Amid the excitement of preparations for the Jubilee in upcoming EastEnders episodes, we can’t forget what a traumatic few months it’s been for a lot of the characters.
Mick notices Karen leaving a planning meeting for the Jubilee and, guessing that she’s upset at the thought that her daughter Chantelle won’t be there, goes to find her.
They decide to honour both Chantelle and also Tina Carter – another of Gray’s victims. Mick asks Kathy (Gillian Taylforth) to host a party in Tina’s honour and decides he wants to say a few words.
Meanwhile Karen thinks about what she wants to do to celebrate Chantelle’s life. In emotional scenes she finds a way to commemorate her daughter as the Square comes together to celebrate the Queen’s Jubilee.
