JUSTIN Rutherford is set to face justice for his vile deeds against Daisy Midgeley and Ryan Connor’s acid attack.
But the Coronation Street barmaid is floored when she realises she’s been betrayed by somebody who was once warning her about Justin.
Daisy Midgeley is terrified to face Justin Rutherford in court
Things are made worse when Ryan reveals somebody has betrayed them
He is just as reluctant to face Justin as Daisy
Daisy Midgeley (portrayed by Charlotte Jordan) was left traumatised by her horrific stalker ordeal which was taken to a vile level when Justin (Andrew Still) tried to throw acid in her face.
Regular ITV viewers were left with their jaws dropped when Ryan Connor (Ryan Prescott) stood between Daisy and Justin, leading to him being hospitalised and needing skin grafts.
Justin was then arrested after Daisy lured him to the hospital where the police were waiting for him and the unstable character is waiting to face justice.
The trial is fast approaching next week and Justin’s sister Karen calls at the Rovers, telling Daisy how sorry she is for Justin’s attack and how she hopes he’ll be sent down.
Daisy is touched by her support, particularly as Karen had tried to warn her about her brother’s behaviour, claiming it wasn’t the first time he’d become obsessed with somebody.
Unfortunately, not everybody is pleased about Karen’s return to the cobbles and when Ryan and Carla Connor (Alison King) spot her, a furious row erupts in the Rovers.
Fuming and throwing insults, Ryan even reminds Daisy how she had once gone out of her way to split him up from Alya.
Ryan later leaves for court just as Karen, who was supposedly on Daisy’s side, reveals that she passed on what she gleaned about the barmaid’s history of manipulation to Justin’s lawyer.
Daisy later calls at the Street Cars flat only to find out from Ryan that Karen had been spying on them all along and she’s stunned.
To make matters worse, Ryan is reluctant to face Justin in court due to Karen’s involvement and Daisy begs him to reconsider as, without his evidence, Justin could walk free.
Extremely tense court scenes follow as Daisy grows increasingly stressed at the thought of facing her tormentor in court without Ryan to back her up.
Terrified Justin could roam free in Weatherfield and get revenge on her, she crumbles and is painted as highly strung and unreliable by the defence team.
Will Karen’s betrayal and Ryan’s absence result in Daisy living in fear for the rest of her time in the Street?
Will Justin get the comeuppance he deserves?
Coronation Street airs every Monday, Wednesday and Friday from 8pm on ITV.
