'Ohh, get her!'
EASTENDERS continues on its brilliantly outrageous way. Linda has become, in the course of maybe two months, a ranting, slurring alcoholic (She got upset when her son was finally given an official diagnosis of autism- ) She necks whole bottles of vodka, pisses herself, passes out in the Square, and gets hypothermia, vanishes and comes back the next day, knowing nothing, etc. Sharon is preparing to go into hospital to give birth, which is a good thing, as she must be several months overdue by now, and on-the-run Keaunu, the baybee's toyboy dad has just turned up on the doorstep to carry her off, Coker's funeral parlour is now being run by two reformed addicts/jailbirds, the violent psycho Stuart, now a 'good guy' , and Reinie, his recently-acquired great love. There's due to be a pleasure boat crash, soon, in which a long-time principal character will DIE. I expect it will just be the tedious teen Bex, though, nobody interesting.
THE NEW POPE gets madder by the minute, too. I'm so hooked.
