However, the target was not actually a crew member and was Stuart’s funeral assistant!
And he managed to grab a front row seat for the weirdest proposition in the history of Albert Square as the Stuart Highway emerged from a coffin disguised as Dracula.
Smoke filled the room, the lights turned red, and Stuart sprang from the coffin and knelt.
Horrified, Rainie pushed the “idiot” and ran out of the room as Stuart chased her, but there was something hilarious near her legs.
Viewers, confused, watched a man’s head pop up and peak around the door frame.
Speaking to Twitter, a spectator asked, “Am I the only one who saw someone at the door when Raine pulled out his head was at Stuart’s knees”
“Has anyone else noticed the crew member peering around the doorframe in tonight’s #EastEnders?” Added another.
A third said: “Someone else sees the head of the man #Eastenders tonight? “
“I just saw this scene again because I thought it was funny and I noticed on Stuart’s leg that a guy’s head had just come out. Classic, “tweeted a fourth.
The real blunder imitated the action of the soap because Stuart’s proposal was certainly not planned.
Rainie was furious that Stuart had once again made a sticky offer and rushed upstairs.
Locking herself in the bathroom, she shouted, “Why can’t you be like a normal human being for once ?! “
As Stuart tried to defend his actions, Rainie said, “Chic, tasteful, friendly – it was none of that. “
Stuart admitted he didn’t deserve Rainie, saying, “You’re beautiful and you’re smart and you’re nice and you’re worth a million of these people! “
Eventually, Rainie came out and faced Stuart as he delivered a passionate speech declaring his love for her.
When he asked her to marry her again, she replied, “We had something, but let’s go. “
Stuart looked devastated – but it all turned out to be another farce.
Rainie smiled and shouted, “Two can play this game … I loved it!” I am going to marry you! “
