Episode Summary

Monday 19th January 2009
Darren is released from prison and as he arrives back in Hollyoaks, he seems an altogether different man, humbled by his experience. He makes his way to Steph's flat where Steph heads out and Cindy makes it her mission to get Darren back to his old self. Steph returns to find Darren risen from the ashes, reborn as his former, pimped and blinged up self. Darren vows to get the pub back so he and Cindy head to the SU Bar to celebrate his triumphant return. The festivities are cut short when Malachy spots Darren enjoying himself at the bar with Cindy and he sees red. Mercedes begs him to leave it but Malachy warns Darren off as sternly as possible. Darren is brought back to earth as he heads home to have his electronic tag fitted and the reality of his situation dawns upon him. After a long day, Darren and Cindy finally get to be alone but just as they are about to get a little more comfortable, Newt returns home. Spotting his chance for revenge for Darren's earlier comments about his libido, Newt plonks himself in between the couple. Cindy's frustrated but Darren doesn't mind- at least he's home. Warren is struggling to accommodate Spencer, so he gives him some money and tells him to sort himself out for the day. Calvin finds Spencer in the village, alone and eating an array of junk food. Calvin tries to explain that Warren's having a hard time of it since Louise left and in response Spencer lets slip that Warren had told him that Louise would never be coming back to Hollyoaks. Calvin wonders how Warren would know this if he hadn't spoken to Louise. Calvin confronts Warren about this and Warren, uncomfortable as ever talking about Louise, manages to pass off his guilt as depression. With the guilt of Louise's death fresh in his mind, Spencer is becoming too much of a burden for Warren to bear even if they are foster brothers. However, when Warren comes back to the flat to find that Spencer has cut himself whilst attempting to cook, he realises the degree to which Spencer needs him and promises to be more patient in future. Mercedes and Malachy, love's young dream, have taken over the student flat and are already getting on Elliot's nerves. Matters are made worse when Mercedes breaks Elliot's model of the Millennium Falcon, which he had been planning on using for a presentation. The housing officer pays an unexpected visit to the flat and tells Mercedes and Malachy that they've got a week to get out. It appears obvious that Elliot is responsible for grassing them up but Elliot maintains that he did no such thing. Indignant, the couple gather their belongings and move out of the flat. In spite of their eviction, Mercedes' and Malachy's spirits are high and even their encounter with Darren doesn't dampen their good mood. They find a B&B to stay in and it seems no matter what gets thrown at them, they'll survive. Back at the student flat, Kris absentmindedly gives away that it was him who grassed up his brother but it was for his own good.moreless
