Bobby Beale (Clay Milner Russell) reached crisis point in EastEnders tonight as the voices and visions in his mind of his dead sister Lucy led him to walk up the train tracks. Bobby has been plagued by Lucy since returning from prison to his Walford home and Ian (Adam Woodyatt) and Kathy (Gillian Taylforth) have struggled to get through to him.
As the intensity of his visions continued to mount, Bobby fled his home once more and as Lucy beckoned him onto the train tracks, he begged for her to leave him alone and repeated how sorry he was. Callum Highway (Tony Clay) spotted him on the tracks and gave chase, trying to get through to him.
Bobby was barely aware of Lucy as he spoke with the silhouette of Lucy before him but as a train approached, Callum pulled him close out of harms way and saved his life. As things calmed down slightly, Bobby opened up to Callum about constantly seeing Lucy and Callum could empathise as he told him about his PTSD from the army.
As Bobby was taken to hospital, Ian and Kathy were at a loss over where to go from here and Bobby explained that he still had so much to work through. As he told his family that he is not a bad person, he admitted that he still feels that he hasnt got his head around the lies he had been told that Lucy had simply left the house on the night of her death.
