Hollyoaks spoilers follow.
Cher Winters has fully embraced her dark side in order to get revenge on Mercedes McQueen in Hollyoaks.
The teen has been stewing over Mercedes (Jennifer Metcalfe) ruining her recent birthday party by pulling Sylver (David Tag) away after getting drunk.
Her cruel intentions were unveiled only at the end of an emotional first-look episode on Tuesday (February 16), since Sylver already suspected Mercy wasn't being truthful with him.
Although she was actually feeling angst about wanting another child, Sylver thought his wife might have fallen back into her old bad habits.
Mercedes did look back on her addictions in an honest chat with Ollie Morgan when she caught him stealing tips from The Dog and it reminded her of how desperate she'd been during her own past.
In their heart-to-heart, Mercy even admitted to Ollie that she'll always feel tempted by drugs, but urged the teen to turn to his family and friends for help in getting sober.
"You're a good kid, I can see that," she assured him.
Later, Mercedes was stunned when Sylver found cocaine in her purse and immediately assumed that she was back on drugs.
While Cher watched in the wings, Mercedes denied doing drugs but explained that she'd got drunk the night before because she'd got her period — meaning she couldn't be pregnant.
The couple were able to patch things up, with Sylver promising that he was back on board with trying to have a child together.
Cher could only angrily watch them, with a flashback revealing that she'd actually approached Ollie to buy the coke and then planted it in Mercedes's handbag.
How far will Cher go for revenge?
