Coronation Street Scene of the Week (June 12/11)

Nick patting Natasha's bellyNick patting Natasha’s belly and cooing to the baby inside versus a couple months ago Nick asking Leanne if she didn’t sometimes picture herself and him and little baby that might have been.  Hard to decide which is more revolting.

A power outage meant I missed Tuesday’s episode,  So Monday ended with Nick burning rubber getting away from Natasha and her announcement that she was pregnant (right after he’d put the moves on Leanne – yuck!).  And Wednesday opened with I’m-yer-daddy cooing and patting.  Whaatt?

When I saw Natasha was unusually reserved around him, I thought she’d come to her senses and was as disgusted by this overnight change in Nick as I was.  Good for you Natasha, I thought, you’re not believing a word of this happy families malarkey.

Doctor listening to Natasha on babiesThen she went to see new Dr. Dishy at the neighbourhood clinic.  She told him she’d just had an abortion and now she wanted to get pregnant again asap because Nick was back with her?????

When Nick decided to ‘do the right thing’, she didn’t want to tell him she’d aborted the baby.  So now she wants to get pregnant again fast enough that she can just “play fast and loose” with the dates and he’ll never know.  That was a fast abortion!  When did she have it, in a commercial break?

Clearly Dr. Dishy had some problems with her reasoning about why and why not have a baby.  I was hoping he’d suggest ‘fixing’ her so she wouldn’t be able to play silly games with unborn or born children anymore.  Neutering Nick too might not be a bad idea.

I believe strongly in a woman’s right to choose whether or not to continue a pregnancy.  But “he isn’t happy about me being pregnant five minutes after he dumped me, so I’ll get rid of it right now”, then “oopsie, he does want the baby so I’d better replace it as soon asLeanne, in Rovers, toasts baby I can” is not a justifiable reason for either an abortion or a pregnancy.

Then the moment of tears Thursday, both Leanne’s and mine.  After she hears Nick announce Natasha’s pregnancy to the Rovers, she goes outside to cry and to spare herself having to explain to Natasha in Leanne's face, 'he's mine'anyone.  Natasha, not knowing that Leanne too aborted a child of Nick’s, follows and accuses her of wanting “her” man.  Oh grow up, Natasha!

leanne sad after Natasha stomps awayLeanne, hurting all over again about the pregnancy she had unwillingly ended, didn’t say that.  She said, “Drop dead, Natasha,” and Natasha stalked off.  And she still had no inkling of the real reason Leanne’s eyes were filled with such pain.
