At the end of last night's episode, Stacey - played by 21-year-old Lacey Turner - bid an emotional farewell to her husband Bradley in the mortuary following his untimely death during Friday's live ep, before she ran away in tears down the street.
However, in an episode to be filmed in the next few weeks, Max - portrayed by Jake Wood - finally comes face to face with Stacey for the first time following her killer confession to discuss the ramifications of her actions.
Speaking on This Morning today, Wood said: "[There are] specifically big things [coming up] between Max and Stacey. I know that there's a two-hander episode between those two characters, which is going to be filmed very shortly and will go out very quickly."
He added: "I'm very excited about that. I love working with Lacey - she's an incredible actress. I think it'll be very interesting. The stuff between them will relate to this [the murder], I guess. I haven't read it yet."
A Walford source this afternoon told DS: "When and where Stacey next appears remains to be seen, but it'll be half an hour of revelations between Max and Stacey as we finally slot some of the the missing pieces into the 'Who Killed Archie?' jigsaw."
They teased: "But will Max stand by Stacey and keep her confession a secret? Or will Stacey live to regret her heat-of-the-moment revelation?"
The episode, penned by EastEnders lead writer and series consultant Simon Ashdown, is apparently due to air within the next month or so.
