Hollyoaks‘ James Nightingale may be one step closer to finding out that he’s got a son after tonight’s (October 18) first-look episode, as Romeo Quinn dropped the bombshell revelation on his friend (and crush) Lily McQueen.
Romeo originally arrived in Chester to track down James – who currently has no idea that he even has a son – before he later decided against introducing himself to his estranged dad and started hanging out with newlyweds Prince and Lily McQueen instead.
Recent episodes have seen Romeo slowly find himself more and more entangled in James’ life, after breaking into his flat and discovering his affair with Harry, before going on to blackmail Harry over the secret and tonight Romeo and James exchanged some heated words.
(Well, it’s a start, we guess.)
Fresh from his confrontation with his dad, Romeo found himself alone with Lily where he opened up about his home life, and the dreams he used to have about his father coming to save him.
“I’d spend hours thinking, ‘Any minute now, he’s going to burst in that door and rescue us’, but he never did,” Romeo told Lily, before he admitted the truth: “My dad’s James Nightingale.”
Of course, Lily wasn’t too thrilled by the news, and she later convinced Romeo that James isn’t worth his time, prompting Romeo to go and get the evidence he needed to ensure he gets that £3000 he wanted.
And if all of that wasn’t dramatic enough, there’s always that storm that’s brewing in Hollyoaks as the soap gears up for its huge disaster week.
With Sinead on her way to break up Ste and Harry’s wedding, James running out of patience with Harry and Romeo possessing more than a few secrets (and photos) that will shake up the lives of everyone involved, James proposes a deal with his son: they’ll work together to expose the affair at Ste and Harry’s wedding.
Is all of this heading for one, dramatic confrontation? We hope so.
Hollyoaks airs weeknights at 6.30pm on Channel 4, with first-look screenings at 7pm on E4.
