Whats this? Is Max Branning actually starting to form genuine feelings for his fake wife Rainie in EastEnders? As the pair become more confused over what exactly the depth of their relationship is, he finds himself becoming jealous when she is seen talking to a male customer at the car lot.
Rainie has made it clear that she is keen to have a family unit as she desperately wants to bring up baby Abi with Max but Max has retained his stance that he is paying her to do a job and they cant muddy the waters.
Rainie is dreaming of a new and happy life – a far stretch from her former demons – and gets excited when looking at magazines for new homes with Honey. She is so positive that she is going to get her second chance and start a bright future with Max that she practically skips out of the Minute Mart – but Max soon brings her back down to earth with a bump.
Max later confronts her about getting carried away but she lies that she was only acting in front of Honey. Later at the car lot, Rainie undercharges a customer and she desperately tries to put things right not wanting to upset Max.
As they head into the office to sort paperwork out, Max spots them and gets the wrong idea and so marches into the cabin, scared of what he will find. But as he realises that it was totally innocent, has he accidentally exposed some deeper feelings for Rainie that will leave them both surprised?
Could they really have a future?
