Peter Barlow is on a one man mission to get out of Underworld and open a pool hall on Victoria Street and this means that Carla Connor is about to be left with an unexpected business partner at the factory. But when Peter discovers that Carla still has feelings for him, he is floored and realises that his actions at the factory may have ruined his chances of winning her back.
Carla got wind of Peters intentions when she found him having a meeting with an Underworld rival who was interested in buying his shares. Carla shot this down and told Peter they need to trust each other and later, she admitted to her dad Johnny that she is still in love with her ex.
Peter reveals his plans to Adam to open the new business, oblivious to what Carla has discovered about where her heart lies but when Johnny fills Peter in that Carla was hoping they could be more than business partners, Peter realises that he could have made a big mistake. He asks Carla outright if she still has feelings for him but what will she say?
Later it transpires that Nick Tilsley of all people is the one who has bought into Underworld and Carla is seething – especially when she does some digging and finds that Nick is hiding some secrets with a mysterious woman called Elsa.
As Nicks double life starts to fall apart, Elsa arrives on the street and confronts Carla, who introduces herself as Nicks business partner. But what does Elsa want and will Carla drop Nick in it with Leanne?
