EastEnders Part 8

From the last thread:

[quote] Alfie is intolerable now. Will they ever fucking explain how they frittered away £1m?

There's supposed to be an upcoming episode where Kat & Alfie reference the events that happened in "Redwater," so maybe something will be said about the money then.

But honestly, given what an idiot Alfie is, they could say just about anything in regard to the money, and it would be believable.

And what about Alfie's brain tumor? THAT storyline actually started on regular EastEnders. As I recall, the surgery he was having at the end of "Redwater," while risky, was only some kind of exploratory thing to further determine what they were dealing with. It wasn't meant to cure his condition. He should be dead or at the very least having headaches and seizures all the time. And actually, after the last week of him, I wish the character were dead.

We need gay male characters on EE. Presently we have a bisexual woman and a non-sexual lesbian.

R9 I assume you're talking about Sonia and Tina? .. But we've also got drug queen-pin, Evie, who's like some kind of predatory lesbian or just 'sexual'. .. And I don't know what we're supposed to think of (questioning?) Bernadette or Tiffany. So yeah, we're really lacking on the male front.

Yeah, I forgot about the young lesbians. I assume it's just experimentation, except for Bernadette. Actually we need some gender-queer, non-binaries. Perhaps Dot can finally come out as an asexual.

R11 Yeah, they're all pretty easy to forget ... lol! .. Not much to write about. .. I was thinking Ray has so many affairs going on that he's almost like a sex addict. .. They should have thought about making at least one of his ongoing relationships be with a guy. They could explain it by saying it started when he was on some "undercover assignment" where he had to play gay and, well, things happen in the line of duty.

Obviously the number in the Slater apartment is meant as a running joke. But if it causes Martin to pair up with Kush in a "non-traditional family" arrangement so be it. Also the acting in the Linda Stuart scene was pretty good for EE standards. The acting does tend to improve in the longer scenes. I also liked the bar debate about rape. They got to expand their acting range a bit. Mo's comments were funny. She's one of my favorite characters as she reminds me a bit of my grandmother.

[quote] Obviously the number in the Slater apartment is meant as a running joke.

Well, at first; but now it's become a tiresome joke. .. You'd think they'd welcome Haley moving to Masood's with Cherry. They're just across the road. And if Alfie has enough cash to afford a loft conversion, why not just use that money for the deposit and first month's rent on a small flat? They could get by with 2 bdrms. .. Combined, that would get rid of 7 of them. .. Makes little sense.

I'm also laughing at the choir practice scenes. They keep arguing about who's going to do "the solo," when they have Bex just sitting there, filling a seat. She's a music student who's actually performed more than a couple of times, yet no one suggests her.

[quote] Meanwhile, Ray was up to no good by confronting Phil Mitchell (Steve McFadden) with an offer to buy E20 outright for Mel. Phil scoffed at the idea, but was later forced onto the back foot when Ray revealed this his sister's ex-boyfriend is gangster Aidan Maguire. Unfortunately for Phil, Aidan had filled Ray in on the disappearances of both Luke Browning and Vincent Hubbard, so Ray forced Phil to sign over ownership of the club to Mel for £600,000.

This happened not long before the Mel-Ray wedding, and as I recall Ray told Mel about what he'd done for her during their pre-wedding fight.

But the odd thing is, I also listened to the Audio Description (AD) version of the episode.

R213 you’re still in 2008 then, love.

The good news is that your version of Steven Beale is gay and gets some action, albeit from his Uncle and awkwardly. The 2010’s version of Steven is very different, but I’m sure you’ve gleaned as much by now (if not please visit EE DL threads 3-6).

Back in 2008 you’ve still got Stacey & Bradley OTP; fun footloose floozy Roxy tending bar; fresh-off-the-bus Whit & Tiff when they’re still a novelty; plus the arrival of the indominitable Christian Clarke. Iirc Jack Branning is a relatively new arrival in this period and has a decent arc with Max.

It’s a fairly enjoyable year coming up for you, though tbh there’s a lot of filler and mostly irrelevant characters who either leave within a couple of years or whose backstories radically change later on - so don’t get too invested (but being a fan you have to know that by now).

News on why Ben is coming back -- to help Phil out of a mess he's got with his dodgy dealings in Spain.

Also, on the romance front, Oates adds:

[quote] We’re likely to see a bit more conflict between father and son and a much more confident Ben. He's a pivotal character and we have some great material coming up. What we also bring back is a Ben who is a lot more confident and comfortable with his sexuality. Ben is a complex character with many connections to explore but yes, we might be seeing some romance before long.

R307 I don't think there's any real backstory to tell. .. While Chantelle has been mentioned a few times since 2017 (when Karen and her brood first showed up), Chantelle herself has never been seen. .. Honestly, I didn't even know she was supposed to be a "Baker" belonging to Mitch, as news articles now seem to be indicating. .. And you can still find Wiki references to the character as "Chantelle Taylor" (with no description). .. It was previously made out to sound that Chantelle was was Karen's oldest child; so if she's a Baker, then that would mean Karen was with Mitch, got involved with Keanu's father, Shane, then got re-involved with Mitch to have Keegan.

R342 While they didn't say this, I got the idea that Mel may have somehow found a way to text Jack after DS Barnes left the interrogation room to follow-up on Jack being her alibi.

Perhaps, Mel was able to send Jack something sparse like "need alibi" with a few bullet points ??

Anyway, when DC Hazari was interviewing Jack, he kept looking at his cell phone on the kitchen counter, as if he was nervous about what it might show. In fact, it looked like he may have being going into the kitchen to get it (pocket it), but then he realized the two detectives were following him, so he didn't want to draw attention to handling it and just left it there.

That's all I've got.

I'm pretty neutral on the Masood character and whether he's out, but this exit storyline and his reasons for leaving (for good), make absolutely no sense.

He tells Tam that he's "got nothing going in Walford," yet he's partner in a successful restaurant operation, just began a love affair that he's obviously enjoying, has relatives on the square, a daughter and granddaughter over in Barnet, and a son, another granddaughter, and a brother right up in Birmingham. ..

Iqra is the one who specifically resembles Kourtney Kardashian (KK is pictured below). She’s the one who flies off the handle, fired Ruby 3 times in 2 episodes, and who Kush likes.

Habiba is the more angular sister who was comforting Bernie when she was stood up by her Tindr date.

It’s been confirmed that Hayley isn’t coming back. Good. The actress wasn’t bad but the character was shoved down our throats. 97 episodes in 2018, according to Walford Web. Hayley should have been a six month villainess and no more than that. She was so scuzzy looking. When Kat referred to her as “gorgeous” just a few days after she found out she’d had a baby by Alfie I wanted to throw something at the TV. With that skin and those teeth and that attitude? I don’t fucking think so. It would have been the same if someone described Stuart as being “fit.”

No way was Haley "gorgeous." Besides the bad teeth and skin, her hair looked fried, like one of those cheap, dried-out, black wigs that kids wear at Halloween. And that scratchy voice. Does she smoke two packs a day? She not only looked bad, but sounded bad. I used to imagine she smelled bad too.

As for Stuart, I just don't care about his character. It doesn't matter that he looks like Uncle Fester. I think it's a mistake to have kept around. For me, he's just a reminder of how bad much of last year was, and I especially hated that story.

Halfway looks like like he's gained 30 pounds .. and not in a Goodway.

As for Gray, could there be another reason why he wants to keep Chantelle busy at work full-time? I can see it getting her out of the way, so he and his random Crusadr hook-ups can put that renovated basement at No. 1 to good use.

And Oates version of Ben? If he's meant to be totally repellent, then we have success. Human trafficking makes him a disgusting piece of shit. And his insulting pub "banter" just makes him pathetic.

Is Ben the one who was abused by Sophie Thompson?

Weird that Danny Dyer is being paid so much and yet isn't really on screen a lot at the moment.

I think Honey is going to get her heart broken. Maybe she will hook up with Jack Branning.

Yes indeed, we too use "cookies." Don't you just LOVE clicking on these things on every single site you visit? I know we do! You can thank the EU parliament for making everyone in the world click on these pointless things while changing absolutely nothing. If you are interested you can take a look at our privacy/terms or if you just want to see the damn site without all this bureaucratic nonsense, click ACCEPT and we'll set a dreaded cookie to make it go away.
