A Very Special Valentine's Day Update
Tracey takes an apology card over to Charile’s and does some groveling. He (quite correctly) reminds her that it was bad form to leave Amy with him because she doesn’t know him and that he wouldn’t have known what to do if anything went wrong.
Tracey weasels her way back into his heart and he invites her to move back in…sans enfant.
Hands up who thinks she’s going to dump Amy on Ken and Deidre and move in with Charlie.
Norris is on the phone non-stop back at the shop and when Rita and Deidre push him to tell who he’s calling, he finally lets them know the Ed story.
Rita is furious that he left Emily on her own and she marches over with Deidre in tow. They comfort Emily and AGAIN I say kudos to the writers for this bit, they really do a great job of capturing the grieif and anger Emily has been feeling over the years.
Rita and Deidre try to comfort her as best they can, and I’m a bit surprised that Deidre didn’t have more to say as she lost her husband to violence too.
Back at the Rovers, Sean convinces Eileen to go over to Emily’s to find out what happened to Ed. Emily sits her down and tells her that Ed was the man responsible for killing Ernest. Eileen is shocked and wonders if there’s been some kind of mistake. Emily assures her that there’s been no mistake.
Pretty in Pink
I know I usually hard on Claire, but I have to say she look very, very pretty yesterday in pink…all valentine day-like. She is pleased to have received two valentine cards in the mail and while she knows that one is from Ashley, she can’t figure out who the second one is from.
Back at the streetcars, Steve is teasing her and inadvertently gives the impression that he is the admirerer, this is reinforced when he puts his hands on her shoulders in the café. (Or as she likes to call it, the molestation.) This upsets her enough that she resigns.
Later in the Rovers, Ashley tells her that he sent both cards and Betty says that he takes after Fred and likes to repeat himself. (ha ha). With that settled, Steve offers her job back, even though he wasn’t the one who took it away from her.
Also, apparently Betty’s been molested in cafeterias back in the day!!!
Yeah, Well, the Canadian Pacific Railway Don’t Like You Either, Buddy.
Clifford, is a jerk. Seriously, he’s becoming my least favorite character on the show.
He hauls all his stupid little box ‘o trains into the café and plonks them down on the counter. When Haley complains about the Canadian Pacific Railway getting in the way of their business, he kind of hisses at her and tells her not to call it the CPR.
And Roy, you’re in my bad books too for not telling Clifford to speak to Haley with more respect and for inviting this knob to spend the evening with you on VALENTINES DAY.
Richard, the Serial Killer Who Keeps on Giving
Gayle also received two cards in the post, one from Dr. Phil aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaand one from Richard Hillman.
This sends everyone in a tizzy, except for Gayle who decides to ignore it. Audrey is suspicious that Dr. Phil is the culprit behind all this.
And on that note, here are the results of our ‘Who’s Been Sending the Hillman Letters’ poll. David is clearly in the lead.
