This Christmas, Jack Branning (Scott Maslen) in EastEnders is going to let out his frustrations at his failing marriage and his children, Ricky and Amy Mitchell (Frankie Day and Ellie Dadd).
When he loses his anger, he wrecks his connection with Ricky Jr. and delicate Amy, who was already having trouble after learning that Dean Wicks (Matt Di Angelo), who had recently returned, had tried to rape her late mother, Roxy.
After helping Stacey Slater (Lacey Turner) in her legal battle against her insane stalker Theo Hawthorne (William Ellis), who had also attempted to rape her, Jack has recently become closer to Stacey.
When Eve Unwin (Heather Peace), Stacey’s ex-wife, vanished, she also resorted to the policeman for assistance.
Additionally, Jack and Stacey had a lot of time spent together both before and after Ricky Jr. and Lily Slater (Lillia Turner) became parents.
Additionally, he consented to remain silent after Stacey revealed the truth about Theo attacking him and putting a gun on him in an effort to free Bobby Brazier’s character, Freddie Slater.
But after confronting the rapist Dean in the plaza, Denise Fox (Diane Parish), the wife, was incensed to learn that Jack had failed to inform her that he was returned.
Denise found it too much when she learned that Ricky Jr.’s mother, Sam Mitchell (Kim Medcalf), had been residing at the house with his former partner.
Even while Jack and Denise manage to patch things up at first, there is genuine tension between them and they are uncomfortable with one another.
Soon, Jack will be able to decompress by going shopping for Christmas with Stacey and lending her money so she may buy gifts for her children.
What next transpires to eventually cause Jack to lose his cool against Ricky Jr. and Amy? Denise goes to No. 20 to try to save her marriage after seeing the miserable couple in the plaza, but is it too late?
