In November 2018, Elsa traced husband Nick to Weatherfield after he pretended that his mother, Gail Rodwell, had fallen ill. When Nick found Elsa knocking at the door of 8 Coronation Street, he was able to quickly move her away, without his family learning the truth of his other life, by inviting her for a drink at Speed Daal.
While Elsa tried to pry Nick for answers about why he had been acting so secretively she was shocked when he told her that he wanted a divorce. Nick denied Elsa's suggestions that he had been seeing another woman, despite the fact he was currently harbouring feelings for his ex-wife Leanne Battersby, and explained that his reasons for wanting a divorce was because the pair had been arguing a lot recently and that he felt they had rushed into marriage too quickly.
Elsa decided to return to Nottingham alone, after Nick revealed that he planned to allow her to keep the entire share of their restaurant. However, she witnessed Nick's business partner Carla Connor rummaging through his car and confronted her - believing her to be having an affair with him. Carla was able to put Elsa straight but confronted Nick about his lies and gave him the ultimatum - to sell her his share of Underworld or have his secret life exposed to his Leanne and his family.
