Driven to extremes
David gets into gear to see off Kylie’s killer, Clayton
t’s unhinged David at full throttle this week, as he plots to make violent thug Clayton pay the ultimate price for murdering his wife. He’ll stop at nothing to get justice – even if it means losing his own life in the process.
‘David made two promises to Kylie,’ explains Jack P Shepherd, who plays the grieving hairdresser. ‘He promised he would look after the kids and bring them up well, but he also vowed revenge on the people who murdered her. David believes he’s not breaking either promise because the children will be looked after by Gail and Nick. So, for him, it’s win-win.’
His plan starts to take shape when he bolts out of the salon – leaving a customer midappointment – and heads to the
Icourt where Clayton is due to stand trial next week. His mental cogs turn as he watches a prison van pull up.
Back home, Gail’s bemused as an upbeat David makes tea and plays games with Max and
Lily, and she later asks her son where he’s been disappearing to.
David covers and, confident he’s got her off his back, he borrows Nick’s car and returns to the court. There, he finetunes his plan, before heading to the garage and making Tyrone, Freddie and Luke an offer they can’t refuse.
Gail is livid with David when she gets a call from the school to say that Max has wet himself – she thinks it’s about time David focused on the kids. She finally discovers the chilling truth behind his behaviour when she opens his laptop and finds a ‘farewell’ video on it.
Can she and the rest of the family stop David in his tracks before it’s too late? Just when it looked like Sarah and Gary were going to become Weatherfield’s newest couple and we’d have to start calling them ‘Sary’, the single mum finds Bethany’s diet pills and, suddenly, everything changes. As the teenager admits she took the medication despite Gary warning her not to, Sarah’s appalled to realise that her potential new boyfriend knew what was going on, and rails at him for keeping her in the dark. Later, Izzy can’t help noticing when Sarah gives Gary the cold shoulder and, after he explains to his ex what’s happened, she corners Sarah and puts in a good word for the ginger gym manager. As she stresses that he did what he did with the best of intentions, can Sarah bring herself to forgive and forget?
Road rage: Will David take his own life and a deadly revenge?
