Jeff Rawle, who has of course reprised the role of Hollyoaks serial killer Silas Blissett, has revealed to Soaplife that even from the confines of his cell in a secure prison unit, the evil killer may once again bring a reign of terror to the village via a protégé who Silas claims is going to carry out murders for him!
And disturbingly, Silas wants Texas Longford (Bianca Hendrickse-Spendlove) dead because – though he of course murdered her sister India – it’s preying on his twisted mind that Texas was his original intended target.
First, Soaplife asked, “How is Silas finding life behind bars?” to which Jeff replied, “I think he’s accepted that he’s going to be in the secure psychiatric unit for the rest of his life…
“But he’s begun to think that maybe he can manipulate the outside world from the inside and still live out his murderous fantasies…
“I can’t give too much away, but Silas seems to know a lot more about what’s going on out there than he should.”
Jeff was then asked who Silas would murder if he could, to which he replied, “Texas. She is the one that got away. He meant to murder her, but killed India.
“He has this nagging feeling that he made a mistake and wishes he could put it right.”
Jeff then went on to reveal Silas’s latest chilling plan…
He said, “Silas has told the police that another murder is going to be committed.
“He says he’s got someone out there doing his dirty work and he gives a specific time.
“The police are then after information which delights Silas as it’s an opportunity to play games.
“The police send Texas in because they think he might talk to her. It’s hard for her as she has the awfulness of knowing that Silas killed her sister, yet she thinks that she can save a life.
“Silas is delighted to have an audience and makes lots of threats, leaving her to work out which ones to take seriously.”
However, the tables turn on Silas somewhat when Texas produces India’s ring, which the killer kept as a trophy after he murdered her, but subsequently lost.
Of that, Jeff said, “It was Silas’s trophy from India’s killing. He lost it when he had a meltdown over killing his daughter Heidi.
“It is very symbolic for Silas and Texas uses it to taunt him. She thinks there might be a trade off: some information for the ring.”
And finally, Jeff revealed that Texas could be in terrible danger.
He said, “Texas is the one he wants.”
Oo creepy much?!
