What Is Tony Going To Do About Maria?

Hello soapsters and welcome to A Slice Of Soap!
Well guys, EastEnders’ evil Tony King has been found out and he will get his comeuppance. But how about Corrie’s villain of villains, Tony ‘JR’ Gordon? When’s he gonna get what’s coming to him? One thing’s for sure, it looks like we’ve got a little while to go before the residents of Coronation Street finally realise that they’ve got a cold-blooded fiend living in their midst. As we all know, Maria’s finally figured out that Tony had Liam murdered. But her biggest problem, however, is proving it…

Question: how does Tony solve a problem like Maria? Answer: drive her out of her mind. Gray O’ Brien – who plays the scheming murderer – says the more Maria accuses him of Liam’s murder, the more mad he makes her appear: "He’s already got under Maria’s skin, and she’s starting to doubt herself. This storyline goes on for a few weeks, and by the end of it, the entire street thinks she’s out of her tree, that she’s completely lost it. She’s doing stuff which is totally unlike Maria on her mission to prove him guilty and in doing so, she makes herself look extremely vulnerable and silly, which plays into Tony’s hands. "That’s really going to mess with her up."

I almost feel a song coming on. If you know the words to The Sound Of Music’s, How Do You Solve A Problem Like Maria? sing-along to Tony Gordon’s version….

How do you solve a problem like Maria?
How do you shut her up and send her mad?
How do you make The Street distrust Maria?
You say "she’s a nutter""
"A doo-lally mare"

Liam Connor deserved to die for Carla
Liam Connor was shaggin’ my true love
How soon can I make this work?
I don’t care if I’m a jerk
How can I keep the fools out of the way?

Oh, how do you solve a problem like Maria?
How do you shut her up and send her mad?
