David Platt and Josh Tucker are set for a final showdown in Coronation Street next week as the male rape storyline reaches its dramatic conclusion – but will David find closure in his revenge and how far is he prepared to go?
Josh gloated over David when the police had insufficient evidence to charge him for the rape but since he has been gone, David has been rebuilding his life with the help of the support network around him.
We have seen him start to smile and embrace life again after his darkest times but he was sent back down when he discovered that Billy Mayhew was allowing Josh to stay at his flat as he had nowhere to go after leaving hospital.
David made his feelings clear – he didnt want his attacker on the street – and Billy told Josh that he had to leave. This leaves Josh to seek David out at the salon but could this drive David over the edge?
Locking up the salon, David drags Josh to his car and pushes him inside before speeding off while Billy anxiously calls after him, not sure what he is planning.
As David confronts Josh for the final time, how will the villain make his departure and will David finally get him to confess? Or is he planning something even more sinister to get rid of Josh forever?
