The health of numerous Coronation Street characters is in danger in the next episodes as Chesney Brown’s (Sam Aston) concerns for Gemma Winter (Dolly-Rose Campbell) grow and Cassie Plummer’s (Claire Sweeney) life is in danger.
Despite Tyrone Dobbs’ (Alan Halsall) best efforts to help Cassie adjust to her new life in Weatherfield, her addiction still consumes her.
She receives a new job and a lot of support, but Dean, a drug dealer, continues to be a pain in her side. This causes her to steal from her house and place of employment before fainting from an overdose and being brought to the hospital.
She then proceeds to tell tales about her background, which only helps to cause a further rift between Tyrone and Evelyn (Maureen Lipman), bringing even more sadness to Tyrone’s door.
In another scene, Gemma is in crisis mode following Henry Newton’s (George Banks) passionate declaration of undying love.
She is also juggling a lot since she is attempting to help her dying brother Paul Foreman (Peter Ash) while also caring for the quads.
It appears that Chesney’s concerns that her sickness could return are well-founded.
Additionally, the kids on Street are in disarray as Max Turner (Paddy Bever) is maybe caught up in a love triangle.
After being rejected by him, Lauren (Cait Fitton) becomes furious and destroys the salon, which prompts David Platt (Jack P Shepherd) to issue a warning to his son.
