Viewers of the ITV soap opera think Audrey Roberts (played by Sue Nicholls) may potentially be murdered by her own son if she hadn’t already experienced enough recently. Fans of Coronation Street think they have uncovered Stephen Reid’s (Todd Boyce) bizarre scheme after a lot of shady activities.
Conman Stephen learned in Wednesday’s episode that his mother would no longer be setting up a trust fund for her loved ones, preferring to use a standard will instead.
He was depending on gaining control of that cash to keep himself afloat as he struggles with hidden financial problems.
When he informed Audrey that he did not want to be included in any will and that he did not require any financial assistance, his plan seemed to go awry.
Stephen’s unexpected purchase of a new suit from the charity store added to the impression that he was up to something strange.
When fans realized that Imran (Charlie de Melo), who died in a vehicle accident, was the former owner of the outfit, this emotion among viewers grew.
Many others started to put together Stephen’s strategy right away, thinking he was planning to murder Audrey and make it appear like an accident.
Stephen was the subject of many conspiracy theories on Twitter, and Beardy Bill posted: “Stephen buying a burner outfit before he kills Audrey.”
“Stephen the snake is going to poison Aud and make it appear as though she’s taken another overdose,” Amie continued.
Michelle said “Before Audrey can draft a new will, Stephen is going to kill her! Make it appear like a second overdose. B*d!”
But since he won’t be included in her will, he should move quickly before she drafts it, Erin continued.
On Wednesday’s episode, Stephen was seen acting out in a fit of rage, throwing trash cans and swinging at anything he could find in the brewery’s back.
Fans are hopeful that David Platt, Audrey’s grandson, would discover Stephen’s scheme and foil it before it’s too late (Jack P Shepherd).
I really hope David finds him before that can happen and gives him a good hiding for being such a wimp, wrote Coronation Street fan Louise in a tweet.
Viewers will be hoping Audrey’s tenure on the cobbles is not sealed in the most wicked way imaginable because she has had a turbulent experience.
In some of the ITV soap’s most heartbreaking sequences, Audrey attempted suicide due to mental health issues.
But after lunch, she confided in her pals, and they swore to make sure she never again felt alone.
Sue Nicholls, an actress, has previously discussed Audrey’s plot and expressed hope that it may encourage older people to be more open.
The necessity of being able to talk to people you trust about how you feel, she added, is the message she wants readers to take away from this plot.
“The younger generation may occasionally believe that anyone above the age of 70 is incapable of making decisions, which can cause older individuals to lose their sense of purpose and feel fairly useless.”
