...it starts tonight, then...?..the actors who play Chantelle and Gray were Ďlooking back atí with Stacey Dooley a few days ago...and itís so easy to see the impact of playing a storyline such as domestic abuse would have on someone...they appeared quite shaken, watching on the screen even though theyíd played it...have we ever had a domestic abuse storyline on EE before when the victim was killed by the abuser..?...Iím not sure that we have...

I think the only other domestic abuse storyline that was fatal was Trevor and Little Mo and the abused killed the abuser in that storyline.

She didn't. He survived the iron incident.

He later tried to kill them both in a botched murder/suicide by setting fire to the Slater house but Little Mo was saved and he died. Alongside Sharon's boyfriend who saved Little Mo's life.

...I didn’t realise that the Chantelle/Gray storyline would hit so straight away...that was so terrifying to watch last night../so upsetting...I mean, really so well done to both actors, must be one of the most difficult storylines to be involved in ...

Apparently the actor is going on a 10 week break soon so I'm sensing a "Who Put Ian in a Coma?" type storyline as he makes enemies of everyone.

Eastenders definitely feels a bit ‘darker’, idk if that’s just me though

I also think the way they’ve approached filming with covid regulations etc. is pretty well done

I think I’ve enjoyed the last couple of episodes because of the smaller cast, EE feels better when it’s stripped back

The second episode felt more like a normal episode. The first one was quite weird.

Ben and Callum's storyline is the weakest aspect of the shows return.

...now that his love has been rejected....do you think he might go for a 10 week Buddhist break in the Himalayas or something...?...
