Over the years, Stacey Slater (Lacey Turner) has been a part of several significant EastEnders stories, and this is expected to continue in the upcoming year.
The Six—Stacey, Linda Carter (Kellie Bright), Suki Panesar (Balvinder Sopal), Kathy Beale (Gillian Taylforth), Denise Fox (Diane Parish), and Sharon Watts (Letitia Dean)—will be gathered around a dead body in the Queen Vic on Christmas Day, and she is currently entangled in the much awaited murder mystery plot.
Actress Lacey Turner recapped Stacey’s incredible year building up to this moment.
Although Stacey has had a difficult year, I like her for her ability to get back up and try again.
The worst thing, in my opinion, about Stacey was how powerless she felt when Theo (William Ellis) showed out on the Square. It was evident that this man had been torturing her for over half a year, but he was still able to escape the situation. He was so naive about their relationship, and I believe Stacey believed there was no hope at the moment.
It won’t be easy sailing for long since Eve has vanished and Stacey is going to run into problems of her own. However, now that he has entered a guilty plea, the entire burden has been removed, and she is looking forward to putting her life back on track.
Given that Stacey is expected to have blood on her hands on Christmas Day, is it possible that she will strike one of the Walford men fatally? If yes, who will it be?
She believes that Nish (Heather Peace) may have played a role in her disappearance because she is clearly connected to him.
God knows how Stacey would respond if she learned about their encounter in the woods, considering that Ravi is also connected to that plot. Eve and Stacey are like to sisters; she would stop at nothing to keep Eve safe, and vice versa.
Although the Christmas Day episode has consumed our thoughts for over a year, the EastEnders crew has been planning far more ahead of time, and Lacey has stated that Stacey has a lot more in store.
“That’s all I have to say for now, but there is some more drama for Stacey coming up.”
