Mitch finds Karen looking upset and wants to know what’s up with her. Karen won’t open up but instead blames her continuing difficulties with Chantelle.

EastEnders Karen Taylor and Dinah

Dinah has fallen again

Just as things are going well with Chantelle, Karen gets a worrying text from Dinah. She rushes over to Dinah’s to discover that she has fallen again and needs help. Concerned about Dinah’s state of mind, when the nurse turns up Karen points out that Dinah is in a really low place.

The nurse suggests making an appointment for Dinah with a mental health nurse. After learning about another patient in a similar situation to Dinah, Karen gets an idea about how to help her out. What is she planning?

Mel is smarting over Jack’s refusal to look over an investment opportunity with her. Later, she finds Amy stealing from the shop. After following Amy, she discovers that Amy has taken some sanitary products. Her heart-strings are pulled and she offers Amy some female support. When Jack finds Mel helping out Amy, however, he’s angry. He tells Mel to stay well away from his daughter.
