Heather Peace fans, hold onto your hats. Things got heated between #Sukeve in Eastenders on Wednesday night (12 October).
Fans have been glued to the on/off romance between Eve (Heather Peace) and Suki (Balvinder Sopal) for some time now. The pair had been keeping their relationship on the down low until Suki’s son Kheerat walked in on them in bed together.
Cue dramatic Eastenders “doof, doof, doof, doof” music.
Things just got a whole lot more complicated for our favourite Albert square duo. On the plus side maybe we’ll get to see a lot more of them as a couple now the sapphic cat is out of the sapphic bag.
If you didn’t see the show you may be asking how this happened.
You know how it is. One minute you’re at a family gathering having a row with your son, the next you’re in bed with Heather Peace. At least that’s what happened to Suki.
Due to fly to Mumbai for business, Suki had been upset by her family’s lack of feeling over her departure. Enter knight in shining armour Eve, pulling the ultimate would-be girlfriend move and arranging a family farewell meal.
However, things went pear-shaped when Suki stormed off following an argument with Kheerat. Who followed Suki home? You’ve guessed it, Eve, who proceeded to comfort her. Never a good idea.
Before they knew it Suki’s saying she doesn’t think she can keep their relationship secret anymore, there’s a passionate kiss and… we all know what happened after that.
Joking aside, there was an incredibly real and tender moment where Suki broke down in tears after they’d slept together. “Hey, what’s this?” asked Eve, trying to comfort her.
“I don’t know”, replied Suki, “I’m happy”.
Unfortunately, the moment was ruined by Kheerat walking in. Why do people in soaps just walk in after they’ve knocked without waiting for a response, goddammit?
Whatever happens we’re excited to see where #Sukeve’s storyline goes and whether this bombshell will allow them to be more open.
