Mel Owen’s shocking revenge plans will have devastating consequences, possibly even for her son Hunter.
The scorned woman has been planning an elaborate revenge on her partner, Ray Kelly, who she has discovered is actually married to multiple people and lives a life full of lies.
She almost bullied him into marrying her but, of course, she has some tricks up her sleeve and, if the new trailer is anything to go by, things are going to get very messy.
And she may even put her son Hunter in harm’s way.

The trailer starts off with Mel making a fake promise to her soon to be hubby, saying: "New Year, new us," as they prepare for their wedding.
But Shirley Carter clearly gives the game away when she tells a suspicious Ray: "I’ve been told to distract you."
We then see Mel talking to the two wives, telling them their plan is "blown" if he catches them, followed by a distraught and upset Hunter, demanding of his stepfather: "You said mum was the only one for you?|"

After this, the wedding party are seen looking battered as Mel admits his husband "tried to kill me," before she calls him a monster in an incredibly tense moment which ends with the sound of a gunshot and Mel screaming in the woods.
Ray is then seen trying to reason with Hunter, saying there are "two sides," as the young lad grabs what looks like a knife.
But the really frightening moment comes as the three of them are in a car in the dark in what looks like woodland, as Mel is seen pushed out of the car as they are all shouting and screaming, before we are taken back inside the family home.

Hunter is heard shouting: "No, no, Dad please!" from inside a locked room after Mel grabs her gun from the club, meaning there is clearly something awful set to occur.
Mel declares that there are "no more games" to happen between them, but what will Ray do, and who will live?
EastEnders continues on New Years Eve at 8pm on BBC1.
