Bobby Beale (Clay Milner Russell) has reached the edge as he has been unable to shake the intimidating voice of his dead sister Lucy (Hetti Bywater) from constantly plaguing him. Since returning to his home in Walford, the EastEnders teen has been reminded of the horrific crime he committed which ended Lucy’s life and since then he has struggled and often failed to hold it together.

In recent weeks, his visions of Lucy have become more intense and she has been telling him that she won’t ever forgive him while also laughing mirthlessly at him. When he is in the house, it reaches its peak and despite Ian’s (Adam Woodyatt) attempt to get through to his son and find him support, he has ended up snapping and being left more vulnerable than ever.

After another row with Rainie Branning (Tanya Franks) during which she disgusted Bobby by revealing that Ian slept with her on the night that Lucy died, he lashed out at his dad by dousing him with a bucket of water.

He lied to a concerned Max Branning (Jake Wood) that he had sorted things with Ian after Ian siggested that they get him some professional help but Max wasn’t fooled. As Lucy’s voice reached its loudest pitch in Bobby’s mind, he was left screaming that this is his home now and he needed to get rid of her.

Thinking he physically had to destroy the memories of her, Bobby desperately doused the place in petrol before grabbing a lighter while standing in the fuel. As Max kicked the door down, he may find himself too late as Bobby’s situation is perilous.

If he drops the lighter into the fluid, the whole room will go up, with him caught in the middle. Is Bobby’s nightmare about to lead to his tragic end?
