Coronation Street Fans Predict Peter Barlow’s Exit Storyline After Shock Arrest


Coronation Street viewers are speculating about Peter Barlow's exit storyline after his recent arrest on the popular ITV show. During the latest episode, DS Swain, played by Vicky Myers, arrested Peter for the murder of Stephen Reid, which took place during the show's Super Soap Week finale. With actor Chris Gascoyne set to leave his role as Peter, fans are wondering how his character will make his exit.

Conflicting Views on Peter's Guilt

Throughout the episode, viewers saw Peter wrestling with his conscience, unsure if he had actually committed murder or simply saved Jenny's life. Audrey Roberts, Stephen's mother, firmly believed Peter was a killer, while Sarah Platt disagreed. Rita Tanner even called Peter a "hero" for protecting Jenny by running over Stephen, who was revealed to be a serial killer.

Sally's Changing Attitude

Sally Metcalfe, initially supportive of Peter and helping to find her missing husband, Tim, became conflicted. She suggested that Peter's actions had robbed her of the chance to learn the truth about him and her husband. This change of heart was overheard by DS Swain during a conversation with Gail, who agreed that Peter had a motive for murder.

Peter's Arrest and Fan Predictions

After locating Tim, DS Swain arrested Peter at his home, suspecting him of intentionally killing Stephen. Now, fans believe that Peter will be sent to prison, leading to his departure from Weatherfield for good.
