GRIFF Reynolds is causing more and more trouble as time goes by in the cobbles.
Next week in Coronation Street, the extremist appears to find a new target in the form of Maria Connor.
Could Maria Connor be in danger?
Griff Reynolds has already targeted Max Turner
His motives are becoming clearer
While she was trying to get a place on the council, the local politician played by Samia Longchambon became the target of online hatred.
The harassment may have quietened down but there could be new turmoil ahead for Maria as dodgy “eco-warrior” Griff (Game of Thrones Michael Condron) tries to spread his racist views in Weatherfield.
Coming up on ITV, Griff is in his flat with Ollie, David and Spider Nugent.
He announces to them that Maria is planning to turn the community centre into a place for refugees.
In later scenes, Maria is furious to find Griff and Spider handing out leaflets claiming that refugees will be taking over the community centre at the expense of local residents.
Little does she know that Spider, portrayed by Martin Hancock, is actually an undercover police officer keeping a close eye on Griff’s activities.
As mentioned above, Maria has already been the victim of a torrent of abuse online earlier in the year.
She was even the target of a deep fake video.
But what will Griff do?
In recent scenes, the extremist was seen taking an interest in troubled Weatherfield teen Max Turner (Paddy Bever).
The lad has been thrown in a new grooming storyline after feeling isolated and vulnerable.
Max has most notably been bullied and confided in Griff who then took it upon himself to face the bullies.
How will Max’s father, David Platt (Jack P. Shepherd), react to Max spending time with Griff?
Are Max and Maria both in danger?
Griff has been successful at hiding his true agenda since first rocking up the Street but is slowly coming out publicly with his views as he recruits new members in his extremist gang.
But Roy’s Rolls owner Roy Cropper (David Neilson) embarrasses him in front of potential supporters.
Could this lead to Griff lashing out against the stalwart in the future?
Coronation Street airs from 8pm on ITV.
Max is being groomed
But could he actually join Griff’s extremist gang?
