Fans waited with bated breaths all through 2023 to see who finally dies in EastEnders Christmas special. We have to admit the BBC One soap really outdid itself. The revelation episode was thrilling to epic proportions. Viewers were on the edge of their seats the entire time. In fact, even till the very end, it was not set in stone who actually dies! But the mystery did resolve in the final moments of the special festive offering.
Those who tuned into the EastEnders episode over Christmas saw that Nish was released from prison, and he darted straight toward Suki. However, she took refuge at The Vic to keep herself safe from her abusive husband. Meanwhile, Sharon, too, arrived at The Vic, as did the other ladies. Unfortunately, Sharon’s wedding never happened, thanks to Phil revealing the truth about Keanu’s involvement in Albie’s kidnapping.
In rapid succession, both Keanu and Nish arrived at The Vic to talk to Sharon and Suki, respectively, on EastEnders. When Suki stood up to him in defiance, he attacked her and tried to kidnap her. In a panic, Denise smashed his head to save Suki. Meanwhile, Keanu demanded Sharon to handover Albie to him. But she refused. She took great pleasure in reminding him that he wasn’t Albie’s bio dad. Enraged, Keanu grabbed her throat and tried choking her. Desperate to save Sharon’s life, Linda stabbed Keanu, and he fell to his death on Queen Vic’s floor.
The Blame Game Begins On EastEnders
Now, just in case you thought the drama would end with the big reveal on Christmas Day. You are wrong! EastEnders boss Chris Clenshaw teases that a whole new dramatic saga will now begin and play into 2024. A year which will also mark the soap’s 40th anniversary. Thus, fans can expect many explosive twists and turns in the upcoming days. The first will come in the form of pinning the blame for Keanu’s murder!
The latest EastEnders spoilers suggest that while Keanu is certainly dead, Nish is still hanging by a thread for dear life. However, things are much more dire for The Six. After all, they are all very much alive and would like to stay out of prison. Thus, they may soon have to come up with a perfect cover-up plan. Spoilers say that they may finally settle on pinning the blame for the murder on Nish. If he dies, their version of the story will be the only version. Meanwhile, if he survives, it’s their word against his.
And quite honestly, going by his criminal history, chances are high that his version will not stand for much on EastEnders. Especially if six women give the same statement against him. However, there is also no denying that their version of the story won’t be free of loopholes. So, if they aren’t careful, one of them might slip up, and the whole air castle might come crashing down. So, we think the game isn’t over, it has actually just begun! So stay tuned to TV Season & Spoilers for more EastEnders updates and news!
