Stacey is stunned when Alfie explains that Kat is going ask Janine to retract her statement about Stacey stabbing her. Although initially dubious, Stacey decides that Kat’s plan may work after all, meaning she can return to Walford without looking over her shoulder. While Kat’s at the prison with Janine, Alfie takes the chance to ask Stacey to leave the Square for Kat’s sake. Stacey is seen sneaking out of the house by Lauren, Cora and Patrick.
At the prison, Janine tells Kat that she’s willing to let Stacey off the hook – but only if Stacey asks nicely in person. Kat realises that it would be a huge risk. Back in the Square, Kat panics when Alfie tells her Stacey has left. She’s relieved when she finds Stacey, filling her in on Janine’s demands. Surprisingly, Stacey agrees to do it.
