EastEnders icon Jean Slater (Gillian Wright) is set to face a new challenge, after Mo Harris (Laila Morse) left her with a garage full of cannibis!
The soap stalwart was feeling particularly emotional in tonight’s edition (June 3) of the BBC One soap, as Mo prepared to leave the Square.
Jean, however, knew full well that Mo – in spite of her insistence on honesty – was keeping quiet about something big.
And when she later caught Mo locking up the garage – not to mention hightailing it from sight when a police car drove past – she decided it was time to get to the bottom of the conundrum.
Mo, being Mo, pretended that there was nothing to discuss, but when the police came knocking, she decided to come clean!
Viewers were kept in the dark – so to speak – for a little bit longer, but Jean’s horrified reaction to Mo’s big secret was enough to confirm that – whatever it was that she was hiding – it wasn’t above board!
Jean then put her fears aside, and said a fond farewell to Mo, who left the Square in a rather heartwarming scene – one that was reminiscent of Jean’s 2013 departure, when she waved her nearest and dearest off.
Mo’s exit, however, did not receive a Julia’s Theme – and we reckon it would’ve certainly benefited from one.
The reason – we’re assuming – it did not receive the soap’s signature emotional melody, is because there was still some story left to tell. In other words, the soap wanted viewers to learn what Mo’s big secret was before the signature Doof Doof.
Zack Hudson (James Farrar) – who has evidently taken a liking to Jean given that she essentially brought him to the Square – offered to assist her should she ever need a hand.
And with that, Jean accepted his offer, before invited him into her garage.
Zack – like the audience, no doubt – was stunned, as the garage was full of cannibis!
‘I need you to help me get rid of this Zack,’ said Jean. ‘I don’t want to be a drug lord!’
Drug lord Jean? Let’s not go there, eh? We beg.
Will Zack do as Jean asks?
EastEnders continues Friday June 4 at 8:35pm on BBC One.
