Episode 7886



Simon’s bad behaviour escalates, from screaming at Peter “I hate you, I wish you weren’t me dad” to breaking open bottles of wine. With Peter questioning his family set-up after finding Simon unconscious, Carla begins to wonder if Weatherfield trams stay on the rails longer than her relationships.

Looking even more unstable in this hour-long episode are gruesome twosome Karl and Sunita (surely a latterday Dev and Deirdre?) whose affair takes a disconcerting turn. Just how will Karl react when a wild-eyed Sunita tells him her marriage is over for good? By getting a restraining order, if he has any sense.


Hour-long episode. Simon leaves school without permission and shuts himself in a cupboard at home as a frantic search is launched. While hiding, he finds some wine stashed away by Carla, and Peter later discovers him unconscious on the sofa with the open bottle. Elsewhere, Dev begs Sunita to give their relationship another chance, but she has already assured Karl that he is the man she wants, and Nick leaves Eva in the lurch at the overstretched Bistro to help Leanne.
