2. Rocky's wife makes explosive arrival
Rocky, Reiss and Sonia then join forces to strategize around his big secret but he soon asked them to try and track down his wife Jo with his other pal Harvey Monroe (Ross Boatman).
Unfortunately, all their efforts to track Rocky's wife down are in vain and Sonia tries to reason with Rocky.
She encourages him to be honest with Kathy about his life situation.
But Freddie Slater (Bobby Brazier) soon gets involved and manages to find Jo within minutes after spotting Reiss struggling.
When he learns about Rocky's lies, however, the lad decides to take revenge – before revealing he found Jo AND gave her Kathy Beale's address.
Jo (played by Vicki Michelle) later rocks up No.45, much to Rocky's horror, and she reveals her identity to a shocked Kathy.
All hell breaks loose but could it be the end of Rocky's relationship with Kathy Beale?
3. Shock proposal
Actor Danny Walters reprised his role in late 2022 as Phil Mitchell's feud with DCI Samantha Keeble took a turn.
In recent scenes of the BBC One soap, the character's shared chemistry with Sharon Watts (played by Letitia Dean) has been off the charts.
Unfortunately, the pair were unable to give their relationship another go when Sharon figured out he'd had a fling with long-term foe Sam Mitchell (Kim Medcalf).
Keanu tried to find comfort in the form of Chelsea Fox (Zaraah Abrahams) but things were made difficult for him as Ravi Gulati has been lurking around the hairdresser.
Coming up, Keanu is downbeat when he's dismissed by Sharon once again.
However, he receives some words of encouragement from Sam and even from his mother Karen (Lorraine Stanley) who begrudgingly shares her advice.
Bolstered by their words, Keanu takes action and makes a huge declaration of love to Sharon at the gym.
He goes a step further by proposing to her, leaving Sharon horrified in front of stunned onlookers.
Unfortunately, she soon makes a sad discovery about Keanu's proposal but he doesn't give up on her.
Keanu hurries to a shocked and angry Sharon, declaring his love once again.
In later scenes, Kat Slater (Jessie Wallace) arrives and encourages her pal Sharon to listen to her heart.
She remains torn but a frank conversation with Sam convinces her to think things through and she invites Keanu over.
Could it be the end of the line for Sharon and Keanu?

4. Lola gets devastating update
Months after being diagnosed with a terminal brain tumour, Lola Pearce has been trying to make the most out of her limited time.
But the hairdresser portrayed by Danielle Harold gets a heart-breaking update on her health.
This week, Lola busies herself with making preparations for her charity fundraising event, which she thought about in recent scenes of the long-running program.
Unfortunately, she's stopped dead in her tracks when the hospital ask her to come in for an early appointment.
Jay Brown (Jamie Borthwick) tries to hide his concerns from a panicked Lola and remains optimistic about the visit.
While in hospital, Lola gets a devastating update on her health and feels more determined than ever to live life to the fullest.
She insists that she wants to plough on with the fundraiser in later scenes and asks Sam Mitchell (Kim Medcalf) if she can hire Peggy's for the event.
Sadly, Sam declines, leading to Lola lashing out before Phil Mitchell (Steve McFadden) steps in, promising her that Peggy's is hers for free if she needs it.
Lola is touched by his generosity but a drunken Sam feels humiliated that her brother has undermined her once again.
But as she prepares for the event, Lola's mother Emma Harding (Patsy Kensit) is finding it hard to cope with the news her days are running out.
After a hugely successful fundraiser, Lola asks Emma to join her and Lexi’s girly night in.
Much to Lola's shock, Emma awkwardly declines the offer, which raises alarm bells with Jay who fears that Emma is unable to cope with Lola’s declining health.
Jay confronts Emma before she drowns her sorrows in The Vic.
She later opens up about her mum-guilt with Sam Mitchell.
5. Linda hears from Janine
Linda was crushed when she found out her husband Mick could have died while trying to save her and Janine Butcher's lives.
The former pub landlord was ready to fix his marriage with Linda when he found that his last wife Janine had been scheming and lying behind his back to keep them apart.
Since then, the Walford villain was arrested and thrown in prison, leaving Linda to recover from her loss.
The road has, thus far, been paved with obstacles but Alfie Moon (Shane Richie) has sometimes managed to bring a smile back to Linda's face.
However, Linda frets as she waits for an update from her lawyer on the status of Janine Butcher’s plea and starts to worry about the potential of a trial.
As regular viewers of the London-based program will know, Janine has been trying to sell Mick's half of the Vic from behind bars.
In later scenes, Linda is encouraged by her pal Sharon Watts (Letitia Dean) and Alfie to attend the gym opening.
While there, Linda and Alfie bond over their shared history with boxing – and she gets an update on Janine.
What will it be?
Later on, Linda is humiliated by Alfie.
