Now that Pat Phelan has disowned his daughter Nicola Rubinstein in Coronation Street, he has decided that the only person he can trust is his wife Eileen. But even she could be about to turn on him when she goes to visit Nicola in hospital and hears some home truths.
Phelan was gutted to learn that Nicola had been plotting with Gary Windass to bring him down – and that she had also been harbouring Seb Franklin, believing his accusations that Phelan killed Luke Britton.
He told her that he never wanted to see her again and when he shared the tale of what had happened with Eileen, he added that Nicola, Seb and Gary can all go to hell.
Feeling annoyed on Phelan’s behalf, Eileen decides to pay a visit to Nicola and finds Gary and Seb already there at her bedside. As she confronts Nicola over lying to her and Phelan while staying in their house, Nicola fires back with what Eileen needs to know about her husband.
With Eileen standing before three people all saying the same thing about the man that she married, will Eileen finally start to doubt her husband and realise the awful truth about him? Or will Phelan’s spell on her continue to overpower any other logic?
In the future, a tense stand off awaits Phelan and Eileen as dramatic pictures showed them arguing by a body of water. And rumours are rife that Eileen could even push wicked Phelan to his death…
