Hollyoaks spoilers follow.
Mercedes McQueen has discovered that Theresa is the family mole in Hollyoaks.
Theresa (Jorgie Porter) has been working with Seth Costello (Miles Higson) to inform on her family, though she has no idea Seth is using her as part of his grandfather Silas's (Jeff Rawle) vendetta.
In Monday's (January 4) first-look episode, Mercedes told Sylver (David Tag) that she'd come up with a plan to "out the traitor in this family" once and for all.
Against Sylver's wishes, Mercedes decided to tell various family members that she's been having an affair with different people in the village — revealing to Theresa that she'd had a fling with Luke Morgan.
Soon after, Seth piled on the pressure for Theresa to find more family secrets, and once she'd shared what Mercy had told her, it wasn't long before the creepy doll made another blackmail threat.
Furious Mercy and Sylver stormed over to the car park, where they branded Theresa a "liar" for working against the family — but were stunned when Seth leapt out of the shadows and ordered them not to hurt her.
Theresa was completely in the dark about Silas's involvement after Seth admitted he was working for his grandfather, though he did show some remorse.
"You are both so stupid," Mercedes insisted. "You've been conned, Theresa. Silas is the most evil man on this planet and you've been helping him to destroy our family."
Monday's episode concluded with Theresa stunned to discover her part in Silas's evil plan!
