Tina Carter is set to be left shaken in EastEnders tonight as she finally realises why she is so uncomfortable around evil Stuart Highway – he was behind a terrible ordeal she went through years ago and the whole Carter family could be in serious danger.
Tina was surprised to see Stuart on the Square when she returned from a trip away and as they caught up, a smug and unsettling Stuart enjoyed reminiscing with Tina, who was clearly bothered by something.
As she reminded him of a game he used to play, he shot her down and said it was sick and claimed that she was obviously thinking about someone else. Tina started to relax around him a bit as he was nice to her and offered her and Linda a lift to a show – and tonight, she ends up on a night out to E20 with her.
Dressed up in 80s gear for the themed event, Tina enjoys a laugh and a drink with Stuart but the more they speak, the more starts to come back to Tina and as the penny drops, she looks at Stuart with absolute terror.
Memories from the past which are clearly haunting return to Tina and in the wake of her dark realisation, she wants to be as far away from Stuart as possible and when Tina is a shell of her former self the next day, Sonia Fowler can see that something is up.
When Tina reveals what Stuart did to her, Sonia encourages her to go to the police but manipulative Stuart tries to convince Tina that she has got the wrong end of the stick and that he is innocent.
He even vows that he will help Mick track down the real culprit but a recent trailer revealed that there are huge confrontations ahead as Tina vows to make Stuart pay as the Carters are forced to take him on…
EastEnders continues on Thursday 12th July at 7:30pm on BBC One.
