Sonia has been searching for her long-lost father as she admitted she sent Terry a letter during lockdown.
Terry began getting to know the family during drinks at the Queen Vic pub in Thursday visit to Albert Square.
He bumped into Jack Branning who he remembered when he was just 13-years-old.
However, Sonia questioned where Terry has been for the past 35 years and told him he couldn’t pick up where he left off.
Some viewers are also sceptical of Terry’s intentions.
One fan conspired: “Is Dotty paying Terry to be Sonia's dad?”
A second noted: “I don’t know whether I trust Terry or not?”
Another said: “Terry doesn't seem very interested in getting to know Sonia, he looks like he's just enjoying a jolly up in the pub.”
Terry actor Brian told The Mirror: "He's got to find his daughter. He has been away for a long time, and of course, we find out why.
“Really, all I think I can say is that he's cheeky, he’s got the gift of the gab, and his name is Rocky.
“You cannot come in with that backstory… of course things happen, and there will be certain things happening.”
He added: "More than anything, in the early episodes he is trying to convince Sonia.
“He has been away all this time, why? Am I really her dad? Initially, you are sceptical, you are going, ‘Is he?’ because he embellishes.
"It is very moving because she hasn't seen her dad and is annoyed that he's not been there, and he is upset that he's not been there."
Will Sonia reach out to Terry again? Can Terry stay away from Albert Square?
EastEnders continues on Friday at 8:30pm on BBC One.
