The week that EastEnders fans have been waiting for is about to come to fruition – and it’s one that you won’t forget.
Carnage turns life in Walford upside down as Max Branning’s scheming comes to a head, Steven Beale’s despicable lie is exposed, Linda Carter’s secret is revealed and a series of shocking stunts leaves at least one resident dead.
With gas explosions, shootings, crashes and deadly blazes, there is a lot going down on the Square – here are 16 big story strands in a week that changes life forever.
1- The ongoing troubles of Mick and Linda Carter come to a head as Linda makes a big decision. While Whitney assures her that Mick only loves his wife, seeing Mick with Whitney drives Linda to make a bold move. Is she calling time on her marriage?
2- Jane Beale has discovered the truth about Steven’s brain tumour lie and he implores Max Branning to help him deal with it. But Jane has more realisations to come – as she learns how involved Max was with the lie and then discovers the extent of his big revenge plan.
3- Fi Browning is ready to make a speech to the community on behalf of the Vic as Walford in Bloom gets underway but after a few tipples, she gets everyone’s backs up with what she says and is jeered. Her actions leave Max unsettled and he warns her to reign it in.
4- There’s a birthday party for Janet and Ricky but Billy Mitchell is distracted by the tension between Jay and Phil – and sets out to confront Phil over what he has done. But can he get through to him and can Jay and the Mitchells be reunited?
5- Horror unfolds in the midst of Walford in Bloom as a gas main explodes and sends a terrible fireball through the gathered crowd. As Albert Square faces peril, many loved ones are missing and not everyone will survive the week.
6- Steven comes face to face with Jane in the restaurant and Max has warned him to deal with the issue before she exposes all of their secrets. As a showdown pushes Steven to the edge, he starts a fire and Jane finds herself trapped as events spiral out of control.
7- After the blast, Stacey Fowler’s loved ones are terrified to find that she is missing – as Martin searches for his wife, he fears the worst. Is this the end of Stacey?
8- She isn’t the only one missing either – the Mitchells realise with horror that Phil was close to the blast and launch a desperate search of their own. Will Jay lose Phil before they can make amends and before the full truth can come out?
9- The aftermath of the explosion brings back horrifying memories for Ted Murray and he grabs the gun he brought against all advice from Joyce. As his angst reaches dramatic heights, he opens fire on a neighbour coming to check on them but who has he shot?
10- Linda’s secret is about to be revealed too as she sits down with Jack in the wake of her big decision about Mick and opens up about what she has been hiding. But will the truth reach Mick?
11- Mr Pryce is injured in the blast and, oblivious to Stacey being missing, Bex races to his rescue. Can she become a hero and if so, will her joy turn to horror if there is bad news about Stacey?
12- When Johnny is seriously injured, he is rushed to hospital with Linda by his side but on the way, the ambulance collides with a tanker and overturns, leaving the situation worse than ever. Mick is horrified as a lifeless Johnny is pulled from the wreckage – are the Carters set to be torn apart?
13- The week could also see the much anticipated exit of Steven – after lying about a brain tumour and torching the restaurant with Jane inside, there is no way back. But will he be heading to prison, will he be departing in a coffin or is there another fate in store?
14- The Taylors face a terrible tragedy as Bernadette suffers a miscarriage and mum Karen can cope with no more agony. Shirley reaches out to her and a new bond is made – but can the Taylor family ever get past this?
15- Whatever happens, at least one main EastEnders character will lose their life in the terrible events – with the chance of more than one death a very real one. So which of our much loved favourites won’t be making it?
16- These 16 points highlight much of the dramatic storyline peaks in an unforgettable week but, as ever with EastEnders, there are major twists still to unfold. By a long stretch, we haven’t revealed everything so make sure you tune in – every character will be affected in some way.
