Update for Jan 31... SERIOUS SPOILERS
Before I go any further, I would like to say, 'All HAIL Queen Lena! My new Weatherfield Goddess.'
Seriously. I don't worry so much about turning 40 as I do about turning 70. But Lena shows us how to be the party girl at 80. God bless her. It's like the second coming of Bet.
BIG thanks to MJ for supplying the Lena pic.
Rita, Blanche and Lena have decided to go to the Weatherfield Arms and try out the speed dating. (I SOOOOOOOOOOOO love this show.)
When Rita asks if they are perhaps a little too long in the tooth for such activities, Lean pops up, 'Speak for yourself!' She also goes on about how some men love the company of a more mature woman.
(Jacqueline gets down on her knees and prays that she too can one day be an 80 year old cougar.)
Doris declines the offer, but the grey trio seems up for it. YOU GO GIRLS!!!
Maria and Tyrone have the Duckworths' place to their selves as Jack and Vera go on holiday. They are taking full advantage of the time playing house.
Jamie and Leanne have made up and we see them getting frisky back her flat. I have two questions. Does Janice even live there anymore? How does Leanne have the strength to even walk at this point? I mean between Baldwin Sr and Baldwin Jr...(okay..that was rude...my apologies.)
Sarah managed to get her job back from Dev after a lot of pleading and explaining that Diggory is 'creepy'. Dev took her back on a trial month basis.
We're All Going on a Summer Holiday
Jack and Vera went on holidays to a ....trailer park? WTH? Is that really something people do?
I mean, I'm not trying to sound snotty cause lord knows our holidays out west consisted of driving to Trail and back... but it seems like a bit of a lunch bag let down.
Anyway, Jack brought the pigeons with him to release. Vera asked how they would find their way home. Ummmm .... why does no one GET the purpose of homing pigeons.
Well, Charlie brought the chesterfield upstairs to Shel's room so he could lie on it and 'keep an eye on her'. Yeah. Sanity!
The Big Screaming Spoiler
Cilla brought Schmicheal (screw the spelling right now) to Mr. Wong's chip shop so that customers would feel sorry for him and feed him.
Soon enough Mr. Wong told her to get rid of the dog and I assumed she secured him back home. But the truth is, he was out loose on the street and when Chesney came to collect him, the dang dog was nowhere to be found.
Eventually, we see Schmicheal in Diggory's shop chowing down on some pastry. Just as Diggory is tossing him, Chesney comes to rescue him.
Brace yourselves folks.
At that very moment, Claire is driving the bus down the street as Ashley and Josh are waiting for her.
Josh runs out into the street, but luckily Ashley gets him out of the way as Claire slams on the break. So Josh is okay.
However, there was a thump as she slammed on the breaks.
And on the other side of the bus... we see Chesney hovering over Schmicheal who was hit by the bus.
