Update - November 22nd, 2007 - What a Blast!


In the Peacock’s back garden, Chesney, Kirk, Tyrone are determined to find their fortune. In the inquisitive hands of Chesney the metal detector indicates a strong signal deep in the ground. Eileen who is babysitting Holly and Co., is annoyed by the digging and asks what is going on. She looks for further at their new find and is horrified at what she sees. She quickly realizes the large metal object is an old bomb left over from the war. A panic stricken Eileen calls the authorities and the whole street rushes to see what all the fuss is about. All havoc breaks loose, as the army and a bomb disposal unit arrive shut down the Street. The units start to go door to door to evacuate everyone from houses and shops to send them to Weatherfield Community Centre. As the pub is being cleared out Liz starts to worry as a clueless Vernon is no where to be found. Jack asks if she has looked in the cellar, but she says she called down there without any answer. Jack takes his pint and heads out with the contingent.

Sean is talking to Jamie and is still stressed about the situation with Sonny. Jamie presuming Sean is about to end things with Sonny, gives him the keys his place to invite Sonny over for some private time. After taking Sonny's phone number from Michelle in the street, Sean invites him over and lets him into the house through the back door. By the time they reach the front room Sonny is already working his charm on Sean. Sonny has much more in mind than finishing the scandalous affair. He leads Sean (didn’t you just love his belt?) upstairs into Jamie's bedroom (which gets more action than any bedroom on the Street) after a bit of a romp the phone rings. It is Jamie wondering about his whereabouts. Sean lies and tells him he is at the Trafford Centre. After discovering the Street is being evacuated, Sonny panics wondering how is going to get out of the house without being seen.

David is intent on Tracey (attractive mask?!) fulfilling her side of the bargain, arrives at her house. He has carried out his part of the deal by agreeing to testify, and now it's time for Tracey to carry out hers. David is deadly serious and knowing this Tracy agrees to sleep with him, but only after the trial. David agrees to the deal but makes it perfectly clear to Tracy that he needs much more than just a kiss. The sudden arrival at the door of a soldier saves the day for Tracey. Phew, saved by the visuals...

Can someone fill me in? There were some references to Steve having done some time in prison...when was this? What did he do?

Steve did time many years ago for smuggling whisky into the country.

I just realized that I've been to the Trafford Centre - go figure.

Hey Kunzie,

on't think of this comment as a shameless bit of self-promotion but take a look at this post: http://corriestreet.blogspot.com/2007/10/is-this-face-of-hardened-criminal.html

In it I talk about Steve's time in the clink.

Debbie said...

And, he went to jail for the perversion of justice in relation to the whisky smuggling.

Cheers Debbie! (I have been reading for a while, but must've missed this detailed note). Shamelessness much appreciated ;-).

My Gawd the bomb squad responds quickly in Weatherfield!

I was kind of hoping the bomb would go off at the appropriate moment in the Sean/Sonny liason so they could really feel the earth shake. I wonder how thrilled Jamie will be to find that his best gay friend got it on with the local cad in his bed? Somebody needs to give Sean a good shake. There's heartbreak written all over his story line.

kunzie said...

It is SO not ok for Sean to use Jamie's bed for his dalliance with Sunny. Couch if you must, but a friend's actual bed...yeesh...

Logistics aside, Sean has just done to Michelle one of the worst things you can possibly do to a friend. Nice one.

And in spite of all this, I still feel bad for him. Everyone that pointed out that Sean is "in love with love" was absolutely right. He should run as fast as he can - Sunny's utter coldness is jarring.

I think Sonny is killing two birds with one stone here. He needs Sean to keep quiet about his gay past, and he wants to have gay sex while maintaining a relationship with Michelle. Soooo, have sex with Sean and he'll keep quiet so his relationship with Sonny can continue.

Kunzie, right on, I completely agree with all of your comments.
