EastEnders spoilers follow.
EastEnders' Stacey Slater finally learns the truth about Theo Hawthorne next week when the villain confronts her during Lily's labour.
Stacey is unaware that Theo is also the same obsessive client who has been harassing her recently. Theo has also managed to infiltrate Stacey's private life by tutoring Lily.
The situation escalated last week when Stacey told Theo that Lily no longer needed a tutor as she was approaching her due date.
Stacey was later horrified to discover her bedroom trashed and realised that her stalker had got inside her house. Rattled by the event, Stacey was grateful for Theo's support and reconsidered her decision to let him go.
In upcoming scenes, manipulative Theo is convinced that he has Stacey fooled and plots to take their relationship to the next level when the pair meet to celebrate his new job.
Meanwhile, Eve Unwin and Martin Fowler uncover some shocking information about Theo and quickly realise he's behind the threatening messages that Stacey has been receiving.
Martin texts Stacey with the news but she's too distracted by tending to Lily, who is feeling poorly.
With Stacey preoccupied, Theo intercepts the messages and is furious to realise that it's game over for his plans. With nothing to lose, he hides Stacey's phone and then admits the truth about his identity.
Terrified, Stacey manages to force Theo out of Number 31, but the situation takes another turn when Lily's waters break.
Thankfully, Jean arrives and is on hand to help when she sees that Lily in labour. However, with the ambulance delayed, Jean and Stacey realise they may have to deliver Lily's baby themselves.
Refusing to let his obsession slide, Theo forces his way back inside and traps Stacey in the kitchen when she tries to get towels for Lily.
Jean tries to support Lily through labour, unaware that Stacey is in danger just metres away. Will she be able to escape Theo's clutches?
