** In 2018 Eva Price becomes pregnant with Aidan Connor's baby but their engagement and trust between each other falls apart. When Eva finally gives birth to Susie she gives the baby to Toyah Battersby after her and Peter Barlow's surrogate had a miscarriage. After Aidan commits suicide the Connor family as well as Peter find out that Susie actually belonged to Aiden and Eva. In a fit of rage and grief the Connor family becomes determined to gain custody over Susie, under the belief that Eva and Toya pushed him to suicide by removing his parental custody or allowed Aidan to kill himself by not telling him about Susie. Eva neglects to tell them that she already told Aidan about the pregnancy but he didn't believe her and wanted nothing to do with Eva or the baby until a DNA test confirmed that the baby was his. By the time he figured out that he's Susie's father, he already made the decision to end his own life and the undiagnosed depression corrupted his sense of self worth. Not only that but Eva is clearly horrified and guilt ridden for Aidan's death and wants to make things right with the Connor family, there's an obvious opportunity for compromise since Peter clearly doesn't want to be with Toyah or the baby after the revelation. Another bit of idiocy comes from Toyah as Susie will have no resemblance to Peter and possibly the surrogate in the later years so pretending that Susie is theirs won't work because the genetics won't match.

* StrictlyFormula: The stories can become a bit repetitive but the only difference being that the problem is held by a different character but there is some noticeable repetitiveness such as the pub being set on fire whenever there is a new owner. A villain that isn't arrested for their crimes and sent to jail then they are killed off by either murder or by accident or by a fortunate chance of leaving the street and never intending to return. Even the famed tram crash for the 50th anniversary was a rehash of a freight train derailment in 1967 that killed Sonia Peters and a family who lived on Viaduct Street and trapped Ena Sharples.

A owner and someone always has an affair.

** In 2015 David Platt has the idea to plant incriminating evidence in Callum Logan's car however Andy Carver is caught by Callum and is taken away to be tortured for answers. David didn't call the police when he saw this. It would of been the perfect opportunity to catch him since the police would of caught him the middle of torturing Andy, and David could of just told them that he was trying to figure out what happened to Kylie and to protect Max from a known criminal. The worst that would happen is that David would be arrested for owning drugs and Andy would be severely injured but not dead. Instead David decides to save Andy himself without calling anyone beforehand. A noble gesture and all, but every tragedy that happens the Platt family originates from this. Jason Grimshaw being assaulted in an alleyway, Callum being murdered by Kylie which leads to Sarah's guilt induced mental breakdown. Because of Sarah's breakdown, Lauren gains more leverage for bullying Bethany which leads to Bethany's indoctrination into a hebephile ring. On a minor note, Kylie's murder was also caused by David's actions since they only planned to move away from Coronation Street because they wanted a fresh start after murdering Callum and after the trio (David, Kylie and Sarah) ended up on the police radar after the body was uncovered.

* TheyWastedAPerfectlyGoodPlot: One of the series' most iconic and well-loved characters, Deirdre Barlow, passed away in 2015. Her funeral, which should have been a beautiful send-off to a longtime and important character in universe, was instead somewhat downplayed in favor for [[UnintentionallyUnsympathetic Carla Connor's]] gratuitous gambling problem, to many fans' chagrin.

** PAT PHELAN. A man who, as of the start of 2018, [[spoiler: defrauded half the residents of the street, raped two women, killed four men, set his former rape victim Anna Windass up for attempted murder]], committed god only knows how many more petty evils against various other characters, and [[KarmaHoudini gotten away with it all]] whilst easily being one of the DUMBEST villains to ever disgrace the cobbles in 57 years. The worst part? The writers must know just how unbelievably bad a criminal Phelan is, because they had the temerity to make him [[spoiler: brag to Michael, a dying man, that “Napoleon would have loved me. He said he preferred his generals to be lucky than good.”]] There have been at least 5 times that Phelan has put himself in a situation where he can easily be arrested, killed or otherwise destroyed, and each time he’s gotten away with it! WordOfSaintPaul is he'll be getting his before too long, likely in 2018.
*** [[spoiler:He finally does come March 30th, 2018. Eileen lets him drop to his death after he slips and dangles onto a cliff.]] [[spoiler: Not that it matters, as the following episode revealed he was still alive, showing the character has a ridiculous amount of plot armour.]]

* IdiotPlot: Seriously, what did you think would happen if you dragged Pat Phelan back to Weatherfield and try to keep him captive, Gary? The entire debacle could have been avoided if Gary had called the police, especially since Phelan is currently ''wanted by the police for four murders.''
