Ever since Shona Platt (Julia Goulding) was shot - and literally lost her memory - by one of Gary Windass' (Mikey North) disgruntled 'customers', David Platt (Jack P. Shepherd) has been on another one of his downward spirals.
When David hits self-destruct, viewers will be aware he self-destructs hard.
Over the past number of weeks, fans of the Weatherfield Serial Drama have seen David get himself into some serious pickles which started with him antagonise a vicious mugger who eventually held him at knifepoint for his phone and wallet.
After that David tried to provoke another gang in a dangerous part of Manchester by jumping onto the bonnet of their vehicle.
It wasn't until this week in Coronation Street - after PC Craig Tinker (Colson Smith) gave him a well-needed peptalk - that David decided to settle down as this time he could have got himself killed and he has two children to be there for.
In tonight's (Wednesday 27 May 2020/Episode 10067) visit to the cobbles, Shona was seen visiting her criminal son, Clayton Hibbs (Callum Harrison), in prison who has been filling her delicate mind with poison about David.
For a recap, Shona is currently residing in a medical facility convalescing with her memory loss after being shot.
In the closing moments of this evening's episode, Sarah Barlow (Tina O'Brien) - who is David's sister/Shona's sister-in-law - visited Shona in her ward and have a heart-to-heart with the troubled woman.
Sarah very carefully explained to Shona everything that went on between her and David. About David's rape and how she saved him. Desperate to assist her brother from being harmed, Sarah pleaded with Shona to come home and save David one more time.
Shona was reluctant because at the end of the day she still has no idea who David is - the evil thoughts planted by Clayton hasn't helped either - and has concerns that she may not be happy with him ever again.
In next week's Coronation Street, Shona will return home and be comforted by Roy Cropper (David Neilson), who she doesn't recognise but will she manage to remember who David is and the family who love her?
Coronation Street continues on ITV/STV.
