A horrific event in Coronation Street is set to open Carla Connors eyes to the fact that she still has strong feelings for her ex Peter Barlow – when he is shot on the steps of Underworld.
As she is given the fright of her life when he falls to the ground before her, Carla realises the depth of her feelings for the man she used to love – as Michelle points out that its clear as day what she feels, will Carla finally come clean leading to a reunion?
Before this, Carla puts Peter to the test by deliberately inviting him to interview a machinist candidate who bears a striking resemblance to the late Tina McIntyre, the woman he had an affair with behind Carlas back.
As Carla watches his behaviour intently to see signs of flirting or the old womanising Peter who caused the breakdown of the relationship, will Carla be satisfied that he has passed the test? The fact she would pull a stunt like this in the first place surely proves that her heart is still with Peter and she is at the very least contemplating giving him another chance.
That option may well be taken away from her though as Tyler, the young thug who is tormenting and threatening Simon, turns up in a car and points a gun towards Underworld after intimidating Peters son.
A shot rings out and hits Peter in the chest and Carla is frantic and worried about Peter. Will he survive? And will Carla be by his side after the huge scare?
