SERIAL killer Breda McQueen was finally murdered in last night’s episode of Hollyoaks Later – with her own son Sylver the one to bump her off.
Viewers were horrified when the evil character was stabbed in the head with a pair of knitting needles, bringing her reign of terror to an end.
After Breda framed Mercedes McQueen for the murder of several villagers, Sylver managed the fatal attack as she attempted to kill him, Mercedes, and Tony Hutchinson.
Sylver and his sister Goldie vowed to stop their mother after learning her dark secrets – and were left horrified when she turned on her own son.
She then set fire to the place in a bid to finish the job, with Goldie and Mercedes able to get lifeless Tony – who Breda had been holding hostage in the pig farm – out just before the fire would have killed him.
Mercedes then ran back into the burning building to rescue ex-husband Sylver, but Breda stabbed her with shards of glass – thankfully, Sylver managing to lunge at his mum with the needles to save her.
Gory scenes saw Breda with the two sticks coming out of her head, with blood seeping from her eyes as she died.
Sylver collapsed to the floor after apologising for what he had done, clearly riddled with guilt by the attack.
Thankfully, the surviving women managed to drag him outside just before the home exploded.
A teaser for tonight’s episode of the soap has revealed that while Tony managed to escape Breda by the skin of his teeth, his troubles are far from over – with evil dad Edward unhappy with his son’s shock return to the village.
Fans are aware that Tony had just professed his love to Tony’s wife Diane, who he has been enjoying an illicit affair with.
Hollyoaks continues tonight at 7pm on E4.
