Ballum - gay couple in love EastEnders

Yet again we've been paywalled.

Ben is fugging out big time and is looking more and more like Phil but we're getting plenty of tepid Ballum action as Bowden and the other one try to make their snogging sessions look convincing. They should take lessons from the Skam actors.

Will we ever see them in bed together? The most "daring" scene was them undressing each other while making out. We still haven't got a bed scene. I want to see them in bed together, post sex is fine by me. I realize it's a soap so they can't be too explicit. Emmerdale had Robron in bed together a lot. Seems like it should be possible for EastEnders too.

When Callum joins the force, they should have him meet a hot cop. He'd be the 'good' boyfriend in opposition to 'bad' boyfriend, Ben. Triangles are more interesting than domestic bliss (especially at this stage of the game).

Of course, we knew they faked Keanu's murder, but I WAS very nicely surprised when Linda got totally frustrated with the boys and just grabbed the gun and shot Keanu herself. Made me laugh out loud, literally.

But how did they expect Keanu to just show up at some hospital without his bullet wound being reported to the police? Recall, it wasn't that long ago when Mick got shot by Halfiwt during The Big Heist, and that was the very reason they gave as to why Mick couldn't go to the hospital, with them enlisting Mariam to perform the surgery at the Queen Vic.

by Anonymousreply 4801/07/2020

R29 it’s good that HW finally remembered Martin’s original characterisation. I was getting sick of pretending to believe that he was a Zen drippy heroic nice-guy through & through when that was never the point of him. In his original scripts he was written as a shouty, passionate person who lacked in both intellect & moral firmness what he made up in intensity & earnestness. He was always easy to coerce but even easier to trigger, and that’s what made him so perfect for a dramatic soap opera. I understand that like all men he’s matured some since his twenties, but people don’t change personalities so drasticallt as it seemed he had for a while. I’m glad that he’s been reset back, and hope that other legacy characters benefit from the same.

R3 Stacey is a harridan, but Sonia isn’t a lesbian and I don’t know why creative & fans keep insisting that she is. At best she’s a woman-leaning bisexual, though I’d sooner put her at Kinsey 2 or 3 given that she lived blissfully married to a man for almost a decade (and by all subtextual indication still has feelings for that same man to this day...)

I think this is the second time Sharon's cataloged Phil's sexual peccadilloes, since the big reveal. But neither time have they had Sharon mention Phil's hook-up with Denise, which resulted in a baby. That wasn't that long ago, and Sharon stood by Phil and whatever decision he wanted to make about the baby. I get the idea that they don't want to point to the glaring hypocrisy going on here, because you'd think this would be the first thing she'd bring up.

by Anonymousreply 13202/21/2020

I seem to recall Keanu noticing something was going on and he asked someone (Karen?) about it.

by Anonymousreply 13302/21/2020

R132 Keanu went to the booze cruise, because that's where Denny told him he was going when they'd had their encounter in the square. Once Sharon dumped Keanu, because of Denny, I assume Keanu went to the boat to try to change Dennis' mind about not wanting to go away ... as a way to get Sharon to change hers.

Phil went to the booze cruise, because after Billy knocked Phil out in Karen's flat, Billy and Karen were talking about secrets and their relationship, and Billy told Karen that he'd also just encountered not-dead Keanu, so that was another secret. Billy added that during this encounter, Keanu had mentioned that he was on his way to the boat. Right after that, Billy and Karen looked over and discovered that Phil had regained consciousness and left. The implication was that Phil had overheard what they'd said and took off to hunt down Keanu on the boat.

R136 When Keanu learned that Shirley couldn't find Callum where Keanu said he'd be, Keanu's assumption was that Callum had freed himself and gotten out on his own. I think that's the belief Keanu's working under, so in his mind there's no need to go back. .. Plus, Keanu probably wants to get out of Dodge ASAP, or face being arrested for Callum's kidnapping, as well as being party to the assault of the boat captain and all events which followed once the unmanned vessel crashed into the barge.

I see Bowden decided to take a page out of Harry Reid's penchant for wildly-exaggerated overacting and 'emoting' in that final scene today. By the time he put his head in the dish drainer and punched the colander, I was laughing.

Basically I’m looking to jump back into the show for a short while to restore some banal normalcy to existence, though I punched out of EE promising never to return about three years ago (around Summer/Autumn 2017) when my life got busy and I got angry because Johnny left the Square so anticlimactically.

Will Walford portray "the new normal" when production starts up again? I've read Corrie plans to have the virus exist in Weatherfield.

Kathy's Cafe and Walford East might have to be take-out and delivery only. The Prince Albert might have to close down as an after dark club and just do the daytime vegan cafe, take-out only.

It's a good thing Ruby is wealthy, otherwise her nightclub could go under.

And it's really not a great time to be thinking about getting back into the pub business, Phil. The real news has said pubs might be the last places to open. So many of them are failing anyway.

The Arches can pick up cars, repair them, and deliver them sanitized.

Nurse Sonia and cops Callum and Jack will have to be fitted with personal protective gear.

Perhaps The Slaters and The Panesars can merge their janitorial and extermination businesses and become Sanitizing Central.

Teacher Isaac might have to begin work a staggered shift.

The Laundromat can do fluff and fold service only. Ring the doorbell for drop-off and pick-up.

Peter's personal training business might actually boom, if people don't want to go to a regular gym. Of course, he'll have to practice appropriate social distancing. It's okay to be shirtless, though, right?

Not sure what to do about the street market. Will they be allowed? I could see them having one entrance and one exit with gatekeepers only allowing so many shoppers in at a time.

Oh, and maybe this could be an opportunity to kill a character or two off.

But they're predictably going to have Martin quarantined with horny Ruby, and even worse, waste Kush locked up in The Slater Cat House with all those old women and kids.

I just started watching on BritBox. I’ve been watching the PBS broadcast since the mid 80s. We’re 11 years behind BritBox. Poor Kush (what a cutie). I see Jean Slater is still a hand full.

Bump! That last scene with Queen Sharon and my boy Ian taking over the Queen Vic before that nasty ass Phil could was fucking awesome; one of the best Eastenders cliffhangers ever. I love the smile on Ian’s face. I’m always Team Ian when it comes to his rivalry with Phil.

After watching Part 2 of the classic episode that they ran last week of Syed and Amira's wedding, I had to hunt down Part 1 of the episode. They really should have ran both parts.

Part 1 has some of the best lines in the Christian vs. Zainab showdown over Syed.

Zainab pretending that she's thinking like Christian: "Oh I know, I'll seduce that pretty Pakistani boy! Oh, that'll be fun!"

Christian's retort to Zainab telling him that what he does makes her feel "sick": "Well, it didn't make him feel sick. .. That's right Zainab, me and your perfect son, we have done it all .. and he LOVED it!"

Zainab was such a miserable controlling bitch. Suki isn’t that much better. Why does EastEnders portray East Indian matriarchs so badly? What’s up with that?

by Anonymousreply 27107/16/2020

I hope one of the “reboot” changes is that the Dottie Threatens Ian shit is dropped and better yet, she returns to university and leaves the Arches. Also Peter Beale needs to be a lot less wet.

Zainab had her moments, though. Takes a bitch to slap another bitch down.

Jessie Wallace really is an utter trainwreck.

I can’t believe the article described her as joining the show as “Alfie Moon’s girlfriend.”

She better not infect Davood.

I don't miss the character at all. They should just pack up the kids and send Kat away.

All the more reason to FREE KUSH!

Did she at least go to a dermatologist and a dentist?

Finally got around to watching Scott Maslen (Jack) and Jake Wood (Max) on Secrets from the Square. Damn, Maslen is adorable. He does dance moves at the beginning of it and just the way he moves around the sets got my gaydar up big time (not to mention my dick). Maybe he’s gay and doesn’t know it yet?

"The Secrets from the Square" series will continue even after the show comes back (September 7).

I've been enjoying it far more than I thought I would.

Since Dooley says something about 2022, I might guess that it won't be every week, though.

Kate Oates says a “huge character” will return at Christmas.

I’m thinking it’s probably Janine.

by Anonymousreply 28208/27/2020

Maybe Christmas is when Ian returns, and he's put the 40 pounds back on.

So they're actually going to have Gray kill Chantelle, and they want viewers to know this in advance.

by Anonymousreply 28409/07/2020

No, R283, Christmas is when Ian departs. If he plays Santa this year he won’t need padding for his belly.

Disappointing ratings for the return last night, 10m less than Coronation Street.

Quarantine has done wonders for Vinny. Better haircut and scruff, instead of a full beard.

Sharon threatening Dotty with a broken bottle was beyond ludicrous.

I have a big crush on the guy who plays Gray. After he kills Chantelle, he has to be off the canvas soon--no redemption. Sigh.

by Anonymousreply 28909/09/2020

R289 No redemption. But I'm thinking they might extend Gray's run by scripting something with starstruck-lovesick, Whitney, who would, of course, get sucked into becoming Gray's next target. She knows how to pick 'em.

He might even knock her up. Better than knocking her down, I guess.

Vinny has gone from a 2 to a solid 7.

Can anyone tell thus far which storylines/subplots have been altered since lockdown, if any? I am guessing it is taking place in "real time"? Please tell me that Dottie has Covid.

Tina had Covid according to the actress who plays her.

Poor kid. Albert-Albie is just as bad.

She also apparently lives within walking distance of where the show films and has been all her life.

Either Suki or that toy he was obsessed with will do him in.

by Anonymousreply 31515 hours ago

Y’all leave Karen the fuck alone. I think Chantelle’s father and super hottie Kheerat will join forces and bring Gray down. Suki’s a BITCH! Nobody’s got a good EastEnders slap across the face in awhile. Suki needs a pop in the mouth. Can’t stand her!
