EastEnders’ Stacey Slater defended as fans point out huge flaw in Theo twist

EastEnders fans are blasting an unrealistic flaw in Stacey Slater’s stalker storyline.

For several weeks fans have seen creepy tutor Theo Hawthorne worm his way into Stacey’s life by tutoring her daughter Lily.

He has since gone on to stalk and harass her, both breaking into her house, sending her threatening text messages and manipulating her into ending her friendship with Eve.

But after Theo broke into her house on Thursday (Aug 24) and slashed her underwear – only to be conveniently waiting outside the house to lend a helping hand, fans are slamming Stacey’s naivety as “totally unrealistic.”

“@bbceastenders Why are they trying to portray Stacey as some thick idiot who wouldn't see through the psycho? Totally out of character. #Eastenders #poorstoryline,” said one fan.

“what the hell happened to Stacey Slater? From what I remember she was one of the most street smart people on the square so how the hell has she not figured out this Theo dude is creepy af?” penned another.

A third viewer wrote: "Them purposely writing Stacey as dim when she is the most street smart person on the square is really getting on my nerves.”
