EastEnders: Abi snaps and attacks Stacey

Not content with disowning dad Max and dobbing him into the police, Abi launches an attack on his confidante


Remember the days when Abi was a well-intentioned blonde pigtailed wannabe vet? It seems like just yesterday the youngest Branning – bar Oscar, granted – was brimming with youthful joy.


It’s long gone now though, and the unrepentant dog killer is really embracing her new life as an adoptive Mitchell. She’s even following in Phil’s footsteps and scrapping on the Square with former sister-in-law Stacey.

We know the pair have history: Stacey did sleep with Max before marrying Abi’s half brother Bradley, splitting up the teen’s mum and dad in the process. But it seems as though that won’t be the reason she launches an attack on the unsuspecting Slater.

Could it have something to do with Max’s pivotal Tuesday night prison phone call. “I didn’t kill Lucy, but I know who did”, daddy Branning told his one-time lover turned trusted confidante.

By Thursday evening Stacey’s tracking down his daughter, Abi, to discuss her whereabouts on the fateful Good Friday night Lucy Beale met her maker.

The sit down for a bit of a chat on Arthur Fowler’s bench, but the conversation takes a turn for the worse when Abi snaps and launches a surprise attack.

Why so seriously vicious Abi? Find out when EastEnders airs these scenes on Thursday July 30th.
