Hollyoaks spoilers follow.
Hollyoaks star Adam Woodward has hinted to Digital Spy that Summer Ranger's wedding bombshell won't be the end of her revenge against Brody Hudson.
Soap weddings almost never end well, and Brody's nuptials with Summer were no different as they played out in Thursday's (July 15) first-look episode on E4.
While Summer's original plan to implicate Brody in her father's death didn't come to pass, she still managed to embarrass him in front of their wedding guests by refusing to marry him.
Summer also stunned Brody with the bombshell that she'd been having an affair with his ex-girlfriend Sienna Blake. Brody was left speechless as the episode finished on a cliffhanger.
"I think that was the last thing he was expecting," Adam Woodward admitted to us. "There have been previous situations where Brody has noticed some strange circumstances but hasn't quite put two and two together. So I think it does genuinely come as a complete shock through and through."
Even though Summer is the one who has been plotting his downfall, Brody won't actually point the finger of blame at her over the affair.
"I think it's more Sienna [he blames]," the actor hinted. "In his misguided way, Brody ends up blaming Sienna for everything that's happened. Bearing in mind, he doesn't put any stock in Summer having a bad bone in her body!
"So he thinks that because Sienna is the way she is, she could have potentially corrupted Summer and ruined his chances of happiness."
Woodward hinted that Brody and Summer's dynamic will be "complicated" moving forward because the runaway bride is such a "deceptive character".
"I think there's far more revenge for Brody to expect from Summer," he hinted "Even after the wedding, she's got it in for Brody even more because she has properly fallen for Sienna.
"I think the fact that Sienna probably holds some care and love towards Brody makes Summer's quest for revenge even greater."
Thursday's first-look episode is also a culmination of months of mystery over how Summer would or wouldn't pull off her quest for vengeance over Cormac's death.
"Soap has a tendency for stories to take quite a while to develop," he said. "It's been nice to see all of the build-up and the work that we've done setting up the story, now all start to come out.
"There's some really interesting scripts for these episodes and it's always great to work with the cast that I do."
Hollyoaks currently airs new episodes from Mondays to Fridays at 6.30pm on Channel 4, with first look screenings at 7pm on E4.
