Mel’s In THE club!

There’s Trou­ble when Mel re­opens wal­ford’s Most dan­ger­ous night spot!

Soaplife - - The Week In Eastenders -

STORY So far

Mel Owen slipped straight back into the swing of Wal­ford life with a spot of theft, some fam­ily trauma and a close en­counter with the Mitchells. It’s as if she never went away!

The hard-bit­ten blonde and her testy teenage son, Hunter, are try­ing to build a new life in Mrs Owen’s old stomp­ing ground. But as she pre­pares to re­open the night­club where her dead hus­band, Steve, com­mit­ted mur­der, can she lay the ghosts of the past to rest?

Or will some­one in Al­bert Square help her look to the fu­ture?

THIS Week

Pre­par­ing to re­launch the nightspot in part­ner­ship with Sharon Mitchell, Mel is con­cerned when the bur­glar alarm keeps go­ing off and she in­ves­ti­gates.

With Jack Bran­ning’s help (could he make it any more ob­vi­ous how much he fan­cies her?!), they re­alise some­one’s bro­ken in and they’re not alone. But who can’t wait to sam­ple the club’s cock­tail menu ahead of the grand open­ing?

Later on, hor­monal Hunter is put out when Jack mus­cles in on his mum’s prepa­ra­tions and he sets about sab­o­tag­ing open­ing night, which is a sig­nif­i­cant day for the Owens for other rea­sons.

‘Know­ing it’s the an­niver­sary of Steve’s death, Jack reaches out to Hunter,’ re­veals our East­end­ers source. ‘Mel’s touched, but Hunter wants Jack out of his mum’s life! As they un­veil the club’s new sign, Mel is fum­ing to see what Hunter has done…’

WHAT next?

What has naughty Hunter been up to? Since dis­cov­er­ing the truth about his mur­der­ing gang­ster fa­ther, the boy has been in bits. With the club be­ing the scene of Steve’s big­gest crime, does Hunter want to scup­per the plan of set­ting up a busi­ness there?

Or is this all about his dis­ap­proval of Jack get­ting in­volved with his mum?

We love the idea of the club be­ing re­opened. Does any­one else still miss the R&R?! And with Mel at the helm, we pre­dict lots of drama.

Although with Billy Mitchell as bouncer (Mel must be des­per­ate on the se­cu­rity front!), how long be­fore there’s mur­der on the dance floor once again?
