Todd's schemes are unravelling and he could lose Billy
And with Billy splitting from Paul and Todd in quick succession as well as resigning from his job, could we be about to say goodbye to him for good?
With his shocking actions set to be revealed to Billy at some point, Todd actor Gareth has teased the fallout and whether comeuppance will come knocking.
Speaking to The Mirror and other press, he teased the big scenes ahead and said: "I think it might make him re-examine himself.
"I think there’s a sense that he’s not enjoying and isn’t in control of the game anymore.

"I think when you step back from what he’s done, he hasn’t gone into the territory of murder or anything as heavy as that, but it’s almost like a criminal wanting to be found out. It’ll be awful but there will be freedom after everything comes out."
He added: "I don’t think we will see Todd’s moral compass completely reset. He’s always going to be a player.
"I hope we’ve done the scripts justice in terms of what we’ve brought to the screen."
Gareth continued: "Keep watching, it’s lovely we already have people conflicted. Dan and I have been saying, we’ve been doing this all from two metres, there’s only so much eyebrow tension you can give!
"I think it's lovely to see the audience have gone on the journey, so the payoff is greater."
