Next week, EastEnders will launch a shock attack on Stacey Slater.
A hooded man is going to threaten Stacey (Lacey Turner), just as her continuing rivalry with Ruby Allen hits the point of no return.
Stacey would carelessly launch into a tirade about Ruby’s money and her ‘daddy problems’ during a cleaning shift at The Vic with Kat, unaware that her young daughter Lily is listening in.
Later, a misplaced delivery of champagne at the club leads to a ride down memory lane for Ruby and Stacey, and it seems like their relationship could be saved for a moment.
Unfortunately, when Lilly repeats the mean stuff that Stacey said about Ruby earlier, leaving her fuming, the equilibrium between them does not last long.
As she receives something surprising in the post and reveals Kush, Stacey’s week then goes from bad to worse.
Believing the issue here is his own money issues, Kush thinks it’s a sign about one of his debts. On the other hand, Stacey is persuaded that the nasty delivery is from Ruby.
While Ruby profusely denies it, by insisting that she would have Stacey out of the Square at the click of a finger, she exercises her strength.
Upset that Ruby is trying to take her children away from her, Stacey decides to tackle the situation head-on later and give a piece of her mind to Ruby.
However, Stacey is assaulted by a hooded figure and left lying on the floor as she makes her way to the club to talk to Ruby. Who assaulted her and will she be all right?
