So, Hollyoaks fans should know by now that evil serial killer, Silas Blissett (Jeff Rawle), is set to return to the village, and with the shocking discovery of Lynsey Nolan’s(Karen Hassan) dead body on Friday’s episode of the hit teen drama, it was far too easy to draw a line connecting the two events.
However, reports in todays Daily Star newspaper have revealed that his return is actually set to be behind the bars of his padded cell after Texas Longford (Bianca Hendrickse-Spendlove) pays him a visit.
Fans of the show will know how it was the murder of Texas‘ sister, India, that started Blissett’s killing spree, and when, in the next few weeks Texas starts experiencing nightmares, we are assuming linked to Lynsey’s murder, she decides the only way to get any peace is to confront her sisters killer.
The first scenes of the notorious criminal will show him in his mental hospital, ruling him out as a suspect in Lynsey’s murder enquiry.
Lynsey (Karen Hassan) was found dead by Brendan Brady (Emmet J Scanalan) at the end of Friday’s episode in one of the best soap secrets ever kept, shocking an entire nation who did not even know that Hassan was leaving!
Lynsey was an intended victim of Silas after she worked out that he was the murderer, but in a twist of fate he ended up killing the wrong person instead of her, and that person was his own daughter, so there is no love lost between the two characters.
It was revealed last month in the soap that Silas would not be facing trial for his crimes due to being certified insane, and shortly after that Jeff Rawle who plays the psychopath killer was spotted on the Liverpool set of the soap, with a script in hand.
Texas will go and visit Silas to try and gain some closure from her sister’s death, but fans of the show will be shocked by what he tells her, and far from getting the peace of mind she longs for, instead she is subjected to a tyrant of terror from the twisted villain, from the confinement of his hospital cell.
An insider told the paper: “Silas is one of the soap world’s most twisted characters and everyone thought they had seen the last of him.
“Texas has been having nightmares and decides to pay him a visit in order to finally put everything behind her. But all it does is open a whole new chapter with him.
“He really gets to her and she isn’t at all prepared for what he tells her. It’s all going to get pretty nasty for her over the next few weeks and Silas will be very much back in her nightmares.”
See the drama unfold a week on Tuesday on the hit Channel 4 show.
