I am hoping it's going to come out the real reason Ben wants to fleece his dad and is acting like a nut job as it's a complete character change to others that have played the role, so I hope it gets explained.

I already think Phil knows about Sharon and Keanu. I reckon that was a reason to send him to Spain, I think Phil played a role in Keanu getting battered and at the moment he's biding his time with the whole keep your friends close and your enemies closer motto.

Glad that Rob Kazinsky is coming back for a short period as Sean Slater is a great character. He's been successful in Hollywood and I read he's got 5 movies out this year and had a small window of free time in his schedule to come back to his roots that you should never forget. Top guy for doing that.

Happy to see Lola back and it gives Jay more to do as he's severely underused on the soap.

Louise looked the part bound and gagged in the container Heart LOL

Glad to see Stuart back last night after a good break. He's been wrote really well from being a crazy guy to still being one but also coming across as someone who's never really been shown love by family or friends or women. He's calmed down now he's more homely.

Glad that Mick and Max are on extended breaks. The women in the cast always get big periods of time off to have a kid (Kim, Linda etc) or because of their age (Dot). So it makes a change the other way round.

It's funny Rob Kazinsky was ready to turn his back on acting as he didn't like being in the limelight but almost by accident he got offered some good roles and ended up doing well for himself in Hollywood, so as you say good for him for not forgetting where he came from and for making the time to give the viewers a bit more Sean Slater. 

Louise played being bound and gagged to perfection, Oscar worthy performance Tongue Bex has developed into a lovely young lady as well Wink 

You may be right about Phil already knowing about Keanu, but seems a bit strange he would push Keanu towards his daughter so much, think its more likely the sinister Ben finds out and uses it to his advantage.

I would like to think I would be like Rob Kazinsky. Do loads of different roles, but when you've a spare few weeks or months in your schedule, go back to what first got you noticed and work once more with your TV family. I imagine Jean being like a second mum to him behind the scenes.

Eastenders hasn't ever been known for being full of lookers. It's hardly Neighbours/Hollyoaks standard and never has been. But with Louise she's the hottest in the show. Distracting for different reasons than Ruby with her vaneers LOL

Bex storyline with Kush is good. Surely you wouldn't bang your best mates daughter LOL

Mitch is great for comedy and I hope when Mick is back we see more of their double act.

I enjoyed the Mitch and Mick double act as well, both good for comedy value. 

The Eastenders filming schedule is said to be gruelling, often 15 hour days at least 5 days per week, you can understand why there is such a revolving door with the cast and why popular cast members like Mick and Max negotiate extended breaks on a regular basis, it's a pain for producers as seeing folk who are portrayed as working class Londoners constantly talking extremely long holidays and so forth isn't particularly realistic, but then again neither is when cast members leave and just get in their car and drive off with no home or job to go to. 

Makes you wonder why producers don't make certain cast members the focal point for a month or so then switch to different people the following month to allow the actors to work like a month on month off or something along those lines.

Looks like he might only be back next week, but he leaves the window open to return in the future and it shows how well he's done in the decade away from the show.

Jake Wood made it known he was having a three month break so when Rainie expected him back home I knew he wasn't returning. I would expect him back next month on screen.

Danny Dyer they try and keep sweet by letting him do outside interests like his stage play and documentary series.

I wouldn't be at all surprised if Danny Dyer is announced as leaving in the not too distant future. Hes proved to be a popular TV personality and a reality show surrounding his family has been rumoured for a while. Being on Eastenders has raised his profile and he must be getting other work offers so I think it's a matter of time. 

Rob Kazinsky seems to have carved out a pretty lucrative career in the US mostly of supporting movie roles and some TV work, hes done pretty well for himself considering he went out there as a unknown. Maybe he'll agree to a Ross Kemp type role in Eastenders where he'll slot back in for a short stint when his schedule allows and when he can be figured into a big storyline.

Gillian Wright a while back was on Lorraine explaining she didn't shave her head for real because it didn't sit right with her as she knows people who's had cancer and because of the Rob Kazinsky schedule to fit in his cameo, his scenes weren't filmed in order so it would have been hard........


Can't wait for Sharon to find out she's pregnant. Two new Mitchell children thanks to Keanu who in a short space of time will be making his boss a step dad and a grandad LOL

Kara Leah Fernandes won two soap awards at ten years old. She's been great and is a super little actress.

Who'd have thought Poppy wouldn't believe Billy.....In the day and age of camera phones Billy still doesn't think to film/snap something he sees that would be of interest to back up his words with proof.

Has made me laugh how over the past few weeks we have seen not one but now two storylines that will see people have large sums of cash stolen from them due to keeping it hidden under their mattress. Sometimes EastEnders is so behind the times do people really still keep thousands of pounds in cash hidden in their homes in 2019 when there are so many safer electronic options?? Also found it a bit ridiculous that so called businessman Jack Branning would be careless enough to leave all his online banking info and his bank card just sitting next to his laptop like a invitation for someone to fleece him of all his cash.
Still makes me chuckle how people run around all the local businesses and market stalls in the square begging for a job rather than getting on their smartphone and looking on a job app like Indeed like the rest of the world do.

I enjoyed the brief return of Sean Slater, a touching storyline that gave Sean's story a bit of closure while still leaving the door open for him to return down the line. Rob Kazinsky is a good actor and I like the Sean character, I hope we see him again.

I'm enjoying the new Ben Mitchell even if it is something of a ridiculous transformation from the previous Bens. He's gone from the meek and mild Ben who enjoyed dancing and musicals to dark and psychotic Ben who seems to be taking inspiration from Ronnie Kray for his character. I guess its possible that prison time, years of mental and sometimes physical abuse from his Dad, the death of Paul and thinking his Mum was dead for years would all screw you up a little.

It been good getting a bit more background on the very messed up Highway family. Stuart seems to have gone from tortured kidnapper and possible murderer to everyones guardian angel.

The quality of ladies in the show has risen as of late, Habiba and her sister are both very easy on the eye, as are Louise and Whitney.

Things are surely set to impload with Keanu possibly the father of Sharon's baby, two Mitchell kids in the space of a few weeks that's some pretty impressive work by Keanu It's hard to imagine how he could stay in Albert Square should it be revealed he even had a affair with Sharon let alone got her pregnant.

Surprised they are doing a pro Muslim storyline with Bobby Beale turning to Islam to be a good boy. When he was reading about the day of judgement I thought he'd been brainwashed in prison.

Don't like Gray being a bad lad. The go to storyline for scriptwriters is to make guys twats.

Mick: Prison.
Max: Adultry.
Gray: Woman beater.
Keegan: Drugs.
Mitch: Shit husband/father.
Stuart: Nutcase.
Kush: Got the wife of his best mate pregnant.
Phil: Prison.
Ben: Prison.
Keanu: Criminal activity.

Pretty much only Jack, Martin, Patrick and Ian are decent enough gents.
