Patrick Blake’s dramatic exit scenes will air tonight on E4’s first-look episode at 7pm where we can expect twists, but more importantly, we’ll see if devious Patrick’s plan to frame Maxine for his murder will pay off.
Viewers have seen Patrick Blake’s health deteriorate in the past months as he battles motor neurone disease. The former head teacher has asked Maxine to help him end his life before the illness takes it – but only to punish her for the final time by framing her for his murder.
Convincing her that he wants to die with dignity, Maxine has blindly agreed to help him carry out his final wish – unaware that he’s left evidence and voice recordings which will frame her for his murder after he dies.
After Maxine and Patrick renew their vows, Maxine gets cold feet about her promise to help with his suicide. With Patrick’s plan now out the window, will he talk her around or is someone else’s fait hanging in the balance?
Tune into Hollyoaks tonight at 7pm on E4 or catch this episode tomorrow night at 6:30pm on Channel 4.
