Coronation Street's Carla Barlow makes a huge decision over Underworld

Coronation Street spoilers follow.

Carla Barlow will make a huge decision about the Underworld factory in Coronation Street.

The majority owner of the factory has been the unknowing victim of serial killer Stephen Reid's plot to take control of the local business empire.

Stephen had previously drugged Carla, before convincing her to take time away from work by making her question her mental health.

In upcoming scenes, Carla continues staying away from the factory following her recent outburst, as she's still unaware that she'd had her drink spiked with LSD by Stephen.

Stephen is horrified when Carla suddenly returns to announce that she's selling her shares of the factory — and has already lined up a potential buyer.

The killer springs into action when he receives the first of on-going life insurance payments that he's taken out on his future wife Elaine Jones.

Earlier this year, Stephen secretly took out the life insurance policy on Elaine after hearing that she had a family history of heart problems that killed her mother at a young age.

Stephen continues trying to scheme when he suggests to Elaine that they should remortgage Redbank in order to have the cash needed to directly buy out Carla.

Will Elaine go along with Stephen's plot?

Carla has kept the factory running throughout some very challenging times in the past. She returned to her duties a few years ago after a mental health relapse.

She also stewarded Underworld through a crisis when a factory collapse caused the death of beloved character Rana Habeeb on what should have been her wedding day.

Coronation Street airs on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays at 8pm on ITV1 and streams on ITVX.
