Coronation Street Wiki


Part One: Kai gets a tip-off from an inmate about another dealer starting up on the wing. Simon tries to persuade Sam that what he witnessed was just him, Jacob and the other lad pranking each other. Sam is sceptical but lets him pick up his bag from Natasha's house. Asha tries to fix up a date with Nina but the girl already has plans to go bat-watching with Roy. Nina dissuades Asha from coming along, saying she'd find it boring. Sleep-deprived from living at the crowded No.5, Paul begins flat-hunting. Kai accuses Johnny of being the dealer. Johnny explains that the pills he saw were his MS medication, with Gary backing up his claim. Nina hopes to design clothes professionally. Nick gets a call from Sam's teacher saying he's had a meltdown and hurt another pupil. Simon recovers the bag and tells Jacob he's good for the next delivery.

Part Two: Sam explains to Nick that he threw an exercise book and hit the other boy by accident. Nick is concerned by his angry outburst as it's not like him. The boy scurries into the toilet when Jacob enters the cafe. Not believing Johnny's cover story, Kai thumps the landlord for stepping onto his patch. Amy lets Nina know that Asha has taken her rejection to heart. Paul can't afford to rent his own place. Sam refuses to come out of hiding until he's assured that Jacob has left. Nick asks why he's so scared and gets the full story from him. Tim tells Adam that he wants everything Geoff left him to go to Yasmeen instead. Adam explains that legally it has to pass through him first. Nick is horrified by what Sam tells him and takes the boy to repeat the story to Leanne. Elaine mentions to Alya that Yasmeen's inheritance has gone to Tim. In front of Simon, Nick tells Leanne that Jacob threatened to set a boy on fire. Simon repeats his assertion that it was a joke and no one was hurt. Leanne asks him outright if there's any truth in what Sam is saying.
