Coronation Street viewers have probably learned what Simon Barlow is hiding in a recent episode.
The character was named by fans as the man they believed was Adam Barrow’s attacker.
He was hit on the head and left for dead, and he remained in the hospital in a coma fighting for his life.
Simon has been acting profoundly ever since, it is clear that he is angry at his cousin Karela Connor – his stepmother and his father Peter Barlow’s partner for breaking up.
Peter has blamed himself, and he informed his son on Wednesday that he was not the attacker – but he believes Adam’s wife Sarah could be to blame.
At the time when Peter was also accused of writing graffiti on the door of his workplace, the truth became clear.
Simon was very awkward and almost guilty, with Peter telling him he wasn’t so sure he was Sarah.
Peter was adamant, but fans saw how upset Simon was acting.
Later in the double episode, Simon saw evidence archiving which showed what it was like on the night of the attack.
He took a tin of red paint from his bag before hiding it in the box, thinking no one was watching.
Shona caught him though – when he promised to keep her a secret.
Of course this cannot deny him as an attacker, but now he is less likely to be a criminal.
Viewers predicted he was a mystery graffiti artist, via a tweet: “Simon Barlow thinks he’s another graffiti artist.”
Another said: “OMG Graffiti was Simon but what of the real attack?”
The third added: “Oh. Simon did the graffiti.”
The coronation airs on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays at 7.30pm and on ITV at 8.30pm.
