THEO Hawthorne is increasingly determined to keep Stacey Slater all to himself.
The troubled EastEnders character, played by William Ellis, takes things to another level next week and leaves them fearing for their lives.
Eve Unwin (Heather Peace) will go through another rough patch following Caz’s arrival at Albert Square.
Next week on BBC One, her former lover Suki Panesar (Balvinder Sopal) is worried as she makes her sleep on a bench after being drunk all night.
After a face-to-face interview, Eve and Suki head to the police station to share new information about their sister’s death.
However, Eve is furious to learn that Caz has served her sentence and the case is now closed.
Eve heads to the Albert and gets drunk again into oblivion while Suki enlists Stacey’s (Lacey Turner) help to track Eve down.
Unfortunately, she tears this away from her coffee date with Theo and he’s furious.
When Stacey learns the truth about Eve’s sister’s death, she panics when Felix Baker (Matthew Morrison) reveals that she left to meet Caz.
Meanwhile, Eve has met Caz in front of the Albert, leaving Suki and Stacey to collect the shards for her.
Stacey takes a shaken Caz back to #31 to try to defuse the situation, but Caz is startled again when Suki and Eve arrive.
Once alone with Caz, Theo decides to take advantage of the situation to further his own ends by encouraging Caz to go to the police in hopes of taking Eve out of the picture once and for all.
But Suki listens and quickly interrupts the conversation.

Caz apologizes for the toilet, but it’s not long before Suki learns that she went to the police station.
Things only get worse for Stacey in later scenes when she comes home to find her bedroom trashed.
Later, Martin Fowler (James Bye) returns from a trip to Bulgaria and his suspicions about Theo are reignited by Eve.
Is Theo running out of time?
EastEnders airs Monday to Thursday at 7.30pm on BBC One.
