Stephen's final rampage, Sally grieves for Tim and killer showdowns in Corrie

It’s the week that every Coronation Street fan has been waiting for – the end is nigh for killer Stephen Reid (Todd Boyce), and the climax plays out in spectacular circumstances.

Special episodes focused entirely on the story see Stephen’s actions finally come back to haunt him – but several fresh victims are at serious risk before he goes.

With the truth dawning on those he has wronged, he knows he has to escape Weatherfield and now.

But it won’t be that simple!

Carla Connor (Alison King) has his number over the LSD spiking, and it leads to a furious attack from Peter Barlow (Chris Gascoyne).

Jenny Connor (Sally Ann Matthews) wants answers, and the Platts are thrown into crisis by what they discover.

Elsewhere, fears mount for Sally Metcalfe (Sally Dynevor) with Tim (Joe Duttine) missing after a confrontation with Stephen.

Has Stephen killed again, for the last time?

Monday October 9

As a new day dawns in Weatherfield, Stephen is planning his escape from the cobbles and the trail of dead bodies, unaware that, the residents of Coronation Street are putting together the pieces of a rather shocking jigsaw puzzle, one that could leave him seeing out his days behind bars, not running one on a beach.

As he slowly realises that his time might be up, and with nothing to lose, he determines to make a final bid for freedom and will stop anyone that gets in his way.

A frustrated Carla is 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. 

Meanwhile Tim is distracted from Sally’s plans for their wedding anniversary when a passing mention from Brian of Stephen’s interest in the canal dredging project gets the cogs whirring.

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

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.

As a furious Sally assumes that Tim has gone to the county match with Kevin, her husband is actually fighting for his life in the boot of his car which is being doused in petrol. Has Stephen killed again?

A seemingly calm and collected 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.

Meanwhile police lift the roof box from the murky waters of the canal, Craig and Swain shudder to see it contains human remains.

Sally starts to panic when Kevin tells her that Tim did not go to the match with him and Kirk.

Meanwhile at the factory a calm and collected Stephen 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 breaks the news of Stephen defrauding Audrey and drugging Carla.

As Stephen leaves his flat he is attacked by Peter but Audrey arrives and sends Peter packing. Stephen’s relief turns to horror when Audrey accuses him of stealing her house. How will Stephen respond?

DS Swain learns that Stephen brought forward his flight from Manchester to Bangkok to today and hurries to the airport to intercept him. Will she get there in time?

Elaine reports that the Platts believe Stephen murdered anyone who got in his way.  Realising Tim was one such person, Sally feels sick.

As the shocked residents realise that they have a murderer in their midst the hunt is on to find Stephen before he can add to his death toll – or are they too late?
