The sweet, caring, lovable* Tracy is gone. Tracy's out for revenge and Carla's in her sights! Kate Ford hints at what's next!
(*well she likes to think so.)
How does Tracy feel when she hears the news about Carla and Robert’s night of passion?
She is absolutely raging. Her blood turns cold. Tracy cannot feel wronged again by this woman, she is gobsmacked that Carla has ruined things for her once again. Tracy is completely blindsided by her own self importance, she will be quick to forget about all the things she has done to Carla in the past and will see this as yet another example of Carla ruining her life.
Why does Tracy’s jealousy keep getting the better of her?
Tracy is an inherently jealous person, she always wants more and she can never be happy with her lot. She’s very bitter and deep down, I think she’s a very insecure person. She can’t help herself at all and her jealousy leads her to destruction time and time again.
What’s going through Tracy’s mind when she goes to confront Carla in the Bistro?
After she’s heard the conversation between Carla and Robert, Tracy’s mind is racing and she can’t think straight. She’s not sure what to do at first. She can’t let Carla get away with this - she’s seen red and feels completely horrified that Carla has ‘wronged’ her again.
How does she feel about leaving poor Carla in grave danger? Would she really abandon her?
Yes course she would! Tracy feels she’s the one who has been badly done to, Carla’s the one who has wronged her. Ultimately there’s no way Tracy would sacrifice herself for her, given what she’s just heard. Deep down she probably knows that she shouldn’t have left Carla but she’s selfish, she wasn’t about to put herself in danger.
Todd and Tracy have been growing closer – can she trust him to keep quiet?
Todd and Tracy are similar in many ways. As much as they wind each other up I think he’s the closest thing she has to having a ‘friend’. I think Todd knows better than to cross Tracy - he’s seen what she’s capable of!
Why doesn’t Tracy confront Robert about his cheating ways?
As reactive as Tracy can be, she often bides her time when it comes to revenge. She’s also trapped between a rock and a hard place because if she tells Robert she knows about him and Carla, he’ll find out she left her alone with the thugs in the Bistro...
Can you see a happy ever after for Robert and Tracy?
It’s Tracy Barlow, I doubt it! He’s the closest thing she will ever get to ‘normality’ and having something stable, Robert has been great for Tracy after everything that’s happened in the past year, especially with losing her mum, so I’d like to see them have some happiness - but Tracy has a habit of spoiling things!
Would she take him back?
I think there’s a part of her that is guilty about visiting Rob - it probably weighs heavy that she told Rob. I think she knows she’s got it made with Robert and he’s the best thing to happen to her in a long time so she probably would be devastated if he walked out on her.
Tracy’s promised to take her revenge on Carla – how low is she set to scoop?
She can always think of something - although leaving her at the mercy of the thugs in the Bistro was pretty low! Ultimately she will stew on it until the time is right... Carla won’t get away with crossing her again.
Have you missed Tracy's bad behaviour?
Tracy’s always bad! Even when she’s behaving, she’s always winding someone up or being nasty to someone else. There’ll always be something that Tracy has to fight about. It’ll be interesting to see how she makes Carla pay for the latest hit!
