Ben is a real nasty piece of work. Stuart is being redeemed. In some sense he was redeemed by Dot's acceptance and Christian love. Dot is the last Christian on the square. Decades ago, for those who want to attack, they had her go thru the acceptance of AIDS thing. She's retained her Christian beliefs but become accepting. As a comedic episode there was her prayer by the tomb of her best friend, (Ethel?) who she had helped commit suicide (because of her suffering), which she also had to deal with and grow from. "Our Father, What is in Heaven..." Will miss Dot.

There's quite a few residents who could use some time in the gym.
They should have Kush exit the street stall and have him take over what used to be "Ronnie's Boxing Club & Gym" (Basher's). I assume Jack still owns the place? I remember it was mentioned after Ronnie died. Anyway, it could be turned into "Albert Square CrossFit" or something. The extras from the gay nightclub scenes can work out there too. .. lol!
Kush isn't seriously planning to selling cheap tat for the next 35 years, is he? He could always keep the stall and have someone else work it for him.

If it was a real East End neighbourhood it would have a gym, a juice bar, an ice cream shop, a vegetarian/vegan café, a small venue for live music, a deli and plenty of little independent gift shops, bakeries etc. EastEnders is currently doing a huge set expansion so perhaps a few of these places will appear, with time

R34, R35, surely they won't do something so tone deaf as kill off the show's only gay character? They got a massive backlash for killing Paul a few years ago. It's more likely that the traffickers will kidnap Lola and Lexi and one or both of them will die (and it will be Ben's fault).
I hope New Evil Ben wasn't just brought back to be a criminal. He needs a romantic storyline too. Spain is the centre of the gay porn industry in Europe so maybe he will bring back a porn star boyfriend. I want a big splashy relationship that's really in fat Phil's face.

I guess when the actor playing Midge, Tom Colley, was in "The Judas Kiss," he walked around the stage totally naked for 20 minutes. ( I remember brief mention of Colley in the DL thread on Ben Hardy, since Hardy also appeared naked in the play.)
When Colley did the same role in NY, an article on stage nudity made comment about his character (an Italian sailor who was Oscar Wilde's lover in Naples) saying:
[quote] Hare’s script has Wilde remark that the angler has “a generative organ like a rope that has been dipped in pitch.” As one critic noted: Colley well fulfills the physical demands of his role. The actor lounges seemingly without a care — and definitely without a piece of clothing — in the world for about 20 minutes. No props to cover his junk. Just a bit of pastry to nibble.

The Whores of Walford Calendar

January: Kat Slater, signature lepord-print blouse tied alluringly round her sizable midriff, pulling a pint at The Queen Vic. Her big, naked, pendulous titties are pointing due south towards the bar
February: Sharon Mitchell, beautifully spray-tanned, recreates the moment she was taken by Keanu on that delicate little kitchen table. The difference is now her perfect pins are spread high and wide, giving the paying masses full view of her freshly waxed cooter!
March: Svelte cougar Denise is in the laundrette completing her weekly service wash..in the buff! The picture captures a close up of her boney arse spreading as she bends into the dryer to retrieve her knickers
April: Stacey Fowler reclines proactively on her husband Martin's fruit and Veg stall.. Wearing nothing but a sultry pout and a pair of ug boots. The image captures the moment she entralls the male traders by firing a fresh apple right out of her muff!

I'm disappointed that the new Ben is just basically evil, one of the strengths of the character, particularly in the last version of him, is that he did objectively bad things but was basically just really messed up and was hurting himself as much as anyone else. Even though he got angry, and sometimes violent, I was usually sympathetic to him because the actor managed to show what was driving him which was the need for love (especially his dad's), for respect, and a compulsion to perform a particular version of masculinity that never sat quite right on him. I have to say, the last actor was amazing at conveying all of that - Ben's messiness and neediness and anger all at the same time.
It may make sense that that need for his dad's approval has turned into hatred of him but I don't think past Ben was evil like he is now, I feel like he has no sympathetic aspect he's just cold and heartless which, despite everything, old Ben never was. I

R187 W&W to your whole comment.
Harry Reid’s Ben and indeed the very first Ben (the kiddie one in the early 00s) made emotional sense, and seemed like a real albeit insanely traumatised person. He had feelings and desires and beliefs that all clashed inside of him to create an interesting fraught personality. Yes, he was Woobie-ish like Aaron off Emmerdale at times, but there were good character reasons for that. This new incarnation of Ben is more like a reset back to the chilly robotic second one, who nobody liked to watch or connected with because he was badly and barely drawn. It’s a total waste of years building a rich persona for the Mitchell heir.

She just wants to be genuinely and consistently cared for, and that’s not selfish so much as simply human. She may be materialistic and needy, but that’s just how her insecurity is showing up in her life. It’s similar to how Ben gets agg and goes off unadvisedly because his somatic impulses are fused to his self-disgust.

I can't decide whether Max/Ben is the perfect amount of camp/OTTness or if he takes the gurning too far and needs to rein it in a bit. Every scene with him is Walford Square bordering on Sunset Boulevard.
Although what I am sure of is that I wish he would tone down his vocal affectation.
I hope virginal Callum doesn't get an STI off of "hussy" Ben (to quote Ruby). He's already spread the clap to half the young population of Walford.
Max has so much charisma, though. He played that scene with Jamie/Jay at the party perfectly--just the right admixture of fraternal affection with a frisson of sexual tension.
Who do we think will be the first to find out about their affair? I'm hoping it's Louise.

I’m finding Max Bowden’s levels of camp pretty much perfect.
Ben generally leans pretty butch. But when he’s walking through the market and trying to annoy someone going the other direction - Callum, Rainie, Jay, whomever - he will swing his hips a bit and billow his jacket when he flounces past.
I am admittedly enjoying his already habitual sex faces and heavy breathing when violence of any sort is suggested in his personal space.

Yes there were grabby hands and grunts (racy for teatime), but their lips were more or less closed and didn’t meet dead-on. There wasn’t much closeness. It’s early days in their storyline so some tentativeness of course figures in the way it’s played, and I wouldn’t necessarily change it much.

The way that scene was filmed was quite interesting. Definitely memorable and, like everything involving Ben, dancing on the edge of OTT (especially the very last shot with the haloesque lighting). I think it would have been better and more striking if it had been an extended shot of their faces/lips with the jingling of the belt buckle a hint of what was happening. The frenetic switching between faces and clothing kind of dampened the perfect moment of the kiss for me.

Today Mrs Peel proved that she has no idea that there is a difference between love and sex with sentences like these :
"I do get that Paul was the love of Ben's life, but what did he mean by not having experienced anything since then? Ben had a full-on affair with Luke Browning in the middle of the Weyland mess. Even now, he's actively participating in Grindr hook-ups. Are you telling me that he simply cuddled and slept with the foreign hook-up who surprised Kathy the other week?"

Callum will fall for Ben, there will be a gay wedding in which Phil is to uncomfortable to go to but then has a last minute change of heart and turns up to the wedding, Ben and Callum will be happily married for a while before some forced drama occurs but they'll get over it, by which point a new producer will take over and make their mark on their show but axing Callum, having Ben turn dark for a while again and then axing him as well as the producer will lack the imagination to storyline for the character then the next producer will be brought in to fix the previous producers faults, this includes reintroducing Ben who has been recasted again with a revenge storyline against Phil to kick of his return which will be forgotten 3 months in to the stint and he will shagging some new guy.

Ted Reilly was unsuitable for soapland and perhaps he isn't even a good fit for telly in general, but I hear secondhand from people in the business that he's quite a reliable stage-actor. He's the lead in a show opening at the Nottingham Playhouse in about a week, and reports from rehearsal have been fair-to-excellent. Similar seems to apply to Aaron Sidwell who lately is doing rather a solid job in musicals and imported American plays.

You can definitely read a lot of homoeroticism into the Ben/Jay relationship, obviously. Especially during the Harry Reid period, when both actors played them almost as if they were a couple.
Whether Ben's in love with Jay is another matter. Certainly as his current incarnation that doesn't seem to be the case.

R428: Of course nothing's going to happen between Ben and Jay, but it's not like it's totally out of the blue that some of the shipper cohort would pick up on them, since Ben has canonically been attracted to Jay at least in the past (the drinking game scene at their flat when Harry was still around).
It's also not only delusional frauen. Jamie Fowler on WW, a bisexual man whom I consider the foremost Jay aficionado, just posted about it the other day.

When did Halfway attend the funeral? Because I just saw the hat/sewing machine episode today and have been keeping up with the show via YouTube.
Leaving Halfway’s peck-peck-peck kissing technique aside, his awkward politeness, hetero virginity and out-of-synch sex life with Whitney speaks volumes when compared and contrasted with his direct interactions with Ben. He texted him to meet him in a park for sex! His relative sexual ease with him way be natural or acquired through experience but it doesn’t matter.

Based on his scenes with Ben or Callum over the past weeks it looks like Jay might be the first to put two and two together.

EE missed a trick not having, and in fact being beaten to the punch on, an alt-right radicalisation storyline. It’s a very “now” issue and Walford is the right demographic. It could explored through someone obviously damaged like Stuart or even more effectively through an otherwise “good” character - as a lot rightwingers claim to not be opposed to actual skin colour but “non-British” values. It could be like when Peggy turned anti-HIV and homophobe as was later redeemed.
But as someone said upthread the current EE resurgence is because Kate Oates is focusing on drama and romance so perhaps it’s for the best.

He needs to lose about 20 lbs for his eyes to pop again. Halfgay would look better if he grew his hair down over his strange ears.

That's exactly what they're doing in the current Hollyoaks story, which has been building for the last six months and really kicked in last week.

This will be a drawn out storyline. So fucking typical... teasing us with that kiss only to let us wait weeks to see what happens next. This stupid stolen car business... I realize it's to draw them closer, but well... it's not really working. There is barely any news about them in the spoilers for the upcoming weeks. Not much "pride" in EastEnders, is there? Well... except for the opening of the gay bar today, that was nice I guess.

Is that what passes for a gay bar in London these days? Looked kinda tacky. And instead of ladies in showguirl outfits where are the hot shirtless bartenders?
Even when Sharon opened The Albert we got that hottie behind the bar named "Curtis" whom Johnny#1 approved of.

There's speculation on WW that Thomas Law may be reprising his role as Peter. I would welcome that because he always felt more like Peter to me than musclebound pinup Ben Hardy.
He did a revealing photoshoot a few years back while promoting Beautiful Thing. (On the right.) I think he's more built now.

I feel a bit sorry for Larries/Welp Troll types who have clearly started tuning in solely for the gay romance. They have to sit through tedium such as Dinah's funeral, Ollie's autism and the Spice Girls concert.

Kathy looks incredible for her age. And it seems off that Ben wouldn't be at her club on opening night to support her. Maybe he'll show up later.
What was that mess that Phil served for dinner? Reminded me of that time Ian made haggis.

I can kind of understand why she wouldn’t - women of that age who get pregnant have their hormones screaming out for a baby - but I’m more annoyed that Louise is keeping her baby. So tired of unemployed, uneducated, listless princesses not getting abortions.

Steven's death was so pointless. Kind of like Abi's. At least Ronnie and Roxy's deaths, mistakes though they were, gave us a few good episodes. The entire era of SOC/JY was a travesty.

Sharon is hoping that her baby is Keanu's. She'd dump Phil in a heartbeat, and trample Louise and her kid running back to Keanu like a bitch in heat if whistled and called her name.
Maybe Sharon and Denise should have a little chit chat.

The kid playing Dennis looks like a shithead who beats other kids up at school. He reminds me of that Australian kid who was tormenting a fat kid, and after weeks of harrassment the fat kid bodyslammed him. There's no depth there.
I didn't see EE during much of 2017/2018 due to a death in the family, so am I correct in assuming that Kathy's hawked necklace was acquired from that heist when Mick got shot? Would not have Ben and Halfway met then?

Ben's romance with Paul started off with lots of quite rough sex. Ben was always shoving him up against an open casket. This seems like the same. He is a genuinely angry, self loathing type.

From what I recall, there were no scenes where Ben and Callum could have met during their very brief time on the show together in January 2018.
Halfway showed up at the very end of the January 1st episode when The Big Heist started to go bad and Mick recognized him when the doors of the van were flung open. Even we didn't know who he was.
As for Ben, he was already out of Walford by the January 12th episode on his way to France.
In between those two weeks, there were only a couple of episodes wherein they both appeared, and I don't think their characters were ever in the same scene.
Halfwit was laying low at the pub with The Carters.
Meanwhile, Ben was already planning his great escape. His scenes during this time were primarily amounted to him commiserating with Jay over Abi's "death." .. Having a veiled goodbye-farewell with Phil. .. Gifting Karhy with the piece of jewelry and selling the rest. .. And things like seeing him prep to leave with the cash, then Mel showing up at the garage already sniffing around. .. Then, he was off.
