He could kill Jacqui, due to the situation that she puts him in."[22] She added that "Trevor is definitely dangerous" and had his scenes with Jacqui aired in the spin-off series Hollyoaks Later, the scenes would have been more "brutal". But due to the 6.30pm timeslot Hollyoaks airs in, they were structured different. But Cooper felt the scenes were scary for some viewers.[22]

In September 2015, Laura-Jayne Tyler of Inside Soap praised the car crash which killed Dylan and Wood's acting following it, "The Hollyoaks car crash was a thrilling ride - but the most touching part was when Trevor picked out a burial frock for his dead son Dylan. Sob!"[23]

After Jacqui rips him off he comes to find her at Trudy's office where she is taking Trudy's money. He attempts to kill her but is knocked unconscious by Tony Hutchinson (Nick Pickard).

When Sonny Valentine (Aaron Fountaine) shows Grace evidence of an emergency call from Fraser made to the police the night he died, she then retracts her statement and Trevor gets sent down for his murder.

Trevor is released from prison after new developments in Fraser's murder case which proves that he was innocent and framed for the murder.

Daniel "Danny" Lomax, played by Stephen Billington, made his first screen appearance on 8 July 2013.[44] Daniel Kilkelly from Digital Spy first mentioned the character in June 2013. He revealed that Danny arrives to teach at Hollyoaks High and becomes a love interest for John Paul McQueen (James Sutton). He added that there are "skeletons in Danny's closet, which could turn the worlds of a number of Hollyoaks residents upside down".[45] Executive producer Bryan Kirkwood added that Danny and John Paul's romance "will lead to dark and unexpected consequences for a number of characters.".[46] On 1 July, Kilkelly announced that Billington had been cast to play Danny and would debut the following week. In August 2014, Danny alongside with his wife Sam departed the soap as they were killed in a horrific car accident while they were departing for New Zealand.[47]

A writer from the Hollyoaks website described Danny as "charismatic, charming, pretty-sweeting-captivating". He is also a "thoughtful, intelligent, articulate and well respected member of the teaching profession".[48] Danny is liked by his students because of his youthful approach to life. He also has a "cheeky twinkle in his eyes" which charm everyone. Billington told the writer that can relate to Danny because he also teaches and gets along with young people. But he warned that Danny has a different side to his personality. Viewers will not discover this until later on because it will be revealed over time. Billington added that "you'll still like him, but he’s much more complex than he first appears."[48]

In an unpublicised storyline twist, Danny is revealed to be Ste Hay's (Kieron Richardson) biological father. Billington told Kilkelly that he was "absolutely thrilled" with his storyline and that he was always aware of the development.[49] He explained that Danny had attempted to make contact on many occasions but Ste's mother, Pauline Hay (Jane Hogarth) prevented it. Billington also warned that Danny had more secrets yet to be disclosed and was confident that Danny would be able to charm the audience with his persona. The actor added that Danny is "definitely not a bad person. He's just a bit of a free spirit and he likes getting his own way. Perhaps he's a bit greedy too, but when it comes down to it, he's a fundamentally good guy."[49] The following episode another secret about the character was revealed as viewers were introduced to Danny's wife Sam Lomax (Lizzie Roper). Kilkelly reported Sam would be a prominent character as Danny "desperately" attempts to maintain family life and his affair with John Paul.[50] In September 2013, the show announced the arrival of Danny and Sam's three children Leela (Kirsty-Leigh Porter), Peri (Ruby O'Donnell) and Tegan Lomax (Jessica Ellis).[51]

Danny arrives as a drama supply teacher at Hollyoaks High to organise a production with John Paul. He becomes attracted to Danny and asks him about his sexual preference. He remains secretive and later kisses John Paul. They begin working with Tilly Evans (Lucy Dixon) and Esther Bloom (Jazmine Franks). He goes on a date with John Paul but when he is offered a permanent position at the college, he tells John Paul nothing more can happen between them. Danny changes his mind and arranges a date with John Paul and they sleep together. But once the school holidays begin Danny ignores John Paul's calls. He soon returns to take up his permanent teaching post and successfully pleads for another chance with John Paul. Danny becomes worried when headteacher Patrick Blake (Jeremy Sheffield) mentions that he has acquired job references, he warns Danny not to involve his personal life with his professional role. Tony Hutchinson (Nick Pickard) decides to contact Ste's biological father and he is revealed to be Danny. When John Paul forgets about their date, Danny retaliates by flirting with Ste. They get drunk and go back to Ste's flat. Danny runs off when he finds the birthday card he sent to Ste and Pauline's photograph. John Paul presumes that Danny has slept with Ste and attacks him. Danny denies this and tells John Paul he has a son but does not name Ste. Danny has sex with John Paul before going to meet up with his secret wife Sam. He continues to see John Paul and deceive Sam. His student Robbie Roscoe (Charlie Wernham) discovers their affair and threatens to tell Sam if he does not prevent his expulsion from the college. Doug Carter later figures out that Danny is Ste's dad. Doug confronts Danny and Danny admits to being Ste's dad. At Ste's and Doug's leaving party, a bomb goes off killing Doug. Danny later finds Ste at the deli with a bottle of vodka and pills. Danny tries to stop Ste from committing suicide and Ste tells Danny that he doesn't even know him and that he is nothing to him. Danny then tells Ste that he means everything to him because he is his son.

In 2014, Peri sees Danny kissing John Paul on a camera she had set up. In the following weeks, she is diagnosed with a brain tumour and, when she confronts Danny about his affair with John Paul, he convinces her that it didn't happen and her brain tumour is causing her to think that it did. Sam finds out about this but only tells Danny weeks later to keep their family together. Sam forgives Danny, as he promises never to stray again. Soon after, on the laptop, Sam discovers that Danny has an account on a gay dating website and is talking to somebody online and planning to meet them. She confronts him angrily, but then begins to believe that Sienna Blake (Anna Passey) did it. Sienna tells them it was Peri, but soon after, tells Peri that it was Sam and Danny who believed it was her. Sam later tells Danny she cannot forgive him and ends their relationship. Danny then discovers that the man he was talking to online was in fact George Smith (Steven Roberts). He visits him and they kiss.

Of Danny's arrival, a writer from Fabulous magazine said that "there's never a dull moment in Hollyoaks" and quipped that Danny wanted to get involved with John Paul "in more ways than one".[52]

Davis revealed that Richie blackmails Sinead into turning Ste in or he will arrest her for robbery.[53]

Fraser Black, played by Jesse Birdsall, made his first on-screen appearance on 8 August 2013.[56] Daniel Kilkelly announced the character and Birdsall's casting on 31 July 2013. The writer revealed that he would be introduced as a love interest for Sandy Roscoe (Gillian Taylforth).

Fraser approaches the Roscoe family with the offer of business to service his fleet of cars. He begins dating Sandy following an intervention from her children. Fraser meets Sandy for a drink, but Dodger also competes for her attention. Fraser tells Sandy that he would like a serious relationship and warns her to choose between himself and Dodger. Fraser tells Dodger to stay away from Sandy or Fraser will kill him.

It becomes clear that Fraser is a serial criminal and works alongside Trevor Royle (Greg Wood). He attempts to kill Joe and hides the fact he is in a hospital, when everyone believes he has fled the area and abandoned everybody. He also kills Jim McGinn (Dan Tetsell). Joe escapes from the hospital, with the help of Trevor, which Fraser isn't aware of. He is quickly brought back into hospital, where his brother Freddie Roscoe (Charlie Clapham) and Lindsey (Sophie Austin) notice him being brought in. They inform the family and Robbie finds Fraser's book, proving that Fraser had planned to kill Joe. Fraser then frames his own daughter Grace (Tamara Wall) for the attempted murder, for which she gets bail. Fraser also attempts to frame Ste Hay (Kieron Richardson) for crashing into Sinead's (Stephanie Davis) car and fleeing the scene, with a policeman's body in the boot. Ste, under pressure from Fraser, continually agrees that it was himself who did it.

In April 2014, Grace decides she wants to murder her father. Joe and Trevor help to plan how to kill him, setting up a tracking device on his phone. Sonny Valentine (Aaron Fontaine) and Sam Lomax (Lizzie Roper), who are in the police force, are adamant that Fraser committed both crimes. After planning to leave the area with his daughter Rose (by tricking Rose's mother Tegan that he wants to take her as well), Fraser is shot dead in the seat of his car and is found by a distraught Tegan. It is later revealed that Freddie is Fraser's killer.

The character and casting was announced on 19 August, shortly after she made an appearance in E4's first look broadcast.[50] Producers did not reveal Roper's casting beforehand as they wanted her character to be a surprise for viewers. Sam is the wife of Hollyoaks High teacher Danny Lomax (Stephen Billington).[50] Roper stated "I'm so lucky getting to play Sam: one moment she's fun and feisty starting food fights, the next she's facing up to gangsters and doing everything she can to bring them to justice. She's not afraid of anything and has got a heart of gold, but when it comes to her family she's a lioness - don't mess with her!"[50] Daniel Kilkelly from Digital Spy reported that Sam will become a prominent character on-screen as Danny's storyline continues and their daughters arrive.[50] In September 2013, the show announced the arrival of Sam and Danny's three children Leela, Tegan, Peri Lomax played by Kirsty-Leigh Porter, Jessica Ellis and Ruby O'Donnell respectively.[51]

Sam suspects something is wrong and later ends up bringing the two women in, alongside Lindsey Butterfield (Sophie Austin) for the murder of Doctor Browning (Joseph Thompson) and once she finds out they killed him, she lets them go and vows not to tell anybody about what happened. Sam then discovers John Paul has been raped and takes him to the hospital to be examined, and provides support for him. However, she gets him put into prison once she discovers him and Danny were having an affair for the assault of his rapist Finn O'Connor (Keith Rice). Sam discovers that Leela's boyfriend Cameron Campbell (Cameron Moore) has been released from prison and he kidnaps her, but she escapes after revealing she got him locked up. She and Danny plan to leave the village with their family to escape from Cameron, but Leela reveals she and Cameron are Peri's parents to her, so Sam and Danny attempt to flee the village on their own, leaving their children behind. Tegan and Peri later sneak away and contact Sam and Danny, begging them to come and pick them up, but before they can, an unknown car smashes into theirs, killing Sam and Danny. The family learn of this, and the unknown driver is revealed to be Cameron later on.

It is later revealed that she was drunk when she delivered them and so she accidentally swapped Rose and Dee Dee. Following this reveal she blackmails Dr. Charles S'avage (Andrew Greenough) so she can get off the hook. Dr. S'avage has her sectioned as a result. Whilst sectioned she meets Sienna Blake (Anna Passey) and reveals that she had accidentally swapped the babies, Sienna then gets Mariam drunk in a hope to learn Dr. S'avage's secret so she can leave the ward. When Mariam is discharged from the ward she asks Dr. S'avage for her old job back. When she sees Sienna embrace Dr. S'avage, she reveals to Sienna that he didn't pass his medical examinations and therefore isn't a real doctor. Mariam discovered evidence that possibly proved Dr. S'avage was the Gloved Hand Killer. When printing out the copies of the murdered victims, the killer enters the office, sneaks up on her, and fatally injects her with a large dose of potassium chloride, killing her instantly.

Tegan Lomax, played by Jessica Ellis, made her first appearance on 23 October 2013.[64] The character and casting was announced on 17 September 2013.[51] Tegan is a member of the Lomax family, which consists of parents Danny (Stephen Billington) and Sam (Lizzie Roper) and siblings Peri (Ruby O'Donnell) and Leela (Kirsty-Leigh Porter).[51] In "a shocking twist", Tegan gave birth to a daughter within hours of arriving on-screen, having been unaware that she was pregnant.[51] Describing Tegan, a writer for the show's official website stated "She's exciting, warm and full of cracking one-liners. She always sees the best in people – a quality which we ruddy admire!"[65] When Tegan was younger, she had Leukaemia.

When Tegan first arrives, she starts to experience pains and goes to hospital where it's revealed that she is in labour. She then gives birth to daughter, Rose. When Fraser Black (Jesse Birdsall) arrives, it revealed that he is Rose's father. Just before Fraser was killed, he tricked Tegan into thinking he wanted to leave with her but in reality he was going to kidnap Rose and leave with her. Tegan is later questioned but released without charge.

Tegan then runs for student secretary with her opponent being Blessing Chambers (Modupe Adeyeye). When Diane O'Connor (Alex Fletcher) reveals that Blessing is transgender, Tegan stands up for her. Tegan later agrees to move to New Zealand with her parents and Peri, but is devastated to learn that Peri isn't her sister and that Sam and Danny were killed in a car crash.

In September 2014 when Leela's boyfriend, Ziggy, is arrested on suspicion of her parents' deaths, Tegan reveals that he was with her and Peri at the time of the crash, letting her take Peri to New Zealand despite Leela not wanting that to happen. During the hospital siege, Tegan and Ziggy become trapped in the lift and have sex. Tegan later becomes pregnant; which Cameron reveals to Leela so she dumps Ziggy and refuses to forgive Tegan. Tegan then tells Ziggy that instead of being pregnant, the test showed that she has cancer. Ziggy then starts to support her through her treatment.

Tegan later helps Ste through his drug addiction and, along with Leela, uses the money from their parents' insurance to pay for his rehab. Cameron later discovers Tegan's cancer and encourages her to tell Leela. She eventually does and the sisters make up. In December, Rose becomes sick so Tegan donates blood for a transfusion. However, this makes her sicker, revealing that Rose isn't Tegan's biological child. They soon discover that Diane and Tony's daughter, Dee Dee, is. Tegan keeps this to herself and Celine agrees to keep quiet. In January 2015, Tegan, Ziggy and Rose go to her aunt's cabin along with Peri. Ziggy and Tegan drink soup laced with magic mushrooms and start to have visions. Ziggy then tells Tegan he loves her, but she rejects him as she is still battling her cancer and doesn't want to hurt him. Tegan's cancer gets worse and she needs a bone marrow transplant. Nobody is a match but Tegan refuses to tell the truth about the baby swap despite Celine and Sinead O'Connor's (Stephanie Davis) plans. She eventually cracks and tells Tony and Diane so Tony gives permission for Dee Dee to donate bone marrow and Tegan survives.

In April 2015, Leela and Ziggy plan to get married but Ziggy reveals to Tegan that he loves her, not Leela, and she goes to tell Leela. However, they are sidetracked when they learn that Diane was planning to go for full custody of Rose and Dee Dee and eventually agree to keep the daughters they got. Tegan is devastated to learn that Ziggy and Leela got married. Tony then fakes feelings for Tegan so he and Diane can have access to Rose. Tegan finds out so in order to stop Diane taking Rose, she gets Scott Drinkwell (Ross Adams) to help her run away with Rose. Her scam is discovered by Ziggy who calls the police, and Tegan is arrested. Tegan is later charged with perverting the course of justice. During her trial, Leela discovers that she and Ziggy were planning to run away with Rose so she gives Rose to Diane and Tony and walks out of court. At the same time, Tegan is sentenced to four weeks in prison. Ziggy visits Tegan in prison and she vows to get revenge on him for getting her arrested and on Leela for giving her baby away. When Tegan returns, Diane warns her to stay away so Tegan tells Diane that Scott helped her kidnap Rose. This results in a physical fight between Diane and Tegan. Tegan and Diane attempt to get on, with Tegan giving Diane medicine when she was sick, but their fragile peace is shattered when Diane believed Tegan was poisoning her to get Rose back, unaware Scott was responsible. She bans Tegan from seeing Rose and Tegan despairs when a guilty Scott arranges for her to see Rose and she doesn't recognize her.

Tegan later disowns Leela when she discovers that Leela knew Cameron killed their parents but did nothing about it. Ziggy and Tegan then plan to leave together but Leela says she's pregnant, but Tegan discovers she's lying. Leela begs Tegan to keep quiet as she doesn't want to lose Ziggy. Leela is eventually forced to admit she made it up after being hospitalized after a fire and Ziggy is furious that she made Tegan go along with it. Ziggy tells Tegan that they can't have a future, causing her further despair. Later at Diane and Tony's wedding, Tegan makes a passionate speech about how she loves both Rose and Dee Dee and asks Diane about how can she admire her perfect family when she's ripping Tegan's apart. Tegan then goes to leave knowing she isn't welcome but Diane admits that while she loves Rose, their current situation isn't the way forward. Giving Rose back to Tegan, she asks her if they can both be there for their daughters, Tegan agrees laying to rest a six-month feud with Diane and Tony.

Tegan and Ste then attend court to hear Cameron's sentence for killing their parents. Leela tries to stop them as she's written a victim impact statement that paints Cameron as the good guy. Tegan and Ste ignore her and head to court but are furious that due to the statement, he got off with a two-year driving ban. Tegan then punches Cameron as revenge and verbally attacks Leela accusing her of still being in love with him. She gets angrier still when Ziggy defends her and leaves to go on holiday with Rose, claiming Leela pushed her too far this time. A few weeks later, Tegan comes home with Rose just before Leela's 29th birthday. Tegan forgives Leela for the past and they make up. Tegan claims to have met someone called Raphael while she was on holiday. However, this was a lie and she uses a dating app to hook up with a guy called Seth. Tegan and Seth go on a date, with Ziggy jealously eavesdropping. Ziggy forces Seth to stay away from Tegan, angering her and Ziggy follows Tegan to the hospital and they get stuck in an elevator. The pair then admit their love for each other again and attempt to kiss but Leela almost catches them in the act. During Leela's birthday party the next day, she said she and Ziggy were going to try for a baby. However, Ziggy then says he has had enough of their marriage and admits he loves Tegan in front of Leela, leaving her in shock.

Grace Black (previously Royle), played by Tamara Wall, made her first appearance on 8 November 2013.[70] Wall's character and casting was announced on 24 October 2013. Grace is the sister of Clare Devine (Gemma Bissix) and daughter of Fraser Black (Jesse Birdsall). Daniel Kilkelly from Digital Spy also warned that viewers could expect an "interesting dynamic" between Grace and Fraser's employee Trevor Royle (Greg Wood).[70][71] Describing Grace, Kilkelly was told that "considering her relations, I don't think she's going to be the nicest of characters."[72]

Grace arrives in Hollyoaks to attend the funeral of Clare Devine (Gemma Bissix), her sister. The flowers she ordered for Clare are vandalised by Ste Hay (Kieron Richardson); when her father, Fraser (Jesse Birdsall) launches himself at Ste, she persuades him to calm down. Grace then vows to find Doctor Browning (Joseph Thompson), and becomes suspicious of Lindsey Butterfield (Sophie Austin) and Cindy Cunningham's (Stephanie Waring) behaviour. She realises that they and Mercedes McQueen (Jennifer Metcalfe) were involved with Doctor Browning. However, her attempt to befriend Lindsey to extort the truth fails miserably. Under the guise of room service, Grace is invited into Mercedes' house, and informs Mercedes that she is Clare's sister. Their conversation about Clare quickly escalates into an argument. Mercedes threatens Grace, who backs down and leaves. She agrees to stay in the village, to help Fraser run his illegal businesses and seek revenge for Clare.

Unfortunately for Grace, Fraser's revenge plan is for Trevor to seduce Mercedes and con her out of Browning's insurance money. After a date at the Dog results in Grace throwing a drink in Mercedes' face, Trevor brings Grace back to the Loft. They argue, have sex on Fraser's desk and confess their love for each other. Fraser later discovers this on CCTV and forces Trevor into rejecting her (breaking Grace's heart as they had planned to move to Thailand). After an argument, Mercedes tells Grace that she killed Clare. Grace passes on this information to Fraser, goading him into seeking revenge: he agrees. Using Trevor's phone to pose as him, Grace contacts Mercedes and tells her to come to the Loft. Grace uses a standing lamp to attack the next visitor, but rather than Mercedes, it's Tegan Lomax (Jessica Ellis) - the mother of her secret half-sister. In January 2014, Grace's hatred for Mercedes starts to grow more, and she contemplates murdering her. Instead, she uses her stepbrother Freddie Roscoe (Charlie Clapham) to kill Mercedes. When he fails to do so, Grace kidnaps his brother Joe Roscoe (Ayden Callaghan), tying him up in the council flats due to be destroyed. He tries to rescue Joe, but fails to reach the flats before they are destroyed by the wrecking ball. Joe survives and testifies against Grace in court, but she is found innocent. After the court case, Mercedes accidentally shoots Grace, which leaves Grace infertile. Freddie covers up the culprit of the crime, and Grace agrees to stay silent on the matter.

Fraser is murdered by Freddie, leaving Grace devastated. She accuses various people of being the murderer, but lets Trevor go to prison, under the impression that he killed Fraser. Despite this, Trevor is later proven innocent. They reunite and Grace hides her infertility from Trevor, lying when he asks about her gunshot wound. She later tells him the truth, and he promises that they can try for a baby another way. The two of them try for a baby via IVF: this succeeds, but Grace miscarriages a week into her pregnancy. Esther Bloom (Jazmine Franks) steps in and offers to be a surrogate - a symbol of gratitude for Grace saving Esther's life.

In January 2015, it is revealed that Grace 'killed' Mercedes so she did not sell her share of The Loft to Freddie. Mercedes was not dead but hiding out in Grace's luxury villa in Nice, France. The two women are trying to frame Freddie for killing Mercedes, this being Grace's revenge for Freddie killing Fraser. Grace begins a feud with Lindsey, who tries to show that Freddie is innocent.

Meanwhile, Porsche McQueen (Twinnie-Lee Moore), Mercedes' cousin, lies that she and Trevor had sex; revenge for Lockie sleeping with Diane. Grace mistakenly believes this and ends the relationship. Trevor tries to convince her it was a lie, but Grace still does not believe him even when Porsche tells the truth - or when he passes the lie detector test. When she kisses Kim Butterfield (Daisy Wood-Davis) - the girlfriend of Esther - the audience learn that Grace is bisexual. Kim immediately develops an infatuation with Grace, which escalates into obsession. Shortly after Trevor and Grace get engaged at his birthday party, Grace is jailed for Mercedes' 'murder'. Kim subsequently gets herself jailed in order to spend time alone with Grace: they have sex in their shared cell, which Grace regrets straight away. She rejects Kim, who reveals the tryst as soon as Grace is freed. Trevor breaks up with Grace, and Esther refuses to give up the unborn baby. Believing she has nothing else to stay out of prison, Grace turns up to Freddie's wedding, armed with a gun. Trevor talks Grace out of shooting Freddie, and they reunite.

Esther and Kim also reunite, making Grace paranoid that Esther be too happy to give away the baby. Secretly, Grace fakes feelings for Kim to ensure this scenario does not happen. The two embark on a secret affair, ending in Kim inducing Esther's premature labour. The baby is named Curtis Royle, but Esther wants to keep him anyway. Grace wins the custody battle and dumps Kim, so Kim persuades Esther to run away with Curtis. This is unsuccessful and results in a car crash, causing the death of Dylan, Trevor's son. Trevor blames Grace for Dylan's death and sends her away, threatening to kill her if she ever returned.

Trevor later apologises and persuades Grace to return to the village; she later lets him be jailed again and breaks up with him, under the belief that he is a serial murderer. Whilst he is in jail, she has casual sex with Darren Osborne and a short-lived relationship with Esther. When Trevor is proven innocent, Grace dumps Esther to be with him again. Trevor develops PTSD after being attacked, and has an affair with Sienna Blake: this is because Grace frequently berates him for his mental illness, repeatedly telling him to 'man up'. He ends the affair and their wedding day approaches. On the morning of the wedding, a sobbing Grace tells him of a recurring nightmare she has, in which her groom jilted her and she was humiliated. She makes him promise not to do the same. Trevor is stabbed by Nico and calls 999, but hangs up, intending to keep his promise to Grace. He hides his stab wound and goes through with the wedding. The ceremony gets up to them both saying "I do" before Trevor collapses and dies in Grace's arms.
