EastEnders spoilers: Lola Pearce worried as Isaac Baptiste becomes obsessed with dead brother Paul

DOWNWARD SPIRAL

LOLA Pearce grows worried about Isaac Baptiste and his obsession with his dead brother Paul Trueman next week in EastEnders. 

The teacher - played by Stevie Basaula in the BBC soap - has been heading on a downward spiral after he stopped taking his schizophrenia medication because thinks that he's been misdiagnosed with the disorder.

Viewers know that his girlfriend Lola has been noticing subtle changes in his behaviour and starting to worry. 

In episodes set to air next week, Loa continues to fret about Isaac’s escalating obsession with Paul. 

When she confronts him, Isaac insists he just wants to share his excitement with the woman he loves.

Later, Lola bumps into Isaac and invites him over to her but he wriggles out of it. 

EastEnders has been working with the mental health charity Mind on the storyline. 

Speaking about the soap storyline, actor Stevie recently said: “This is close to my heart, to be telling Isaac’s story is a privilege.

“I hope it will start a dialogue for people to have conversations about mental health and that anyone living with the condition will feel seen.

“Working with Mind has been so useful, I spoke to a young man who bravely shared his story and it was inspiring to learn how he’s managing  his condition.

“There’s so much we think we know about schizophrenia, but it’s often not the reality for people living with the condition.

EastEnders executive producer Jon Sen said: “Working with Mind has been imperative in ensuring we tell Isaac’s story truthfully.

“There’s a multitude of layers to this storyline and Mind’s expertise has been crucial as we explore Isaac’s experience.”

“I hope that anyone engaging with Isaac’s story will gain a better understanding and can approach someone they know that may be struggling from a more positive place.”
