We’re gearing up for some dramatic developments in Albert Square after the return of Bobby Beale to Walford.
The character returned on Thursday – having been recast once again, with Clay Milner Russell taking over the role – and awkwardness immediately ensued as we learned he had been sleeping in Lucy’s old bedroom.
All of which brought up talk of a lot of past events in the lives of the Beales – from Lucy’s death at Bobby’s hands to the death of Lucy’s half-brother, Steven – who also met an untimely end in the wake of his half-sister’s death.
What exactly did happen to Steven though? Let’s give ourselves a quick reminder…
Who was Steven Beale in EastEnders and who played him?
Steven Beale was the son of Cindy Beale and Simon Wicks – whom she had been having an affair with while she was still married to Ian (Adam Woodyatt).
Cindy attempted to convince Ian he was his son, although he eventually learned the truth – eventually raising Steven as his son when the pair of them reconciled – although Steven later learned the truth and moved to New Zealand to be with his real dad.
He eventually returned in 2007 and again in 2016, in the wake of Jane Beale (Laurie Brett) being hospitalised by Bobby’s hockey stick assault, and Bobby’s subsequent confession that he killed Lucy.
How did Steven Beale die?
When he returned for the final time he was now in a relationship with Lauren Branning (Jacqueline Jossa) but soon embarks on an affair with Abi (Lorna Fitzgerald) – and ended up faking a brain tumour to convince Lauren to stay with him.
However Max found out about the lie and manipulated Steven into torching Beales restaurant to try and kill Jane – but he ended up trying to save her, with Max violently pushing him into a countertop as he attempted to do so.
As a result of this, Steven suffered abdominal injuries and later died in hospital, shortly after finding out that Abi was pregnant with his baby.
