EastEnders fans have poured out their support for fan-favourite Jean Slater after Ruby Allen revealed the truth behind her suspicious fall.
BBC viewers were sat on the edge of their seats on Thursday as they watched Ruby shower Jean with money in an effort to make up for what she did to her daughter Stacey.
But Jean soon returned the money to its rightful owner after she branded the guilty plea as “blood money”, blissfully unaware Ruby was the culprit behind her daughter’s imprisonment.
A tearful Ruby begged Jean to accept her money as she admitted she was too much like her father and didn’t know any other way to fix her problems than with money.
But the nightclub owner wasn’t just in mental pain as she admitted to the doting mum that she was in agony after she noticed a problem with her pregnancy.
Ever the supportive friend, Jean forced Ruby to go to hospital to get checked out and tried to keep her calm while they waited in the doctor's office.
Still insistent on making amends with Jean, the mum-of-two only agreed to accept a small donation of the funds to pay for her train ticket to visit her son Sean.
As the pair waited to hear the results of her recent test, Ruby was certain the news would be bad as karma for all the bad things she did to Stacey and Jean.
Full of guilt, Ruby admitted: “My dad some awful things and they caught up to him. He lost his wife, his favourite daughter and he died in prison all alone.
“I’m not gonna get to be a mum, I don’t deserve it. It's karma for what I did,” she sobbed.
But it was when Jean pushed her on her pessimistic outlook which prompted the expectant mother to make the huge confession.
“I didn’t try and get the charges dropped Jean,” she said after a deep breath. “Stacey didn’t push me.”
And fans soon flooded Twitter with sympathetic messages of support to Jean as the show ended on the anxious cliff hanger.
One user wrote: “Jean and Karen are too good for this world,” while another added “Jean is such a kind person to Ruby.”
A third penned: “Shirley is right that is blood money Ruby had given jean not pity money.”
Elsewhere, one viewer chimed in with: “Jean is a pushover poor thing,” whereas some users were encouraging the mum to hurt Ruby, as one fan penned: “Go on Jean do her in.”
