In Coronation Street, Sarah Platt (Tina O’Brien) eventually uncovered one of Stephen Reid’s (Todd Boyce) several misdeeds by unraveling the mystery around Audrey’s (Sue Nicholls) enigmatic equity release letter.
Sarah decided to investigate the letter even though Audrey and Gail Platt (Helen Worth) were confident it was a hoax based on talks she had earlier in the day.
After the Nippersnapper order was canceled and Stephen suggested they sell the brand, Sarah and Tim Metcalfe (Joe Duttine) got into a fight. It had been an interesting day for Sarah.
Tim was forced to confess his falsehoods regarding his connection with Gabrielle Reid after learning that Sarah accepted Stephen’s judgment. He also explained how he had seduced Elaine Peacock (Paula Wilcox) by claiming to have likewise been subjected to coercive control.
Sarah realized she wanted to speak with her to explain a few things after Tim questioned why he hired her as a consultant if she had treated him so poorly.
Sarah didn’t realize that it was Stephen and not Gabrielle who had founded Seagull Ltd.
But rather than correcting her, Gabrielle merely noted that Stephen had failed to demonstrate any commitment to his family before hanging up the phone.
Sarah made the decision to learn more about the equity release after hearing all of these cautionary tales and became concerned that Stephen could actually be involved.
Stephen was rumbled after she called the company.
