Future episodes of EastEnders will witness the reappearance of Patrick Trueman (Rudolph Walker), who appears to be concealing something.
The soap icon left the Square in March after feeling fortunate following a horse racing victory.
He made the reckless decision to search down Yolande because he was still longing for his ex-girlfriend, hoping to rekindle their romance.
As he gets back to Walford, it becomes apparent that his family has descended into turmoil while his absence, with a string of tragic events happening at the same time for the unhappy family.
The horrible vehicle accident involving Kim Fox (Tameka Empson), in which she swerved to avoid a pedestrian before ramming bonnet-first into the Argee Bhajee, occurred first.
As it turned out, the collision was the result of her getting sidetracked by texting from Ravi Gulati (Aaron Thiara) on her sister Denise’s (Diane Parish) phone.
When Denise was forced to accept having an affair with the organised criminal, her secrets started to come out.
Patrick will return to an absolute catastrophe, with Denise and Jack’s (Scott Maslen) marriage in ruins and Kim experiencing panic episodes as a result of her crash.
He expresses disbelief that no one had informed him of what had been happening while also expressing concern for the wellbeing of his loved ones.
When Denise inquires about Patrick’s time with Yolande, it appears that he may be keeping some secrets of his own.
He avoids the subject and instead offers to help Jack through this challenging time in their marriage.
Patrick may be purposefully concealing something, but what exactly?
