Eastenders Round-Up ~ Week Commencing 8 May 2017

Is it me or does it feel like time has stood still since last week’s episodes of EastEnders? Problems remain the same, it seems and misery is ever-present, here are a few highlights:

Lauren is thrown when Steven turns up at her work. Josh (EDDIE EYRE), Lauren Branning (JACQUELINE JOSSA), Louie, Steven Beale (AARON SIDWELL) – (C) BBC – Photographer: Jack Barnes

Denise ~ Oh Denise, who’d have thought that life outside of the Minute Mart would be so doom-filled. If she’s not rowing with Kim, she’s wandering about the Square with a long face. Who’d have thought that Sharon would have shown compassion? Plus, who knows, maybe there’s some post-natal depression there.

Lauren’s Predicament ~ When Steven turns up at Lauren’s new workplace, and with Louie in tow – it’s rather #awks ! Lauren is playing a dangerous little game and her home-life colliding with her work-life is rather a messy situation. How long will she continue to hanker after Josh?

Whitney’s at her wits end ~ Whitney receives a visit from Moose, it appears that Lee is filing for divorce. It all happens for he, don’t it?! So what’s the best way of dealing with it? Move on to Woody!

Michelle’s Job Hunt ~ Denise is still struggling to find employment, of that we’re all painfully aware – but so is Michelle. How long will Ms Fowler be in the realms of the unemployed for? It seems we’ve yet to wait!

Abi’s Co-habiting habits ~ Abi is irritating her fellow housemates with her OCD, to the point where Ben is plotting a little playful revenge. However she soon trumps that with a cleaning schedule! I doubt this living arrangement will continue to be happy for long!

Eastenders Round-Up ~ Week Commencing 1 May 2017

Another joy filled week in Walford, culminating in a horrific stunt by the resident bullies – here are some highlights:

Denise tentatively asks Kim for some money back. Denise Fox (DIANE PARISH), Vincent Hubbard (RICHARD BLACKWOOD), Kim Fox-Hubbard (TAMEKA EMPSON) – (C) BBC – Photographer: Jack Barnes

Fit Beale ~ Jane’s bought Ian a present, there’s a few steamy looks passing between them until she reveals that it’s a fit bit! Cue Ian scheming to demonstrate that he is getting his thousands of steps in. Using his grandson wouldn’t be part of the deception would it? Oh yes it would!

Jane’s triumph ~ Once Ian has stopped cheating the fit bit, Jane shows him her ability to log some steps on her fit bit, and it’s a touching moment when Ian realises how far Jane has come. I can’t be alone in wishing for a full recovery for Mrs Beale?

Woody’s unpopular ~ Sacking Tracey from The Queen Vic? What on earth was Woody thinking! I loved the riot it kicked up and maybe he will think twice before he makes any further rash decisions, or maybe not! All hail Tracey, the heart of the Queen Vic Pub!

Jobs a good ‘un (or not…) ~ Denise and Michelle are both off to interviews, Denise’s interview is not quite as high-brow as she imagined, given that it ends up being a cleaning job. Michelle’s is yet another education based option. Either way, job hunting is not going well for either of them and Denise is on her knees financially. When will the girl get a break?

Party time ~ Louise thinks she’s having a pyjama party with her ‘lovely’ mates, they have other plans and Sharon’s house is turned into party central with a selection of invited guests rocking up, including Travis and Keegan. The cocktails that Louise is necking in an attempt to look cool aren’t as innocent as she thinks and disaster strikes leaving the troubled teen unconscious in the street and an ambulance on its way. I wonder when we’ll see an end to the bullying storyline? It could run and run because that would reflect real life, of course.

 

 

 

Eastenders Round-Up ~ Week Commencing 24 April 2017

Life in Walford has continues to be messy for its residents, with cunning plans unfolding and deceit in every corner of the Square, let’s look at some highlights…

Fi Browning (LISA FAULKNER) – (C) BBC – Photographer: Nicky Johnston

Ladies Night ~ New arrival, Woody is full of ideas, it seems and not all of them bad ones! His mates happens to be strippers, so a Ladies Night is planned and there are a few happy punters in The Vic that night, too. Let’s see if Woody can compete against Max Branning!

Derek’s hired! ~ Honey was starting to lose the will with her new ‘apprentice’, Derek – however despite many false starts from the well meaning pensioner, the pair have struck up a good working relationship. Whether Derek will always be able to have a handle on resident bully Keegan? Remains to be seen…

Investigations at The Vic ~ New character, Fi is on the prowl at the Queen Vic checking the books and generally stressing Shirl and co. out! Meanwhile Max continues to hover in the background until he can make his move. Troubling times ahead for the already scarred Carter family!

Abi’s house-share ~ Donna and Abi are busy cooking up a plot for Abi to move into the spare room in the shared house with Jay and Ben. Moving in with her two ex boyfriends doesn’t seem to faze the young Branning girl, however the boys are not so sure. Persuasive efforts go some way towards convincing them and even though Abi has had second thoughts about leaving Dot, it looks as though there will be a ‘Friend’ style living arrangement going on. It’s bound to be interesting!

Steven & Lauren ~ Over at The Beale house, Steven almost puts the mockers on Lauren’s second interview when he answers her mobile and claims that the caller has the wrong number! His plan is foiled when Lauren receives an email, but if Steven doesn’t want her to get the job and with her dad working against her too – Lauren’s career plans look doomed to fail.
