Hell hath no fury
Hell indeed hath no fury like a woman scorned by lover, lover’s mother, boss who is also lover’s grandmother, and co-worker who is also lover’s brother. Natasha let pretty much everybody in Weatherfield know exactly what she thought of them before she jumped in a black taxi and left. She also let them know what Nick thought of them. You go, girl! It was wonderful.
First David, with whom she attempted to be nice. When he rebuffed her, she told him “next to you I’m sanity personified. You’re seriously disturbed.”
Then the factory. First Nick: “You wrecked my heart.” Then the workers, telling them what Nick calls them after hours. Sean “limp wrists,” Janice “grunting garden gnome,” Julie “Jackie O – no, Jackie No.” Carla tells her to leave and she shoots back “Goodbye, ‘Mount Everest – icy, wouldn’t want to go there’!”
Finally, her coup de grâce. The medical clinic. She told Gail and the doctor what she thought of Gail abusing her position by snooping through Natasha’s confidential records. Doctor Dishy agreed and Gail was fired on the spot.
Her work there finished, Natasha jumped in her taxi and left. The only thing that destroyed her triumphant regain of herself was Nick coming out of the factory toward her. But she didn’t tell the driver to stop! And Nick didn’t really pursue her. It was just sad, after such a beautiful swathe through town, seeing her crumple in the taxi, the righteous anger going out of her.
The fallout continues. Carla’s wrath at Nick caused him to quit, so he’s now living at home unemployed. The spillover of her wrath toward Trevor caused him to quit – both the Underworld job and their relationship. She sought solace in bottles of wine and surprisingly, considering her distaste for all things Scottish, Scotch I think. Now she’s avoiding Peter’s efforts to recruit her to AA meetings.
Dr. Dishy rejected Gail’s plea for reinstatement. His appointments are now scheduled and tea and bikkies served by Deirdre, “just temping”. David and Tina seemed to be regaining some friendship after she sympathized with him about Natasha’s outburst. But then he pretty much attempted to rape her. Even he must be wondering if he is a psychopath.
