For weeks Nick has been lying in a coma following the horrific crash which his brother David Platt caused in revenge for Nick sleeping with his wife Kylie.
But now he is awake, and David's worst fears are realised as not only does he remember everything about the crash, but he also wants to find out Lily's paternity once and for all.
"It's a new emergence for when Nick wakes up, what is he going to remember, what is his relationship going to be like with David," said Corrie actor Ben Price in behind-the-scenes footage.
"I think it is exciting - Nick's memory hasn't been affected and I think that is very important for the audience to quickly understand that he remembers everything.
"He remembers what David did and he wants closure."
Unable to deal with the lies and secrets any longer, Nick summons his little brother to his bedside and presents him with an ultimatum.
I don't know who the dad is, if she has got big ears then she will be mine.

Ben explained: "Nick needs to know who the dad is. If it is his, then he needs to deal with that and if it is David's, then we move on.
"Nick knows that just asking David for a DNA test isn't going to work, because David pushes and pushed and he says no.
"In the end Nick says "right, you get it done, or I'll go to the police and say you tried to kill me, it's your choice"."
David relents to Nick's demand, but he also has to deal with Kylie's growing suspicions.
"(David) does go for the test and he obviously has been talking to Tina (McIntyre) all the way through this - he can never do anything on his own, he has always got to have a little girlfriend to hold his hand.
"With Tina being involved, then it would definitely raise Kylie's suspicions as to what is going on."
Coronation Street is on UTV on Monday and Wednesday from 7.30pm and Sunday from 7pm.
