(Christmas) Episode discussion for week starting 19 December

Nickie | 11:35 UK time, Monday, 19 December 2011

It's CHRRRIIIIIIIIIIIISSSTTMMAAASSSS week. And look! Bianca's back!

How cute is Christmas-tree Tiffany CRUSHING Bianca with the relief of having her back. But... how happy will B be when she finds out what Ricky's been up to while she's been gone *glares tellingly at Mandy*

 

And if that doesn't get you in the Christmas spirit. Perhaps these festive pics of Patrick and Mo will....

Meanwhile, this little Elf seems very pleased with what Santa has brought her for Christmas...

But it isn't smiles for everybody. Jean looks like she really needs a Christmas miracle right now. Is this the beginning of a serious downward spiral? We hope not

Yusef gets Zainab to the airport. Will he prise her away from Walford? Can we form a flash mob and wrestle her back? Don't do it Zainab!

Finally, one question remains to be answered - who's stalking phil?. Phil's hot on their trail. Revealed soon! Who do you think it is??

Discuss these and anything else that springs to mind about this week's eps here!

    i think it will be Shannon because she after him, he got Dennis killed

  • Comment number 5.

    I have said all along I think it is Denise or Jay. As Denise gets a present from the Stalker I will stick with Jay. It will soon all become clear.

  • Comment number 6.

    i think the stalker is patrick

  • Comment number 7.

    I am really starting to miss Ryan. Come back please?!!!!!!

  • Comment number 8.

    I actually think the stalker is Derek to be honest. He's so creepy and I think that he can actually beat Phil. Lol.

  • Comment number 9.

    I have absolutely no idea who is stalking Phil because it could be anyone. Phil has given a hard life for nearly everyone in the square.
    YYYAAAYYYY !!!!! Bianca's back! I wonder what she'll be up to...
    Zainab NEEDS to fight back quickly and Masood needs to check behind his door if he wants to keep his son in the square.
    I feel soooo sorry for Jean but at least she has Kat on her side. And I soooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo hope that Stacey comes back xx ... We miss you Stacey x.

  • Comment number 10.

    I hope stacey comes back!!!!! and Ryan.

  • Comment number 11.

    i think that the stalker is danise.
    i hope zainab will leave yusef and she will live hapily ever after with ALL her family.

    love
    EASTENDERS

  • Comment number 13.

    I hope EE never end best story lines love this Xmas Story line , want Stacey and Ryan and Peggy !!!!! and dont ant Pat to leave !!!!!!! 

  • Comment number 17.

    Jonnyboy68, spot on! Zainab is like a completely different character now! She has always been a big mouth, very stubborn and sometimes difficult, but never stupid, so what happened now? Just a little while ago she wouldn`t let Yusef anywhere near her family, and now she married this man who is a cold blooded murderer and let him isolate her from her children and her husband and to control and abuse her. She is being so stupid that, once again, I don`t feel sorry for her when I probably should.

    I have been away on holiday in new york so have missed several episodes gonna catch up tonight looking forward to this weeks leading up to Christmas always my favorite time in Eastenders would be better if the Christmas day ep was in two parts but good they have a ep on Christmas eve didn't think they would where its a Saturday anyway merry christmas everyone enjoy eastenders

  • Comment number 19.

    Amira's return has been a total wasted opportunity, she has been back 3 months and we've had to endure her deluded plans to get her gay estranged husband back. She has become totally unsympathetic , I hope she leaves very soon. Plus another couple were ruined for the sake of it, Chryed. Can Eastenders not have one couple that stays together, constant affairs, break ups are boring. Ricky cheating on Bianca yet again had me rolling my eyes. Plus Masood & Zainab's divorce was very quick and totally unrealistic.

    lovin the storylines and lookin forward to the xmas explosive episodes in particular. really lookin forward to more feuding between derek and phil. hope derek stays in ee as his character is becoming very interesting. would love to see him and peggy clash lol

  • Comment number 22.

    OMG I cant believe that Zainab and Yusef are leaving to Karachi. Masood needs to stop kissing Jane in every scene and help Kamil and Zainab. I am soo happy that Bianca is back Xmas wouldnt be the same with out her

  • Comment number 23.

    WHY IS THERE NOT AN EPISODE ON NEW YEARS EVE THAT'S STUPID I TAKE IT ONE OF THE EPISODES [PROBABLY FRIDAYS] WILL BE BASED ON NEW YEARS EVE DAY AND NIGHT SO WHY NOT ACTUALLY PUT IT ON NEW YEARS EVE INSTEAD OF THE NIGHT BEFORE ??? THE CHRISTMAS EPISODE BETTER BE BETTER THAN LAST YEARS IT WAS GOOD BUT ONLY FOR A SPECIAL NOT A CHRISTMAS EPISODE AND THIS YEAR THEY BETTER BRING BACK WHERE THE CHARACTERS SING AROUND THE CHRISTMAS TREE IN THE SQUARE AND THE TENSION BETWEEN THE CHARACTERS BUILD THIS WAS A TRADITION IN EASTENDERS AND LAST YEAR IT GOT TAKEN AWAY.I WILL RATE THE CHRISTMAS DAY EPISODE OUT OF TEN I THINK I ONLY GAVE LAST YEARS A SIX SO BRING ON THIS YEAR AND MAKE IT THE BEST EVER

  • Comment number 24.

    ava sawyer, Amira returned to be a part of "Yusef vs the Masoods" storyline. Yusef hates Zainabs family and his plan was to isolate her from her husband and children and make them suffer. And he convinced Zainab that he wants her to kiss and make up with her gay son, to bury that feud, but really he was doing everything in his power to break Syed and Christian up. And that is why Amira re-appeared. And the actress who plays her was up for it as well because she failed to become a pop and movie star. And yes, I agree, for a change, EE should show us at least ONE good looking nice couple, a beautiful love story that gonna last- unlike all the others.

  • Comment number 26.

    Why oh Why can't EastEnders have just one happy Christmas and new year instead of it being so flipping depressing .
    We have had to put up with horrible storylines concluding over Xmas for the past 25 odd years .Writers pull your fingers out as i for one am fed up of people dying , B&B's catching fire and people getting divorced Give us a happy xmas story please

  • Comment number 27.

    im really looking forward to bianca returning not been the same without her lol carnt wait to see how the yusef and zainab story line ends have to say well done to them both for the fab performance and great acting

  • Comment number 28.

    look i dont like the idea of u killing massood!!! why not kill someone like ian beal hes a fool! haha..i seen an advert on tv and i hope its not pointing towards masoo being killed trying to see his son :( thats a christmas shocker.......but then again,,thats what the bbc is good at...great job guys...mery christmas xxx

  • Comment number 29.

    im so haps that bianca is back but yusef needs to hurry up(sorry to spoil it peeps) and die!!!!!!!!!!!!
    i adore patrick's outfit, it's amazing LOOOOOOOOOOOOOOL
    whens christian coming back?????? i love him and syed as a couple xx xx

  • Comment number 30.

    The official list of suspects are: Michael, Janine, Rainie, Jack, Jay, Ian, Mandy, Alfie, Ben, Denise, Lola and Heather.
    I personally think that Denise is the suspect because the guy who was killed was her husband and she believed Phil was being racist towards Patrick earlier.

    The other possible suspect (I think) is Ben: when something doesn't go his way, he always seems to try and get revenge eg when Christian rejected him, Ben lied that Christian had touched him. Phil wouldn't accept it when Ben came out and Ben hasn't tried to get revenge yet. Could this be revenge? Also, the stalker storyline is supposed to be the next big story for the Mitchells so maybe Ben does have something to do with it.

  • Comment number 31.

    I personally think that the yusef , masood+zainab situation is getting ridiculous!!It needs to hurry up and come all out!

  • Comment number 32.

    what has happened to zainab really want that storyline to stop it just keeps dragging and dragging it on

    i reallly want to find out who is STALKING PHIL???????????

  • Comment number 33.

    I think the stalkers ben as theres 12 options, it wouldnt be alfie, rainie has left and its still going on, derek wasnt there when it started and ben is always attention seeking

  • Comment number 34.
