I can't say that I am happy about the regression with Max and Stacey in the past few episodes, but Jo Joyner knocked it out of the park tonight as Tanya.

Denise and Kim are not actually sisters (not biologically, anyway), so they're safe!  I would worry more for Tina and Shirley.

They do suffer so for non sisters - with Denise having to give up her baby and Kim losing hers.  

Well, nothing can be worse for Tina than sleeping with Billy.  Death would be ever better.

Tanya not having any of Max's shit was so glorious, as was her immediately clocking what was going on with him and Stacey.

I know the #1 rule of EastEnders is that no one can be happy but couldn't they let us have Martin and Stacy? I really like them as a couple.

I was really enjoying Tanya. too. But it seems like she has vanished into thin air! It was so odd for her to be absent for those major moments with Abi's situation. Hopefully, she'll be back on screen next week.

Jo Joyner was in the middle of filming another project at the time she was asked to appear for Christmas, so they had to schedule her scenes around that. 

I suspect that much of the Christmas storylines were revised because of the producer change, but it just feels wrong and out of place that there are only brief mentions of Tanya and that she would not have been there for the birth of her grandchild, much less by the sides of both of her daughters in hospital.  In fact, there isn't much mention of Abi or anyone asking about her or Lauren at all.  I could see the rest of the Square maybe not knowing since none of them really interact with Max but Jack only found out about her condition today, more or less a week after the accident, and that also doesn't feel right.

Why couldn't they just let Abi leave the Square, join the others in Spain (it just seems a lot of the Square end in up Spain). and have a happy ending.  Jeez, Lorna has been with the show since she was 10.  And she was the only one who tried to at least get rid of Babe.

I like Vincent!  They are really getting rid of all the cast members that I like.   Part of me is thinking about giving up and just waiting to catch up in 7 years when these episodes reach the states.

And, part of that reason was watching the robbery storyline.  Which IMO was the one of the stupidest ideas they ever had.

Wow, and I thought the robbery story line was one of the stupidest ideas.   Mick in jail for shooting Stuart is just as bad (though, I'm a few weeks behind, maybe it gets better. I doubt it though).

Back in PBSland, we are in the middle of Lucy is acting like a total brat storyline which makes me a bit less sad that she going to be killed.  Though, its very gross knowing that her and Max are going to wind up having an affair in about 7 years.

I'm in PBSland but I thought I'd peek in here.  I'm shocked that Lucy is going to wind up with Max.  Unless they recast Max, I don't think he's that attractive and I don't understand how he got Tanya in the first place, and I certainly don't understand why young women like Stacey and Lucy would fall for him.

No, its still Jake Wood all these years later.  But its a different actress playing Lucy at that point.

It took all weekend but I'm mostly caught up - just a few days behind.

Question for Brits - is Danny Dyer that popular in England.  Because since Mick returned, he is just so annoying.  Shirley should have made him actually fire her.  Team Shirley!  

And, wow the Taylors.  Its like someone remembered the Millers and thought - lets bring them back but a bit more annoying.  

Where are you watching the more current episodes?

I'm still a few weeks behind (Harley still hasn't given birth yet) but man, I'm am so hating Kat.  They are really having her act the bitch.  Yes, Harley did sleep with Alfie but I'm on Team Harley.  Especially since sleeping with Alfie is punishment enough (and Kat is one to talk considering she also cheated on Alfie).  And honestly, all the shit everyone is giving Harley in the Slater household, all of them have backgrounds so they should all be a lot nicer.

And, Keanu, jeez, you can do so much better than Sharon. :-)

I wouldn’t have been upset if Alfie had died - between stealing from Ian, mocking Kat’s abuse and now kidnapping, shove him down those stairs again.

Alfie has always been a character I liked until the last few weeks. I was expecting a rehash of when Zoe, Sam, and Chrissie killed Den.

And so far in this year....Alfie still sucks!  I'm still a few weeks behind but I doubt that has changed.

And, fyi, Sean Slater is in the new Captain Marvel movie!  I did not recognize Robert Kazinsky at all.  Probably for the best since I would have said out loud in the theatre- Hey! That's Sean Slater!

Honey has got to stop dating that dentist.  Even Billy is better than someone who is always looking down and correcting her.  Grr.

so, do we think there should be a time jump when the show starts production again? or should it just pick back up and pretend like nothing has happened?

I go back and forth on this.  The pacing of the show has been so affected by these 2 a week episodes.  I like all of the stories going on right now, but feel like the Keegan story and the Whitney story are just draggggggging.  Then I remember that at 4 x a week we would be moving along a lot quicker.  
 

So, to answer your question, I don’t have an answer!  Lol

They will have to find some way to sync back up by Christmas for sure.

True, true.  It’s really throwing me that we are headed into June and they are still in their winter coats and hats going around the square.  The other night I was trying to figure out what date these were supposed to be shown.  I know right about at Easter because they made mention of Easter not too long ago in one of the episodes.

So , we're back! What's everyone think of the post-lockdown storylines? I'm kind of shocked

Spoiler

Whitney hasn't gone to trial already.
