Carla Connor (Alison King) confessed to Ken (William Roache) and Peter Barlow (Chris Gascoyne) in a scene from a Coronation Street episode last year that she isn’t entirely sure about Stephen Reid (Todd Boyce).
We now know that Stephen is a dangerous and sinister man because of this moment, which took place before Leo (Joe Frost) was murdered. Carla will soon discover out for herself.
The dynamic between Stephen and Carla is interesting. When Stephen came back, he made every effort to enter the Underworld through the main entrance.
He made use of his relationship with Sarah (Tina O’Brien) to his advantage, but Carla, who was in charge, had the final say and was adamant that working with family wasn’t a smart idea.
According to recent hints from Corrie head Iain MacLeod, that is about to change as 2023 approaches:
Stephen believes that landing a job at Underworld and unseating Carla, the current queen of the pile, will be his first step back up the ladder to the top of the global rag trade.
The viewers already know that Stephen has killed someone, so when Carla has Stephen make the tea and undercuts him in front of the clients, she is unintentionally stirring up psychological warfare between those two.
All the hornets do eventually emerge, but probably not in the way you anticipate, he continued.
“I’ll eat my hat if anyone guesses what Stephen does to Carla!” I would be really astonished if anyone saw his scheme coming over the hill because it is so bizarre and sinister.
