In future EastEnders scenes, creepy stalker Theo Hawthorne (William Ellis) will reveal his true self to Stacey Slater (Lacey Turner).
For several months, Theo has been befriending Stacey and her family while simultaneously surreptitiously stalking the woman.
However, Martin Fowler (James Bye) lately started to suspect him again after Eve Unwin (Heather Peace) told him about Stacey’s stalker.
Martin and Eve will continue to investigate him in forthcoming scenes in order to gather proof that he is Stacey’s stalker.
Even though Stacey has repeatedly said that she wants them to stay friends, Theo is keen to move their friendship to the next level.
Actress Lacey Turner said, “Theo chooses to celebrate his new job with Stacey and invites himself over for the evening.” Since she had informed Theo a few weeks ago that she thought of him as a friend and foolishly assumed he felt the same, Stacey really doesn’t give it a second thought.
Martin is trying to contact Stacey, but he has no clue that by texting her a warning about Theo, he may have unintentionally put her in danger.
While Stacey is attending to a sick Lily (Lillia Turner), Theo snoops about and finds the message on her phone.
He is furious but chooses to tell Stacey everything since he knows the game is over.
“I believe for Theo, he’s got all these distorted illusions that “tonight’s the night” for him and Stacey, but it all falls down when Eve and Martin see through him and he has to eventually tell her the truth,” says the author.
Stacey, who is terrified and trying to figure out how to get him out of her house, is at a loss for what to do.
She first doesn’t believe it since she finds it difficult to comprehend that he might be capable of doing anything like this. He has been putting on such a show for her for months while genuinely helping her, so he is the last person she would ever suspect.
Stacey doesn’t begin to fear until she realizes how mistaken he is about their connection and that she is in danger.
When Lily’s waters rupture, the situation takes a serious turn, and Stacey realizes she will have to deliver the baby at home because the ambulance is running late.
She encounters Theo, who has allowed himself back into the house, as she goes to the kitchen to retrieve a towel.
Will she be able to escape unhurt as he confines her inside?
