Pat Phelan’s days could finally be numbered in Coronation Street as Eileen looks set to discover the truth about everything her killer husband has done – and it could be thanks to Seb Franklin who starts to see his employer’s true colours.
Seb is keen to move away and start afresh with his mum Abi but when she admits that her rehab has failed, they row. When Phelan gets wind of Seb’s plan to move away, he watches on with menacing intent, worried about what he will say.
Seb knows that Phelan has a gun so has he figured out that he has been responsible for several deaths? Little does Seb realise that when he handled it while drunk, his fingerprints are all over it and Phelan may well use this to his advantage.
Phelan makes it clear that he knows Seb has been snooping around and he is unnerved by the intimidating tone of the crooked builder. Seb agrees to work with Eileen at the cab office in a bid to get away from Phelan.
However, a turn of events leads to Seb telling Eileen that Phelan isn’t the man that she thinks he is and she starts to do some digging of her own – and is uncomfortable with what she then finds.
Seb then goes missing and Phelan wants to track him down but meanwhile, Eileen has secretly headed to visit Anna Windass in prison, who gives her chapter and verse on how Phelan has set her up.
Arriving home, Eileen is more unsure than ever and opens up Phelan’s toolbox, her heart in her mouth. Will she discover the gun?
And will her life be in danger if she then confronts Phelan with some accusations?
