I loved that episode! So Aiden is stealing from his ex-wife, and Mickey from Shameless is the grass who hold Aiden what he could get his hands on.

I love the actress who plays his ex - the actress is amazing in Redrock. Clearly she phoned
Spoiler:
Mel
who I thought would be returning in this episode.

Masood’s Aunt is going to be great - she has a real matriarch feel, and the way her husband talks about her :lol:

Who is Keira? Who is Halfway? Nothing has been properly explained. When the police ran away because a random blonde woman told them a few blatant lies I was howling!

Yes, it definitely seems that you-know-who is linked to the Maguires.

I do love the new Ahmeds, they have a lot of warmth about them.

Keira is Aiden’s ex wife and Halfway was friends with Lee and they haven’t seen him in a decade. Keira told the policeman that they had no evidence of a crime, no guns and that the van was hers. She might have said something about staging a woman, but Mother was talking...

It’s only the second episode of the year and we already have 4 new characters. The show needed an injection of new blood and thus far I’m happy.

How great would it have been if they didn’t reveal that Mel was returning?

Also, I love the reference to Abi’s gerbil funeral singing Bright Eyes. I can’t find the clip on YouTube but someone’s posted it in the PopJustice EE thread and it’s hilarious.

See, Abi always delivered :lol:

I see why Lauren survived, but I think they missed a trick not having both Lauren and Abi falling off the roof in front of Max’s eyes and not using that as motive to make him jump himself. Abi and Lauren could then have both survived and moved away, and Max would have found a fitting conclusion.

If it had been me, I think I’d have jumped as soon as I saw my daughters fall to their (presumed) deaths simply so I didn’t have to deal with it.

Oh, and is Max not having a breakdown then? The time to section him seems to have passed :-?

Annoyingly it looks like they're going to redeem Max and he's here to stay!

It can work and in fairness it would be a loss to lose such a great actor from the show. But with Abi and Lauren leaving I don’t see how he can get true redemption. I don’t really see him needing redemption for the revenge plot - revenge was needed - but Karmel needs to see a comeuppance... if Abu dying isn’t big enough.

I’ll probably have less hatred for him in a few months to be honest. Maybe they need to give him a 6 month break. I mean we all hated on Jane for dumping Lucy in the woods but two years later, beaten by a hockey stick and paralysis made us empathise with her more.

I guess Kush's punch is Carmel's "revenge".

I love how we're all most invested in EE when it's at its worst :lol:

Didn’t see that coming. :roll: It was so predictable and cheesy. Keanu’s first ever duff duff I believe.

Why are Ted and Joyce still there?

No, Kush! In the Vic, before Christmas!

That body :lol:

I don't see Ted and Joyce staying beyond the end of their contract. Les and Pam were so much better, I would love them to come back.

Instead of Les and Pam, we should get Christine an Pam. They need to bring Yolande back, Patrick needs something to do.

Liking the new Masood clan hopefully more to explore there.

Also is Hannah from S Club 7 reappearing again as a Karen’s sister or was that just a brief role.

Disappointed with the New Yesrs episode was hoping for a shock or surprise death

Tuesdays episode was ridiculous, it was more like one of Danny Dyer's straight to video movies in places, but I really like Masood's Auntie & Uncle, I think they'll bring a lot of fun to the show.

Why didn’t Phil just run like everyone else? I know it’s be harder for him.

I reckon Aiden’s already swindled the money probably.

Wait, so where is everybody now who was involved in the heist? Still running? :lol:

Tiff's back! I always forget how radically different she looks.

I feel like this will tie in with Ben’s exit somehow.

I think Shirley is an ubercow to Whitney.

Whitney’s a cow. In Shirley’s eyes she ruined her grandson and almost destroyed the marriage of her son and daughter in law. I’d be a bitch to her too :lol:

Whitney should have left years ago with Bianca in fairness. She brings nothing to the show.

Whitney honestly needs to go, she's so irrelevant now. If they've brought Tiff back just to keep Whitney that's ridiculous. They should've given her a happy ending and let her and Woody go off together. Has he gone for good?

Is this new Poppadoppalous Jr. a regular?

I don’t really like Tiffany, she was endearing as a kid but now she just seems like all the other gobby young teens. Unless this is a return plot for Bianca, then I’m not really invested in the family.

Mel's first comeback scene was a bit odd. It should've been with Phil or Ian, not Ben.
