Stacey Slater (Lacey Turner) was the victim of a horrifying attack in EastEnders tonight (October 22), but who is responsible?
Stacey was fuming in tonight’s offering, as she discussed the actions of former friend and new adversary Ruby Allen (Louisa Lytton).
Believing that Ruby was trying to muscle in and steal her kids, the young woman informed Kat (Jessie Wallace) that she simply wouldn’t stand for it.
However, her attention soon shifted when Lily (Lilia Turner) discovered a dead rat that had been put through the letter box.
Stacey saw red and believed that Ruby was responsible, and therefore set off to confront her enemy — with the rat in tow!
Ruby denied having any such knowledge of the rat, but her plans for a movie night with the kids and Martin Fowler (James Bye) left Stacey seething.
Stacey was later horrified to discover that Kush Kazemi (Davood Ghadami) had allowed Martin to take the kids for the purposes of said movie night, and thus she wasted little time in heading to the club.
However, a mystery figure stalked her in the darkness, before proceeding to brutally attack her.
After being thrown against the wall opposite the club, Stacey slumped to the floor, and the mystery assailant took out his phone and took a photo of her — informing her that if she wants to play games, then they can do so.
The question is: is Ruby responsible for the attack? She did previously inform Dotty Cotton (Milly Zero) that she wasn’t planning on letting Stacey away with what she’s done, but is she capable of orchestrating a violent attack such as this one?
Or could the attack be related to Kush’s money troubles? A hooded figure was seen stalking the house earlier in the episode — and Kush seemed worried by such a thing.
EastEnders continues Friday October 23 at 8:05pm on BBC One.
