Recently Shona, who suffered a brain injury resulting in memory loss earlier this year, has moved in with Roy and Nina.
In next week’s preview pictures, her care worker explains to Roy and Nina that Shona needs a routine in order to recover.
Later, David is thrilled when Shona invites him over to the flat. But when she leans in for a kiss he is taken by surprise. Is she starting to remember her husband?
What happens in this week’s Coronation Street?
In this week’s episodes, Roy reveals that Shona has been assigned a support worker and should be discharged from the rehab centre soon. Hearing this, David is filledwith optimism.
Roy returns from a meeting with Shona’s key worker and confirms she will be moving in the next day. David is thrilled but Roy’s concerned he’s getting his hopes up.
The next day David comes to the cafe flat and drops off some of Shona’s things in preparation for her arrival.
A happy ending for David and Shona
Speaking back in May at a virtual press event, Corrie boss Iain MacLeod said: “They work best as sparky and funny so there will be comedy but her feelings are absent and there’s no emotional attachment – it will be a bumpy road.
“It’s not love at first sight when she sees him – for his part, David’s challenge is to make her fall back in love with him.
“But she’s also a different proposition too so he also has to fall back in love with her. Nobody has a long-term desire to split them up so they will have a happy ending.
“They’re like cheese and crackers – none are good without the other. But it’s a very unique and emotionally complicated story.”
Coronation Street airs Monday, Wednesday and Friday at 7.30pm on ITV.
