Back on 23 March, Prime Minister Boris Johnson announced closure of workplaces across Britain in an attempt to reduce the spread of the deadly CoronaVirus (COVID-19).
Elsrtree Studios, like all of us, aren't above the law and therefore had to close its doors until further notice. This meant for the first time in 35 years, EastEnders had to stop being produced by the BBC.
Of course, Jon Sen (Executive Producer - EastEnders), like everyone else, had no idea of the Pandemic which has intruded on near 67 billion lives in the United Kingdom but watching tonight's episode, you would have to think - did he?
This evening's episode - directed by Thomas Hescott - will give you a terrific series finale feel at the closing moments of the programme and it will leave you with a lot of "what if" questions.
As already revealed, Jay Brown (Jamie Borthwick) visits his brother, Ben Mitchell (Max Bowden) but things soon become alarming when Ben collapses because of his deteriorating health complications.
Kirsty "Dotty" Cotton (Milly Zero) will confront Ian Beale (Adam Woodyatt) after he set her up to be arrested in yesterday's episode. After the war of words in this edition - written by Katie Douglas - viewers will be sure to have questions on what's next for Kirsty & Ian's developing rivalry.
No episode would be complete without a visit to The Queen Victoria and the iconic public house is at the heart of tonight's showing.
Phil Mitchell (Steve McFadden) has been wanting to buy back The Queen Vic from Mick Carter (Danny Dyer) and Linda Carter (Kellie Bright) for months but with Linda throwing a spanner in the works of Phil's plans it will be a back and forth battle for the Mitchell patriarch.
As the new owner of The Queen Vic is revealed it will be a Doof Doof for the ages. The ending will leave you with wanting so much more from the BBC One Serial Drama and the incapability to wait until the next episode.
EastEnders airs BBC One, tonight, at 19:30.
