Pat Phelan appears to be about to claim more victims in Coronation Street as Faye Windass and Tim Metcalfe are forced to abandon their lives in Weatherfield, feeling too unsafe to be living across the road from the killer.
With Seb Franklin missing again and Anna incarcerated after being found guilty at trial, Phelan is cock of the walk again and is focusing on doing his best to wind his enemies up.
He has the gall to show up at Luke Britton’s funeral, which devastates an angry Steph who accuses him of blackmailing Andy Carver into torching the garage. Meanwhile, he deliberately goads Gary and even suggests that they go and enjoy a lapdance from Bethany Platt, which prompts Gary to slam Phelan against a wall.
After continuing to miss and worry about both Seb and Anna, Faye tells her dad that she can’t bear seeing the man that was behind both of their departures every day and wants to move away.
Sally is shocked as Tim packs both his and Faye’s bags and tells her that they aren’t safe with Phelan as a neighbour and they are going to stay with his dad.
Has Phelan successfully driven them out of town for good or will his growing list of enemies finally turn the fates against him?
