Future episode[edit]

I've replaced a vague "spoiler" tag from a section describing future events with a more specific "future television|type=episode" tag. Please remove that tag when the episode has been broadcast.

One question I have is: where did this information come from? It's one thing to describe events that any regulat viewer can verify from memory, quite another to describe events in an as-yet unbroadcast episode that is probably still under embargo. If there isn't a public source, it should probably be removed because it's impossible for us to distinguish it from speculation or a practical joke. --Tony Sidaway 13:09, 28 June 2007 (UTC)

(Ex-)boyfriend and possibility of return[edit]

I think that JP should be down as ex-boyfriend because he has clearly split up with him. I know that an article on Digitalspy says that Craig may return, but I don't think they will get back together again. Therefore, I feel that it should say "Ex-boyfriend" and information about them getting together again taken off. [Jam][talk] 02:59, 24 September 2007 (UTC)

I agree JP should be put as ex-boyfriend, but since the show sort of left the door open with that ending and Guy has said he might come back to see JP off if James leaves the show, I think there should be some left, maybe edited down a bit, about the possibility of them getting back together. --JamesB3 05:29, 24 September 2007 (UTC)
I agree. Do you want to make the relevant changes or shall I? -- [Jam][talk] 15:22, 24 September 2007 (UTC)
Since you had some of the changes you felt would improve the article, maybe you should do them. --JamesB3 15:41, 24 September 2007 (UTC)

Of course they'll get back together again! What is wrong with you people? —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 15:14, 25 September 2007 (UTC)

Maybe we are just being realistic? Craig has gone to Ireland alone, JP is still in Hollyoaks but considering leaving. The way that JP and Craig "left" each other at the airport suggests this too. There is little to no chance that they will get back together. Sorry to burst your bubble. -- [Jam][talk] 15:24, 25 September 2007 (UTC)
There's always a chance - Guy Burnet has said he would come back, and Bryan Kirkwood has said this was the best story ever on the show - but for right now, they are apart. That's why they are listed as ex. --JamesB3 18:27, 25 September 2007 (UTC)
I think the way it is now (following JamesB3's changes) makes the most sense. -- [Jam][talk] 18:33, 25 September 2007 (UTC)

Is a lot of this really necessary?[edit]

I'm sure lots of this article can be cut of needless, superfluous content. Also, some of the language used is unencyclopedic, for example 'bitching'. I can't even explain which sections or paragraphs need fixing, there's just so much. In addition, is there confirmation for what the slur used after Craig sleeps with JP is? It's variously described as 'faggot' and 'queer'. I'd like someone else to contribute, so we can reach consensus on what needs to be done. magentafeelings (talk) 05:01, 30 March 2013 (UTC)

The article is mostly plot. And per WP:PLOT, a lot of that should be significantly cut down. It'd be different if the plot were presented in a way similar to the style seen in the WP:FA Pauline Fowler article, which uses a WP:Real-world approach: Wikipedia:Manual of Style/Writing about fiction#Contextual presentation.
