Coronation Street viewers believe they have worked out how fan-favourite Peter Barlow will leave the heart of Weatherfield after an emotional breakdown with his wife Carla
Fans of Coronation Street are certain they have figured out how Peter Barlow is going to get off the ITV cobbles for Christmas.
On Friday, November 24, viewers caught up with the cherished character as he grappled with accepting the murder of cobbles killer Stephen Reid on the ITV soap opera. The beloved character began the day by visiting Carla in the Underworld, but it didn’t take him long to cause havoc.
He couldn’t resist asking his wife why, in the midst of helping the factory’s workers recover from the evil businessman’s robbery, she was paying Bernie and Seann but not the rest of her staff after he brought her her packed lunch. At this point, after overhearing their chat, her coworkers also demanded reimbursement.
His problems didn’t stop there, though, as he later found out from his son Simon that Dylan and Mason had taken a box of vape pens from him when he wasn’t looking. The devoted father sprang into action right away and hurried to Dylan’s house.
Peter forced Dylan to return the stolen goods after kicking down the door and throwing him against the wall after noticing the two inside. Fortunately, Sean got home in time to diffuse their argument.
At this time, Peter ran home, sobbed uncontrollably, and admitted to Carla how difficult it was for him to accept what he had done the previous month. Viewers now think they understand how the hottie will end up on the show.
Peter said that he couldn’t resist thinking back on the terrible incident when he ran Stephen over with his automobile. “Every time I open my eyes, it plays on repeat,” he begged. The only break I get is when I go to sleep, and when I wake up, it all starts over again.”
It was at this point that Carla suggested that Peter visit a counsellor to talk through his feelings and forgive himself. But the hunk quickly wrote that off and admitted that he was toying with the idea of draining a bottle of whisky.
Taking to the social media site X – formerly known as Twitter- fans shared their suspicions online. One user penned: “Ole Pete will relapse and get sent off somewhere to rehab. Pete’s exit sorted. Next! #Corrie.”
Another agreed: “Peter not getting done for killing a serial killer. He’s gonna leave the street going to rehab because he can’t get over it #Corrie.” A third echoed: “#Corrie Peter needs counselling.
A third gushed: “Oh no I can’t cope with Peter Barlow crying [five crying emojis, four heart broken emojis] this is breaking my heart [four crying emojis] #Corrie.”
