Sunday night’s episode of EastEnders shocked viewers when Stacey Slater learned that her daughter Lily, 12, was pregnant.
Lily Slater, a young character on EastEnders, was dealt a devastating blow on Sunday night when she learned she was pregnant. The 12-year-old was taken to the hospital right away because of stomach pains, even though it was thought that she may have been poisoned by carbon monoxide. The news that her daughter was expecting horrified her mother, Stacey Slater (Lacey Turner).
In dramatic scenes, Stacey told a confused Lily the news as she lay in a hospital bed.
When asked whether she could go home, Stacey said: “No, not just yet.
“This is Holly she is a social worker and this is DC Booth. We have been talking, they are really nice and just want to chat with you.”
“Am I in trouble?” the youngster asked in a panic as Stacey reassured her: “No.
“You are pregnant, according to a few tests the doctors ran.”
As Stacey went on, the two started crying: “You are not in trouble, I assure you.
“They need to know how it happened, darling, regardless of how it occurred. They need to know this because you are so young.
They’ll take you to a small interview location, which will be less intimidating than a police station.
“No,” Lily pleaded, begging her mum to let her go home.
“They’re all happy you’re safe,” Stacey sobbed. “Then you can come home.”
Fans have, however, turned to social media to share their theories about Lily’s plot, with many claiming to have identified the baby’s father.
Both Nugget and newcomer Freddie (Bobby Brazier) have been suggested as potential suspects (Juhaim Rasul Choudhury).
Nat postulated: “Just finished watching EastEnders on @bbceastenders, and I know who Lily’s father is—Ricky it’s Branning! Who can forget the episode where Ricky answered Denise’s question about his whereabouts in the pub by saying he was going “to meet a mate”? That mate was Lily.” (sic)
I believe Lily had sex with an older boy or even a man rather than the obvious young boys on the square, according to @Onelifee3.
Added by user @MarvelM31948178 while “WTF, Lily is expecting! The father, in my opinion, will be Freddie.” (sic)
“Could Ricky actually be Lily’s baby Daddy? She’s had a lot to deal with recently, what with Jean’s illness & he’s also had everything with Amy’s self-harm & might of been feeling a little neglected potentially? Can’t see it being Denzel he likes Amy. Will? Nugget?” Grianne theorised.
“There are two possibilities here… Either Lily’s done something with a boy her age like Tommy or Nugget, or this is a new sexual abuse storyline coming about,” user @Mousyneska predicted.
User @luuleey_ quizzed: “WHAT!!! Lily’s pregnant? who’s the daddy?! #Eastenders.”
Diana asked: “Lily is pregnant? BY WHO?????? #Eastenders.” (sic)
“I was right!!! Lily’s pregnant at age 12. I think Ricky Jr. is the father,” user @BovaryCee claimed.
