EastEnders fans spot chilling connection between Ben’s rape and Kathy’s past

In Monday’s episode (May 23) Ben had an argument with husband Callum after Callum discovered Ben told Lewis about his vigilante actions.

Ben went to The Vic and soon spotted Lewis on a dating app.

He sent him a message and later met him in The Prince Albert for a drink.

After Lewis shut The Albert down for the night, he and Ben went upstairs and began kissing.

But when Ben got a picture through of Callum and his daughter Lexi, he tried to leave.

Lewis returned and kept trying to kiss Ben.

Ben made it clear he changed his mind and didn’t want to sleep with Lewis anymore.

But Lewis refused to take no for an answer and raped Ben.

However fans realised that Ben and his mother Kathy were both raped in the same building.

Kathy was raped by evil James Willmott-Brown in the same venue as Ben in 1988.

At that time, The Prince Albert was the Dagmar.

What happened between Kathy and James?

In 1988, Kathy was raped by her boss wine bar owner, James, in the Dagmar.

James tried to seduce Kathy, but when she tried to leave he refused to take no for an answer and raped her.

In 2017, James returned to EastEnders and finally confessed that he did rape Kathy in a tense conversation with Kathy’s other son, Ian Beale.
