Things just might be looking up for Max Branning as a heavily pregnant Lauren soon returns to Walford in the hopes of convincing her sister Abi to help clear their dad’s name as the “Who Killed Lucy?” saga continues.
Max’s trial will be a very exciting storyline and Lauren’s return will be explosive because she knows the truth-that Max didn’t kill Lucy.
Sharon and Jane are shocked when Lauren returns from New Zealand and tells them that she will be appearing in court to defend Max. Lauren’s arrival will cause chaos in the Beale household as the family struggles to keep the truth of Lucy’s death a secret.
Lauren tells Jane that she needs to tell the truth, but things are never as easy as they seem and as Lauren turns to leave, her water breaks!
Lauren is taken to hospital and gives birth to her son Louie – who is presumably named after Lou Beale.
Abi, Jane and Carol meet their newest family member. Carol looks on as a smiling Jane holds baby Louie, but will her happiness last?
