EastEnders has aired a shocking knife twist in Tommy Moon’s bullying story.
The schoolboy has been tormented by older boys for protecting half-sister Scarlett, with even intervention from Phil Mitchell not being enough to run off the bullies.
Thursday’s (March 24) episode saw Tommy’s anxiety building up once again as he watched the video of Sid antagonising him. Events started to spiral out of control once teacher Isaac Baptiste broke up the latest scuffle in the playground.

Tommy loaded up his backpack with a knife and tried to use it to scare off the bullies. As Tommy turned to walk away, Sid took a cheap shot in attacking him.
Tommy threw the backpack at Sid, with the knife jabbing the bully in his shoulder. One of the other boys had been filming the whole incident as Tommy ran away.
