EastEnders' Roxy Mitchell has not been acting herself during the past few weeks, and the bubbly girl we're used to has disappeared. Is the trauma caused by Dean Wicks still affecting her so deeply?

She’s been very mysterious about what she’s been up to during the last four months that she’s been absent from the Square… 

After Roxy leaves The Vic, Linda Carter follows her and tries to get her to open up about Dean, knowing how much talking can help. But will Roxy listen?

Ronnie Mitchell seems to have her work cut out at the moment reasoning with people, talking and listening to them. Is she the Square's new agony aunt?! This time Andy Flynn gets the Ronnie treatment… But why is the builder storming off? He doesn’t seem in the best of moods.

Ronnie finally gets Andy to stop, although he does so reluctantly. The pair have had quite a good rapport so far, but it doesn’t look like he’s convinced by what she’s saying. Maybe she’s trying to find out more about him! We don’t know a lot amount about Andy – he seems to be a cheerful, straight-up guy, but is he really as he seems? Ronnie may do well to put some distance between herself and him...

Meanwhile, Roxy returns to Ronnie’s and the sisters sit down and have a serious chat. Is Roxy finally opening up to Ronnie about where's she’s been and what she’s been up to, or is she still withholding the truth?
