Warren, Brody and Felix have had their revenge on abuser Cormac in harrowing Hollyoaks scenes.
This week's episodes have seen Warren (Jamie Lomas) and Felix (Richard Blackwood) trying to get on the same page while opening a business together.
In Thursday's (October 8) first-look episode, Felix explained that the way Warren could make things right was to bring his former bully Cormac (James Gaddas) back to the village for a confrontation.
Though Warren was worried Felix wouldn't be able to control himself, Cormac was eventually called to the village. But, Brody (Adam Woodward) actually intercepted the abuser.
Remembering his own abuse at the hands of Buster, Brody brought Cormac over the garage so that Felix could have the closure he needed.
Instead, an explosive chain reaction ignited as Cormac unleashed a verbal tirade on Felix – leading Brody to nearly knock him out with a punch.
Brody explained to a clueless Cormac that he'd been abused by someone in authority too, with Cormac sneering over the revelation.
Cormac's flippance set off Warren to tackle his former mentor into the garage. When Cormac insisted he should have been harsher back in the day, Warren saw red.
The first-look episode closed with Brody and Felix watching in shock as Warren started viciously kicking and punching Cormac.
The soaps's recent 25th anniversary trailer hinted that Warren might kill Cormac in the scuffle, forcing the trio to cover up the murder. But viewers will have to tune in next week to find out exactly what happens!
