Neem na Twitter, het een aanhanger gesê: “This is all a set up. Harvey’s going to escape from the hospital.”
Another conspired: “I think Damon & Harvey are working together. The plan was to get Harvey in hospital, so he can escape and soon, you will see them meet up and hear Harvey say ‘thanks bro, now down to business’.”
Speaking about his character, Ciarán explained: “He’s definitely got an ulterior motive.
“He makes out that he’s back to make amends with Jacob and he slowly starts to build up his trust, but I think that will be to let him back down again.
“He’s just using Jacob for his own benefit, which you get the impression he’s done for a lot of his life.
“He’s definitely trying to take over Harvey’s patch and do his own thing. He doesn’t want to be in Harvey’s shadow, he’s here for himself.
“It’s all about the opportunity for Damon and how he can get around Nick and Leanne, which is by a bit of blackmail, regtig.
“Harvey has lent this money to Nick for Sam, which he’s invested in the Bistro. But Damon says: ‘Actually, I lent that money to Harvey so it’s my stake in the business’.
“Nick doesn’t want Leanne to know about the deal he did with Harvey, so that’s how Damon has got Nick in his back pocket.
“He blackmails Nick and puts him in a position where he can’t say anything to Leanne so he’s forced to go along with what Damon wants.”
Will Damon be sticking around?
Ciarán answered: “I think he’ll hang onto his stake at the Bistro for as long as he can, but if it gets too hot to handle he’ll vanish in a flash and leave everyone else to pick up the pieces.”
