In the upcoming weeks, Roy Cropper, a stalwart of Coronation Street, may end up putting himself in danger as he spars with protester Griff.
Roy Cropper, a character on Coronation Street played by David Neilson, rarely gets involved in the drama in Weatherfield and is frequently one of the people sought out for advice. However, as Roy confronts Griff (the actor’s name) in upcoming scenes, the steadfast might find himself in some trouble. In the past few weeks, Griff’s true motivations for his mission have grown more apparent, and he secretly decided to seek out Max Turner (Paddy Bever). Will Roy reveal Griff’s true identity?
Alya Nazir (Sair Khan) informs Yasmeen Metcalfe of her misgivings about Griff in ITV’s official spoilers (Shelley King).
Their mistrust of him increases when Toyah Battersby (Georgia Taylor) tells them about the racist gig.
In an open conversation with Spider, Toyah expresses her conviction that Griff is a racist and her concern for the effect he will have on Weatherfield.
Roy is left wondering what their goal is after Max leaves him with some of the flyers he made off with.
Spider praises Max’s flying skills and advises him not to waste them on people like Griff since he is aware of Toyah’s opinions of him.
By interfering and removing Max from Griff, is Spider putting himself in danger?
Brian Packham (Peter Gunn), Roy, Gary Windass (Mickey North), and Maria Connor (Samia Longchambon) join the audience in the community center anticipating a meeting about the environment.
However, as Griff begins to speak, his true motivations and character are revealed, confirming Toyah, Alya, and Yasmeen’s suspicions about him.
Roy dissects Griff’s argument by pointing out numerous factual errors in his speech, which leaves Griff speechless.
Griff realizes he’s lost the crowd’s support as they start to applaud Roy and fumbles to regain his words.
Maria, Gary, Roy, Toyah, and Brian decide in the cafe that the community center would be the ideal location to provide assistance and guidance to refugees.
Later, when David overhears Max berating his son for skipping school to hang out with Griff, Max snaps, “I have my own life,” and storms out of the house.
Back at Griff’s flat, Max shows his film of the meeting leaving Griff impressed with the hard work that he has done.
Toyah suggests to Spider that they start saving for a flat together but questions him about his friendship and work with Griff.
Roy and Brian watch Max’s film online and are outraged before they head over to David to warn him about Griff’s impact on Max.
David insists on meeting Max’s new mates and Max and Lauren arrive at Griff’s flat with David in tow, how will David react to Griff?
Will David drop Roy in it with Griff after the warning he was given?
Griff has already decided that Max is an easy target after he was getting bullied by some people from his school.
Now that he knows people are onto him about the way he has been treating Max, he could push further and make more damage than he already has done.
Roy could be in serious trouble if Griff takes his comments to heart, especially knowing how to get his own way.
