Viewers know that DeMarcus had previously armed himself with a knife thinking it would protect him from violent bully, Joseph. 

However, it’s unclear exactly how Saul got stabbed and more importantly, WHO was to blame.

Tonight a shocking flashback reveals to the viewers the truth behind the knife attack but will the true facts be made clear to the Hollyoaks villagers? 

Or will someone be wrongly accused of the stabbing?

Mason turns to the internet to do some research and stumbles across Eric Foster’s (Angus Castle-Doughty) twisted posts! 

Eric, the younger brother of Tony Hutchinson (Nick Pickard) and Verity (Eva O’Hara)  is an ‘incel’ or involuntary celibate and belongs to a community of men who consider themselves unable to attract women, and who are therefore hostile towards them. 

Will teenager Mason be influenced by the strong words that Eric has written?
