EastEnders spoilers follow.
Stacey Slater has been injured by her mum Jean in new EastEnders scenes.
The family's struggles reached a boiling point in Thursday's (May 26) episode as Jean continued to refuse care from anyone except her granddaughter Lily.
Lily has become consumed with worries about her own mental health after Jean suggested she could be bipolar too, going so far as to take her nan's medication in hopes of staving off a similar breakdown.
Stacey finally decided in Thursday's instalment that she wouldn't allow Lily to take care of Jean anymore. Elsewhere in the Square, Harvey was encouraged by Shirley to go visit Jean.
Their visit actually went better than expected when Jean finally showed some interest and even helped her former partner finish a jigsaw puzzle.
However, any positive signs were quickly overshadowed once Stacey found out about Lily taking her nan's medication. Panic ensued as Stacey prepared to take Lily to A&E for observation.
This led to a confrontation between Stacey and Jean, where Jan struck out in anger by shoving her daughter. Stacey pulled a shard a glass from her bleeding back, so Lily called 9-9-9 to help her mum.
When Lily was about to explain what happened with Jean, Stacey stopped her to tell the operator it was her daughter who needed medical attention because she'd taken pills.
A stunned Lily was horrified as a clearly-injured Stacey told her privately that nobody else needed to know what happened between her and Jean.
The fallout of Stacey's injuries will continue in more alarming scenes next week...
