EastEnders: Lucas smashes a glass against the wall
Max Branning (played by Jake Wood) was heartbroken when Linda Carter (Kellie Bright) announced she would be standing by her husband Mick Carter (Danny Dyer) instead of heading on a trip around the world with him. However, when it becomes obvious Max is still determined to convince Linda to leave EastEnders with him, will Mick resort to drastic measures to save his family?
Speaking to Express.co.uk, EastEnders stalwart Jake revealed Max’s focussed entirely on winning back his brief lover.
In upcoming scenes, Max will continue to try and clear Tina Carter’s (Luisa Bradshaw-White) and resorts to blackmailing Phil Mitchell (Steve McFadden) when he gathers enough evidence.
When asked whether Max has any concern for his welfare over threatening the Mitchells, he said: “I don’t think so not at this point.
“I think he’s got his mindset in terms of what he wants to achieve he wants to get Linda back.”

“He thinks that blackmailing Phil will lead to a chain of events that will help him get Linda back,” Jake remarked.
“I think he’s lost the plot in some ways, he’s deluded in terms of what he wants and what he thinks he can get.
“Linda’s been very clear with him in terms of what she wants, she’s made it clear she doesn’t want to have a relationship with him anymore but I think Max is not taking no for an answer.”
Will Mick realise Max will never leave Linda alone unless he forces him out of the picture?
The former Queen Vic owner threatens to kill Max if he comes near his wife again but the lothario doesn’t listen.
“Max never has any much consideration for any of the partners of the women he’s with if they have got partners,” Jake explained.
“He doesn’t care less in fact he laughs at Mick when he gets hit.
“He’s never been too concerned about his physical well being he will take a punch when he sees it as being worth it.”
When Mick sees Max isn’t taking his wanting seriously, the father-of-five may lose his temper and lash out.

Will the resentment of watching his wife cheat on him with Max bubble over and cause him to accidentally kill the anger stalwart?
Meanwhile, Jake addressed why Max has such strong feelings for Linda and said: “He had this weird sort of connection with Linda but I could understand it.
“Linda’s got her own issues and she was drinking and [was battling] addiction and as we’ve seen with Max he had issues with self-harming.
“I think they shared a deep connection through that and obviously Max thought there was more to it than there actually was.”
“When it came to it, Linda was having a wobble probably in her marriage and wasn’t as fully committed as Max hoped that they would be,” Jake continued.
“She probably reminded him most of Tanya in some respects.
“The drinking problem, blonde, settled, Tanya was the same she was a one-man woman and Linda is as well so there are similarities.
“But she probably reminded him of Tanya out of all of the women he’s been with over the years.”
EastEnders continues on BBC One tonight at 7.35pm.
