SAM Mitchell has made her return to Albert Square but not everybody is happy to see her.
Next week in EastEnders, the character ruffles Kat Slater’s feathers a little too much and winds up on the streets.

While her brother Phil continues to spend time behind bars, Sam (played by returning actress Kim Medcalf) wreaks some havoc in the Square.
Sadly for her, Kat (Jessie Wallace) has had enough of her behaviour while she gets closer to Phil’s empire and makes a drastic move to make her frustrations clear.
In upcoming scenes of the BBC One soap, Denise Fox (Diane Parish) first overhears the owner of Kat’s Cabs speaking with Stacey about life in crime while in the café.
The Fox & Hair manager warns both Kat and Stacey that they will need to sort everything out with Sam so she can leave Jack Branning and their family alone.
Viewers know that Sam left her son Ricky behind in Walford and with his father Jack (Scott Maslen) in 2016 and the latter tied the knot with Denise during the festive period in December, 2021.
Later on, Sam arrives at Kat’s house but she’s has had enough.
Kat throws Sam out, announces she’s head of the family.
Phil’s partner has many other matters to worry about, soon after her troublesome son Tommy began acting out because of his school bullies.
Next week, Kat will also be shaken when a smoke bomb will be thrown into her house.
She suspects she knows who could be behind the horrifying attack but tries to remain calm.
Her fear only grows when she receives an odd package.
When Stacey confronts her about her life dealing with Phil’s crime empire, however, Kat admits she had never signed up for anything like it.
As viewers know, Phil was incarcerated after discovering Tina Carter’s body under the floorboards of the Argee Bhajee in February, 2022.
He had the option to roam free on the one condition he became a police informant – which he refused.
This has led to him being thrown behind bars for life.
But how will Kat cope outside of prison?
EastEnders airs from Monday to Thursday at 7.30pm on BBC One.
