Bianca (Patsy Palmer) is celebrating after a successful meeting with her probation officer when she receives the unwelcome visitors early next week.
Viewers will see Bianca left horrified when the officers explain that Liam (James Forde) has been truanting from school with some of his friends.
To make matters worse, Bianca is warned that she could be fined or even sent to prison if Liam continues to behave this way.
The next day, Liam ignores his mum's disapproval and skips school once again.
When Bianca finds out, she realises that his antics need to be addressed immediately.
She initially takes a calm approach by making Liam's favourite dinner and trying to talk to him, but he challenges her by asking what she can really do about his truanting.
As a blazing row follows, Liam declares that Bianca knows nothing about him after being in prison for half his life - before complaining about her struggles to provide for the Butcher family.
Completely losing her temper, Bianca flies at Liam and pins him up against the wall - until they are interrupted by a shocked Carol.
In the days that follow, Bianca tries to get Liam back on the right track with help from Carol, and he eventually promises to start attending school again.
However, with Liam's gang storyline ahead, it's clear that Bianca's troubles with her 14-year-old son are only just beginning…
EastEnders airs these scenes on Monday, February 11 and Tuesday, February 12 on BBC One.
