Its been quite some time since we last saw him, but Martin Fowler (James Bye) made a shocking return to EastEnders tonight after Sonia (Natalie Cassidy) informed him of Bexs (Jasmine Armfield) suicide attempt, and — in addition to worrying about his daughter — its pretty clear that hes gunning for Ben Mitchell (Max Bowden).
Following Sonia having discovered Bex unresponsive in bed at the end of the previous episode, the paramedics arrived tonight and tended to young girl. As she was taken away in the ambulance, Sonia realised that she needed to inform Martin about whats transpired, and thus she called him. However, his phone went straight to voicemail — much to her dismay.
Meanwhile, at the Slaters, Kush (Davood Ghadami), Jean (Gillian Wright) and Kat (Jessie Wallace) deliberated over Martins inability to return to the Square considering the circumstances which forced him to leave in the first place, but nonetheless Kush was adamant that he needed to know what happened.
Over at the hospital, Sonia informed Bex that Martin was on his way — a lie which she later regretted. However, Max (Jake Wood) and Stuart (Ricky Champ) both applauded her for giving Bex something to look forward to, but Sonia wasnt so sure, and the discussion of Martin unleashed the anger she feels towards her ex-husband.
She berated Martin for not answering her calls, claiming that hes made his choice and that he doesnt care about his daughter.
However, unbeknown to Sonia, Martin was already back on the Square.
As Ben grew concerned over the threat hed received off Kheerat and Jags Panesar (Jaz Deol and Amar Adatia), an angry Martin — in cognito, of course — watched from afar.
Bex is the reason hes back, but will he be out for retribution on Ben also?
