The dust may have settled after an unforgettable 35th anniversary week but don’t expect the drama to stop there. In the wake of Dennis Rickman’s (Bleu Landau) tragic death, Ian Beale (Adam Woodyatt) and Sharon Mitchell (Letitia Dean) have found their lives torn apart forever in different ways.
Meanwhile, the Carters find themselves at a crossroads as Linda (Kellie Bright) knows that she has to fight her demons to save her marriage while Whitney Dean (Shona McGarty) finds her life spiralling out of control as she is jailed for the murder of Leo King (Tom Wells).
Here is what you can expect to see coming:
Will Ian tell the truth?
Ian has had a huge hand in the responsibility for Dennis’ death – knowing what it’s like to lose a child, Ian will know the trauma his life long friend Sharon is going through. Aware that he is the cause of what has happened, he has a terrible guilt to live with. With a borken Sharon welcoming a new baby boy into the world and Ian keeping the secret of his involvement in Dennis’ death, will he crack under the pressure?
Ben’s hunt for Callum
A lot of loose ends may have been tied up but poor Callum is still stuck in that warehouse, unable to move after Shirley’s search for him. With Keanu now gone, Ben is in a state, wondering how he will ever reunite with the man he loves.
There were location pictures which saw Max Bowden, Tony Clay, Ricky Champ and Jamie Borthwick filming at a warehouse a while ago – is there still hope for Callum as they get a lead? Whatever happens, it’s not the only problem that Ben is set to face as events from the night return to haunt him.
Whitney’s prison agony
Having been arrested for the death of Leo, Whitney’s argument that it was in self defence looks set to fall on deaf ears – as evidence starts to mount against her and she ends up locked up. And when one of her lies rears its head and makes her look guilty, she fears that Leo could have his final revenge by having her sent down for murder.
Linda fights back
Linda’s marriage was well beyond breaking point before the boat party but the almost death experience in the arms of her true love Mick has bound to have been a wake up call for Linda. She knows how much she stands to lose and what her alcoholism will cost her.
As recent events hit home hard, will Linda determine to fight back against her addiction and can her family rally round her and help her through the next stages?
