Panic for Michelle and Jane Eastenders
Jane has survived the restaurant fire…but will Max let her stay alive?
Story So far
Jane Beale was left for dead in a burning Beale’s restaurant by Max Branning, after she’d worked out his revenge plot.
Confessing he was going after everyone who framed him for Lucy Beale’s murder, Max escaped the blaze – leaving Jane to sizzle just like one of Ian’s burgers…
Except she survived Max’s murder attempt and has been in a coma for weeks.
Terrified she’ll wake up and blow the whistle on his wicked plan, Max has already tried to finish Mrs Beale off by twisting her oxygen tube.
Since that was scuppered at the last minute, Max has been dreading the moment Jane opens her eyes…
Doctors decide the time has come to remove Jane’s breathing tube, and while Ian prays his missus will wake and start talking, Max is hoping for the complete opposite!
‘The tube is taken away and as Ian and Sharon leave the room, Max lurks,’ teases our Eastenders source.
‘With Ian needed elsewhere in the Square, Max offers to stay with Jane,
who wakes to find herself alone with Max,’ continues our spy. ‘Is Jane safe?’
Alone with the man who tried to kill her, who’d stop at nothing to keep her quiet? ‘Safe’ doesn’t come to mind!
As the fire took hold in the restaurant all those weeks ago, terrified Jane told Max he wasn’t a murderer and begged him to help her – seconds before he left her to burn!
Murderous mad Max crossed a line when he decided to let Jane perish, and is capable of anything.
But Mrs Beale has been unconscious for weeks – so she might not even remember what happened.
What if she awoke with no memory of Max’s mischief – or she pretended not to just to protect herself?
And the family now know Steven Beale lied about his tumour, but Jane could reveal the whole story – including Max’s involvement.
That’s if she doesn’t have amnesia. Or if Max doesn’t smother her with a pillow…
Is Jane in danger when she wakes up to find Max looming over her? How much could Jane tell Ian and Sharon about the fire – and Max?
