In the wake of the horrific attack at Speed Daal, during which Alya Nazir (Sair Khan) was seriously injured by a stabbing incident, Max Turner (Paddy Bever) will soon bear the repercussions of his recent actions in Coronation Street as he is sentenced to six months in jail.
The videos Max made inciting hate against refugees and other groups played a significant role in the events that took place, even though he wasn’t the one brandishing the knife.
Max is taken away to a secure training facility just as it seems like things can’t get any worse for him after receiving the custodial term. However, a group of young men make it obvious that they intend to make his life miserable when he gets there.
David is at home now. Max has indicated he doesn’t want him to come, so Jack P. Shepherd (the boy’s father) is gravely concerned about his boy. Daniel (Rob Mallard), a staff member at the STC, is horrified to see Max with cuts and bruises on his face after David asks him to see how Max is coping.
When June, an officer at the STC, calls David to inform him that Max has facial injuries, David is horrified.
Following this, David asks Alya if she’d think about visiting Max in jail, and she says yes.
After this visit, a scared and lonely Max phones David, who is pleased to hear that his son still wants him to visit. Max opens up about the wrong path his life took that resulted in Alya getting injured and him being sent to the STC.
But how much risk does Max still face from the guys who beat him up?
