EastEnders spoilers to follow.
EastEnders prepares Janine Butcher for a tragic accident in the episodes next week.
Janine, who is pregnant with Mick’s baby, is about to fall down the steps at the subway station on the day of her first baby scan.
Linda is accidentally left alone at The Vic while Mick assists Janine with the scan and urges Sharon to step in and help.
When Mick and Janine return, Linda learns where they’ve been on the wrong foot.
Janine then enjoys upsetting Linda about the pregnancy, but Linda storms off to meet with her Community Payback Officer, Murray.
Later, Janine sets out on her own, where tragedy strikes when she falls down the stairs at the subway station.
When Sharon reminds Mick to be sensitive about his ex-wife, little do they know Linda saw Janine being tended to by paramedics.
To complicate matters, Mick manages to misplace his phone in the football chaos, meaning Janine and Linda are unable to reach him.
Despite their differences, Linda misses her appointment with Murray to be by Janine’s side while she is admitted to the hospital.
Murray arrives at the Vic looking for Linda while Shirley finds Mick’s cell phone. Mick is horrified when he finds out what happened and rushes to Janine, where he finds Linda with her.
Fans will have to wait and see what the paramedics say to Janine, but she’s furious when she later sees Mick and Linda outside together.
Janine confronts Mick about his whereabouts and reveals she saw him with Linda.
Mick tries to justify his actions, but the rug is pulled out from under him when Janine makes a shock announcement. What is it?
