Phelan’s deadly plans… Corrie
Phelan comes to a Final decision about dealing with his hostages! and, yes, there’s more than one! and he has that gun, too...
story so far
Pat Phelan is not a man to cross. Just ask his desperate cellar-dwelling hostage, Andy Carver! There was good news for Andy, though, who offered to commit a crime for Phelan to secure his freedom. Phelan pondered the deal, then promised Andy he’d soon be free and, chillingly, he revealed he had a replacement hostage lined up… But who?
Recently, the bully-boy builder has warned Daniel Osbourne not to poke his nose into his business, and he discovered Mrs Mcardle, the sweet old lady Daniel visited, was the mum of his former business associate, Vinny Ashford.
Vinny now knows that Phelan knows who his mum is and where she is… and there’s a serious score to settle after Vinny ripped him off and fled the UK.
Phelan’s also been polishing that gun and he’s hidden it at No 11. And we don’t think he’s done that because he plans to give it to his wife Eileen as an early Christmas present!
It looks like Vinny could be the new hostage when the concerned con man arrives to see his mum.
‘Vinny calls at the care home, but there’s no sign of his mother,’ reveals our insider at Corrie. ‘Instead, he sees the one man he wished he’d never see again!’ And he’s not there for a catch-up over a cup of tea! ‘Phelan doesn’t waste any time with niceties and he warns Vinny that he won’t see his mother again... unless he pays him back all the money he stole from him,’ continues our source.
Elsewhere, it seems there’s major trouble brewing closer to home when Anna Windass and Phelan’s daughter, Nicola Rubenstein, find themselves both waiting at the hospital.
‘Nicola warms to Anna and she reveals she’s pregnant,’ says our insider. ‘Anna then reveals the truth about how Phelan forced her to have sex.’
Nicola, of course, has heard Anna badmouth her dad before. But Anna’s story suddenly gains new credibility when Nicola visits her mum’s old friend, Lydia, who tells her Phelan raped her mother, too.
Later, Phelan returns from seeing Vinny and finds Nicola upset. Then he finds out why when Nicola reveals what she knows…
Now that Nicola knows what type of man he is, is Phelan about lose the daughter he’s just found? And does that mean Phelan will take desperate steps to ensure no more murky skeletons can come crawling out of that very large closet he owns that is filled with them?
We’re told that Vinny is left yelling for help and a terrified Andy’s left cowering in the van…
And that doesn’t sound very good!
Corrie are keeping details of exactly who ends up in the cellar as Andy’s replacement strictly under wraps. But viewers are promised ‘a dramatic week of episodes’ as ‘Phelan adds to his hostage tally’, before taking ‘revenge on one who previously wronged him’.
Our insider also reveals: ‘Phelan makes a final decision about the future of his hostages!’
That clearly means there’s now more than one and, to us, that ‘final’ could well suggest ‘fatal’. We reckon that gun is about to get fired. As we report on pages 12 and 13, he causes yet more misery for Anna by framing her for attempted murder! So we reckon it’s not her. Not yet… And we don’t think he’ll kill Nicola. So that leaves Andy, Daniel, Vinny’s mum and Vinny… and we don’t rate their chances of survival. Stay tuned! This could be the soap Halloween chiller to end them all!
