Messrs. Big

I like the baddie who came to make Callum pay up. I like his tony-denton-and-petehenchman too. And when Tony burst in the door, the triumvirate of tough guys was complete. Poor Callum has been screeching with terror a lot lately. Last week with Tony pounding him. This week with Mr. Big coming to collect what’s owed him one way or the other.

Poor Jason was caught hiding beside the closet, due to an ill-timed phone call from his ‘Mam’. The timing of his pay-back visit to Callum was tony-comes-through-dooroff as well. If he had waited just a bit, Denton and Pete might have taken care of Callum for him.

While Jason’s new bad-boy butchy look and attitude would be enough to give Callum the thumping he is owed, his injuries mean he is not at fighting strength. But Tony is, and Tony is going to save his son from himself or Callum.

But the two senior men – Tony and Mr. Big – had a stare-down and reached an understanding. Tony only wants to get his boy out of there and he is not going to make any trouble about Tony Callum Dentonwhatever Mr. Big needs to do with Callum.

Callum is squeezing David and Kylie for money so he can pay Mr. Big what he owes. So I guess we’ll be seeing a lot of Callum-the-heavy. I hope we see Mr. Big and Pete again. They do it so well.

If you liked the horse race game Roy found at Cathy’s as much as I did, here’s what eBay is offering:

When I’m 62

poor tracy cryingTracy got the news that Rob got 25 years in prison and she cried genuine tears. Poor Tracy, I thought with my heart going out to her. “I’m going to be 62 by the time he gets out.” Poor Tracy indeed. Yes, that’s what will keep Rob awake nights worrying about in his jail cell while Big Louie and the other inmates try to get to know him better.

She is truly distraught about Rob, but she just can’t help it: her misery takes priority. tracy-at-bedroom-doorLosing her true love to decades behind bars is unfortunate for her, but it’s a damned sight more unfortunate for Rob!

Tony’s sympathetic words about picking yourself up and carrying on did push her to see if she could go on with her life. First step, attract a man. She needs to know that she can do it, to keep her from becoming a lonely old lady “who has cats”.  So what if that man is someone else’s?

Tony in the crosshairs

tracy-propositions-tonyYou knew Tony didn’t stand a chance, and maybe he didn’t want to keep away. For Tracy, it was just proximity, I think. It just happened to be Tony who was there. Could have been anybody with a pulse. On Tony’s part, who knows?

Tony-carries-Tracy-to-bedThe bonus of this scene was seeing Tony’s apartment. I like it. Maybe we, and he, will be seeing more of it now that he’s carried Tracy off to the bedroom. Because you know Liz is not going to forgive or forget. Maybe Tony should think about getting a cat – would be much safer company than Tracy, or Liz once she knows.
