On the previous episode of “EastEnders,” Ben Mitchell (Max Bowden) was seen violently threatening Rainie Cross (Tanya Franks) after she discovered that he was behind Phil Mitchell’s (Steve McFadden) involvement in human trafficking.
Phil was shocked when he found out that Ben double-crossed him, a discovery that came on the heels of Louise Mitchell’s (Tilly Keeper) kidnapping. He stormed back home and confronts Ben right away.
He demanded that Ben apologize to Louise for putting her in such a horrifying ordeal. Phil also kicked Ben out of the house and vowed to cut ties with him for good.
EastEnders Spoilers – Ben Mitchell’s Wicked Side Returns
Ben will try to get back on Phil’s good side and pretend that he is turning over a new leaf. However, his wicked side resurfaces when he is confronted by the seemingly unafraid Rainie, who is already aware of what he is really up to.
At first, it would seem as though Ben was changing for the better. However, it was revealed that he hasn’t changed his ways at all. He tried to take advantage of the feud between Rainie and Stuart Highway (Ricky Champ). Not only that, he even tried to sabotage Rainie’s car sales and then offered to fix the car himself.
When Rainie found out that it was Ben who sabotaged the car, she immediately distanced herself from him. But he was relentless. He went into Rainie’s trailer and pretended that Phil sent him over to collect money.
