Hollyoaks spoilers: Rhiannon Clements reveals aftermath of Sienna Blake shooting
Summer has been struggling to cope in the wake of the discovery that Brody Hudson (Adam Woodward) was involved in Cormac’s (James Gaddas) hospitalisation.
Tonight’s edition of the Channel 4 soap saw the young woman confront her beau, but she was later left in shock when she learned that her dad had abused Felix Westwood (Richard Blackwood).
With emotions running high following news of her dad’s passing, Summer was distraught, but seeing Brody in Sienna’s company sent her over the edge, and therefore she saw red.
After acquiring Grace Black’s (Tamara Wall) gun, Summer pointed the firearm and pulled the trigger, and thus Sienna fell to the pavement — having been on the receiving end of the bullet.
The question is: was Sienna actually the intended target?
‘No, I don’t think [Summer] was going for Sienna,’ actress Rhiannon Clements told Metro.co.uk, ‘It’s just a case of wrong time, wrong place. But what I think is really interesting about this whole storyline is that we start to see Summer a little bit out of control.
‘All these feelings that she has come out in some form of attack, so she wasn’t necessarily aiming for Sienna, but that doesn’t mean that the repercussions aren’t going to work in her favour.’
Summer was certainly overwhelmed after she pulled the trigger, but will she ultimately regret what she’s done?
‘Summer regrets the extent things have gone to,’ Rhiannon continued. ‘But I think once those floodgates are opened, she throws caution to the wind, and is like: “Well, it’s started now, so let’s unleash the hounds!”
‘She’s been suppressing so much for so long, in terms of what’s going on with her dad, in terms of relationships, and sitting on her own stuff that allows her the capabilities to get to where she is at now, so I think she’s a bit: “Ah, what do I do know, and how do I make this situation work for me and how can I manipulate it even further?’
