Mick will be forced to make a big decision next week as tensions begin to rise again in the Carter clan. Aunt Babe is trying to get her claws into the Vic this time by offering to buy Shirley's share of the pub.
When Shirley refuses, it gets Babe's back up and she puts yet another plan into motion. As a result, Linda realises they have no option but to accept her help.
Buster also learns the truth about who was responsible for throwing a brick through the window of Blades. All hell breaks loose!
While Mick is contemplating accepting Babe's help in the form of a lump sum of cash, Lee and Whitney come clean about the stash found in Stan's chair. Mick makes a big decision regarding the money.
As always, Tina is being torn between both sides of the Carter family and takes Shirley to the Vic for a drink to try and reconcile the warring mother and son.
However, they don't get the reaction they were expecting when Mick reveals that he wants to buy Shirley out of the pub and hands over an initial cash down payment.
Shirley decides to give Mick a final chance to let her back into his life but when he refuses, she ups the price for Mick to buy her out of The Vic. Is there any way back for them now?
EastEnders airs these scenes next week on BBC One.
