Reiss, in between Debbie and Sonia, has a decision to make.

EastEnders: Reiss’s wife needs to wake up, beg fans as he wants to take more money

But what will happen if she does open her eyes?!

EastEnders fans are begging for a big twist in the Reiss and Sonia IVF storyline, as they admit they’re desperate for Reiss’s wife Debbie, who’s in a coma, to wake up!

After all, Reiss is about to get his mitts on even more of his comatose wife’s money in order to fund his IVF attempt with new girlfriend Sonia Fowler.

And the fans are NOT impressed with his behaviour.

In yesterday’s episode of EastEnders, viewers saw Reiss head off to visit Debbie at her care home. He told her he was going to take more of her savings to have another go at having a baby with Sonia.

But Bianca was watching and listening in horror!

With the real source of Reiss’s “trust fund” exposed, will Sonia be as shocked as Bianca was? After all, she’s no stranger to helping herself to a relative’s cash, is she? She stole from her step-grandmother Dot Branning.

Waking up!

Whatever happens next, the fans are very clear what they want! They’re convinced it’s only a matter for time before Debbie wakes up and finds out exactly what her husband’s been up to!

“I wonder when Debbie will miraculously wake up from her coma?” mused one disgruntled fan.

And it’s clear from comments on social media that no one is very impressed by what Reiss is doing. In fact one viewer even called it “financial abuse”.

So perhaps if Debbie does wake up, Reiss could find himself behind bars? At least that’s what some fans are hoping for!

“Should be jailed for stealing money from his comatose wife,” said another fan.

Sonia in trouble?

But the wrath of the fans wasn’t reserved for light-fingered Reiss. They’re also pretty unimpressed with Sonia being involved in this whole thing.

One fan summed it up quite neatly, writing: “Sonia’s kind of a terrible person.”

Whilst we know it would make things really tricky for Sonia (and Reiss!) if Debbie does wake up, we can’t help but think it would also make for some brilliant drama!
