With Walford newcomer Kyle (Riley Carter Millington) having now dropped the bombshell on Stacey (Lacey Turner) that he’s the brother she never knew she had, EastEnders viewers are no doubt wondering what’s going to happen next.
Well, unfortunately, the family reunion is going to have a detrimental effect on Stacey’s already fragile mental health. Unbeknownst to those around her, Stacey is currently suffering with postpartum psychosis and will now be seen growing increasingly paranoid that new son Arthur is in danger.
And when Slater family patriarch ends up having a heart attack and dying, the stress proves to be the final straw for Stacey, who hares off to the allotments before calling Kyle for help.
Scenes to be shown this Thursday will see Kyle suggest that he and Stacey take shelter at a nearby cafe. But Kyle soon realises that something is wrong when Stacey suggests that they run away together immediately.
When Stacey’s attention is elsewhere, Kyle quickly calls Martin (James Bye) and tells him what’s going on. But will Martin and Kush (Davood Ghadami) arrive in time to stop Stacey from fleeing again?
