The 35th anniversary week of EastEnders is in full swing, and the long-awaited boat party will soon take at least one life BBC executives keep their eyes as tight as possible on what follows the disaster in which at least one passenger meets its end. Here's what we know about which characters are at risk and why, as we wait with bated breath.
Who dies in the EastEnders boat party?
Linda and Mick are two of those in danger of meeting their end because Linda is trapped under the deck, and Mick refuses to leave her side.
He expressed his love for his wife, saying to her:' If this boat goes down, I'll go down with you.' Could these be some famous last words? We are not the only Carters that could be at risk either. Tina is the sweet Carter who's able to get along with pretty much everyone–that would make it even more tragic if she were the one to end up dead and buried.
Pictures showed her calling for Mick and boarding a rescue dinghy–could the soap turn the plot on her head and make her a dramatic shock victim?
In the meantime, Ian Beale had no idea that when he confronted Dennis at the boat party and locked him in a cabin below the bridge, he might unwittingly lead him to an untimely end. Ian tried to support Dennis as the room was filled with water, but he ended up dropping the keys that would save the youngster Would Ian, who looked ready to run, really let Denny die?
It has been confirmed that Bex is leaving EastEnders, and it has been indicated that she should make a dramatic exit, with recent photos showing Jack –who has had a close relationship with Bex in the past–watching nervously from the dock. Tuesday night's instalment saw her taken ill on the boat after taking the pills supplied to her by Dotty's provider–which we later learned were contaminated after Sonia had been contacted by the police to let her know, telling her that the distributor had been arrested and that Bex's number had been found on her cell.
Will Bex die as a result of what she took? As if that wasn't enough drama for our emotions, the deadly rivalry between Ben, Phil and Keanu is due to spill over the week after Keanu kidnapped Callum, and we can expect even more bloodshed even they eventually meet each other. Could this finish with one or all three of them dead?
