The Platts are in the headlines due to Sarah's marriage to Adam, as well as Bethany's departure from Weatherfield. But there is drama there, too, as Geoff tries to manipulate Yasmeen, while Jade makes a pass at Tyrone.
Marriage fever struck Weatherfield, which I think is down to the fact that the bride Sarah Platt and groom Adam Barlow look like they should be on the cover of one of those glossy magazines giving tips on how to make your wedding day a dream Amazingly, it seems that the two of them are going to get hit without a hitch, which is more than it can be said for the other people who are dreaming about tying the knot.
Maria and Gary, for example, were eager to decide on a date, but at the moment, they are unaware of the fact that in June of last year, Rick Neelan, a shark loan, bumped off and buried his body in the woods. Then there is Daniel, whose proposal to Bethany on Wednesday will be marred by the fact that he is half-cut and in possession of the ring worn by his late wife Sinead, who is barely cold in her grave. And they're claiming the romance is dead.
Now, talking of Bethany, a beggar believes that she would have chosen to stay around for so long. She lived an enviable, sun-kissed life in Milan for the first 15 years of her experience. But then she rocked up here and, in no time at all, clashed with the local gangster Callum and was sexually exploited by Nathan, before being shamed by the likes of Beth and Tracy for her ill-timed flirtations with Daniel.
But then this is the route most soap female characters seem to travel: to arrive acting all carefree and bubbly, to leave after being devastated and shattered. So, Bethany, I wish you well. Here's the chance you're going to be a little less cursed now that you've forcibly removed yourself from the Street shackles. And to star Lucy Fallon, good luck. In a screen family as well known as the Platts, it must be hard to make an impression. But we never lost interest in Bethany as viewers, with the writers always offering her too much to worry over.
