One issue in particular has been raised by several viewers of Coronation Street as Stephen Reid’s (Todd Boyce) terror reign continues.

When will it be over?

Stephen was first introduced as Audrey’s (Sue Nicholls) businessman son who was visiting Weatherfield to spend time with his family in England. However, after murdering Leo Thompkins (Joe Frost), who had discovered that Stephen was attempting to steal money from Audrey, Stephen was revealed to be the next bad guy on the cobbles.

After realising that Stephen knew more than he was letting on regarding Leo’s abduction, the character killed Teddy, Leo’s father.

The most recent victim was fellow businessman Rufus Donohue, who passed away after telling Stephen that he was fully aware of his involvement in drugging Carla (Alison King).

No one on the cobblestones is safe, which is a fascinating dark tale, but Stephen will inevitably depart the show once his secrets are discovered.

How will that be, though?

Todd Boyce has been thinking about this for a time, and he just shared a surprise theory as to why he believes Stephen would die in his last moments.

‘I share a dressing room with Dan Brocklebank [who plays Billy Mayhew] who is just so much fun and so wonderful’, he told Inside Soap.

He claims that every person who has sat on my chair has passed away! It’s kind of a haunted chair, then. Dan has been a part of the programme for ten years; that’s a little concerning!”

When Rufus’ widow Lou shows up and shares her feelings over her partner’s death, Stephen might be about to commit murder once again at another location.

A tie pin that was discovered next to Rufus’ corpse would soon find its way into Lou’s possession; she is unaware that it belonged to Stephen.

Todd said, “He’s really hating himself for wearing that pin.”

He is cursing at himself. Now when he can sense the walls closing in on him, he exclaims, “Oh, God, no!” He has managed to persuade himself that he would never have to commit murder once again, but he is still in denial.
