A frustrated Sylver McQueen explodes when his wife Mercedes admits she's been taking drugs again
Hollyoaks' Sylver McQueen (David Tag) is furious to discover that his wife, Mercedes (Jennifer Metcalfe) has once again deceived him.
Guilty Mercedes, who struggled with seeing her stepson, Max Owen, ruined his birthday celebrations with her manic behaviour and Sylver is not about to let it go. He's appalled to realise his wife is back on the drugs.
A furious Sylver gets her to admit her actions and can’t believe she’s let everyone down again.
As his anger starts to rise, his mum Breda McQueen (Moya Brady) is alarmed to walk in and catch her pent-up son throwing a chair across the room.
Sylver storms off but Breda follows him to his workshop where in a fit of uncontrollable and frustrated rage, he starts smashing things up.
As Sylver vents his fury, Breda attempts to calm him down but soon Sylver is talking about his past and how he can’t live with himself for murdering his step-dad.
Can Breda comfort him and get him to move on or are more revelations about to come to light?
Meanwhile his other half Mercedes is wallowing in the fallout and, full of self-loathing she slinks off to The Loft and asks Liam Donovan (Jude Monk McGowan) to give her more drugs.
Liam, who is secretly in love with Mercedes tries to support her. Will he do what's best for Mercedes and encourage her to clean up her act, or will he give her more supplies?
