We were promised more Carter family drama ahead of ‘EastEnders’ live week, and that’s exactly what we’re going to get in tonight’s (Thursday 19 February) hour-long special.
After secretly returning to Walford in last night’s show, Dean decides to get revenge on his family, and goes to the Queen Vic with a lighter and petrol.
However when Nancy smells petrol, as Dean pours it on the barrels, she goes to investigate and is taken hostage by her uncle.
Dean clearly hasn’t thought his plan through though - has he forgotten that Mick Carter is his brother, and Nancy’s dad?
Mick doesn’t hesitate, and quickly acts to save his family - but how far will he go?
Tonight’s show will also see Lucy Beale’s killer unmasked, and as with the week’s previous episodes, there will also be live elements.
So far, live week has run relatively smoothly, and while actress Jo Joyner, who plays Tanya Branning, fluffed her lines, the cast are determined to laugh it off.
Jake Wood, who stars as Max Branning, also caused confusion when viewers couldn’t tell whether his character told Abi, “she [Lauren] knows you killed Lucy” or “who killed Lucy”.
