Fair City's Will finally got what was coming to him in tonight's instalment of the soap

Deservedly so, too.

Earlier this week, Fair City broadcast one of its darkest episodes to date as Will and Cristiano's abusive relationship came to a head.

Will had locked himself and his partner into their flat, threatening Cristiano with violence if he dared to tell anybody else what was going on.

After attacking Cristiano and leaving him for dead, Will attempted to flee the scene, only to be run over by a car and taken away in an ambulance.

Luckily, Cristiano was also discovered by Damien and Mairead who ensured that he made it to the hospital and survived the ordeal.

During tonight's episode, Will finally got what was coming to him.

Sitting in hospital, he was visited by Sergeant Deegan who told him: "We'll bring you on to the station, where you'll be charged, and then it's on to Cloverhill."

Will, not fully understanding the gravity of his crime, questioned whether he will be locked up or not.

Deegan told him that he will be, until his bail hearing, to which Will responded: "No, no, I know what I did was wrong, but I'm not some sort of violent thug!"

"No?" asks Deegan, knowingly.

Will also revealed tonight that he had actually intended to kill Cristiano, having appeared shocked upon discovering that his partner had, in fact, survived the beating.

This came after Cristiano became quite panicked that Will had been admitted to the same hospital as him.

Despite this, his friends rallied around him, vowing to protect him from his abuser.

Fair City continues on Sunday night at 8pm on RTÉ One.
