Eastenders Billie Jackson Funeral & Carol's Suicide Plot!
It has only been a day since the Jackson family woke up to the nightmare of Billie's horrifying death caused by alcohol poisoning. Mum Carol has just retreated into herself and the only strength she can find is anger.
Bianca and the rest of the family just feel helpless, as Carol continues to spiral out of control. At first she tries to drink herself through the grief, but later directs all her anger towards her friends and family, who are all very worried about her.
When Carol visits her father Jim, she suddenly notices that he has no pictures of Billie on the mantelpiece. This angers Carol, and she accuses her father of being a racist, before banning both him and his shocked wife Dot from her son's funeral.
Things don't get any better for Carol back at Pats house, when Carol's grandson Liam accidentally spills tomato ketchup on one of Billie's hoodies.
Carol lashes out at Liam and cuts him with her ring as she strikes the blow which leaves the poor lad with a bloody forehead. When Carol realises that she is pushing her loved ones away, she organises a family meal, but all hell breaks loose when Bianca discovers her son Liam's injury, and after yet another heated row, Carol bans everyone from Billie's funeral the following day.
Billie Jackson's Funeral
On the day of Billies funeral, Carol is dreading having to say her final goodbye to her youngest son.
As the hearse arrives, Carol is left angry when Billie's gang arrives to say farewell to their friend, and Carol is seen telling them all to get lost.
Only Billie's Dad Alan and Gran Blossom attend the funeral with Carol as she has banned everyone else from attending, and Carol is left feeling embarrassed when she misreads the signals from her ex husband and leans in for a kiss only for him to turn her down.
Feeling rejected and alone, Carol returns from the funeral to find the house empty. Carol just wants to be with her son Billie and feels her only way out is to take her own life, so she gathers together some pills along with a bottle of vodka and sits down to write daughter Bianca a goodbye letter.
Carol places the letter on the side, and just as she is about to neck the pills, Billie's best mate Connor bangs on the door and starts shouting at Carol for banning him from the funeral and not letting him say goodbye to his best friend.
When Connor and Carol have both calmed down, we see them bond over their loss and in true soap style one thing leads to another and they end up in bed together. After the deed Connor makes a quick exit just as Bianca arrives home, but Carol has got in the shower totaly forgetting about the suicide note she has left on the side.
When Bianca finds the note, she is left both angry and devastated that her Mum would take her own life without a thought for the rest of them, and a confrontation between the two is set to follow.
Billie's funeral can be seen on Monday 25th October at 8pm. See video below.
