There has been the usual share of highs, lows and bizarre behaviour that we all expect from the residents of the popular Square. So, here’s a taste of what last week had to offer:
Babe’s on borrowed time ~ Babe (Annette Badland) has been behaving like the spoilt and petulant child of the Carter family of late, and her schemes caught up with her this week – leaving Mick (Danny Dyer) with yet another death stare opportunity. Mick has been under a black cloud since Linda (Kellie Bright) went on her my dash to stay with her mum. I think Babe’s days truly are numbered now that she has rocked the boat in such spectacular fashion.
Lee loses it (again!) ~ Just the week before, Babe was blaming Whitney (Shona McGarty) for Lee’s (Danny-Boy Hatchard) misfortunes, but now the man himself has turned on Whitney and blames her, too. I can’t be alone in thinking that a percentage of Lee’s troubles may have been spurred on by his unsuspecting wife, but surely only because of his state of mind at the time. Either way, their relationship seems to be on a downward spiral with no light at the end of the tunnel.
Glenda ~ Just that, Glenda! I love Glynis Barber and all that she brings to the role. Now that we’re without her two daughters, I think the way is clear for her to stir things up and become a prominent part of the Square again. Good decision!
Facing the Funeral ~ Jack (Scott Maslen) has played the bereaved husband so believably that it’s broken my heart. When we finally said our goodbyes to Ronnie (Samantha Womack) and Roxy (Rita Simons) it was such an emotive episode that I almost couldn’t watch. I’m not going to wax lyrical, the scene with Jack and the children summed it up for me, haunting.
Stacey’s Shoulder ~ Has anyone else noticed that Stacey (Lacey Turner) has turned into the shoulder to cry on and the voice of reason? What a turn around from her Puerperal Psychosis – who’d have thought it? Although I still think she might run back into Max’s (Jake Wood) arms before long. Just a hunch.
