The Fair City captor was revealed in Tuesday's episode... was it who you expected?
*WARNING* Spoilers ahead
Well, well, welll.
After months of speculation we finally discovered the identity of Katy O'Brien's captor: Ciaran Holloway.
After beating up Tommy Dillon in a bid to get some answers about Katy, Emmet returned home deflated and furious. Ciaran, concerned by his mood, questioned Emmet if he has heard anything more about Katy. Emmet, reeling from what he did to Tommy and not able to handle the conversation, stormed off to get some air.
And that's when Ciaran revealed that he's the captor.
After Emmet left and he was sure he is on his own Ciaran's mood changed and he became amused amused by Emmet's torment, knowing that he had pushed his buttons. He made sure he was alone, opened his bag and took out Katy's scarf.
He then took out a smartphone and a password protected app appeared. On the screen he watched footage of Katy lying alone in her room.
Speaking about the revelation on tonight's episode Johnny Ward, who plays Ciaran, said; "I honestly haven't been able to go anywhere without people asking me where Katy is. Even when I went to Hampden Park in Scotland recently to see Celtic play Rangers, so many Celtic fans were asking me "where is Katy?".
"It really is a storyline that has gripped the viewers. I am truly blessed to be working with such incredible writers, directors and actors and I am honoured to be part of something so special.
"I know people will wonder why Ciaran has done this...but believe me, the guy has his reasons."
