Coronation Street serial killer Stephen Reid exposed in Super Soap Week | The Sun

THE serial killer's reign of terror draws to a close as Weatherfield residents start off a new Super Soap Week.

All hell breaks loose in Coronation Street with Stephen Reid's secrets coming out in the open. Will he manage to escape?

Three lives have been brutally taken by the businessman portrayed by Todd Boyce in the course of a year.

Unfortunately for the serial killer, secrets rarely remain under wraps forever in the ITV show.

Coming up next week, as a new day dawns in Weatherfield, Stephen is planning his escape from the cobbles and the trail of dead bodies he has left behind.

Stephen suggested to his other half Jenny Connor (Sally Ann Matthews) that they move away together in Thailand as she would no longer be at the helm of the Rovers Return inn.

But he is completely unaware that fellow residents are putting together the pieces of a blood-curdling jigsaw puzzle, one that could leave him seeing out his days behind bars and not running on a sun-soaked beach.

A frustrated Carla Connor (Alison King) is correctly convinced Stephen dosed her up on LSD but without evidence the  police can’t prove it.

When she finds a print out of one way tickets to Thailand in the office printer, she convinces DS Swain that Stephen is a flight risk.

Ignoring Swain’s insistence that she tell no one Carla explains to Jenny that the police are investigating Stephen and implores her not to go to Thailand with him, as she could be running off with a murderer – how will she react?

Meanwhile, Tim Metcalfe (Joe Duttine) is distracted from Sally’s plans for their wedding anniversary when a passing mention from Brian Packham of Stephen’s interest in the canal dredging project gets his cogs whirring.

On the canal towpath, Tim finds a discarded boat hook and starts poking about in the water.

He's horrified when a corpse's hand floats to the surface.

Fleeing back to his cab, Tim dials 999 and reports finding a dead body. 

But the phone cuts out and before he can call back, Tim’s aghast when Stephen climbs into the back seat of the cab.

As Stephen tries to strangle him with a tie, Tim makes a bid for freedom but trips on his shoelace and, as he clambers to his feet, he’s knocked unconscious by Stephen with a brick.

A furious Sally (Sally Dynevor) assumes that Tim has gone to the county match with Kevin while her husband is actually fighting for his life in the boot of his car which is being doused in petrol.

In later on, Stephen arrives back on the cobbles smoothly bypassing Jenny and heads straight for a shower to wash away all traces of blood and fuel before calling the airline to confirm his flight for tomorrow.

Stephen then tricks an oblivious Michael into enabling him to transfer the full balance of Underworld’s account into a bogus one he has set up.

Carla is shocked when she gets a notification of the transfer.

The Platt family are stunned when Sarah (Tina O'Brien) breaks the news of Stephen defrauding Audrey Roberts (Sue Nicholls) and drugging Carla.
