Ste (Kieron Richardson) is to kidnap rapist Finn (Keith Rice) next week in a bid to get him to confess to sexually assaulting John Paul (James Sutton).
In the episode airing on Channel 4 on Wednesday 13 August, Ste will be seen abducting Finn and tying him up at a disused petrol station. Ste will then threaten to kill him unless he confesses to raping John Paul.
“Finn’s walking through the village when Ste suddenly launches himself at him,” says actor Kieron Richardson, who plays Ste. “He pushes him up against a wall – and the next thing you see, Ste’s got Finn tied up at a disused petrol station. He’s absolutely seething and wants answers.”
The confrontation comes after Ste becomes suspicious that Finn was the person who attacked John Paul. After witnessing an argument between Finn and his victim, he decides to take the law into his own hands and make Finn pay.
“Ste doesn’t know how to deal with the situation,” Richardson comments to Inside Soap. “He wants Finn to say the words ‘I raped John Paul’ out loud. But Finn won’t admit to anything and it leads to a scene where Ste is about to punch his lights out.”
So will Finn end up confessing? And what will be the reaction of John Paul when he discovers what’s going on?
