Max Branning is set to fear that his wife Rainie has switched sides in EastEnders as he walks in on her talking furtively with newly returned Cora Cross. Cora has arrived back in Walford and appears to want to make amends with Max and Rainie for the sake of Abi.
She even leaves the baby with the couple for the day but soon makes it clear to Patrick Trueman that nothing pains her more! Rainie and Max enjoy having baby Abi but Cora has ulterior motives and, finding time alone with Rainie, she hits her with an offer – betray Max in exchange for cash!
As Rainie mulls this over, Max walks in and sees them talking – and he becomes worried that Rainie is turning on him following their recent rows and plans to cut him out with Coras help.
With Rainie having made it clear to Max that her end game is having Abi in her life whether than includes him or not, her discussion with Cora leads to tensions and later in the week, Rainie demands a cheque from Cora.
Are Maxs fears becoming a reality or will Rainie stand by the plan?
