EASTENDERS EPISODE REVIEW - TUESDAY 3RD SEPTEMBER - BEN MITCHELL AND KEANU TAYLOR COME FACE TO FACE!
Mick is then seen rushing over to Whitney as Bianca walks in and asks Bianca to give her away as she declines Whitney walks down the aisle anyway but the look in her eye is one of her being unsure. tbh the music is the first thing that got me. Bianca sits down with her family (Tiffany, Sonia and Robbie).
Back on Albert Square, Lisa Fowler and Mel Owen are looking for Mel's son, Hunter who has taken off which was all know happened in last night's episode. Moments later, Hunter was seen breaking a window and entering Jack Branning's house who he was determined to get revenge on, however Jack had no idea as he was at Whitney and Halfway's wedding.
Back at the Church, Halfway is reading out his vows to Whitney whilst getting choked up but to be honest, I don't see why when we all know he is in love with Ben. Few moments later, Whitney is seen delivering her vows to Halfway whilst getting choked up and running away which let's be honest we were all expecting! Whitney then gets in a car and drives off. Don't we all love a runaway bride.
In the Square again, Mel and Lisa are in Mel's house which Phil Mitchell choses to break into demanded to get answers.
Back in the Church, Bianca and all the other guests are wondering where she got too! I love the fact Bianca is always there for her children.
Back in Mel's house, Lisa Fowler and Phil Mitchell come to ahead as Phil demands answers regarding his daughter, Louise and her boyfriend, Keanu Taylor whereabouts and so he should however, the fact her half-brother, Ben Mitchell caused this whole drama in the first place making Keanu go on the run in the first place has me angered, I am not going to lie. The way that Lisa wasn't afraid to stand up to Phil before revealing that Louise just rolled up at hers with Keanu makes me happy because years ago it would have been very different but this is the EastEnders, I know and love. But with Phil admitting he made a mistake and that he just wants Louise back makes me happy because she belongs on Albert Square with Keanu let's be honest! I love how the character development of Lisa has changed and that she is looking out for Louise more than herself is just a credit to the writers and everyone at EastEnders especially Lucy Benjamin.
The moment Keanu confronted Ben, I'll admit I cheered rather loudly!
But back at Whitney and Halfway's flat, Whitney is seen packing her bags whilst she is confronting him about his relationship with Ben and I adore Whitney for finally having the courage to ask all of the awkward questions. Whitney bringing up Chris was even more awkward for Halfway than I thought it would be if I am honest.
Moments later, Whitney decides to sit down on her bed as she and Halfway continue their conversation about him being gay, I know you don't want to admit how you feel Halfway but it's the best thing you can do for both - you and Whitney. Adore how Whitney is being so honest with him and only wants what's best for him after all but telling him to tell the truth will take time.
Meanwhile, Hunter is still at large and looking for Jack as he sneaks into the Vic cellar.
In the next scene, Halfway is seen arriving at Dot Branning's to see his brother where he is in tears, whilst Whitney is in tears at their flat sobbing her heart out.
In the club, Keanu is seen getting up after Ben attacked him and his words to Ben were ones I was happy to hear because its so obvious how much he loves his girlfriend.
The truthfulness and real dedication to Pete's writing is something that once again moved me and I absoultely adore this man's work!
Also, never until tonight's episode did I realise how much I have missed Lucy Benjamin on my screen as Lisa and classic Lisa/ Phil scenes have made my night, I am not gonna lie.
