“EastEnders” villain Stuart Highway (Ricky Champ) is on his way to redemption, but a shocking revelation of his past could put his attempt to be in best behavior in jeopardy. Rainie Branning (Tanya Franks) overheard him talking about being into drugs in the past, which Dot Branning (June Brown) does not know about.
Dot has taken Stuart under her wing, and she’s the person who’s helping Stuart onto his road to recovery. However, Dot may be in danger when she finds about Stuart’s dark secret.
In a Narcotics Anonymous meeting earlier this week, Stuart confessed the full extent of his dodgy past, mentioning that he dabbled with drugs but Dot does not know about it. He told the group about how grateful he is to be with Dot, whom he considers a mother now.
EastEnders – Rainie Will Use Stuart’s Confession To Her Advantage
“I’m not so anxious now. Living with her calms me. I had a few paranoid spells before I moved in,” he said. “I’ve lost my brother and my mate but I’ve gained someone who proper cares for me. For the first time in a long, long time I feel safe. It’s like she’s my sanctuary.”
Rainie heard about this confession, and spoilers tease that she might use it to her advantage. When she saw Stuart at the Queen Vic, she could not stop herself from taunting him, using the remarks he made at the NA meeting.
Stuart wonders how she came to know it and realizes that she was there. He pleads with her not to tell Dot, fearing that it would ruin their relationship. But will Rainie keep her mouth shut?
EastEnders – Will Dot Ask Stuart To Leave Her Home?
While Stuart genuinely likes Dot, “EastEnders” spoilers tease that he might react aggressively when Dot discovers his secret. Dot has told him about her son Nick Cotton (John Altman) and that she supplied him with drugs that led to his unfortunate death a few years ago.
Learning that Stuart has a past with drugs as well, Dot would be reminded of her son, and she might actually ask Stuart to leave her home.
