Drugs boss Victor Brothers has ordered Ollie Morgan to kill Ste Hay in Hollyoaks.
The shocking demand came about after Ollie failed to carry through on Victor's orders to sell off a new supply of ketamine earlier in the week.
Tuesday's (March 16) first-look episode opened up with Ollie (Gabriel Clark) panicking over his relapse, as he'd used the drugs Victor (Benjamin O'Mahony) had ordered him to sell in 24 hours.
"I'm a dead man," he told Ste (Kieron Richardson). "We were going to bring him down. This was all going to be over!"
Ste convinced Ollie that he'd find some way to sort Victor, but the drugs boss struck terror into Ollie's heart when he later cornered him in the alley.
"Do you think this a library?" Victor screamed. "What, you just pay a late fee and I just forget all about it? I got to be honest, I almost feel sorry for you. But then again, I've dug holes in my personal graveyard for a lot less than this."
Victor went to reach for his weapon, but James Nightingale (Gregory Finnegan) happened to be walking by and warned he'd call the police. The dealer backed off, but insisted he'd "pick this up at another time".
Ste managed to get Ollie back to the Lomaxes, before meeting with James to confide with him about their plan to bring down Victor.
Victor interrupted their meeting to make it clear that his own bosses wouldn't stand for Ste and James's meddling in his business. He later placed a call to a terrified Ollie with an offer on how he could make things right.
The drugs kingpin explained that he wanted Ollie to take care of Ste Hay so he would no longer interfere with his operation. When Ollie offered to talk with Ste, Victor had other ideas in mind.
"You don't reason with vermin, Oliver," Victor insisted. "You make a call. You get someone to take care of them. You want to save your own life? Kill Ste."
What will Ollie do?
