Catastrophe is about to consume Walford in the upcoming episodes on EastEnders. And we are not talking about Cindy Beale’s return to the town. A literal fire will engulf an iconic part of Walford this Autumn and as a result, many lives will be on the line. Unfortunately, the spoilers confirm that at least one of the soap’s iconic characters will breathe their last in this horrifying tragedy. Keep reading to find out who it is going to be.
TV Season & Spoilers earlier reported the unexpected news of actress Lorraine Stanley’s exit from EastEnders. Lorraine’s character Karen Taylor has been a Walford staple for quite a while now. Moreover, her comic timing and screen presence has always been raved by fans. Thus, the news of her impending exit came as huge shock! Now, the revelation of Karen’s exit story line will send an even bigger shock wave! We knew from the very beginning that Karen’s exit will not be your average “bye, see you never!” Considering the force that she is, it had to be something explosive! And it is going to be EXACTLY that!
The latest EastEnders spoilers reveal that a massive fire will break out in Walford this Autumn. The horrifying flames will engulf Karen’s cafe! The blaze will end up completely destroying the iconic eatery, and will also land many lives in peril. While most of those people will survive, Karen Taylor will become an unfortunate casualty in the terrorizing incident. Earlier, when the news that broke out that Karen’s character was being written out, not much was revealed about how it will happen.
It was a tough task to come up with a valid reason as to why Karen would ever leave Walford on EastEnders. The Taylor matriarch loves her family, and has never expressed any desires of abandoning them and moving away. Thus, an involuntary exit caused by a tragedy was the only solution. Moreover, an icon like Taylor surely deserves a memorable and dramatic exit! The spoilers reveal that her final scenes will air later this year. So stay tuned to TV Season & Spoilers for more EastEnders updates about Karen Taylor’s exit from the BBC One soap.
