EASTEN­DERS

The Irish Mail on Sunday - TV Week - - SOAP WATCH -

Fi­nally, the con­tents of Lucy’s phone are e re­vealed and, in­evitably, the mean­ing of life isn’t hid­den among the texts. There is,s, how­ever, a mes­sage that sends shock­waves es through the Beale house­hold.

There’s another shock for the Beale­ses when Peter re­turns and vis­its Max to ask k for Lau­ren’s hand in mar­riage. I didn’t seee that one com­ing. Rigor mor­tis shows more re life than a loved-up Lau­ren, so it’s no surr- prise Max is stunned. Peter’s love and support, how­ever, wins him over, but why, when Peter pops the ques­tion, does Ian run out of the house? Later, Lau­ren has a heartto-heart with Max while she con­sid­ers her an­swer. Oh, bril­liant. Max is just the per­son to ask about re­la­tion­ships – a man who can’t visit his own bath­room with­out hav­ing an af­fair en route.

Max has big­ger re­la­tion­ship is­sues with his younger daugh­ter Abi, when he dis­cov­ers she’s dat­ing Ben. That’s right: the gay, hard-of-hear­ing killer who may have been in­volved in Lucy’s death. Those Bran­nings can cer­tainly pick ’em.

The mys­tery sur­round­ing Sonia’s dis­ap­pear­ance is solved and her con­fes­sion re­sults in a bit of a spark be­tween her and Tina (although sadly not enough to see ei­ther woman elec­tro­cuted). Re­veal­ing her se­cret to the as­sem­bled crowd in the pub (why does ev­ery­one al­ways feel the need to do that?), Sonia col­lapses ( left), and Load­aTosh is none too pleased to dis­cover that she and Tina shared the big se­cret (don’t hold your breath; it’s not ex­actly MI6 stuff).

COM­PLI­CATED LOVE LAND

Ja­nine Butcher can’t stand the thought of Peggy Mitchell sell­ing The Vic and mov­ing to the Al­garve with dad Frank. So Ja­nine (above, with her fa­ther) pre­tends she’s been beaten up, and it works – the pair put the move on hold.
