spoilers for Hollyoaks Consequences.
Hollyoaks has revealed how Eric Foster got caught up in the show’s dramatic plot.
Hollyoaks pushes his misogyny storyline as Maxine is currently recovering from an attack after a night of getting Mitzee vaccinated. In this episode, Verity confronts Maxine about her plan to lure alcoholics into Grace’s bar, but Maxine defends herself.
“What should I do Verity? Just stay indoors forever? I can not do anything. My sister was stabbed, I was attacked. It’s not safe for you, for me, for any of us,” says Maxine.

Verity warns her that she will try to stop them, but Maxine says there’s nothing she can do – she’s clearly made up her mind. Meanwhile, Spiker Eric receives a text message from Men First asking if he attended the party at the club later that night. He overhears Grace worrying about the lack of staff she has on the shift that night, while also mentioning CCTV footage.
Eric, concerned that the CCTV footage will incriminate him, asks her to give him a trial shift: “If that Spiker’s still out there, you’re going to need all the eyes you can get.” Grace reluctantly agrees. Later, Eric works the shift, eyeing the club’s security cameras.
He writes to the Men First group: “Slagxine has no idea what lies ahead. I’m in the perfect position, no camera errors and no mistakes tonight.”

Maxine pretends to be drunk at the club and asks Beau to buy her a round of drinks, which he does. Off-screen it is implied that Eric spiked one of the drinks. Maxine then tests the drink with a drug detection strip and it comes out positive. She accuses Beau of being the spiker while Eric keeps grinning.
“My drink just tested positive for drugs. The drink you gave me after I saw you put something in your bag,” says Maxine.
Beau denies everything and reveals that it was his bank card that he put in his pocket. Maxine demands to see the club’s CCTV immediately, and Eric says he’ll “set up the footage for her” that second. The footage is inconclusive, however, and Zoe says there’s no evidence Beau peed anyone. Eric pretends to be innocent.

“Maxine, I know this must be devastating. But the person who pissed you off knew exactly what he was doing,” says Eric, before Zoe realizes that Eric has a tattoo that he’s hiding. Eric later brags online about spiked the drink.
But Maxine ponders the night at home and looks over the wanted poster, which shows a blurred image of an arm with a tattoo on it. Eric promises to make Maxine’s life “hell,” but Maxine finds a picture of Eric with the tattoo on his arm. She eventually finds out that Eric is the Spiker and the revealing episode ends.
