Hello and welcome to A Slice Of Soap.
ers, what did you think of paedophile Tony’s comeuppance? I’m sooooooo glad things are out in the open but doesn’t your heart go out to poor ‘Biancaaaaaaah’? Will she ever find true love? In some ways though, I felt she was a bit restrained – if that had been me, I would’ve wanted to kill him. But she did chuck stuff at him so I suppose that’s close enough. At least Tony’s been found out, all we need now is for Coronation Street’s evil businessman Tony ‘JR’ Gordon to be exposed for his part in the murder of Liam Connor. I’ll then be able to watch Corrie without my blood pressure going up.
But all credit to the writers of Coronation Street and EastEnders, they’ve done an excellent job keeping us die-hard soap fans in suspense with these two storylines. It’s just a shame that the same can’t be said for the EastEnders ‘Who tried to kill Max’ storyline. Now I don’t know about you, but I lost interest in this whodunnit from week one, and if the latest revelations about the driver of the car are true, then it’s an even bigger anti-climax to a dreary storyline.
(SPOILER ALERT!!!) Want to know who ran Max over? If you’d rather not, stop reading now…. According to Digital Spy, Lauren Branning drops a bombshell when she admits – to Max’s face – that she tried to kill him. The teenager makes the confession after watching her mum Tanya plead guilty to the charge, in an attempt to cover up for her daughter. A devastated Lauren tells Max in the forthcoming January episode: "It weren’t mum driving that car. It weren’t her that tried to kill you. It was me, dad."
So what do you think guys…is this a soap award-winning ending to what was supposed to be a nail-biting whodunnit? Well, if they do end up winning awards next year for this storyline, I’ll question the sanity of the voters. It doesn’t have a tenth of the drama and excitement generated by the Max and Stacey illicit love affair, culminating in the famous Christmas episode. In fact, I’d go as far as labelling it as pretty desperate. Come on EastEnders, you can do better than that! Lauren indeed!!!!
