What on Earth is wrong with Dr Gaddas? Why hasn’t Carla been given blood tests when she’s been saying that her condition is not like it was last time, hearing voices?
Leaving aside the fact that everyone can get an appointment with Dr G while the rest of the country is hanging on for June at the earliest, the woman quite clearly wouldn’t know the Ten Plagues of Egypt from a cold.
Struggling to cope yet again, Carla makes another appointment and Dr G suggests that she take an extended break and go back on her anti-psychotic drugs. Good grief, woman. Blood test!
Small wonder that Stephen keeps getting away with lacing Carla’s drinks with LSD.
Having pocketed her keys from the factory, he lets himself into her flat when she’s asleep and drops them back into her bag (Query: how did she get in then, and where’s Peter? Hopefully all will be revealed).

Next, he heads for the kitchen and turns on the grill. What does he hope that will accomplish?
It’s hardly a gas oven and a naked flame. Carla has form with fire, so are we heading for disaster again?
How many flaming (geddit?) storylines like this can one woman have?
One thing’s for certain: if she went to Dr Gaddas with third-degree burns, the GP would give her a Band Aid and tell her to watch daytime TV for a month.
It’s not a good week for Adam, who’s worried about his business. About time.
The fact that he poses as an expert in every area of law, despite clearly spending more time at the hairdresser’s than anywhere else, makes him look like the Dr Gaddas of the legal world.
Dee-Dee is horrified to find Damon in the office and sees red when Adam suggests they take him on as a client.
Forget Dee-Dee, it’s Damon who should be worried.
Tracy finally relents when Daisy asks her if she’ll do the flowers for the wedding. But there’s a condition – she and Amy must be bridesmaids.
I already see low-flying cake.

It’s a thin line between getting your feet under the table and entrenching them so deep they take up the floorboards.
Emma has caused problems since day one and there’s more trouble ahead when she clashes with Jay over different approaches to Lola’s illness.
When Emma sees Jay up close and personal with a girl, she suspects the worst, and now Lola’s in a state, suspecting Jay of cheating.
Great. Just what she needs. Heartbroken Jay is stunned that Lola would think he’d stoop so low, and the pair share a deep but painful conversation.
There’s one thing both Jay and Emma could do: buy Lola a new dressing gown. She looks as if she’s had a run-in with a deranged flamingo.
There are more money issues at the Slaters’ when the fridge breaks down, but Stacey’s not worried as she has her stash of stolen cash. Why are things so bad?
Eve’s doing a ton of work for Nish – and she’s supposed to be a hotshot lawyer. Surely she could pick up work from the many criminals who must be facing trial in Walford?
Realising she could go to jail and lose her kids, Stacey decides to return the money and enlists Jean’s help in distracting the security guard. Fat lot of good she’ll be, with her nervy disposition in times of crisis.

Lacey stands up for Stacey
EastEnders’ Lacey Turner reckons there’s a ‘good reason’ for her character Stacey to have stolen money, saying, ‘It indicates how desperate she’s got.’ Now she’s consumed with guilt, because she’s ‘not a thief’. Well, other women’s husbands aside.
She’s not the first EastEnder to be under the cosh financially, but she’s reluctant to accept help.
‘It’s a pride thing,’ Lacey says, adding, ‘I think it’s really hard for Stacey to lie.’ Really? Three words. Max. Branning. Affair.
Having already whacked Suzy with a brick when she threatened to expose him as a grass, Callum’s a man with a mission as he looms sinisterly over a helpless Leyla
Puh-lease, not again. Is there anyone in this village who hasn’t been kidnapped?
This time it’s Leyla who, after realising she has endangered Jacob, ends up in hot water herself when she’s kidnapped by Callum, who binds and gags her (did the props department get a stash of ropes and gags at discount price?).
Having already whacked Suzy with a brick when she threatened to expose him as a grass, Callum’s a man with a mission as he looms sinisterly over a helpless Leyla.
The upside of all this is that Suzy being unconscious at least shuts her up for five minutes.
It’s clearly Endangered Species Week because Cathy’s reckless behaviour puts her life in danger, too.
As per usual, Bob is too distracted to notice his daughter, and even a reminder from Brenda about his responsibilities doesn’t help.
Still, at least Cathy hasn’t been kidnapped. Yet.
Paddy has certainly opened the floodgates about male mental health, and when the Man Club reconvenes, Jimmy opens up.
Paddy also makes a big decision about his future, although it’s clear he’s still struggling. Bob really needs to join this group, although it does require that guys listen as well as talk.
Surely there must be a spare gag hanging around. Time to raid that props department again.
