EastEnders spoilers follow.
Chelsea Fox has told serial killer husband Gray Atkins she will stay with him after a dramatic labour in EastEnders.
Monday's episode carried on from the Christmas Day bombshell where Chelsea bravely tried to flee the Square in the back of Mitch Baker's taxi once she found out her new husband had killed his late wife Chantelle.
Gray had manipulated Harvey into telling him where Chelsea was heading, so he convinced Mitch to bring her home by claiming she'd become unstable.
Once Mitch left, Gray verbally abused Chelsea by dubbing her a thief and threatening he'd go to police over her robbery at Ruby's club.
As Gray threatened Chelsea she'd have to give birth handcuffed to a bed once he turned her in, Chelsea actually started to take a turn for the worse and he was forced to call for an ambulance.
Chelsea was rushed to the hospital where she was immediately induced into labour — with Gray right there by her side. Though she was thankfully able to deliver baby Jordan, he was born with serious complications.
At that point, Chelsea made a major decision since she had an ill child in the emergency ward. Gray joined her as she visited their baby son, so she apologised for running out on him.
While she didn't reveal why she'd really fled, Chelsea told her husband: "I was scared but I should have just come to you, spoken to you."
Gray seemed to believe her explanation, assuring his wife: "Nothing matters now except us and Jordan… This beautiful little boy is a part of you and he's a part of me. He will be okay."
As Gray put his hand on the incubator, Chelsea slid her own over his and they locked hands to close the episode.
Is Chelsea actually willing to forgive evil Gray or is she playing the long game?
