KATHY Beale has left the Square to enjoy her honeymoon with Rocky Cotton, leaving her grandson Bobby out of a major decision.
The lad makes a shocking discovery next week in EastEnders and eventually turns to his half-brother Peter.
Thomas Law reprised his role in the BBC One soap after it was revealed that Cindy Beale was alive and well, despite the claims she'd died while giving birth behind bars in the late 1990s.
Cindy was thrown into the witness protection scheme when her former inmate made threats to her life and met George Knight under the alias Rose Knight.
During their time together, the pair welcomed two daughters, Anna and Gina.
But she eventually walked out on them before settling in Jouars, France, and reconnecting with her former husband Ian Beale.

Their son Peter Beale eventually came to join them but when his half-brother Bobby Beale (Clay Milner Russell) finds out that Kathy is selling the chippy, he gets an alarming call.
Regular viewers of the London-based program will remember that Kathy agreed to sell the chippy after Rocky's estranged wife Jo blackmailed him into giving her a whopping amount of money.
At the time, Jo was planning to expose Rocky for bigamy as their divorce hadn't been made official when he decided to tie the knot with Kathy.
Beale's Plaice has been a huge part of life in Albert Square since 1994, after Ian Beale bought the premises which were previously those of a Chinese takeaway, The Green Lantern.

While Ian has often lost the business, he'd always managed to earn it back – but could Kathy's decision lead to the family losing the shop entirely?
This remains to be seen but one thing is certain – Peter Beale's return to Walford will be a trigger for chaos.
Peter has no idea that Anna Knight (Molly Rainford) has also been looking to get in touch with their mother Cindy aka Rose.
After radio silence, Anna sends a scathing text to her mum and heads to No.45 for a heart-to-heart with Bobby as the pair put their awkwardness from last week behind them.

In France, Peter intercepts the text from Anna on Cindy’s phone and after interrogating Ian (Adam Woodyatt), learns he has two sisters.
Ian quickly deletes the messages from Anna and pleads with him not to tell Cindy which he agrees to, but Peter shocks Ian when he later shares his plans to leave for Walford to meet his two sisters declaring he’s booked on the Eurostar that night.
Later on, Peter arrives at The Vic as an unsuspecting Gina and Anna prepare to close up for the night – what will he tell them?
EastEnders airs from Monday to Thursday at 7.30pm on BBC One.
