EastEnders Dana attacked in racist scuffle as helpless Bobby watches
EastEnders fans are in for more of a rollercoaster with Bobby Beale (Clay Milner Russell) and Dana Monroe (Barbara Smith), as their relationship continues on a difficult foot.
Her dad Harvey (Ross Boatman) already isn't keen on the relationship, and next week things start out on a sour note when he urges her to reconsider the romance.
But EastEnders spoilers reveal that Dana has no intention of doing so and is keen to stand by Bobby regardless.
She heads out with Bobby, Iqra Ahmed (Priya Davdra), Kioni Marwa (Florisa Kamara) and new character Waseem Qureshi (Faraz M Khan) to hand out flyers to support the new mosque.
Trouble is afoot though, as Dana soon notices a group of men coming up to them, who start firing off racial slurs.
Harvey eventually comes along to show some support, but everyone is soon left in shock when he makes an offensive joke.
Keen to impress and win Harvey over, Bobby heads to the cab office and makes it clear how much he loves Dana and promises that he will always protect her.
And in classic soap drama, it soon becomes clear that he was speaking too soon.
Not long later, the group see the racist guys from earlier and are left concerned.
Things soon get out of hand and Dana is physically assaulted, but all a helpless Bobby can do is watch on.
Later, at the police station, Iqra is distraught and apologises for running away during the assault.
But Bobby is wrapped up in his own guilt for not protecting poor Dana.
How will Harvey deal with his daughter's attack? And what does this mean for Bobby and Dana going forward?
Bobby certainly hasn't had it easy since he returned to Albert Square and converted to Islam.
He had to deal with Islamophobic abuse in the past and was previously attacked on the way to the mosque which ended up with him going to hospital, even needing surgery for a bleed on the brain.
Will he be able to turn things around with the help of Dana?
EastEnders continues Mondays, Tuesdays, Thursdays and Fridays on BBC One
