Will Jane be killed? Where are Stacey & Phil? When will Linda fess up? Who gets shot by Ted?

THERE’S A DEATH ON THE SQUARE – BUT IS THE CAUSE ACCIDENTAL OR DELIBERATE…?

Inside Soap - - NEWS -

What could pos­si­bly be more harm­less than a neigh­bour­hood gar­den fes­ti­val? Cer­tainly, the res­i­dents of Al­bert Square feel no rea­son to worry as they gather to cel­e­brate Walford In Bloom. But lit­tle do they re­alise that a ter­ri­ble chain of events will soon lead to the grisly death of one of their friends…

The day dawns bright while Walford’s most com­mu­ni­ty­minded sur­vey the re­sult of their green-fin­gered labours – and the Square has never looked more beau­ti­ful! The trou­ble is, it’s just a fa­cade…

Re­sent­ment is sim­mer­ing, as a group of an­gry pro­test­ers heckle the vis­it­ing mayor, de­ter­mined to put a stop to the planned ‘Halfway House’ hos­tel. A riot breaks out, but the po­lice don’t have time to in­ter­cede be­fore work on an ex­posed gas main is dis­rupted – with tragic con­se­quences!

A fire­ball rips through Al­bert Square, throw­ing bod­ies into the air and caus­ing the crowd to stam­pede in panic. But who has been in­jured – or worse?

Stacey is miss­ing, and the Mitchells are deeply wor­ried when they re­alise that Phil was stand­ing near the blast. Mean­while, across the Square, un­sta­ble Ted reaches for his gun – and soon, a shot is fired!

Else­where, des­per­ate

Steven Beale re­alises that he may have found his chance to si­lence in­ter­fer­ing Jane – and in the most per­ma­nent way…

Against a back­drop of chaos and carnage, Steven’s worst night­mare un­folds this week – as Jane threat­ens to tell Lau­ren and Ian that his cancer story is a sick lie!

How­ever, after Jane learns that Max is part of the de­cep­tion – and that he’s se­cretly plot­ting to wreak a ter­ri­ble re­venge on the Square – her life is placed in deadly dan­ger when Max or­ders Steven to si­lence her for good…

“Des­per­ate times call for des­per­ate mea­sures,” in­sists our Eas­ten­ders spy. “Jane is threat­en­ing to undo months of Max’s wicked plot­ting – and don’t for­get that he’s do­ing the bid­ding of some very ruth­less peo­ple. Mean­while, Steven has been pushed to the point of no re­turn, and is left with very lit­tle choice but to do what Max tells him.”

The fuse is lit after Steven confesses to Max that Jane has rum­bled the truth about his ‘ill­ness’, and begs him for help. Mean­while, Jane is slowly piec­ing to­gether the jig­saw of Steven’s in­volve­ment with Max, and sets about con­fronting Walford’s mas­ter ma­nip­u­la­tor at the restau­rant.

“Ian and Jane have al­ways strug­gled with the no­tion that Max was happy to for­give and for­get, given that he was wrong­fully sent to jail for their daugh­ter Lucy’s mur­der,” our source re­minds us. “Of course, he was never go­ing to let sleep­ing dogs lie, and once Jane re­alises what he’s been plot­ting, ev­ery­thing sud­denly falls into place.”

Mean­while, all hell breaks loose when the gas explosion rips through the Square.

The dis­as­ter buys Max some time, but he pan­ics and puts pres­sure on Steven to sort out their prob­lem with Jane once and for all.

As Steven and Jane face off in the mother of all show­downs at Beales, the des­per­ate fella lashes out be­fore tak­ing a match to the build­ing. Will he leave Jane to per­ish? Or could this be the end of Steven?
