Episode 5611



There was a definite fear earlier this year that Max Branning had reached the point of no return. Traditionally a liar and a love cheat, Max morphed into a borderline killer during 2017 when he abandoned Jane to her fate in a burning building. In the end, Jane survived, but fans were left worried that the character of Max could never recover, having now become a full-on villain. Well, EastEnders has obviously now had a bit of a rethink, with the rehabilitation of Max beginning in earnest this week. At the moment, he’s been unmasked and ostracised – but what’s the betting he’s earned our sympathies again by Christmas?


The highs and lows of life with the residents of Albert Square, Walford.
