Last week, Sam’s mother Natasha was shot by drug lord Harvey. Harvey had escaped prison seeking revenge on Sam’s stepmother, Leanne, who testified against him in court.
Harvey believed Natasha was Leanne as they were both wearing the same Halloween costume and shot her in Nick and Leanne’s flat.
Natasha was taken to hospital and given an operation, but doctors worried about her high blood pressure.
Natasha was taken for a second surgery and before she went in, she said an emotional goodbye to Sam.
As Nick and Sam waited, a doctor came out and told them the devastating news that they couldn’t stop the internal bleeding and Natasha had died.
Coronation Street: Jude Riordan deserves all the awards, say fans
In last night’s scenes (Wednesday, October 27) Nick needed to go back to the flat to get some stuff for him and Leanne.
However Sam followed them up and saw the floor was a different colour where the forensics team had cleaned up Natasha’s blood. He told his dad that he didn’t want to live there if the floor was like that.
Later Sam asked Nick if he could see Natasha in the funeral directors. Although Nick at first didn’t want him see Natasha’s body, Sam said he needed to, to remind himself she was gone.
Nick took Sam to the funeral director and the young boy read a poem he wrote for his mother, telling her how much he loved her.
Fans were heartbroken for Sam, but they praised Jude’s performance saying he deserves all the awards.
