EastEnders fans will be left wondering whether Rainie Branning is getting a little too invested in her sham marriage to Max tonight (July 2).
Viewers know that Rainie (Tanya Franks) and Max (Jake Wood) have tied the knot as a secret business arrangement, but this evening’s episode sees telltale signs that Rainie wants it to be more.
Max has promised Rainie money if she helps him to gain custody of his baby granddaughter Abi, wanting to show that he can provide a stable home life for the little one.
In tonight’s episode, Rainie becomes obsessed with the idea that she and Max need to work much harder to prove that they’re a genuine couple.
Starting as she means to go on, Rainie arranges a family meal for her, Max, Jack and Mel – seeing the double date as the perfect chance to step up their charade.
With Rainie going to great effort to prove her point – and seemingly enjoying every minute – she ends up irritating Max as he reckons she’s going way over the top and needs to stop trying so hard.
Keen to give the bickering pair some space, Jack and Mel make their excuses and leave them alone.
Even though nobody is around to watch, Rainie ends up kissing a stunned Max in the heat of the moment. Does this mean she has genuine feelings for him? And will Max respond?
EastEnders airs tonight at the later time of 9.10pm on BBC One. See the soap’s full World Cup schedule changes here.
