EASTEN­DERS

The Irish Mail on Sunday - TV Week - - YOUR MOVIE PLANNER -

It’s Shab­nam’s birth­day and she hopes the day will bring good news: a pro­mo­tion at the Minute Mart. Given she de­lib­er­ately da­m­ages stock, is rude to cus­tomers and cov­ered up for Denise’s steal­ing, she prob­a­bly shouldn’t hold her breath. Sure enough, in­stead of be­ing pro­moted she’s made re­dun­dant, but the up­side is she ends up seek­ing so­lace in the arms of the gor­geous Kush.

Her dal­liance with Kush reawak­ens old mem­o­ries, and by the end of the week Shab­nam has con­fessed a ter­ri­ble, dark se­cret to Stacey. A soap character with a dark se­cret? Get away!

Ian forges ahead with elab­o­rate plans for his rushed wed­ding to Jane, in­clud­ing a re­quest that all his grooms­men wear kilts in ‘the Beale tar­tan’. Ian in a kilt? Please don’t do that to us.

Max seems to have a whisky glass su­per­glued to his hands at the mo­ment, and it’ll be stay­ing firmly put for Emma’s fu­neral. Her fam­ily don’t want him there and Carol doesn’t un­der­stand him, send­ing Max into another drunken melt­down.

The in­ves­ti­ga­tion into Linda’s rape con­tin­ues, with Stacey giv­ing her state­ment to po­lice. As the news spreads, ten­sions are run­ning high in the Carter house­hold, so they do what they al­ways do in times of trou­ble... throw a karaoke night at the Queen Vic. By my reck­on­ing ev­ery karaoke night the Carters have ever staged has ended in dis­as­ter, and this one is no dif­fer­ent.

Angry he’s the sub­ject of so much gossip, Dean de­cides to gate­crash pro­ceed­ings (above) and, well, let’s just say he doesn’t get to belt out any tunes. Decco can’t help feel­ing put out when he learns Kerri-Ann has another date lined up with Garda Maguire, even though he has his own date lined up with Ha­ley (be­low right, played by Re­becca Grimes). When both of the cou­ples end up in Vino’s for their dates – not a lot of choice in Car­rigstown – Kerri-Ann is flus­tered to re­alise she has a pang of jeal­ousy when Ha­ley kisses Decco.

Renée feels her daugh­ter needs to know the truth about Christy’s death so she tells Far­rah that Max was with Christy when he died. The rev­e­la­tion leaves Far­rah dis­traught. Max is fu­ri­ous with Renée and, ever the gen­tle­man, threat­ens to cut Renée out of their lives for good. Renée be­gins to worry that she did the wrong thing. The sit­u­a­tion goes from bad to worse when Seán no­tices Far­rah’s up­set and Renée expl ex­plains what has hap­pened. Seán takes hi him­self off to the guards and it’s downhi hill from there for Max.

There’s a new locum doc­tor in Car­rig rigstown, Jim Caw­ley, who could do w with brush­ing up on his work­place etiqu quette. He leaves Ama strug­gling to ad adapt to his gruff.

Dolores tries to hide her shock when he her hair starts to fall out. In sol­i­dar­ity w with Dolores, Kerri-Ann goes on a m make-up free date with Frank. It doesn’t ha have the de­sired ef­fect when he en­quires if she is com­ing down with some­thing.
