EastEnders aired a dark turn for Will Mitchell on Tuesday (June 25) as he left grandad Stevie for dead following a heated argument.

After last week's charity event for Lola Pearce, Stevie was the prime suspect after cash raised went missing. Despite claiming his innocence the Walford locals gave him the cold shoulder as Stevie promised to find the culprit.

He already knew Will is being blackmailed after he was catfished into sending an explicit photo of himself. Stevie had promised to raise the £300 needed to pay off the blackmailers but he had yet to get the money together.

Questioned by Stevie over the charity funds, Will denied any involvement, and threw his grandad off the scent by pointing the finger at former drug user Gina Knight.

This caused more friction as Stevie headed to The Queen Vic and confronted Gina only to be thrown out the boozer by her big brother Junior Knight.

Phil Mitchell warned him away, sparking fury in Stevie who reminded his nephew of a childhood birthday party where he took a sheriff's hat that a young Billy had won. The hardman ignored Stevie, but it was clear that Stevie wasn't willing to accept Phil as the head of the Mitchell dynasty.

Later, Big Mo offered her support to new pal Stevie, but when he revealed that Will had sent him Gina's way, she gave Stevie food for thought as he considered just how desperate Will might be – enough to do something "very stupid".

Billy remained oblivious to son Will's behaviour, but after he shunned Stevie once more, Phil angered Will by repeatedly blaming Stevie for the theft. Stevie then followed Will home, asking for the truth.

Will apologised, but when Stevie insisted that it was time to come clean, Will refused, and when Stevie tried to stop him from leaving, Will pushed him over.

In a dramatic scene, Stevie hit his head on the way down with Will dashing out of the flat and leaving his unconscious grandad for dead.

As Stevie remained lifeless, who will arrive to save him? As the week continues, Stevie's secret family also arrives.

EastEnders airs Monday to Thursday at 7.30pm on BBC One and BBC iPlayer
