear running down her cheek.
