Hollyoaks favourite Cindy Cunningham (Steph Waring) is left worried about Luke Morgan (Gary Lucy) next week as his health begins to deteriorate.
He refuses to stop in his search for his late mum Sue’s prison pen pal and an anonymous text leads Luke and his son Ollie Morgan (Gabriel Clark) to a perilous situation.
Meanwhile, Luke channels his energy into helping Tony Hutchinson (Nick Pickard) save The Hutch with a day of pizza-making but the plan collapses when Tony realises that he’s underselling them.
Whilst talking to Walter Deveraux (Trevor A. Toussaint) , Luke gets the idea to help Tony by staging a robbery for The Hutch’s insurance money and Tony reluctantly agrees, but will it be a success?
Elsewhere, Zara Morgan (Kelly Condron) announces that her aunt Lydia (Cathy Shipton ) has come to see Cindy.
Lydia chats to Cindy about Luke’s condition and what she will need to get through it, and the conversation gives her a lot to think about.
When Luke doesn't come home, Cindy and Zara are shocked to discover what’s happened, and, to make matters worse, Lydia tells Cindy that Luke is exhibiting behaviours that her husband had six months before he died.
Later in the week, Luke’s impulsiveness gets out of hand as he plans a "world tour" honeymoon for after the wedding, so Zara asks Cindy to talk to a specialist about her brother.
Elsewhere in the village, A guilt-ridden Cleo McQueen (Nadine Mulkerrin) agrees to take Walter to his dialysis appointment.
She worries that she won’t be able to act normal around him since she knows the identity of his attacker, but will she tell him the truth?
With nothing but a guilty conscience, Cleo talks to Joel Dexter (Rory Douglas-Speed) about coming clean about Walter’s attacker, but he manages to convince her that silence is the best option, and since he’s the only one that knows the truth, he offers to be her shoulder to lean on.
Making his feelings for Cleo obvious, Joel tries to make her question the stability of her relationship with secret killer Toby Faroe (Bobby Gordon).
To prove a point, Cleo says that she’ll tell Toby about her kiss with Joel, but she changes her mind at the last minute.

When Joel overhears, he assumes that Cleo has exposed their kiss so apologises to Toby, who is furious to find out that this kiss is another secret that Cleo’s keeping.
Also, A love-lorn Shaq Qureshi (Omar Malik) bonds with Verity Hutchnson (Eva O'Hara) over a cartoon they both loved when they were younger, until Sami Maalik (Rishi Nair) interrupts them.
Theresa McQueen (Jorgie Porter) admits she wants to take things to the next step, but Shaq is both distracted and uninterested.
Shaq avoids calls from Theresa because she’s mad at him for not wanting to be more serious.
When they finally bump into each other, Theresa asks him to make them exclusive or to leave her alone.
Back at the house, Shaq confides in Verity about his problems with Theresa and, in the process, admits that he lied about not being in love with her.
There’s tension between Verity and Shaq as they almost kiss in the moment.
Theresa needs some consoling after Shaq calls things off between them again, claiming there is another woman, so she joins Celeste Faroe (Andrea Ali) and Verity for their girls’ night, along with Cleo.
It's not long before Theresa suspects Verity might be the mystery girl.
Meanwhile, Shaq worries when he gets a text from Sami implying that he knows what’s up with him.
Later, a shock confession rocks the Maalik family.
Later, when Marnie Nightingale (Lysette Anthony) lets Juliet (Niamh Blackshaw) do extra work in the café for her CV, she ends up falling on the mopped floor.
Misbah Malik runs (Harvey Viridi) to her aide but a mystery man interrupts with his own medical opinion.
Marnie connect the dots and Misbah admits that the man is Shaq’s dad, Ali.
At the hospital, Misbah is too shaken up by the family reunion and leaves Cleo in charge of Marnie’s care, but with Marnie in agony, will Cleo administer painkillers without supervision?
