Viewers on Edge as EastEnders Teases Shocking Christmas Day Murder
EastEnders fans have been eagerly awaiting the revelation of the Christmas Day murder victim. The BBC confirmed earlier this year that one male resident of Albert Square would meet a gruesome end at the hands of The Six women.
Two Characters Safe from The Six
Speculation has been running rampant about the identity of the victim, but now we have some clues. EastEnders spoilers have ruled out two characters, Felix Baker and Denzel Danes, as potential victims. They will both have new storylines in the New Year, making them the only male characters to be ruled out.
Minor Characters and Little Interaction
Fans may not be surprised by this revelation, as both Felix and Denzel are considered more minor characters who have had little interaction with The Six women. Denzel has had his fair share of storylines involving his relationship with Amy Mitchell and his dealings with Denise and Jack Branning, but those seem to have settled. Similarly, Felix has mainly remained a background character, providing support to his friends when they need it.
The Grand Reveal on Christmas Day
The highly-anticipated Christmas Day episode of EastEnders will air at 9:45pm for an hour to ensure that no one misses out on the action and the revelation of the murderer. The aftermath will continue with an extended Boxing Day episode to explore the fallout.
Many Names Still in the Mix
While Felix and Denzel are safe, there are still several characters who could be the victim of The Six. Names like Nish Panesar, Ravi Gulati, Rocky Cotton, Phil Mitchell, and Theo Hawthorne have all been mentioned as likely candidates. Some fans have even speculated that Ian Beale, Martin Fowler, Keany Taylor, and Jack Branning could meet a nasty end, as they all have connections to the women.
A Year of Clues and Teasers
The Christmas Day murder storyline kicked off in February with a flash forward, showing the moment the women realized the mystery man was dead. Throughout the year, clues have been dropped, and each of The Six women had a week of episodes dedicated to teasing their involvement in the murder.
