The former Rovers landlady was being threatened by the criminal who was desperately trying to get out of Weatherfield in a last-ditch attempt to escape justice.
Accused of murder, Peter was facing a devastating comeuppance until the authorities decided to drop the charges in an unexpected development
But despite it all, Peter's struggle continues next week as his wife Carla (played by Alison King) returns home from fruitless business trip to Spain.
