As we reported yesterday, the village of Hollyoaks is about to be rocked when an explosion, the shows biggest stunt in history, rips through it, and now it has been revealed that it comes at a rather inconvenient time for one resident in particular.
Sinead O’Connor (Stephanie Davis) thinks that she has got one up on former pimp, Trevor Royle (Greg Wood) when she steals what she believes is a bag full of cash, and takes it with her to Ste (Keiron Richardson) and Doug’s (PJ Brennan) house party.
However, when she opens it later it turns out that what was actually in the bag was a homemade bomb, which explodes threatening the lives of several main characters.
But one of the main characters finds their life in danger way before the blast, as serial killer Will Savage (James Atherton) attempts to make current girlfriend, Ash Kane (Holly Weston) his next victim.
The situation arises when Ste’s daughter, Leah, tells Ash that she saw Will hiding his late mothers locket in an air vent, and that he can walk, alarming Ash so much that she starts to recap over Will’s recent behaviour – and it isn’t long before she comes to the shocking conclusion that he is behind the recent killing spree.
Will, never one to miss a trick, soon cottons on to the fact that he has been rumbled and refuses to leave when Ash tells him to get away from her, and soon a life threatening showdown between them erupts.
However, with Ash overpowered beneath him on the floor with his hands round her throat, Will is horrified to see his brother Dodger (Danny Mac) walk in and witness the whole thing.
But he needn’t worry too much as, right at that moment, the bag containing the homemade bomb explodes next door, leaving several main characters, including Dodger and Ash, fighting for their lives – but will the truth survive the blast?
