This week on EastEnders, Stacey Slater (Lacey Turner) is anxious as she appears in court to get a protection order against Theo Hawthorne (William Ellis).
Theo first discovered Stacey on a website similar to OnlyFans and has been following her ever since.
Theo first gave off the impression of being a kind, approachable local teacher who wished to assist people like Freddie Slater (Bobby Brazier) and Lily Slater (Lillia Turner), but a few weeks ago, his true self emerged.
Theo is still residing in Walford despite Stacey’s best efforts to get rid of him, making her life a complete misery.
Stacey is becoming anxious as the hearing for her stalking protection order approaches.
When Stacey goes to face Theo after finding the Secret Cam posters he had plastered all over Albert Square, she finds him dressed sharply and prepared for court.
Stacey chooses to go to the hearing after all because she worries that Theo’s reputation could influence the magistrate.
Before Theo’s attorney, Mr. Rath, takes the witness stand and addresses the court, she comes to hear DS Garrett setting out the evidence.
When Mr. Rath destroys Stacey’s reputation and character, she is unable to continue acting with restraint.
The effects of the magistrate’s verdict are felt strongly by Stacey as the week progresses.
Theo comes into the Slater family while Stacey is home alone after making it plain that he still thinks he’s destined to be with her, which leads to a shocking occurrence.
What will happen though?
