I feel like Linda’s gonna end up killing Aiden.
I’m glad they retconned that, I enjoyed those scenes.

Apparently Aiden’s leaving soon so hopefully they kill him. I’d love it to be in the same style as Dirty Den’s death but with Linda, Shirley and Tracey.

Haven’t seen her for a while. Maybe her and Halfwit have ran off together.

When Bernadette Taylor is amongst your most-featured characters, you know it's a sinking ship.

Can we just get rid of Aidan already :roll: it feels like the show has been on pause since Christmas.

I'm not sure if I missed a few episodes... did "Halfway" get an exit? Are we just to forget all about Woody as well? What happened to the girl who gave birth?

Not that I care but it feels like characters are pushed down our throats for a week then never mentioned again.

We still don't even know what happened to Luke Browning or even if Wilmott-Brown lived.

Lauren's final scenes the other week were crap and now we don't even know what's happened to the baby - surely Tanya would fight tooth and nail to stop Max bringing her up?

Actually... whatever happened to old Derek?!

It’s all laughable.

The fact that Lauren and Tanya are willing to leave the baby with that psychopath and murderer is unfathomable.

This thread is so much more entertaining than the show :lol: I've just caught up on about 8 episodes I was behind on and now think there's 4 hours I'll never get back :lol:

The only good thing that's happened is Denise & Kim's reveal, that did make me happy. Nobody can be enjoying the Aiden storyline, it's just more crap straight after the Wilmott Brown crap that just finished. Like every other Carter story it's just backwards and forwards, one minute they want a hitman, then they don't, then they do...and where were they getting the money to pay for it??

Whitney has a long line of men that have disappeared into the distance, but not to worry, there's be someone else for her to fall madly in love with soon enough.

Stacey's cousin was awful, the chess story is just crap, who ever gives the green light to these sort of stories that have littered Eastenders along the years?

I wish that bloody bus came back and reversed over Ted, Joy, Mick, Honey, Keanu, Tiffany, Jack and Masood. And this time don't let Max Branning single handedly lift the thing up.

There is actually still such a strong cast: Martin, Sharon, Shirley, Kathy, Sonia, Stacey (pre-Christmas), Bex, Tina, Dot (if she's still there), even Karen, but they just seem to have some really crap writers, the show is really stuck in a rut.

***I forgot to add can they all stop calling each other "melt", and stop trying to shoehorn the international womens day stuff into the show.

I'd get rid of Mick too, he's completely had his day and most of his lines are really cringe. Linda just spends all her time furrowing her brow and looking pensive behind the bar. Any fun the Carters had in them when they arrived has long gone.

I want the Carters to sell the Vic, Kat to return with a brand new man, the three kids and buy it up. Big Mo and Jean could be on the staff but move in with Stacey.

Apparently Big Mo comes back and tells Stacey that Kat is dead.

I think Mick is here to stay to be honest - I’m more concerned about Phil... he’s lost his balls and doesn’t seem to realise.

But I agree that the Carters need revitalising somehow. Losing their 3 kids so early on is rediculous tbh - lots of potential but never used. They should definitely bring back Lee (with wife and baby), and hopefully Johnny will have a forever head in a year or two.

In the meantime, Shirley needs a good kick and Mick and Linda need to get on with being the fun loved up couple they were. Linda - especially Linda - had/has bags of potential to be an EE legend imo. She’s by far the most interesting Carter.

Kat in The Vic is always welcome, but I quite like the idea of Kat in the E20 with Stacey... and Jean doing the babysitting. Stacey needs to remember fun is more than just shagging the ginger ferret.

Well I’m glad Shirley realised Phil traded in his balls for a new liver. I love Phil and Sharon together, but Phil and Shirley were great together too.

Sharon asking Phil “do I get to stay?” shows how much of a doormat she’s turned into.

She saved herself saying she was Den and Angie’s daughter though. I’m so bored of her forgetting that.

She can do better than lumbering herself with Mr Potatohead.

I’m so glad, he’s a terrible character. But it was a terrible exit, I was hoping he’d die.

Did you see the Kat trailer? Looks decent enough.

I loved the Kat trailer. But I don’t understand why Karen was dressed as Kat toasting her? I mean, okay, free booze, but still.

I love Kat. Bringing her back without Alfie is a great move imo. Shane Ritchie said originally he wanted time off, but his facade has slipped a few times over the last week or two, saying he’d love to go back if asked :lol:

He’ll go back when he’s desperate for money again. He always does. It’s a shame cos Alfie is such a dull character.
