TRAD­ING BLOWS

It’s hardly the head­line of the cen­tury, but when ru­mours spread that the mar­ket is be­ing moved, stall­hold­ers con­front Carmel, who ex­plains that it’s in the early stages. Still, it’s good to see that every­one is stirred to ac­tion. Usu­ally, there’s so lit­tle move­ment in the mar­ket, the sales­peo­ple ap­pear to be in an ad­vanced stage of rigor mor­tis. But Martin (above, with Kush) is fu­ri­ous and goes on strike. Re­turn­ing, he comes to blows fol­low­ing an ar­gu­ment with Stacey. Well, that was al­ways on the cards; she must be ex­hausted af­ter man­ag­ing to ex­ca­vate the oc­ca­sional smile over Christ­mas.

There’s also con­flict between Whit­ney and Lee, when the lat­ter re­fuses to cel­e­brate af­ter hear­ing about Ryan’s en­gage­ment. This leads Whit­ney to con­fide in Mick – again. Quite why any­one turns to him as the fount of all wis­dom is noth­ing short of in­san­ity.

Now, just in case you thought things had gone a bit too calm, dis­as­ter strikes, and the Square is thrown into chaos. In true East End fash­ion, the res­i­dents rally round, but soon re­alise that the sit­u­a­tion might be worse than they pre­vi­ously thought.
