Callum's future still hung in the balance on the floor of a factory on Friday's show, while Whitney admitted to murdering Leo and was taken into custody.
Mick and Linda reconciled in a remarkable heart-warming moment after he saved her on the cruise.
Explaining how the producers have chosen which character to kill off before the announcement that Dennis died, EastEnders ' Senior Executive Producer Kate Oates told Metro.co.uk: "As we spoke about this – and it's valid of any show or story-you want an outcome. That's the only thing that comes out of the tragedy we're having.
"There is something almost Greek [ tragedy ] about this particular person, as it could be claimed that it has been known for quite some time," Oates concluded. "We spoke about it in-depth, and we had a lot of arguments about it. A bright venue is the conference room for the story.
The aftermath airs Monday at 8:00 pm on RTÉ One and BBC One.
