Whitney Dean (Shona McGarty) has been refusing to eat in EastEnders in an effort to not only make people listen to her, but also to ensure that she doesn’t allow her abuser Tony King (Chris Coghill) — and, by association, his evil son Leo (Tom Wells) — win, but after a series of hallucinations — due to lack of food — she collapsed in her cell as tonight’s second instalment came to an end.
The first of tonight’s two visits to Walford found Whitney refusing to eat once more — in spite of the well-meaning prison guard’s best efforts to convince her otherwise.
The man informed her of a previous inmate who’d attempted something similar — which, in the end, had no affect on her case, as she ended up in hospital after a series of hallucinations, and thus had to eat.
Whitney claimed that the woman in question was weak, before disposing of the food before her.
However, the second instalment found the young woman in a much worse state, as she hummed along to the lyrics of Atomic Kitten’s ‘Whole Again’, and before long — much like the guard had warned her — she started having hallucinations.
She saw a younger version of herself, and attempted to warn her about Tony, but as she did so, she could hear her abuser’s voice in her head — prompting her to shout in an effort to get him to be quiet.
As the episode progressed, the hallucinations continued, and — as they did so — she became weaker and weaker.
With the younger iteration of herself now dressed in bunny rabbit pyjamas, Whitney attempted to warn her once more, but as she did so, she sang ‘Whole Again’, before ultimately collapsing to the floor.
Will Whitney be okay?
Will the guards get to her in time?
Or will it be too late?
EastEnders continues Monday 16 March at 8pm on BBC One.
