Mick Carter’s life could be set to hang in the balance in EastEnders as the criminal job led by Aidan Maguire goes pear-shaped – with major consequences for the main players. For weeks, Aidan has been putting the finishing touches to the big job, supported by Phil Mitchell, Vincent Hubbard, Keanu Taylor and an indecisive Mick.
Mick had been in two minds about whether to go along with it – but when Aidan made it clear that he is not to be messed with, Mick was given food for thought. Combining the intimidation from Aidan and Linda’s despair over leaving the area, Mick agrees to get back on board and as 2018 beckons, the men put their plan into action.
However, Shirley soon gets wind of what her son is risking and prepares to lob a spanner in the works. Making a bold decision, Shirley takes drastic action which prevents Mick from being at his position and when he is a no show, Aidan is furious and grabs a gun, ready to sort things out.
A turn of events sees Mick heading to his spot after all but will Aidan realise as he marches off to confront Shirley over his whereabouts? When the job gets underway at last, all appears to be going well – until Masood Ahmed interrupts innocently to introduce his aunt and uncle, Mariam and Arshad.
With things starting to fall apart, the pressure mounts and as Shirley and Linda race to find Mick, disaster soon strikes. And with a gun involved, could someone be about to end up shot? With it being teased repeatedly that Mick will really end up regretting ever crossing paths with Aidan, might he be in the firing line?
In the wake of the episode, we are sworn to secrecy over what follows but Linda is left fearing for the future and cryptic plotlines suggest a fallout and an aftermath that may be just as dramatic as the big plot itself…
One to watch: New Year’s Day at 8pm on BBC One.
