Icon of Coronation Street Audrey Roberts is about to find out just how wicked her son Stephen Reid really is, according to an yzee.uk theory that she will be forced to live on the streets as a result of his deeds.
Since his return to the cobbles, Todd Boyce’s character Stephen Reid has proven to be a master manipulator, as Coronation Street viewers are well aware. In upcoming scenes on the ITV soap, his desperate attempts to obtain his mother’s money are expected to continue. If his evil scheme to rob her succeeds, will his elderly mother be left without a roof over her head?
Next week, when David Platt (Jack P. Shepherd) begins to worry that the sinkhole in his garden is reopening, the drama on Coronation Street begins to play out.
Leo Thompkins (Joe Frost) notices Stephen’s unease when Audrey says the Platts can all stay with her.
Leo admits to Jenny Connor (Sally Ann Matthews) that he thinks Stephen is a bit strange, as if he’s concealing something.
Jenny hides her anxiety, but has Leo found out more than he thought?
After paying for a spa day the day after, Stephen checks to see if Audrey and Gail Platt (Helen Worth) have left.
Leo questions why he’s lying as he claims to have enjoyed a night in a luxurious hotel.
After returning early from her spa day, Audrey shares that she discovered an estate agent’s valuer at her house, who informed her that Stephen had scheduled the visit.
Leo listens to her with interest as Stephen is startled. Will Stephen be able to convince himself to change his mind?
As the two men exchange blows, will Leo reveal what he knows about Stephen?
Stephen is adamant that the police shouldn’t get involved despite David’s threats to do so.
Later, David interrogates Stephen regarding his decision to spend the night in his car and the reason a valuer showed up at Audrey’s house.
Leo informs Stephen that it is clear from his family’s responses that he is lying about his financial situation, and he vows to find out why.
Was Stephen intending to sell his mother’s home and leave her homeless in order to benefit himself financially?
Iain MacLeod, the head of Coronation Street, recently said: “Desperate’s the word, and as the story unfolds, he will continue to get more and more desperate and more and more dark.”
Mischievous is probably a bit too mild a word, but Machiavellian might be a better one.
“I believe he has simply injected so much otherness into the show,” the author said.
Will Audrey be able to see Stephen for who he really is before it’s too late? Audrey has been persuading herself that he is having a positive impact on her life.
If Audrey was made homeless by her son, it would be heartbreaking.
Leo might be able to reason with her before Stephen’s scheme succeeds.
