With only a few weeks to go until Christmas, Albert Square is teeming with happy folk dispensing goodwill and joy to all. No, not really! It’s traditionally the most miserable time of the year in Walford and 2012 is no exception. Alfie’s anxiously checking up on Kat’s every move; Bianca’s struggling to provide for her kids; Derek’s pressuring Max and antagonising everyone else; and Ben is sentenced for Heather’s murder.
Remarkably, Phil actually shows a smidgen of remorse about his son, but no sooner is the sentence out of his mouth than he spots a familiar figure. She always looks angry, but this time she looks incandescent with rage.
Ben and Jay have their day in court and after their sentences are handed down the Mitchells arrive back in the Square, where a surprise visitor awaits. Shirley's back - and she isn't happy. Alfie returns from Germany, but his good mood is dampened when Jean jokes about Kat receiving a call from her lover. Bianca heads to the salon to continue her trial, only to discover Lola is doing the same, while Patrick makes Cora think about the importance of family.
