Coming up next on “EastEnders,” as Hunter opens up to her mom, telling her about his fears that their secret might be exposed, the dreaded knock on their door came. Ray’s former wives are back and demanding answers from Mel regarding Ray’s whereabouts.
Mel and Hunter’s secret was almost exposed in the soap’s previous episode. Viewers may recall that Hunter Owen shot his stepfather Ray Kelly in the woodlands. It all started when Ray kidnapped Hunter to lure Mel into the woods. She managed to take control of the situation when she pointed a gun at Ray and demanded the release of her son, Hunter. She freed up the injured Hunter, and they both got in the car and tried to flee.
