Hollyoaks shocked viewers with a crucial finale scene in the love triangle between Sami Maalik, Shaq Qureshi and Verity Hutchinson.
In the episode that aired on September 2, Shaq (Omar Malik) couldn't hide his feelings for his cousin's girlfriend, Verity (Eva O'Hara).
Verity is currently in a relationship with Sami, while Shaq is dating Theresa McQueen (Jorgie Porter). Despite previously denying to Verity that he had any feelings for her when she confronted him, Shaq came clean in an emotional segment.
Shaq visited Verity looking for advice about the recent discovery concerning his biological father. However, it seemed like he had something else on his mind as well.
"I hate myself for what I'm doing to Sami," he told Verity. "Feeling something for his girl while I shouldn't."
On her part, Verity didn't seem particularly surprised at the revelation, and after a moment of hesitation, she admitted to having feelings for Shaq too.
"Maybe his girl feels something for you," she said as she locked the door to her office and then looked him in the eye exclaiming: "She does".
The episode ended in a passionate, secret kiss between Shaq and Verity, hinting there might be more that viewers won't get to see. The betrayal stung even more as Shaq and Sami had patched things up and vowed to be brothers, even if not related by blood.
Hollyoaks airs new episodes from Mondays to Fridays at 6.30pm on Channel 4, with first-look screenings at 7pm on E4. Selected omnibus episodes are available via Amazon Prime Video.
