There are tense scenes between Bobby Beale (Clay Milner Russell) and Max Branning (Jake Wood) tonight in EastEnders – as Bobby suddenly brings up the death of his sister Lucy Beale (Hetti Bywater).
A long running story saw Bobby murder his sister in temper with a music box – and Jane Beale (Laurie Brett) helped him to cover it up by dumping the body at Walford Common. The Beales conspired to ensure that Max went down to the crime and it left Max understandably bitter.
Recently, now that time has passed and Max can see how traumatised Bobby still is, he has taken him under his wing and has been extremely understanding of him. That looks set tonight as, continually plagued by memories of the sister he killed, Bobby asks a stunned Max if he loved her.
Max is taken aback by the sudden mention and he lashes out at Bobby, telling him that he has no right to ask such a thing given that he was the one who killed her. However, he eventually finds himself opening up to Bobby about the affair and how it came about – but will it help Bobby come to terms with the harrowing memories that are upsetting him.
Bobby is avoiding going home, both to avoid the questioning from Ian (Adam Woodyatt) over his decision to convert to Islam and also to keep away from the room where his life changed forever – and Lucy lost hers.
But can Bobby cope with the truths he hears from Max – and can he and Ian finally start to build bridges? Or is Bobby only set to find himself feeling more alone and confused than ever?
And how will Max feel about having his own dark memories about Lucy resurfaced?
EastEnders continues on Friday 16th August at 8pm on BBC One.
