Ever since Theo Hawthorne arrived in Walford on EastEnders, we knew something was awfully off about him. Although he was introduced on the BBC One soap as Freddie Slater’s former school teacher. Most viewers sniffed something fishy, leaning towards sinister territory, about him. Slowly, in time, it was revealed that Theo was in fact obsessed with Stacey and eventually started stalking her! Now, in a thrilling sequence, the secret is also out for Stacey! What will she do now? Moreover, what will Theo do? Keep reading to find out!
Stacey Learns The Startling Truth
Theo really thought his game through on EastEnders. He easily and effectively infiltrated Stacey’s life through her daughter Lily. When Theo first arrived, it felt like his interests lied in Lily. We wondered if he was a pedophile trying to groom Lily. But thankfully, that wasn’t the case. He was not sexually interested in Lily. Unfortunately, he still did have some rather sinister intentions. He used Lily to get into her home. He offered free tutoring to her in order to win a place in Stacey’s good books! And his tricks worked out just fine! Stacey did call him the best thing that has happened to her family in the longest time.
Sadly, she had no idea how horribly wrong she is about that. Honestly speaking, Stacey not seeing right through Theo on EastEnders feels rather odd. She has been on the canvas a long time and has always been shown to be a smart cookie. Thus, falling so blindly for Theo’s trickery is really out of character for her. In the September 4, 2023, episode, Martin texted her the truth about Theo and the man intercepted the texts. Fearing that Martin will expose him, Theo decided to come clean to Stacey.
What Will Be Stacey and Theo’s Fate on EastEnders?
As of now, Theo has shown no intention of physically harming Stacey on EastEnders. However, seeing how obsessive and sort of deranged he is, nothing can be put past him. So even if Stacey manages to get rid of him for the time being and throws him out of the house. It is unlikely that he will stop stalking her anytime soon. If anything, his obsessions with her will rise several notches higher! So we can expect to see Theo pull some more crazy and scary stunts in the upcoming epsides.
As for Stacey, she has proven time and again that she will do anything to protect her family on EastEnders. So even if she takes a lighter approach at first, chances are matters would escalate at a later point. Moreover, now that the secret is out, Theo’s name has bumped up several positions on the Christmas Murder’s possible victims list. Do you think Theo’s obsession will lead him to meet a grisly end at Stacey’s hands on the BBC One soap? Tell us in the comments.
