In this life, one thing counts, in the bank, large amounts - where Phelan's concerned at least. No stranger to a scam, and a relentless opportunist, has one of the greatest villains ever to con the cobbles set his sights on an apprentice?
Another man may have agreed with Eileen, and called the police after catching Seb in the act of stealing his drill, but not Phelan who would appear to have other plans.
Seb arrived on the street as boyfriend to Faye Windass, and he isn't exactly a nice individual from what we've seen so far. This hasn't gone unnoticed by the ever astute Phelan, who even remarked that a lad like him could go either way depending on the company he keeps.
A man's got a heart, hasn't he? Joking apart, hasn't he? Who knows! But I feel Seb may get used to considering himself a friend - as long as Pat needs him, that is.
