Denise recently flirted with danger when Ravi (played by Aaron Thiara) tried to entice her into spending a steamy night with him.
But after facing major doubt and her husband Jack’s suspicions, the hairdresser portrayed by Diane Parish backtracked and refused to give Ravi the time of day.
However, in recent scenes of the BBC One soap, she found out Jack (Scott Maslen) has anew criminal target he’s planning to take down – Ravi himself.
She has since grown increasingly mortified, knowing that her actions with Ravi may be uncovered by Jack – which could then lead to the breakdown of their marriage, already left on the rocks.
Coming up next week, Denise continues to worry about Jack’s investigation into Ravi and tries to persuade him to reconsider.
However, when she spots Ravi in The Vic with another woman, Denise is jealous.
She is then enraged when she learns that the pair are heading to the same hotel of her own dalliance with Ravi – and she makes a bombshell decision out of anger.
Meanwhile, Jack decides to enlist the help of fellow copper Callum Highway (Tony Clay) in his investigation and the latter thus receives a life-changing promotion.
But he soon makes an explosive discovery and Denise panics for her marriage.
Could it all come to a head?
As teased by a flashforward scene, Denise will be involved in a murder mystery due to unravel on Christmas 2023.
Denise is one of six matriarchs to be suspected of murder as Stacey Slater, Linda Carter, Suki Panesar, Kathy Beale and Sharon Watts will also be involved.
The six beloved Walford ladies have been seen nursing injuries or a potential murder weapon as a dead man lays near The Vic’s Christmas tree.
Fans of the London-based program have since been going wild, sharing their craziest theories and Ravi is thought to be a potential victim.
But he’s not the only one as Nish Panesar and Dean Wicks could also meet their end during the festive season.
EastEnders airs from Monday to Thursday on BBC One.
