It’s soooo weird to see them as themselves instead of their characters, lol! They both looked great, and Rita Simons looks so different when she’s not all “tarted” up as Roxie And I agree with them, Larry Lamb is AWESOME!! I still think they made a *huge* mistake killing off Danielle It was just so cruel. And you know what, I don’t buy TPTB’s bullsh*t excuse that they couldn’t have a “happy ending” and that there wouldn’t have been any story left if she had lived. BULL!! There was *plenty* of story to be told. We all know the *happy ending* would have lasted two seconds and then more drama, more angst, more Mitchell conflict. There was years of storyline potential there. UGH! I get why they killed her – it had a BIG impact and made for good drama/tragedy. However, I don’t like the fact that they act like it was their only option. As if any other ending would have ruined the characters/show/stories. That’s soooo not true.

IF They had their happy ending I don’t think we would even be discussing ‘the lost mitchell’ storyline, we would just be like "Yea Dan, she was lost, now she’s found, yippe’ I would be really dissapointed if EastEnders pulled a dirty den and brought her back from the dead, that would just really bother me. So yea it did suck, but this storyline is probably what people will remember when they think of EastEnders in 2000′s Now I totally agree, it is SOOOOO awesome to see them out of character, they look like they have so much fun together and that’s awesome Rita is supposedly a big ‘party girl’ LOL i can kinda see it can’t you?
