EastEnders: Lauren slaps Abi as Walford reels from Steven’s death

The sisters come to blows as spiteful Abi sticks the knife in

Week 37 - Lauren and Abi

Emotions are running high in EastEnders this week following Steven Beale’s shock death on Friday.


Lauren Branning struggles in the aftermath of losing her fiancé, but remains unaware he lied about having a terminal brain tumour – or that he was having an affair with her little sister Abi and that she is pregnant by him.

In a heated argument in tomorrow night’s episode, Abi is desperate to keep her involvement with Steven’s secrets from being exposed but can barely conceal her hatred for her sister.

Week 37 - Lauren and Abi2

Accusing Lauren of never loving Steven, Abs gets treated to a slap round the face as recriminations begin to fly.

With Jane Beale in the know about Abi and Steven’s deceit, but handily unconscious following the fire at Beale’s where she was left for dead by Steven and Max Branning, the truth is currently still under wraps.

But spiteful Abi is a ticking time bomb so surely it’s only a matter of time before Lauren finds out what was really going on in the final few months of her disturbed boyfriend’s life?
