Hollyoaks spoilers follow.
George Kiss has continued his sick coercive control over John Paul McQueen following his latest outburst of physical outburst in Hollyoaks.
Earlier this week, PC Kiss (Callum Kerr) goaded John Paul (James Sutton) into a drunken argument when he gloated over sabotaging his friendship with Nancy, then punched him in a fit of anger.
Thursday's (March 25) E4 episode opened up with John Paul waking the following morning with a bloody nose, trying to piece together what had happened.
"Did we fight last night?" he asked George.
George used the chance to mess with John Paul's mind by angrily storming out of the flat, therefore making it look like his boyfriend had been in the wrong the previous night.
When John Paul asked George to explain to him what happened later on, the PC lied that he'd had to defend himself from "a vicious attack".
George then showed him video he'd taken after he'd goaded the drunk John Paul, therefore making it look like the teacher was the aggressor in their argument.
John Paul was horrified as George likened him to the abusive husbands he'd visited on emergency calls, claiming he was "terrified" so he'd had to defend himself. Of course, this was a lie.
After George threatened that John Paul's "mood swings" were going to "drive [him] away", John Paul sent the PC a video message declaring his love and calling him a "superhero".
George had John Paul accepting the lies that all of their "issues" were down to him, as well as promising to change for his partner.
"Please forgive me," John Paul begged.
George's final manipulation was telling John Paul they he'd forgive him, but insisted he needed space. John Paul offered to sleep on the couch to make it up to him.
"I'm really lucky, George. I feel lucky that you're sticking by me in spite of everything," John Paul told him. "I feel really grateful. And I promise I'll fix all of this."
George walked away with an evil grin as the chilling episode closed.
