Seriously who doesn’t love this episode? It’s Brendan at his best - scheming, funny, manipulative, sexy, devilishly charming and a layer of vulnerability underneath it all. Brendan does everything in his power to convince Ste to stay in Hollyoaks including making him seethe with jealousy, convincing him not to leave his kids and setting up Noah for a huge failure. Can’t believe this aired over three years ago.
Hooray! Glad to hear it! But yes, painful - isn’t it? :(
It was totally Emmett’s choice to leave and the producers knew way in advance so they were able to write Brendan a full arc including reuniting him with Ste, bringing Seamus into the equation and bringing Walker back.
This interview gives more detail to when he planned to leave etc. Hope that helps.
The Channel 4 date is 1st November 2013 but I’m afraid I don’t have a link to watch it. Hope that helps.
I’m planning on revamping the site and making it more user-friendly in the coming weeks. In the meantime I’ve opened a brand new gallery.
It’s a bit of a work in progress (I’m trying to transfer 300+ episodes worth of screencaps which is a bit of a task!) but there’s a lot there already.
I hope this makes things easier to find. As ever screencaps can be used without credit for anything you like.
The old photobuckets will still be available should you wish to use them.
In a reflective way, yes (realistically probably not as much as he should have been but hey-ho) but we don’t know how he’s getting on in prison etc.*
*yeah, I know he’s not real ;)
When a fandom spans a long period and you jump aboard a ship mid-way through or when it’s finished you can sometimes miss little nuggets of behind-the-scenes facts which make the story so much better. And if you’ve been on the ship from the start, clutching your OTP and whispering “my babies” into the night you will hold these snippets of information to your chest with adoration.
So for the new Stendan fans, the veterans, the curious and the virgins I present The Ultimate Guide to Stendan offering as much information on the two and a half year phenomenon. I hope you enjoy.
I have tried to include a ‘source’ where possible, however sometimes you’ll just have to take my word for it. Information comes from my big ol’ memory, articles and interviews, old tweets or from conversations with Emmett.
Part One: Early Beginnings & Secret Sexuality
No, apart from Ste’s line “I reckon Brendan’s looking at a 30 year stretch” there hasn’t been. Hope that helps!
The closest episode I could get to a summer holiday one! Brendan even wears his blue summer shirt! Although like most of Brendan’s life, it’s not the happy summer day it could be. Brendan’s made a promise to join Ste and the kids, with estranged son Declan, to a trip to Disneyworld Florida. But he’s torn between his heart and his fears and can’t go through with it. The scene in the car is such a powerful moment - it always gets to me seeing Brendan’s struggle.
