On ‘Hollyoaks’: Silas has Mercedes hostage. He’s a pensioner - why doesn’t she just make him fall down so he can’t get up? Since when is the hospital shut? Lindsey has a baby girl. Myra is dreadful. Scott proposes to John-Paul. Kim tries to help Lindsey. Hypnotoad is useless. Joe is faux-nonchalant. Silas is mildly unsettling and brings up Mercedes son Bobby who is his great-grandson. John-Paul is still married to Ste. Lindsey blames her serial killing on the crap Hypnotoad pulled to steal her from Joe and she visibly anguished.
The sheer insanity of this whole plot boggles. Why is JJ still a baby? Shouldn’t he be bigger? Why do people have a culture of acquiescence to the serial killers? How can Lindsey get away? She just gave birth! Silas outsmarts Mercedes. Kim tries to talk sense into Lindsey. The previous Lyndsey is brought up. Why is Kim so intensely loyal to Lindsey? Scott is like a bad ‘Carry On’ character. Mercedes emotionally injures Silas.
Lindsey constructs a specific sort of personal narrative about her life and tells Silas to kill her friend Mercedes. A social reckoning looms. Mala Fides! Lindsey names her newborn daughter Kimberley. Negative force Lindsey heads for her total psychological and emotional destruction. Mercedes and Silas make a deal. Lindsey and her insincerity says goodbye to Kimberley. Silas makes a damning argument against Lindsey and kills her. Silas gets away again and there is much mirroring of original Lyndsey’s death.
Cleo has a shameful attitude and no moral responsibility. TPTB mechanically rejig plots. Cleo is evil and conniving. Joe yells. Kim is hated on. This is an inevitably grim and unflattering account of Chester folk. Cleo tries to run off with Pete who attacks John-Paul. Everyone is aggrieved and dissatisfied. Loudly berating Hypnotoad is foul. Who’ll bury Lindsey? Who’ll raise Kimberly? Esther and Kim chat. People are confrontational. Myra is awful. John-Paul’s parentage comes out.
