Mel Owen and Sharon Mitchell have some decisions to make in EastEnders in the wake of the reveal that it was Sharon who took the money following the heist. With Mel having explained to Sharon that her son Hunter is at stake, Sharon conceded and admitted that she had taken the money from right under her husband’s nose.
Mel knows that she needs to get the money back to Ciara if she wants to see Hunter again but she is torn as she and Sharon have developed a mutual understanding from their conversation. We know that next week Mel is reunited with Hunter – but it may not be as clear cut as her handing the cash over.
Mel and Sharon formulate their plan of action and head to Ciara’s house to speak to her – and from the pictures that have been released, it doesn’t seem like they have a bag of cash with them. So what are they up to and are they playing a dangerous game?
Will they take action to ensure that Sharon is not implicated but which also leaves Ciara forced to release Hunter back to his mum? And are the pair plotting to bring down both Ciara and Aidan and end this mess once and for all?
Fans will have to wait and see what the two women have in mind but it’s clear that they are out to prove they are not to be messed with by anyone.
EastEnders airs these scenes on Monday 5th February at 8pm on BBC One.
