If there’s something that may deliver you to your senses it’s watching the person you like virtually die from a gunshot wound, as Hollyoaks’ Mercedes McQueen (Jennifer Metcalfe) will attest to.
Sylver McQueen (David Tag) took a bullet for Mercedes when he tried to shield her from the gun carrying Liam Donovan (Jude Monk McGowan), a wrestle between the 2 males over the weapon led to the gun going off and Sylver to lay dying in Mercedes’ arms.
Naturally, Liam legged it, shocked on the mess he’s created and never wanting to clear it up.
Cleo (Nadine Mulkerrin) heard the commotion and got here working to assist, however together with her finger hovering over dialling 999 Sylver begged her not to name for assist.
He was afraid slimy Liam would in some way pin it on Mercedes and that she’d find yourself shedding the boys.
Goldie (Chelsee Healey) chanced on the scene too and was horrified by the sight of her brother’s life pouring away. Cleo known as Mitchell (Imran Adams) who arrived as quick as he may, however when he noticed what was happening instantly brushed his palms of getting something to do with it. Cleo begged him – with out him, Sylver would die.
Mitchell assessed the injury, whereas Goldie confronted Mercedes over the medicine and advised Cleo that if Sylver died it will be her fault for losing time calling Mitchell.
However Mitchell had some excellent news – the bullet missed Sylver’s very important organs and meant he’d make it.
Goldie realised the harshness of her phrases and provided up an apology, nevertheless it was her flip to really feel guilt when she realised it was all partly her fault – she realized that Liam had the gun as a result of he was afraid of the thief terrorising him, and that thief was Joel (Rory Douglas-Velocity).
Liam arrived to apologise to Sylver, who wasn’t in a very forgiving temper and advised him to get misplaced.
However Sylver’s brush with dying might have an exquisite final result – Mercedes was overcome with emotion and advised Sylver that she realised how a lot he meant to her when she thought she was about to lose him, and subsequently by no means wished to let him go once more.
Having no Haribo to hand, she grabbed an onion ring from the onion ring sarnie she’d simply made him and obtained down on one knee – asking him to marry her.
Good grief, can she make her seventh marriage work?
In the meantime Goldie confronts Joel and threatens him over what he’s carried out and he or she’s ready to reveal his soiled little secret…
