Mick Carter’s life is hanging in the balance but the big question on the lips of EastEnders fans is not whether he will survive (come on, would Walford bosses really kill off Danny Dyer?) but who is the man who pointed the gun and seemingly shot him?
We say seemingly as it’s not totally clear as the credits rolled whether Mick was hit – although Linda’s agonised scream certainly suggests that he was. But just before the gun went off, Mick looked into the face of the perp and exclaimed: ‘it’s you!’ meaning that these two have history.
But don’t worry, you haven’t missed anything – the soap is yet to actually reveal who this guy is and what his connection to Mick is. We even trawled through IMDB just to make sure we hadn’t seen this chap in Walford before.
Fans won’t have long to wait for the mystery to be solved as answers will come in the following episode – both on Mick’s fate after the shooting and who this man is.
Meanwhile Aidan Maguire will have to fight with everything he has got to stop his heist from being the end of him – can he pull it back together and salvage both the money and his liberty?
Or are he and his cohorts set to head to prison as 2018 kicks off?
