EastEnders viewers are persuaded that Phil and Sharon Mitchell, recently reunited, will ask Karen Taylor to hand baby Kayden over, but will feisty characters go down without a fight?
EastEnders favourite Karen Taylor (Lorraine Stanley) is planning to leave Walford with her baby grandson Kayden and start a new life.
Sharon Mitchell decided to hand over her newborn baby to his grandma, Karen, who was delighted to have the chance to raise her son Keanu’s (Danny Walters) infant after struggling to bond with her new baby after the death of her oldest child Dennis. However, according to fans of the BBC One drama, which predicted their own EastEnders spoilers, Karen’s hope of taking up Kayden may be cut short.
The gobby mom-of-six was pleased when the grieving Sharon asked her to look after Kayden, but she figured the new mom just wanted some time. Karen was left gobsmacked when Ian Beale offered her cash, realizing that Kayden will be on a more permanent basis. The businessman from Walford admitted that asking Karen to raise Karen was a huge deal, and promised to pay all financial expenses.
However, Ian made it very clear that she would need to move on from Albert Square for good if she wanted to keep her grandson. A distraught Karen didn’t like the sound of leaving her family in Walford at all, but she quickly considered Sharon’s situation and what it meant to Kayden. Notwithstanding her close pals being skeptical about the decision, Sharon has made it known that the only way she will get forward with her life is by giving up her youngest son.
Since Sharon’s estranged husband, Phil Mitchell (Steve McFadden) returned to Walford, the pair reunited with no mention of the infant Kayden.
Meanwhile, Karen has been looking for a place to live outside Albert Square, and her relationship with Billy Mitchell has been put under pressure. Karen’s ex Mitch Baker originally planned to accompany her on her new adventure. However, when he admitted that he still loved her, the former couple decided that going solo would be better for her.
Could Phil and Sharon change their hearts and want Kayden back? EastEnders fans have taken their keyboards to predict a custody battle between Karen and the Mitchell clan.
Taking to Twitter, one fan wrote, “I’m interested to see if Phil is going to ask Sharon to take Kayden back from Karen.” Another said, “I feel Sharon and Phil are trying to get Kayden back from Karen.” The third added, “I’m just waiting for Sharon to have Kayden back inevitably.” Karen has been a special relationship for her baby grandson, so will Kayden be taken away from her?
EastEnders starts Monday at 8 pm on BBC One.
