In the final five minutes Wednesday, two scenes we’ve all been waiting for.
Rob squirms as Tracy tells the cops that he gave her the charm bracelet that Steph claims was stolen from her apartment the night Tina was murdered. Steph barges in and gives the story of each charm, and notices one is missing. Where did you get the bracelet, Mr. Donovan, asks the police officer. Rob looks like he wishes the floor would swallow him up.
Outside on the street, Todd saunters arm in arm with his new man. Marcus comes around the corner with little Liam in tow. Todd and new guy kiss. It’s not a ‘good to see you’ cheek peck. Hard for even Todd to sweet-talk his way out of this. Marcus leaves Liam in the dust and runs across to knock Todd against the wall and tell him what he really really thinks.
Liam headed out almost to the street, and fortunately Maria appeared from the salon in time to grab him. And she didn’t go off the nut about it afterward to Marcus, who indeed had totally forgotten that he was minding a child.
If you pvr episodes, it would be easy – and unfortunate – to have missed these. Corrie Street started late that day due to the Commonwealth Games running overtime. “Hmm, just a couple minutes left, probably nothing much but we might as well record it later.” After watching those missing end moments, we thanked CBC for their late night rebroadcast. There are some things you really want to see.
More thanks to CBC for now posting episodes online daily. When they started putting them online, that’s what they did. Then, for reasons never adequately explained, they posted the whole week on Sunday. Inconvenient if you miss, say, Tuesday’s episode and want to watch in sequence. See their website for details, next week’s social media “Corrie Week” and video specials.
