Hollyoaks spoilers follow.
Newcomer Nate Denby has a sinister secret in Hollyoaks.
The fresh arrival has shown up in Chester as a flatmate for Grace Black, and while he appears to be a charming gentleman on the surface, there have been flashes that he has a dark side.
Viewers have already seen that he's keeping pictures of every Hollyoaks resident's social media presence, with a particular interest in Felix Westwood and the Deveraux family.
In Friday's (September 10) E4 first-look episode, Nate started gathering intel on other members of the community in a mysterious blue folder.
First, he had some questions for Maxine, but he ultimately came face to face with Martine and Felix when he saw his roommate Grace confronting them in the street.
Grace enlisted Nate to take her home, and he tried to convince her to open up about all of her recent romantic troubles with Felix.
"I'm happy to listen, I'm a stranger. I wouldn't know the difference," Nate assured her. "If you need to vent, vent."
During their talk, Grace found Nate's mysterious blue folder hidden behind the couch. She teased opening it to lure Nate up to the bedroom with her.
However, in the night's post-credits scene, Nate was shown creeping back downstairs with the blue folder in hand and tucking it away secretly in his bag. What is he up to?
Digital Spy recently spoke with Chris Charles about how Nate's secret is going to play out in upcoming episodes — and how there is already a "road map" for his "end goal and the endgame".
Hollyoaks airs new episodes from Mondays to Fridays at 6.30pm on Channel 4, with first-look screenings at 7pm on E4. Selected omnibus episodes are available via Amazon Prime Video.
