The season of dark deeds and deadly plots hasn’t left EastEnders yet. Recently, fans have been on the edge of their seats on Christmas Day murder. And once again, the soap is ready to bid farewell to one more character. This time, it is Rocky Cotton! He is in a very tight spot on the show right now.
Undoubtedly, Rocky had faults in his stars to be walking on the murder scene. Actor Brian Conley has confirmed his exit from the soap. Following that, fans can’t help but speculate on the endgame for his character. Follow through as we dig deep for more information about Rocky’s departure!
Fan Theories on Rocky’s Frosty Exit
Ever since Brian (Rocky Cotton) confirmed his departure from EastEnders, fans have been putting forward their own theories. Rocky was in the frame to be the cold body on the floor earlier. It led many to speculate that he would be the goner this Christmas. However, that didn’t happen, as we saw Linda dispatching Keanu straight to the eternal fire leading this theory to take a different direction.
Viewers have noticed some clues in recent episodes, i.e., the dramatic Christmas Day murder and The Six cover-up. But the latest episode has certainly prompted people to speculate more as it suggested a FREEZING death for Rocky!
In the latest episode, Sonia stumbled upon drunken Rocky, seemingly dozing off in the doorway as snow fell. She questioned Rocky and also warned him that he’d die in the cold! It sparked speculation that Rocky would perish in the frigid weather, maybe due to hypothermia.
Or Is It the Other Way Around On EastEnders?
Rocky has been navigating between a rock and a hard place. Kathy had called it quits when Rocky was exposed for torching the café. It led to the deaths of Peter and Bobby Beale. Nearly everyone had abandoned him, and he was all alone with no hope on Christmas day.
Rocky tried to enter the Vic while The Six were dealing with the murder. Linda somehow managed to ward off the drunken man but she didn’t do a good job covering her terror. In addition, Rocky observed the group as they headed to the café to dispose of Keanu’s body. Who knows, he might get implicated in the murder of Keanu Taylor.
Will Keanu’s absence and Linda’s acting fishy make Rocky connect the dots? Or will he succumb to the snow? Stay tuned to TV Season & Spoilers for all the burning updates on EastEnders!
