Coronation Street Wiki


While Gerry tries to get a drunk out of The Hour Glass, Liz gives him the slip. He follows her through the back streets and alleyways but she has nowhere to go as he has her car keys. Ken tells Sue he needs his teaching salary to keep up his trips to see Daniel. He intends to hang on to his job for as long as he can. Terrified Liz hides in the alleyways in a builders' skip as Gerry searches for her. He gets into her car and tries to run her over when she emerges but she dodges the car. Tricia brings Ray Thorpe home after meeting him at a pub. Their arrival wakes Jack who sees Ray off. Becky starts work as a papergirl at The Kabin. Jack tells Vera that maybe Tricia's friend Ray is Brad's real father. Ken goes to see Alf but he is out organising the council's Millennium celebrations. He tells Audrey he needs his job and she promises she'll have a quiet word. Liz spends the night on a bus going to and from Derby. She returns to the Street and begs Deirdre to let her stay at her flat but she refuses to help as criminals are involved and advises her to go to the police. Liz turns to Jim for help. When he sees she is frightened he brings her into the house. They are startled when Gerry comes through the back door with a sawn-off shotgun.
