Stacey (Lacey Turner) has been concerned about Jean’s (Gillian Wright) behavior for some time in EastEnders, as she fears her mother’s bipolar disorder is getting out of hand.
In subsequent episodes, it becomes clear that Jean is not her usual self, and her actions begin to negatively impact her grandson, Arthur (Hunter Bell). She first injures Arthur by colliding with him on a bouncy castle by accident. But what happens next could leave the poor lad permanently scarred.
Stacey forbids Jean from being alone with the kids until she sees a doctor after the bouncy castle incident. Jean ignores this and drives Arthur to the tube station, where she informs him of his father’s death, Kush (Davood Ghadami).
Gray Atkins, of course, was responsible for Kush’s death (Toby-Alexander Smith). It’s unclear how Arthur will react when he learns that his father was murdered out of the blue, but Stacey is furious when she learns that Jean has gone against her wishes and told Arthur the grisly details.
After a big fight, Jean packs her belongings and moves in with Harvey (Ross Boatman) and Rocky (Brian Conley).
Will Jean recognize that she requires assistance before anyone else is harmed?
