Eastenders...

(230 Posts)

Just wondering who was looking after all the kids when Christian and Syed had their first dance. they put their daughter to bed then went out... hardly good parenting. Amy and kamil went missing too

WarmAppleCrumbleAndIceCream Sun 21-Oct-12 11:14:22

Well, it won't have been a paid babysitter cos they couldn't afford it.

SleeveOfWizard Sun 21-Oct-12 16:59:25

Who went off in the taxi?

Zainab left masood...again

whatkungfuthat Mon 22-Oct-12 20:29:17

Why is Phil Mitchell so obsessed with being the child catcher?

dirtymonkey Mon 22-Oct-12 21:11:24

I looked on Digital Spy the other night for the same answer with no luck. Things like this bug me too also where is Amira?

Loobylou222 Mon 22-Oct-12 21:26:27

And where was their dd when they were in Paris for the weekend? All the characters seem to palm their dcs off to random people!

BeingBooyhoo Mon 22-Oct-12 21:35:34

why did zainab leave masood?

Loobylou222 Mon 22-Oct-12 22:04:50

I think masons kicked her out?

Masood asked her to leave but last night he said she would be back so i dont know. I think phil is going to try and do a better job with lexi than he did with ben or at least his brain is telling him so

Mrsjay Tue 23-Oct-12 15:07:09

s going to try and do a better job with lexi than he did with ben or at least his brain is telling him so

I cant believe social services are maybe going to give phil Mitchel PHIL MITCHELLshock a child after the rubbish job he did of ben oh and he also kidnapped Louise twice , he has been in prison a few times yet Lola didn't do some dishes and ran out of nappies Bizarre , ( yes I know it is Isn't real )

BeingBooyhoo Tue 23-Oct-12 15:25:58

i missed what zainab did to get kicked out. what was her crime? and what was the money AJ found last night in Tamwar's savings box?

Mrsjay Tue 23-Oct-12 15:28:04

She gave Money to sayed all their savings she was supposed to be saving the child benefit from tamwar and kamil , I didn't see last nights but the agi bagee had the baliffs in on friday , masood was raging with her,

whatkungfuthat Tue 23-Oct-12 15:44:09

Does anyone else know about the money in tin though?

BeingBooyhoo Tue 23-Oct-12 15:46:02

ah, thanks mrsjay, i didn't realise she had told masood she'd done it.

Mrsjay Tue 23-Oct-12 15:48:51

OH AJ the brother found the bank book masood was on the phone ranting to the bank making inappropriate pakinstan call centre jibes was amusing he said I know your name is not dave grin

YouOldSlag Tue 23-Oct-12 15:49:04

Zainab took Tamwar's college fund and Kamil's future money and gave it Syed who had cocked up again. Masood was still trying to trust her again after she shacked up with Dr Evil last year and this proved she could still lie to him about major stuff. He'd had enough.

But God he's attractive when he's angry!

Mrsjay Tue 23-Oct-12 15:50:11

But God he's attractive when he's angry!

He so is he goes all GRR and manly <simper>

YouOldSlag Tue 23-Oct-12 15:54:00

If he glowered at me like that I'd undo all my buttons!

Mrsjay Tue 23-Oct-12 15:55:45

If he glowered at me like that I'd undo all my buttons!

you are so easy !!

YouOldSlag Tue 23-Oct-12 15:56:47

Tee hee Mrs Jay, and I've only got three buttons done up! I'm a right slag.

Mrsjay Tue 23-Oct-12 15:59:13

He is just lovely though I think EVErybody HAS A MASOOD CRUSH, the actor was on the one show when all the Dr evil stuff was going on, Alex jones almost slid off her seat grin

syeed gave zainab some of the money back as massood wanted to buy syeed and christian a honeymoon.

YouOldSlag Tue 23-Oct-12 16:01:21

Yes but he is still bad and wrong and weaselly despite having puppy dog eyes (Syed now, not his sexy Dad)

syed just bugs me anyway he whines

ViviPru Tue 23-Oct-12 17:46:55

I call Syed The Weasel. Weaselly little weasel.

YouOldSlag Tue 23-Oct-12 17:57:51

I think he had a bloody cheek to go on honeymoon after bankrupting his family!

hattymattie Tue 23-Oct-12 18:37:32

What has happened to Michael and baby Scarlett - I seem to have missed some episodes and he's disappeared.

cheeseandmushroomghostie Tue 23-Oct-12 18:40:22

Do we know who Kat is shagging yet? Or have they just buried that plot line for a while? hmm

Mrsjay Wed 24-Oct-12 09:06:04

I have no idea what christian ever saw in SYed inthe first place he does whinge ALL THE TIME , I suspect the Kat shagger will be revealed at Christmas <yawn>

ViviPru Wed 24-Oct-12 11:45:21

Christian ought to get it on with Gary Lucy.

Loobylou222 Wed 24-Oct-12 12:02:48

I was wondering about Michael and Scarlett, no idea where they are! I think it comes out at Xmas who Kay was with.

Mrsjay Wed 24-Oct-12 12:05:25

Last time I saw Michael and scarlett the baby was screaming and he was in the livingroom sorting his tie or 'something' <worried> he should be the one havine SS intervention not Lola

Loobylou222 Wed 24-Oct-12 12:15:06

Are we trying to make a point or something re the fact that Lola is a great mum an had baby taken away and michelangelo is a terrible dad but ss not involved at all?

Loobylou222 Wed 24-Oct-12 12:15:34

I meant ee not we, I hate autocorrect!!!

Mrsjay Wed 24-Oct-12 12:17:09

I think it was said on another thread that maybe they are sterotyping Lola and Billy and then Michael is getting away with it so maybe thats where they are going <dunno>

YouOldSlag Wed 24-Oct-12 12:17:55

I think EE have done social services a lot of damage and has portrayed them as baby snatching villains.

Loobylou222 Wed 24-Oct-12 12:18:42

HAHAHAHA I have no idea why my phone thought I wanted to say michaelangelo!!!!!

ViviPru Wed 24-Oct-12 12:20:03

I thought you did it on purpose! Michelangelo it is forevermore for us sad sacs regular EE

Mrsjay Wed 24-Oct-12 12:20:09

YOUR you are right I think it is an awful storyline Lola didn't really do anything wrong and the social worker seemed really strict and then took the baby away It is just horrible. I know children who live in worse circumstances than Lola and SS work with the families to keep the children where they are,

ViviPru Wed 24-Oct-12 12:22:11

regular EE thread contributors that should have said.

Loobylou222 Wed 24-Oct-12 12:46:40

Well I've never had any dealings with ss, and dot know anyone who has, but would like to think that they are not as harsh in rl as what ee is making them out to be.

YouOldSlag Wed 24-Oct-12 13:05:05

My Mum used to be a social worker in that field and she says the priority was always to try and keep the baby with its mother as much as humanly possible. She said she preferred seeing a messy house and a well cared for baby than the other way around.

Mrsjay Wed 24-Oct-12 13:06:58

I just think they have show SS in a terrible light and EE is meant to deal with real ishoos and this is just rubbish I guess it was to give the baby to Phil poor lexie

BeingBooyhoo Wed 24-Oct-12 17:01:43

i agree. i think they did the SS storyline really badly and will have caused alot of unneccessary bad feeling amongst some people. i really dont know why they took lexi away based on, what? a few dirty pots and pans? i know lola punched a girl but i very much doubt the same in RL would have resulted in losing the baby. never mind them giving it to phil sodding mitchell!! i know it's for ratings etc but it could be a bit more realistic.

<goes to look for a life>

Mrsjay Wed 24-Oct-12 17:07:08

Isnt lola on probation or something It is pretty rubbish that they took the baby ,

>>runs after Being to find life

YouOldSlag Wed 24-Oct-12 17:09:00

Apparently they had a formal complaint from the British Association of Social Workers about its unrealistic portrayal of SS.

People forget that SW are there to help, not snatch, and this ludicrous storyline will just deter people from seeking help.

YouOldSlag Wed 24-Oct-12 17:11:23

Yes Lola was on probation and hit someone who threatened to kill her baby. The SW bumped into Billy who had 3 cans of lager in his bag, about three dishes hadn't been washed and Bingo! off the SW goes with the baby. Not so much as a court order in place.

But then SS came up with a better idea: let's give the baby to an ex con who barely knows her on the unproven grounds that he may be her grandfather.

Mrsjay Wed 24-Oct-12 17:11:35

*Apparently they had a formal complaint from the British Association of Social Workers about its unrealistic portrayal of SS.

Good I am glad they complained such a pile of poop young girl has baby oh wait a dirty sink oh lets swoop for baby, and Grandad doesn't work oh that is terrible ridiculous storyline,

Mrsjay Wed 24-Oct-12 17:12:14

was the cans of Lager that did it hmm

YouOldSlag Wed 24-Oct-12 17:15:14

Yes, that Billy and his three cans of Skol! She is much better off with violent recovering alcoholic and former crackhead Phil.

Mrsjay Wed 24-Oct-12 17:20:09

She is much better off with violent recovering alcoholic and former crackhead Phil.

well he is on the wagon grin

BeingBooyhoo Wed 24-Oct-12 17:20:39

oh good. i'm glad they complained.

i think EE should have SS admit they've made a mistake, didn't follow protocol, that the SW was under alot of pressure, jumped the gun and took a baby from a loving family by mistake without doing everything in it's power to support the family in raising the child. not gonna happen though.

<gives up on looking for a life>

Mrsjay Wed 24-Oct-12 17:23:39

We said on another E E thread that we hoped the social worker was going to be to blame under pressure etc,

<<eastenders is my life >>

BeingBooyhoo Wed 24-Oct-12 17:25:35

glad i'm not the only one grin

Loobylou222 Wed 24-Oct-12 17:48:04

They would hav a field day in my house if they took children if they live in a messy house!!! I don't know anyone who house children and AND an immaculate house!

YouOldSlag Wed 24-Oct-12 18:27:29

Loobylou- exactly. When my Mum was a SW, she said they didn't care about messy houses, as long as the baby was OK. She also said that the hardest bit of her job was politely accepting a well meant cup of tea when she really didn't fancy it, or the mug, or the drink. Yuk!

SkinnyMarinkADink Wed 24-Oct-12 21:15:24

Re the kat affair..

On digital spy it says that the mystery branning brother continues to persue kat...

BeingBooyhoo Wed 24-Oct-12 22:05:07

max max max max max max max max max

i think it might be max grin

Mrsjay Wed 24-Oct-12 22:06:27

you maybe thinking it could be max Being

youarewinning Wed 24-Oct-12 22:14:07

Oh some fellow saddo's people who follow EE closely. grin

I also went ballistic at the Lola and SW story. I work where I am involved in CP. Believe me, in RL SS do not take children because the standards of cleanliness are not desirable. SS protocol states they can't because people have differing standards. A child actually has to have been harmed or at proven risk of visable harm before they can even seek a court order/ care order.

angry

Rant over! I am loving AJ, he actually cracks me up. I hope he doesn't leave soon.

Loobylou222 Wed 24-Oct-12 22:21:30

I have a feeling it's Derek, just thinking outside the box!

Have just realized my last post totally didn't make sense again! I don't know what wrong with me tonight!

Loobylou222 Wed 24-Oct-12 22:21:38

I have a feeling it's Derek, just thinking outside the box!

Have just realized my last post totally didn't make sense again! I don't know what wrong with me tonight!

Mrsjay Wed 24-Oct-12 22:24:44

Yes we all went down the derek <shudder> route before I think it is him as well (heave)

Loobylou222 Wed 24-Oct-12 22:30:32

Makes me sick too! Just think all the others are a bit obvious. Would like to think that max is actually committed to Tanya this time.

Mrsjay Wed 24-Oct-12 22:36:03

Max has something going on in Manchester I think it is a baby he was seen pushing wads of money through a door a few weeks back jack is to much of a slag to worry about Kat it isn't Michael so only leaves Derek !

Loobylou222 Wed 24-Oct-12 22:53:35

Oh really I didn't know that about max! Jack seems to into Sharon at the minute to worry about kat.
U
I can't wait till the xmas story (I know that is extremely sad)

Mrsjay Wed 24-Oct-12 22:56:05

oh a happy enders christmas just to make our christmas day cheery grin I come home from my mums put Pjs on and settle down with a chocolate orange and watch E E ,

Loobylou222 Wed 24-Oct-12 23:09:06

I think I have seen a happy ending once on Xmas day!

Everyone came to us on Xmas day and I said I'm watching ee weather u like it or not, ( was 6mo pregnant and grumpy!) and they all left!

Mrsjay Wed 24-Oct-12 23:10:41

hehe @ them leaving .

BeingBooyhoo Wed 24-Oct-12 23:39:13

oh that is a happy EE ending. alone is the best way to watch EE.
grin

BeingBooyhoo Wed 24-Oct-12 23:40:40

my mum gets me a chocolate orange at xmas aswell. when did that 'tradition' start? is it a spin off from getting an actual orange in the good ole days?

Has anyone noticed how the SW has "softened" bringing lola the pic of lexi?

Beginnings of a little back pedaling me thinks!

BeingBooyhoo Thu 25-Oct-12 00:00:00

yes i noticed that too.

i welled up when lola was telling phil that it was a pic of lexi rolling over and how she's been watching for her doing it for the first time but then missed it sad

Mrsjay Thu 25-Oct-12 08:33:23

my mum gets me a chocolate orange at xmas aswell. when did that 'tradition' start? is it a spin off from getting an actual orange in the good ole days?

yes I think so

Derek is leaving at christmas so maybe Alfi grows a pair and kills him

Mrsjay Thu 25-Oct-12 08:52:06

Derek is leaving at christmas so maybe Alfi grows a pair and kills him

yaaaaay @Derek leaving Alfie will probably nag him out the square with his huffs , he is a bit pointless and doesn't really gel with any of the stories and I hate his son I know he is meant to be enders hot tottie but meh, and they never really got to the bottom of what went on between Derek and Michael from the past after he beat him up months ago,

Loobylou222 Thu 25-Oct-12 10:29:22

Mmmm is it too early to eat a chocolate orange?

I hope Lola gets Lexie back for Xmas.

BeingBooyhoo Thu 25-Oct-12 10:41:10

oh i like joey branning. as long as joey stays, derek can clear off. joey is a bit of a shit though isn't he?

Mrsjay Thu 25-Oct-12 10:42:17

YEAH HE IS A CHIP OF THE OLD DEREK BLOCK HE ISNT VERY NICE TOTTIE maybe joey will chase derek away

BeingBooyhoo Thu 25-Oct-12 10:50:33

WHY ARE YOU SHOUTING? grin

Loobylou222 Thu 25-Oct-12 11:52:43

Joey is horrible! Lovely looking though! Watching this morning soap review, joey and Lauren kiss!

ViviPru Thu 25-Oct-12 13:47:51

I thought they'd drag the Joey-Lauren kiss out for a while yet. He's a rotter. I don't find bad boys attractive. EE is sadly lacking in objects of swoon for me...

Mrsjay Thu 25-Oct-12 13:48:48

oh my caps sometimes llock I never notice until somebody points out I AM SHOUTING blush

BeingBooyhoo Thu 25-Oct-12 15:57:22

aren't joey and lauren 1st cousins? where are EE going with that storyline then? confused

ViviPru Thu 25-Oct-12 16:00:08

Yeah - they are as far as we know.

Loobylou222 Thu 25-Oct-12 16:52:42

Yeh there are but there is a romour that Lauren isn't Max's daughter.

ViviPru Thu 25-Oct-12 16:56:45

Wasn't that just a rumour started among us sad bastards while speculating on here, that actually had no basis in reality?! Forgive me if I'm wrong!

BeingBooyhoo Thu 25-Oct-12 17:37:17

even if she wasn't max's, neither her or joey are aware of that, but they do know they are cousins. isn't that a bit of a no-no? or not really anymore? confused

ViviPru Thu 25-Oct-12 17:50:26

hmm

ViviPru Thu 25-Oct-12 17:50:39

oops wrong face - I mean confused !!!

BeingBooyhoo Thu 25-Oct-12 17:53:59

grin

Loobylou222 Thu 25-Oct-12 18:24:57

It may have been on here I read it haha. But yeh they do think they are cousins so it's still wrong, but I didn't think it was actually against the law to marry your cousin? I'm gonna google it!

YouOldSlag Thu 25-Oct-12 18:47:05

I think there's some dark whispers that Lauren is Derek's daughter.

BeingBooyhoo Thu 25-Oct-12 18:51:03

ewwwwww!! tanya and derek? no wayyy!! anyone and derek for that matter. <shudder>

ViviPru Thu 25-Oct-12 19:04:03

Ah right. Typical Eastenders. Lauren and Joey get it on and and Tanya freaks out, but Lauren is all rebellious and pouty and so what - we're only cousins - cousins can legally MARRY if they want to and Tanya's like but he's not your cousin he's your BROTHER!!! Dun dun duuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuun....

BeingBooyhoo Thu 25-Oct-12 19:09:04

i think you have it there vivi

that reminded me of the Kat-Zoe 'dun dun duuuuuuun'.

"you aint my muvva!"

"yes I AM!"

dun dun duuuuuun

ViviPru Thu 25-Oct-12 19:10:45

It would piss me right off though if they did as it would be massively inconsistent - when we were speculating about this on the other thread, we all pointed out that there's no way Tanya would have kept that a secret that long.

Loobylou222 Thu 25-Oct-12 19:11:01

Apparently you can marry your cousin confused

BeingBooyhoo Thu 25-Oct-12 19:13:52

it seems like EE are scraping the barrel for storylines ATM. the crap handling of the lola/SS thing and if they do go with this lauren and joey thing aswell. might have an EE break for a while.

LemonBreeland Thu 25-Oct-12 19:14:14

Ooh interesting about the Lauren and Joey thing.

The SS thing with Lola, Lexi and Phil is annoying me. I know it is only tv but people will believe ss are really like this. You see enough dm stories anyway. Lexi would not have been removed from Lexi when there is Billy there to look after her. And if Phil get s custody that would just be a joke.

ViviPru Thu 25-Oct-12 19:15:28

might have an EE break for a while

I'd like to. I know it's the healthy thing to do. But I caaaaaaaaaant [sob]

BeingBooyhoo Thu 25-Oct-12 19:15:30

i remember one of the episodes of big fat gypsy weddings discussed first cousins marrying each other and as far as i know they were legally allowed to.

ViviPru Thu 25-Oct-12 19:16:05

Haha that should have been <sob> sad. I was too overcome to convey cyber emotions.

Loobylou222 Thu 25-Oct-12 19:18:20

I feel the same I would have withdrawal symptoms if I had an ee break!

BeingBooyhoo Thu 25-Oct-12 19:19:18

grin

i had no tv for a year and discovered that i managed quite well without EE or any of the other soaps. i have started watching EE again in teh last few months but have no interest in teh others at all now, where before i wouldn't move from my chair from 7-9pm.

ViviPru Thu 25-Oct-12 19:21:13

I think I might be a bit <whispers> funny about it, since we had series link, I haven't missed an episode, like, for years. It's as though I just can't, but I don't know why. I'm otherwise a generally stable and cultured individual. Honest, guv'nor....

SilveryMoon Thu 25-Oct-12 19:28:59

Love an EE thread. I'm a bit grossed out by Lauren and Joey, and that was before I read that they kiss.
I was hoping the SW was not legitimate, but there was the court hearing wasn't there?

YouOldSlag Thu 25-Oct-12 19:32:00

Tanya would SO be able to keep it a secret for that long. Face it, if you'd slept with Derek Branning you wouldn't tell a soul, would you? like ever, ever, ever.

BeingBooyhoo Thu 25-Oct-12 19:36:25

i think tanya could keep it secret. she almost buried max alive didn't she? i think she could keep that secret if she wanted to. but i still cant see her even going there in the first place.

YouOldSlag Thu 25-Oct-12 19:37:25

Unless Derek didn't take no for an answer

BeingBooyhoo Thu 25-Oct-12 19:39:04

hmm you have a point but in those circumstance i couldn't see tanya staying quiet. unless she was all meek and mild until she moved onto the square.

Loobylou222 Thu 25-Oct-12 19:39:48

I kinda thought that youoldslag (feel mean calling you that!)

YouOldSlag Thu 25-Oct-12 19:41:40

Nah, she could keep it quiet, maybe Derek blackmailed her or maybe she was too ashamed to ever say it to anyone or maybe she just didn't want it to be true so buried it deep. Either way, I can totally believe she's kept it a secret.

grin I can take it or leave it me <<cracks knuckles and rubs nails on lapel>>

I saw the Lola being beaten up episode.
Started to watch the Stag Night one but I was shock at how bally awful Christian looks. (I know, not real)

Saw the Janine Wedding
Last Christmas episode.

And before then when Roxie was going to have a baby for syed & Christian.

So not an addict wink

I'll watch it Christmas Day (and maybe a couple before but I'll be confused

Loobylou222 Fri 26-Oct-12 09:12:00

Did Phil really think he would be able to take Lexie to see Ben???
Sw was there when billy said Lola shouldn't marry ben, surely that won't help get her back?

ViviPru Fri 26-Oct-12 09:48:33

That last scene was just dismally poor.

obrigada Fri 26-Oct-12 10:20:34

Was wondering the same thing Loobylou confused

Blondeshavemorefun Fri 26-Oct-12 16:44:41

surely ss wouldnt allow an ex convict, who is a known criminal whose son aka daddy is locked up for murder to have custody of lolas baby?

Loobylou222 Fri 26-Oct-12 17:41:20

Does seem a bit far fetched.

YouOldSlag Fri 26-Oct-12 17:42:16

Also, no patenrity test, just Phil saying he's the grandad now. the storyline is ludicrous.

Loobylou222 Fri 26-Oct-12 18:12:57

That's true didn't think of that, it is getting ridiculous now.

According to this morning Coras other daughter is being introduced soon.

OhTinky Fri 26-Oct-12 18:45:16

If Lauren being Dereks daughter is true then Tanya has slept with all 3 Branning brothers. Like WTF? hmm

BeingBooyhoo Fri 26-Oct-12 18:49:56

is this cora's daughter that was adopted as a baby?

Loobylou222 Fri 26-Oct-12 19:13:07

Yeh Ava I think her name is, there's rumours it was Sharon but that's not true.

BeingBooyhoo Fri 26-Oct-12 19:27:55

i had a suspicion at the time of the story that her baby was mixed race and that was why she had to give her up. it was just the way she reacted to patrick's advances at the same time that made me think there was a connection. she didn't ever say why she had to give her up did she? or was it just because she was young and unmarried? i always got the impression there was more to it.

YouOldSlag Fri 26-Oct-12 19:32:32

Yes Ava is mixed race, I think I saw a photo of the actress they cast.

BeingBooyhoo Fri 26-Oct-12 19:37:21

thanks slag (doesn't feel right calling you that grin)

Loobylou222 Fri 26-Oct-12 19:41:24

I said that too BeingBooyhoo

I didn't think about her daughter being mixed race but it does make sense.

SleeveOfWizard Sun 28-Oct-12 19:10:47

Where has Amira gone to? I don't recall an exit scene or anything.

Loobylou222 Mon 29-Oct-12 19:22:11

Didn't Amira go to Pakistan or something?

I saw her exit but i don't remember where she went. Didnt she tell Syed that yasmin wasnt his though

YouOldSlag Tue 30-Oct-12 16:54:40

No Yasmin is definitely Syed's as Amira is very proper and not a slag. I had a feeling she went back to her Dad's or was still in London? I'm sure I heard them mention "picking her up from Amira's" or something.

SleeveOfWizard Tue 30-Oct-12 21:44:08

Odd that they never mention why she is away. I need to get a life. sigh

YouOldSlag Wed 31-Oct-12 09:34:31

She went away for such a contrived reason. She slept with Anthony and felt so ashamed she moved away!

Loobylou222 Wed 31-Oct-12 09:55:00

Ooohhh that's right I remember now! As if you would just go and leave your baby though.

Where have Michael and Scarlett gone?

ViviPru Wed 31-Oct-12 10:16:48

Yes the non-presence of Amira is very weak. As is that of Zainab. I simply do not buy that Masood's character would just kick her out indefinitely like that with Kamil. I know he's left her outside in the gutter before but that was after a very long ongoing period of difficulties. It's just silly.

I'm quite guiltily enjoying the fission between Lauren and Joey - she plays it really well but that just highlights how much of an inferior actor he is.

Loobylou222 Thu 01-Nov-12 23:20:09

I missed the end if Tuesday nights episode , did Danny beat Christian up?

The girl who plays Lauren is a brilliant actor, I saw an interview with David witts (joey) on day break, it was like trying to get blood from a stone. For Kate Garraway, he is a very Boring man.

I'm quite guiltily enjoying the fission between Lauren and Joey - she plays it really well but that just highlights how much of an inferior actor he is.

Agreed. He is dreadful. His mouth is always hanging open.

Also, he looks very similar to Dennis Rickman?

Loobylou222 Fri 02-Nov-12 15:39:48

He does!!! I didn't notice until you said that!

Christian/Syed - how many times?? Boring boring boring ........

Loobylou222 Sat 03-Nov-12 10:50:30

i think they both leave at xmas, syed lord farquar really annoys me.

YouOldSlag Sat 03-Nov-12 11:29:04

Check out sexy Masood last night going all Goodfellas on Danny! Corrrr.

Loobylou222 Sat 03-Nov-12 13:49:56

He is good looking in a wierd sort of way. My boss meet him once at an award ceremony said he was lovely.

YouOldSlag Sat 03-Nov-12 17:32:08

Awww Looby, I would have been gutted if you'd said he was an arse. I just love him. It's not even the looks, it's his whole character. He is so cool.

rhondajean Sun 04-Nov-12 00:50:56

I think it could be Tanya and kat! Total shake up I'd love it.

I have a hoooige jack crush... Phwoar.... Like majorly so, he is fab.

Loobylou222 Sun 04-Nov-12 13:31:08

Kat is really annoying me lately, why does she keep cheating on Alfie? He's so sweet, and I think he's quite cute too!

ViviPru Sun 04-Nov-12 17:06:31

Nooooo! Alfie is a chump! Max on the other hand.... I can imaging being wooed by him online, and them meeting him in person and being a bit oh... don't fancy that... oh sod it....

SinisterBuggyMonth Mon 05-Nov-12 00:39:20

I just keep wondering about Kat, why, if you were having a secret affair with one man, you would insist on spending your time shooting guilty glances and making covert flirty comments over your impossibly high cleavage at himself AND his two brothers... unless shes doing them all...

Also Joey does look like a budget Dennis, surely Sharon would have noticed by now

YouOldSlag Mon 05-Nov-12 07:55:42

I bet Max is filthy in bed.

And YY to Joey being a budget Dennis. It's just a matter of time before Sharon gives him the glad eye and says "you remind me of someone. Get your trousers off"

Loobylou222 Mon 05-Nov-12 14:20:31

Hahaha re Sharon!

I bet that why Tanya can't stay away obviously jack wasn't dirty enough!

Kat is just a slut!

Just catching up with tonight's episode.

I'm confused - where do Roxy & her moomintroll child live now? That she can offer Christian a spare bed for a few nights?

Loobylou222 Mon 05-Nov-12 22:20:56

She lives with phatboy confused

Ah thanks Looby.

Everyone moves around the square endlessly, all the households are so chaotic (& the walls of the houses so elastic!). Having young children is no barrier to people moving in with people they barely know (Sharon/Jack) & poor moomintroll has had more addresses than hot dinners.

Yes I know it's not real wink

Loobylou222 Tue 06-Nov-12 07:37:46

I know they make it look so easy to move house they all only seem to have one suitcase! And when they move into a new house it's all decorated instantly. Wish I could have done that in my house, been here 2 years next week and my house still isn't finished!

Laughing, Looby!

My daughter & I always used to comment on how, when anybody was packing either to leave permanently or go on hol, they just grabbed the empty suitcase from the top of the wardrobe, opened the top drawer of the chest & just flung everything in, will nilly. Sorted! grin!

Loobylou222 Tue 06-Nov-12 09:16:53

I know!! It takes me about 3 days just to pack for a holiday!

I really new to get a life hahaha

Loobylou222 Tue 06-Nov-12 09:17:16

Amira returns... with bad hair

SleeveOfWizard Thu 08-Nov-12 22:13:15

I don't understand the Amira thing. How come she is asking Sayeed whether she can take the child? Did she give her up or something? That bloody footie in the summer really messed up my viewing routine. I think I missed loads.

Loobylou222 Thu 08-Nov-12 22:17:39

And why is she being all nice all of a side I swear she was a bitch before she left!

Yasmin isn't just a toy she can pick up and drop.

And also how old is Yasmin supposed to be because she looks way to big for a cot, and who isn't 2 yet (u know this because he is the same age as my nephew, also called tommy coincidently) and was sleeping in a bed!

<goes to find life she once had>

ViviPru Fri 09-Nov-12 16:40:59

Can someone explain to me about the return of Zainab? I think I must have missed an episode, I saw her rock up and start shouting the odds at the firework display, then next thing there's a 'pact' and she's promised to change and not interfere - have I missed something?

BooyhooRemembering Fri 09-Nov-12 16:48:22

yes and can someone explain why lola isn't getting lexi back but instead she is being fostered by phil mitchell?? it was literally a few dirty dishes, nappy rash and her punching someone. surely the writers realise that this is way to unrealistic to be bought by viewers.

Blondeshavemorefun Fri 09-Nov-12 17:45:14

Fostered by a known criminal whose son Lexis dad is in prison for murder ..,,,,,,,

Stupid

Loobylou222 Fri 09-Nov-12 18:51:33

No one can really figure out why Lola isn't getting Lexie back confused

I think you pretty much have the zainab thing right, she pretty much rocked up again, moved back in, called a family meeting and promised not to be a moany old cow.

ViviPru Fri 09-Nov-12 19:04:55

Rhiiiiight. What a load of old bollocks.

<furtively double checks series link is still active>

thepeanutsparent Fri 09-Nov-12 19:16:17

Hi can I join this thread? I can't seem to leave EE alone atm, despite horrid Lola/lexi storylIne shame

Loobylou222 Fri 09-Nov-12 21:06:44

Course you can smile

So how long before roxy and Micheal sleep together?

SinisterBuggyMonth Fri 09-Nov-12 21:47:44

Oh Roxy, yes, even though he tried to fit up her sister, lets just forget about that

Loobylou222 Sat 10-Nov-12 08:05:48

Yes that doesn't matter anymore because Roxy needs a place to live!

thepeanutsparent Sat 10-Nov-12 19:04:27

Has anyone else thought kats other 'man' is a woman? I was sure it was a female hand when Kat was fixing it after the daft punch up in the Vic a while ago. Then tonight I thought it must be Roxy - that's why she's such a bitch to Kat and the timings fit with those texts Kat gets. But then Roxy was with Michael tonight so that can't be right... Hmmm. <scratches head some more>

rhondajean Sat 10-Nov-12 19:39:59

Me peanuts! See above - I thought it might be Tanya but I haven't thought it through properly it was just a hunch.

BooyhooRemembering Mon 12-Nov-12 21:27:01

RIGHT!

can someone from EE please come on here right now and explain themselves!! why the hell are they taking all the babies away from their parents? what the hell reason can there be for taking yasmin out of the program? i dont get the point of thsi storyline at all. was the actress who plays her demanding a massive pay increase?

sort it out!

Loobylou222 Mon 12-Nov-12 21:32:13

I think Christian an syed leave at Xmas, I had a thought tonight that they might move to Birmingham. Other than that I can't understand why thy are pushing the poor girl from pillar to post.

As for Kat, I'm certain Derek is the mystery man.

Punkatheart Mon 12-Nov-12 21:39:12

Never mind all that...what about Tanya's mother having a baby called HEATHER. Oh dear.

BooyhooRemembering Mon 12-Nov-12 21:39:38

i think i might vomit of it turns out to be derek.

and yes that could be the only explanation for yasmin leaving. but then, why couldn;t they have just taken her with them when/if they are leaving? it seems so silly that a woman she hasn't seen in however long it's been can just walk back in and say "i want her now, i have a husband (who has never met the child!) and we are to be a family, hand her over". syed was so very pathetic about the whole thing. shit storyline, badly done.

BooyhooRemembering Mon 12-Nov-12 21:41:12

heather? i thought it was AVA? confused

Loobylou222 Mon 12-Nov-12 21:45:36

It's Ava grin

It is a bad story line sites needs to grow some balls I just want to shake him and shout 'STAND UP FOR YOURSELF YOU STUPID MAN!'

Punkatheart Mon 12-Nov-12 21:51:09

Did I mishear? I thought she said Heather....oh well, not quite the storyline I thought it was then!

BooyhooRemembering Mon 12-Nov-12 21:56:52

why? who is heather? confused

Blondeshavemorefun Tue 13-Nov-12 07:46:56

The peanuts - yes im starting to think that - as the rise petals and lovely texts - def too much for a male grin

Have we had a female gay storyline in ee?

Punkatheart Tue 13-Nov-12 08:08:34

But we did see a pair of hairy legs with Kat. So now we need to look for a woman's hairy legs.

I could be Sherlock, me.

Longdistance Tue 13-Nov-12 08:11:24

Shirley?

<shudders>

whatkungfuthat Tue 13-Nov-12 08:32:39

How long are they going to drag it out for?

captainmummy Tue 13-Nov-12 08:38:40

I think it's Derek too - another one who makes me physically shudder when I see him (him and Savile!)

As for Lexi - can't watch it. Seems quite true to life - complete balls-up all round.

Mrs Grim - get her out! Can't stand her. One expression, ONE, even when she was delivering Lolas baby.

thepeanutsparent Tue 13-Nov-12 08:50:55

hmmm it could be Tanya?! Kat was so shifty tonight and she could be feeling guilty (when the branning bros turn up) cos it's Max's wife. Its can't be Derek, it just CAN"T be that would be too dirty even for Kat. Also, Kat swore blind to Alfie that it was no one he knows. Or is that a red herring I wonder. When were the hairy legs? I missed that...

I sort of like Mrs Grim grin - she needs to give Syed and Christian some emoting lessons - they're like a couple of wet fish.

Loobylou222 Tue 13-Nov-12 19:04:09

Who's mrs Grim?

thepeanutsparent Tue 13-Nov-12 20:55:01

Im presuming Captain meant Cora as Mrs Grim

Blondeshavemorefun Tue 13-Nov-12 23:26:01

Def didn't want to go out with TANYA for drinks and both ignored each other at the bar

Normal person would chat

The mystery deepens

WhatTheFookIsGangnamStyle Mon 19-Nov-12 23:49:39

Blondeshave - yes there was a female gay storyline between Sonia and someone. Forget who with though.
Heather is dead. Cora's mysterious daughter called Ava.
I miss loads of EE's now that the omniobus? spelling confused is no longer shown on a Sunday.

Blondeshavemorefun Mon 19-Nov-12 23:56:47

Think it's repeated on Saturday???

Oh that's right but didn't sonja dither between Martin and the girl?

whatkungfuthat Tue 20-Nov-12 07:30:41

There was another storyline years ago with 2 young gay hairdressers, Della and Binnie <shows considerable age>

hattymattie Tue 20-Nov-12 10:24:15

I think EE has got really boring now - hope we've seen the last of Christian and Said - they got way too drippy - I was fed up with watching them weep the whole time. I don't think it's ever really recovered from Stacy leaving. But was wondering why Derek is so against Joe being with Lauren - are they half brother and sister maybe or have I gone completely off on my own storyline,

Dillydollydaydream Tue 20-Nov-12 10:42:57

Hmm I too was thinking Lauren might be Derek's hence the focus on joe and Lauren's relationship. I know being cousins is a bit weird but it's not illegal whereas half siblings would be. think I just have an over active imagination
Lauren def looks more like Derek than tania or max!

SinisterBuggyMonth Wed 21-Nov-12 01:20:30

I think Derek is just being Derek (hence his bizzare controlling episode with Alice tonight). Besides I cant see Tanya with Derek.

However I dont think it is entirely impossible Max is really Joeys dad....

Blondeshavemorefun Wed 21-Nov-12 06:26:31

I was wondering about why Derek was so against it

Not illegal for cousins to kiss or
marry

Unless Lauren is Derek's .......

Blondeshavemorefun Wed 21-Nov-12 06:27:19

Who is joeys and Alice's mum? Dead or divorced?

CanYouHearMe Wed 21-Nov-12 23:12:39

Divorced, I think.

confuddledDOTcom Wed 21-Nov-12 23:52:20

Divorced because they've made comments about how she doesn't like Derek.

WhatTheFookIsGangnamStyle Thu 22-Nov-12 20:58:55

Now theres a thought SinisterBuggyMonth you may have hit the nail on the head there. Max could be Joeys dad and that is the hold Derek has over him. Derek does occassionally remind Max's of some sort of sordid secret. So did Max have yet another affair or was he a sperm donor for Derek and dereks wife / ladyfriend.

Think I must be extra tired ATM or just stupid - but can someone explain why Tanya has agreed to Derek's blackmail? Is it just to stop Max from finding out that Lauren & joey slept together? Or that Lauren was the crash driver?

Why didn't she just face Derek down? Am I missing something?

Is Derek Lauren's father, or is Max Joey's dad?

Pls, I need answers (or a life!) x

WhatTheFookIsGangnamStyle Thu 29-Nov-12 18:37:00

She doesn't want Max to know that Lauren and Joey are together. Lauren made Tanya promise not to tell. There is more to the story but what it is, I don't know.
If Lauren and Joey were in fact brother and sister wouldn't Tanya have totally freaked out on discovering they were a couple? She certainly wouldn't encourage Joey to hang around Walford because Derek says so.
I think Lauren looks more like Joey and Alice looks more like Abi.
Where is baby Oscar these days?

Blondeshavemorefun Thu 29-Nov-12 19:01:22

maybe max is joeys dad, but max doesnt know it, nor does tanya , but derek does hence why so against it

derek could say lauren was driving and no way they could prove it either way plus if she had been drinking, where we knew joey was clear as police tested him

so why does tanya do as derek says?

oscar goes to live in the place where all soap children go - used to be dots but now shes absent, prob nursery, tho isnt he of school age now?

Thanks fellow EE fans. I think it's really badly written, whatever the incest/secret is meant to be.

And as for Alfie just suddenly going off to Germany (funded by an anonymous benefactor/Branning Bro - ludicrous!

As somebody else said, my cat could write a more convincing script!

Wish I could stop watching this rubbish.

WhatTheFookIsGangnamStyle Thu 29-Nov-12 22:26:04

The Kat and mystery lover storyline is becoming rather tedious. Alfie going away without Kat under the circumstances is just ridiculous. Anyone else would be as suspicious as hell receiving an anonymous ticket but not Alfie stupid Moon. As for Derek I wish someone would just shoot him.

whatkungfuthat Fri 30-Nov-12 06:44:03

They heavily hinted at Max last night. I suppose it will be Derek's turn tonight.

sheeplikessleep Sat 01-Dec-12 12:28:37

I thought I saw on front of TV mags when I was in a rush the other day ...

Picture of Tanya and Lauren with headline about devastation or something on one mag cover

Then on another mag, headline about how Alfie kills Kats lover (something about revenge) by hit and run

In that split second I saw it, I assumed it was Max? (Who I think is the most plausible given track record and that he seems a bit 'sheepish' at moment).

...I could have imagined it ...

DudeIAmSoFuckingRock Sat 01-Dec-12 12:40:10

i think derek is just dead against either of his children having a partner. he is a controlling maniac and cant cope with either of them farting without him knowing about it.

tanya wont stand up to him because derek will go to the police and say lauren was driving and will also tell max about lauren and joey. tanya and lauren know max will probably try and kill joey if he found out so they dont want this to happen.

BTW has anyone else noticed just how many eastenders seem to be qualified to work in the salon? did tanya ever do any sort of course before she opened up?

MrsTomHardy Sat 01-Dec-12 23:25:34

I stopped watching 2 weeks ago....I cannot stand Joey or Derek!!!

SinisterBuggyMonth Sun 02-Dec-12 12:07:06

I have 3 theories

Its Derek. It is building up to a who killed Derek storyline for Xmas, so the most sensible thing for Derek to do now is piss as many people off as possible until then so there are as many suspects as possible (i bagsy Tanya now)

Its Jack and Max knows or its Max and Jack knows, hence the looks that seem to pass between the two unlikely brothers (and while we're at it, I dont think any of the Brannings have the same Dad anyway, they are so different)

However I think it would be great interesting if it was Max AND Jack both at the same time in a sleazy Kat Sandwich with Branning Sauce!

SantaIAmSoFuckingRock Sun 02-Dec-12 14:07:59

"a sleazy Kat Sandwich with Branning Sauce!"

<vom>

too much imagery there!

grin

WhatTheFookIsGangnamStyle Sun 02-Dec-12 15:11:03

Why couldn't Kat just be happy with Alfie and Tommy?! Maybe it's not a Branning at all. Where is Michael these days?

whatkungfuthat Sun 02-Dec-12 15:21:17

I reckon it's Derek but I'd rather it was Jack. I'm not keen on Kat but the thought of Derek actually humping makes me vom.

WhatTheFookIsGangnamStyle Sun 02-Dec-12 15:32:32

I can't see Kat getting it on with Derek. He is vile. I can't see him writing on mirrors with lippy and spending his money on gifts for her, or putting petals on a bed for her.

Blondeshavemorefun Sun 02-Dec-12 18:56:57

excalty, thats a girl thing - lipstick and flowers smile

WhatTheFookIsGangnamStyle Sun 02-Dec-12 21:05:06

Not necessarily but it's deffo not a Derek thing.

grin

SantaIAmSoFuckingRock Sun 02-Dec-12 21:49:32

it cant be derek. it just cant be. that imagery is just too harsh for my brain to process.

i've said all along i think it is max and when i think back, wasn't it max who rented a room before for his secret liasons with Tanya when they were still keeping quiet about their back-togetherness? wasn't he still with vanessa then?

SinisterBuggyMonth Mon 03-Dec-12 00:42:38

The lipstick writing on mirrors/bandage/bog roll and chucking rose petals about IS Derek as it is creepy and the kind if borring mating ritual he would totally buy into as the LAAYDEESE LOVE A BIT OF THE OLD ROHMAAANCE DUNT THEY?!

Otherwise its Jack AND Max taking the piss in a brotherly competitive I can be more mushy than you bruv way

SantaIAmSoFuckingRock Mon 03-Dec-12 00:48:20

hmm, the message she got with the candle does sound a bit like derek and not at all like max or jack. it said something like, "put the candle in the window and i'll come a knocking" cant see max or jack saying that.

confuddledDOTcom Mon 03-Dec-12 01:08:12

I think Derek could turn on the charm (albeit sleazy charm!) if he wanted to. I am avoiding the images but I do think it is him.

SinisterBuggyMonth Mon 03-Dec-12 01:20:15

Only whilst wearing his leather flat cap at a jaunty angle

MisselthwaiteManor Wed 05-Dec-12 06:37:48

does anyone know where Tiffany is? Bianca and everyone came back but no Tiffany and no mention of her confused

Allegedly she has a big part in the play at the school she's been attending near to the prison where Bianca was incarcerated. They mentioned it then moved on in a split second. Gawd knows who isvmesnt to be looking after her.

You see -my cat could write it! grin

And as for Kat's 'busy day' - buying a tub of olives & a cheap photo frame! Alfie are you STUPID hmm

Thought the conversation (shouting) between Shirl/Phil/Lola/Sharon/Jack was quite good last night tho - at last a bit of passion, recrimination, guilt & realisation! Can they keep it up though hmm?

MrsBucketxx Wed 05-Dec-12 09:04:31

shirlys hair looked good too for a change.

do we think ava will come into the frame more?

SinisterBuggyMonth Wed 05-Dec-12 11:00:52

Agree notquite allthough I didnt like the way Jack and Phil manhandled Sharon and Lola away from Shirl. But the whole scene reminded me of Rita Sue and Bob too

whatkungfuthat Wed 05-Dec-12 13:14:20

Sounds like Tiff is going to return with a new head

Yes you are right sinister that made uncomfortable viewing (the manhandling).

I'm guessing it's difficult to strike a balance between the normalising of the manhandling of women and keeping dramatic integrity. Those shaved monkeys (Phil & Jack) would, sadly, behave in that way I believe.

Glad that Shirl's a match for them both!

StopPickingYourNose Fri 07-Dec-12 19:27:15

Sinister - ""LAAYDEESE LOVE A BIT OF THE OLD ROHMAAANCE DUNT THEY?!"" Kat ain't no lady - shesa more like a TomCat! Dribbling Derek ain't the type to do romasnce. Itsnot him!

Please it HAS to be Derek! I can't bear Max making his dysfunctional family even more toxic! Poor Lauren & Abbie ( pretty much the only nice people in EE, along with Fatboy & Poppy )

StopPickingYourNose Sat 08-Dec-12 00:17:58

I like Fatboy he is a funny guy. Poppy is annoying.
It isn't Derek. His style is more likely to be wham bam thank you mam. He would take pleasure in getting what he wanted and thendestroying and humiliating Kat because that is the type of tw4tface he is.
