Coronation Street’s Peter Barlow (Chris Gascoyne) has been aware for a while that drinking alcohol is having a damaging affect on his body, and after ending up in hospital in Monday’s episode, tonight it seemed as though he had accepted the fact that his liver is failing, and there was nothing else that could be done.
Peter’s health has been deteriorating rapidly over the last few weeks, and he wanted to leave Weatherfield while the investigation into Adam’s (Sam Robertson) attack continued.
But things drastically changed when Daniel (Rob Mallard) saw him coughing up blood in Victoria Gardens.
With Adam out of hospital, he visited Ken (William Roache) and, ignoring Daniel’s advice, he broke the news that Peter hadn’t run away but was in hospital.
Ken arrived to Peter’s bedside and was shocked to see the extent of his condition.
Exhausted and depressed, Peter told Ken that after years of self-abuse it’s time to accept that his liver is failing, and he’s dying, leaving Ken devastated.
Ken pleaded with Peter, telling him it’s not time to give up, but it appeared Peter had already accepted his situation – recognising he’s spent years damaging his body and it was now time to face the consequences.
As Peter’s struggle continues, it’s more important than ever for the Barlows to work together and help him.
Is there anything or anyone that can change Peter’s mind, and remind him giving up isn’t the only option?
