5 Coronation Street spoilers next week
1. Struggling Peter intervenes as bully Mason wields a knife
While Peter continues to spiral ahead of his exit, the teen bullying saga reaches dangerous new heights. Sean Tully (Antony Cotton) quizzes son Dylan Wilson (Liam McCheyne) over his missing trainers, vowing to call the school for answers. As Dylan leaves, Liam Connor (Charlie Wrenshall) waves to him.
Dylan gives Liam the cold shoulder, and Liam's stepdad Gary Windass (Mikey North) clocks the animosity. At school, Dylan warns bully Mason (Luca Toolan) that Sean intends to report his missing trainers, so Mason and Conch tell Mrs Crawshaw that Liam stole Dylan's trainers.
When Mrs Crawshaw opens Liam's locker, he realises he's been stitched up. Liam shows Dylan the nasty messages he got from Mason, and Dylan tells him to block the number. At school, Mason gets in Liam's face and warns him that if he rats on him again to Gary, his mum Maria (Samia Longchambon) will suffer!

Liam is soon cornered by Mason, Dylan and the rest of Mason's cronies, who throw rubbish at him and call him a rat. Mason starts taking pictures, and Liam knocks his phone out of his hand. Mason then pulls out a knife and threatens Liam!
Meanwhile, Peter hears from Sean that his wife Carla (Alison King) had to bung him and Beth Sutherland (Lisa George) extra cash to entice them back to work. Peter has a go at Carla for failing to share the factory woes with him and not caring what he thinks, and Carla is shocked at his outburst.
Mason insists Dylan bunk off with him, and orders him to steal a box of vape pens from Peter's car. Peter is furious to realise they've been nicked, and he finds out the thief is a mate of Dylan's and thunders on the door of the house. Mason goads Peter and suggests he might run them over in his car. Peter loses control, breaking down the door and making a grab for Dylan. What will Peter do next?
2. Amy panics amid kiss with Aadi and prison warning
Amy and Aadi mull over the events of the night, hoping that when Dan wakes up, he can't remember what happened to him. DS Swain (Vicky Myers) calls and orders them to accompany her to the police station. Swain questions Amy, who says she wants a solicitor.
With Dee-Dee Bailey (Channique Sterling-Brown) present, Swain resumes the interview, and warns Amy she could get five years in prison! Later, Amy thanks Aadi for standing by her, and he leans in for a kiss.
Amy reciprocates, but is suddenly overcome by a wave of panic. With Amy still recovering from the trauma of her rape ordeal, will she be able to let Aadi into her life? Aadi feels awkward around Amy as the week continues, but can they get back on track? And is Amy heading to prison?

Meanwhile, Ed masks his panic and assures Paul there's no rush when Paul thanks him for his work on the flat and promises to pay him as soon as his disability grant comes in.
Glenda Shuttleworth (Jodie Prenger) leads a 'Save the Rovers' Campaign and rallies the troops as they see Luke, Ed and Ronnie file out of the pub. Believing the pub to have been sold, Jenny Connor (Sally Ann Matthews) is heartbroken to think Ronnie has betrayed her!
