    I announce... the next storyline- all the soap magazines mentioned it last week (see link below inserted in hyperlink) but oh God, it gets worse than just Poxy!

    speculation
    I started laughing hysterically when I read Glenda. What next? First Roxy was going to offer and now Christian and Syed are going to ask Glenda?
    I never EVER thought I'd say this but bring Amira and her baby back! I'm very bemused. The only reason I still watch EE is because I got myself emotionally invested in Stacey (gone) and Christian and Syed. So this damn well had better be a better storyline than it seems...

    I don't know what to think. Surrogacy is a very interesting and topical idea for a storyline, it will be groudbreaking because I don't think any soap has explored surrogacy with gay parents but my issue is GLENDA (:lolwut:) and the fact that there are *far* more interesting things for the writer to explore with Christian and Syed. But hey, if TPTB want a surrogacy storyline, I shall have to live with it. It has the potential to be quite good especially when Zainab finds out! But why Glenda? Surely there are other women on the square who are able to have a baby (:rolleyes:) I'll assume they're not going to use Glenda's egg. I don't think it will really come to fruition anyway, I have a feeling it will fall through and Syed will find out about Amiraspawn.


    Oh and before Converse starts being rude... I have the soap scans here.

    That's boring as hell! Producers don't have a clue!

    I also saw a funeral picture? Do you think you can sit through endless episodes of mourning and going to funerals etc., I can't :o:. This storyline is just awkward as hell and will probably consume everything for the next few months or so

    James'. It was just Alfie and Kat crying but the idea that I'll have to sit through weeks of mourning, with loads and loads of hints by Ronnie in the first few weeks, and then near misses before someone knocks on the door / phone rings just as Ronnie is going to drop the bomb, just doesn't appeal to me. Can't be arsed with all the faffing around tbh.

    Each episode will be full of hints with Ronnie looking shiftier and shiftier, Jack asking questions, then maybe Roxy will figure it out after a month or so, Kat might accuse Ronnie but be labelled too depressed to be rational and Alfie will have to apologise for her accusations, there will be lots of near misses of Ronnie telling people etc. It will be a chore to sit through, especially because of the retarded Carol / Connor storyline :o:

    Feel the exact same way. It's just annoying. Even last night, like with Carol being distracted by Connor, or Christian ending up taking Roxy away just when Ronnie is about to say it :mad:

    Plus the Carol-Connor stuff is just too weird to watch

    smh, it's a mess imo. They could have done so much more with some of the storylines and some of the storylines there at the mo are a bit ridiculous. I don't understand what's going on in EE atm :erm: It's like there's meant to be one big storyline, i.e the babyswap atm but then they're focusing on the Conor/Carol so much even though imo it doesn't seem to be one of the 'big' storylines, or at least isn't capable of being but it's just all so muddled that what i'm writing doesn't even make sense :sigh: lol

    But I suppose the storyline could have potential in terms of Ronnie starting to hate her because she's able to

    Or maybe something will just go horribly wrong.

    I'd still rather see Roxy and Christian have a heterosexual affair :rofl:


    Although just read on DigitalSpy (someone who has read a different source has said):
    Spoiler:
    Show
    Roxy who agrees to become a surrogate for them. However, it is unclear if she is doing it to help them out or because it will mean she has a hold over Christian


    ^ that would probably sound more interesting tbh. And seems a bit fitting with Roxy's claim yesterday about how the label on her heart says 'why did you have to be gay' or something lol

    This! Actually @DaranLittle (a writer on EE) tweeted 'You chreyd fans are funny... You don't seem to like any story involving them... do you just want them to take their tops off?'
    He actually has a point to be honest. BUT... I'd be happier if they actually got storylines that didn't revolve around boring babies!

    This! It's not just Kirkwood though, I think it also has something to do with Dominic Treadwell Collins leaving. All the storylines have gone to **** and Kirkwood needs to sort it out because no-one seems to be happy with EE, at least not on here, Walford Web or Digital Spy anyway.

    Carol and Connor stuff freaks me out. It's just WRONG. He was her son's childhood friend, she watched him grow up, she acts in the exact same way to him she did with Billie except she sleeps with him?? Freud would have a field day, that's all I'm saying.

    I hate Glenda. I don't want it to be Glenda's storyline. Christian and Syed haven't had an actual storyline as a couple (or proper screentime actually) so I want it to be their chance to shine haha! I actually think- don't laugh- Heather would be the perfect surrogate. She's so kind and caring and she wouldn't use the baby as a tool to further her hidden agenda because she doesn't have one!

    I'm taking the Mirror article with a pinch of salt, mostly because it's the Mirror! I'd actually rather it be Roxy if we have to choose because I can see her getting really possessive over Christian and I want to see Christian realise that she's frankly, a pretty **** friend and I want Syed to be assertive and tell her to go away haha!
    I'm really not a fan of Roxy! Or any of the Mitchells really...

    Four words. Mutton dressed as lamb. I know she feels young but should she really be having a baby at her age? I really hope that's not true :rofl:

    I mean with the

    Gay surrogacy storyline


    I think it would add to it. If they really wanna blow it up :teeth:

    Spoiler:

    It'd be more effective if it's Syed that is used as a sperm donor because then another kid of his would come into the picture! But it'd still be effective if it was Christian's because maybe him and Christian will have to deal with looking after their own little baby but at the same time he knows that there's another little baby across the square that he actually produced.. if that makes sense? And through that they could explore Christian and Syed's relationship a bit more :dontknow: And would involve the Masoods more :dontknow: Maybe Amirah would come back as a proper ***** :headfire:

    Ah I see.. indeed it would add a whole new, interesting element to the situation. Though it still seems difficult to place her somewhere on the square. Her only / best friend was Christian and well I can't see them hanging out now ... the Massoods probably won't want too much to do with her as from what we've seen they haven't made any attempts to see the kid and as it's Syeds who they've disowned they probably refuse to see the child as their own either.

    Spoiler:
    Show
    I can't wait to see the Massoods reaction to it all though... well actually, the whole sqaures reaction. Not something any of them would have seen before and it may bring out sides of peoples personalities we haven't seen before.

    Yeahh hopefully they'll do a good job of it I'm losing faith in EE at the moment :o:

    What ever happened to the whole Tamwar and Afia?! It just seems to have been suddenly ignored! Also I thought they would make something more out of the Zainub and Afia's dad thing :erm: What's the point of bringing him in unless he's gonna have some relevance? Confused.

    Spoiler:
    Show
    I did hear that apprently Zainub might start an affair with him to pay off some sort of debts but I'm not sure about the validity of this, and it doesn't appear to be any time soon when the family is just being ignored!
