The plot thickens as to how Rovers Return lodger Scott Emberton (Tom Roberts) is connected to Coronation Street‘s Connor circle of relatives, with a curveball idea rising he may just become the long-lost father of Carla Connor (Alison King).
Mysterious Scott has been renting a room on the Weatherfield pub since April, and it’s already been established him and landlord Johnny Connor (Richard Hawley) have historical past.
However, whilst the fellas handle an ‘old friends’ entrance in public there’s no doubt one thing sinister about their shared previous, and Johnny is so frightened of Scott being again in his existence he’s scarpered to France for a longer vacation.
RadioTimes.com has already speculated concerning the boys’ murky backstory, and you’ll learn our record of theories on what connects Scott and Johnny, however Scott’s focal point appears to be transferring clear of Johnny and in opposition to his daughter Carla.
On Wednesday 15th July, Scott riled Carla’s spouse Peter Barlow by way of telling him how he must be treating his different part, sneaking in a veiled dig about now not protective her from blackmailers Jordan and Chelsy.
With a sinister glance in his eye, Scott implied he was once the one that attacked the troublemakers, who attempted to extort money from Carla in go back for maintaining her secret she bought her frame for a spot in a squat all over her breakdown in 2019.
Viewers understand it was once Scott who secretly avenged Carla, and now the items are falling into position that it’s her who may well be the important thing to his darkish secret, fairly than Johnny. Scott has already showed to Carla he’s from the similar tough property because the extended family, and gave the impression to make some extent of claiming he knew her past due mom, Sharon Donovan.
Carla handiest learnt Johnny was once her organic father a couple of years again, when it emerged his affair with Sharon had led to the demise of his past due spouse Louisa, who was once so stunned at finding his infidelity she ran out into the trail of a dashing automobile and was once killed.
Have Corrie now made up our minds to rewrite historical past with an additional twist on Carla’s paternity to shake issues up? By all accounts, Sharon led moderately a vibrant existence so possibly there was once a ‘who’s the father’ state of affairs, with each Scott and Johnny within the body to be the daddy if she was once concerned with the pair of them on the similar time.
It would give an explanation for Scott’s bizarre protecting streak over the previous manufacturing facility boss, however we admit it’s a protracted shot – despite the fact that it doesn’t adjust the reality he’s getting worryingly preoccupied along with her welfare. So if we’re mistaken, what does attach him and Carla?
Now Peter’s suspicions were raised, without a doubt it’s just a subject of time sooner than he cracks the large thriller.
