Coronation Street favourite Amy Barlow landed herself in hot water once again this week in a desperate bid for justice, which could lead the beloved student to a shocking exit
Fans of Coronation Street couldn’t help but express their worries for Amy Barlow following her risky decision, which could result in her abrupt departure.
This year has been difficult for the adored character on ITV as she was sexually assaulted by her flatmate, Aaron Sandford. The stunning brunette has been working hard in recent months to combat sexual assault.
Watchers saw her take to the streets this week to protest against rape cases on the rise and soaring. However, her latest behaviour has landed her in hot water.
When the officer instructed the student to stop their demonstration on Wednesday, November 15, they threw a paint can all over his car. And on Friday, November 17, when she recently went to a nightclub, things only got worse.
Amy was not staring at the bar when viewers spotted her, but rather at a man who was drugging a woman’s drink. Fortunately, the cobbler’s favourite stopped her from sipping the spicier beverage when she accidentally bumped into her, causing her drink to spill all over her clothes.
Amy cautioned her to avoid the mystery man as she brought her to the loo to dry her top. The woman chose to exact retribution after leaving the club by making up with the handsome man—later identified as Dan—until he tampered with her drink.
The student switched their beverages to “give him a taste of his own medicine” while the attacker was away. However, things quickly got out of hand when Dan was having trouble staying aware outside the club, and she had to contact her friend Aadi Alahan to come get them.
Aadi saw something wasn’t right with the partygoer and insisted on getting them to the hospital. When the overdose caused his heart rate to drop dangerously low, nurses quickly raced to his rescue.
Amy realised at this point that what she had done might have killed him. A few hours later, the police arrived at the hospital to question the two. Aadi quickly admitted to the cops that he had poisoned himself inside the club by mistakenly ordering the wrong beverage.
According to fresh leaks, Amy’s situation will worsen when she is questioned by the police in subsequent episodes. Although it’s unclear if Dan awakens, DS Swain is committed to solving the case.
As she is questioned by detectives, she is warned her actions could land her up to five years behind bars. It didn’t take long before fans flooded to the social media platform X – formerly known as Twitter – to share their concerns online.
One user warned: “Not looking good for Amy (and Aadi) now is it? [sad emoji] #Corrie.” Another agreed: “Amy is the new female vigilante! #Corrie.”
