A frightening flashback streak this Friday, January 7 foreshadows the unrest to come, with some clues as to who is in danger.
Before all of this, however, Marnie recruits Romeo (Owen Warner) and Juliet (Niamh Blackshaw) to help her with fundraising for Dee Vallery Hospital.
Juliet, however, has other things on her mind, and she even enlists James (Gregory Finnegan) for help, presumably in her plan to woo Peri Lomax (Ruby O’Donnell).
But Yazz (Haiesha Mistry) sets foot there by revealing Juliet’s plan to Peri! The question is: does Peri also hear the wedding bells?
It remains to be seen, but the following scenes will see a horrific explosion engulf Marnie’s establishment during the fundraising event, putting many lives in jeopardy.
Martine Deveraux (Kelle Bryan), Jack Osborne (Jimmy McKenna), Mercedes, Cleo and Cher McQueen (Jennifer Metcalfe, Nadine Mulkerrin and Bethannie Hare) are among those whose lives are in danger from the explosion, along with Toby and Celeste Faroe (Bobby Gordon and Andréa Ali).
Peri, meanwhile, achieves what she really wants as she finds herself in a life-threatening situation, but is it too late to make her dreams come true?
Elsewhere, the McQueens show how much they stick together when Mercedes saves Cher’s life, but things take a turn when they realize one of their own is still in the building.
A heroic act is then committed, but a shocking lie comes at a deadly cost.
Kidnapper Ethan (Matthew James-Bailey), meanwhile, catches up with Maya (Ky Discala), and their relationship comes to a thunderous end – with a bang.
Marnie and Jack are caught under the rubble, and there are glimmers of potential romance.
The question is, with so much devastation in the store, who will make it out alive? And besides, who won’t?
