As we reported last week, murderer Will Savage is about to make a dramatic exit from Hollyoaks in an upcoming storyline, and now we have more details, and pictures to show you!
Fans of the award-winning Channel 4 soap will know how Will (James Atherton) is responsible for the deaths of his wife Texas (Bianca Hendrickse-Spendlove) having killed her after discovering she was about to leave him on their wedding day and his mother, Anna (Saskia Wickham), who he drowned after she threatened to tell his next girlfriend Ash (Holly Weston) that he was a killer.
Ash herself faced the end of her life at the hands of the brut after figuring it all out anyway, but an exploding bomb in the flat below them finished the job off for him instead.
However, his web of lies is about to unravel as his friends and family start to piece together the evidence and work out the truth too!
The situation arises when little Leah Hay (anyone notice how pretty much every disaster is sparked by this child?) tells Ash’s mum Martha (Carli Norris) that she saw Will walking and hiding his mother’s locket in the air vent, making her start to think he was responsible for the murders again.
Martha informs Will’s brother Dodger (Danny Mac), who had found out the truth about Will before the explosion but whose memory was wiped of the incident in the blast, who suggests they go to the police. Unfortunately for them the whole conversation is overheard by Will who comes up with a plan to keep them all silent.
Using the eight bedroom mansion that his mother left to him in his will, the murderer lures his father Dirk (David Kennedy), Patrick Blake (Jeremy Sheffield), his girlfriend Maxine Minniver (Nicki Sanderson) and Martha to the property next week, where he proceeds to hold them all hostage.
Getting wind of events, Dodger’s sister Sienna (Anna Passey) storms the building armed with a shot gun but is soon overpowered by Will as she starts to try and free the hostages, making the situation much more frightening as now he has the gun!
Dodger is next to arrive and soon it becomes clear that his misery is the final prize for twisted Will as he demands which of his father’s, Dirk or Patrick, he should kill first, as he details how his MO is to kill everyone that Dodger holds dear and leave him with nothing left to live for.
Not standing for the manipulation Dodger makes a stand against the brother and, after managing to get the gun away, chases the once-wheelchair bound villain to the rooftop where a Savage fight erupts, causing both of them to fall to the ground below!
But who will survive? All we know is that James Atherton who plays Will is leaving the show, but whether his character is carried out in a body bag, or handcuffs remains to be seen!
Watch all the drama unfold in Hollyoaks on Wednesday, November 6 and Thursday, November 7 at 6.30pm on Channel 4 / Channel 4 HD.
