So today's episode focused on three key elements. First we had Eva/Jason. Something I'm not opposed to at all. We should have gone there in the first place, it was obvious, but because Collinson is stupid and likes cougar relationships, Jason shacked up with Stella instead. (And that was the BETTER of the two relationships last year. I'd mention the other one but I'm still suffering from PTSD.) However, while they look good on paper and it makes sense for the writers to pursue this road, I'm not feeling a whole lot of chemistry there. Maybe it's because they just haven't had a whole lot of fun yet - after all, we didn't see their dinner date - but at the moment, I'm not going for them. There's still time though. Second of all, Hayley making contact with Christian. And she's totally gonna keep quiet about the whole dying thing, isn't she? *groan* Hasn't she learnt nothing from a few years ago? Apart from that, Roy and Hayley scenes continue to be a joy to watch. Just the focus on Hayley laughing today while Roy not getting the joke. There will never be another relationship like this on any soap. What Roy & Hayley have is unique and it's sad that it's all coming to an end. But I'm sure we'll get plenty of Oscar NTA worthy performances (for what they're worth!) before she bows out for good. Finally... um... wait what was it again?... no I've completely forgotten... Oh yes, um NICK IS AWAKE!!!! EEEEEE!!!! And possibly brain-damaged! Something original (for Corrie) on my soap! And it's about bloody time! He's been out since early August. I mean, Ben Thompson must have had time to go on a world cruise or something. (Also I was looking at his Wiki profile and he 41!!! I mean, holy shit, he does not look that old!!!)

And then Dev blew everything to shit...

So... today was pretty awesome.

Don't you just hate it when the love of your life agrees to marry you, the registrar tells you that you're now husband and wife...

...and then the husband of the woman that died in the pub fire bursts in to your wedding, about to expose you as the town arsonist.

Kinda sucks, doesn't it Karl? Hope you like your new prison cell!

(Or alternatively you could become batshit crazy, hold Stella and Dev hostage at the Rovers, and die in a fire  while your victims escape with nary a scratch. But since I've seen no upcoming spoilers of any explosions, I think its safe to say you're going to prison)

I cannot WAIT for Friday's episode!!!
