In Coronation Street, Stephen Reid (Todd Boyce) is finally feeling the walls closing in.
On the property Ed (Trevor Michael Georges) and Ronnie (Vinta Morgan) just purchased to construct several homes, a dead body was discovered this week.
In the ITV soap opera’s episode airing on Wednesday, September 20, Craig (Colson Smith) came at the bar and told Jenny (Sally Ann Matthews) that the body was that of Leo, her ex-boyfriend.
Jenny’s head was spinning as she disintegrated. She had believed for the better part of a year that Leo had left for Canada and just didn’t want to be with her. All Stephen could do was console and support her while she sobbed uncontrollably.
Craig informed Stephen that it would be best to make statements as soon as possible just before he left the bar. Leo’s final actions included striking Stephen in the face because he had affections for Jenny, which spurred Tim (Joe Duttine) to speak out.
Stephen had to go to the station to provide a statement as a result of this. Thankfully, he was able to escape, but once at home, he realized the horror had only just begun.
Stephen was in bed when night fell and had memories to his three killings.
He woke up in the early morning and went to the canal. Teddy, who was also murdered by Stephen, is believed to be inside of a roofbox that is submerged in the water.
Stephen didn’t realize Tim, who was wrapping up a night shift, had seen him as he prodded about with a branch.
Tim crept over to observe Stephen, but he was stopped when his phone rang.
Stephen left without noticing Tim, but considering that subsequent images will capture the moment the serial murderer tries to strangle the taxi driver, will Tim eventually learn the truth before we expect?
