This week on EastEnders: One funeral and an engagement

Nickie | 20:30 UK time, Friday, 29 January 2010

It was the day of the funeral...

review_funeral.jpg.. And Roxy decided to make a personal tribute to Michael Jackson by dressing up in her finest Smooth Criminal get-up. Err... it's what Archie would have wanted. Peggy, on the other hand, was certain that Archie would have wanted a good spread of sausage rolls and sandwiches for the mourners and was to be found knee-deep in margarine and clingfilm all morning. Stacey didn't care what Archie wanted, and spat on his grave. Fortunately, Marsden didn't notice... She did however, give Peggy a grilling at his graveside, but Peggy managed to convince her of her innocence... before obliquely implicating herself in an uncharacteristic moment of candour with Janine. Meanwhile, Ronnie would have danced on Archie's grave if they could have filled it in sooner. Instead, she had the time of her life at the Vic later on. She could at least pretend...

Watch Marsden's video diaries

Who do you think killed Archie Mitchell?

Poor Pat

review_pat.jpgSpare a thought for poor old Pat - bedridden, at death's door and with no means of escape from Janine's endless self-pitying monologues. And from here on, condemned to the care of Florence Nightinjanine, the person who brought on her heart attack in the first place. And while we're on this subject - what exactly has happened to Janine this week? Reminiscing with Ricky about the past? Pledging to nurse Pat back to health? Going to the police station to plead Ian's innocence? Seriously Janine, go empty out an orphan fund box or something. You're scaring us.

Bradley and Stacey engaged... again!

review_stacey.jpgJust as we were pouring a glass of bubbly to toast honest Brad and his dodgy dad's new business - along comes another reason to celebrate. First of all, he tried burying it in a runny egg. Close... but not quite right. Finally he thought about the most luxurious and romantic location in which he could pop the question. A prefabricated used-car lot office. Perfect. Stacey was obviously impressed as within minutes they were in flagrante, with Max knocking on the door wondering what all the ruckus was about. Meanwhile, has anyone noticed how Stacey's hair colour is moving ever closer to Bradders'? If that isn't a sign that this is real love, I don't know what is...

    A good question; "What happended to Janine?" Did she really change for the better or is she planning something devious? Suddenly she loves Pat while just minutes before she hated her.
    I don't know, but I think that Janine discovered something and that something might very well have something to do with Pat's visit to New-Zealand and the phonecalls. Maybe there is a familysecret? Pat was trying to talk to Janine and that was not about Archies murder and framing Ian.
    Then again Pat's heartattack might have triggered something in Janine's feelings and brought out the good side of her. Hence the reminiscing with Ricky of the past? Janine has a bad caracter, a female edition of Nick Cotton you might say. But maybe, maybe, unlike Nick Cotton there is a good side of her........

  • Comment number 6.

    Ronnie and Roxy are OK, aren't they? They share the same parents as Danny, so should Danny not be OK?

    To be honest i think it was Jay who killed Archie because he aint been in the shows for yonks i hope im right love eastenders! :)

    I just loved the conversation between Staceys mum and Shirley. It wasnt about the boots. Staceys mum spoke words of wisdom and helped Shirley get it. I mean realise what relationships are all about. Hard work,understanding and commitment.Well done.

    Alida, I really believe that Janine is different from Nick, in that she does have a human side. I think she genuinely does have the ability to love etc. The thing is, that doesn't make someone a less danagerous person - hell hath no fury like a woman scorned etc.

    As for Danny... I do hope he's not a bad seed like his dear old dad. If you have any burning questions for Liam who plays him, Insider Lou wants them

    The Jean and Shirley conversation was awesome wasn't it! Jean has to be the last person you'd expect Shirley to be taking relationship advice from... What next, Phil and Tamwar take a cookery course together?

    I absolutely adore Eastenders it is the best show ever, I wish I lived in Albert Square, people say I look like Tiffany Mitchell, so maybe I could turn up as her long lost sister or something and shake the Mitchells up even more! But then again I think I will carry one dreaming ha ha! There is one solution to Eastenders not being on at the weekend, you can always watch the omnibus on a Sunday which I watch even though I watch it throughout the week and also BBC Iplayer! :D.

    "Hello my name is Sarah and im an Eastendersalholic!!!!!"
