EastEnders spoilers follow.
At the conclusion of last week's EastEnders, Stacey Slater was shoved by her mum Jean.
Stacey was still struggling with her injury in Monday's (May 30) episode, but seeing her mother being so worried for her gave Stacey hope that Jean was experiencing a turning point. However, given how injured Stacey was, Kat wondered if Jean should be back in hospital.
Meanwhile, Stacey was confiding in Kheerat about what Jean had done until she collapsed and was rushed into hospital. It was revealed that due to her injuries, Stacey could be developing sepsis.
It has been a rough time for Stacey and her family. After Jean was diagnosed with bipolar disorder and released from a mental health hospital into her daughter's care, things have only got worse.
Recently, Jean has refused care from anyone besides her granddaughter Lily, but this has put stress on her to the point of worrying about her own mental health after her nan suggested she could be bipolar herself. The worry has taken Lily into taking Jean's medication in the hope of stopping similar breakdowns.
In last Thursday's episode, Stacey decided enough was enough and stopped her daughter from caring for Jean. Then, panic ensued after she learnt of Lily taking her nan's medication. Stacey was preparing to take Lily to hospital for observation.
This led to Stacey and Jean arguing, and when Jean angrily shoved her daughter, Stacey pulled a shard of glass from her back and Lily called 9-9-9 to help her mum.
Lily was left stunned and as she was explaining what happened, her mum stopped her, informing the operator that it was, in fact, Lily that needed the medical attention because of the pills she'd taken.
The conclusion of tonight's instalment ended on a positive note for Lily, cleared with a clean bill of health, and Stacey as she received medical attention in time and stopped the infection.
Back on the square, Jean got a visit from a mental health nurse, leaving the question of who called them. Was it Kat?
