Eastenders Ronnie in prison after giving Tommy back to Kat and Jack Branning goes of the rails
A storyline that has seemingly gone on forever for Eastenders fans, Kat and Alfie Moon are finally reunited with their Baby son Tommy in a emotional episode which will be aired next week. Baby Tommy is taken to the local hospital for a check up and the social worker needs to complete some paper work. Meanwhile Ronnie is at the police station being interviewed by the forensic medical examiner, Ronnie is clearly all over the place after months of living a lie and makes a tearful apology for what she has done. Roxy and Michael are both at the police station too and are equally as shocked by Ronnie's recent revelations, but as they both leave the Police station Michael tries to make a joke about the situation which worries Roxy even more.
Meanwhile a devastated Jack Branning is still at the hospital where he has been told to say goodbye to the baby he believed to be his son, Jack looks down at Baby Tommy in his cot and says an emotional goodbye. Jack is heartbroken and really struggles to leave the baby he loves so much, but after forcing himself to walk away, he leaves the hospital just as Roxy arrives. Jack gets in a cab and returns back home, and without his wife and son he is feeling totally alone.
Meanwhile Kat and Alfie are at the hospital waiting for their sons check up to be completed, and although they are overjoyed by the news they are both struggling with the reality of the situation. Kat and Alfie are told that they will need to speak to the social worker and answer some questions which is standard procedure, but Kat becomes overwhelmed and runs off. Alfie asks if he can deal with the formalities himself but the social worker tells him that Kat has to be there too if they want to take Baby Tommy home. While Alfie anxiously waits for Kat's return, Kat is back at the pub where Jean is organising a party for Tommy's return. Jean pulls out Tommy's little toy lion Clarence and speaks excitedly about Tommy's arrival, Kat becomes overwhelmed with emotion and she realises that her baby boy is alive and is really coming home, so she rushes back to the hospital to be reunited with her son.
Meanwhile at the hospital, the social worker feels she has waited long enough, Alfie begs her to give Kat a little longer but the social worker leaves anyway. Alfie phones Kat who says she is rushing to get to the hospital with all Tommy's baby things. Kat finally arrives just as the social worker is driving out of the hospital so Kat stands in front of the car blocking the social worker in, Kat refuses to move and so the social worker gives in and eventualy hands Tommy over to Kat.
Kat then goes off to find Alfie and the couple are over the moon to be reunited with their baby at long last. Kat and Alfie are still in shock but Alfie promises Kat that they will stick together throughout it all.
Back at the square Jack is struggling to cope with the loss of his son, and needs to get some answers from wife Ronnie so sets of to visit her in jail. When he gets to the prison it is all very awkward and they both end up sat in silence. Jack finally asks Ronnie why she did it but Ronnie wont answer his questions and instead tells Jack that he needs to find a woman that will treat him right. Jack begs Ronnie to talk to him but Ronnie just walks back to the guards and blows Jack a kiss as she leaves, Jack is devastated and very confused.
Over at the square everyone is talking about the recent turn of events and it is not long before the local press are sniffing around trying to get a good story, however Mo grinds up a load of laxatives and puts them in the reporters drinks, when Alfie spots Mo putting the crushed up tablets in the drinks and then handing them to the reporters outside the pub, he fears she has poisoned them and demands to know what Mo is playing at, but when the reporters start coming in desperate for the toilet it all becomes clear. There is also a surprise arrival for Kat when her Dad Charlie turns up at the pub with a cuddly toy for his grandson, Kat is overjoyed at her Dads arrival and they have an emotional reunion.
The press are still on the square digging for dirt, and while in the Cafe one reporter approaches vulnerable Whitney and manipulates her into talking to him. The reporter tells Whitney that poor Ronnie is being portrayed as a psychopath and that he wants to set the record straight of what the real Ronnie was like, prompting Whitney to tell all. Meanwhile a broken Jack ask Alfie if he can change Tommy's headstone for his own son James, Alfie agrees to talk to Kat and tells him to come back later when things have calmed down a bit. However when Jack comes back later as arranged he walks in on everyone toasting little Tommy and Kat and Alfie bonding with Tommy and it breaks his heart, Jack goes to leave but Alfie spots him and realises that he forgot to ask Kat about the headstone.
Tommy's biological father Michael seems to be keeping his distance and Roxy questions him about his attitude towards the news, Michael tells Roxy that he thinks it is time for him to leave and let Kat and Alfie get on and bring their son up. While everyone is happy for Kat and Alfie, poor Jack is plummeting further into depression and after a sparing session with Jay turns aggressive resulting in Jack punching Jay in the face, Michael steps in to talk to his friend. But Jack is soon arguing with Michael and after squaring up to him he storms off. Later Michael tells Alfie that he is worried about Jacks behaviour. Alfie then goes to see Jack and tells him of his own pain when grieving for Tommy, Jack then breaks down and finally grieves for his son.
