I don’t mind Michelle as much as others seem tonintently dislike her. She’s decent enough now.

I think everyone’s thinking that. I feel like they’re just trying to redeem Max by making us feel empathetic for him but it ain’t working. Viewers aren’t dumb enough to forget all the crap he’s done recently. Plus the last couple of weeks have been so dismal that I feel Abi’s getting the easy way out.

So embarrassing that five male characters have gone AWOL yet nobody appears to care!

The writing is extremely sloppy. Corrie is in much better form

Least of all the writers.

And we all thought John Yorke would be good.

I don't wanna be 'that person' but she kinda annoyed me. Screaming that it was her dad's fault. Fair enough. It probably was. But I've watched the clip loads and she reached out for Abi. She killed her technically haha

And they were fools to join him on the edge. They could've said everything they said from the main roof.

They should’ve pushed him. Done us all a favour.

Nice they got Tanya, Rainie and Cora back for Abi’s passing. Such a stupid decision to kill her off. Glad she got silent credits. They should have done it at 8:28 which was the time it aired.

A shame her last episode was interspliced with those awful Tiffany scenes. Whitney and her false nails....pathetic.

Agreed. Get rid of the Tiffany scenes and that would’ve been perfect. I did like Whitney being quite maternal, shame TJ didn’t stay - he seemed fit.

Amazing performances from the cast. Loved the end credits, can’t remembwr the last time they used the actual Julia’s Theme though.

I loved the episode. To me it showed how weird grief is. For one family it's a life changing night. For another it's just another day. I quite liked the juxtaposition

I’m so glad they got Tanya back. The episode would’ve been weird and awkward without her. I don’t even care if she’s not at the funeral, at least she was there for the death.

You’re giving the writers too much credit!

I love how Max thinks putting a black hoodie on makes him invisible.

What TJ did to his beans on toast was minging.

Abi's "summer tunes of 2010" were a bit 2009 for my liking! Where was Stereo Love or Memories?

Amazing to see Rainie! LOVED her stint in it and she was such a strong character. I wish her and Cora would permanently move back to the square.

I found Abi's final scenes emotional and the silent ending was perfect.

I'd have preferred Julia's Theme though. Gets me every time (when done right)

Ditto, but the silence was haunting

Me too, I’d have shed some more tears at that.

I knew someone would have made it happen, literally on the same day it aired

Because the scene wasn’t made for Julia’s theme, it doesn’t really work. If they had planned to use it, the camera work would have been much different.

^ So many emotions. I hope there's one of Denise throwing out her pasta.
