Bobby Beale’s murderous urges are getting the better of him again.
The murderous schoolboy – who killed his sister Lucy Beale in a fit of rage in EastEnders – is set to strike again when he attacks his mum Jane with a hockey stick.
Having overheard a conversation about his future at the boarding school that’s so far kept his psychotic behaviour in check, Bobby strikes out and smacks Jane over the head, leaving her unconscious on the floor.
With Jane fighting for her life, Bobby runs out of the house and tries to find his dad to confess what he’s done – hockey stick still in hand.
Unfortunately for the Beales’ littlest killer, at the time Ian is giving a speech during Martin and Stacey’s wedding so everyone finds out what Bobby’s done.
Did no-one tell him that it’s his big brother Steven’s job to try and kill Jane? And she should watch out as he’s soon returning to the show, which is just what the poor woman needs.
Back on the day in question, Ian rushes back to the house to find a very nearly dead Jane still unconscious on the floor, while Bobby still clutches the hockey stick.
But it will only get worse for the family as now their friends and neighbours know what a psychopath Bobby is, and then the police arrive to arrest him.
Despite grandmother Kathy’s protestations, he’s hauled in for questioning from DI Keeble.
It has been teased that a shocking turn of events will turn everything on its head and leave the Beales fearing the worst.
