In tonight's (September 19) first look episode Hunter's family tried to persuade him not to give up on his career as a teacher after student Freya tried to kiss him.


Still on edge after being the victim of a homophobic attack back in July, John Paul was approached by headteacher Carter who offered to help him deal with the aftermath of the attack.

During the conversation, Carter brought up John Paul's former student and rapist, Finn O'Connor, before telling John Paul to let him help.

"If you would meet me later I think I could help you," Carter told John Paul adding that he "won't regret it".

In order to help John Paul, Carter encouraged him to face his demons by returning to the place he was attacked - The Loft.

After seeing John Paul chatting enthusiastically to a man named Billy, Carter approached the stranger telling him to leave John Paul alone - but what is Carter up to?

Following their breakup, Ethan invited Dilly to The Loft where the pair become intimate.
