State of the Street - September 2009

Yay! Becky's off the hook thanks to 007.5, Lloyd! He found Slug and they all managed to convince him to tell the truth. I hope Liz gets to eat a very large portion of crow now she's been proven wrong. Everyone else, too, but Liz was the most vocal. She was the one that put the knife in over and over and made Becky decide to do a runner. Luckily, Steve caught her in time and talked her down. Beautiful little scene with Becky explaining things to Amy. It was odd after all that venom that Liz seemed to do an abrupt about face and now seems to think the world of Becky. Maybe it was because of the way Becky was with Amy that morning? I expect we won't see much of Steve and Becky now for a bit, with Carla back on the cobbles and the Tony storyline ramping up.

Next was Hooch letting Becky off. His explanation to Steve really was rather lame. It almost sounded like he was letting Steve off because Becky was bad news and she'd drag Steve down with her anyway. He really did have her bang to rights and could have decimated Slug on the witness stand but maybe his reputation within the department was still just a little too shaky to withstand the accusations anyway? They would be aware that he'sgot it in for Becky, after all. They wrapped that up a bit too quickly and too off-screen for my taste.

Claire and Ashley spent a few days sniping. Or rather, Claire did the sniping and Ashley spent it sucking up and then she cut off the rumpeh pumpeh. She can be a right cow, can't she? He's a coward. That's all it was, the only reason he didn't go through with the op. No second thoughts, no thinking of the future, not really. Claire had no business airing their dirty laundry in front of their neighbours at the dinner party. Yes, i know, she's terrified of being pregnant and has had enough of hospitals but if she's that adamant, an out patient surgery for her is always an option.

Kevin. Molly. Bleurgh. Are we going to have to go through months of them almost getting caught? I want Tyrone to find out and throw her out on her runner's buns. I don't want Sally to find out because Sally will be insufferable no matter how much Kevin deserves to pay. Oh wait, yes i do want Sally to find out so that Kevin can throw her affairs back at her! Molly is certainly coming over all pushy and demanding of Kevin's time, too, right off the post! That attitude is going to land her in it well and truly.

Maria and Tony were keeping an awfully low profile. Amber had the shortest university career on record. I love that Eileen has another new storyline. The business with her father was great, showcasing Sue Cleaver's dramatic talent and Jesse and the bird are showcasing her comedic talent. I also love the relationship between Blanche and Peter. Peter's having a few problems though. Dead rabbits and egg on his face, quite literally.

Some really funny stuff this month too. Technically Blanche's fortune telling was the last day of August but it was just too funny not to mention. The HiyaLowa auditions were really funny too, with the bird skwawking, and Sean and Eileen peeing themselves laughing. Incomprehensible moment of the month has to be Teresa and the tin of Spam. Does anyone know what that was about? I also laughed and cheered when Luke dumped Rosie in the pub with Sean, Janice and Kelly earwigging! Of course there was Mr. Gay Weatherfield himself, Jason Grimshaw!

Ramsay's storyline came to an end and unfortunately it leaves Emily bereft, having found love late in life yet never had the courage to tell him. Regrets. And Norris has had a few, too. It really threw him more than he realized. He pushed Ramsay away and didn't want to know but now that his brother is gone, he realizes just how much Ramsay got under his skin in the end. Lovely scene when Norris went through the trunk of Ramsay's belongings and finally admitted how he really felt. But it must have really ticked off Emily that he finally thought he should have been nicer to Ramsay which would have kept him in Weatherfield but it was too late. Ramsay's money looks to be invested in buying out Rita's share of the Kabin in yet another faster-than-light estate settling and real estate transaction. She wants to retire, or so she says but i have a feeling she's going to be behind that counter like Betty is behind the bar, till the end of her days. She'll sell up but I figure she'll be back part time.

Poor Simon lost his rabbit and Peter knows it's more about his mother's death than the rabbit's. I would have liked to have heard Peter talk about losing his own mother at much the same age but he was really good with the little lad. Leanne's back, too, and after a rocky start, they seem to be making a go of it. Problem with Peter is he really is a compulsive liar though doesn't do it to be mean. Michelle is back too, just to throw a monkey wrench into the mix. I really think that Leanne and Peter make a very good couple if they can manage to make a go of it. And how absolutely wonderful is Blanche? She's got an over abundance of chemistry with Simon and with Peter, she's like their real Gran, a fairy grandmother. She can be caustic and mean but when it really comes down to it, she's there and she tells them what they need to hear and she's the reason Leanne decided to stay and give it another go with Peter. We'll see how it goes.

And as annoying as Rosie has been this month? Don't worry. She's going to get her comeuppance. Soon. I can hardly wait!
