In a heartwarming turn, Hunter connects with Freya over art and opens up about his own past. When he offers to draw Freya’s late mother Lexi (who was killed by Silas Blissett last year when he made another attempt to get Mercedes), John Paul becomes concerned about their closeness.
Seeking guidance, Hunter confides in Zoe about Lexi, leading to an unforeseen bond between the two.
However, Sally cautions Hunter about his burgeoning friendship with Freya during her time of grief. Tensions rise as emotions run high in Hollyoaks.
Hollyoaks continues weeknights on Channel 4 at 6.30pm
