Hollyoaks favourite Darren Osborne's (Ashley Taylor Dawson) life was put in danger during Friday's first-look episode on E4.
Grace Black (Tamara Wall) prepared for the re-launch of her nightclub, The Loft.
Felix Westwood (Richard Blackwood) proudly put up the new sign and things seemed to be going swimmingly.
However, dodgy Fergus Collins (Robert Beck) had other plans and sabotaged the big day.
Knowing that Grace hasn't got insurance, Fergus told Timmy (Sam Tutty) to keep watch as he loosened the bolts to the sign.
Conversations about relationships were rife throughout the village as Luke Morgan (Gary Lucy) tried to help Darren decide whether he wanted to be with old flame Nancy Hayton (Jessica Fox) or fix his relationship with Mandy Richardson (Sarah Jayne Dunn).
Later, Darren made a decision and asked Mandy to meet him at The Loft, but before he got the chance to say what he needed to say, The Loft sign came crashing down leaving him clinging to his life.
Horrified viewers at home have been left wondering if Darren will survive the heartbreaking incident.
Taking to Twitter, one fan penned: "If Darren dies, I’ll never forgive Hollyoaks."
Another added: "No! Not Darren!"
A third person posted: "OMG Darren."
While a fourth social media user said: "Heart is in my mouth watching The Loft sign slowly coming away!"
Hollyoaks spoilers have revealed that Darren is rushed to hospital in upcoming scenes where Mandy and Nancy discover that he’s in a coma, and his condition takes a turn for the worse.
Things become awkward when Mandy is allowed in to visit Darren, as she is technically still his next of kin.
Desperate to do something, Nancy decides to confront The Loft boss Grace.
Mandy later confronts Nancy and demands to know what exactly went on between her and Darren prior to the accident.
However, she has a shocking announcement of her own to make – one which comes as a huge blow to Nancy.
