Also Ian and Jean? When the fuck did that happen!
I kept checking online to see if I’d missed an episode after Mick put Stuart in the boot of the car. It seemed like so much had happened between. They did that once when Kush had that heart attack on Friday and was then in the cafe on Monday morning.
That was the biggest pile of bullshit I’ve seen on Eastenders for years.
I have just watched the festive episodes. What the HELL was going on? Kat was amazing and I really thought Alfie was dead but he was just holding his breath. Suppose he has got to be good at SOMETHING.
I must admit though I loved the sheer drama of it all.
Jean stepping over Alfie’s “dead” body to offer everyone tea and crumpets was probably my favourite moment of the lot though.
It just feels that nothing of consequence actually happens anymore - particularly during the “big” episodes. None of the other soaps could compare to an EastEnders climax, but nowadays it’s like they just can’t decide when to end a storyline.
Lauren and Abi’s fall last year ended up in a drawn out MESS of a storyline that squandered the impact of Jo Joyner’s return.
If they’d actually killed Alfie this year, it probably would’ve been quite memorable. Instead it was two episodes of screaming and now Alfie’s run off with a child that Hayley tried to give away 4 weeks ago anyway.
And don’t even get me started on Mick and Stuart going around in circles.
Has the new producer started yet? Ian Beale and Jean are not an ideal pairing really are they? I have enjoyed Linda of late though, and I do agree the whole storyline strikes me as a bit half baked.
Last year's new year storyline was the ridiculous gang raid thing. And this year we've got Alfie and the baby
The new year storyline is Mel's revenge on her fiancé, no?
