2004 Coronation Street Special - The Kids (and teenagers) from Coronation Street.

Funny, interesting and a trip down memory lane. Lots of faces from the past. And a touching moment between Anne Kirkbride and Dawn Acton near the end, just being themselves.

Hey Jude,Since Nick [along with David] has been arrested for theft amd money laundering and is Carla's partner,maybe he cannot sign over the management of Underworlds to his little sister without Carla's authority.
Sarah may have to speak to Johnny to act as Carla's proxy or close Underworlds again.

Tracy, I would like to add my thanks to your theory about Carla having all those phones.
I was also confused and after reading your post to Pearl,it helped clear things up for me too.
So much for Gary 'feeling guilty'for Rama's death after deleting his confession on Sarah's phone to save his own skin, a confession he only made because he thought Rick was going to kill him and he wouldn't have to face the Connors or the factory workers who also could have been killed when the roof collapsed.

Tracy in post 3130 you stated 'you got the phone issue'. Could you explain to me how Carla collected all those phones and who they belong to?? One was Sarah's which she last had in the cafe. Who else had lost or mislayed their phone? Peter still had his I think.

Tracy Today at 13:14
Morning Pearl! I said I think I got it, so I will tell you what I think:
We saw a close up shot of Carla's purse, full of mobiles. I believe this was in Roy's flat. We had no explanation of the phones, so we were left to guess. I assumed she purchased them as per her paranoia.
We then see Carla and Gary in the archway, and Carla grabs Gary's phone out of his hand and throws it in her purse. We then get a glance inside the dark purse, and it appears Gary notices all the phones and prob recognized Sarah's phone.
He begs Carla to give him back his phone and mentions Jake to convince her.
We later see Gary at the hospital (I assume he was at the hospital, it looked like a waiting area) holding onto Sarah's phone, deleting his message (where he confesses to tampering with the roof for more work).
So I can only assume Gary somehow got into Carla's bag at the hospital and stole it back.
I also assume Carla has stole all the mobiles from the café, where she has easy access to do so.

A lot of assumptions, I know.
And I also know it doesn't answer your questions properly (after all that typing lol!).
I don't know of any other missing phones. I assume they are from background folk :)

Gail Today at 13:18
I wondered about all those phones too! That's one thing I'm very careful about and never leave it laying where it can invite theft when I'm out in public like I see so many people do! Just heard on the radio yesterday about how phones are such big targets for theft these days. The dang things are so expensive and I would be devastated to lose my pictures, which I try to remember to save elsewhere, but don't always get it done!

Louise Today at 14:31
Good recounting of events. When Carla said Gary was at her hospital room I thought she was just seeing things but then he deleted messages from Sarah's phone so I guess he was actually there.
Another message was from Gail, "my curling tongs have gone walkabout" lol

Hey Jude Today at 14:43
Tracy, that's a good explanation. I think a lot of us were wondering about that, thx! How Carla had all those phones was pretty vague and I was def scratching my head! I saw that about phones on the news too Gail

Gail Today at 15:46
I'm glad someone brought it up because I was beginning to worry that I had missed something significant and was thinking I wasn't paying close enough attention! But in the scene where she snatches Gary's phone from him in the alleway, it all came together that all of the phone grabs had taken place behind the scenes.

Will Eva return to Corrie?

"Never say never: Cath said.

Gail Today at 16:20
I live in hope! Eva was one of my all time favourites. I loved her ditzy silly sense of humour and her cute giggle/laugh. CT could do both drama and comedy very well and there were many little throwaway type scenes in the Rovers that were were memorable because of her.

The new factory update:
The workers are sewing labels, putting them in boxes and distributing the underwear.
They are no longer sewing and assembling them.

Tracy Today at 13:16
yes isn't that all as per the new deal that Carla arranged behind Nick's back, in order to get the factory rolling in some income...?

Gail,Unlike Carla,Nick or even Alya for that matter,Sarah isn't exactly business savvy with regards to clients or having business contacts as Carla does.
As much as I'm disliking Leanne right now,Leanne did have a point about the payroll as she doesn't have the authority to pay the factory workers nor does Sarah as she's only an assistant not one of the owners so she wouldn't have the authority either so she won't be able to pay the factory workers and I don't think they'll work for free which means the possibility of another strike that Sarah may not be able to deal with on her own!

Mark Yesterday at 21:11
I liked Leanne telling her that and defending Nick.

She was too busy admiring Gary's bruises and scars.
If Sarah can't even have labels ready for the workers then how can she run a factory?
Vicky would be the best one to supervise the workers.

Hey Jude Yesterday at 21:31
He isn't in jail yet, but whose to say Nick won't give Sarah the authority Marie? Whatever happens, I doubt any of them will be spending any time in jail. I bet there simply won't be enough to put anyone in the slammer! We are talking about the Keystone Cops, remember?!LOL lol

Jim - hope you feel better soon. Maybe a bit of sunshine would help but all we are getting here is rain rain rain. :(

Jim Yesterday at 19:14
Lise...i do get out even if raining-maybe we need to build an Ark-lol..i cant tolerate the sun much tho...i actually havent been well in three years and its gotten worse...had one test done to my arm which is also a problem..results for that on Tuesday...other test maybe if im up to it!!! Thanks-some days for a short period i do improve but then im back to feeling poorly!!!

Gail Yesterday at 19:15
I read an article where she said she may be back. I also liked her, especially once she got free of that waste of space liar Jude!

Nell Yesterday at 21:05
Gail, seriously? Do you remember where you read it? That would be awesome.

Lise Yesterday at 21:30
Angie Appleton:

[www.thesun.co.uk]

Nell Today at 15:48
Thanks. She's gotten other acting gigs since then and had to move on. But you never know. Maybe they'll revisit the idea of her return one day.

Nell..i agree...Angie should had stuck around..Mrs Bailey could had been a relative...or a friend of hers even...i dont miss Jude at all but Angie grew on me...i think her an Imran looked great together in scenes..maybe the writers decided to revamp the show but she should had stayed!!!!,,,Mark i dont recall if thats the one...my memory isnt exactly what it used to be but it might have been!!!(i consider all on the guestbook my friends and i never ever get mad at any of you even if we ever disagree on anything)

Hey Jude Yesterday at 18:15
Jim, I had to step out a few minutes ago, but I wanted to write that I had also hoped Angie would stay after Jude left. He was a horrible man. I don't know if the actress playing Angie wanted to leave, but if not, surely they could have come up with some really good storylines for her. She was smart, articulate and pretty - what was there not to like?!LOL Big mistake on Corrie bosses part IMHO.

Jim Yesterday at 19:11
Hey Jude..maybe one day she will be back for at least a visit???

Gail Yesterday at 19:20
I suppose their decisions to keep some characters and let some go are based on the long term story lines which we aren't always aware of and how that character will fit in with the story. I could have seen a lot of potential for Angie there.

Mark Yesterday at 20:15
Hey Jude, In Jude's defense he lied because he loved Angie
and not to defraud her.

Nell Yesterday at 21:11
To quote Dr. Phil (who I don't watch, but I know he says this a lot) smile - What was in it for Jude when he lied? Because if he wasn't getting a pay-off, he wouldn't have been lying.

Lise Yesterday at 21:28
Jude was a serial liar. Where is the love in that? confused

Hey Jude Yesterday at 22:52
Lise, so right.
Nell, exactly! He was a douche bag, plain and simple.
Mark, you dont love someone and then lie constantly. I'm guessing you were being funny

Mark Yesterday at 23:04
That's the reason Jude gave.
Why else would he lie? He didn't do it to defraud her.
Other characters lie all the time and no one hates them.

Louise Yesterday at 23:34
Fraud = deceit. A relationship founded on lies is not a loving relationship.

“Other characters lie all the time and no one hates them.” Sorry, what?

Gail Today at 15:52
Jude is/was a very sick person who needs professional help. Why would anyone want a relationship with someone they had to deceive into the relationship by pretending to be something they're not? It will eventually catch up with you and you will live in fear, as Jude did, that the truth with come out. Yet, I'm sure it happens all the time in real life, sometimes high profile cases that make headlines!

Nell 9 minutes ago
Pathological. It would be frightening to wake up one day and realize the person you married and live with under the same roof is not only not who you thought they were, but a complete stranger.

***OFF TOPIC, BUT STILL CORRIE RELATED***

Peter Schmeichel the famous Danish football player just married his long time love.

The Corrie connection: Chesney named his dog after him. Who could ever forget Schmeichel (the dog). I cried buckets when he died (the dog).

Here's a look back. frown

[www.youtube.com]

Dianne Yesterday at 17:28
oops, sorry!

Lise Yesterday at 18:27
It was so real! I cried too. The actor who plays Chesney was so good in that scene.

Hey Jude Yesterday at 18:47
Those scenes made me cry too and then later we had to put our Black Lab down. I cried buckets that night and still can get teary eyed over him. He was the sweetest, funniest dog frown

But Nell..some werent gone that long-Angie just left a short time ago...and im pretty sure The Baileys were being conceived months ago and casting long before they are shown-as most characters are...The Barlows are an iconic family from the shows beginning-why shouldnt they stick round-they are part of the shows rich history...we also have Muslem characters...while there have been plenty of certain ethnic characters over the last few years where are Asians going to ever get there fair share of screen time-i know some live in England too...i only recall one Asian on this show if i recall correctly!!!..i look forward to the Bailey family-already caught a glimpse and they already interest me...im not arguing or being mean in any shape or form...just have a civil conversation so i hope no one gets my comments wrong!!!!

Mark Yesterday at 17:11
Are you referring to the Asian girl who was a friend of Tina and who went out with Graham (?).
There was also a chinaman who cooked the fish.
Were there more?

Nell Yesterday at 17:21
I agree with a lot of what you say, Jim. Including the bit about unconventional families vs. conventional. I want the Barlows to stick around too, including Daniel.

The actress who plays Angie was promised she could stay after Jude left. She said as much in an interview - there were other plans for her character she was told. Then there was a sudden turnabout and she was given the pink slip. It’s too bad because I think Angie, the baby and Mary could have made for another interesting family dynamic and grown from there with more characters in the future. Just as they’re growing the Winter-Brown family (Gemma, Chesney, Gemma’s brother and mom to come, and the 4 babies, assuming they all survive). The producer appears to have hopes for the Winter-Brown family to become long-term and established. Imagine 4 mini-me Gemmas, fully grown.

Lise Yesterday at 20:37
There was also Orchid, Fred Elliott's girlfriend. From Thailand I believe.

Was she a mail order bride?

That story was creepy.

Pearl Today at 00:14
Orchid was an impostor, worked at a local market stall, after Fred for his money. There was a man involved too, forget their true names.

Hey Jude Today at 02:42
I thought she was a mail order bride Lise but I might be mistaken.

blitzen Today at 04:47
"Chinaman"??? That's--at best--a very dated term. Really not appropriate in this day and age.

Alexandra Today at 10:46
Fred thought she was a mail order bride, but it was a scam.

[coronationstreet.fandom.com]

Lise Today at 12:46
Chinaman is a derogatory term Mark.

Nell Today at 16:00
A demeaning and racist stereotype going back to when Chinese immigrants were called by that derogatory term instead of by their actual individual names. They were all lumped together, mocked and dehumanized.

Nell 55 minutes ago
Back to when they came to N. America to work as labourers, and their bosses and co-wkrs wouldn't acknowledge them by their real names.

On Digital Spy there is a SPOILER about Gemma's mother. Unbelievable !! Who comes up with these ideas? There is also a SPOILER about Robert.

Nell 1 minutes ago
What is the spoiler? What I read on DS was generic and didn't say much, so it must be another article. Looking at the photos, they sure have made the actress up to look entirely different as Gemma's mom, vs. her days as a paramedic, on I think the show is called Casualty.

Gail; you mentioned Angela Giffin and The Detail. It was a rip off of Scott and Bailey. It took place in Toronto and was produced by Sally Wainright who wrote Scott and Bailey. She played the Janet Scott role but with a Canadian accent. You did not miss anything!!

Gail Yesterday at 16:35
Thanks for the info Taffy. I guess she thought she could recreate it for the Canadian audiences. Just as they did in the US with Broadchurch which I didn't see but heard it wasn't as good as the British version even though David Tennant again starred as the cop. .

Lise Yesterday at 17:42
Gail -These shows rarely work. Except in the case of "All In The Family" which was modelled on "Till Death Us Do Part". Both great series.

Mark,I don't think Sarah is qualified to run Underworlds as she has no experience whatsoever except that she's Nick's sister.
Since Nick is being investigated for money laundering as well as theft,I'm surprised that Underworlds is allowed to operate at all.
As for Gail throwing David out of his home,I thought[with rolled eyes] here we go again and thought that Gail should have been the one to leave and stay with Audrey[I'll duck now]and wonder how will she explain the situation to his children?
I also thought that since she did break off her engagement to David over the theft that Shona should have left too and considering her own past history[accessory to Callum's death,framing David by planting drugs in his drawer in the salon to steal the job in Milan]I didn't like Sarah's holier than thou attitude towards David's part in the theft.

Mark Yesterday at 16:39
I think Nick should be allowed to keep the factory business till he's proven guilty.
Carla should have a power of attorney delegating someone like Johnny to look after the affairs of the factory.

Gail moving in with Audrey would make more sense.
Good get rid of Shona. The ways she dressed in torn clothing she didn't fit in with Sara's and Bethany and Gail's fashion look.
She looked like a maid from the estates.

Gail Yesterday at 16:40
I know you don't like Sarah Marie, and don't want to see her do well or succeed in any way, but she has been working in the front office with Carla for quite a while now and I got the impression that Sarah was quite keen on learning and has. It's making and selling knickers, it's not high technology Marie! I'm sure Sarah has picked up enough and has a staff there who know what they're doing as well. I think together they could keep their knickers up and running!

Gail Yesterday at 16:45
Also, Sarah had a good job in the fashion industry in the fashion capital of Europe, Milan, working for Uncle Stephen. Aside from the fact that she underhandedly came by that job of course. But it doesn't change the fact that she had experience.

Mark Yesterday at 17:06
Gail, in case you forgot, they are just sewing on labels, boxing and distributing the merchandise.

Sarah wanted Nick to leave the factory to her or something like that which I think is a lot to ask.

Gail Yesterday at 17:18
Sarah works there and Nick is her brother. I don't think that's unreasonble for her to want to take over while he's in prison. Oh but it's Sarah so she must have some greedy agenda going on there. Yes, I know they're just labeling, packing and shipping. I think Sarah can manage that easily enough.

Mark Yesterday at 17:23
I thought I heard her tell Nick not to return to the factory.

Hey Jude Yesterday at 18:20
Gail: I also think Sarah is more than capable of running the factory, and as you basically said, it's not rocket science, its sewing knickers together! She was stressed out yesterday at whatshername in the wheelchair, but I think once she gets a proper handle on things, she could do well, AND, as you also said, she helped at her brother's factory in Milan, so she obviously has gained some experience there. She has the smarts and the personality to get it done.

haili Yesterday at 18:40
If Michelle can do it with no experience than I guess so can Sarah but Nick is innocent until proven guilty and as far as we know had nothing to do with the factory roof; it was Carla's decision not to get it fixed. His theft of Audrey's money is another matter and if he ends up in jail (which I doubt), then someone else will have to take over. I think Sally probably has more experience than Sarah.

Hey Jude Yesterday at 19:21
Sally wouldnt last 2 minutes in that job, she would have the staff hating her in no time! I totally predict Sally will offer to be an assistant to Sarah though! lol

Mark Yesterday at 20:47
Carla got away with running over Stella then Cathy and not reporting the dead Polish worker.
Again, she will get away with not fixing the roof properly.

Pearl Today at 00:04
Sarah worked for Uncle Steven (Gail's half brother) in Milan. Agree that Sarah could do a better job of overseeing workers than Sally (too controlling by far). Someone needs access to the accounts to pay the employees.

Im all for diversity in soaps..Asians are lacking the most...nice seeing The Baileys but they are not the first on this show just because they have both parents and two sons as many families come in variety..Lloyd and his daughter was there...Steph and her brother was there..just because both parents are not there doesnt make them more or less a family!!!

Hey Jude Yesterday at 16:21
Jim, you exactly how I've been feeling, bless your heart! And i hope you feel better soon!

Gail Yesterday at 16:26
EXACTLY Jim! I'm surprised at the attitude, especially in 2019 when a family can be defined in so many ways. Sorry to hear you've been unwell. Hope you're on the mend now.

Mark Yesterday at 16:28
I thought of the same thing Jim but I didn't want to start a long drawn out debate with the #@*%!ally correct GB police.

Another one was the massage therapist and her mother who were always fighting.

Mark Yesterday at 16:30
The P word gets auto censored now. lol

Nell Yesterday at 16:52
Were. Was. Past tense. Gone now. I believe the discussion was about established families vs characters passing through and never to be seen again. Bigger picture vs. details. Forest vs. trees. wink

Here’s another example: why was Angie Appleton written out just because her husband is no longer on the scene. You can bet when Sinead leaves Daniel from the established Barlow clan will still be allowed to stick around!

I know, I’m talking to the wind. lol

I only caught the first few minutes...

Is David leaving his own house? or was that resolved later in the show?

Mark Yesterday at 16:32
As far as I understand David is still expected to leave his house by order of Gail and Shona.
But at the end Shona is having some doubts, saying it's not her house or family but she also said she's staying for the kids.

What do you think David should do? Leave or stay?

Great posts for this week's shows. It certainly gave me a chill seeing 'Rana' at the top of the fire escape, and watching Carla's profound despair that she had caused her death.

When I saw the red anorak cloaked figure, with Carla calling out to Hayley, I almost expected it to be Hayley, who would turn around to tell Carla that she did not kill Rana, and that the roof collapse was a result of vandalism. The cameo appearance of Julie H. would have been overwhelmingly effective in helping Carla realise that she was not to blame for the fatality. The medication she was being given would also help.

I enjoyed all the episodes this week but Thursday and Friday were standouts, especially Thursday. The entire episode was edgy and atmospheric in a way that was very unlike Corrie and I was delighted to see them using different techniques visually as well as using background sounds to help create the atmosphere. Alison King has gone over and above to show us Carla in a psychotic state. I'll be surprised if she doesn't get an award for her performance. Everyone in fact brought their best performances to the table in this one! Her hallucinations of Rana were so well done and very eerie. Had I not known from reading it here before I saw it I think it would have had even more of an impact on me but I knew it was coming which is fine. Great make-up and lighting in that scene. All in all, it was a great week on Corrie! Now I have to square my shoulders and prepare for the return of you-know-who. The small dose we got of her looking all pale and sick was enough but there's plenty more to come. frown

Thoroughly enjoyed Thurs and Friday's shows last night. It was nice to watch them consecutively.
I'm assuming they filmed Rana's part, prior to the actress' exit.
Michelle had such a look of horror on her face - quite well done!

Mark, I think I got the 'phone' issue, re Gary's/Sarah's/Carla's purse.

It will be interesting how they play this out, with respect to punishment and the law of soapland. He didn't murder Rana. He vandalized the roof and is responsible for her death as a result. The only thing I am not looking forward to, is more angst from Imran. He really isn't good in this role, imho.

I remember Fiona.How did they have her leave again? Could she come back?

Hey Jude Yesterday at 12:56
Shirley: No, they were talking about how many black actors have been on the show.
I'm looking forward to a new family on the street.

Tracy Yesterday at 13:14
I think, but could be wrong: She had an affair with Jim MacDonald (she was Steve's girlfriend first); then she got marrried (or was supposed to) a man/character who was just brought in for the storyline. I think he may have been a police officer or firefighter???... Fiona had a child and there was question over the paternity. She got in a fight with Steve, and Maxine, then took her baby boy and left Weatherfield for good.

So, yes, they could bring the character back. And with a young adult son in tow... Who's the Daddy storyline perhaps.

Alexandra Yesterday at 13:43
The actress certainly has considered a return. I'd like to see Fiona come back.

Gail Yesterday at 13:52
Fiona (Angela Griffin) was always a favourite of mine. I enjoyed her and Maxine together. She was and possibly still is working on a Canadian series filmed right here in Toronto called The Detail. I can't say I've seen it in the listings so no idea where it aired or when but it says it was made in 2018. [www.imdb.com]

Gail Yesterday at 14:24
You're right Tracy. She was Steve's GF and did have an affair with Jim and I remember it made everyone just a little squeamish at the time LOL But I forget exactly how the baby situation panned out or who was the daddy and couldn't find anything on it.

Chris Yesterday at 18:59
The boyfriend was a police office called Alan McKenna, I think. I believe he tangled with Steve McDonald, but I don't remember the details.

Pearl Yesterday at 23:42
Alan & Fiona's wedding got called off because Jim burst in at the "if anyone has just cause why these two persons should not be joined etc" point and claimed his undieing love for her. That was in 1997, Fiona's baby boy Morgan was born Feb 16/98, Alan was registered as father although he left the show after the aborted wedding. Jim & Steve came to blows over this. Don't remember if Alan was involved or not.

Jimmi Harkishin has been tweeting a lot of pics from his travels, but none of them are from India. All the pics are from China and Japan. I'm not sure I believe Dev's story about Uncle Umed dying. wink [coronationstreet.fandom.com]

Alice Yesterday at 01:10
Sorry Chris, I think it was Uncle Umed who called and Uncle Ravi who is dying. Either way, Jimmi Harkishin is having a blast in China and Japan.

Chris Yesterday at 01:15
Thanks Alice, I'll have to re-listen to Dev's phone call.

Dianne W. Yesterday at 14:32
Dev's kids mentioned that they would attend a party, etc. while their Dad was in India. The actor in real life is having a vacation away from Corrie in Asia, and the plot has been written that he would travel to India to see his uncle before he died. Actors are free to go anywhere when they are not filming Corrie scenes. smile

I wonder who is going to find the contract David signed and tear it up. Sarah? Gail? Shona?

Nice to have a reminder of the past. Mention of Ravi Desai has brought back that whole story to me. Nita and Vikram. Vikram and Steve starting the taxi firm. I hope we get more reminders like this. Even Roy saying he remembered Ravi was refreshing.

Mark Yesterday at 01:04
Ohhh that guy...
This is the 3 rd reference to past characters, good writer!

Gail Yesterday at 02:24
I think the references to past characters is so wonderful and gives such a connection with the long history of the show to the viewers who have been watching for a long time. I'm so glad they've been doing that lately and hope it continues.

I dreamed of Dev last night and he appeared in tonight's show... eek!

He should place his shelving so he can see down the aisles to catch shoplifters.

I liked how Leanne defended Nick in the sewing room.

In Nick's defense, had he not taken the money, Lewis would have taken it
(if he had not died).

The women should move in with Audrey Gran and David should stay in his house.
Them scowling at him is causing him stress which is not good for his kids.

Rana's ghost, Gemma and Carla aren't wearing make up. This is what they really look like eek!

Nell Yesterday at 00:37
I kind of think Lewis would have found a way to get Audrey’s money too. Not that that lets Nick off the hook. But I wonder when Audrey talks about Lewis like he was the love of her life. What about Allie. Has she completely forgotten all about him?

Nell Yesterday at 00:38
* Alfie

Mark Yesterday at 00:51
Audrey only married Alfie as a way to get him to buy her a hair Salon.

Gail Yesterday at 01:56
Wasn't Lewis planning to propose to Audrey when he died suddenly? I recall he was acting suspicious and meeting that woman at a hotel. His ears definitely perked up when he heard about that money she inherited! I believe Audrey loved Alfie and in all fairness, he was quite persistent with his proposals to her until she finally agreed to marry him. Even though she was always frustrating him the way she spent his money he loved her with all his heart for his part! I don't think she's forgotten him at all.

Nell Yesterday at 02:02
Gail, I remember she used to talk about Alfie with affection, until Lewis came along.

Gail Yesterday at 02:29
I don't think her feelings have changed but Alfie has been gone a long time now and Audrey fell in love again. Audrey did grow to love him even though I don't believe she was deeply romantically in love with him when she married him and he knew that. The writers may not have had her talk about him while Lewis was in the picture but I don't recall that she often did talk about him anyway. But as you said, when she did, it was with deep affection.

Tracy Yesterday at 13:32
Whenever I hear about Alf, I always feel so sorry for the actor. His character died of a heart attack, and then the actor died of a heart attack (I think?) shortly thereafter. He never got to enjoy his retirement. I believe by the time we saw the scene of Alf's death - the actor had already passed away. We were months behind Corrie back then, and of course the scenes are filmed long before they air on tv.

Anyone else remember that?

Alexandra Yesterday at 14:07
Tracy, I remember that too.

Bill Tarmey also died very shortly after he left the show and didn't have much time to enjoy his retirement.

Tracy Yesterday at 14:43
Yes, Bill Tarmey was and is, my all-time favourite. Loved his portrayal of Jack Duckworth, my fave character. Legend. Feel like I knew the man, he had a kindness about him. I feel the same about Pat Phelan/Connor McIntyre. True gentlemen.

Does anyone know where great great grand ma Audrey is going to live now that she hates David?

(her house is dry rotted unless it's all fixed up now)
IMO She should sleep on the couch in the Salon.

Like Hey Jude or another once said, she should just buy a condo in Nick's building.

Chris Friday 22:07
Gail told David that Audrey had moved back to Grasmere Drive as she couldn't bear being in his home. So we must assume that her house is atleast liveable.

Hey Jude Friday 22:13
I remember Gail said that too, Chris

Mark Friday 22:52
Thanks smile

Marie and Hey Jude, it's time to stop speculating and just watch Thursday's episode.
Spoiler: it's not Robert nor Nick. lol

Chris Friday 21:13
Yep, in fact, it's in the last few minutes of the episode. #ff

Mark Friday 21:26
Gary's voice was so scratchy what was the reason he gave?


I had ruled out Gary because what kind of an idiot contractor would sabotage his own work since he'd be held liable and would have to redo it all over at his expense.

Chris Friday 22:09
Gary simply justified his actions by saying it was because he needed work.

Mark Friday 23:02
Thanks Chris smile

Hey Jude,Just to clarify,I thought Nick and Gary were in it together as they both had motives[financial]neither of them has a conscience, both were up early the morning of the collapse and Gary made sure Sarah wasn't in the factory.
Anyway I was half right as Gary is the likely culprit and he certainly doesn't have a conscience deleting his confession on Sarah's phone to ensure that Nick remains the only suspect.

Hey Jude Friday 22:11
That's true Marie and like Lise said below, so many culprits have been thrown into the mix, I wouldn't be surprised if it was Oliver!!lol lol m
