He made a dramatic return to the street last week, under the guise that he had discovered his long-lost daughter Katie.
But the fans of Coronation Street were disgusted by Jim McDonald on Wednesday night when he kissed the woman who was supposed to be his unexpected offspring.
Quickly watching social media, viewers were furious to hear that Katie was in fact an impostor and Jim's beloved, and the couple worked together to convince his ex-wife Liz of her savings as revenge for letting them rot the prison.
Outraged: Coronation Street fans struck a & # 39; ill & # 39; Jim McDonald close when he seemed to kiss his long-lost daughter, who was actually an impostor in his revenge plot
The episode began to follow Jim's (Charlie Lawson) bomb to Liz (Beverley Callard) that their daughter was actually alive, more than 30 years after she was led to believe that her baby died minutes after birth.
Liz was left with the difficult decision to reunite and reconnect with her daughter, as Jim admitted he had found her.
In touching scenes, Katie (Hannah Ellis Ryan) shared an emotional reunion with Liz, after struggling to control their emotions, with Jim explaining that she had been renamed Hannah & # 39; by their adoptive parents.
Shockingly: Jim had returned to the streets to tell Liz that their long-lost daughter was indeed alive and adopted and was living in Australia.
Surprisingly: during an emotional reunion Liz was able to embrace her daughter Katie, whom she thought she had died almost three decades earlier.
But despite the fact that it would appear that the family would be able to rebuild their special bond, the true nature of Katie & # 39; minutes later revealed.
In a private car with Jim he joked that she & # 39; a good daughter & # 39; was, to which she replied: "Do not call me that, you know that I am not."
The couple then continued to share a steaming kiss, making viewers angry about this surprisingly incestuous relationship.
But later the real identity of & # 39; Katie & # 39; unveiled, with the brunette posing as Liz's daughter as part of Jim's plan to get her out of her savings, to take revenge on her and the Steve's son because he put him in the prison rot.
Unbelievable: later scenes revealed that Jim actually had a relationship with & # 39; Katie & # 39; who was a deceiver as part of a plot to seduce her out of savings as revenge for leaving him in prison
Naughty! Fans struck producers for the story that flew in the face of Liz's tragic loss decades ago, which was highly praised at the time
Fans were left sick by the plot, because it was not only in an uncomfortable way that Jim had a relationship with his daughter, but they also closed producers for the story that Liz & # 39; s tragic loss happened decades before.
Actress Beverley was praised for her performance in the 1992 scenes when her daughter was born prematurely and died hours later, especially as such a plot had never been covered in soap before.
A tweeted: & # 39; The storyline of MacDonald is #sick !!! How could Jim do something so horrible to Liz? & # 39;
Another added: & # 39; Does not have this whole story line jim / katie … he has never been smart enough to make this up and Liz has always been important to him! & # 39;
Unreal: Twitter was followed in large numbers, many were stunned when they saw Jim and Katie share a kiss, even after the true nature of their relationship was revealed
It remains to be seen, of course, whether the plan of Jim and Katie will be revealed by Liz or one of her loved ones, especially since Steve will demand a DNA test next week.
Other fans have already claimed that Jim's plan implodes because he can not hide his long-standing love for Liz, especially because he still keeps her Elizabeth & # 39; my Elizabeth & # 39; called.
Adding fuel to the fire, actor Charlie Lawson recently told Digital Spy: "Jim just wants Liz back, but by that time he is too deep.
& # 39; It gives the character a kind of redemption, which is important. Jim has never been a bad man, he just makes mistakes like every man. & # 39;
Coronation Street continues on Friday 14 September at 7:30 PM and 8:30 PM on ITV.
What's next? Fans will have to wait and see if the plan works out, because fans have hinted that Jim may not be able to hide his long-term love for Liz
