Is the net closing in on him? And should he be very, very afraid?
Earlier on his nephew Sam Chen-Williams (Matthew McGivern) invites Ethan to dinner along with his new beau, DS Zoe Anderson (Garcia Brown).
Zoe arrives but it looks like any plans for the cosy little dinner are about to be blown out of the water.

Suddenly all eyes are on Ethan who was the last person known to have seen her in the village.
Will he crack and reveal the terrible truth, that he accidentally killed Maya during a heated tussle?
Or will he stay quiet? In which case how will he cover up his killer crime now that everyone knows that Maya is dead and Ste Hay (Kieron Richardson) and Sienna Blake (Anna Passey) know Ethan’s terrible secret?
Later on, Ste who was blackmailed by Ethan into hiding Maya’s body in the woods, has a big confession to make to his sister, Leela Lomax (Kirsty-Leigh Porter).
Is Ste about to admit that he and his accomplice, Sienna Blake (Anna Passey) helped hide Maya’s corpse?
Things are about to take an even darker turn when detective Zoe’s life is threatened and Sienna goes rogue!

New recruit to Hollyoaks High, Yazz Cunningham (Haiesha Mistry) has some explaining to do to Sally.
