Sad day in EastEnders tonight. Mick, Shirley and Tina finally manage to put their differences to one side so they can put on a united front in support of Stan. Even Mick and Shirley have a heart to heart and admit they miss each other. Soon though, it's just Shirley left with her dad, and after some final words from Stan, he peacefully slips away. Meanwhile, the Brannings are also suffering as they struggle following the news of Jim's death. Carol is unhappy when Max prioritises his car sales over Jim, but she is also finding it difficult to grieve herself since she and Jim were at odds for most of her life. While it's left to Sonia to break the news to Dot in prison.... so hard times all round tonight on the Square.
