Thanks for sharing. Do you have the clip when Claire finds out that it was Justin who pushed her down the steps? Also did you get my last pm with the second part of Guy Burent BSV?

Here it is, this was one of the best episodes EVER. Justin tells her towards the end of the clip, btw.

Also did you get my last pm with the second part of Guy Burent BSV?

Yes, thank you! :)

BTW, here is Gemma Bissix's exit interview for EastEnders, she said she'd return to Hollyoaks if asked because she'd like to finish up the stuff with Warren, even if Max is dead, but she'd like to try a variety of things outside of soaps first.

Gemma Bissix (Clare Bates, 'EastEnders')

Tuesday, July 29 2008, 10:29 BST

By Kris Green, Soaps Editor

EastEnders actress Gemma Bissix bows out of the Walford--based soap in a couple of weeks' time when her character Clare Bates is left feeling isolated and unwanted by her closest friends and family. The former Hollyoaks actress finished filming at Elstree Studios last month, and last week we caught up with her to chat about her - albeit brief - return to her roots, Paul Bradley and what's in the pipeline for her in the coming months.

Do you think Clare really liked Bradley? Or was he just part of her big game?

"It was all part of a big game - to start with, at least. Clare's actually got a bit of a softer side to her and she does genuinely care for him."

Clare begins to doubt who she is doesn't she? We begin to see a glimmer of something nice in her…

"Dot's away the week prior to Clare's final week on the Square and Bradley finds Clare's little black book. When he turns against her, it turns into a bit of a drunken mission for her and she wrecks Dot's house. When Dot comes back, she finds her in a bit of a state and hands her a Christianity leaflet. She actually sits and tries to pray."

We only really ever scratched the surface with her, don't you think? There's still a lot we don't know about Clare.

"Oh, definitely. This isn't a closed chapter. At the end of the day, she's been outed off the Square and with the character she is, she doesn't even know what's going on in her own head. Someone like Clare doesn't stick around Walford unless there's a reason. I like to believe in what I do and believe in my characters. I'm not going to stay in a job for no reason. Clare would definitely leave in this situation."

Did you ever bump into Paul Bradley at Elstree?

"Yeah! On my first day. I took my mum with me, funnily enough. She used to chaperone me for the six years that I was with EastEnders before and we all sat in the canteen and had lunch like it was old times."

Do you think you ever left behind Hollyoaks character Clare Devine?

"A lot of people ask me this. Clare Bates is a minx and dresses to impress, using her sexuality to get where she wanted. You'll see in the next few weeks of episodes, though, that Clare Devine doesn't have the emotion Clare Bates does. Clare Devine kills people, she tells little children that they're the reason for their parents' death!"

Did you watch Max's death in Hollyoaks?

"Most definitely. It was very sad watching it. I went up to Liverpool earlier this month, funnily enough, and saw Matt [Littler]."

I read somewhere that you were planning on giving up acting in soaps now…

"Oh no, I didn't say that. If I've been quoted as saying that, I would have meant that I wasn't intending on appearing in another soap. There was talk of me going to The Bill but I wasn't planning on going down any more soap routes. I'm interested in doing one-off dramas."

So you wouldn't consider moving back up north to go back to Hollyoaks?

"I'd definitely go back to Hollyoaks if I were asked. I wouldn't rule it out. Even though Max (Matt Littler) has died, there's still the whole situation with Warren (Jamie Lomas) if and when him and Louise were to get married."

What have you been doing since you finished filming?

"I've got a couple of bits and pieces on the horizon. I've got an episode of Hotel Babylon coming up and I've got an episode of Britannia High, too - a musical drama series that Gary Barlow's written. They're not regular jobs, though, like EastEnders. I'm secure enough now, though, to take a few risks in what I do. I'd like to be able to try different avenues. As an actress, you live by your contract, so nothing's secure unless you have one."

Clare :wub: Please come back!!! :D I really want to see her storylines from 2006, 2007! I've only seen episodes here and there. :(

Last week was alright. Not too much happening except for Ste falling! When he fell, I thought he died.

This week is going to be good with Jack's "funeral" and the stuff with Newt!

Thanks for the heads up. :)

Shocking John Paul, Kieron, and Niall spoiler, thanks to Anita for PM-ing me this! I don't see how Niall is redeemable after this and all the other things he's pulled.

I wonder how Craig's return fits into all of this.

http://dailystar.co.uk/soaperstar/view/46262/Hollycroaks/

HERE’S the proof that evil Niall Rafferty does kill gay priest Kieron Hobbs and make it look like suicide.

The plotline had sparked a fans’ campaign to get the writers to change their mind.

But, as our pictures show, Kieron – seen being comforted by his fella John-Paul McQueen (James Sutton, 25) – is bumped off by Niall (Barry Sloane, 27) who drugs his drink.

It comes after Kieron (Jake Hendriks, 27) finds out Niall has been keeping secret the fact he is Myra McQueen’s long-lost son.

A mole said: “This has been building for months.”

Another favourite Clare scene of mine. After Clare had falsely reported Max to Social Services for abusing Tom, she goes to Tom and tells him that everyone who he's loved and that loves him dies because of him. So, when the Social Service Worker comes to investigate Tom and Max, Tom falsely tells the Social Worker that he doesn't want to live with Max anymore because Clare convinced him that Max would die because of him (though he doesn't say that directly), like Tom's other loved ones.

The sad thing is, Clare was right, everyone who loves Tom ends up dying. :lol:

Clare is insane, and it's kind of funny in a bad way the stuff she tells Tom.

Also in this clip, Clare had told Calvin that Louise aborted their child together, so that's why Calvin is so mad at her. This entire episode is posted, and this is just part two of three parts.

In case anyone's wondering, here is the beginning of Max and Steph. Max tells Steph about how he blames himself for Clare's wrong-doings and how he thinks he's turning into a monster.

Thanks for sharing the clip! I love Tom and Clare so anything with them is appreciated. :D

Clare: "Hello, Tom. Have you missed me? I'm sure you have. I know how much you hate it when everybody leaves you."

Tom: "Max is over there."

Clare: "I know blessin [???]. I just want to have a little chat about big brave Max."

Tom: "He's not scared of you."

Clare: "Why would he be? I only want the best for you boys. Now listen, you know grownups, they don't always tell the truth. Well, auntie Clare does. And auntie Clare's got a secret. Max isn't well, Tom. Cause you keep giving him your germs."

Tom: "He's fine."

Clare: "You're making him ill, so ill that he'll die."

Tom: "You're lying."

Clare: "How do you think baby Grace died? And your mommy and daddy?"

Tom: "It was an ancident."

Clare: "All your friends have mommies and daddies. Except you, Tom. That's why they died. Now listen if you love Max, really love Max, you need to keep away from him. You don't want anyone else to die, do you?"

Tom: "Nooo."

Clare: "Then you mustn't tell anyone, especially Max. He'll be so sad of you killed baby Grace and his daddy and his step mommy."

Tom: "Clare, did I really kill them?"

Clare: "Yes, Tom, you did."

Tom runs away crying with his soccer ball.

Then in the third clip, Tom's like: "I can't live with you anymore." :(

Clare was one evil bitch!!! Love her.

Since da33431 is taking forever to upload new eps, I've decided to watch the very beginning of JP/Craig.

The subtitles during Sarah and Craig's first date was hilarious! :lol:

Okay so when this was airing (Late Nov 2006), did the viewers know that JP and Craig were gonna hookup?

It was always the plan according to Bryan Kirkwood, but I think viewers knew that it would happen a few months after John Paul and Craig met. The build up was great to this story, it was gradual, and they played all the beats.

Storylines are written very differently on British soaps. The building and climax are usually already outlined from the start and the writers have a clear sense of where things are going months before it actually airs.

And oh, as the story goes on, you'll see just how stupid Sarah is, and how the signs were right in front of her face that Craig and John Paul wanted each other. The Craig/John Paul/Sarah/ triangle was intense to watch though. Hannah was involved in the beginning too, she was so in love with Craig and it wrecked her to find out that he was gay and used her in the beginning, that coupled with Sarah's then building modeling career led to Hannah's bout with anorexia.

This week was very good, and other than torrents, I don't know who else might upload episodes for you to watch. :(

I've noticed that there's a lot of funny characters and a lot of humour that's part of the show. Zak is one of my favorite characters. He's a lovable loser. LOL Leila, Giddy, Rhys, Elliot, Michaela, Mercedes, Tom, also make me laugh.

I also noticed that characters disappear for weeks/months and then they just reappear. Like on Monday's episode, Ravi shows up - I haven't seen him since I starated watching in late June. And Caroline last week, who BTW, is pretty hot too. I can't say this enough but there's so many hot women on this show. :)

Toups,

That's what bothers me about that soap. Yes, we need breaks from characters, but you can literally go weeks without seeing your faves and that can be annoying. Though, GH does need to give many of their fan favorites a heavy f'ing break as I'm tired of seeing those people every damn day.
