Next week in EastEnders, Stacey finds herself caught in a tricky situation when she double-books a romantic rendezvous with Martin at the allotments. To make matters worse, she has a client she can’t let down. Martin, trying to be understanding, suggests she go on the date to earn some money while he takes care of the kids downstairs.
At the Slater household, reality hits Martin hard when he overhears Stacey flirting with her client. Feeling hurt and betrayed, he storms out of the house, leaving Stacey disappointed and confused about what went wrong.
Meanwhile, Jean happens to bump into Martin, and they bond over their struggle to accept Stacey’s cam work. Determined to overcome their reservations, Martin invites Stacey to meet him at Walford East for dinner. Over their meal, they discuss Martin’s housing issue, and they agree that he will temporarily move in with the Slaters. However, an innocent conversation about dessert triggers a heated argument, and Stacey realizes that Martin is not okay with her cam work.
As Stacey leaves, Martin turns to alcohol and ends up causing a drunken fight at The Vic. The situation escalates further when Stacey decides to have a candid conversation with Martin about her secret cam dates, hoping to put his mind at ease. Unfortunately, Theo overhears their discussion and becomes furious, feeling insulted by their assumptions about him.
Later in the week, Stacey receives a shocking sexual request from her private client and confides in her friend Eve. Before she can respond, Martin stumbles upon something alarming on Stacey’s laptop, leading to a dramatic confrontation that threatens to blow everything up.
To make matters worse, Stacey receives a message from her client, who reveals that he knows personal details about her life. Fearing she might have a stalker, Stacey becomes petrified and tries to uncover the identity of the person behind these disturbing messages.
As the situation intensifies, Stacey receives flowers from her private client, indicating that he knows where she lives. Concerned for her safety, Eve discreetly approaches Jack, questioning whether the police can help. However, Jack informs her that based on the theoretical scenario she describes, no crime has been committed.
