EastEnders runaway Sean Slater (played by Rob Kazinsky) returned to the Square after finding out about his mother, Jean Slater’s (Gillian Wright) cancer diagnosis.
The Slater family were reunited earlier this week when Sean turned up and surprised Jean by taking her to her doctor’s appointment.
Stacey Fowler (Lacey Turner) was less happy to see her brother as she confessed to him that she was worried his arrival could have a negative impact on their mother’s health.
When Stacey told him this, Sean almost left the Square again but he changed his mind and decided to go on a break with Jean so they could spend some time together.
However, tragedy struck during their time at the remote countryside barn as Jean cut herself badly during a walk together.
Realising that he might not have as much time with his mum as he thought, Sean decided to make a shocking revelation as Jean slipped in and out of consciousness.
He confessed to causing his father’s brain haemorrhage by punching him and explained that he has blamed himself for his death ever since.
Viewers watched as Sean contemplated killing himself as he hid out in the barn with a rifle listening to a voicemail from dead wife Roxy Mitchell.
Luckily, Jean and Stacey were able to convince Sean that he had a lot to live for and eventually he handed Jean the gun.
