Hollyoaks: Discussion Thread

Recommended Posts

I love me some Hollyoaks, especially John Paul and Kieron.

There's so much speculation going around about what's going to happen to Kieron when Craig returns. I think he's a goner (in more ways than one!).

Thursday's show was so good. Newt is obviously a schizophrenic, and Eli is a figment of his mind that's controlling him.

Darren is stupid. He never thinks anything through. However, I guess he doesn't know that it was Kris' dad who died, with whom he had Jack switched identities with.

BTW, Jack is bankrupt and the only saw he can afford to pay off his debts is if he died and his life insurance can cover the costs. So, Darren convinced him to fake his death..

I like how's this is incorporated into Newt's schizophrenia, since the voice inside his head (Eli) is telling him to kill Jack.

This is going to crush Frankie and Steph when they come back.

From Digital Spy

Hollyoaks' gay priest Father Kieron Hobbs is to bow out of the show in September.

The character - played by 26-year-old Jake Hendriks - will meet an untimely demise when he is involved in a plot riddled with twists and turns, culminating in his departure from the village.

Speaking of his time with the Channel 4 soap, he said: "It's been an honour to play such an interesting and unusual character and I hope that I've done Father Kieron justice!

"It's been great being part of the family at Hollyoaks and I'd like to thank everyone for making my time here so enjoyable."

Producer Bryan Kirkwood commented: "In a short space of time Jake has won legions of fans for his role as Father Kieron Hobbs."

He added: "It's been a complex role but Jake has proved himself to be an outstanding actor and I hope viewers enjoy the climax to his story."

Hendriks first appeared in Hollyoaks at the beginning of the year and soon became embroiled in a surprising romance with John Paul McQueen (James Sutton) following the departure of Craig Dean (Guy Burnet).

He filmed his final scenes on Tuesday and celebrated his time with the show at the Alma de Cuba bar in Liverpool last night with various members of the cast and crew, along with some of his closest friends.

I was totally fooled by the beginning of Thursday's episode! I was like, "Not another death!! Not Jack!"

I really liked the Jack/Darren scenes from Wed and Thursday.

Thursday's show was so good. Newt is obviously a schizophrenic, and Eli is a figment of his mind that's controlling him.

Ahh....so that dude with Newt wasn't real. I wondering who he was. How/Why is Newt schizo? He was adopted by Jack and Frankie?

Darren is stupid. He never thinks anything through. However, I guess he doesn't know that it was Kris' dad who died, with whom he had Jack switched identities with.

Speaking of Kris, I guess he's a cross dresser?

BTW, Jack is bankrupt and the only saw he can afford to pay off his debts is if he died and his life insurance can cover the costs. So, Darren convinced him to fake his death..

How did Jack become bankrupt and how did Darren get in debt with the loan sharks?

This is going to crush Frankie and Steph when they come back.

:( Darren or Jack better tell them the truth very quickly.

A little too JER-ish for you, eh? ;):P

Newt is a foster kid that Jack and Frankie took in last fall, he's definitely had a troubled past.

Summary from Wikipedia regarding him being a schizo:

On Friday 20th June, Eli and Newt were set to run away together and restart a life on their own. Newt says his last feeble goodbyes to Lauren and Jack who do not suspect that Newt will be gone forever. He meets Eli at the bus stop and they reflect upon their plans. Meanwhile, Lauren watches one of Newt's many tapes and sees that it was him, not Eli, who wrote threatening messages onto the Dean Residence walls. She sees Newt graffiting and smiling at the camera. Meanwhile, Eli and Newt start chanting 'Eli's gonna get you.' They chant this until Eli fizzles away from the shot, leading the viewers to realise that Eli is really a figment of Newt's imagination, and not a real person. This may therefore show that Newt is actually a schizophrenic. Newt's mental health will be revealed on the 7th August 2008.

Speaking of Kris, I guess he's a cross dresser?

Well, kind of, he's a gay man who loves wearing female clothing. LOL!

How did Jack become bankrupt and how did Darren get in debt with the loan sharks?

Darren lost his half of The Dog (the pub/place where Jack, Frankie, and Darren lives) in a game of poker to Warren. In order to get Darren's half back, Jack took out a loan. However, this caused him to go into huge debt, which is only getting worse.

Darren had a gambling addiction that set the whole thing off earlier in the year. Jack and the rest of the Osborne/Dean family disowned him for a while, but eventually Jack forgave him. Jack suffered a heart attack initially when he learned how Darren lost his half of The Dog.

Darren's gambling problems got so bad that he started stealing Frankie's jewlerly to pay off his debts. Jack initially thought it was Newt who was the theif, so he kicked Newt out. He eventually invited Newt to come back, but since then "Eli" has been telling Newt that Jack wants to send him back into the foster care system and the only way to stop this is if he kills Jack.

:( Darren or Jack better tell them the truth very quickly.

Darren is trying to cover his own ass, most of this is his fault. LOL!

Jack will make his grand return at his own funeral.

It was really JER-ish. It's just that the editing of the scenes at the opening fooled me.

Summary from Wikipedia regarding him being a schizo:

Woah, that scene must've been really good. It's very Sixth Sense-ish.

Thanks for the backstory. ;)

While I love Hollyoaks, I need another international soap to watch (in addition to Hollyoaks). Any recommendations?

EastEnders is pretty good right now as well, and Coronation Street is also getting better at the moment.

You might like Emmerdale, I think out of all the UK soaps, it's probably closer to American daytime soaps, as it can be sleezy and trashy at times. I personally can't stand the show though. :lol:

Last Friday and Monday's episodes were AMAZING! Wow, Newt is going crazy by blaming himself for Jack's death, and it's nice to see sympathetic side of Darren, even if he's concealing a lie. This whole thing is really screwing him up, and it's nice to feel for him, since he's an otherwise unsympathetic character.

The family drama invovled in all of this is outstanding, and Ashley Taylor Dawson (Darren) is really acting his ass off, this is probably the best acting I've ever seen him do.

When is Craig's return, Anita? It's just weird that they haven't mentioned him, as he's Frankie's son, Steph's brother, and was close to Jack and Darren.

He suppose to be back end of August beginning September. I cant wait. From what James Sutton states its a lot of drama coming and he is really proud of it. Guy Burnet who play JP is doing a back stage video tomarrow so hopely we get some spolier. He will be filming with Steph, JP and Naill.

I just saw the baby shower by the Mcqueens talk about classic. I was laughing so much. They truely are a crazy family. I felt so bad for the girl who had the baby and BAM Ross walks in to get Mercedes their divorce papers. It was classic.

I feel for Newt as well and he is coming into his own as well. Boy Jack and Darren are going to see hell when this scam comes out. Frankie is going to kill them.

WOW, Friday's episode was great. I LOVE that Amy's finally left Ste, after he beat her up AGAIN. It's sad that she has yet another baby on the way though, that's the last thing she needs in her life right now. I love how Tina is consoling her though. There was such a theme of parenthood in this episode. Like Amy raising Leah in an abusive relationship and being pregnant, Tina regretting giving Max to Jacqui and Tony, and Kris' bad relationship with his own father. That's why I love Hollyoaks so much, no matter how different everything is, there's always so sort of unifying factor going on somehow.

I've seen Monday's episode too and its even better. :)

So why are Ross/Mercedes getting a divorce?

This past week was the first time I saw Amy/Ste and I'm glad Amy left that abusive psycho. So are both kids Ste's?

Amy's dad beat Ste's ass. LOL

Oh man, I wish Louise was on more! That girl is fine! :wub: And Zoe too! It was my first time seeing her. :wub: Also there was Jacqui in the boots/skirt combo this past week. :wub:

I can't get enough of the Hollyoaks women! :D

So why are Ross/Mercedes getting a divorce?

A summary from Wikipedia. ;)

Warren Adultery

Mercedes and Russ reconciled, but she slept with Warren again on Tina's hen night. Feeling guilty, and perhaps having clearer judgment due to cheating on Russ, Mercedes then asked Russ to marry her (whilst he was planning on asking her the same thing) at the reception for older sister Jacqui's sham wedding to Aleksander.

On the build up to her and Russ' wedding, Mercedes booked the same day as sister Tina's wedding, knowing it's Nana McQueen's birthday, Myra convinced them to have a double wedding. The wedding looked like it was nearly off though when Russ' ex Dannii Carbone returned and Mercedes believed they were back together but Russ and Mercedes sorted it out and Danni left Hollyoaks Village behind. Mercedes once again slept with Warren behind Russ's back during Tina's Hen Night. However, Jacqui found out about the affair the next day because of Mercedes' guilt-ridden demeanor.

When Warren used Mercedes as his alibi (regarding the attempted murder of Clare Cunningham) , Mercedes completely denied it to save her wedding. Warren's girlfriend Louise crashed the wedding to confront Mercedes, but Tina lied about her whereabouts the night of Clare's fall. This resulted in Warren's continued incarceration and Mercedes being plagued by guilt.

The truth is revealed

With Warren's court case fast approaching, Mercedes was receiving threats and pressure from everyone who knows. In August, Russ found out she has been visiting Warren in jail and it didn't take him long to figure out why.

Mercedes' conscience caught up with her and she appeared as a witness at Warren's trial, as she came in at the last minute. After Russ found a note from her in the apartment saying "I'm so sorry. I love you" and he headed to the court in time to see Mercedes takes the stand. She told the court that she was with Warren on the night that Clare was pushed. After hearing that she was in bed with Warren, Russ stormed out of the court room and she attempted to follow him but is stopped when the judge threatens to hold her for interrupting the trial. Her statement later results in Warren's release.

She found Russ and tried to explain she did the right thing not letting an innocent man go to prison, but Russ dished the insults to Mercedes that he should have stayed with Sophie and if it wasn't for Mercedes she would still be alive and says that he wants nothing more to do with her.

Oh, and Mercedes doesn't know that Russ is actually little Max's father through the one night stand he had with Tina. I'd love to see how she reacts to Tina and Jacqui when she finds out. :lol:

So are both kids Ste's?

Leah isn't, but Ste doesn't know. Amy has been trying to pass Leah off as his kid for a long time now. The kid Amy is expecting is Ste's kid though.

Off topic, but one of my favourite Clare scenes is posted on youtube. When OB confront her and slams her into the wall. :lol:

This was the set-up for the Who Pushed Clare mystery. Clare mentions "two for the price of one" as the night Mel and Sophie died. The night they died, Mel was going to expose Clare for the liar and cheater she was (Mel found out that Clare was sleeping with Warren and her illegal activities I think) and was going to tell Max about it. OB already knew and he never liked Clare from the start. Mel and Clare hated one another from the start too, and Mel was battling alcoholism, which made many not believe her claims towards Clare. The irony is by the night that Mel died (along with twin sister, Sophie), she had finally won her battle against alcoholism. Sophie and Mel were close with Max and OB.

Anyway, Justin, who is the brother of Mel and Sophie, overheard this confrontation between OB and Clare and pushed her, which was later revealed. It was a good umbrella story/mystery.

Oh, and by this time Clare had gotten Social Services to take Tom away from Max.
