Jean learns her fate as she gets her cancer results in EastEnders
EastEnders fans have watched brave Jean Slater (Gillian Wright) fight her cancer with bravery and strength and in coming episodes, she will face her fears as she gets an oncology appointment and gets set to discover whether the cancer is still in her body or if she is given the all clear.
Recently, she has been focused on Daniel Cook (Ade Edmondson), who recently returned to her life after faking his death to try and protect her feelings. The pair have laughed together and his presence has brought Jean joy – but they know their time together is cruelly finite.
Daniel has been given just weeks to live and despite putting plans in place for his funeral, Daniel seems pretty blasé about his situation, something that Jean struggles with. But as she nags him to take it seriously, she learns that he is just putting up a front and may not be as okay with his fate as he is making out.
When Jean learns that the care unit Daniel is staying in is closing down, she immediately insists he moves in to stay with her and she is touched. When she sees that he is down, she gets Mo Harris (Laila Morse) and Kush Kazemi (Davood Ghadami) on board and prepares a surprise for him.
With her oncology appointment imminent, Jean takes her own mind off of things with her gesture for Daniel and, touched, he tells her he won’t be going anywhere until he knows that she will be okay.
On the day of the appointment, Jean refuses to go, afraid of what she might find out but Daniel forces her and she is overwhelmed to get the all clear from her MRI scan. Knowing that Daniel’s promise might mean he could let go now he knows she will be fine, Jean tries to hide her good news from him but Mo soon informs him.
Daniel is delighted and he and Jean sit together happily on the bench. With Jean’s future stretching out in front of her, it’s a different story for Daniel – but he knows that he can go knowing that the woman he loves is going to make it.
As Jean returns from getting Daniel a drink, she gets a shock – but how will she cope with it?
