Coronation Street killer Corey Brent (Maximum Evans) was arrested on Thursday night, and this time he really could be sent down.
The character returned to the street and started harassing grieving Nina Lucas (Mollie Gallagher) after she accidentally bumped into him earlier in the episode while drowning her sorrows.
He had been at a meeting at a hotel with local famed footballer Tommy Orpington and his agent, when Nina spotted him and told the two older men about Corey's killer foot skills.
She grabbed his footballing award and ended up taking it back to the street with her, as Abi Franklin (Sally Carman) found her and brought her home.
But in the cafe, Nina was confronted by a menacing Corey, who wanted revenge after she seemed to ruin his chances of a glowing sporting career.
"You can take your piercings out and your makeup, but you're still a freak," he spat. "A sl*tty little gothic freak."
Nina threw his award into the road, smashing it into many little pieces, as Corey warned her that she shouldn't have done that.

But as he approached, no doubt to hurt her, Roy Cropper (David Nielsen) emerged from the cafe like a knight in shining armour.
He warned Corey to step away, and reminded him that he was breaking his bail conditions, and that the police surely wouldn't take too kindly to that.
The cocky lad laughed off Roy's apparent empty threat – until Craig Tinker (Colson Smith) came round the corner in his police car with the blue lights flashing.
He arrested him on suspicion of breaching his bail conditions – but will he be sent down?
Viewers celebrated the small victory, taking to Twitter to slam smirking Corey.
"What the f*** was Corey smirking at seriously?" one asked, adding the hashtag "Justice for Seb".
Another said: "Take that Corey!"
A third wrote: "I fathom to understand how anyone can feel as entitled as Corey in Corrie and how it's possible to spew out so much hate to fellow human beings? Such a despicable person."
Someone else said: "Karma's coming for you Corey lad."
And a fifth added: "Corey and his ugly mug not smiling now are you."
