Hollyoaks spoilers: Is a mystery arrival at the police station the key to evil Buster Smiths downfall?
After a violent outburst from Luke Morgan and Brody Hudson realising that he cant go through with testifying, evil Buster Smithy is hopeful that he might evade punishment for his deplorable crimes in Hollyoaks as his trial continues. But a figure approaching the police station could well be another final nail in the predators coffin – will he also speak out about abuse suffered at the depraved coachs hands?
In an emotional episode, Ollie Morgan bravely arrived at court at the last minute, courageously giving evidence via a video link, watched by a tearful Mandy and Darren. Soon, he was being put on the spot by Busters barrister, who was trying to imply that he was making up his allegations in order to get attention from his alcoholic dad but Ollie did himself proud, standing his ground and determined to get justice for himself and everyone else targeted by Buster.
Luke then arrived in the back of a police van to give evidence and Mandy worried that he wouldnt hold it together – a fear which would soon prove justified. Faced with seeing Buster again in the flesh and also watched by his ex and his best friend, now a couple, Luke started to feel waves of anger.
The barrister pushed his buttons and deliberately pressed him on his own history of abuse and Luke snapped, screaming at Buster that he would kill him for what he has done to Ollie. Luke realised that he had made a mistake and desperately apologised as he was ejected from the court.
And, seeing what had transpired, Brodys own anxieties reached new heights as he took the stand. Unable to speak, he fled the courtroom and was violently sick as his loved ones tried to console him.
Back in the court, Buster hoped that the case against him might fall apart without Brodys evidence but over at a police station, a young man arrived looking anxious but also full of purpose.
Is another witness about to come forward and bring Buster down?
