Jane Beale looks set to be put in fresh danger on next week’s EastEnders when she wakes up – only to be met with the sight of evil Max Branning looming over her.
Max did, of course, leave Jane to die in the recent blaze at Beales’ restaurant, telling her that he was punishing her for letting him take the rap for Lucy’s murder.
Jane, however, did not end up perishing the flames and has been receiving treatment in hospital ever since – a pensive Max doing his best to keep a close watch on her.
Now, the upcoming drama will see Jane’s breathing tube removed and there are no prizes for guessing who is lurking nearby at the pivotal moment…
Scenes to be shown on Thursday 12 October see Ian called back to the Square, while Max offers to stay by Jane’s bedside.
As Jane wakes, she gets the shock of her life when she finds herself alone with the very man who wanted to see her dead.
So will Max now finish Jane off? Or will the tense plotline take a fresh twist?
