Episode discussion for week commencing 6 February

Nickie | 17:30 UK time, Monday, 6 February 2012

This week on EastEnders...

Looks to us like Jack's brief has more on her mind than his custody dispute... well even Roxy would have to admit that he does scrub up well in a nice whistle...

Meanwhile, Roxy appears to be represented by Anton Du Beke. Must be doing a sideline in legal aid while he waits for the next series of Strictly... [this isn't really Anton Du Beke]

But seriously... what's going on here??

Because these look like two people who are locked in nothing but a battle against the irreconcilable forces of their own MUTUAL ATTRACTION. Is there still a spark here? And should Roxy be forgiven for behaving in a rather unsisterly fashion if she gives into it?

Now that's what we call a bridal shower

Somebody might want to brief Lucy on popular bridal traditions, because we're fairly sure that dousing a bride in hot coffee isn't one. Fortunately, Mandy is quick to adhere to a custom we're more familiar with - the Vic cat fight! Ding dong the bells are going to chime!

Heather takes on the world (in the name of love)

Heather's wedding woes grow this week as she's forced to take on her future mother-in-law AND Ian Beale. Silver lining: at least Lucy hasn't come round for a cup of tea and a natter. There's only room in this town for one bride-to-be with third-degree burns and a soiled wedding frock...

If Ray didn't think Kim's a knockout already...

.... he does now. He clearly likes 'em feisty. Do you think he's the one man in Walford who can handle the Kimbanator?

  • Comment number 8.

    Totally agree with CookieCrumble04 not sure about lucy though and where have masood family gone --- i hope they have more drama on the way ... And seriously anthony moon and amira you don't suit each other !

  • Comment number 9.

    It looks like jack's using Roxy as something does he? who has Amy?

  • Comment number 10.

    I agree with Ofcourse. Jack and Ronnie were a handsome couple. Roxy is just disgraceful. Where is her loyalty to her sister who has always been there for her? Jumping into bed with her sister's husband without a care in the world is sick.

  • Comment number 11.

    Roxy has no shame and no loyalty towards her sister. It is not the first time she has betrayed her. She is selfish.
    Roxy and Jack have no chemistry either.

  • Comment number 12.

    the tea getting thrown look so rrealistic

  • Comment number 13.

    I agree, Ronnie has always had a lot more class than Roxy. Even though Ronnie has been through so much. Well, what do you expect from Roxie - she has never had a lot between her ears, that`s why Archie left her all his money, he knew she wouldn`t take more that a year or two to lose it, so it was like taking his money with him really. And if Roxy had sex with Jack once, of course she will do it again. And I agree with those who thinks Ronnie is prettier than Roxie, her beauty looks more natural and sophisticated and she is taller as well. However, I think Roxie is the one who should get Amy.

    And Ronnie was the better character by a country mile.

    Re Jack:
    He is probably the character that Mr Kirkwood has damaged the most. He has messed up his characterization completely. It is so sad to see how many characters have been damaged by poor and inconsistent writing. Under Santer, Jack was always depicted as a very good father. When this producer took over the scripts stopped mentioning his daughter Penny, no doubt because the writers were lazy. Then they did the completely pointless plot and made him Richard's father which was unbelievable because of the condom storyline with Ronnie before that. Jack used protection with Ronnie surely he would have used it with Sam. They never made any references to Jack missing Richard and have turned him into a joke. No matter how much they try to show him committed to Amy and James before her, because they have made him the father of Richard and he never gets mentioned, Jack losses all credibility as a character. How are they going to sort out Richard? It is something that will follow the character and tint him forever.

    As for the drama with Amy that was so over the top. Amy is only moving two doors away. It's not as if Jack won't see her again.

    Shame to see Carol being anti man again: She said to Tanya: "You've got it all to come with Lauren and Abi... when their fella finds that the grass is greener somewhere else" she didn't say "you've got it all to come with Abi, Lauren and Oscar" it's as if it will only happen to the girls, as if women never break men's hearts! HUh! When Tanya said: "Me and Greg threw thousands at ours and it was over before it began" Carol says nothing about the fact that it was Tanya that cheated on Greg which ended their marriage! If EE scripts are anything to go by then I'm pretty confident that if it Tanya was a man Carol would have pointed out how he was the one who ended the marriage by cheating

  • Comment number 16.

    And when Carol said "when their fella finds that the grass is greener somewhere else" she seem to be saying it in a way that was criticising men (which is fair enough because the grass is never greener) but it's not just men who find that "the grass is greener somewhere else", women also find that "the grass is greener somewhere else" and hurt men by leaving them/cheating on them. Didn't Bianca do that when she went to Manchester?

  • Comment number 17.

    Of course Lauren didn't fail to be her usual sexist self:
    Lucy : So you find a mug to look after you That's my dad alright.
    Lauren: Yeah, well, they're all the same. Have you ever heard of a woman having a mid-life crisis?
    Actually Lauren I have heard of women having mid-life crisis!! Even if women didn't have mid-life crisis it still wouldn't mean that 'they're all the same.' Not all men have that.
    Ian is not in mid life anyway, surely he's too young at 42.
    Plus, we could say that Carol had a mid-life crisis when she went with Connor. I know it was becauase Billy had died but maybe it was a mixture of Billy dying and a mid-life crisis!

    Whenever we saw a middle aged man cheating on his wife, especially with a younger woman, he was said to be having a mid-life crisis but whenever we saw middle aged women cheating on their husbands, even with younger men, they were never said to be having a mid-life crisis.... interesting eh? So perhaps that is why we don't hear of women having mid-life crisis - but we should!

    i really want abi and jay to stay together forever because they make a really go coulpe xxx

  • Comment number 19.

    Roxy and Jack deserve each other this is the seconed time they have cheated on Ronnie. I hope when Ronnie finds out she finishes with them both. Ronnie deserves someone that will be there for her and that is not Jack or Roxy they are always there for each other.

  • Comment number 20.

    Ronnie already divorced Jack so she already finished with him before he slept with Roxy.
