Topp Boyce’s murderer Stephen Reid has devised a cunning strategy to dethrone Carla Barlow (Alison King) from her Underworld reign on Coronation Street.
In a brand-new spoiler clip, he laced her drink with LSD to carry out his plan.
Stephen’s apparent goal is to persuade people that Carla’s psychosis has resurfaced, giving him the opportunity to intervene and seize control of the factory.
After the factory roof fell in 2019, killing Rana Habeeb (Bhavna Limbacchia) and injuring Sally Metcalfe, Carla experienced psychosis (Sally Dynevor).
This coming Wednesday, February 15, Stephen takes action, but it appears that he may have already encountered a snag when Sean Tully (Antony Cotton) catches him in the process.
Sean is utterly shocked to witness a “up himself” Stephen brewing coffee for everyone. He is unaware of the evil motivation behind his charity.
Stephen issues a scary warning to avoid getting on Sean’s bad side as he makes fun of him for being demoted to office manager.
Will Stephen’s next victim be Sean?
Stephen uses Sean’s absence as a chance to inject the pills into Carla’s drink. He then calls Carla over and watches her sip.
Stephen’s nefarious scheme will soon start to take shape once the pills start to take effect.
These scenes will be shown on Coronation Street on Wednesday, February 15 at 8 p.m. on ITV1 and ITVX.
