The SteDen fans are going a little bit crazy because Emmett J. Scanlan visited the Hollyoaks set. Which just happened to be on the 10 year anniversary of when Brendan Brady left the village and while they were taping scenes for the upcoming Ste and James wedding.

I wonder if Lucas will develop a crush on Charlie?

Sorry—Ste and WHO?

Punched out watching years ago, but last I’d heard Harry had just died, and James was more or less settled that the love of his life was gone and that was it for him. And Ste couldn’t stand James for all the shit he’d put him through in the past, which I liked and appreciated because it gave us a rare instance in soap of two gay men as enemies who hated each other enough not to hook up or fall for each other. So much for that.

R4 it’s vile to me how people ship Stendan like it’s a romantic love story (it’s just a toxic power play), but then turn around and say it’s wrong for anyone to ship Stamy. Why?

The same type of horrible domestic and sexual abuse happened with both. The difference was that Ste at least tried and kept trying sincerely to redeem himself to Amy (whether or not he succeeded ymmv), while Brendan just disappeared and never atoned. But to say one is this grand sweeping love story and the other is not just shows how warped some people are. Either both are abuse or neither is.

It’s also biphobic, the way Ste is handled. He’s not a Kinsey 6 gay man and that is evident from his relationship history onscreen, but fans and writers will not have this and try to retcon it, presumably at the actor’s behest. Sorry, but you can’t rewrite established history and expect people not to notice.

The Jarry storyline instantiates a huge bag fumble for Oaks. It was bringing in so many viewers, higher ratings than before or after. They should have begged Parry Glasspool to stay and thrown a massive wage bump at him. It would have more than paid for itself.

R2 lol funny to see that Nancy's never really changed. Still the same bossy fingerwagging moral crusader she always was.

A bit odd and anachronistic that Charlie calls her 'The Demon Headmistress' in that scene. He's referencing a kids' book & tv series, 'The Demon Headmaster', that was popular long before he was even born. Poor writers sometimes slip up with these kind of references, especially when it's older people writing for a young cast.

R35 Yes, as the new spoilers are hinting at, and Carter will drag Lucas into it. I know the show changed producers lately, but it looks like the conversion storyline is still a go.

by Anonymousreply 37December 26, 2023 8:20 AM

The duo listed as the producers right now are said to be temporary placeholders till they figure out who they want to be EP, but (imo) the conversion story was one of the better ones left behind, so not surprised that it's still a go.

Plus, the former EP basically hired David Ames (Carter) to play out this story, as well as aged Lucas with a recast (a very good one, I might add). It's also something of an umbrella story, as it involves three of the core families (McQueens, Hay-Nightingales, and Maaliks).

by Anonymousreply 38December 26, 2023 8:24 PM

R38 Yes. I was a bit worried they would scrap Lucas and Dillon, because Oscar Curtis (the actor playing Lucas) was literally brought on for his storyline with Dillon. But that was almost a year ago. Then all of a sudden in the fall they announced the conversion storyline with Carter and that it would involve Lucas. I think the previous producers had originally something else planned for Lucas, maybe just your run of the mill coming out story, but then decided to push it back to instead tie it in with the conversion story.

I'm still wondering how it will play out though. If these are just temprorary producers, what will happen when the new ones come on? Will they scrap the story with Lucas and Dillon? What will happen to the conversion story? Will they keep it as is or make changes to it? Maybe shorten it?

by Anonymousreply 39December 26, 2023 9:01 PM

Well with John Paul already knowledgeable about Carter's gay conversion activities, plus the fact that JP is one of Lucas' teachers at the school, I wouldn't doubt that JP will eventually discover what's going on between Carter and Lucas - perhaps from fellow-student Dillon who seems very protective of Lucas. Due to Lucas being a minor, this could be the last straw for JP, and he'll make good on his threat to out Carter.

by Anonymousreply 40December 26, 2023 10:29 PM

R40 I think this is exactly how it will play out! As for the January spoilers: I think Dillon will confront Lucas about Lucas trying to kiss him when drunk. Lucas will deny it and yell at him, like he always does. I think Carter will overhear, and take advantage of Lucas being confused and vulnerable.

by Anonymousreply 41December 27, 2023 1:06 PM

Welll... I was wrong about Carter overhearing them. It's actually Ste who asks Carter for help because Lucas is acting out again. And the almost kiss happens during football training. So I'm guessing they're just gonna ignore the almost kiss on Christmas Day then.

R45 In the six-second clip they released of the upcoming trailer, Ste is dressed in a wedding tux - more than likely for Sienna's upcoming wedding. We see her in wedding gown as well. .. Anyway, there appears to be a massive car accident. Firefighters Leela and Joel are on the scene. The only thing you can see of Ste in this snippet is him bending over what looks like a body on the ground. .. I slowed that part way down. I think the arm of the victim looks long and thin, like a woman's. I imagine Ste would go into hysterical mode if it was his BFF Sienna. .. Mercedes, Warren, and Felix appear to be in at least one other vehicle.

I find Leah totally annoying. .. I've often wished she'd go reside with Grandpa Barnes. .. The actress has this annoying habit of telegraphing her response to others in scenes and generally looks like she's sucking on a lemon. .. I can't see how any guy would be interested in her. .. But I somehow doubt they'd kill her off. .. Playing something as traumatic as that along with the upcoming Lucas-Carter material and the melodrama we already have between Ste & James seems like too much for the Nightingale-Hay household.

If Hollyoaks is still outsourcing the creation of promos, trailers and opening credits, then the people who create and/or edit those aren't necessarily the same who edit the show for broadcast. There used to be this really nice guy who had a blog on tumblr where he'd put stuff up. He worked on quite a few such projects as a freelance editor for both regular Hollyoaks and Hollyoaks Later, but he had nothing to do with the daily broadcast of the show itself. He'd gladly interface with people and answer questions. I remember people would continually bug him about why so and so wasn't in the opening credits.

R62 The scene of Lucas and Dillon on the floor smiling at each oher. They cut it so you can't see Dillon smiling at Lucas anymore. I don't buy the excuse from some fans of the show saying "they cut it because it was too long for broadcast". BULLSHIT. The scene was 3 seconds long, max. It was important for establishing the fact that Dillon also has feelings for Lucas. It's not a one way thing, it's actually mutual. They zoomed in on the kids for many seconds before they went back to Dillon and Lucas. Why not cut back on showing the kids in the stands and instead 3 seconds more on Lucas and Dillon?! It's like some homophobic boss said "we can't have two boys smiling at each other on the floor, that's too gay"🙄 It's funny how they ALWAYS cut Dillon and Lucas scenes (it's the third time now), yet NEVER cut the most boring shit, like Rafe, Dilly and Sienna, who nobody cares about. The fact is Dillon and Lucas get so little screen time as is, they need all the seconds they can get. Removing huge chunks of their scenes is insulting and offensive. I'm convinced some homophobic boss asked for it to be removed.

R75 "Pansexual" means Dillon could be attracted to any individual regardless of their sex or gender identity. So for example, he could also go for someone like Sally (trans) or Phoenix (non-binary, apparently now transitioning), etc. Some definitions of "pansexual" use the term "gender blind."

With this new predicament, it might be time to rest the Ste character for awhile.

I could see Ste pleading guilty to vehicular manslaughter and receiving a reduced sentence due to what caused his reckless driving and admission of guilt. .. He's given four years, with the hope of being out after serving two. .. Stepfather James promises to take care of Leah and Lucas while he's gone.

Ste's final scene would be his intake at the penitentiary after which the guards lead "Hay" down a long corridor to a cell, where we see another prisoner sitting in the shadows. .. When Hay's new cellmate turns around, he says, "Hello, Ste." .. It's Brendan.

The Stendan stans can fill in the rest with their slash fiction, and Ste can return in two years ... or not.

My jaw dropped when Joel got hit at the crash site. Sometimes soaps can still shock.

I'm glad Myra reminded guilt-ridden Mercedes that Warren killed Bart, and that murder was no accident in any way, shape, or form. The nlackmailing Ella would have gotten the booze one way or another.

I thought they should have had Cleo remind Warren about Bart as well (when she stopped him from pommeling Felix), since Cleo was right in the middle of that whole drug addict story with Bart and Joel, with Warren mistakenly thinking Bart had provided the heroin that killed his sister, Katy (thereby murdering Bart with his bare hands) (when it turned out that his own son, Joel, who was the actual supplier.

On another note, I'm quickly reminded how much Cleo and her hair bun bug me.

Looking forward to seeing Rita Simons begin as Joel's mother, Marie.

As said above, I'm pretty much enjoying the whole show right now. I am wondering who might get cut, since they seem to be adding quite a few characters.

Hannah was okay with keeping things quiet, but I'm guessing now that she's overheard nasty Carter and Gareth talking she'll think otherwise. .. Since we know she needs money, maybe she'll try to blackmail Carter.

Kind of dumb for them to write that Tom goes to Peri looking for a place to live - IOW, far too obvious that it would lead to them hooking up. .. After all, Tom owns the house where all the twentysomethings live, and the place has just had five vacancies (Lacey, Prince, Rayne, Nadira, and now Romeo). .. There should be spare bedrooms galore.

And if Carter is dumpling John Paul (AGAIN), shouldn't JP at least follow-through on telling Maxine about his affair with Carter? .. At t his point, Carter wouldn't be able to fire JP, without risking his his own job now. Carter's had sex with a subordinate, and JP could not only blow his cover at the school, but sue for harassment, if Carter retaliated.

Romeo. ... I know it's a TV show, but he's been in prison for awhile now, yet his fade haircut and three-day scruff remain perfect. .. He should have a hot cellmate who thinks his lips are purty.

Horrible spoilers. Nothing I want to see. Such a cliche with Dillon getting a girlfriend. I know he's pansexual, but still. I was hoping he'd get a boyfriend. It's a lost opportunity. On the other hand Lucas made his choice. He kept pushing Dillon away, and now that Dillon has a girlfriend, now he feels uncomfortable and now he wants him? A bit too late mate.

R104 According to the spoilers Dillon is gonna fuck Freya while Lucas watches. Sounds like true love alright.

Have you watched Hollyoaks before?

"One and only forever" isn't typically in their lexicon for young couples until someone's gonna die.

I posted them before I finished watching them. LOL the melodramatic cliffhanger. The acting leaves a lot to be desired, but Lucas is adorable and I hope he comes out of all this well.

For regular watchers: Is the creepy principal currently fucking the hot asst. principal?

R113 Closet-case Carter (the head teacher) was fucking openly-gay John Paul (a deputy head teacher), but Carter ended things with John Paul (again), after Gareth, one of Carter's church disciples who's also a member of his gay conversion group, saw the two of them kissing and blackmailed Carter.

Thanks R114!

Carter is despicable.

James is an unattractive stereotype.

Leah is butt-ugly. (and that's not intended as an insult to nice men's butts)

When will Dillon and Lucas finally kiss?!

by Anonymousreply 116February 14, 2024 1:34 AM

Lucas gets a new friend in smart-ass Frankie. Hopefully, she's not dumb enough to want to be his girlfriend, or at least smart enough to figure it out.

Nancy's on the case and gets suspicious of Carter's "counseling," especially after she finds his whiteboards in a locked cabinet.

It's interesting how they hired three gay actors to play the men in the conversion therapy group: David Ames (Carter), Peter McPherson (Gareth), and now Alan Turkington as "Declan Hawthorne," who might be even more toxic that Carter.

Bad timing Scott! ... But he's not dense, so I imagine the bit he witnessed between Lucas and Dillon, as well as Lucas' upcoming conversation with Scott will result in Scott cluing John Paul in as to what's going on with the lad.

I can't watch this anymore. I'm done. It's boring and the writing is horrible. It's just repeptitive now... Lucas and Dillon almost kissing, Carter ruining the moment. Rinse, repeat. And it's homophobic that they haven't even kissed yet. It's been months ffs! The lesbians kissed early on, then the angst happened. Meanwhile the teenage gays on Hollyoaks had the angst first, then will probably a kiss after forever. It's dumb, it's a horrible strategy, borderline homophobic and will cause people to switch it off. And when they finally do kiss it will have been so long that people don't care anymore. BTW, Dillon has had sex with a girl (of course) and now Lucas will get with Frankie (of coursex2). Both having a girlfriend in a gay storyline is a disgrace. This is just horrible garbage as this point. Truly unwatchable. They're basically doing everything wrong. I lost interest a month ago.

The gay conversion story has been well-crafted and acted, imo. All of the gays in the village are now connected to it somehow, even Scott. With the most recent foot-dragging on banning conversion therapy in the UK, the show has chosen a great time to highlight this important subject.

Pretty sure R126 meant to tag either R122 or R124, who made acting comments; and R127 meant to tag R124 and not R134, because there are currently fewer than 129 replies in this thread.

Geez .. Hollyoaks remains one of the most gay-supportive serial dramas on the planet. Calling the show "homophobic" is eye-rolling.

And just because the anxious 15-year old schoolboy hasn't kissed the self-confident older boy doesn't mean the show is homophobic. It could simply mean they're doing "the slow-burn," so often part of soap opera stroylines. Plus, in this particular case, the evil gay conversion manipulators probably wouldn't have stood a chance of roping confused Lucas into their vile efforts to turn him straight, if he'd already tasted Dillon's lips.

Nice touch showing poor Lucas sadly staring into the mirror at the end of the "therapy session" with a segue to John Paul and the McQueens joyfully dancing to "Born this Way."

Spring Trailer .. five quick takeaways ..

Grace returns ... albeit from prison and is working with Freddie.

Kitty and Freddie .. didn't see that one coming.

Hannah is back .. apparently working as a prostitute with Robbie (who's gotten fat) acting as her pimp?

Carter kidnaps Lucas.

Things appear to reach a head during the Pride event.

Frustrated and horny, Lucas lies about his age again, but this time, he goes online looking for a meaningless hook up with a guy, and they head off to The Loft.

If I had to guess, this is probably what leads to Carter kidnapping Lucas.

Who's "they"? .. Just some user who puts clips up on youtube?

Hollyoaks itself hasn't turned anything off.

Yes, Carter is meant to be a despicable creature .. i.e. a villain. .. He's also treating Ro the same way.
