    The actual rumour is that the loft will collapse on Christmas Day leading to DEATH AND TERROR :o

    Shane Ritchie is joining the new cast of Everybody’s Talking About Jamie so luckily Alfie’s current stint should be brief.

    I’m not sure exactly who if the 345 people who are currently living in the Slater house they could kill off. They’d never get rid of Stacey or Martin. Or any of the kids. Alfie is the most disposable.

    I don’t watch regularly but Hayley seems like such a non-starter as a Slater. Miserable and without any of the typically redeeming qualities.

    Not as bad as Lyn, admittedly.

    I’ve not been watching all year but this Hayley bitch seems so unlikeable. Who the fuck is she?

    I didn’t watch Eastenders when Lofty or punk Mary were around. I was in the depths of nowhere at that point with not much more than RTE.

    And what about Linda though last night. That was a bit off. Imagine how Mick will feel if he finds out

    Stuart doesn’t quite sound like he’s even close to confessing anything to her either.

    Is she meant to be shit at pretending or is that the actress?

    Yes Linda! I really enjoyed that two-hander, it feels like they don't do many of them nowadays.

    COME ON LINDA. As if she would touch that VILE SLOB when she has Mick Carter to cuddle up to at night.

    I stopped watching back in January because I just couldn’t cope with how bad it had become, particularly with that heist and those Irish people that were hanging around. Is it worth gearing up to tune back in on a regular basis? I understand I have regrettably missed a Dame Sharon purple patch.

    So Lola is coming back next year, which seems a SENSIBLE choice, given there was no valid reason to axe her in the first place.

    More screen time for Billy Mitchell UNFORTUNATELY, but it’s a small price to pay.

    Laila Morse has managed to get a part in the new Hellboy film, and is prominently featured in the trailer firing a machine gun :o

    Did Gary Oldman finally relent and pass on his Hollywood connections?

    Two new sisters joining as well.

    It seems Kate Oates is just UNDOING all of the bad decisions made over the last few years.

    I know she is as wooden as pinnochio but everyone needs a Big Mo in their life.

    The Mitchell sisters were AMAZING when they initially arrived straight off the plane from Ibiza. Albert Square ruined them.

    In fairness, you could say that about MOST characters :D

    Whilst killing off Ronnie and Roxy was obviously up there with Cindy Beale in terms of bad decision making, they were undeniably stuck in a rut.

    Shout it with her monotone delivery, you mean.

    If ever there was an actress (:side-eye:) who wouldn’t know nuance if it bit her on the arse...

    Is Alfie DEAD?

    Surely they can’t send Kat and Alfie around the same carousel of MISERY yet again. They need to break the cycle and this is the perfect opportunity.

    Plus I already see people calling for this to be the ‘10s equivalent of the iconic Chrissie/Sam/Zoe murder trio.

    I really enjoyed him turning proper NASTY right at the end - they never really played with that side of the character enough for my liking (the idea of the cheeky chappy stuff being a false persona), and he'd have been far more interesting if they had.

    Yeah, I thought it was quite an interesting angle to take with Alfie, but it also seemed quite a CONVENIENT way to make him a twat before they killed him.

    I have not seen this in a year, so can someone tell me if Kat's killerpriest son has ever been mentioned since her return, and how did Alfie recover from his 'inoperable' brain timour from Redwater?

    Or is it a case that it never happened?

    I think it never happened, but they Alfie’s brain tumour was introduced in proper Eastenders and they haven’t mentioned it at all.

    Did they explain how Kat’s facial scars from the burns from the house fire have disappeared? Did they spent their entire scratch card win on facial surgery?

    They need to kill them both really to avoid all these ridiculous inconsistencies.

    Wasn’t there meant to be someone returning on Christmas Day?

    I thought what Alfie said to Kat at the end was really horrible :(

    That was the first episode I've watched in a year and it was great! Kat was brilliant and we can all hope he's dead.
