HOLLYOAKS fans were tonight united in hate for scheming surgeon Edward Hutchinson – after he switched son Tony's medication for dangerous drugs.
Letting himself in to retrieve his belongings, Joe McCann's twisted character headed straight for the bathroom, leaving the bottle of pills for him to take.
Meanwhile, the monster – who left Tony furious after having an affair with Diane – slipped the identical-looking bottle back into his bag.
Viewers saw him swiping the medication from Peri earlier in the episode after she almost gave them to a patient who didn't leave him.
But Hollyoaks die-hards quickly clocked what he was up to, tweeting: "Can someone kill Edward please?"
Another asked: "What did Tony ever do his dad to warrant this behaviour????????"
A third sighed: "Just when i thought Edward couldn’t stoop any lower."
One other summed up the situation nearly, writing simply: "Edward ya b*****d."
Edward had pleaded with Diane for her help convincing Tony to allow him back in his life, but his efforts came to nothing.
