2. Brooke reunites with their son
In recent scenes of the long-running soap, Thierry was a mere mention as Brooke Hathaway (played by Tylan Grant) tried to come to terms with their estrangement from the boy’s life.
However, Ollie Morgan (Gabriel Clark) is set to reunite with his estranged biological son this week and his family urge him to tell Brooke.
Ollie refuses and decides to keep Thierry’s arrival in Chester to himself.
But the cat eventually comes out of the bag when Cindy puts her foot in it, letting the news slip during a conversation with Brooke.
They decide to immediately confront Ollie but, upon finding him, are faced with their son and his adoptive parents.
Brooke finds themselves alone with Thierry once backs are turned.
Unfortunately, things don’t go well as a misunderstanding leads to panic.
But there’s more turmoil ahead for them.

In later scenes, Brooke doesn’t know how to feel after their emotional encounter with Thierry, who they had thought would never be seen again.
Thankfully, Brooke can rely on partner Ripley Lennox (Ki Griffin) for support.
Ripley suggests they speak to Ollie about the reunion but a comment from Brooke makes them reconsider their entire relationship.
Overwhelmed with the fear that they can’t give Brooke what they want or even deserve, Ripley has a difficult decision ahead of them.

4. James is in trouble again
Meanwhile, James Nightingale (Gregory Finnegan) is still struggling and experiencing money woes.
This week, James panics as he is fighting against time to find the money to pay back Bruce fast.
James clearly hasn’t learned from his troubles with the law as he soon resorts to scamming one of the Hollyoaks villagers.
Donna-Marie has had enough of his antics and turns her back on him… but Ste surprisingly flies to the rescue.
Later, Ste defends a possible reunion between him and James while Leela questions whether the latter can be trusted in his change of behaviour.
Ste will perhaps have more to worry about, however, since Maya’s murder investigation could also involve some comeuppance for him and Sienna.
