The End Of Stephen Is Just The Beginning For Peter
A thrilling week of Coronation Street episodes came to a climax tonight as stunned viewers saw evil killer Stephen Reid (Todd Boyce) leave the show in a body bag, whilst discovering cabby Tim Metcalfe (Joe Duttine) could still be alive!
As a desperate Stephen was cornered in the Rovers by partner Jenny (Sally Ann Matthews) and niece Sarah (Tina O’Brien) we saw him bash Sarah over the head with a bottle.
A final showdown with Jenny then led to him holding her hostage during his bid to escape before being mown down in a car by Peter Barlow (Chris Gascoyne), moments after he’d set Jenny free.
Then as the audience was still reeling from the shock of Stephen’s death, with mum Audrey (Sue Nicholls) crouched over him, another bombshell was dropped as Tim, who’d been attacked by Stephen earlier in the week and his lifeless body dumped in the boot of his taxi, opened his eyes
When the drama resumes on Monday viewers will be on the edge of their seats as they wait to see if anyone can reach a battered and dehydrated Tim in time as he fights for his life, while DS Swain (Vicky Myers) steps up her investigation into the goings on in Weatherfield, wondering if the crash was in fact a premeditated killing by Peter.
Will Tim be found before it’s too late? Will Underworld’s stolen money be found before the business collapses and will Peter be arrested for murder?
Tune in on Monday to find out!
