Viewers of EastEnders can expect to see Jay Brown use alcohol to cope with his grief as Lola Pearce preparations get under way.
The loss of his wife appears to be too much for Jay Brown (Jamie Borthwick) in scenes that will air on EastEnders the following week, as he turns to alcohol.
According to confirmed spoilers, after heading to The Vic to try to drown his sorrows, Gina (Francesca Henry) and Linda (Kellie Bright) quickly become concerned for Jay.
They decide that it would be best if Jay went home and tried to sober up.
The end of Lola Pearce’s (Danielle Harold) battle with cancer left EastEnders viewers in tears at the end of May.
The residents of Walford have all been attempting to deal with their grief as she passed away in bed with her husband and daughter Lexi (Isabella Brown).
But Billy Mitchell (Perry Fenwick), who is trying to occupy himself with plans for Lola’s funeral, is also having a hard time dealing with Lola’s passing, so it’s not just Jay.
When Billy and the Reverend have a tense conversation, he starts to feel angry because of how the Mitchell family has treated his granddaughter over the years.
He storms out of the house after yelling at Honey (Emma Barton) and Jay while sharing his thoughts.
Later, Billy is outside the funeral home, distraught and grieving, when Honey finds him.
Once Billy has found some solace, Honey urges him to say one last goodbye to Lola before she is laid to rest.
On the day of the funeral, however, it seems Billy is unable to bid his loved one adieu because he is not to be found.
It is clear how adored Lola was by the neighborhood as her hearse pulls up to the square decorated with flowers and painted with bright tributes from everyone.
Jay and Lexi make moving speeches in honor of Lola’s life as they bid her farewell for the last time.
Everyone returns to the square for a celebration of Lola’s life as she would have wanted after the funeral is over.
After the difficult day is over, Jay is worn out as he returns home for one last live stream.
As her journey has now come to an end, he decides to thank every one of her channel subscribers for their support.
