Ali Neesons path to self destruction continues in Coronation Street as his turmoil over the death of Ronan in the car crash leads him to take shocking action. But when he gets drunk and makes a move on his brothers girlfriend Bethany Platt, will Ryan Connor discover the shocking truth?
Struggling to sleep, Ali gets Moira Pollock to let him into the surgery where he helps himself to some anti depressants. Later, he then ends up getting sozzled in the bistro and he flirts with Bethany which causes Ryan to lose his cool and go for him.
Michelle and Robert arrive back to the bar and find the brothers close to fisticuffs and when Ali storms out, Ryan wants to get to the bottom of what is going on with him. And when Robert then lets something slip, it seems like Ryan may soon discover that Ali was the one who killed Ronan.
Things are about to get even worse for Ali – after he tells Michelle to leave him alone, he deliberately picks a fight with two bikers who seem like they can handle themselves in a bout. It goes as well as youd expect and soon Ali is left beaten up.
Ryan intervenes and finds Ali injured but will he confront him over what he knows? And will Ryan be there to support his brother or is their fraught relationship set to take another big hit?
