It’s not looking good for two EastEnders favourites as they are both facing prison thanks to altercations with now dead Leo King (Tom Wells). But could Kush Kazemi (Davood Ghadami) be about to make the ultimate sacrifice to help Whitney Dean (Shona McGarty) – and will it work?
Kush stands accused of trying to kill Leo when he fell from the balcony but he is sticking to the truth that it was an accident. Meanwhile, Whitney is in prison accused of Leo’s murder after she killed him in self defence – but her case is looking shaky.
Gray Atkins (Toby Alexander-Smith) has taken on both cases and the pressure starts to hit him when he speaks to Whitney in prison and learns more information and also absorbs the state he finds her in. He lies to Tiffany (Maisie Smith) about how she is but when he arrives home and Chantelle (Jessica Plummer) tries to help him, his stress manifests itself into a violent outburst.
Gray wants to drop Whitney’s case but his boss insists that he keeps it on – and he also wants him to convince Kush to plead guilty as it will make things look better for Whitney when her bail hearing comes.
Gray approaches Kush with the advice to plead guilty and Kat Moon (Jessie Wallace) is horrified. She confronts Gray over his advice but she is then left conflicted when he explains the situation and reveals that Kush accepting guilt will help Whitney’s case.
On the way, Gray continues to plant doubts in Kush’s mind but what decision will he make when he prepares to make his plea? Will he say he is guilty – and will it be the right thing to do? Or could he be consigning both himself and Whitney to prison?
Whitney’s bail hearing follows and with Gray not coping with the stress of everything related to the case, tensions soon rise and Whitney realises that there is something amiss.
As arguments are fired across the courtroom and Whitney is forced to hear accusations against her again, her patience thins and she seems ready to snap.
Is she about to land herself into serious trouble if an outburst follows?
