For weeks now, EastEnders had been teasing a horrifying Halloween scare for Linda Carter on the BBC One soap. Considering that Halloween was always her and Mick’s thing, it’s befitting to give her a substantial story on the occasion. Especially, since Mick is not with her anymore. Regular viewers would remember that around Christmas 2022, he drowned while trying to save Linda after their car crash. Many speculations were rife that on Halloween night Linda might get a visit from his spirit or at least vision. But is that really the case, or is the visitor someone else?
Those who tuned into the October 30, 2023, episode of EastEnders witnessed a staggering mystery unfold. Linda has been doing her best to hold herself together in her beloved’s absence. She has been trying to keep herself distracted and also honour Mick’s memory by holding a big Halloween bash at The Vic. Although, initially, Elaine felt like the timing isn’t right for the celebrations. But eventually relented, after realizing how much it really means to Linda.
The evening started with a stumping revelation for Elaine. Linda nudged George to tell Elaine the truth that he has given 50% of the Marbella sale to Cindy on EastEnders. Linda also ensure that there was peace between George and Elaine before finally heading upstairs to put Ollie to bed. That’s when the REAL Halloween Horror unfolded! Linda stopped in tracks when she saw Dean standing in her kitchen! Before she could even react, he told her to not scream.
Dean showing up in Linda’s kitchen was not the only surprise. The October 30, 2023, episode also revealed him as Cindy’s new business partner on EastEnders. This revelation came as a huge shock to Ian, and he wasted no time in filling Cindy in on Dean’s sinister history in the square. But will Ian’s words have any impact on Cindy whatsoever? Especially since she is so desperate to get their business off the floor? Circling back to Dean, what could his angle be here? Why would he return to a place where he is hated to the core, could he want something more from Linda? We guess we will have to wait for the next episode to air for more details!
