Mercedes and Sylver McQueen (Jennifer Metcalfe and David Tag) were left fearing for their lives in Hollyoaks tonight (October 15), as a creepy doll demanded that they pay for their sins.
Viewers will know that various members of the McQueen clan have been receiving sinister and threatening text messages.
The messages in question informed each of them that they will pay for their sins, but tonight’s instalment — the first of a series of special episodes to celebrate the Channel 4 soap’s 25th anniversary — saw things take a sinister turn.
The McQueens congregated in The Dog to discuss the blackmail — with returnee Theresa (Jorgie Porter) among them.
Mercedes was dead set against paying up, but matters became somewhat more complicated when a creepy doll appeared before them.
Said creepy doll spoke, informing them all that if they fail to comply with its demands, then each of their deepest and darkest secrets will be revealed — and thus they’ll go to jail!
The blackmailer wanted £700, but again, Mercedes was adamant that they stand their ground and refuse to pay. Therefore, she entered the ‘No’ option on the creepy doll.
However, as she prepared to dispose of it, the doll came back to life — just as the lights in the pub went out!
With Mercedes and Sylver fearing for their lives, the doll revealed that — since they refused to pay up — they now have to pay £7,000 per sin or it’ll reveal all of their sins one by one!
The countdown began — giving the couple less than 18 hours to get the money together!
Hollyoaks continues Monday October 19 at 7pm on E4. A classic favourite airs tomorrow night at 7pm.
