Carla confronts Coronation Street killer Stephen over drugging her | The Sun09/28/2023
TIME is ticking for Stephen Reid after his months of lies and crime finally unravel.
The Coronation Street serial killer is cornered by a vengeful Carla Connor who has managed to put two and two together.
Stephen Reid (played by Todd Boyce) rocked up the ITV cobbles in 2022, helping his mother Audrey Roberts go through a tough time.
But the businessman's intentions were finally unveiled as it became clear he was struggling for money.
In late 2022, Stephen claimed his first victim, Leo Thompkins, whose body was recently found.
Things snowballed and, after more than a year, Stephen has managed to claim a total of three lives and committed a series of villainous deeds in the cobbles.

One of them consisted of drugging Underworld factory boss Carla Connor (Alison King) in an attempt to take over the business.
Carla figured out she had been spiked with LSD earlier this year after it was believed she was going through a psychotic relapse.
Next week, Stephen's reign of terror slowly comes to an end as Carla opens the letter from the clinic confirming there were traces of LSD in her hair sample.
She tells her husband Peter Barlow (Chris Gascoyne) she thinks it was Rufus Donahue but having checked the dates of her illness it doesn’t add up as he was killed off prior to her mental breakdown and her stay in a mental health facility.

In the factory, Carla grimaces as she takes a sip of a coffee made by Michael Bailey (Ryan Russell).
When Michael apologises, and points out that normally Stephen or Sarah Platt (Tina O'Brien) make the coffee, Carla freezes as the truth dawns.
Carla drags Stephen into the office and tells him she knows he spiked her drinks with LSD and she’s going to prove it.
As Carla storms out Sarah’s unease is evident and the businesswoman hares her suspicions about Stephen with DS Swain.
But she’s frustrated when DS Swain asserts that it’s mere speculation and she needs proper evidence.
And there's another resident who is on to Stephen.
