Wow, I agree with Flaming Nora's earlier sentiments: this was one H.E. double-hockey-sticks of an episode!
Molly and Tyrone are happily bathing topless on holiday, much to Kevin's chagrin. If anyone cares.
Kevin forces Chesney to apologise for taking Rosie's car, which he does. Chesney also finds out that Fiz had taken the rap for him. He is still unwilling to forgive her over John Stape, however. Chesney is keeping Gary's bed warm at No. 6 after Anna offers to let Chesney stay with them, pending he work on his relationship with Fiz, else he turn out like her Gary.
Rosie is insanely jealous over Luke and Michelle, and rightfully so. Luke seems to enjoy having two birds fight over him because he's stringing Rosie along while courting Michelle at the same time. It all ends in Rosie and Michelle getting into a cat-fight, with Michelle winning.
Michelle's not done fighting though. Tony brusquely informs her that she, and her baggage (Ryan?), best soon get out of Maria's place. Michelle's not having Tony's "good samaritan" routine and puts him in his place where Baby Liam's concerned. If I were Michelle, I'd start watching my back.
Joe goes completely nutters and breaks into the Medical Centre with Gail's keys. He brings with him his crowbar and sledgehammer for some alarm-system smashing and general trashing. Gail figures out that he's taken her keys, and he must be the one in the building. Gail's heart breaks when she finds him in there, a mess. All and sundry watch as Joe is being dragged out in cuffs by the police. David tries to cover his tracks by telling Audrey lies about him knowing about Joe's drug habit and how he tried to "help" Joe. Pointless. Tina, Jason and Gail wait for Joe's release on bail at the prison. They take Joe home and Tina and Joe have a tender emotional moment when Joe tells Tina he's sorry, and Tina forgives him.
In good news, Jason and Tina won No.12 in the auction, but went a wee bit over their intended budget.
- Sophie teasing her mum about being "impressionable" after Sally buys sushi for her lunch, since that's what Luke eats.
- Tony referring to Coronation Street, as "Village of the Damned."
- Graeme telling Rosie he's around if she's ever hard-up for company. (Any scene with Graeme!) - Luke comparing Rosie's company to that of a dead crustacean.
- Michelle telling Rosie that everyone's got her on tap, and she should have her own pump at the Rover's! *zing!*
- Pam telling Bill to look for Sean in the mens room, and Bill responding, "I'm not checkin' toilets for bar-men."
- How sweet Anna Windass is, and how much the Windasses are growing on me.
- Gail asking her mum if she thinks she's a mug. Audrey responding that all Gail was missing was a handle. In more ways than one I'd say!
- Watching Gail's heart break and her face age about 10 years from beginning to end of this episode.
- Little-boy Luke hiding from little-girl Rosie with the big-bad-milf.
- Luke thinking he's the hot-potato because two dim-witted slappers are fighting over him.
- Tony's on-going posessiveness over Maria's life.
- How depressing it was to watch Joe in that state. The sweat on his forehead kept making my eyes water.
- David's lame attempts to save his over-tanned skin in all the Joe drama.
