Hollyoaks spoilers follow.
Liberty Savage has once again changed her mind on allowing Sienna and Brody to adopt baby Faith in Hollyoaks.
In the aftermath of her traumatic birthing experience, Liberty (Jessamy Stoddart) has been struggling silently with her mental health — including having visions of Sienna's killer daughter Nico influencing her to keep the baby.
Monday's (October 26) first-look episode took place one day before the car crash we've seen in flash-forward scenes. In the run-up to those scenes, Sienna and Brody were planning to run away with the children after Faith's naming ceremony.
Sienna and Brody encouraged Damon Kinsella (Jacob Roberts) to share his romantic feelings for Liberty, as a way to bring the pair some joy once Sienna and Brody were gone from the village.
Unaware of Brody and Sienna's plans to run away, Damon opened up to Liberty and they agreed to embark on a relationship. But Liberty's mental health struggles flared again when she had a vision of Nico.
"You have a boyfriend now. Wouldn't a baby be a perfect addition?" Nico insisted, warning: "You need to make a decision before it's too late."
Liberty later stunned Damon with the news that she'd decided to keep Faith after all, while Sienna and Brody were making their final plans to escape from Warren after the baby naming ceremony.
"I'm not going ahead with the adoption anymore. I'm keeping Faith… All I'm asking you to do is support me," Liberty insisted to Damon. "I love her too much to let someone else raise her."
