So it looks like Mercedes McQueen could hold a HUGE clue in the Who Killed Amy Barnes drama. Because we all knew it was too obvious and unlikely to be Ste Hays, right?
Mercedes gets sucked into the mystery when Ste’s fiance, Harry Thompson, goes on a large one to prove his beloved couldn’t be guilty of murder.
Harry gets some Sherlock feels and hopes to gather enough evidence to prove Ste’s innocence.
As Hollyoaks fans know, Ste recently confessed to killing Amy Barnes, but we’ve all known that it could never be that simple.
Ste’s lover is also convinced of his innocence and he’s going all out to prove it to everyone.
The teen pesters James Nightingale, until he ends up getting a warning from Amy’s widower, Ryan Knight, to stay out of police matters.
However, Harry ignores the warnings and puts up posters around the village, hoping they will trigger someone’s memory. He also uses Tony to create a diversion in court.
Mercedes’ memory is triggered by the posters when she recalls more about the person she saw going into Amy’s flat on the night of the murder.
Harry’s attempts to prove Ste’s innocence are very admirable. Although some viewers think that it’s based on guilt as much as love.
He is so convinced his lover is not to blame – they suspect – because HE is Amy’s killer.
Parry Glasspool, who plays him, can totally see why fans think Harry is guilty.
“When I watched that week of episodes, even I thought, ‘Wow, I look really guilty’,” he told Inside Soap magazine.
“But it’s interesting to see how everyone has been reacting to it all because somebody is always doing something suspicious.
“I don’t know who the killer is either, and I’ve thought about it so much I couldn’t even hazard a guess.”
