How will Stacey leave Walford?

Post categories:

Lou | 11:20 UK time, Tuesday, 30 November 2010

Walford's seen it's fair share of murders, its been home to a lot of villains, and its housed countless secrets and lies. However, the historic East End borough is no longer able to accommodate Stacey Branning and her exploding secret!

As you all know, after six years of highs and lows, Stacey's leaving Albert Square. *blub blub*

In her tumultuous six years she's grown from a mouthy teen to... erm... a mouthy mum. And she's had a few bumps along the way (and so did Archie Mitchell!)

How will Stacey Branning leave Albert Square?

So, how do you think Stacey will exit? Perhaps she'll catch a cab uttering: "Just take me anywhere", or maybe the cops will cart her off for killing Archie? NOOOOOOOOO!

Or do you think she'll have a happy ending?! She could win the lottery, flee to an LA mansion with Ryan and Lily, and multiple butlers could cater for their every need. In your face, Janine!

Share your exit story for Stacey...

You can also voice your theories on our Twitter and Facebook. Just tweet using the hashtag #staceysexit.

Get your creative caps on and let us know!

While I'm at it - what are your fave ever Stacey moments? Not that there are many. Yeah right.

    I think Janine will kill of Stacey I think! Leaving Ryan with sole custody of Lily!

    Don't want Stacey to leave though :(

    Or Lauren and Janine will plot together, and get Stacey sent down for Archies murder!

  • Comment number 2.

    Max is going to take her to the airport. and she goes off for a new life on the other side of the world, So she will not be arested by the cops. She will get away with murder i think.
    But one more thing is that stacey and becca are both to blame for bradley'death. even though Archie micthell is a nasty man.

  • Comment number 3.

    i think lauren will go to the police finally. stacey comes to the square with ryan to confront janine, (ryans leaving her)
    but when she see's janine, she hears police sirens, because of her disorder she thinks its for her and makes a run for it with baby lily.
    ryan comes after her, fearing he'd lose lily, stacey realised he wont leave either one of them go without a fight and persuades him to join her.
    they both leave together.. no one dies sadly, but janine is on the war path! nobody steals her man :D x

    i really dont want stacey to leave because she is my favourite charecter and i think she leaves with ryan and lilly and her mum because they might want a clean start like a proper family

  • Comment number 5.

    I think Janine will seek a unique way of revenge to punish Stacey! :) I also think that everyone will find out about Archie before she dies/leaves. :)

  • Comment number 6.

    I really dont want stacey to leave she is one of my favorite character! But i think that horrible Jelous Janine call's the police and tells them she killed Archie Michell, then when the police arrive they take her away and she goes to prison.

    Stacey has to go down as one of the show's all-time greats. From reading spoilers it seems it'll be a dramatic exit! One one hand I'm sad Lacey is leaving but on the other hand I'm delighted she will get to try new roles and different things as she is so talented - over 30 awards in 5 years proves this. As for Stacey's exit - we all know Lauren has the recordered message of her admitting she killed Archie Mitchell. Max thinks it's deleted but it's not. I think Lauren and Janine will team up. Lauren is determined to clear Bradley's name and Janine turns evil with Ryan spending so much time with Stacey and Lily. I think in a packed Vic on Christmas Day - Lauren and Janine will play the message, in front of Ronnie and Roxy, everyone will find out Stacey killed him. Stacey will try and go on the run put the police will catch her and she will go to prison. This also leaves the door open for Lacey to reutrn in the future too! So excited to see how Stacey leaves - I bet it's dramatic!

  • Comment number 8.

    Janine is going to kill Ryan with poison (in the food) and i think Lauren will tell someone or the police that Stacey has kill Archie ! :)

  • Comment number 9.

    It will be a shame to see Lacey go, but I can imagine she wants to do something else after all this time.
    The only thing I do hope is that she is not killed off, the amount of people dying is starting to be very unrealistic and to be honest, it starts to annoy me, and doesn't do the show any good.
    I do hope the scriptwriters can think of a fitting end to Lacey's time on Eastenders, but killing the character of seems to me the 'easy way out of the show'.

  • Comment number 10.

    However way, Stacey leaves I don't want it to be in handcuffs, I don't want anyone knowing about her secret besides the people who already know (maybe Kat) especially that wicked B**ch Janine.
    My conspiracy is that Stacey can't handle the fact that Ryan still wants to be with Janine even though she attempted to poison her, him, Lilly and Pat. Also she finds out that Lauren had recorded her confession and so she panics and goes to Kat and asks her for money so that she can escape from Walford. Kat wants to find out why (as she previously wanted to find out when she ran away the first time). Kat keeps asking and says that she isn't going to help her until she tells her why, as she is scared what she has done. Then Stacey burts out her confession and a understanding Kat helps her and Stacey goes into a cab and leaves Albert Square. *Duff.*Duff.*Duff.*Duff (Julia's Theme)

    I hope she does not die and I doubt she will as Jean is returning to the square soon after. I think she will be found out by the Police and try to leave with Jean but leave Lily with Ryan and flee...probs wrong but its my theory :P xxx

  • Comment number 13.

    hiyyyaaa i realy dont want her to leave all the good ones are going out its not fear i most probily wont watch eastenders untill she comes back or if she not going to come back i know for defo i wont be watching

  • Comment number 14.

    I really want stacey to go with ryan but i love stacey shes exacly what i want to be when i am older she has inspired me so much !!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • Comment number 15.

    Janine will blackmail Lauren and Stacey will be forced to do a runner or get sent down for Archie's murder.

  • Comment number 16.

    I think that ryan and stacey will run away and kat MIGHT!!!! follow!!!

    :0 :) ;)

  • Comment number 17.

    She might just leave and someone will come after her, after she discusses why she's going and then go then (DUFF DUFF DUFF DUFF DUFF...)

  • Comment number 18.

    I would love Stacey to get away with it; she should really be with Ryan, go to Spain and live happily ever after with Janine racing to the airport to watch them fly off, cut to Ryan and Stacey and Lily on the plane, all smiles - doof doof

  • Comment number 19.

    i think that stacey should get away with the murder, (archie was actually asking for it ) i would love for stacey ryan and lily to stay in albert square, but they wont. the best ending would proberbly be like stacey and ryan going to tell janine that ryan is leaving her, and then when they (stacey ryan lilly) go to the airport, janine should follow them and just as they are boarding the plane stacey should tell janine that she killed archie ,,, thenn theyy fly off.Of course janine would have no proof of what stacey has said !!!! :) Goo stacey :) i would like them to come back in like 5 years time just to laugh at janine ,, I LOVE KAT, ALFIE STACEY, RYAN ,RONNIE,CHRISTIAN AND JANEE YOUU AREE ALL BRILL :) XXXXX

    if they do that it would be a good scripted

  • Comment number 21.

    i think stacey and ryan will run off together

  • Comment number 22.

    Well... I think that Janine will kill baby Lily, (though I oppose strongly against this) and because Stacey is bi-polar, she will end up doing something completely reckless ending up with her being killed.
    I read somewhere that Tanya kills Stacey for Lauren... but I don't think that's true.
    Sean Slater is meant to be returning on X-Mas day, too! :)

  • Comment number 23.

    I HOPE that Stace and Ryan will run away together, leaving Janine to be a lonely old evil woman!! But i THINK that they'll kill her off or that she'll be taken down 4 archie's murder!

  • Comment number 24.

    I think it will all invole,stacey,ryan,lily,janine,lauren,and sean as we all know rob kazinsky is supposedly returning some time around chirstmas ;D

    Janine will head into town after finding out ryan and stacey are sleeping
    together, she'll go to a bar get drunk and end up sleeping with a stranger(sean).
    The next day Janine will return to find that stranger,sean in wolford obviously not knowing who they are proberly,Janine snaches a sneaky kiss with him in the park while no ones looking, she'll watch sean ahead and meet stacey in the square. her face will turn to terror as she see's staceys big brother give lil a hug.

    Overall i think the plot will contain,i think janine will do somthing to the car that there getting in sean knowing but not having enough time to tell them,sean driving after stacey to tell her but she thinks its janine trying to kill her so you gose faster and ends up in a ditch.
    but at the end credits you will see them both get out and make there way on to a path.

    I hope she does not die

  • Comment number 26.

    I want stacy ryan and the baby to fly away with eacother x x

  • Comment number 27.

    Whatever happens she needs to stay alive so that she can come back.
    Turns out she didnt kill achie buts janine has killed archie but janine changed things to make it look like stacey did. Everything gets to stacey and all the evidence points to her and she thinks that theres no way out(lauren shows other people the evidence and some other things). She goes to turn her self in but ryan comes. He hears janine talking to erm that lady person (who told ryan about janine locking him in the erm frigde)that janine infact killed archie. Ryan tells stacey and stacey's like whose gonna believe me, what evidence points to janine. they both decide to run away but janine comes in the way, but they both go eventually... and janine ends up like physcially injured, wakes up in hospital but claimes she doesnnt know what happened when she does.

    has a fuzzy memory of what happened to stacey and ryan

  • Comment number 28.

    i thing stacey n lilly should go away with ryan n live happy ever after n get away with murder arcie had it coming to him i think stacey should have some happaness in her live cos she has had some high n some lows but i dont want lacey to leave she is my best cariter dont want u to leave lacey hope u have had fun doing eastenders

  • Comment number 29.

    I think stacey will decide to leave with her mum and charlie, because of lauren. Lauren will show her the recording of her on her phone. Ryan decides to go with her, but changes his mind to be with janine. But janine finds out, and plots to poision or stab ryan.

    hmmm.. what do you think ??

  • Comment number 30.

    Your Mind Just Could Not Comprehend On How Much I Love Lacey Turner. Her Departure Should Be With Lily And Ryan. Maybe They Get Married Secretly On Christmas Day?! Or Maybe Yesterdays Fling (29/11/10) Ends Up That She Gets Pregnant Again, So Ryan Takes Her Away?! If The Ending Isn't A Happy One, Then I Will Eat My Own Shoe In Disgust. MAYBE PEGGY FINALLY PLUCKED UP THE COURAGE TO WALK BACK ON SET AND TAKE STACEY TO THE POLICE! Or That Could Be A Dream I Had.. Either Way It Was Funny With Little Barbara Dragging Lacey Up Turpin Road. But Getting Back To The Point... Stacey Deserves An Enjoyable Ending For The Square To Remember. x Lots Of Love From ME x

    I reckon that pat tells Ryan that she's already killed one husband and he finds out that janine's a scheming witch on that reason he divorce's her when stacey leaves that Ryan will able to be in her life for a relationship what I reckon that stacey and Ryan will tie the knot and RYAN WILL DROWN JANINE

  • Comment number 33.

    I really don't want Stacey to go! i want Janine to walk into Ryan and Stacey in bed and start shouting at all of them and makes Ryan choose between her and Stacey and Lily and Ryan looks at both of them and he goes to Stacey and Lily then she starts telling him that she never loved him then Kat starts laughing at Janine saying no one will ever love her while Ryan and Stcaey are kissing with Lily smiling and then outside it is snowing- Stacey, Lily and Ryan go out side the Queen Vic into a car and drive off then i don't know i really hope Ryan and Stacey will be together xxxx i love EastEnders xxxx

  • Comment number 34.

    I am pretty sure the gorgeous Lacey Turner will not be killed off. She has been an excellent actress over the years and one of the best characters. The door will be left open for her to hopefully return one day.

  • Comment number 35.

    I think one of Stacey's fave moments is not long ago when she gives Janine the long overdue hiding and rubs her face in the mud. I didn't see that coming.
    She isn't going to get away with the murder is she...Laurens going to shop her. Shame though.
    Send her to prison and then let her out in 6 months on good behaviour so she can come back conscience free and get with Ryan.

  • Comment number 36.

    Stacey, Isn't to blame for Archies death to be honest. Yes, Stacey hit him with the Queen Vic statue but Becca called the police about Bradley thinking it was Bradley who killed Archie ;) Like the story line stated, Stacey only done it because she had anger for Archie because he raped her!
    So I think Stacey will get a good send off, Ryan and Stacey with baby Lily run away together! Honestly, by the way it looks with Ryan and Stacey now it wouldn't suprise me! It's so cute!
    I personally don't want Stacey to leave eastenders as she is a GREAT actress, and one of my faviroutes. I do wish her all the best of luck though :)

  • Comment number 37.

    Okay, So I was thinking right. At this moment in time Ryan and Stacey have some secret thing going on right? So in the storyline Ryan would either have to end the passionate moments with Stacey or go with Stacey.
    Which then means Ryan would have to leave eastenders too, It kind of all adds together. You can see Ryan and Stacey love eachother, and want to be together. So either Stacey's not leaving, Or Ryan leaves with her! OR Stacey get's killed off because honestly I can't see Ryan leaving.
    I can't wait to see what storylines are coming up!

  • Comment number 38.

    I think stacey should go on the run again because lauren goes should go te police but i think she should tell ryan about killing archie but LEAVE lily with ryan because i think ryan and stacey are proper lush together but staceys leaving
    and and i think before stacey leaves her and ryan should have an affair and then like stacey tell jannie so ryan and jannine can get a divorse i hate jannie so much so they should get a divorse then it can be like ryan and lily together then ryan should go out with dawn swan if she comes back

  • Comment number 39.

    dont let ryan leave ryan is gorgeous and if he leaves i dont think ill watch the programe anymore i want them to be together but stacey is going and i love her too shes an amazing actress but if she has to ryan and stacey got something going on then jannie could walk in divorse ryan and eveything but ryan dont care then stacey goes because of lauren and then but dont take lily let ryan stay with lily and then ryan and lily together then if dawn swan comes back her nd ryan should get together or ryan and roxy not that evil cow jannine

  • Comment number 40.

    i thing stacey will leave at christmas i think jannine will find out that she killed archie and hand her into the police leaving ryan with lily

  • Comment number 41.



  • Comment number 42.

    stacey,ryan and lily run away from janine but max sees stacey running with ryan and says to her 'i love you'
    max then kicks ryan and takes stacey with him
    janine on the other hand tracks down ryan and make a ring of fire with ryan inside
    vanessa hears the shouting and kissing upstairs and takes lily who was eating and kidnaps her
    stacey then hits max on his head nd runs away in a pursuit to find lily
    ryan is still conered and shouts for help, whitney who was stood up by connor sees him and spreads water janine reacts by takin g a jeep from the car lot and trying to run ryan over
    lauren follows vanessa to the canal and decides to ring stacey but her phone is in maxs so he runs to stop vanessa
    pat goes in to her car and stops in front of janine giving ryan time to flee he sees max rushing to the canal he goes with him
    janine is now calmed down by pat but later on she kills pat
    lauren in the mean time causes a diversion stopping vanessa
    stacey rushes to find lily and nearly gets run over b max she sees max and runs away ryan is bambozzled
    ran goes out and tells stace that lily is in the canal they run therre
    with max close behind
    max sees vanessa and pushes her in the canal
    stacey tells ryan about max and ryan confronts him with lauren coming in the middle
    meanwhile stacey is setting up a boat and rides along the canal with lily

    doof doof doof doof doof doof

  • Comment number 43.

    I think Janine will find out that Stacey killed Archie and phone the police on her, but I think Lily may stay on the show or she gets taken into care because I've heard that Ryan gets poisoned by Janine so he might die, so there'll be no one to look after Lily unless Janine takes her!

  • Comment number 44.

    i love stacy and ryan they are my two favourites , ryan is so hott (L) i dont want stacey to leave i want her to stay on and be with ryan bcos i hate janine , ryan is far too good for her ! i want stacey,ryan and lily to leave and i want ryan to leave a note for janine sayen i never wanted you or something like that xx

  • Comment number 45.

    i really dont want stacey to die, i would rather he leave with lilly and ryan, and come back for a couple of episodes later on, to visit her mum (jean), and come back to see whats happening, like kat did but obviously not come back for good, i would like this to happen as it is a good way to go out of the show.
    so stacey is about to leave country, ryan chases after her and asks if he can come, she says yes, he goes tells janine its over im leaving with stacey, gets his bags and goes with Stacey and his daughter lilly.

    then they come back for a couple of episodes.

  • Comment number 46.

    plz don.t go.stacey if she go it will be jail but i dont want like that i want 2 stay stacey

  • Comment number 47.

    i think janine will get jelous, like usuall (of stacey) and will either grasp on her and tell someone about the archie plan:/
    ryan and stacy will run away together, with lilly. because ryan still loves stacey and stacey loves him. so they want to be together. they will catch a plane from the airport, and like what stacey planned to do, go away.
    but i think before anything happens, stacey will get found and they will have to make a quick escape, ie. people will find out, so they all plan on telling the police and either one of these two, or stacey will comit suicide?:/
    but i really, love stacey. AND LILLY! (cutest thing ever):D - and dont want them to leave xxxxxxx

    i fink Janine will kill Stacey and Ryan and Baby Lily and Lauren will ring police and show stacey sayin she killed Archie

  • Comment number 52.

    Well, I've heard Lacey say that she'll love to return some day, so she obviously won't be killed off so I think Ryan will disappear mysteriously with Stacey and Lily and live in Majorca together, then Janine will recieve divorce papers a few weeks into January 2011.

  • Comment number 53.

    I really don't want Stacey to leave, I love her shes amazin, shes the reason I started watching EE.
    But if she does leave it'll have to something dramatic. But please don't kill her off, leave it open for her to come one day .....

  • Comment number 54.

    Janine should find out that ryan and stacey are having an affair together, she wil then have a massive arguement with ryan, throws him out! Ryan the decides that he wants to leave walford so him and stacey leave to live as a family, they use the money ryan has hidden from his wife and stacey gets some more money from Kat

  • Comment number 55.

    stacey and cat are in the vic meanwhile lauren sneeks in the slaters house and steals baby lilly alfie is helping ryan to wrap up christmas pressents and ryan gets a text from janine saying that she stole lilly
    but lauren actully wrote it by hacking into janines phone and another text saying she killed archie jean spots lauren out the window with lilly jean grabs lilly and takes her to stace when stacey sees lily she says im gonna go to the tube mum and jean says then im coming with you
    at that moment ryan and charlie come into the vic we do they shout
    when there by the train station janines there ryan i love you she says
    guess what janine im gonna say the oppisite he says then he walks into the train station

    duff duff duff duff duffff

    This comment has been referred for further consideration. Explain.

  • Comment number 57.

    i dont want stacy to go.
    Ive herd it cos the writers want her to go. not that she wants to go.
    if this is the case, i will not be watching eastenders again.
    its boring with out her shes a great charter.

  • Comment number 58.

    Lacey Turner (Stacey) decided to leave, she's a talented young actress and has her whole career ahead of her. There is no way the bosses at EastEnders would have wanted her to leave, she's immensely popular with viewers and her storylines are great for ratings so I highly doubt they made her leave.

    I would like Stacey to visit Bradley's favourite place, those cliffs she mentioned where she wanted to scatter his ashes, and for her go there spend some time thinking about Bradley and then head for Heathrow and jump on the next available flight to anywhere and to not look back. Bradley will be looking out for her wherever she ends up. Maybe one day it will be safe for her to come back to Walford, she'll always call East London home.

  • Comment number 59.

    I Realy dont want stacy to go :(
    She was one of the best characters in eastenders and it just ruins it if she go.
    O well, Lets see what happens next with the Love Birdss Ryan and stacy :]

  • Comment number 60.

    A happy ending in Albert square? There's more chance of finding a flying pig. And especially on Christmas day! the most tragic day of the year for the squares residents well the last time we had a happy Christmas in Eastenders was years ago when Alfie married Kat. My best bet is that the police find out it was Stacey who killed Archie, presumably Lauren tells the police and Stacey does a runner and gets hit and killed by a car. Wouldn't surprise me. It would just be too boring if Stacey went away peacefully for a Christmas special episode.

  • Comment number 61.

    All very good plots guys - certainly would all be excellent to see but I have a funny feeling the easties bosses have something unpredicable up their sleeves. I dunno if it will come out about Archie - I do want it to but also don't want Stacey to go to prison. Sean coming back? Not heard that one but maybe he comes back to avenge/help his sister? Please don't let Lily die, one baby already dies at new year that's enough!! No more deaths please... one thing is for sure I want that Evil Janine to get her cumuppance!!!!

  • Comment number 62.

    I dont want Stacey to go!!! :'(. The door is apparently left open for a future return, so i doubt its Stacey will follow husband Bradley, but it wont be boring either.

    My idea - Stacey is going to call Sean to help her after Janine finds out that Stacey killed Archie. Sean returns to save Stacey, but its now out of control. Janine has told the police and has forced Lauren to play the recording of Stacey's confession. Sean, Max, Kat, Ryan and Jean go straight to Stacey and inform her that her secret is out. Stacey panics and takes Lily. The police arrive and the group try to distract the police as Stacey makes her escape. The police spot Stacey get into a cab, but are unable to follow immediately as Sean, Jean and Max stall them. Charlie takes Kat in his cab, and the police follow him as Kat is wearing a hood and they believe she is Stacey. Ryan drives to the airport, and Janine goes after him. Stacey and Ryan meet in the airport and get on a plane. Janine arrives but is too late. Ryan, Stacey and Lily have escaped, leaving walford behind forever... :'(

    i dont want stacey to leavve if i had my way janine would leave so that ryan lily and stace could live happily ever after......


    seeing as tht is not going to happen i reakon that ryan lily and stacey end up going to majoorca like stace was going to do in the first place i mean you cant kill her off she is a favb cvharacter that could come back next year as some mum of the year woman haha

    look forward to seeing how she does go though

  • Comment number 64.

    i think stacey will run off with ryan and lily! janine will start crying asking ryan too stay and he will ask for a divorce!!!!!! that will be a good exit allthough i dont want stacey to leave :(

  • Comment number 65.

    I heard Janine exposes Stacey's secret in the Queen Vic by teaming up with Lauren and playing the recording! Then, she decides to run away, she stops a cab, sits inside and Sean's there as the cab driver! he says "Hello Stace!" *duff duff*

    next episode, stacey's gone, so jean decides theres nothing left for her anymore, so she goes away with sean!! comes back in spring 2011!!! RIGHT?

  • Comment number 66.

    i think stacey is going to leave in a cab on christmas day with ryan and baby lilly its a known fact thats what there going to do as staceys potion as stacey is left open for her so she can return at any time .. i dont think ryans going to die as janine tries to kill ryan ... i think ryan will find out that she tried to kill him and he'll leave her and go with stacey & lilly or maybe stacey and her mum will leave who knows but my bets on stacey will leave in a cab with ryan on christmas day and that will be her exit untill she decieds to return :))

  • Comment number 67.

    apparently shes not being killed off so she can return, i think that she will leave by going to mallorca but then ryan doesnt go with her so he insits on having lily, stacey says yes because she knows shes pregnant which will be his (tuesday's episode) so in maybe a couple of years time around christmas/new year the stroy line will be stacey coming back with another child which happens to be ryans! i really don't want stacey to leave though :'(

  • Comment number 68.

    I just want to take this opportunity to wish Lacey Turner(Stacey), all the best for the future in what ever she chooses to do. You are a very talented actress, who is going to go a very long way in the TV/Film industry! In regards to how her character departs the Square I reckon that evil Janine inadvertantly finds out that Stacey brained Archie with the Queen Vic bust, and calls the police! Either that or Janine runs Stacey over like she did to poor Danielle! Whatever happens I'm in no doubt that it will be a gripping episode, a fitting end to Stacey Brannings' time in Walford!

    I am hoping that Stacey, Ryan & baby Lilly will all leave together. I have the impression that Lauren will play the recording of Stacey confessing she killed Archie to Janine. And, Janine will then use this to get her revenge on Stacey. So, she can get rid of Stacey from Ryan once and for all. We, all know that Stacey confessed in prison to: Kat, Pat, Janine & Denise's sister that she was raped by Archie. So, I am sure that Janine will use Stacey motive and recording to her advantage to get Stacey put away for a very long time.

    I think that either Janine will catch them having an affair and take baby Lily in a trap, luring Stacey in and then BAM! Janine shoots Stacey and kills the baby too. Never underestimate Janine.

    Or, Ryan will get all depressed and weird because Janine starts slapping him about and start going all weird and take some of Stacey's pills, but takes too many and they are all gone. Then Stacey goes crazy and kills herself. Then we find out that Lily was with Ryan so she is somewhere in a car alone. But was Janine with them? I don't know just thinking about Janine's attitude!

    We think that Stacey should run off with Ryan and Lilly, or not leave Eastenders as she is an amazing actress! We want stacey to have a happy ending :) And it'd be funny to see Janine lose out!!!!!!!!

    Stacey doesn't get sent down for archies murder and she don't leave because of lauren.
    when she was running away recently was because of lauren but if you watched i think it was tuesday's episode when she was ' im not prepared to look over my shoulder my whole life' and she said leave me and lilly alone or i will hand myself in,
    lauren doesn't go to police.
    I personally think that ryan leaves janine and gets with stacey and they leave because they want to get away from the jealous bitch janine and they start a new life together somewhere else.
    the actual real reason she leaves is because they cannot continue the archie situation.

    Oh + jean doesnt leave too,
    someone else is going to come into eastenders as jean because shes getting tired of all this ' bipolar business'

  • Comment number 75.

    I think Sean Slater should come back and Stacey should somehow find out that Sean Killed their dad. As she doesn't want her baby to grow up next to a murderer Uncle she will leave, after Sean attacks her and she goes to hospital then runs away and disappears in a Black Cab with the Special Eastenders themetune at the end... Love Stacey hope she comes back Soon... p.s. Why are you asking us now after you probably allready have recorded the Episodes?

  • Comment number 76.

    i think janine will spike ryans drink thus killing him, pat (or someone else?) will find out and then call the police, at the same time stacey is about to run off with ryan but when she hears the police sirens she will scarper thinking its for her (shes running because Lauren told Stacey she still had the recording and was going to use it)

  • Comment number 77.

    i think she will go to the airport with ryan and ryan will not want to go with her so he goes bak to janine and therefore stacey can still come bak
    love u lacey will miss u loadsxx

    I wish Ryan and Stacey could head off with Lily away from Janine and the Square, cos I think they make a really sexy couple. I'm really gonna miss Stacey, love her character to bits...square wont be the same. Ryan is cool aswell... Shame the Bill ain't around or Lacey could have become a copper on that or something...Good luck Lacey.

  • Comment number 80.

    I totally love stacey slaters character and i dont want her to leave the square but i think its time for her to go as she cant be on this show forever.
    i think stacey should have a good send-off as shes just like the heart and soul of eastenders since peggy left.
    basically i think that stacey wants to start getting lucky so her and lily can go somewhere special so she starts on scratch cards. and wins the million pound jackpot. as she gave ryan the ultimatum in todays episode, i hope he chooses her and he goes off with them to a luxury place and he divorces janine and they just live happily somewhere just happy together.
    i think after all that hard work she deserves that :)

    love you stacey... i wish u didnt have to go but i guess its time. im gonna miss seein u on tv but im goin to enjoy the time u r on it plus u and ryan make a cute couple.

  • Comment number 81.

    i think that janine is going to find out that lauren has a way to get rid of stacey and persuades her over the course of a few episodes to get stacey sent down for archies murder so she can have ryan all to her self

  • Comment number 82.

    If Stacey ever leaves I hope they don't kill her off. They should just make her leave like Peggy's

  • Comment number 83.

    Its going to be difficult seeing lacey rurner leave, a truly extraordinary actress that has really played stacey well, wish her all the best for the future.

    Although I have to say i am disappointed that she is leaving, in addition to the fact that the new lauren is playing such a significant part in a departure. There is genuine chemistry with ryan, though no doubt she will leave on her own, i just hope she is not killed off, and that there is a way back for the actress in the future

  • Comment number 84.

    I do not wont stacey to leave she has become a strong charictor to the program and would hate to see her go. It would be nice to see a open story line so she could visuite in the future but alse be nice for her to finally have a happy ending and run off with lilly and ryan and tell all the family apart from janine.

  • Comment number 85.

    Also i would not wont stacey to be killed off i rather her have a happy ending for 1nce in her life in eastenders.

  • Comment number 86.

    i dont think stacey should be arested for killing, but i do think something good should happen to her like the whole ryan thing defo need something good to happen in the square like alot of people are saying

  • Comment number 87.

    As much as i'd like to admit, Stacey is most definitely my favorite all time character, as was Ruby and Demi, before they left. In all respect, it seems all of the 'best' characters are making their departure slowly but steadily. :(

    Either way, for the plot, i reckon Stacey and Ryan would be brilliantly suited for each other, regardless of Stacey's stubborn ways, it's clear she feels for Ryan, too. Though as much as i'd like them to be Paired, it would also result in the Departure of Hunky Ryan too, and we can't have that. ;)

    I like the sound of Janine catching Stacey and Ryan in the Act, so Stacey makes Ryan decide between them both in the realization of their mad love affair, but Ryan doesn't, so Stacey storms off, and Ryan follows. Maybe this could trigger Janine to think he has Chosen stacey, so she Kidnaps Lily, and sets the house in which Stacey and Ryan storm off to alight. Maybe this could then be the end of the two? Whilst Janine could remain unaware of the blaze Pat reads Janine like a book, and hands her in, which evidently eventually leaves Lily with Jean. Which would be like Raising another Stacey!

    she will leave with ryan and lily

  • Comment number 89.

    Ryan wont leave. Janine will hold a knife to lily and stacey! tehy will flee never to be seen again! or stacey will go all bipolar and runaway!

  • Comment number 90.

    I think ryan will leave with stace and lily. (:

  • Comment number 91.

    Stacey shouldnt be going :'( it should of been Ronniee...... I Think that Stacey Should have the best exit EVER...What would be good is theres like a little race between Stacey, Janine and Lauren.

    Lauren And Janine Are going to get to the police station, to try and get Stacey to go down for Archies murder. Lauren should run there but she forgets the recording, so she has to go back to get it.

    Stacey should be at the airport boarding her flight to freedom and Janine should be in the car. But her car should catch fire.

    Mean while Lauren is getting the recording. If that was the episode it would be amazing because know one know's if Stacey will get away and if ryan will go with her.... or there should be a shock exit for Max and he should go with Stacey :D By the way my fav ppl are Stacey, Lauren, Roxy, Ryan, an Kat There all AMAZING

  • Comment number 92.

    I want this to happen
    Lauren Tell's police about Archie Mitchell murder along with Janine.
    Stacy runs for it with Lily when she hears sirens.
    Police take her.
    Stacy leaves Lily with Ryan.

  • Comment number 93.

    I would love Stacy, Ryan and Lily to go off together for a happy ending but I think that Stacy will have to go on the run and she leaves with her mum and Lily and they go to find Sean!

  • Comment number 94.

    Dont want stacey to leave :(
    She is a great actress ,
    but she can be a bit nasty on there ;)

  • Comment number 95.

    I know Stacey isnt killed because EastEnders have offered Lacey the chance to come back later on if she wants. I hope she leaves with Ryan and Lily. I want Janine to be unhappy because she is too nasty and overpretective of Ryan.

  • Comment number 96.

    Stacey is my favourite character on EastEnders, I was SO disappointed when I found out she was leaving. I hope she has a happy exit, with Lily and Ryan, perhaps? I do hope she gets away with Archie's murder because he raped poor Stacey, and made her and Bradley's life Hell, he deserved it. I also read in a magazine that Janine trys to poison Ryan because of his fling with Stacey... I hope that's not true!
    Good luck for the future Lacey! :)

    i realy dont want stacy to leave so is so good and she is my favrite ator in the world!!!!!!!!!!! i think she will leave with ryan and lilly,then janean will get mad and her and loran will go to the plice

  • Comment number 98.

    Its going to be unpredictable so im going to guess the unexpected

    Stacey will be in bed with ryan and will be caught by lauren, lauren will be upset that stacey is with someone so quick after bradleys death that she will seek revenge by calling the police, as she is about to call the police max catches her and stops her. Stacey will be scared that she is going to be arrested that she starts to pack and leave, ryan says he still wants to be with her so he will leave janine. he goes to pack his bags before janine gets home but as he is closing his suitcase janine catches him. he tells a lie that he planned a surprise holiday. so as janine packs her bags ryan leaves and goes to stacey. when janine comes out with her packed bag she sees ryan has gone so she goes outside and sees ryan kissing stacey and go into a cab. she quickly goes and tries to stop them but fails. she then steals a car and follows them. Meanwhile max finds out about the secret message again and finally deletes all the evidence. lauren tells max why she does it and max says that stacey is young and needs to be with someone so lauren agrees not to tell the police. As ryan and stacey leave london they notice janine is following and they quickly stop. they get out to confront janine who tries to hit stacey but ryan stops her and tells her he doesnt love her and hasnt loved her for weeks. janine is angry and pushes ryan over a hill or bridge or something but he doesnt die he just gets severly injured. Janine then says good luck to stacey in having a sad lonely life. Ryan is taken to hospital and is treated - as they find out the injury isnt bad he has only broken is leg they decide that they truly do love each other and decide to go abroad however the police then enter the room and arrest stacey and tell her she is being done for murder. but it wasnt lauren or janine who said anything it was max. however in a later episode we find out that max went to a trial which we dont see as lacey turner has left but somehow stacey gets out of jail and has left with ryan, however max says it was a mistake telling the police as he was just trying to make lauren happy

    I dont think they will kill Stacey because i read in a magazibn that she might be coming back some day.
    It HAS to be something going on between Janine, Ryan + Stacey. Im a bit confused now, because i saw an advert on BBC1 today, where one saw Bianca being taken away by the police and that lauren was saying she had done something terrible.
    Oh yeah and either Kat or Ronnie will lose their baby so maybe thats got something to do with it. But I dont really think so.

    I guess it'll have something to do with lauren maybe something with bianca but i doupt it. But still... IT LOOKED SOOO EXCITING!!
    I cant wait till christmas comes!
    But to be honest i hope stacey leaves in a more exciting way than peggy did. I didnt think it was THAT sensational..
    I hope there 1 murder ( not Stacey!) like last year than was soooo good i have to say!

    Well I cant wait till christmas comes :)

    I really don't want Stacey to leave! She is an amazing actress and my favorite character! I've really enjoyed seeing her on our screens over the past 6 years and the latest story line with Ryan has been so entertaining. I would love them to have a happy ending, but I have a feeling their affair will be short lived, with Ryan being poisoned and Stacey's secret being let out the bag!

    We will miss you Stace! And good luck with the future Lacey! :-)
