Geoff's abuse will go on for a year and get worse and worse. Sighh...

Hey Jude 25 minutes ago
Oh I don't think I can go through watching all of that frown Enough is enough I say

Lise 10 minutes ago
I'm not happy either HJ. We know these things happen.
I don't need to see it played out on a program that is meant to entertain.

Yet another teaching lesson.

Yes. I guess I will be searching out more shows on Netflix!LOL Right now I am watching Hinterland. Do you have Netflix Lise? Sorry if you've already told me yes or no. My memory is dreadful these days!LOL

Monday's double episode was one of the best I've seen in a long while - no Gemma, no Brian, no Mary, no sad attempts at humor which seems to usually fail, no Steve being a buffoon. It seemed to flow like it used to and it wasn't jumping around quickly from character to character - it all just went smoothly, no confusion, no irritation. Just very interesting. My sister and I agree it was the best episodes in a long time and most of the characters in it were the older ones - Carla, Peter, Roy, Sally, Maria etc.

Maria's on line dating efforts can lead to a lot of interesting story lines both funny and dramatic.

That gold chain around Geoff's neck has added an extra "yuck" factor to his being. He's a horrid little man, not attractive, I just don't know what Yasmeen sees in him. Putting up that ginormous photo of her late son was cruel - no doubt he knew it was over the top and would bother her both in size and location.

Dierdre R. became a widow when her husband Samir was killed by thugs at the canal.

haili Today at 16:05
This isn't the first time Peter's been nasty to Roy. He has no respect for Ken and doesn't seem to respect Roy either. I wouldn't give him house room. Both Peter and Carla should have places of their own at their age. I thought Beth and Kirk were living in an apartment Carla owns. It's time for them both to grow up and find a place of their own.

Gayle Today at 16:08
Haili as usual I agree with you completely! When Peter was so snippy with Roy, I thought to myself, why don't you and Carla get a place of your own. Roy doesn't need them and their drama in his little tiny apartment.

A few comments on last night's eppie. I thought it rather odd that Michelle and Roy were sitting in on Carla's meeting with the (I assume mental health care worker) Why does Imran put up with Leeanne's snippy attitude? I thought Peter was rather short with Tyronne when all he did was politely ask how Carla was doing. I think Peter needs to back off a bit and stop hovering around Carla so much, yelling at Roy because Carla dared to leave the apartment! That attitude is going to get old really fast.
Beth is another character that needs to dial it down, I thought she was unnecessarily nasty to Carla when she came into the "factory" Sean and Sarah were lovely with her.
Geoff gets worse every episode, now he wants Alya out of the Yasmeen's home. I am not looking forward to where this storyline is heading. I've known men like him in real life and they can be very scary.

Alexandra Today at 15:21
You raise some really good points Gayle. My guess is that the case worker would see Michelle and Roy as part of Carla's support network, especially Roy as she will be living at his place. If Carla had objected, they probably wouldn't have been allowed to stay.

I agree about Peter and Beth. They both need to dial it back. Sally was also lovely to Carla.

Geoff is trying to isolate Yasmeen from her family and friends so that he can control her. I noticed that he said he would have a look at her finances. Uh oh. The sad thing is, she told him how difficult it was for her to trust anyone after Sharif, so I hate to think what this will do to her when she finds out the truth about Geoff. I like Yasmeen as the strong woman. I just hope that, when the time comes, Alya doesn't make it all about herself, as she tends to do.

Tim's reaction was interesting when Geoff mentioned Tim's mother.

Maggie Today at 03:58
Not a spoiler, just a guess, but I think there's something there too. Tim previously told about his father getting rid of his dog. Geoff said he didn't do it but I'll bet he did. We've seen how he has a way of doing something awful and then turning it around so he looks like the good guy. He probably did the same thing to Tim too, and his mother. Maybe Tim will be the one to recognize what Geoff is doing to Yasmeen.

Joan Today at 09:56
I think Tim has only Geoff's version of whatever happened. I assume she is still alive? Maybe she'll turn up one day to tell her side.

Beachy Carol Today at 12:31
Very interesting comments! I didn’t recall that about Tim’s dog but now it’s coming back to me. Geoff likely gaslighted both his wife and Tim, possibly turning Tim against his mother and then keeping Tim “in line” by getting rid of his dog. Now this is a true evil person if all that is correct - a scarier villain than someone cartoonishly bad.

Alexandra Today at 15:26
Geoff's "little jokes" are usually cruel, such as making Yasmeen believe he had cooked her chicken, or his fooling Brian about the gardening. I've been trying to remember whether we saw any indication of this side of him when Audrey first met him in the hospital.

Alexandra Today at 15:30
Turns out there was a hint of Geoff's nasty side:

"Audrey complained to Geoff that the music being played on the station was terrible. Geoff told Audrey that his show which started in half an hour may be a bit more suitable for Audrey's music taste and asked if she wanted to make a request for a song. Audrey asked Geoff if she would play "Crazy" by Patsy Cline.

Audrey tuned into Geoff's radio show and was delighted when he told his listeners of an encounter with her a delightful woman on the Tony Wilson ward. Geoff complimented her spirit and was confident that she would be back on her feet in no time. Despite her suggestion for Patsy Cline, Geoff decided to dedicate a song that he believed summed up what he wanted to say to Audrey and Rita earlier. However, Audrey's delight was cut short as she was unamused when Geoff started playing "Shaddap You Face" by Joe Dolce." - Corriepedia

Jeannie Today at 17:36
Wow Alexandra, you were paying attention! I missed that entirely but I guess I have to take back what I said about Geoff turning out to be an abuser being a random choice. Clearly, this was in the works for a while.

Alexandra 28 minutes ago
Jeannie, I just remembered that he had done something to annoy Audrey, but I had to look up what it was. It does seem to have been a long-term plan.

So I was trying to list the killers (Gary, Ali, Tracy) but what about widows and widowers? (I might be off on some of these, please help me out)
Gail
Maria
David
Rita?
Eileen (but good riddance Pat)

from other than homicide:
Audrey
Roy
Leanne (was she actually married to Kal?)
Ken
Fiz
Cathy
Dev

boyfriends/girlfriends killed:
Alya
Sophie
Kate

Dianne Yesterday at 22:18
Ken widower.

Dianne Yesterday at 22:19
Sorry, didn’t see him on the second list.

Pearl Yesterday at 22:36
Rita was widowed twice, first from Len Fairclough - road accident, second time Ted Sullivan - brain tumor. Since them she married Dennis Tanner but still goes be Sullivan.

Chris Yesterday at 23:41
Emily's husband, Ernest, was murdered.

Maggie Yesterday at 23:56
Widow/widower:

Kevin
Tyrone (he and Molly were still married, right?)
Evelyn
Johnny
Michelle (although I don't think she and Dean ever married)

For an even more depressing list, count all the children on the Street who have lost one of their parents!

Chris Today at 00:25
Dev should be moved to the first list. His wife, Sunita, was murdered by Karl Munro.

Nell Today at 00:30
Wow, that's a long list. It really puts things into perspective!

Chris Today at 01:16
Steph Britton, unknowingly lost Andy to serial killer Pat Phelan.

Joan, this is an interesting thread; makes you think, doesn't it. smile

Dianne W. Today at 01:45
Sophie's friend Maddie, in an explosion.

Dianne W. Today at 01:47
Oops - I posted too quickly, since Sophie has already been mentioned.

Alexandra Today at 02:26
Kevin's wife, Allison, committed suicide.

Alexandra Today at 02:34
oops, missed Kevin on Maggie's list.

Carla (her first husband, Paul).

Joan Today at 09:54
So, shouldn't Toyah have more work? Should there be a full time grief counselor on the street??
I can think of two people I know vaguely through a friend that faced this challenge, in my entire life.
(Someone I met I later found out her sister was killed by a serial killer, and another I met who knew a woman whose husband or ex-husband killed her and tried to stage it as a suicide).
This is a scary street indeed!!

Joan Today at 12:25
Pearl and Chris, yes, Rita and Dev should be switched.

I have caught up with all of last week's episodes, and am enjoying the interesting, thoughtful and factual posts from the Guestbook members.

Regarding creepy Geoff, he will probably try to "gaslight" Yasmeen soon, and when he was following (stalking) her outside, I saw his expression, and it was frightening. frown

Beachy Carol Yesterday at 19:25
That’s exactly the word we used too, Dianne. I think it has started, with Geoff deliberately taking and spilling Yasmeen’s drink on Ryan’s amp and letting her think she did it. Her confusion then upset was hard to watch :(

I love Yasmeen’s relationship now with Sally. From adversaries to somewhat reluctant friends to almost family (with the Tim/Geoff connection) they are fun and funny together, always with a tinge of sarcasm. I hope it will be Sally who becomes Yasmeen’s champion.

Louise\Nell,It was when Nick was in a coma after the accident and Gail told Kylie it would be 'nice'if she was carrying Nick's child so if he doesn't recover from the brain injury,the child would be a link to him.
Yes it was one of weirdest scenes in Corrie.
I don't think Nick had ever had regrets over betraying his brother as he dismissed it since they were drunk.He only regretted it when Leanne found out he could be the father of Kylie's unborn baby and left him.

Gail,Nick only tried to save Peter to look good in Leanne's eyes but let Ashley who was married to Claire and a father to Joshua and Freddie die to save himself.
I think Claire even confronted him about letting Ashley die to save his own skin before leaving for France with her mother.

Maggie Yesterday at 15:07
Here's the scene where Ashley dies. Nick did not leave him to die - he even went back in for him when the whole building was crashing down.

[www.youtube.com]

Nell Today at 00:35
Thanks Marie, I remember it now. What were the writers thinking.

One thing, when Nick was in the hospital after the car accident with David, and they spoke after he finally regained consciousness, those two called a truce of sorts. David's anger at Nick dissipated when he realized the seriousness of what he'd done. So neither one really mentioned it again, after the one or two thoughtful discussions they had in the hospital. It wouldn't make sense for Nick to keep bringing it up as David doesn't either, including David's part in the accident. It was the writers' way of getting those two to talk to each other again and draw a line under what had happened.

Blanche's Polish Hip has been around for a fair amount of time. He/She is very chuffed when you leave a comment which, before I joined the CBC Coronation Chat group, I often did, so if you particularly enjoyed something or want to make an even worse joke, the author used to be quite pleased and I imagine still is.

Nell,I think Nick had a better childhood than David who had to deal with the revelation his mother almost had an abortion when she was pregnant with him and he was almost murdered along with the rest of his family by his stepfather Richard Hillman when he drove the car into the canal.
Nick's determination to get Peter drinking could have killed Peter as he was still recovering from being trapped in the Bistro along with Nick and Ashley[who I believe Nick left to die so he could be with Leanne].
Granted Kylie was no innocent in their one night stand but that doesn't excuse Nick's betraying his brother and his lack of remorse for doing so.
Nick blackmailed David into doing a DNA test on Lily to see if HE was the father.Gail took it to amore sickening level telling Kylie she hoped Nick not David was the father of her unborn child and needless to say was very disappointed when the results were in David's favor.

Hey Jude,I think Callum's body was found when Tyrone lost control of a car he was working on and crashed into the Platts' garage.
Todd lied and said it was Jason's father Tony [who died]who killed Callum to protect Sarah.

Nell Sunday 19:23
Why did Gail hope Nick was the dad and not David? I don't recall this. That sounds strange and weird, on the part of the writers. What would motivate Gail to feel that way?

Nell Sunday 19:30
I recall Nick feeling a great deal of remorse over his one night stand with Kylie. No it doesn't make it right. But he regretted it the next morning and said to Kylie it was a mistake. Nick apologized to David for his betrayal, which he did acknowledge in the car with David, just prior to the accident which scarred Nick for life.

David was not an abused kid. There was a lot of love in the Platt household, despite Martin Platt being an irresponsible and neglectful father. Gail did what she could and had to take on the role of both parents. Absent fathers don't do their kids any favours.

Louise Sunday 21:05
I don’t recall that detail either about Gail wishing Nick was the father.
I believe Gail did her best by her kids. I’ve seen far worse and families that got a lot less love from their mothers but they survived and came to better understand and sometimes even accept. I don’t like how it’s almost always mama’s fault. Most parents do their best and I’ve yet to meet a perfect family or a perfect parent. Never. The most loving parents in the world have failed their kids, just ask them.

Gail Yesterday at 01:26
I also recall Nick did his best to try to save Peter and Ashley but had to abandon them because he would have died himself if he didn't leave the building. I don't think he deliberately left them to die. Unless I'm just forgetting that bit! It was a while go now.

Nell Yesterday at 14:24
I think possibly the OP or anyone who blindly defends David Platt for his multitude of sins is identifying with the character himself, who has the tendency to blame Gail for everything under the sun and more. Look at the disdain in his voice when he addresses her as "Gail" and his endless complaints. Nothing is ever enough, and no amount of anyone giving endlessly to him would satisfy him.

However, this is meant to show the viewer David's character flaws. He's bitter, angry and ungrateful, no matter what she does for him and always looking for a scapegoat to blame.

David is a narcissist. Reminds me of the question: How many narcissists does it take to scre.w in a light bulb? Answer: One. He holds the bulb while the world revolves around him. That's our David.

Hey Jude Yesterday at 14:34
Nell; That's it! That's exactly how David is! Well said!

Nell Today at 00:40
Thanks Hey Jude. smile As annoying as David is, Jack Shepherd does a brilliant job portraying him. I usually don't mind David, but do wish he would let up on Gail and give her a break! Especially now that he's a parent himself, and makes his own mistakes.

Yes the whole Nick, David, Sarah, Gail, Callum thing is a mess! I cant even remember: is Callum still rotting away under Gail's addition? If so, wouldnt there have been a God awful smell?

Maggie Sunday 20:46
No, Callum's body was discovered when Tryrone crashed into the annex and his van broke open the floor. They ended up blaming Tony (Jason's dad) and he conveniently died, so that was the end of that. IF I'm remembering correctly! Haha. Something like that, anyway.

Joan,Sarah is not a murderer,she was almost a murder victim as Kylie killed Callum who was strangling Sarah.
However Sarah could be an accessory to murder after the fact since she helped David and Kylie put Callum's body in the hole under the house.

Nell,When it hit the fan about Nick sleeping with Kylie,that's when Nick hid behind mummy manipulating his mother to throw David out of the house and move him in.
Even now Gail seems more sympathetic to Nick then David over the theft of Audrey's money as I think Gail spoke to Audrey about not pressing charges more for Nick's benefit than David's.

Nell Sunday 18:56
Has Nick every tried to kill anyone? Yes, getting Peter back on booze was repulsive and vengeful. But has Nick ever decided he wanted to end anyone's life or cause someone serious physical injury from which there was no return? Like David has. It's a miracle no one has actually died because of David. It's a miracle (1) he's not motherless, and (2) that Gail still speaks to him and let him of all people, get her house. That's more down to luck on his side than anything else (no one having died). However David IS responsible for Nick's brain injury. Regardless of what Nick did, he didn't deserve that. No one does. Nick didn't hold a gun to Kylie's head. She was a willing participant.

David was born under a lucky star. He could just as easily be Gary who has caused a few deaths; the irony being Gary's intention wasn't to hurt anyone (self defense doesn't really count). So again I think David is in a league of his own. Motive and blind hate sets David apart.

Nick is cold too. The Platt men are self-centered. To say David's actions and reactions are always down to other people is to ignore too much evidence. It's not as though Gail locked David in a cage in the basement for years on end as a child. Aside from being abandoned by his father, he's had it much better growing up than many children do in life.

Joan Sunday 18:59
I chose the word killer instead of murderer. She killed in self-defense (of Kylie) but she still killed.

Joan Sunday 19:01
Oops, was it Kylie that killed Callum in defense of Sarah? In my head I must have switched them!

Nell Sunday 19:05
It was Kylie who saved Sarah from Callum.

Nell Sunday 19:15
Up above I was talking about Nick and Kylie's one night stand, when David and Kylie were having marriage problems. David put 100% of the blame on Nick and let Kylie off the hook.

Pearl Yesterday at 00:09
To add a bit more about Nick & Kylie's one night, David was involved in the prelude. It was the night of Leanne & Nick's wedding that Eva spoiled by telling the assemble that Leanne stopped to visit Peter on her way to the church. Finding Carla there she left. Earlier in the day David was drinking with a bunch of friends and telling them how Kylie was a pole dancer when he met her. She was serving them at the time and he humiliated her. After the aborted wedding Nick had the honeymoon suit to himself, Kylie visited him there. Since they were both feeling rejected one thing lead to another. If we want to throw blame around there is enough for everyone.

Nell Yesterday at 01:53
Good memory! I knew David was being a supreme jerk in the lead up. Thanks for filling in the details Pearl. Now I remember that. It was a case where I seemed to recall David shouldered some responsibility but was hazy on the particulars.

Like Louise said, it bothers me too how so much unnecessary blame is heaped on Gail. Being a single working mum (or dad) has got to be one of the hardest jobs in the world. Credit where credit is due. I don't know how the real life Gails in the world do it!

How many killers are on the street now anyway? (including self-defense)
Sarah, Gary, Ali, are there more?
Tracy is the only one that can talk about her crime.

Nell Yesterday at 00:05
I think you got them all (except for Sarah).

Thinking about killers led me to think about cheaters. We had a thread not long ago asking who hasn't cheated (yet). Elsewhere people are asking who will be MacLeod's Molvin (Molly and Kevin), as in most mismatched cheating couple.

If you're interested there are some good comments here. And some scary ideas put forth, mostly because nothing is impossible. Like Tim and Fiz for instance. lol Although to me that's still not nearly as bad as the Peter/ Tina pairing.

Nell,When Sarah[who's also an adult] was having a breakdown after Callum's death,the first thing Gail did was get her professional help but for David,her only solution was to lock him in a basement?!
Unlike Nick who hides behind mummy and uses his brain injury to get away with things, David has dealt with the consquences of his actions as he did go to juvenile hall when he pushed his mother down the stairs.
Nick has more of a a tipping point to get what he wants and he doesn't care who he hurts in the process such as the aforementioned getting Peter[who was struggling after the tram crash]to drink and stealing his gran's money.
I don't think Nick even loves Leanne but is with her out of convience because she did his dirty work for him getting rid of Natalie and I bet once the trial is over,he will dump her for someone else.

Nell Sunday 18:24
Hi, don't get me wrong. I'm not a Nick fan either. I'm not saying one is great and the other is not. I don't see Nick as same level psycho as David, but they're both best avoided if you ask me. Shona hasn't seen the other side of David I don't think? at least not yet anyway. I don't know why Leanne stays. She's clearly getting something out of it.

One thing, I don't think Nick hides behind his mother. He's quite independent and while she keeps trying to mother both her boys, I don't think he's asking for her help. She does something dumb soon, in a misbegotten plan to "help" both her boys. Oh Gail. roll eyes (sarcastic)

haili Sunday 18:47
It's Gail I feel sorry for - torn between her boys and her mom and getting blamed for everything. They did the crime and we'll see if they do the time, though the Keystone Kops usually arrest the wrong person.

As for Nick and Leanne, I think they really do love each other even though they keep breaking up and getting back together. Somehow they are drawn to each other. As for Peter, he doesn't need anyone's help to fall off the wagon; he does it when things don't go his way and is convinced it's all Ken's fault. These are all adults and need to start taking responsibility for their own actions.

Nell Sunday 19:02
Haili, well said. I agree, esp. about Gail and Peter. In a dysfunctional way, Nick and Leanne probably do love each other as much as they can love anyone.

Hello Sheila

I joined the Guestbook quite a while ago, but have largely just looked at Posts on the Guestbook. I just wanted to THANK YOU for all the wonderful work, effort and expertise you put into looking after everything.

I think you are very good at deciding when to step in and point out when posters are being disrespectful etc. I can see how this could turn into a full time career, if you did not adjudicate effectively. Cool heads will prevail and it shows.

Again Sheila, thanks again. Much appreciated.

Welcome and Very nice post margarette! Well said and so true about R Sheila! We wouldn't have this fun forum to enjoy were it not for her. Please join us with your comments more often!

Lise Sunday 18:43
Nice post you two!
For Sheila to see it though you must use the private message.

haili,I'm going to play devil's advocate with David as I don't think he caused Nick's brain injury,it was an accident as the they were hit by a truck due to their arguing over Nick sleeping with Kylie.
As for his murder\suicide attempt with the gas cans,I blame Gail for not getting professional help for her son who was suffering a nervous breakdown after Kylie's murder when he thought Clayton was going to get away with it deciding instead with Nick's and Sarah's help I may add to lock him in the basement in the Bistro until the trial was over.
As for Nick,he too can be a pschyopath,trying to get Peter drinking after the tram crash so Leanne would leave Peter for him and didn't show a bit of remorse stealing his gran's money which is a form of elder abuse,evem spending part of it on jewelry for Leanne and not at all concerned that Audrey was left penniless and had to sell the salon to pay for a new roof.

Nell Sunday 17:11
My take on David -- I think there's a screw loose in David's brain and unlike his brother, he doesn't have a real excuse like a brain injury. Sure he's ok when things are going his way. Happy families and all that. But it doesn't take much for him to reach his tipping point when things aren't going the way he wants. And he's sorely lacking in empathy (much like his brother most days). This is looking at David alone, minus anybody else around him. Since he's an adult and no longer a child.

Why blame Gail for not getting David help, when David is old enough to seek it out himself. I feel for parents IRL, when they're blamed for everything their adult child does wrong in life.

I'm so disappointed in Geoff. I had such high hopes for his character. Now that Alya and Ryan spotted Geoff with the necklace, they'll want an explanation. I'm sure being the good liar that he is, he'll manage to find a way to explain why he has it. He'll probably say he had just found it laying in the alleyway and was on his way to give it to Yasmeen. The thieves must have dropped it as they fled or something like that and they'll believe him, but maybe they'll watch him a little more closely now.

Taking the pictures was a little strange. Why would thieves be interested in pictures? They'd only be interested in things with some monetary value, not sentimental value. That was Geoff's jealousy showing, letting his guard down and trying to hurt Yasmeen by taking something that was important to her for sentimental reasons.

Alexandra Sunday 15:47
Gail, I just thought they (real thieves) would take the pictures for the frames, which looked as though they were silver. Of course Geoff would take the pictures to upset Yasmeen and make Alya feel more guilty.

Joan Sunday 15:52
Alya jumps to conclusions a lot. Ryan was still doubting his friends did it. If they question Geoff, it will up his efforts to isolate and gaslight Yasmeen. He's so insecure. The boxing thing hurt his ego too.

Gail Sunday 16:30
Maybe, but I saw it as Geoff wanting to take away something that she loved for it's sentimental value more than anything. Those lads were very genuinely nice guys but Geoff was right, they were strangers and of course he had a good point about letting strangers into your home.

Joan Sunday 17:40
The owner of the home was partying with the strangers, and as we know they are innocent.

He did choose items of personal value, instead of just monetary. That hurts more. Makes Yasmeen feel more vulnerable.

Geoff will use every normal daily thing and turn it into something unsafe and dangerous in Yasmeen's mind. He has also started with the "what people must think of you!" about her drinking. He will try to make her completely dependent on him and isolated from her friends.
At least if I was writing the story that's what would come next.
Charlie Stubbs did it to Shelley, didn't he?

Hola Nell - Read Laura Fernandez's tribute.

And you can also listen to Laura's picks of Joao Gilberto's songs.

When you have the time and the inclination. :<)

Nell Sunday 16:49
I so enjoyed those songs. Thank you. Such a talented man. Some days nothing but bossa nova will do... smile

Coronation Street star Jack P Shepherd teases David Platt could return to his "psycho" ways.

Coronation Street star Jack P Shepherd has hinted that David Platt could return to his dark ways in the future.

... hinting at what may be to come, Jack told The Sun: "That's the beauty of it with the Platts. They can all switch and go a bit psycho one minute then vulnerable and emotional and funny. It works each way for all the characters."

haili Sunday 13:50
David was always more of a psycho than Nick. I remember him pushing Gail down the stairs and just leaving her there, causing the accident that gave Nick the head injury, and setting out with those cans of gas that gave
Anna those horrible burns. He's mellowed lately but I wouldn't like to be the one that annoys him.

gail Sunday 15:08
For sure haili. Nick is not so much psycho as he's devious, arrogant and egotistical and always thinks he can justify the things he does.

gail Sunday 15:14
For sure haili. Nick is not so much psycho as he's devious, arrogant and egotistical and always thinks he can justify the things he does.

Maggie Sunday 15:24
It's funny how some of these stories are written. The quote provided doesn't actually suggest David may go back to his psycho ways - it says that any of the Platt's could go psycho at any time, or not.

Nell Sunday 16:48
There's a spoiler in the link about the sentencing in court, which I think leads David to go down this path (again). Prison time tends to bring out the worst in people. It seldom reforms.

Nell Sunday 16:51
Last Friday's double bill in the UK included sentencing for both David and Nick. They were good episodes. I'll be curious to hear what people think, when they air in Canada.

Nell Sunday 17:32
I'm sorry, if there was a delete function here I'd remove my spoiler 2 messages up. I pretty much gave it away about David and what Jack Shepherd was probably alluding to.

Watching the omnibus.

This is where Geoff is making the joke that he killed Yasmine's chicken.
That's not funny.
Geoff's tactics are very realistic.

Nell Sunday 17:25
It was pretty sick and twisted of Geoff.

One thing, I wonder why Yasmeen eats chicken at all. I have a friend who keeps a few chickens in her backyard. She got them for eggs, and has become so close to them, she could never eat chicken again. I know this wouldn't apply to everyone. I'm just thinking of Yasmeen though, who has a big heart. How do you have one chicken as a pet, and eat another one. I don't get it. Not to take anything away from Geoff, who can't leave the show fast enough to suit me.

Joan Sunday 17:43
I know someone who keeps her own exotic pet chickens till the end of their lives (and pays some hefty vet bills too) but still eats store-bought chicken. I find it strange too.

They only lay for about two years.

Nell...i mentioned months ago about a Roy and Evelyn pairing...maybe if she mellowed a bit she would be perfect tho i do like how she tells it like it is even if she is wrong or not...i wouldnt mind them as friends at least...

Nell Sunday 11:09
I couldn't remember who said it first. Thanks Jim. It would be great if she mellowed a bit but like you say, not too much.

Did you know a new character named Jade is coming to CS with Fiz's return. I know I'm changing the subject, but it comes to mind because doesn't Evelyn still live with Fiz and Tyrone? I don't see how there'd be room at their place for yet another person, unless Evelyn goes to live elsewhere.

Joan Sunday 12:12
I believe Jade will be some kind of therapist. No need to live with Fiz and Tyrone?

Nell Sunday 12:42
SPOILER ALERT - All the news stories I've read about Jade say she will at some point move in with Fiz and Tyrone, and that it will cause problems between the couple.

I agree normally there'd be no need for her to move in?

j Sunday 13:47
I don't really buy Tyrone as a cheater. I know they have written him that way, but it doesn't suit him.
With all he has been through because of his mom, he was always so serious about love and relationships.

Joan Sunday 13:48
oops that was me

Nell Sunday 16:55
Me neither, Joan. Cheating stories are inevitable in any soap, but I wish they wouldn't play Eeny, meeny, miny, moe when deciding who will do it next. Or that's how it appears to me sometimes, it seems so arbitrary.

Joan Sunday 17:49
Remember when they had Ashley cheat on his sweet wife Claire, but they never showed it onscreen? I read it was because the actor wouldn't show up to work that day. It was totally out of character IMHO.
I see Fiz being more susceptible to flattery than Ty.

Nell Sunday 19:36
Joan, yes! I could see Fiz being more susceptible than Tyrone too. I didn't know that about the actor who plays Ashley. How interesting and good for him, for taking a stand.

Pearl Sunday 23:35
Since Evelyn is minding the shop for Dev while he and the twins are away, maybe she could move into #7 with Mary. Now that would be a water and oil mixture with lots of hijinks.

I'm intrigued by the idea tossed around before about Roy and Evelyn becoming a couple (not a spoiler). He could do a lot worse. She's a very striking woman. And somehow I think there'd be more chemistry between the two of them than there ever was between Roy and Cathy. Whoever came up with the Roy and Evelyn pairing, it's brilliant.

Maggie Sunday 02:26
I think Evelyn is too mean-spirited for Roy.

Nell Sunday 02:29
I agree she's got a mean-spiritedness about her that would probably be too much for anyone to take, day in and day out. But you don't think love would mellow her? I'd like to think it might. I could be wrong.

Dianne Sunday 02:36
I thought she was much older than Roy. Old enough to be his Mom.

Nell Sunday 03:15
I thought there was only about a decade between them? I've mentioned before I think Roy is older than his chronological age. Someone ultra serious, who grew up too soon and never had a chance to be a real kid when young. I've called him an old man before, but I wasn't thinking in terms of his chronological age so much as his personality. So I couldn't see him with most women his own age. I think that was one reason why it never worked with Cathy. She knows how to connect to her inner child. Hailey was an exception, maybe because they both saw themselves as oddballs or eccentrics, and understood each other. I think he would weigh down most women his age. I don't know. I'm probably over-thinking this!

I'm curious about where they will go with Roy. He's not an easy person to match up, but then neither is Evelyn. I'd like to see Evelyn with someone eventually, but not with a psycho (like another Geoff).

Nell Sunday 03:33
If not a romance, a solid friendship between Roy and Evelyn could be interesting too.

Joan Sunday 12:14
Friendship yes. A romance with Roy should be with someone as extraordinary and unique as Hailey. Honesty is too big a deal for Roy. Evelyn is too much of a scammer. Wouldn't that drive Roy round the bend?

Nell Sunday 12:37
Good points. I guess I didn't really think it through. So nice to see you back, Joan! I've missed your posts.

Joan Sunday 13:07
Nice to see you too Nell.
I would like Roy and Evelyne to do "capers" like Spider and Emily did (for good causes). I like them as a team (when they were looking for Cerberus was pretty funny) but not romantically.

Nell Sunday 13:20
That would be fun. Some of my favourite periods and moments of Corrie past involve the friendships. Roy and Evelyn as the new Spider and Emily would make for great viewing. It's been said on this GB that not everybody has to be in a relationship, and it's true.

Gail Sunday 13:30
I thought Roy and Evelyn were very funny together when they were out looking for her dog. There were some very funny moments, like when the police encountered them in the car in what appeared to be a compromising position. LOL I could see them as best friends for sure but I don't see them as a couple but anything is possible I suppose!

Lise Sunday 14:22
Nice to read you again Joan!

Joan Sunday 14:30
Hi Lise!

Maggie Sunday 15:19
Good points, Joan. Yes, I can totally see Roy and Evelyn developing a strong, and fun, friendship - along with some capers. smile Evelyn could draw Roy out into situations he'd never be in otherwise, and Roy could help Evelyn to be a bit more compassionate and kind - all the while just enjoying each other's company. I'd like to see that too!

Pearl Sunday 23:25
The age difference between Evelyn and Roy is 7 years, birth dates 1947 and 1954 respectively. Not the biggest gap with the woman being older by any stretch by any means. That was 28 years between Deirdre and Samir Rachid. Agree that a friendship for Evelyn and Roy could be beneficial to both of them.

Just saw Rocketman. I was blown away by the actor who portrayed Elton John. A must see for any Elton John fans

Chris Saturday 23:23
I enjoyed Rocketman too, Hey Jude. Another good one to see is Bohemian Rhapsody. I haven't seen Yesterday yet, but will soon. I hope one day a movie will be made of David Bowie's career and music.

Hey Jude Saturday 23:28
I saw those 2 as well Chris! Both wonderful films! Yes I'm sure they will do one about David Bowie as well.
