Hollyoaks has revealed the identity of the mystery blackmailer tormenting serial killer Breda McQueen (Moya Brady) – mean Mac Nightingale (David Easter) knows the kooky childminder murdered Louis Loveday, and now he wants her to bump off his son James Nightingale (Gregory Finnegan) in exchange for his silence!
Tuesday 26 February’s E4 episode saw the pressure mount for Breda as her blackmailer who has been forcing her into a series of risky tasks – and is still unknown at this point – ordered her to meet at her parents’ pig farm where she slayed and buried her most recent victim.
Encountering an assailant wearing a sinister pig mask, the threatening figure suggested it must be easy for her to take a life and questioned how much she valued her freedom – could she cope if she went to prison and never saw her family again?
Shaken Breda pleaded with the person who could put her behind bars as they announced she would be forced to carry out one final task… Removing the mask, menacing Mac revealed himself and told the killer McQueen she will have to murder his son James or the police will find out about Louis!
Breda now faces a dilemma – as a fairly moral serial killer she only despatches bad fathers, so will she be go against her own code? Or convince herself James’s rocky relationship with long-lost son Romeo Quinn is enough to put him on her naughty list? Or is this the end of the line for her series of slays, with Mac getting the upper hand? We have a feeling Mr Nightingale will regret crossing nanny Breda…
