Ste’s internet date at first sparked obvious jealousy in Doug and this is when his behaviour began to escalate into the very odd. First he slept with Texas (major denial) and then he attempts to ruin Ste’s date by just well, being there.
In yesterday’s episode, we saw Adam (the internet date) even notice there was something going on between them and broke it off with Ste. After Ste’s initial surprise about Doug’s outburst of ‘You’re the first person I think about each morning and the last person I think about at night,’ he seemed to not be able to get Doug out of his head. Though, yesterday Doug stated that he just wanted to remain friends, today it was awkward to say the least between them until the passionate KISS. Brendan arrives just after though which suggests that he’s probably going to be a problem about all this. Especially as it was Brendan that leant Doug the money for the shop (Ste without any idea of course). UH-OH.
Nice to see Brendan back in the mix with his usual charming and witty banter with Joel and we’ve got a new boy on the block going by the name of Walker. I wonder what his story is? First he gets Cheryl’s number and then turns up at the club saying to Brendan ‘Remember me? He already sounds a bit DODGY!
At the end when Ste said to Doug that Doug’s not ready and he wouldn’t want to be seen with him, (which is true) I think every Hollyoaks fan wanted to cry as we watched Doug’s face drop and him leave. Why is nothing ever simple in these soaps?
