Not content with almost destroying the Carters, unrepentant Stuart Highway is set to find his next target in EastEnders as he seeks to manipulate pensioner Dot Branning – but what is he up to this time and how far is he prepared to go?
Linda is worried when Mick is late coming back from his hearing following Dylans confession to the shooting and as the family all talk about recent events, they are more sure than ever that Stuart is behind it.
Linda later sees Stuart on the Square and she is spooked to see that he is still hanging around. But Stuart is busying himself with others as he asks Dennis Rickman for the necklace he gave him. Finding out where it is, Stuart heads to Dots and works his charms on her, promising that none of what everyone says about him is true. Well, if she believed Nasty Nick…
As Stuart gets his feet under the table at Dots, it remains to be seen what he has planned and how much risk the beloved stalwart is at but when Mick arrives home from prison, he is still haunted by what he has been through and clocks that Stuart is spending time at the pensioners home.
Mick now believes that Stuart slept with his wife while he was inside so with that adding to his existing rage, Micks only focus is on revenge – and he is soon taking drastic action to ensure that Stuart pays once and for all.
As Linda fears what her husband will do and whether it might land him back in prison, Mick executes his plan and a deadly chain of events unfolds. Stuart may have survived a shooting and more whacks over the head than a whack-a-mole but is his time up – could Mick go as far as murder this time?
