The aftermath

Poor Jay spends a night sleeping rough, and rummages through the bins outside The Vic to find his breakfast! Will Kat help him out?

Jay and Kat

Hitting rock bottom

Phil chucks Jay out onto the street! It seems that although he's a Mitchell by name, according to Phil he isn't a Mitchell by nature...

Jay and Phil


Sharon's shoulder

Sharon heads over to her old pal Ian's house to check up on him. She finds him in a pretty bad state, will Ben's arrest tip him back over the edge?

Ian and Sharon

Who'll bottle out?

Lauren finds herself with an empty house, so the whole gang decide to play... spin the bottle?! Err, is that Whitney kissing Joey? What will Tyler have to say about that? Looks like there's going to be photographic evidence!

Whitney, Joey, Fatboy and Lucy

Stay at home mum?

Has Janine had enough of motherhood already? She makes a snap decision to return to work. Should she take a wee bit more maternity leave?


All eyes on Jay

The whole of Walford finds out about Jay's part in Heather's murder, and boy does he know about it! Is there anyone he can turn to?

    I dont like Lucy acting in EE,Tyler another none sense actor,Witney is going down slow...EE should be more focused to the good acters and EE should care about our coments,sorry but i have that felleng that they bring cheapr acts for cheap money sometimes,again sorry but u should care about us because we are the ones who vote for u and watching u.

    I Totally Agree Wiv The Person Above Me And Yh Lucy AKA Hettie Bywatter Is Not A Good Actress(No Offence) So Ermm.. I Fink Eastenders Should Bring More Attention To The People That CAN Act Such As Cora,Max etc!:) But Still ❤❤❤❤❤ EE!:):D

    Poor Jay and nice fit Sharon and kat look very hoot

  • Comment number 7.

    Whitney and Joey SHOULD NOT get together! Tyler and whittney are the perfect match and so are lucy and joey!!! And jay should tell the police about ben otherwise he will get the blame! I think hetti bywater is a fantastic actress, loved the ian come back storyline so far!!!!

  • Comment number 8.

    Lots of sympathy here for Jay. Will the Albert Square residents feel the same, we wonder...?

  • Comment number 9.

    Poor Jay!

    The new Lucy is a truly awful actress - I'm sorry, I'm sure she's a lovely girl but she only has one expression. I want the old mean beady-eyed Lucy back!

    Awh that is so sad for Jay! Poor Jay, just because of Ben he has to take it from Phil. I thought Phil liked him, better than Ben, not Jay's fault Ben told everyone. Leave it to Ben to be conniving. Can't believe it! Thank God Ben is gone, can't wait! Hate seeing him in the show everyday. Makes me so angry! But what did Jay do in Hev's murder, he tried to stop Ben he should tell everyone he tried to stop Ben and then they would stop accusing him. Looks like Sharon is here to stay! Love her son Dennis he is so cute!! Its good to see someone is helping Ian out, someone that actually cares. Most of Eastenders cast hate Ian and then they show fake sympathy so they get to know whats going on?? Wish Grant comes back! Yes Whitney and Joey! Joey is so fit!! I don't think Lucy is a bad actress she is better than the one they had before, ooh looks like Lucy is getting jealous!! Catfights coming up! Janine should just stay at home if she doesn't let anyone near Scarlett who is going to look after her. Janine should learn to trust. Hope Kat helps Jay, especially as Abi is coming back soon! Looks like an interesting week.

    Jamie Borthwick (Jay) is a good actor. He is one of those gems that has slowly come to the foreground during his time on the show, and has grown with the audience. Natalie Cassidy springs to mind, as we also saw her grow onscreen from her trumpet playing youth to her lead roles with the late Wendy Richard. I hope the scriptwriters know what they have in their midst and concentrate on giving him a long future of decent storylines. I love the way his character is balanced between bad boy and good boy.... and I feel that the two women in his life could push him either way. Abby would take him down a road where he could make something of himself, wheras Lola would drag him down to the darkside and turn him into a 'proper Mitchell'.
    In response to others comments about bringing back Grant... I agree. With Sharon back, the return of Grant (and Peggy) would certainly reignite old fires and open old wounds.
    Oh... and someone needs to burn Ians beanie hat.

  • Comment number 12.

    Yep I agree with PaganLyle that Jay can go either way! I wouldn't mind seeing both sides. But I think the Mitchell bit is going to be a bit too far fetched, as Phil kicked him out! He is most likely to hate Phil for what he did! OMG did you see the pictures where Patrick is being mean to him! Tell him straight out Jay and put the record straight! Grant and Peggy, Billy should phone Grant up or something and say 'Guess what! Sharon is back!' And Peggy comes with Grant that would just be awesome! Someone defo needs to burn Ian's beanie hat, although I think it is going to be Sharon because she is helping him out a lot!

  • Comment number 13.

    I think u should all learn how to spell. Ian is doing great at the minute. Not much line learning going on there. Fantastic!

  • Comment number 14.

    jay better not leave after phil kicks him out he is just gawjus and its the only reason why i watch it but i still love the eastenders :) xxx

  • Comment number 15.

    I find some of the comments about Hetti kinda harsh. I think she is a really good actress, especially for her age, i certainly wouldn't be able to act like that, and i'm only 1 year younger than Hetti. It is my dream to act on eastenders and if I had only been on for the amount of time that Hetti had been on for, I wouldn't be kinda hurt. Even if actresses/actors are meant to ignore harsh comments, they may still take some of them into heart!!!!

  • Comment number 16.

    i feel so sorry for jay. he should tell the truth. everyone has turned against HIM for what ben has done.

  • Comment number 17.

    Ever since his father died, Jay used to consider the Mitchells his adopted family and he used to call Ben his brother before Ben murdered Heather. Jay betrayed Heather and Shirley to please Phil, and Phil showed his appreciation by throwing him out like used milk bottle! Jay's troubles are not over yet though. He will have to explain to Andrew and to the police why he was covering for Ben, too!

  • Comment number 18.

    aww i feel well sorry for jay and he has been like a son to phil and phil throws him out!!

  • Comment number 19.

    I feel so sorry for Jay as he's just been bullied by the Mitchells.
    Moving away from that storyline and moving on to Cora. Is it just me or do you have a feeling that Cora's secret child isn't really dead and it will turn out to be Sharon? Sharon was adopted by Den and Angie so her real mother was never known. What's the betting her real mother turns out to be Cora and Tanya will be Sharons half sister!...

  • Comment number 20.

    i feel sorry for phil i mean look he hasn't had the best life and various people have goes at him if you had a child you would understand no matter how much tht they have hurt u they are still a part of you and you will carry on loving them for the rest of your life. no matter what so people who have children should understand and not have goesat phil fair enough he hasn't been the nicest man ever but still he is just helping his son and for those who have goes at him you should'nt at the end of the day it is just actors and they are given a role and people who direct there hate to the mitchell family aren't right aim it at the writers

  • Comment number 21.

    Enjoyed the Beale meets gm tomato - first time outside reality?

  • Comment number 22.

    Hetti Bywater (Lucy Beale) is an amazing actress! Poor Jay, I just want to hug him! I want to kick Ben hard. Whitney and Joey should NOT get together, Whit and Tyler are beautiful together, as are Lucy and Joey. Also, I am loving the Ian Beale storyline at the moment. I would love to act on EastEnders, it would make all my dreams come true, even if I was one of the extras!

  • Comment number 23.

    MandyMoo26, Sharon can't be Cora's long lost daughter. Sharon's real mother is known as well as her adoptive mother and it's not Cora. Also, Sharon is 43, and Cora's daughter is supposed to be about 5 years older than that.
    philmitchellrules: I know you like the character, but do you seriously think that what Phil did to Jay was right?! And that he was right to cover for Ben? Unbelievable! And also, what happened to Ian is partly Ian's own fault, but mostly Phil's fault as well! And we all know it's just the actors playing characters, however most (not all!) of story lines are real-life problems.

  • Comment number 24.

    Hehe this week is looking EPIC!
    PeganLyle/EastendersFan: O-: how could you that (burn Ians beanie hat - how could you even think of that >:(! )
    Whitney and tyler are perfect together - Why would Lucy let Whitney kiss her Bf in the first place.
    Phil is unbelivable - I think Jay should go and tell the coppers bout ben killing Heaver - that way he would'nt go to jail and Ben Phil (hopefully not Ian and his Beany hat aswell ;.; )
    Also I think Kat should help Jay I mean you can see he's desperate - or Max and Tanya.
    Janine is worrying a bit to much about Micheal and Scarlett

    Hehe people do you know I love cheese ^.^
    Luv EE so far p.s Lucy's actor acts perfectly fine :L

  • Comment number 25.

    I think EE producers have picked the wrong actor to play Jack. Scott Maslen has "class" and "elegance" written all over him and Jack has none of that, he is just after every skirt! Even when Ronnie was around, he cheated on her with her sister and then with Sam Mitchell and now that Ronnie has divorced him and went to prison this has become ridiculous, it looks like he just wants to get into bed with as many women as possible. It is rather disgusting to watch.

  • Comment number 26.

    16/8/2012/......Tonights episode was amongst other things psychologically spot on.Said actors being Steve Mc Fadden, Linda Henry and Adam Woodyat. Exceptional Acting from Steve and Linda well done tonight.

  • Comment number 27.

    @ Alvin: I know! Very well done to all of them! I am really disappointed though that Shirley was actually about to forgive Ben and Phil! And I still wonder why did Phil throw Jay out - Jay has been covering for Ben and it was Ben who went to the police to confess! I used to be annoyed by Marsden, but now I can see why she wanted to put Phil behind the bars so badly, he belongs there. Along with Ben.

  • Comment number 28.

    I feel really sorrY for Jay, it was Ben in the wrong not Jay :( in some way yeah Jay should have said something but with a person like Phil on his back can you blame him?

  • Comment number 29.

    sorry but gotta say it...i really dont like the new lucy...cant act for toffee......and the whole thing of her being so nasty to her own father when he is mentally ill...is absolutely disgusting....speaking from experience...my own father has been in hospital a few times because of his mental health problems...the first time being when i was 17...and i felt nothing but love and care for my father...whats she tryin to do??get him to top himself?? or should i say what are the scriptwriters trying to make her do??? absolutely disgusted...and cant see it doing her acting(term used very loosly) career 2 much of a favour either.
    Also poor old jay needs some luck...something good to happen...poor soul been getting 1 bad thing after another since he came into EE...but sadly with him bein involved in hev's murder...looks like him n phil should be goin down for accessories to murder.....if not...why not????? just dont seem like there is much in the way of things being researched properly and things happening as they would do. Have watched EE since the beginning religiously (not dot branning like) and can honestly say i think the quality of the show is at its poorest....new scriptwriters pls and a replacement for lucy.

    yh i feel rlly sorry for poor jay he couldnt hel waht happened it aint his fault x

  • Comment number 31.

    Wounder if billy will forgive jay about heavers death i hope so his a good kid

  • Comment number 32.

    Some of the comments on here are ridculous, some people read the magazines and some obviously don't.

    Lucy and Joey are set to do a long standing relationship just like the old Sharon and Grant one. Hettie can act, I didn't like her at first but she's done really well lately so leave her alone. Sharon can't act and never could, she's wooden.

    Peggy will never come back, she retired. Grant will never come back (not in the shape of Ross Kemp anyway) he has far better things to do on TV than soaps.

    As for the Cora/Sharon/Tanya storyline, yeah we all saw it in the magazines so having a feeling about it is a bit off when you probably read it before commenting.

    Eastenders will be better without Ben, he wasn't aliked character, ther was too big a jump from the little kid who went into jail and the guy who came out.

    Who cares if Phil threw Jay out? He did him a favour, Phil is the one who'll be left alone (surely Shirley will leave him now) and Billy will take Jay in.

  • Comment number 33.

    Feel so sorry for Jay! Not his fault-just in the wrong place at the wrong time! Anyway, can't wait for tonight's episode! Great week!

  • Comment number 34.

    i hope everything works for the best for jay! (i also hope he doesn't go 2 prison)
