    Pearly Kings and Quuens, an Eastend knees up and pie and mash - yikes!

    I understand that sometimes EE wants to inject humour into the episodes, but this cliche riddled nonsense left me cold. Reminded me of that time in the mid-90s were not much went on in EE and it lost its way a little.

    EE script writers you are better than this. Let the comedy come from the characters not cringe-worthy exploits like this.

    The door closing was done with Christian & Syed, lost for ideas? I`m not interested in Max/Tanya/Greg. The only episode I`m looking forward to is Vanessa losing it. Zoe has been wasted in EE. When do we get to see more of The Masoods? Have they gone on a long holiday? More of The Masoods please, the rest especially the Moons (exc Michael) are boring.

    Just to add to my previous comment, I`d like to see more of Dot & Fatboy. When is Jean going to be given a decent storyline?

    Think about the kids in the Max and Tanya mess?
    This is a soap, which obviously.. everyone is entitled to their own opinion.
    Therefore this is more likely a love story I personally think Lauren and Abie are spoilt characters! Why should Max and Tanya stop their love for the sake of their children? Sounds selfish but it's not. Far from it actually. The kids should be happy that they can be one big happy family again. (aslong as they STAY loyal)

    Even thow i dont think eastenders should of done the whole max and tanya affair storyline because it has been boring and not very creative at least tonights episode was half worth tuning in for unlike the last god knows how many months think it was stupid they had greg leave so early after finding out when vanessa burst in and confronted tanya that scene should of gone on longer for like a whole five minutess or so zoe was great in this scene its a shame they didnt do more with her character.why the scene where lauren and abbie tell max to go didnt the same thing happen when they found out about stacey it all seems abit the same to me THE EPISODE COULD OF BEEN ALOT BETTER

    Really moving episode tonight. Made me cry when Max left. He will come back though, thankgoodness! :') You can tell because they didn't do the sad music :)
    I hate Lauren and Abi now! Hope Max & Tanya get back together x

    I'm confused... alot of spoilers said that max and tanya would be getting back together, but at the end of tonights episode (12th august) max drove off and tanya was just watching. does this mean the end of max and tanya? god i hope not, max and tanya are just one of those couples that always have to be together. like kat&alfie, dot&jim, stacey&bradley, max&tanya is the way it always has to be!

    does anyone know if max and tanya actually are getting back together or not????? x

    i think that thye should get rid of lauren she is nothing but gobby and think's she is better then everybody else...and she is way out of ryan's leauge and i cant believe he is leaving.. and i think max and tanya should of got back together they make the perfect couple x

    i agree max and tanya should be together, live a happy family.

    I disagree, I think Max had his chance with Tanya and blew it, I mean who knows if they did get back together how long will it be till he cheats on her again. I think that Gregg should be with Tanya, because he is perfect for her and after the news that she could possibly have cancer, Gregg seems as if he would be there for her. Hopefully Gregg comes back after he hears about Tanya :( His holiday has to end eventually...

    Can anyone tell me why Ricky doesn't work at the Arches anymore? I know he went to Dubai but why did he not go back to the Arches when he came back?
