Hollyoaks spoilers follow.
Hollyoaks has set up a new mystery involving the disappearance of Mitchell Deveraux after he went missing on his wedding day.
The Channel 4 soap finally returned to screens tonight (September 7) and followed up its Channel 4 return with a first-look episode on E4 too, and the hour-long trip to Hollyoaks told the dramatic events of Mitchell (Imran Adams) and Scott's (Ross Adams) wedding day as it unfolded in flashbacks (filmed pre-COVID-19).
Despite a rocky start to the day, with Walter (Trevor A Toussaint) finding out about the wedding and threatening not to attend, Scott and Mitchell ultimately decided to go ahead with their wedding anyway.
Thankfully, after a heart-to-heart with Joel (Rory Speed-Douglas) back at the village in which he opened up about the death of his brother, Walter arrived just in time to see his grandson tie the knot.
But while Mitchell was overjoyed to have his grandfather there at his wedding, Mitchell's brother Toby (Bobby Gordon) was furious that Mitchell managed to get his happy ending, despite his attempts to sabotage the wedding.
And when Walter let slip that Toby was the one who told him about the wedding in the first place, Mitchell wasted no time in confronting his brother about his actions, with sister Celeste (Andrea Ali) arriving in the middle of the argument too.
"Everything always goes your way, doesn't it?" Toby taunted.
"I used to feel sorry for you," Mitchell replied. "But today you messed with my husband, and that's crossing a line [...] you're an experiment gone wrong."
At the end of the episode, Mitchell was seen going for a lie down in the grooms' room, before Toby was later seen sneaking into the room too and attacking the figure on the bed in a rage.
Meanwhile, in the present day, several characters were left to face police interviews about the events of the wedding day as they were investigating a missing persons case a couple of months down the line.
And the one person who was suspiciously absent from the police interviews was Mitchell himself.
Did Toby kill Mitchell on his wedding day?
Hollyoaks airs weekdays at 6.30pm on Channel 4, with first-look episodes at 7pm on E4.
