As you probably know, Kat Moon, played by actress Jessie Wallace, appeared on EastEnders from 2000 to 2005, then again from 2010 to 2016. Alfie Moon, played by actor Shane Richie, appeared on EastEnders from 2002 to 2005, then again from 2010 to 2016. So, here is a brief rundown on who the two characters are, as a sort of refresher. Kat Moon is the daughter of Viv and Charlie Slater.
She also has three sisters: Lynne Hobbs, Belinda Peacock and Little Mo. Kat has a daughter, Zoe and four sons: Luke, Tommy, Bert and Ernie. Kat was married to Alfie Moon from 2003 to 2013 and then again in 2014 to the current time. Alfie Moon is the son of Cherry and Alfred Moon. He has one brother, Spencer. Besides Kat, he was married to Liza Moon from 1998 to 2003 and Roxy Mitchell from 2013 to 2014.
So, what are Kat and Alfie looking for in Redwater, Ireland? It seems they are looking for Kat’s long-lost son, Luke. When Kat was just 14-years-old, she was raped by her uncle Harry Slater. That rape resulted in Kat becoming pregnant and giving birth to twins, Zoe and Luke. Kat never knew that Luke even existed since he whisked off to Ireland. Zoe was raised as Kat’s sister in the beginning, until Kat revealed the details about the rape to her family, along with the fact that Zoe is her daughter, not her sister.
