Menacing Stuart Highway has vowed to make Mick Carter pay a heavy price after he made him retract a false allegation of child abuse against an innocent man in EastEnders. As his dark side continues to emerge, the Carters are going to have to watch their backs as he determines to get revenge.
Against Micks advice, Stuart uploaded a video accusing a man called Fred of grooming a child but when Fred was then beaten up by vigilantes, the police informed Stuart and Mick that Fred had been searching for his daughter and had done nothing wrong.
Mick was sickened and, furious at Stuart for going too far, he attacked him and overcame him in a fight. Later, after he saw how badly Fred had been beaten up and saw his distressed daughter in tears, Mick called Stuart round and insisted that he created a new video to exonerate Fred.
Stuart was eventually forced to comply and he bitterly revealed he had got it wrong before then ranting that he was sick of Mick dictating to him what is right and wrong when he doesnt know the real world or real suffering.
Condemning him for doing nothing when Linda was attacked, Stuart hit a low blow – and then angrily looked at a happy Carter picture as he snarled that maybe Mick would understand more if he could feel some real pain.
A recent trailer revealed that Stuarts behaviour is going to turn the lives of the Carters upside down – but how far is he prepared to go?
