And last night, after Daniel Cook (Ade Edmondson) passed away after learning that Jean Slater (Gillian Wright) had been given the all-clear following her cancer treatment.
Fans of EastEnders suspect yet another tragedy after seeing a shocking picture behind the scenes could be about to hit Walford. Rainie Cross star Tanya Franks posted a sweet photo from the set on Twitter on Thursday.
In the photo, Queen Vic can be seen with a massive rainbow in the sky above it.

That was not the only thing in the picture, as spotted by eagle-eyed fans who followed her.
In addition to what looks like a West Ham Football Club scarf, soap fans quickly noticed a bunch of flowers attached to the iconic fence railings in Albert Square.
Viewers began to question whether another shock death was about to hit Walford, apart from the three confirmed.
Last week Dennis Rickman was killed in a boat wreck, the same night Leo King was accidentally stabbed to death by Whitney Dean, who had been stalking for months.
Now, fans know that Daniel Cook is going to die soon after he's told that his cancer is terminal and that he's only had weeks to live.
Now the flowers have led to the theory that someone else will be killed in weeks.
One fan tweeted: "This is wonderful; however, who's the flowers for….. have we lost someone else?"
Another said: "Fresh flowers on the Albert Square railings… wonder if that means someone else is getting killed off in 6-8 weeks…"
A third tweeted: "Who else is a West Ham fan on the Square? I can't see Billy dying, but it looks like someone does."
Fans began to ask whether Mick Carter, Billy Mitchell, or Stuart Highway were at risk, knowing that they all support the club. Others were able to ask whether it was a tribute to Daniel, as he had just been shown wearing a West Ham scarf. Young Dennis was also a fan of West Ham, so maybe that's for him.
