EastEnders legend Janine Butcher (Charlie Brooks) has had enough of being good. It gets you nowhere, she claims. From now on, she’s going to be bad. Very bad.
Top marks if you understood that reference.
Janine has been on a mission since her return, desperate to prove that she’s capable of being a good mum to daughter Scarlett (Tabitha Byron).
From avoiding getting involved in dodgy deals, to pursuing work at every given opportunity, the stalwart has made quite the effort to change her ways.
But Monday’s (October 18) edition of the serial drama saw her suffer yet another setback, as Scarlett rejected her once more.
Desperate to prove herself, Janine asked Jay Brown (Jamie Borthwick) for a job at the car lot, and – in spite of him believing that she’s turned over a new leaf – he was unable to offer her any work.
Liam (Alife Deegan), meanwhile, was having financial difficulties, explaining that he was being pursued by loan sharks in Germany. This – coupled with Jay’s rejection – led Janine to quite an idea.
The barmaid instructed her nephew to get Jay onside, before stealing his cars, which she will then sell ‘underneath his ratty little nose’.
It was quite clear that classic Janine was back in business, and Tuesday’s (October 19) offering of the soap sees the duo put the next step of their plan in gear.
Billy Mitchell (Perry Fenwick), however, overhears them talking, and he becomes suspicious.
Determined to get to the truth, he confronts Janine and demands that she come clean at once.
Will Janine do as he says? Will she expose her and Liam’s shocking plan to steal from Jay? Or will she cleverly come up with a lie to cover her tracks?
You’ll just have to tune in and find out!
