Coronation Street fans have predicted a shock 'murder' twist amid Liam Connor's bullying hell. During the latest trip to the cobbles, viewers were left heartbroken as the teen's ordeal at the hands of Mason Radcliffe and his friends took a terrifying twist.
Following his arrival last month, we've seen Weatherfield High student Mason leading Dylan Wilson astray and causing trouble for some of Weatherfield's residents, including Liam. And the trouble only continued during the ITV soap's episode on Wednesday night (November 22).
Liam was accused of grassing Mason up for stealing Dylan Wilson's trainers. Liam's stepfather Gary Windass threatened Mason in the previous episode, and he believed he had dealt with the problem. However, it wasn't enough to stop Mason as he once again turned on Liam over his run-in with Gary.
As Liam walked home he was cornered by Mason and his friends, including Dylan, and they soon began an attack on him, throwing items at him and pouring rubbish onto him before Liam was thrown to the ground. Liam was in tears and things only got worse as when he got up, the teenager had a knife pointed at him.
Mason threatened him with the blade before eventually letting him go. Liam later confided in younger step-brother Jake that he'd been attacked and threatened. Unbeknownst to Liam, Jake contacted the police and soon Mason was stopped in the street by PC Craig Tinker and was searched.
The knife was nowhere to be found and soon, Liam's bullying ordeal continued. He was seen lying in bed as his phone continuously pinged with messages, one showing a picture of a rat dressed in a school uniform which was said to be Liam after the police incident.
And Corrie fans are now wondering how far Gary will go to protect his step-son. @thegrimestwins3 said: "Wait until Gary finds out he won't take no bull shit Mason will be on his next murder victim list." @alastairsmith1992 commented: "Mason will be on Gary's murder list."
@plbatch56 asked: "Does Mason not know that Gary is a killer?" @trishmorell wrote: "Please don’t let this be an attempted suicide story. Gary needs to sort Mason out." @karlosj78 added: "Gary needs to sort this out quick!"
