Sam Mitchell has arrived back in Walford to help Phil Mitchell with his grand plan in EastEnders.
The soap set the stage for the return of Kim Medcalf’s trouble-making character last week when Phil agreed to DCI Keeble’s offer to become a confidential informant so long as he could make an international call.
Monday’s episode confirmed that Phil wasn’t actually on the level with his offer after his lawyer Ritchie Scott surreptitiously delivered the news about the plea deal to his ex-wife and business partner Sharon Watts.

However, when the time came for Phil to actually start giving up information on underworld figures like Aidan Maguire and corrupt coppers, he started stalling.
Ritchie was furious to realize that Phil had been playing all of them simply so he could make this international phone call. The lawyer delivered the news to Ben, who is facing his own trouble with the law for a series of attacks on homophobes in Walford.
“[Phil] was just stringing them along for a hot breakfast and a phone call,” Ritchie grumbled to Ben.
As Ben questioned who Phil had called, viewers saw Phil being visited in prison at that very moment by his sister Sam. Heads turned in the prison visiting room as Sam made her entrance with a big smile.
“Mum would have drug you back in the house for wearing that,” Phil quipped about her outfit.
Sam retorted back: “Never mind you’re the one being done for double murder, I’d still be the one in trouble, wouldn’t I?”
The two shared a laugh as Sam told Phil it’s “good to be back” over the duff-duff. But, why exactly has Sam returned to Walford?
EastEnders airs on Mondays, Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays at 7.30pm on BBC One and streams on BBC iPlayer.
