AFTER killing Leo Thompkins, Stephen Reid is trying to lay low to keep all his secrets under wraps.
Unfortunately, one Coronation Street resident gets to the truth… and they pay the price.
Stephen Reid has been trying to stay out of trouble
But he strikes again
Teddy Thompkins pays the price for getting to the truth
The businessman played by Canadian actor Todd Boyce first began to try and steal money from those closest to him.
But as his web of lies grew, he ended up resorting to murder to keep his scheming secret.
As mentioned above, Stephen has been trying to stay out of trouble following Leo’s death.
However, Elaine Metcalfe (portrayed by Paula Wilcox) got close to the truth and he appealed to her feelings for him.
Coming up on ITV, Stephen tells his sister Gail Platt (Helen Worth) he’s worried that Elaine might be reading too much into their budding friendship while in the Rovers.
Teddy Thompkins (Grant Burgin) overhears this and parks himself at Stephen and Elaine’s table.
Elaine is miffed at the intrusion but Stephen is secretly grateful for his intervention.
Teddy explains to Stephen he’d wanted to come to his rescue after hearing what he told Gail.
But as Stephen shows his gratitude with a round of drinks, Teddy suddenly remembers something about his recent accident.
In later scenes, just as Teddy speaks about his upcoming stay in Canada in a bid to find his son Leo, he decides to give up on the trip much to Stephen’s relief.
Billy Mayhew (Daniel Brocklebank) says something to Teddy which triggers a memory… and soon, he remembers everything.
As Stephen heads out of the Underworld factory, Teddy approaches him, revealing what he knows and accusing him of having done something to Leo.
Teddy grows increasingly angry, revealing he remembers every word of their conversation prior to his accident.
Stephen is walking on thin ice and leads Teddy into the factory, suggesting they can talk inside.
In the office, Teddy accuses Stephen of stopping him from going to Canada because he killed Leo to have Jenny Connor for himself.
Teddy vows to report him to the police – but Stephen whacks him over the head.
It quickly becomes clear that Stephen has killed again.
What will he do?
Coronation Street airs Monday, Wednesday and Friday on ITV.
