56 EastEnders pictures confirm two major returns as one legend’s exit is ‘sealed’

There’s no force stronger than a mothers love, which is a lesson that EastEnders’ The Six are set to find out for themselves next week, as previewed in Metro’s newest picture gallery featuring 56 pictures.

Karen Taylor (Lorraine Stanley), who made a shock exit from the Square last year, stages quite a comeback next week, hellbent on finding out what exactly happened on Christmas Day in regards to son Keanu Taylor’s (Danny Walters) disappearance.

Her presence rattles some of The Six, who claimed Keanu’s life over the festive season, particularly Linda Carter (Kellie Bright), who already has a lot to deal with following her ill-advised kiss with Alfie Moon (Shane Richie), so when she spots Karen she’s left in a panic, fearing that the walls are starting to close in.

With Alfie having suggested a holiday, Linda ultimately takes him up on his offer, returning to the Vic to pack up her belongings, as shown in my pictures above.

The landlady’s exit plan, however, isn’t all that well-received by Elaine Peacock (Harriet Thorpe) and Stacey Slater (Lacey Turner), who are both keen to talk her into staying put.

But will Linda listen to their advice?

Or is some time away from the Square exactly what she needs to get things straight in her mind? That remains to be seen, but her reliance on alcohol once again leads to questions being asked, leaving one resident quite concerned.

And speaking of concern, if I were Karen I’d do everything in my power to keep out of sight because her return riles up Phil Mitchell (Steve McFadden), who demands that she return the money she stole previously.

Karen, however, plays with fire, asserting that she’s keeping hold of said cash, so I can’t help but wonder if Phil will retaliate?

He’s not exactly known for his calm and collected demeanour, is he? I mean, once you cross him that’s that – and Phil has given Karen plenty of chances to give back what is rightfully his, so will he resort to his old tactics to get his cash back?

That’s for me to know and you to find out!

Elsewhere, poor Denise Fox (Diane Parish) continues to suffer in silence following her prison visit with ex Lucas Johnson (Don Gilet), feeling the need to unburden herself as per Pastor Clayton’s advice. But her torment persists as she hallucinates Keanu once again.

You’re in for quite a week, trust me.
