Bejaysus! The big Oirish man has railly gone too far noy.
Liz and Jim go to an army reunion night, they take Andy's car
and Jim has too much to drink. At the reunion, they meet with
Jim's best pal from his army days and innuendo flies when he makes
comments about Liz. On the way back home in the car, with Liz
driving, Jim loses his temper once more, demanding to know what
happened between Liz and his pal in the past. Liz admits they
had a brief fling, and this is more than Jim can take. Liz stops
the car and they argue, and then Jim gets out of the car, walks
around to the driver's side and pulls Liz out of the car, calls
her names that a man shouldn't call his wife and thumps her!!
He then drives off in the car, leaving Liz on the ground crying.
When Jim gets back home he finds Andy and Ann there, they had
gone to the house for some peace and quiet while everyone was
out, after Racquel had tried her match making skills on them both.
He tells Andy what has happened but shows no remorse, believing
that Liz deserved what he did to her. Andy rings Steve and Vicky,
then Andy and Ann go off in search of Liz. Meanwhile, Liz takes
a taxi to Deidre's flat. When she arrives, she explains to the
taxi driver that she hasn't got any money and it's obvious that
she's in a real state but the taxi driver won't listen. Ray Cropper
is just entering his flat as the taxi pulls up, and pays the fare
for Liz. What a hero. (Look for a nice touch when he pulls his
key out of his bag... it's attached to his bag with a piece of
As this is the middle of the night, what's Ray Cropper doing coming
in at such a late hour? Determined to find out whether there really
is a ghost in the Rovers, Ray stays behind, hiding in the cellar
after closing time. Jack and Vera are woken by strange noises
and are sure they have a burglar and are quite relieved to find
it's only Ray, who explains what he's been doing. "Are you
a medium?" asks Vera. "No, I'm a 42" replies Ray.
The next day Bill Webster sees Liz in Deidre's flat. Liz has made
her black eye look much worse by painting it with make-up and
is determined that everyone should know what Jim has done to her.
Jim comes around to see Bill, and Bill lets Jim know where Liz
is, but he isn't interested in seeing her and walks out of the
building. Andy and Steve take Deidre to Jim's house and they take
Liz's clothes back to Deidre's flat. Liz goes into the Rovers
with her bruises on show and Des wonders if the fight was because
of him. "Don't worry" she says "your name wasn't
mentioned". When she arrives for work the next day, Jim is
waiting for her, he apologises and tells her he's sorry, that
he'll never do it again. What will Liz's reaction be to that?
Tune in next week!
