We won’t lie. When Ste Hays got sent to prison for killing Amy Barnes, we were secretly hoping there would be a ‘Stendan’ reunion behind bars.
Maybe a spin-off. Maybe we have too much time on our hands.
Anyway, those dreams are clearly NOT coming true as Harry Thompson discovers in Hollyoaks next week.
Ste’s current lover is blackmailed into smuggling drugs into the prison by Ste’s fellow inmate Woody.
Woody says that Ste will get hurt unless Harry does what he asks – smuggle in drugs.
Poor Hazza is totally shocked by the threats and becomes even more concerned that attempts to free Ste aren’t getting anywhere.
Tony Hutchinson sees how Woody’s threats have affected his teenage son and turns to Ste’s (dodgy) lawyer, James Nightingale, for advice.
James offers to get Ste moved to another prison (Brendan’s! Brendan’s!) but Harry has another plan he thinks could help.
Buuuuuuuut, it could actually put Ste in more danger.
Ste was banged up earlier this year when he confessed to killing former lover and mother of his children, Amy Barnes.
Since then, Ste and Harry have realised Ste’s memories of murdering Amy are false and he pleaded not guilty at his hearing.
Ste remains the Hollyoaks police no.1 suspect even though more potential killers are starting to emerge…
Who do you think killed Amy? What body part would you sell for a Brendan Brady return?
