Bethany (played by Lucy Fallon) has already been through a terrible ordeal throughout the course of her relationship with paedophile Nathan (Chris Harper).
The schoolgirl has endured being groomed by the sinister character and raped by his friend Neil Clifton (Ben Cartwright) as Nathan failed to come to her aid when she pleaded for him to put a stop to it.
After last night's instalment of the ITV soap, fans saw a brief teaser trailer for next week's dark episodes, which are set to air after the 9pm watershed each day.
The clip showed Nathan watching on as Bethany does her make-up in the mirror.

"Not a great message to send out that you're not safe reporting to police," one viewer tweeted, while another said: "Dunno how great a message it sends insinuating that if people ask for help re grooming the police are gonna be corrupt."
A spokesperson consequently spoke out regarding fans' concerns, explaining that the writers had worked closely with both the police and abuse advocates on the storyline.
"Every aspect of this storyline has been fully researched with child protection charities and Greater Manchester Police," they told the Manchester Evening News.
"Unfortunately there are corrupt and evil people in all walks of life and in the coming months we will see developments in the storyline which will see Nathan and his gang exposed and forced to face the full consequences of their actions."
Coronation Street continues Monday at 9pm on ITV.
