‘EastEnders’ viewers saw Louise Mitchell hit with Abi Branning with a shock ultimatum in Thursday’s episode (7 April).
The newcomer threatened Abi, telling her that if she doesn’t leave Walford with Ben Mitchell, she’ll reveal the truth about her fake pregnancy and miscarriage.
However, Abi proved that she’s not one to be messed with, and hit Louise with some harsh, home truths. But what does this mean for the Mitchell family?
Tilly Keeper, who plays Louise, has opened up about that huge row, and Abi’s response to her character’s ultimatum.
Speaking to Huffington Post UK, she says: “I think Louise is a harsh person anyway and she half-deserved those words, but at the same time, they do hit home for Louise.
“She just wants to be wanted and Abi has kind of pin-pointed that.
“But I think that probably added fuel to the fire for Louise, fuelling her hatred for Abi!”
The actress goes on to discuss her character’s tumultuous family relationships, admitting that Louise may have bitten off more than she can chew in trying to fix Phil Mitchell.
“I think she likes to think she can handle Phil, but at the same time, she’s only a 14-year-old girl,” she explains.
“But as we’ve seen, she managed to convince Phil to go back into AA meetings, and I think he’s got a soft spot, and is weak for Louise, so I think she can probably help him a little bit but she needs back-up.”
As it stands now, the power is still in Louise’s hands, as thanks to Aunt Babe, she knows the truth about Abi’s fake pregnancy.
However, Abi was pretty insistent that she could make Ben believe that Louise is lying, if she reveals the truth. Will Louise tell her brother everything anyway?
Judging from spoiler snaps that have been revealed, that certainly seems to what happens, but viewers will have to wait to see if Louise force her brother out of the Square.
Earlier this week, Tilly hinted that we will see Louise's softer side, stating: “I think you’ll see a more vulnerable and younger side to Louise, because she’s putting on a grown-up front."
