As reported at the weekend, Silas (Jeff Rawle) will soon step up his torment of Lynsey Nolan (Karen Hassan) as he sets her a sick challenge, ordering her to guess who he's planning to murder next. Silas promises that he'll hand himself in if Lynsey figures it out, but if she fails, another girl will die.
As seen in our pictures below, Silas picks out Texas Longford (Bianca Hendrickse-Spendlove), Theresa McQueen (Jorgie Porter), Amy Barnes (Ashley Slanina-Davies) and Lynsey herself as potential victims, marking each one with chess pieces which end up being planted in their homes or bags.
Lynsey is horrified when she finds a chess queen as she realises its significance, but the other girls will no doubt be blissfully unaware of what is happening.

Silas vows to commit his latest murderous act at midnight on Halloween unless Lynsey beats the odds and wins his evil game.
Events take a further twist when Silas sends Lynsey a Catwoman outfit with a strict instruction to wear it to the fancy dress Halloween party at Chez Chez.

With Doug (PJ Brennan) now acting as her confidante in the terrible situation, can Lynsey beat Silas at his own game? Or is another villager about to meet the same gruesome fate as India, Bex and Rae?
