Maybe the reason why Kirsty keeps her hair so long is because it hides the 666 that is indelibly inked on her scalp?
Next week, the Omen of Weatherfield has Fiz in her sights, but this being Corrie we’re not talking about anything as extravagant as decapitation by a plane of glass or a skewering with a javelin. No, for Kirsty, a faulty sewing-machine needle proves to be the perfect weapon.
Events are set in motion when Kirsty discovers that Tyrone has disobeyed her orders by talking to Fiz. Later, she spies that Fiz is having problems at Underworld with material jamming in her machine. As Fiz tries to fix it, she asks Julie to switch it off at the mains so she can untangle the cotton.
While nobody is looking, Kirsty switches it back on causing the faulty machine to spark back into life and for Fiz’s hand to go under the needle.
Kirsty takes control and points out that Julie must have mistakenly switched off the wrong machine. She then takes Fiz to hospital but, once at A&E, the caring façade drops and Kirsty makes it clear that she’s responsible for her injuries and if Fiz doesn’t keep clear of Tyrone, then the situation will only worsen.
