Spoilers: Geoff destroyed as Alya finds Elaine in Corrie?
Geoff Metcalfe (Ian Bartholomew) haas evaded justice in Coronation Street thus far, but Alya Nazir (Sair Khan) is determined to expose him for the liar and bully that he is.
Alya vowed to destroy Geoff in order to free gran Yasmeen (Shelley King), who’s in prison as a result of his abuse.
The key to destroying him was no doubt Elaine Jones (Paula Wilcox), who viewers will know is Geoff’s first wife, and Tim’s (Joe Duttine) biological mum.
Geoff had informed everyone that Elaine was dead, but her presence on the cobbles has proven otherwise.
The abuser was horrified to learn that Elaine was back on the scene, as he knows that her testimony in court would no doubt aid in putting him behind bars, given the hell he’s put her through over the years.
Therefore, he got rid of her — but the way in which he did so remains a mystery.
Yes, Elaine has vanished from the face of the earth, and the police don’t seem to be taking her disappearance all that seriously, meaning that Geoff has the upper hand.
What’s more, in spite of Tim now knowing that Geoff is an abuser, there’s nothing he can do to help get Yasmeen out of prison, as Alya revealed that — because Sally (Sally Dynevor) obtained the footage of Geoff abusing Yasmeen illegally — it’s likely inadmissible in court.
As a result, Elaine is their only hope of getting justice for Yasmeen.
Alya still has hope of locating her, as — in Friday’s hour-long episode (September 11) — she revealed her intention to have Imran Habeeb (Charlie de Melo) call Elaine as a witness during Yasmeen’s trial.
If he did so, and Elaine failed to turn up, then the police would be obligated to take her disappearance more seriously.
As a result, her plan could prove instrumental in exposing Geoff, and taking him down once and for all.
The question is: will it work?
Coronation Street continues Wednesday September 16 at 7:30pm & 8:30pm on ITV.
