The fallout of Lisa Fowler’s brief but dramatic return to EastEnders is felt in next week’s episodes as Louise Mitchell struggles in the aftermath of her mother’s breakdown.
Lisa rushed to her daughter’s bedside last month following Lou’s traumatic burning accident at the school prom disaster, despite cutting herself out of her life for the last few years.
The reunion between Lisa and Lou’s dad Phil was predictably explosive, and triggered Lisa’s mental health demons that saw her abandoning her medication and abducting her daughter and going on the run to keep her away from her bullying dad.
With Louise’s life at risk as she was still recovering from her injuries, Phil tracked them down to their hiding place in a seaside hotel in Essex, by which time Lisa was in the grip of a full-on meltdown and was admitted to hospital.
In these new pictures from tomorrow’s episode, Phil and wife Sharon become increasingly concerned about Louise’s state of mind as the dust settles, leading Phil to have an emotional heart-to-heart with his daughter.
Will Louise open up about her experience at seeing her mother’s mental illness up close? Can she forgive her father for the part he played in making her so mixed up?
