Bobby Beale and Dana Monroe, who met on the set of EASTENDERS, may be set to rekindle their romance, with the youngster planning to take their relationship to the next level.
Bobby Beale (Clay Milner Russell) and Dana Monroe (Barbara Smith) recently divorced after her brother Aaron Monroe (Charlie Wernham) planted a bomb outside the mosque where her boyfriend worships. The far-right activist became involved with a gang, putting many people’s lives in jeopardy. When he realized his sister was in danger, he confessed everything to his father, Harvey Monroe (Ross Boatman). Bobby is about to make a big decision by asking Dana to marry him now that Aaron is in prison, but will she say yes?
In upcoming scenes, Peter (Dayle Hudson) is shocked to learn of Aaron’s actions and his prison sentence, and he warns Bobby to stay away from Dana in order to keep his brother safe.
Bobby ignores his brother’s advice and goes to Kathy Beale (Gillian Taylforth) for a loan, revealing his plans to propose to Dana.
Kathy tells Peter about Bobby’s plan, but she also tells him what she knows about Dana’s family, which makes him excited.
Later, as Harvey watches, Bobby gets down on one knee in front of Dana, but a furious Kathy and Peter burst in, refusing to let her grandson marry into the family.
Will Dana accept Peter’s proposal? Will she break his heart even more by rejecting him?
Mitch Baker (Roger Griffiths) approaches Harvey to get his side of the story as word about Aaron spreads around the Square, and he admits the rumors are true.
Harvey later visits Aaron in prison and tells him that this is the last time he will see him because he cannot bear seeing his son in prison.
Meanwhile, Mitch and Patrick Trueman (Rudolph Walker) are dealing with the news about Aaron when Harvey shows up at The Vic and announces that the family is leaving and that Aaron will never see him again.
When Jean Slater (Gillian Wright) learns of this, she confronts Harvey, accusing him of abandoning his son and leaving him shaken.
Mitch sees Harvey at The Vic and sits with him, but when Keegan asks Harvey about Aaron, he walks out, leaving his friend to drown his sorrows.
Will Bobby leave Walford if Harvey and Dana do?
Aaron’s involvement in the far-right group over the last few months has shaken the Monroe family, causing chaos and terror in the square.
In December 2021, the group was responsible for Keegan’s racial attack, which left him helpless in the street after he was beaten with a crowbar.
Aaron was also involved in the homophobic assaults on Tony Clay (Callum Highway) and Ash Kaur (Gurlaine Kaur Garcha).
Harvey was disturbed when he finally saw his true colors, despite his best efforts to keep quiet about his son’s actions and subtly try to steer him away from the extremist gang.
Aaron had planned to detonate a bomb in The Albert over the New Year, but his plan fell apart when he realized he was endangering his sister.
He was also asked to take over the group, which required him to relocate to Manchester, and he wanted sister Dana to accompany him.
Harvey tried to bribe Aaron into leaving the group, but his son slammed it down in his face, claiming he had let him and Dana down for years.
Harvey made the difficult decision to report Aaron to the police after noticing his son had gone too far, and he watched him get arrested.
As the police arrived to arrest Aaron, Harvey turned to his son and said: “People like me ain’t the problem in this country, Aaron. People like you are.”
