Hollyoaks spoilers follow.
Next week on Hollyoaks, Liberty's loved ones are baffled as she disappears from the village with little explanation.
Elsewhere, Sally steps up her efforts to free John Paul, while Shaq confides in Verity over his father.
Here's a full collection of 11 big moments coming up.
1. Liberty goes missing
Liberty does a sudden disappearing act from the village after discovering Sienna's secret affair with Summer. Suspiciously, Sienna threatened Liberty shortly before she went missing.
Liberty's loved ones start to search for her, but Damon then receives an unusual text message that is supposedly from her, claiming that she needs some time away.
2. Summer suffers a setback
Damon gets upset when he later finds a goodbye letter from Liberty and assumes that she must have left him.
Liberty's disappearance makes an impact on Summer, as Brody suggests they should postpone their wedding until Liberty has been found. Still firmly focused on her revenge plans, Summer doesn't want the wedding to be cancelled.
Summer also gradually starts to feel divided loyalties as she considers her genuine feelings for Sienna. She isn't sure how to continue with her revenge plans without hurting Sienna in the process, leaving her with a dilemma.
3. Summer starts to lose patience
As the search for Liberty continues, Brody comes up with a romantic gesture by giving Summer his grandma's bracelet, which she wore on her own wedding day.
Summer is struggling to be around Brody and writes in her diary that she isn't sure how much more she can take.
4. Sally's guilt increases
Sally continues to struggle with the knowledge that John Paul is locked away in prison for a crime that she committed. She tries her best to help James with the case, but the lawyer points out that – since John Paul has made a false confession – the best they can do now is try to minimise his sentence.
The pressure increases on Sally when John Paul's son Matthew-Jesus overhears her talking to Theresa about the situation and mistakenly thinks that John Paul is guilty.
As it all becomes too much, Sally calls Mercedes and Sylver, revealing that she has something to tell them.
5. Sally makes a drastic plan
Sally decides to renew her efforts to convince the police that she's responsible for George's death, rather than John Paul. She plans to film a re-enactment of the murder, which would be presented as fake dash cam footage.
Sally recruits the McQueen family to help with her plan and even casts Sylver in the role of George.
Although the McQueens aren't too impressed by Sally's ambitious plans, Mercedes is given food for thought when John Paul phones and reveals that the prison guards are being tough with him.
Mercedes finally decides to help Sally, but the family's new scheme doesn't go to plan.
6. Sally finds a surprising new ally
Sally resorts to Plan B by asking for PC Smith's help to get herself sent down for George's murder. PC Smith suggests that they need a sample of Sally's blood to use as evidence.
Theresa worries when she finds out that Sally has teamed up with PC Smith, reminding her that the corrupt copper can't be trusted. Sally stands firm over her plans and starts to say her goodbyes to the McQueens.
7. Martine is supported by Grace
As Martine continues to go through treatment for breast cancer, Grace is determined to cheer her up. Grace surprises Martine with brunch, although her culinary offerings are burnt.
Courtney joins Martine and Grace for some fun at The Loft. With Martine keen to enjoy herself, Grace convinces her to show off her flight attendant flirtation skills.
8. Shaq is put to the test
Shaq is still struggling to find a permanent job, so he asks Sami if there's any work going at the law firm.
Verity is sceptical that Shaq is the right fit for the business, so she bets Sami that Shaq wouldn't be able to hand an important document into court without messing it up somehow. Sami can't resist accepting the bet – and all eyes are on Shaq to see if he pulls it off.
Later in the week, how will Shaq react when he overhears Verity and Sami both joking about his capabilities?
9. Shaq wants to find his father
Shaq decides to confide in Verity about what happened on the day before his wedding, which led to him fleeing from the ceremony and coming to the village.
Shaq explains that he discovered his dad wasn't his biological father. Verity suggests that Shaq should seek some answers from Misbah.
10. Ripley tries to help Brooke
Ripley is intrigued when Imran mentions a DJ festival live stream rave that's coming up. Ripley hopes to go with Brooke, but Brooke is strapped for cash.
Ripley suggests that Brooke should look into getting a job, but Brooke doubts their suitability as so many entry-level jobs involve interacting face-to-face with customers. Ripley tries to help by giving Brooke some job interview prep.
11. Cher questions Romeo
Cher is still being trolled online, but Romeo fails to see how much she's struggling. Cher starts searching for information on skin bleaching creams, wanting to remove her birth mark.
Romeo tries to reassure Cher that he thinks the birth mark is cute, but she's not convinced and starts asking why he has stopped spending time with her.
