In EastEnders, Stacey Slater (Lacey Turner) is never far from the drama. Actually, it seems to be with her everywhere she goes.
She’s expected to continue doing that until at least Christmas Day, when she might murder Suki Panesar, Linda Carter, Denise Fox, Sharon Watts, Letitia Dean, Kathy Beale, and Gillian Taylfoth (Balvinder Sopal).
The beloved character received a lot of attention in the flash-forward episode of the BBC soap opera, which revealed the dead body but kept the identity of its victim a secret.
If you’ll excuse the pun, Stacey was seen with blood on her hands, indicating that she was actively involved in the murder.
However, executive producer Chris Clenshaw has teased that Stacey will do ‘something she’s never done before’ as this storyline progresses.
Not only has Stacey been dealing with the rising cost of living, but also struggling to keep her pregnant daughter out of harm’s way’, he said.
‘This year Stacey finds herself doing something she’s never done before in an effort to protect her family and unborn grandchild.’
We know that Chris isn’t referring to murder here, as Stacey is no stranger to a whodunnit.
She was one of the 10 suspects in the infamous Who Killed Archie Mitchell? plotline. Stacey was finally revealed to be the murderer during a live episode on the show’s 25th anniversary.
Of course, this doesn’t rule her out of being a part of the murder, but it does imply that Stacey has more in store for the future.
Lacey has participated in both the first flash-forward episode and the first live episode of EastEnders.
Even after being involved in such a large scale whodunnit in the past, Lacey is thrilled to have been included in this one.
‘It was really exciting when we were told’, she revealed.
‘The six of us went up for a meeting with Chris and he told us all about this idea he had about using a flashforward scene, and I think it’s really exciting to do something we’ve never done before.
‘For it to be with six women is also really exciting because that is not something that happens very often.’
