This week on EastEnders: Jack's shot and Janine's in lurve

Nickie | 20:29 UK time, Friday, 2 April 2010

Kylie shoots Jack Kylie
So... Billie's former squeeze decided that if she couldn't have Billie, no one could (after shoving a poo through the door of the Jacksons as a final gesture... well if that didn't win him back, nothing will). But she didn't factor Jack's extreme manliness when calculating the angle of fire for aiming at Billie. Jack dove to protect his nephew and got shot in the process. Will he pull through? It isn't looking good and yet again the Branning/Jackson family is bracing itself for another bout of mourning. Fingers crossed for our JB.

Ryan hearts Janine and... Janine has a heart... who'da thunkit? Janine and Ryan
Was it Lancelot who said of Guinevere: "You're the most horrendous human being I've ever met in my life but I'm so completely and utterly in love with you it makes me sick"? No, it was Ryan Dean. The lucky lady in question? Ms Janine Butcher, who had inadvertently wooed her man by a mixture of casual naughtiness, con-merchantry, weeping over her aged murdered ex, and pimping him out to Roxy Mitchell while trying to bed Roxy's brother for a stake in the Mitchell Empire. Wow, when you see it all written out like that, you can see the attraction.

Anyone fancy popping down to Poxy's for a facial?
Chelsea and RoxySorry can't, I'm heading down the Queen Zit to meet Mo for a swift one and some knock-off hair extensions. Fortunately, Danny managed to sort the typo on Roxy's sign and the new beauty salon was opened. One in the face for Ronnie. But why is Danny so keen on his sister's move into the beauty trade? Is it part of his crusade to rid Walford of chipped nails and split ends? Or something more underhand? In the olden days we would have said 'answers on a postcard' but you can just type yours in the comments section below...

    OMG , I can't believe Kylie shot Jack ! I hope he doesn't die because he is one of my favourite characters! I dont think Ryan and Janine should get together. Ryan should get with Stacey and help her raise his child. There is something not right with Danny. Especially on Fridays episode because he was on the phone to Glenda! I dont actually think he's a Mitchell, he could be Ronnies other secrect son!

    jessica comment 1:if danny is ronnies sone wouldnt dat make him a mitchell

  • Comment number 3.

    claire: i no , i just realised that :D thanks x

  • Comment number 4.

    jessica:could he not have took on his dads surname though

  • Comment number 5.

    Danny could be Glenda's son with someone else and that's why Glenda left Archie, because she had an affair and knew Archie would kill her if he found out. It would explain why her son appeared after Archie died so he never met Danny!

  • Comment number 6.

    ooh the gossip and intrigue on this page! i think the only way to find out is to dye danny's hair blonde and test the family resemblance to his sisters. he'll have to wear a cowgirl outfit too. hmm... maybe there's another way to do this...

    meanwhile, i really liked the love scenes between ryan and janine, especially the 'you're the most horrendous human being i've ever met...' line. but i'm with you, jessica_grace. secretly, i just want stacey to be happy over all else! i just can't see janine in a committed relationship. is she going to give ryan a breakdown??

  • Comment number 7.

    I agree with Meg now :) that would be a very good storyline! and nickie, they should of done a DNA test ages ago now thinking about it! and I just wish that Stacey would be happy aswell! and Janine probably won't stay with Ryan for long! she dumped Billy and Barry when they didn't have enough money for her (If I remember correctly!), and she only wanted Archie for his money aswell, so what does she want Ryan for? x

  • Comment number 8.

    Looks like a great week, again!

    There is no way that Janine will become a 'normal' person now that she has declaired her love for Ryan. Janine is far too selfish and only has one thing on her mind and that is money. Besides the writers of Eastenders could not possibly make Janine 'nice' as she makes an excellent baddie. No viewer would be convinced.

  • Comment number 10.

    janines just evil and rotten and ryan will probably stop her from getting roxys money

  • Comment number 11.

    I agree with some of the other posts, that Danny may not be Archies real Son. He may not even be Glenda's son, but could be a nephew or even Toy boy that she has drafted in to get the money. Archie was no fool, and if Glenda left him he would have tracked her down to get his revenge. He would have got to know about any Son. Or any child she had to another man. Despite everything, he liked to think he was a family man, and with no other Son's to carry on his name he would never have let that one go. Danny has been sent in to play a role, so nothing he says can be believed right now.

    Dont know where they are going to go now with Janine, as she will never change. She spent a whole episode assuming that the Brannings would just let her run R&R and be grateful for it, when clearly they never would. Now she is going to work in the bookies and start another scam. Surely she has run out of places to scam now, and people to con. Nobody trusts her or belives a word she says apart from Ryan and possibly Ricky. How can a character function on the Square when they are so segregated from everybody else? She's obviously the new nick cotton, but he comes and goes which is how he gets away with it. Am interested to see how the writers will justify her staying now.

    Ruby comment 11 yep i agree with you kind of but i think danny is ronnies son not glendas.

  • Comment number 13.

    Don't you think the viewers would know if Ronnie had another secret child? I hate Danny as a character and wish he would leave. And i hope Jack pulls through - He is awesome x

  • Comment number 14.

    yep i do agree with kirsty but ronnie could have another secret child

  • Comment number 15.

    I hate Danny, I can't believe he'd do such a thing. If he IS a mitchell, he's just like his dad. I think it was yesterday, he was talking to Glenda and said 'Archie' instead of 'Dad'. I mean, that could have nothing to do with it but it'd just an idea.

    I think Ryan and Janine would be good together but I think that Ryan would be better suited with Stacey. He should also bring up the baby. I mean, wouldn't he have had a tiny inkling tat the baby might be his? I know that they are saying it is the late Bradders baby but he should still think because Bradley was a nice boy and wouldn't have cheated on Syd. He wouldn't have cheated on anybody.


    PS: Brilliant acting from all the people mentioned in my comment (: x

    I also hate the character of Danny and do not believe for a second that he is a Mitchell. He and Glenda are possibly related but not Mother and Son. If Archie had known that Glenda had a son by him she would never have been able to bring him up herself Archie was too controling. If Glenda and Danny do manage to scam Roxy out of most of her money (which I doubt) then I think it will be yet another storyline put on hold and dragged out when things are getting dull. It could be a while until we fing out who Danny really is.

    I cant believe Jack got shot!It should of been backstabbing Billie who got the bullet inside his head!

  • Comment number 18.

    I hate Danny Mitchell.....trying to con his own sister out of all her money is evil!and trying to break Ronnie + Roxy up forever is insane....he is just like his Bad Dad!LOL
