I hope so too.
JP and Craig could have ended amicably.

I've spent most of the weekend playing catchup from Later to this past week. Now this is the Hollyoaks I remember.

The only thing sticking out is Rhys and Cindy. After all that nonsense over Gilly that he'd chuck Jacqui aside for quickies with Cindy is totally unbelievable.

Is Kirkwood confirmed as replacing Smithwick?

I think Kirkwood is only there in a Producer capacity, but not as the showrunner/HW. I'm once again attempting to watch this show, starting with Hollyoaks Later and the same week of the main show, but one episode of each and it is horrific. I'm going to watch the full week as things could improve once I see other characters, but the style of the show is all wrong, the music is bad and the younger characters still suck. I think Kirkwood is the only person who could get Hollyoaks back where it needs to be. Where are they finding all of these dreadful HWs?

Lucy Allan was the best of the lot because while she lacked vision, she didn't damage the show too much. She kept much of the structure the same as when Kirkland was there and didn't remove too many of his characters. I feel like a GOOD writer could've come in and simply added sharper storylines and we'd have a good show. Instead, every new writer is trying to put their stamp on the show and are gutting it. I haven't seen one clear, strong vision (like Kirkwood) or something that works.

Overall I really havent minded Smithwick. Her run reminds me more of the early 00 era we briefly got on BBC Kids.

I watched. I loved me some Rhys, for nostalgia mostly as the affair story was stupid as shit. But LOVED that Cindy took center stage. And I wonder if history will repeat itself for her and she'll be a single mother all over again.

I agree about Maddie. We needed to see her get her comeuppance. That little tiny scene of Tilly disowning her was just a glimpse, but you can't say the cunt didn't deserve to die.

They should have taken out Barney, too He wasn't even there, but he's a waste of space and too ugly for Hollyoaks. LoL

And I'm with you on basic bitch Ruby. Please leave soon. And while they are at it, I hope Will and Liberty aren't around much longer either.

Maddie totally did have it coming :lol:

And how she so coldly left Neil to die is exactly why she needed to be around longer. She was a soap superbitch cut down in a (very funny) flash just as she was getting really started. It's a cheat.

Plus they were telling a story that very much needs to be told right now with her and Esther and the way they've sent her out has basically made the bully win. Everyone will blame Esther for the deaths because she said to with her dying breath, no one will be able to call the dead girl for what she really was. The completely wrong message to be sending right now to their younger audience when we have teens uploading suicide videos to youtube for the entire world to see.

It really is too bad ... a Clare Devine in training.

What do you think of the new Holly? I already hate her, not that the previous one was anything special, but if it means more story for Cindy I'm all for it. With Kirkwood back on the show, I hope Harry, Tony's son, is brought on soon enough.

She just looks too old for Holly. It wouldn't be as noticable if not for Tom

I don't get why Bart and Esther keep going on about how no one can know what they did when everyone knows what they did?

I think only the people on the bus know about Esther and Bart. Like if Jacqui knew = :shithitfan:

Mama Kane reminds me of Jessie Wallace.

I think they should chem test Callum / Leanne in an opposite's attract sort of thing.

Can Liberty and Will please go away? Awful.

I used to hate Martha Kane, but heaven help me the bitch has grown on me. Lacey & Ash are still basic, though.

Will is such a pissant.

It's really too bad Ally couldn't have been better written because he was fantastically hot.

Will needs to die, a million times over. :bleep:

I find it hilarious that whenever Liberty is in an episode she gets only one or two lines. :chee:
