Next week's EastEnders episodes explore more of the fallout from Hunter Owen's death, while Bobby Beale finds himself in serious danger.
Here's a full collection of 10 storylines you can look forward to.
1. Jack puts his foot down over Bobby
We were shocked and a little sceptical at the news that Bobby could end up moving in with Max – and it seems like Jack also has his doubts about the idea. Early next week, Bobby looks forward to spending some time away from his family and he even asks Max whether his friend Imran can move in too.
When Jack overhears the conversation, he tells Max that Bobby moving in isn't an option. Max is full of guilt when he has to withdraw the offer to Bobby, who's left feeling more lost than ever.
2. Bobby finds himself in danger
Bobby continues to hallucinate at home, which makes his anxiety worse. When Kathy makes a move which Bobby regards as a betrayal, he loses patience and storms out.
The troubled teen spends the night in a park. When he returns home to the Square the next day, things get worse for him as he finds himself in an argument with Rainie and continues to hear Lucy's voice.
When the drama comes to a head, Bobby ends up in a dangerous and high-stakes situation.
3. Mel suffers a devastating setback
As Mel puts preparations in place for Hunter's funeral, she wants to give her son a respectful send-off. However, things go wrong when Phil and Sharon find out that she has been making unauthorised withdrawals from the E20 account.
After being cut off by Phil, a distraught Mel realises that she won't be able to pay for Hunter's funeral and has to talk to Jay about scaling things back.
4. Phil puts his foot down
Phil is only just getting started when it comes to causing trouble for Mel. He orders Jay not to arrange the funeral – and since it's an EastEnders rule that King Phil must be obeyed at all costs – Jay agrees and tells Mel that he's pulling out.
The Mitchell hard man also bans his entire family from attending Hunter's funeral – frustrating Louise, who'd been planning to attend despite her near-death encounter with Hunter during the siege.
5. Tensions rise between the Mitchells and Mel
When Mel visits the Queen Vic after attending Hunter's service, she ends up in a tense encounter as Phil and the rest of the Mitchells are also there. Things get worse when Phil finds out that Jay went behind his back to help out Mel.
Sharon tries to smooth things over with Mel, but the two women end up at each other's throats. Is a new Albert Square feud brewing ahead of Mel's exit?
6. Bex becomes a cause for concern
Bex feels the pressure of university and seeks a distraction by helping out on Martin's market stall. Louise senses that Bex is out of sorts, so comes up with a couple of ideas to help her.
When all else fails, Louise organises a surprise party for Bex at the pub. Sadly, it's the last thing that Bex wants and she deliberately keeps a low profile at the gathering, not wanting to be centre of attention.
7. Linda gets a frosty reception
It's a proud moment for Linda when she takes Ollie to his first day of school, but she gets a hostile reaction from the cliquey mums at the gate.
Chantelle warns Linda that the other mothers aren't the friendliest bunch, but the Queen Vic landlady is determined to make some new pals. Unfortunately, she quickly discovers that it's easier said than done.
8. Keegan makes plans for the future
Mitch continues to berate Keegan for leaving school, but the ambitious teen is making plans to launch his own business. He even offers to help at Walford East, as part of a sneaky plan to use the opportunity to his advantage and further his own idea.
The Ahmed sisters rumble Keegan's cheeky antics, but Iqra surprisingly encourages him to go for his dreams and they manage to strike a mutually beneficial deal.
Keegan also has an important conversation with Tiffany, as they decide to take their relationship slowly and share a kiss.
9. Ballum plan a date
Callum is nervous when Ben asks him out for a drink, wanting a chance to get to know each other better.
Will Callum's anxiety be eased when he seeks some advice from Jay?
10. Ted is struggling
Ted is among the attendees at Bex's party at the pub, but when he enjoys a dance with Sheree, he oversteps the mark.
Patrick tries to speak to Ted afterwards and is taken aback when his friend admits how much he misses Joyce. When Sheree decides to set up a date for Ted, who does she have in mind?
