OFF TOPIC
Safeway is changing a lot of stores to Freshco. Anyone know if they are Corrie Street fans? The store staff don't know where the name came from.

Jim,Evelyn did attempt to play matchmaker with Jade and Michael[ to no avail]when she thought Jade was interested in Tyrone so maybe Jade will start dating Michael as an excuse to stay on the Street and keep a eye on Hope?
I like your idea of Aggie getting involved as she was annoyed when Jade turned down her offer of help,maybe Aggie and Evelyn could team up and expose Jade?

I may in the minority in thinking but I'm really warming up to Aggie Bailey.She's been a good friend to Roy throughout his worries with his brother even offering to work extra shifts [when no one else would I may add]so he could spend more time with his brother Richard.
I' m beginning to think I would rather see more storylines centered around the Baileys rather than Michelle's latest revenge plot, pschyo Jade or Gary.The Baileys seem like a normal happy family in comparison.

Carolyn Today at 21:33
But if a family is too normal, with no oomph, then they become boring. Obviously all the arrests, suicides, murders, etc. are unrealistic on a small street but it is rarely dull. I look at it as a microcosm of life in general. Sometimes they go too far (the quads) but I realize its a soap and that's what soaps do - lots of poopy happenings.

Jeannie, of course you are right! I didnt pick up on that roll eyes (sarcastic) the first time that Jade is going to lay the groundwork to make authorities suspicious of Fiz. I missed it completely that it wasn't about making sure the kids cut was clean, that it was about bringing her to the hospital, and pouring poison in the doctors ear. I guess I wasnt paying too much attention roll eyes (sarcastic)

If Aggie is a nurse she could had been the one treating Hope's wound and become suspicious of Jade which would get more character involvement in this story...it would also be interesting had Aggie been the nurse who delivered Jade years ago...then we could have Jade going after Aggie too...maybe getting involved with one of her son's ect to get closer to the Baileys and causing them problems!!!...more character involvement is needed in some of these stories...and isnt Michelle's son a doctor...Aggie could be his nurse who works with him and she tells him all her troubles-this would add more character involvemnet!!!

I know I'm likely in the minority but I do enjoy our Moira!
She plays the officious entitled, employee to perfection.

Thanks again for getting those snipped scenes for us, Chris If it weren't for you we wouldn't have got that glimpse of Moira.

And I agree with Alexandra. Jade knew exactly what she was doing. The whole point of the doctor visit was to begin a campaign to create suspicions of Fiz, and make people think she was abusing Hope.

Hey Jude Today at 17:00
Jeannie I can tolerate Moira much more than Mary! Mary acts like a 14 year old half the time

Louise Today at 17:10
I enjoy Moira, she's one of a kind. I remember when she said people are always telling her she looks just like Julianne Moore! lol
But then I like Mary too, most of the time. Except when they overdo her schtick.

haili Today at 19:04
I can't stand Moira but Mary can be quite funny at times, especially in the shop with Tracy and her remarks about Christmas and halloween ads gave me a good laugh because they are so true. Evelyn has grown on me too and the actress is great with the one liners.

It's about time Tracy and Leanne came back; we haven't seen much of them lately.

Chris 28 minutes ago
You're welcome, Jeannie. Thanks to Bradley for uploading the snipped scenes to YouTube.

Beachy Carol, I dont understand why Aggie keeps saying she used to be a nurse when she was introduced as being a pharmacists assistant, and why isnt she still a nurse now? Did they change their minds on what her occupation should be? Its very strange

Alexandra Today at 15:29
Hey Jude, Aggie may have been working as a pharmacist's assistant when (or just prior to when) she appeared on the street, but may have been a nurse in the past. There may be a story behind that. A nurse who is no longer able to work in her profession may find employment as a pharmacist's assistant. It's more likely than a person who can't cook being hired to work in a cafe wink .

Hey Jude Today at 15:45
Alexandra, yes I can see all of that as well. Hopefully thrre is a back story behind her occupation. She would def earn more money being an RN or pharmacist assistant. They need a drug store on that street!

Beachy Carol Today at 19:20
It’s been driving me a bit crazy actually, Hey Jude. I know there have been at least 3 mentions of Aggie having been a nurse. I do hope we get her back story some time because surely she could get a job at the hospital if not the walk in clinic. Wouldn’t it be interesting if she never was in fact a nurse but treated people regardless?? That could explain why she isn’t even working at a pharmacy now. Jim, I love your vision and imagination and now you have me being creative, lol.

I know there is a fan website that is like Wiki that does a bio of each character and on that they list Aggie as a Pharmacists Asst so that is probably what’s in our minds.

Beachy Carol Today at 19:45
And so sorry, Alexandra, I meant to include your name in this thread. It all does make Aggie a potentially more interesting character.

Hey Jude Today at 20:00
Good one Beachy! I didn't even think of that about Aggie. It would be very interesting indeed! Yes, Jim def has quite the imagination!

I don't know. If she's really diabolical she could put some liquid on the cut with some putrid stuff containing dangerous bacteria causing a bad infection that could really be dangerous. I'VE KNOWN SOME PEOPLE THAT GOT SUCH INFECTIONS WITHOUT EVEN TRYING THESE DAYS. Sorry, I worry when people don't clean off a cut, etc. with soapy water in case of these things.

blitzen Today at 14:59
Nobody is suggesting she shouldn't have cleaned the cut properly with soap & water and then some polysporin or iodine (do people still use iodine?), just that hauling her down to the hospital was an overreaction. That said, some years ago I got a tiny scratch on my knee from falling off my bike that turned into a full-blown staph infection that inflamed my whole leg and was incredibly painful. I had to have intravenous antibiotics every day for 5 weeks to get rid of it (daily home visits from a nurse, all supplies & meedication included, cost me NOTHING, thank you Canadian healthcare system!). But that was because I didn't clean the cut right away--it was the smallest thing, didn't even really bleed--but something got in there.

Hey Jude Today at 15:53
Blitzen, I agree, it was overkill making a big deal out of that cut. I think Jade would have cleaned the cut. With me a mosquito caused an infection on my shin. My doctor had to put a needle to the bone to clear it up fast. Said I was brave! Lol

Dianne W. 32 minutes ago
Recalling that Kevin's son Jack scraped his leg, Sophie did not seek medical treatment, and he developed sepsis, resulting in the foot amputation.

Jeannie 3 minutes ago
A needle to the bone - that had to hurt.
You were brave Hey Jude!

Whoever the actress is, I'm not best impressed --> I'm finding Jade less and less tolerable all the time Hope does a better job at smug and cunning), which is completely at odds with my love of Evelyn. Makes for a weird version of ffing and slowing down while watching scenes involving both. I see those of us who felt Evelyn was on to "The Hand that Rocks the Cradle" were not fantasizing. Fiz had better be apologetic when she realizes that Evelyn has been looking out for her.

What a big freaking fuss about cutting your finger on some glass. Good gawd.

I adore Roy, but I do like that his unrealistic way of dealing with life is having awkward consequences, because it would.

Hey Jude Today at 05:12
Nancy, top right about the cut finger. Good grief! roll eyes (sarcastic)

Gayle Today at 14:16
Nancy, well said! I could not agree more with all of your comments! What a production over a cut finger!
I find Jade incredibly annoying and unfortunately Fizz is also getting on my nerves. The sooner Jade leaves the better.

Lynn Today at 15:07
I am not watching any of the scenes with Fiz/Jade/Hope. I cannot stand Fiz and wish that she would just go away. I enjoyed the Ty/Ruby/Evelyn stories much more when the actress was on leave. I wish that Fiz and Hope would be sent away for good.

I think that Tyrone is a dolt on his best days and Fiz is no better so listening to them have a conversation is like listening to nails on a chalkboard to me.


Roy used to be a sensitive soul. When did he become a pushy "I know best" take over a situations kind of guy? A new writer must be writing the role or something. I must have missed something because this is not the Roy we have known,IMHO.

Alexandra Today at 15:21
I think the big production over the cut finger was an excuse for Jade to suggest to interact with a doctor in order to suggest that she was worried that Hope was being abused. She hasn't shown the pictures with the fake bruises to anyone yet, but she may be laying the groundwork for showing them to the doctor.

As for Roy, am I correct in thinking that Roy was raised as an only child? If that is the case, he does not have experience of interacting with siblings. Having found that he has a brother (whom he likes) and that brother is dying, Roy probably feels compelled to do whatever he can to help him, without realising the complexities of the situation and that he may be doing harm. I think his actions come from concern and trying to do the right thing, rather than arrogance. Just my humble opinion.

Lynn Today at 16:09
Alexandra,

Exactly. I caught about 20 seconds of Jade and Hope at a clinic or something...and yup, it is a the beginning of a set up.

RE: Hope and her parents: Why would you not spend a bit of cash on a nanny cam or two and hide them in the house to keep watch on the goings on in the house. When you have a troubled child with an interest in fire and matches it would seem prudent to use the technology available to watch her behavior. I am sure skipping a few visits to the pub and meals at Roy's would more than pay for the cameras. confused

Jeannie Today at 16:10
Alexandra, as far as I know Roy was raised as an only child but as we've seen in the past relatives can be created, so nothing is for absolute sure. smile

As to Roy's behaviour, I think it rings true if we remember how he was when Hayley was dying. He had definite opinions on the route she took and his usual sensitivity took a back seat to the point where I think, not sure I'm remembering correctly, but I think he was going to give the funeral a miss. Correct me if I'm wrong.

Anyway, what I'm trying to say is Roy, like all of us, has definite characteristics that make him who he is, but stress such as he is going through can shape those characteristics and bring out a different side.

Alice: to add to your reply below...

Richard Lucas should get a lawyer to fill in the forms
to appoint Nina as his power of attorney for health and finance
so Roy can't interfere and meddle in important decisions.

Roy did more damage than reducing the services.
By getting rid of the nurse, Nina lost a support-friend.
Her friends her age can't understand what it's like to be
a caretaker for her father.

Also with his meddling causing Nina to go back to College
she's losing a chance to be with her father and feeling useful
which will help her with her grieving later.

Chris Today at 02:32
I don't think Nina is the legal age to act as a Power of Attorney for her father.

Beachy Carol Today at 02:43
Although Roy means well I do agree what he has done will only add to Jade’s grief when that time comes :( She surely will feel resentment toward Roy and a deeper loss not having spent every possible moment with her dad. Very sad.

Mark Today at 03:11
I agree Beachy Carol. Jade is 17 and her father has at most 1 year to live.
She won't be able to concentrate on her studies knowing he's sick and can die while she's at College.
Once he's dead and she greived a bit, College will help her move on but now is not the time.
I hate "know it all Roy" always meddling and ruining people's lives. He drove Carla to madness.

Chris Today at 03:37
Richard's daughter and Roy's niece is Nina.

Jade is the nut-bar au pair employed by Fiz and Tyrone to look after Hope. She is somehow related to John Stape.

Mark Today at 04:12
Thanks for spotting that Chris smile

I agree Beachy Carol.

Just a quick thought about the revelation that Jade is John Stape's "daughter".

Are we absolutely certain that John Stape had children, before Hope? John was a teacher, right? Could Jade actually be one of his past students who loved being teacher's pet and has grown an unhealthy admiration for him and is now avenging his death. I mean wouldn't Fiz have been aware of John's other children if he had any especially that old

Just a thought.

Beachy Carol Today at 02:35
Trying to do the math and John would have been young fathering Jade! You make good points, Philip. One would think Fiz would be aware if John had any children prior to Hope but then you take the case of Steve/Fiona/Emma and suddenly it’s possible even John did not know he had had a child. The idea that Jade could be an obsessed ex-student makes it even more chilling! But she is very focussed on Hope.....hmm, could be part of a delusion. Either way the actress is playing it well.

Mark Today at 02:36
John Stape was born in Nov 1978 and died in Oct 2011 at 33
Say Jade is 25, she'd have to have been born in 1994.
when John was 16.
If she's 20, she'd been born in 1999 and John would have been 21.
So it is possible.

Monique Today at 13:05
It was never mentioned that John Stape had a child before Hope. So either he did not know or he never really knew her, so it's far fetched that she would cry over his grave and want to avenge him. That whole twisted storyline irritated me at the time and I was glad when it was over, so I'm not happy they are continuing it in another contrived plot.

Thank you, Aggie!! I knew you used to be a nurse! I’ve been wracking my brain to remember when else she said that recently but could not recall; someone recently was down for the count and Aggie went to help, saying the same thing. With apologies for just now not recalling who here suggested it first but I agree, Roy would do better giving Aggie hours with Richard.

A husband and his wife were sound asleep when suddenly the phone rang.

The husband picked up the phone and said,

"Hello? How the heck do I know? What do I look like, a weatherman?" He then slammed the phone down and settled into bed.

"Who was that?" asked his wife.

"I don't know. It was some guy who wanted to know if the coast was clear."

I got a good laugh out of Mary's remarks last night, especially the one about combining Christmas and Guy Faulks day ads - Freddy Kreuger bashing Santa and Rudolf or something like that was hilarious. I often feel the same way since I saw Christmas ads even before Halloween this year. It was so nice to get away from all the depressing story lines for a change.

Even Steve and Tim made a brief appearance, but I'm not happy about a spoiler I read re. Tracy so I hope it's wrong.

Michelle, queen of the universe, is not content with taking her half of the business but feels entitled to it all. I don't blame her for being mad but Robert was responsible for any success it had.

I hope that Stape's daughter doesn't follow in her father's footsteps and decide to go for a murder or two. She didn't look too stable in that last scene.

Hey Jude Yesterday at 19:30
Haili I'm going to have to re-watch that scene with Mary, and put on the closed captioning! I didn't pick up at all what she was going on about. She kills me with her giant crush on Adam! lol

Even thought neither are my favorites, I am looking forward to the scheme that Michelle and Carla are cooking up to mess Robert around. I wonder what Michelle has in mind.

Stealing the Bistro is a bit much, but I am looking forward to a big blow out at the wedding...if they make it to the wedding day.

I have no clue what she has in mind. Michelle is sure pushing Adam hard to do something sketchy.

Thoughts?

Beachy Carol Yesterday at 16:14
I was happy to hear Adam try to dissuade Michelle from doing anything illegal (he should speak, I know lol ) but he would be foolish to do anything that could bite him in the butt afterward. Carla was certainly aghast at Michelle wanting to marry Robert still; I wonder if in her heart she really agrees with Michelle’s plans to ruin Robert financially? Somehow I think being a businesswoman herself she would see that as extreme.

I would rather Michelle just humiliated Robert at the altar and then left, taking what is rightfully hers and moving on. I don’t see her financial revenge as an eye-for-an-eye response.

Louise Yesterday at 16:29
Strange that Michelle thinks if you pay a lawyer enough they’ll help you do something illegal. Who does she think she’s dealing with, Rudy Giuliani?

Sorry I just couldn’t help it. lol

Loved Premier Kathleen Wynne's speech.

The painting is beautiful.

Nancy Yesterday at 17:24
I'm having trouble finding a clear pic of the painting. On top of her firsts (female premier and first LGBTQ premier) I really appreciated some of the idealistic experiments (like the basic income trial and her desire to raise minimum wage she started and am very sorry she didn't get more terms in office.

Carolyn Yesterday at 18:28
I could never understand the inordinate amount of hate for this woman. She screwed up with Hydro but it was taken care of, she apologized and took the blame. I don't think the thing in the White House or the Ford brothers were hated as much as her. I don't get it.

Lise Yesterday at 18:38
She is a woman Carolyn. AND she is gay.

Wynne was a great Premier. My god! The woman is brilliant and she has integrity.

Lise Yesterday at 18:44
This photo is pretty clear Nancy.

The portrait is so good, it almost look like a photograph.

[toronto.citynews.ca]

The tulips: because she lived in Holland for 2 years and 2 children were born there.

The running shoes: jogging.

The scarves: because she loves them!

Nancy Yesterday at 18:50
Yep, never underestimate the power of misogyny - it sure pervades our culture.

Thanks Lise - I'm not nuts about the yellow backdrop, but it is a picture that shows her power and elegance and kindness, so I'm happy about that.

Hey Jude Yesterday at 19:22
Carolyn: I also think it's mainly because Wynne is gay. I liked her, even though I don't live in Ontario anymore. That is a gorgeous portrait of her.

Maybe it is just me but I am tired of people coming out of nowhere and having an association with someone on the street. Cue drama, deceptions, miscommunication etc.

Lately, we have:

Emma finding out that Steve is her real father.
Evelyn as Ty's gran.
Roy's long lost brother.
Jade hiding her connection to John Stapes.

These are just off the top of my head.

It is getting far too routine and is being done to death. Please find a new plot device.


That said, I have zero interest in this whole Jade/Fiz palaver. Another kidnapping or out of control criminal on the loose....proving what? that the Stapes apple does not fall far from the tree?

blitzen Yesterday at 16:05
I get what you're saying, but I wouldn't put Evelyn in the same category, as Tyrone had to actively seek her out, and it has really fleshed out his backstory and made a somewhat boring character much more interesting.

Emma being Steve's daughter is a stretch, but I don't care as I am really enjoying her integration into the family and all the lovely scenes with her and Amy.

What bugs me more is when they do a long-lost relative story, then later the person departs and are never referred to or spoken of again. Like Ken's homophobic son and con artist grandson. Hayley's son. Gail's gay father (although I rather suspect the actor may have passed on, but the character left on good terms and they could at least mention him once in a while). Dev's daughter Amber.

Lynn Yesterday at 17:04
True about Evelyn. I also am enjoying Amy and Emma bonding but I have to wonder when that will get disrupted.

Good memory about those who have drifted into the life of a character and then never spoken of again.

If we are bringing in characters from nowhere, this is my thought:

A 75is year old wanders into the Rovers and we find out that it is Audrey's half sister. The result of a wartime romance by Aud's father, child left behind. it is now or never for that type of story as that demographic ages. And then they and Claudia get big house and we have the makings of the Golden Girls of Weatherfield wink

Pearl Today at 00:25
Here's a scary thought, Corriepedia lists Roy as having three more half siblings on his father's side as Cropper is their last names. Stand by for an invasion!!

Gayle, I think Aggie is actually supposed to be a pharmacists assistant with first aid training. That's what I seem to recall. None of the Baileys have impressed me so far anyway. Dull as dishwater comes to mind. Roy is losing it. His intentions are good, but he really doesn't know Ray and the daughter. In fact he has no proof at all they are related.

Lise Yesterday at 16:29
I also think Aggie was a pharmacist assistant. Why isn't she looking for a job at a pharmacy?

Roy sees everything in black and white. When he sees something is wrong he tries to put it right. No matter the consequences.

Gayle Yesterday at 19:12
Sorry Hey Jude and Lise, I must have misunderstood what Aggie did for a living. Like you said Lise why isn't she working at a pharmacy? But then again we have had a librarian (Yasmeen) and a physiotherapist (Jenna Sophie's ex) working at Roys.

Hey Jude Yesterday at 19:27
Gayle, my guess is that so far there is no pharmacy on the street!LOL Maybe that's what they need to do to bring an interesting storyline to Aggie. Sorry, I'm drawing a blank: who was Jenna? (Brain fart central today lol )

Last night's eppie was good, so glad to see Paul getting the help he so desperately needs.
The Jade storyline is just getting stranger, what is she trying to accomplish? Is her plan to get custody of Hope, why, that child is another one in need of therapy. I don't understand how all of those people fit into that tiny little house, and how Fizz and Tryonne can afford to pay a nanny and eat out at the Bistro. (I know it's a soap) I have a feeling that Evelyn is becoming suspicious of Jade and it could all come to a head soon. I hope so, it's been dragging on far too long.
If Roy feels Ray needs more home care, why doesn't he hire Aggie (who is supposedly a nurse) to look after him, rather than giving her more hours in the cafe. Personally, I thought Roy went a little too far with his demands, he's only known his brother five minutes and is totally taking over. I could care less about Michelle & Robert and their stupid wedding.

Pearl Today at 00:16
Corriepedia has Aggie's occupation down as a pharmacist. To have her working for Roy at the cafe makes no sense as they were supposes to have moved for financial reasons and could use her having a higher wage. Besides which she is not a good cook.

I am beginning to like Evelyn more. She was spot on tonight with her comments to Jade and Hope. I like the wit she provides - the writers do quite well with one-liners. I loved asking for her "crushed nuts" after telling Brian off in the Kabin. That was hysterical but subtle. Much better than trying to create a foolish silly slapstick buffoon story line as they sometimes to in a failed attempt to be funny. The one liners are the best and Evelyn is getting as good as Blanche. Coronation St is very good at those one-liners. Much more realistic, witty and intelligent.

Mary's crush on Adam is just ludicrous and absurd.

I am really curious to see what they are going to do or not do with the Bailey's since no one seems to be "cottoning" on to them.

Many, many years ago they had a female character come on (I think her name might have been Lucy) and she was so terrible she was gone within 2 months or so - can't remember all the details but it was humiliating for her as she was just so lousy they had to get rid of her. Does anyone remember this - it was a blip and many years ago.

blitzen Yesterday at 14:51
Ooooh, that rings a vague bell! I think she was involved with Nick or something? I'm going to see what I can dig up.

Hey Jude Yesterday at 15:09
I've loved Evelyn from the get-go. Her wise-cracking one liners are great. She def has her suspicions about Jade. I think she has from the moment she first set eyes on Jade

Alexandra Yesterday at 15:16
Carolyn, are you thinking of Joni, Robert's ex wife, played by Sarah Harding?

Nancy Yesterday at 15:28
Do you mean Natasha Blakeman?

blitzen Yesterday at 15:45
Nancy, I was thinking of Natasha, but actually it looks like Alexandra found the one Carolyn was talking about. I remember her now, she was truly awful.

Jeannie Yesterday at 16:36
Interesting thread.
I don't remember Natasha, I might have been on a break from CS when she was on, but I vaguely remember Robert's ex wife.
Not saying I'm any kind of judge of acting talent but going by this clip I'd say "Joni" is a better actress than many past and present street folk. IMHO

carolyn Yesterday at 18:36
Thanks for searching but neither of those - it was SO long ago - like maybe 20 years or so. The only thing that rings a bell is the name Lucy (and I could be wrong) - not sure if that was her real name or the character.

Alexandra Yesterday at 19:17
I don't know whether this list will help. There are 3 Lucys on it: Barlow, Armitage and Foyle.

surprised to see John Stapes name show up at the grave. Luckily everyone here has updated us with the past story.

Alice Yesterday at 12:13
Shirley. I was surprised too. I read so many spoilers that it's nice to get a good jolt now and then.

I didn't like Roy meddling even worse after his niece told him not to.
Roy should pay for a cleaner to come (if the niece accepts)
like Gail or Mary or visit to help out himself.

So I guess the Polish girl (Nina?) is out of the picture if Sebastian is interested in Emma again.

Chris Yesterday at 02:59
I think there is an upcoming story-line with Alin and Seb, but I don't know any details.

Chris Yesterday at 03:01
* Alina.

Mark Yesterday at 03:10
Alina! lol good she's coming back.

Alice Yesterday at 13:49
Mark, agree Roy is interfering too much. He's so new to the situation he can't possibly know all the facts. He should, at the very least, be talking to Nina before making decisions for Richard.

Wonder why Peter didn't offer to reimburse the pawn shop owner for the merchandise Daniel destroyed with the golf club. All very fine to try for a sympathy fix but the owner is owed for the damages caused. Hopefully it comes out of Daniel's pocket.

Mark Yesterday at 02:32
I used to say this about Becky's rampages, the victims of the smashed car window and shop window have to pay for the damages and I was told not to worry the insurance company will pay so the same rule should apply to this shop owner. Just make a claim.
It doesn't matter to people here if his insurance goes up, it's just a show.

So it is true after all - Jade is John Stapes's daughter - now is Hope therefore her half sister, a child from another union he had? She is like her father - nasty and horrendously mean. What is with that outfit she wears all the time - the baby poo yellow sweater and checked skirt with a waist that comes up far too high. They both look like they were taken from a bargain basement used clothes store.

I am confused as to why Michelle is marrying Robert as she will gain nothing assets-wise - so I can only imagine that she is doing it to make a fool of him at the alter.

Evelyn was at her best tonight. She was dead on with her witty comments.

The Christmas rampage sounds frightening to me. I have come to dread guns more than ever due to all the mass shootings in the States - I live in Canada (thankfully) but when ever here is a terrorist shooting I become very distressed - so not sure I am going to like this story line. I trust it will not be too graphic as Corrie is usually good that way.

Gail Yesterday at 01:24
I may have a different perspective on many characters.
I don't like characters that get away with criminal/bad behaviour with no long-term consequences, like Tracy Barlow and Richard (??)(gail's husband who killed Maxine). I DO, however, feel sympathy with those who are caught up in circumstances that carry them along and they struggle to get out, getting in deeper.
John Stape -- was Sophie's teacher. She had a crush on him. Sally tried to get him to sleep with her and he rejected her. He was Fiz's partner and Rosie seduced him.
Yes, he kidnapped Rosie, but then found himself in a farce of "the ransom of Red Chief". He took another teacher's identity, who then blackmailed him (I believe), and after various killings (most justified due to the horrid people he killed), he left Rosie a lot of money to "make up" for her "ordeal". Which she promptly wasted.

Monique Yesterday at 03:37
Good post, Gail,I agree with everything you said.

Louise Yesterday at 04:53
So John Stape was justified in having an affair with the teenager Rosie because she seduced him. And kidnapping her was ok because in the end he left her a lot of money. And his killings (I don’t exactly recall who all he killed) were fine because they were horrible people anyway.
confused

Gail Yesterday at 07:15
Louise, in the John Stape/Rose affair, John was the innocent, Rosie had already become the self-centred, vapid brainless seductress...following in her mother's footsteps. (As you can tell, I am Team Kevin & Sophie!)
Remember, this is FICTION, where we go to get out our frustrations against bad people that we would NEVER act on IRL. Guilty pleasures. We need fantasy to get the outcome we crave when bad people get away with criminal acts...one reason why Law & Order is popular.

Alexandra Yesterday at 11:44
John Stape was teen-aged Rosie Webster's high school teacher when they began the affair. Teachers have been sent to jail for such actions.

Stape killed Joy Fishwick, Colin's mother, and Charlotte Hoyle. He also covered up Colin's death and hid his body under the factory floor.

In addition to kidnapping Rosie (twice), he also kidnapped Charlotte's parents and Chesney.

Monique Yesterday at 14:21
I understand where you're coming from Gail. The whole John Stape storyline was a totally unrealistic series of crimes that all happened out of ridiculous circumstances and John Stape lost control of the situation. Bottom line is John Stape was not an evil hardened criminal. He would never had deliberately set off to commit all those crimes.

Louise Yesterday at 15:55
So I guess Stape lost control of the situation with Rosie because she was a seductress and a bad girl, what’s a poor innocent teacher to do? Then there’s stealing another man’s identity, kidnapping Rosie (for five weeks!) and unfortunately for Stape people start dying. I forgot the hostage taking. Alexandra you did a good job of summarizing.
Unlike your average hardened criminal he didn’t set out to do any harm but circumstances got away from him.

I know it’s just fiction but I'm not buying his innocence. Most episodes of true crime on tv show apparently ordinary people committing murder and other crimes to solve a problem so Stape is not that unique (though I grant the whole story is rather bizarre). Even years before Me Too I recall the Rosie storyline as shocking - she was his student! He may have been a hapless criminal and an idiot but he was still a dangerous and seriously deranged criminal.

Phew, just got back from holidays and had 16 Corrie's to watch, some very intense episodes amongst them. Corrie is getting far too serious and now had to show warnings before the
abuse stories.
Don't get the factory stories at all, did I miss something? They're not moving in/they are moving in/they're just going to be a packing station.

Mark Yesterday at 03:13
It never made sense to me that the packing business was in the community center.
Where are the kids and adults supposed to be doing their activities?
Was Yazmean charging them rent?
They should have just moved into an empty shop and forget about the factory, sell the land and move on.

Mark Yesterday at 03:15
Sarah is turning the business back to a sewing factory with direct sales.
