Jean Slater continues to struggle with her mental health in EastEnders following a clash with daughter Stacey.
Soap bosses have explored mental health with the Slater family many times over the years, with Jean having struggled at various times while Stacey was sectioned with post-partum psychosis after Arthur’s birth.
This week has seen Stacey realizing that mum Jean is going through a manic episode, leading her to restrict Jean from spending any time with the children alone.
In tonight’s episode (March 22), Jean told Stacey that she “always knew [Stacey] would amount to nothing “, then even claimed that her daughter had already messed up her own children.
“That is where the damage is coming from, Stacey. You, not me,” Jean told her.
Jean has been insistent that young Arthur Fowler Jr find out the truth about how his father Kush Kazemi was murdered, so she actually took him to the train platform where Kush died.
Stacey and Martin were able to find Arthur and Jean just as a train sped by, thereby preventing another tragedy.
“You’ve probably scarred him for life and for what?” Stacey demanded.
After receiving more horrific insults, Stacey begged Jean to get help by telling her she loved her “with all my heart”. Jean vowed she’d be getting away from Stacey and her di lei “toxicity” di lei.
Jean later turned up at Harvey’s to announce she’d be moving in with him because Stacey is dead to her!
EastEnders airs on Mondays, Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays at 7.30pm on BBC One and streams on BBC iPlayer.
