More reunions than a high school reunion have recently rocked EastEnders, and a brand-new family has moved into Walford.

In subsequent scenes, Cindy Beale (Michelle Collins) and her husband Ian Beale (Adam Woodyat) are expected to resurrect as they go back to the Square.

As Sam Mitchell, Kim Medcalf will return to the programme later this year for a significant plot involving her son Ricky (Frankie Day), who is expecting a baby with his 12-year-old expectant mother Lily Slater (Lillia Turner).

And now Lisa Fowler, a former Mitchell family member, is scheduled to make an appearance in Albert Square.

For the first time in three years, Lucy Benjamin will return to the drama magnet role.

But when Lisa makes her comeback, many are speculating as to whether her daughter Louise Mitchell (Tilly Keeper) will accompany her. This is what we do know.

Lisa is aware that Louise’s absence will only be short and that there are no current plans for her return.

The last time viewers saw Louise was in 2020, when she and her mother Lisa departed the Square. At the time, Louise was going through a difficult period in her life since she had just lost her closest friend Mel Owen (Tamzin Outhwaite).

After giving birth to Peggy, the child of Keanu Taylor (Danny Walters), who travelled with the two to Portugal, Louise departed the Square not long after.

After the shocking news that Keanu had been having an affair with her stepmother Sharon Watts (Letitia Dean), Louise felt she had to leave since she had planned Keanu’s murder.

To fake his death, Keanu was assisted by Martin Fowler (James Bye), who later returned to the soap opera to live with Sharon and raise their own kid, Albie.

Keanu and Sharon will find themselves in a sticky position when Lisa returns with Peggy.

Louise’s return and her closeness to her ex-boyfriend Phil Mitchell (Steve McFadden) will surely lead to lots of drama, albeit it is not yet apparent why Lisa is bringing Peggy to Keanu or why she is not with the two when they arrive.

“I can’t wait to make my return as Lisa Fowler again after leaving for Spain with Louise and my granddaughter Peggy back in 2019,” Lucy Benjamin remarked upon her return.

Playing her is really a pleasure because, without a doubt, in typical Lisa manner, she will bring with her plenty of drama for many of the folks on the Square.
