Katy in EastEnders flees Walford to escape justice?

For months we watched Katy Lewis (Simone Lahbib) in EastEnders worm her way back into Mick Carter’s (Danny Dyer) life follow his discovery that Katy’s daughter Frankie (Rose Ayling-Ellis) is his daughter.

Katy manipulated Mick from the moment she saw him, getting into his head and twisting his truth, confusing Mick on whether he was abused by her when he was in care, or whether what Katy was saying was true, and it was just a silly fantasy.

It was during the New Year’s Eve episode that focused solely on Mick’s struggles that he concluded he had been abused, and Katy had been trying to cover her tracks ever since. The episode showed the power of reaching out to a stranger as Mick spoke to a Samaritans volunteer, and was able to help him get to the bottom of why his overwhelming feelings had started.

Mick bravely told Linda (Kellie Bright) the truth about Frankie and Katy, and since then Mick has been trying to move forward in his life, but with Katy still around, it’s understandably proving difficult.

Linda has already pleaded with Mick to go to the police, but with Katy getting into his head, telling him that he wouldn’t be believed if he told the police, it’s left Mick wanting to forget about everything, rather than dealing with his trauma.

The big question is: will Katy get what she deserves? Frankie, Linda, and now Shirley (Linda Henry) all know about Mick’s abuse, so will they all be able to help Mick realise telling the police about Katy and what he’s been through is the right thing to do?

Despite Mick now realising the truth, Katy is still continuing to try and gain the upper hand. Katy is convinced there was nothing wrong with what she did to Mick, we know this from when she told him how most men would be proud they lost their virginity to an older woman, which means Mick telling the police what happened to him will be an incredibly difficult and traumatic time. He’s aware of how Katy’s mind works, so it is highly likely if he tells someone, she will manipulate whoever she needs to so she’s in power once more.

If Mick doesn’t tell the police, Shirley now knows what happened to him, and after that punch up in the Square in yesterday’s episode, Katy could run away from Walford, at fear of what Shirley will do to her, but she will also be escaping justice at the same time. Katy is a coward, she manipulates and controls someone when she’s terrified of losing control, but if the wrath of Shirley, Frankie, Mick and Linda is too powerful, running away could be a possibility.

It is only a matter of time until we see the end of Katy, but while her exit could involving fleeing, Simone Lahbib revealed how much she wants Mick to report Katy to the police so Mick can get justice:

‘I really want it to happen! I really want to see Katy Lewis get her just desserts and justice to be served. I hope it goes beyond Shirley beating her up and that she goes to prison but who knows!’

With this storyline set to continue in tonight’s episode, scenes over the next few weeks will play a huge role in how just Katy’s time in Albert Square comes to an end.
