Hollyoaks' Dilly Harcourt piles pressure on Ethan Williams after death drama

Hollyoaks spoilers follow from Thursday's episode on Channel 4 streaming, which doesn't air on E4 until Friday.

Dilly Harcourt piled the pressure on Ethan Williams on Hollyoaks following the death of Rafe.

The twisty storyline came to a head earlier this week, with Sienna discovering that Dilly was not only Rafe’s wife, but also her half-sister.

The plot thickened as Dilly revealed that she had killed Rafe as revenge for him falling in love with Sienna, with Ethan proving to be a surprise ally as she sought to keep her head low.

Tonight’s (February 8) first-look episode began with Dilly waking in the back of Ethan’s van, before she subsequently explained that Rafe’s death was an accident. Ethan was evidently wary of putting too much faith in Dilly, though she pleaded with him to support her as he was the only person she could trust.

He later kept up the ruse as Sienna pressed for information, with the latter remarking that Dilly needed “locking up” irrespective of her familial bond.

Sienna's character assessment wasn't far from the mark, with Dilly turning the tables on Ethan as they returned home.

He explained that she could stay at his house for the week as it was vacant, but she attempted to blackmail him by highlighting his complicity in her evasion from the police, proclaiming they were now "in it together".

As Dilly fell asleep, Ethan was left pondering as to whether he had made a mistake in hiding the fugitive; will he pay for his misplaced faith?

Hollyoaks streams first online via Channel 4 each weekday at 7.30pm. Episodes then air on E4 the following day, before getting their YouTube premiere a week after that.

Selected omnibus episodes are available via Prime Video.
