Fridays Eastenders was amazing, tonights was pretty good too. Tanya and Sean need to go to grave-digging school because they did bury Max in the shallowest grave EVER. And why did they buy a coffin? Who sells coffins to people without a body? They should have just bundled him in the ground. I felt quite strongly that Max did deserve murdering on Friday. It was a bit sick to do it in the way he was most afraid of. They should have just brained him first.
It was completely out of character for Tanya to turn into a cold-blooded killer, but hey. It was all good silly fun. I enjoyed Max's calls from the grave. Fair enough he lost his signal pretty quick but he could have whiled away the time playing Tetris on his phone or reading Stacey's old text messages until the battery ran out.
I was pleased Tanya went back in a way, I don't think she could have coped with the guilt. I thought she wouldn't be able to find him at first. I thought Max was going to kill her and put her in the grave for a bit. I hoped she might change her mind and shove him back in. I think he might have wanted to go back in once she started giving him a spiel about how he'd wronged her. But at least they were having an honest coversation at last!
I cried with laughter when Max started crying and saying he was sorry after Tanya had tried to kill him. I thought they were going to get back together for a bit! After all, they are kind of even now, and Tanya has shown she won't take no more shit.
So what next for Sean? I think he might top himself. I felt a bit sorry for him. He helped her murder her husband, then she just told him to fuck off. Harsh!
It was a miracle in the end because I actually felt sorry for Max, something I never thought possible. It took him half dying though. I'm amazed he didn't want to get revenge on Sean thoough, but maybe he'll come back for a bit.
All in all, Eastenders is back on form, but I was a bit disappointed Max got out so soon though. They normally drag these things out forever and I was hoping to see him turn up later in the week covered in mud, dressed in a yellow jumpsuit weilding a Samuri sword.
Maybe next time?
