EastEnders has aired more horrific prison scenes for Whitney Dean, as she has now injured herself inside her prison.
The popular character has been behind bars since confessing to killing her sadistic stalker Leo King on the docks of the Thames boat crash— with police now investigating murder charges against her.
Her lawyer Gray Atkins (Toby-Alexander Smith), felt pressure on all sides in Friday's double bill (March 6), while his wife Chantelle (Jessica Plummer) started to worry about his explosive and abusive temper.
"This is insane. Ask your friends for help," she pleaded. "I'm scared of you, and you don't look good!"
Kush Kazemi (Davood Ghadami) agreed to plead guilty in his hearing for assault in the hope of getting Whitney (Shona McGarty) off easier after Gray attempted to sway him. "For you, this is good news," Gray told Whit on the phone.
As Gray told her the news, Whitney had a glimmer of hope, but as the hearing began, there was also an immediate concern.
During Whitney's trial, the Crown Prosecutor tried to out-maneuver the frazzled Gray by pointing out the inconsistencies of Whitney's self-defense plea— after Leo's death, she had not called the police and later went to the boat party.
The judge sided against Gray by denying the Barrister's offer to bail her.
As his colleague showed up to reveal that he would be fired and investigated at work, Gray faced his troubles at home.
Whitney faced a tragedy of her own at the same time in her jail cell. She went into a blind rage after being denied access to her solicitor and proceeded to punch the door violently. The episode of Friday closed with Whitney breaking down into tears as she was gasping in pain at the bruising she had inflicted on her hands.
