Read on for all the EastEnders spoilers for the week of 4-8 October 2021:

Dotty’s mother Sandy arrives

Dotty and Rocky’s nefarious plan to fleece Sonia takes another twist, thanks to an unexpected arrival in the Square: Dotty’s mum Sandy.

In scenes to be shown on Tuesday, Dotty will be seen relaunching Ruby’s with a high-profile event at the club. But just as the party is getting started, a drunk woman turns up and announces that she’s Sandy Gibson. But this is no happy mother-daughter reunion – in fact, the first thing she does is hurl abuse in Dotty’s direction.

In the midst of all this chaos, Rocky can’t help but fret that loose cannon Sandy will end up blowing his cover…

Suki attacks Honey

Her enforced evening shifts at the Minute Mart have left Honey feeling apprehensive, and when she begs Suki for more time off, the answer is a firm no. Honey bites back – this is all about the kiss. But Suki is immovable, and Honey ends up telling Billy and Jay that she can’t go to Miami with Janet.

Later, Honey finally admits to her partner Jay that Suki recently tried to kiss her. But when he takes matters into his own hands by telling Kheerat, a row breaks out, with Jay slammed up against a wall after being accused of being a liar.

When Suki then hears about the fracas, she’s left mortified and pays Honey a visit. But despite Honey assuring her that she has nothing to be ashamed of, Suki slaps and threatens her.

Honey, though, holds her nerve and says that it won’t just be the kiss she’ll tell everyone about – there’s also what Suki recently told her about Jags…

Keegan announces his exit

Money worries continue to plague Tiffany and she’ll be seen on Monday venting to Sonia and Whitney about Keegan having frozen their bank account. Her solution is to take a half share of Keegan’s stall – a move that leaves him begging with her to not snatch his livelihood away.

By Thursday, the pressure has obviously got too much for Keegan, who announces that he’s spoken to Keanu, who’s said that he can stay with him for a while. But will he really end up leaving Walford behind?

Martin gets desperate

Martin is also in need of cash, so Nancy suggests that he ask Peter for his stall back. But Peter has a counter proposal: it’s the chippy or nothing. Martin accepts, but is later left ranting to Nancy when the shifts Peter has put him down for end up ruining his plans with Hope.

In the end, it’s Sharon who comes up with some consoling words of wisdom for Martin: he’s just doing what he has to in order to support his family. But this doesn’t stop Martin and his buddy Zack from getting payback on Peter when they swipe his tablet and batter it in the chippy’s deep-fat fryer!

Drugs test drama for Rainie

When Bernie and Keegan ask Rainie to do a drugs test, she panics and tells them that she took a sleeping pill the night before.

But when Bernie later spies Rainie in the company of Sandy, she reaches the conclusion that a drugs deal is going down and voices her concerns to her mum that Rainie is using again. So, what result will Rainie get when she takes the test in Friday’s episode?
