EASTENDERS saw the end of its explosive 35th anniversary as Dennis Rickman was revealed as the fatality came to a tragic end after the BBC soap's boat party. Sharon Mitchell has just given birth to another baby boy but will also have to cope with her son's death, as some dark secrets also need to come out.
EastEnders star Sharon Mitchell (played by Letitia Dean) was left heartbroken after last week's dramatic events after her teenage son Dennis Rickman (Bleu Landau) failed to get away alive from the boat tragedy.
Some of the inhabitants got stranded on the boat as Mick, Linda, Ian, and Dennis were among the characters in distress. It was Dennis who struggled to survive after an intense end to the episode on Friday.
He and Ian, who had frenziedly tried to pull Dennis out, but only Ian was rescued in time, were desperately trying to revive the paramedic.
Sharon knows little of her best friend. However, Ian feels responsible for what happened to her late son.
As he figures out whether to tell her the truth or not, it will surely come out sooner or later as Ian continues to feel bad about the consequences of his actions.
Viewers watched Ian look at Dennis on board the boat in a room after he was found guilty of online abuse by his son Bobby Beale (Clay Milner-Russell).
So far, Ian has kept the truth under wraps about how Sharon's son ended up unable to escape from the boat after locking him in.
Ian screamed and lost the keys to the room as the water level increased, as he quickly tried to free Dennis.
Shortly before his death, Dennis left a message on his mum's phone, telling her that Ian had shut him in the It's only a matter of time before Sharon is sure to open the message that her late son gave her.
What will happen when Sharon listens to the last voice message of Dennis that he sent just before dying?
