I don't have a problem with Steven's bisexuality not being explored while he's in a relationship with a woman, but the strange thing is that no-one has questioned Steven being with a woman after he dated Stacey and that went pair-shaped because he came onto Christian. If this was real life the characters would at least mention it.

 

That's it. I don't care if it's not explored, but it's just that it never even existed.

unless they do in fact make Steven gay/bi then the show would have to find guys for Ben & Johnny, assuming they don't end up together

Well, well, well. Ann Mitchell is returning as Cora for an indeterminate period of time. I hope this shuts down those bozos at those other message boards who insisted Cora was never returning. Never say never about returning characters with shows like EE. If you do you really don't have a clue how these shows work.

Good to know. I was just checking out when she was supposed to return the other day.

Thanks. I thought for sure it was Will Savage but the videos cut before the cast list.

I think it's a shame Preston is being written as a little twerp but on the other hand I think it's realistic, as a teenage boy he probably would throw his toys out of the pram when he didn't get his own way and not be able to have an adult relationship. It's like he doesn't understand Michelle's woes but Michelle doesn't help matters giving into temptation the way she does. Still fascinating though. Michelle is my favourite character now.

Not enjoying FakeMichelle's doomed cougarmance with Pressy. It all feels flat to me. That said i can't wait to see the fallout. I can't envision Susan Tully playing this. I'm dreading Sylvie's death.

Preston's American accent is getting worse somehow?

 

Why is Michelle always wearing that overcoat? It's almost like they want to make the actress come across as unattractive. Not that she is...she just seems like the "before" in a makeover show. And she is so cold that I can't imagine her having sex or any teenage boy wanting to have sex with her. Much less actively pursuing her.

 

I like the actress playing Bex a lot. Why did they speed this story up so much? It would at least be more interesting if Michelle and Preston were having an active affair while he was dating Bex but as it is they only made it official that day.

I think the reveal of Michelle and Preston would have been better without adding Bex. It detracts from the story somehow. I also feel like the writing is devoid of a lot of emotion. I like the idea of the storyline and am still enjoying it but I think the writing could be a lot better for it.

 

ETA: For goodness sake and they threw that car crash in right at the end! Totally unneeded!

The climax of this Michelle/Preston/Bex storyline has so much less impact because Bex and Preston only seemed to be dating for five minutes. Everything about this has been rushed to a laughable degree.

This story has ruined Michelle. In a moment of cougar madness she might have killed 3 people.:rolleyes: Susan Tully was right not to come back to this.

Three EastEnders characters possibly dead as Michelle Fowler crashes car into Beales' after Preston affair exposed

Kush Kazemi and Cathy Beale's lives hang in the balance

It was all flat. You could see the strings - it was supposed to be very clever that they were with the same man, they'd find out in the Vic, of course Martin would beat him up, and then the hilarious crash that seemed like something from many years ago, like one of those old syndicated shows from the late '80s. Michelle's pleading and whining was embarrassing - I felt so embarrassed when she was cowering. That was NOT Michelle. James Bye as Martin salvaged the only parts that were worth salvaging, when he told Michelle how ashamed he was of her. Jenna Russell was good in that scene and in the pilled out moments near the end but it was all just trash. Sadly the ratings will likely be good so they will keep going to this well of trash.

 

Denise/Kush and Sylvie/Tina were a lot better.

Ooo Lord. Thank God I am taking a break from this show. From reading these comments, this drivel sounds horrid. 

 

So Michelle possibly killed 3 people over teenaged d-ck? :rolleyes:

 

If this is all they had planned for Michelle, the should've left the character off the canvas forever. 

 

Poor Michelle. The character can't get a good comeback story. Vicki, her daughter, had crappy stories in the 00s. Mark, her son, was the scion of EE's biggest secret and it fell flat. The Fowlers should've never been brought back.

She was mixing sleeping pills and alcohol and jumped in the car when she heard Preston was leaving. It was hilarious.

Oh joy.

 

Michelle's not only a damn pedophile, she's a drunk, pill popper, and possible murderess. This sh-t is depressing. I'm glad I took my hiatus from the show when I did. 

 

I can't even laugh over this scene. I'm just appalled. I borderline wanna cry.
