Lily Slater, a young pregnant actress from EastEnders, recently decided what she wanted to do, but the family is still dealing with some unexpected challenges.
Fans of the BBC soap opera are probably aware that Ryan Malloy, played by Neil McDermott, will return to the scene after learning the shocking news about his 12-year-old daughter Lily (Lillia Turner). The Slaters are split when EastEnders returns because Ryan has been absent for the majority of Lily’s life. But as problems arise, Lily must make a decision that will alter her life: will she leave Walford and spend more time with her dad?
The BBC soap will soon feature scenes where half term is well underway.
On the stall, Lily spends some quality time with her aunt Whitney Dean (Shona McGarty).
Later, the young girl starts to interrogate Lacey Turner’s Stacey Slater about Ryan, her father.
Whitney and Stacey argue after realizing that Whitney has influenced Lily’s questioning.
Frustrated, Whitney makes a commitment to allow Stacey to come clean to Ryan when she’s ready.
When the pregnant woman’s test results for her baby are delayed for an additional two weeks, she becomes upset and, with Zack Hudson’s help, decides to finally confide in Ryan (James Farrar).
While on the phone, she admits Lily is also pregnant after allowing her emotions to take control.
In another scene, a frazzled Stacey hurts her back, prompting Freddie Slater (Bobby Brazier) to volunteer to assist with the bap van and become an instant hit with the customers.
Whitney, who is filled with guilt, visits the Slaters’ home to inform Stacey that she has told Ryan the truth.
However, Stacey receives an unsettling phone call from Kat Slater before she has a chance to say everything (Jessie Wallace).
She explains that someone broke into Stacey’s van. When Ryan soon appears on the Square, things quickly get worse.
Later, a sheepish Lily shows up to see her father as a shocked Stacey overhears him in the café.
Ryan offers to help them financially and she enjoys their time together.
Later, Ryan has a confrontation with Sam Mitchell and Jack Branning (Scott Maslen) at The Vic (Kim Medcalf).
Stacey gets upset when Sam, Ricky Mitchell (Frankie Day), and Ryan show up to support Lily during her first scan.
Ryan drops a bombshell just before the scan—what could it be?
Lily and Ricky are ecstatic to see their unborn child for the first time during the scan.
However, after using some harsh language with one another, Stacey and Ryan are soon asked to leave.
Lily is upset with Stacey for how she treated Ryan at home, and Stacey explains to her that Martin Fowler, played by James Bye, is her father and the one who has always stood up for her.
Lily makes a significant choice because she feels like a burden to Stacey and is conflicted by her family’s financial situation.
It’s possible that Lily has made up her mind to leave Walford and move in with her father.
Ryan’s suggestion may have started the argument during the scan because Lily became fixated on the idea.
Will Lily relocate to her estranged father’s home outside of the Square?
