Ben Mitchell (Max Bowden) begins to have doubts about reporting Lewis Butler (Aidan O’Callaghan) to the police in EastEnders and starts to contemplate violent revenge instead.
After learning her son was raped by Lewis, Kathy spends the start of the week fussing over Ben, who’s unsure whether he should actually tell the police he was raped.
Later on, during a conversation with Jay (Jamie Borthwick), Ben decides to tell him about his sexual assault.
As the chat continues, Jay inadvertently puts doubts in Ben’s mind about going to the police.
At the station, Ben changes his mind, worried the police won’t believe him.
That evening, Ben sends a message to Lewis asking to meet him.
The next day, Lewis is riled when Kathy fires him from his job after raping Ben.
Meanwhile, at The Arches, Ben waits for Lewis with a crowbar in hand but when he’s a no show, he storms over to The Albert and demands that Kathy tells him where Lewis lives.
Seeing red and believing Kathy is protecting Lewis, Ben struggles to keep his rage in check.
Can anyone calm Ben down?
Or will he end up finding Lewis and unleashing his anger?
