EastEnders return for evil Theo Hawthorne as a terrified Stacey takes huge risk

EastEnders: Dean forces Linda to lie about rape accusation

EastEnders’ Stacey Slater (played by Lacey Turner) takes a big gamble in upcoming episodes of the BBC soap.

Stacey spent most of the year being stalked and harassed by Theo Hawthrown (William Ellis), and a couple of months ago things came to a head when Theo broke into Stacey’s and attempted to assault her.

Freddie Slater (Bobby Brazier) walked in and attacked Theo violently, causing him to be hospitalised for weeks.

Stacey and Eve Unwin (Heather Peace) tried to cover up Freddie’s attack, planting a weapon on Theo’s lifeless body to fabricate a self-defence story.

The court case is now approaching though and Theo has made a return to Walford, frightening Stacey.

Things are set to get more complicated for the family, and in scenes yet to air, Stacey is still reeling at Theo’s attempts to make contact on the day of his plea hearing, asking to meet.

Stacey is reluctant, but after Lily Slater (Lilia Turner) opens up about her worries concerning her mum to Ricky Branning (Frankie Day), Stacey decides to go.

At the meet, Stacey tries to manipulate Theo into pleading guilty by promising to restart their “relationship” once he’s served his time.

However, Stacey starts to worry she’s made the situation worse as Theo reacts badly to her suggestion.

Jean Slater (Gillian Wright) tries to discourage Stacey from attending Theo’s plea hearing, but she’s certain that she wants to be there.

Martin Fowler (James Bye) and Jack Branning (Scott Maslen) support Stacey as she anxiously waits for Theo to give evidence.

Jack tells Stacey that due to his position, he must inform the authorities of Stacey’s confession.

Stacey details her actions and pleads with Jack to keep quiet, which he reluctantly accepts.

The pair have a heart-to-heart about the past as Stacey is touched by his support.

Will Stacey get the outcome she’s hoping for?

Theo is unlikely to reason with her and will likely be out for revenge – could Freddie, Stacey and Eve be in danger of facing the law themselves if their actions are revealed?

EastEnders continues on Monday at 7.30pm on BBC One.
