In a stunning comeback to EastEnders this week, Dean Wicks (Matt Di Angelo) upended Linda Carter’s (Kellie Bright) world by entering into a business partnership with Ian and Cindy Beale (Adam Woodyatt and Michelle Collins).
In the most recent scenes, Dean looked to his ex-stepsister for help because he had no supporters on the Square, but things didn’t quite go his way.
When Chelsea Fox’s mother Denise (Zaraah Abrahams) was married to Dean’s father Kevin Wicks in 2007, Chelsea Fox (Zaraah Abrahams) lived with Dean for eight months.
In the most recent scenes, Dean requested her to meet him for coffee, hoping she would be able to support him.
When Dean and Chelsea first met at the café, he told her right away what had led him back to the Square, how his daughter Jade’s sickness had gotten worse, and that his brother had passed away from the same illness.
Dean tried to use emotional blackmail to get Chelsea to talk to Linda, but Chelsea was quite clear that she understood what he had done and didn’t think he was innocent.
It will be known to viewers that, despite his refusal to acknowledge his wrongdoings, Dean attempted to rape Roxy Mitchell and raped Linda in 2014.
After being found not guilty of attacking Roxy, Dean was allowed to resume his regular activities.
Linda saw Chelsea running out of the café with Dean chasing after her, and she subsequently found her to find out what Dean had said.
Chelsea reassured her that she was aware of his actions and promised to support her.
They were unaware that Dean was observing them from the other side of Albert Square, and he didn’t seem to be very pleased with their friendliness.
When it becomes increasingly obvious that no one wants Dean around, will he opt to move on and ruin Linda’s life, or will he stay and see how miserable everything is for him?
