One male EastEnders character would die this Christmas, it was revealed in a flash-forward sequence earlier this year.
Fans have been speculating about who would die on Christmas Day ever since EastEnders aired a flash-forward sequence earlier this year showing a male character dead at the Queen Vic.
Additionally, the most recent episode of the popular BBC soap opera may have provided yet another clue as to who the victim may be.
A male victim was surrounded by six potential female suspects in the brief video that was released in February of this year: Stacey Slater (Lacey Turner), Suki Panesar (Balvinder Sopal), Sharon Watts (Letitia Dean), Kathy Beale (Gillian Taylforth), Linda Carter (Kellie Bright), and Denise Fox (Diane Parish).
While the identity of the dead has remained a mystery, one clue—a special pair of cufflinks—was revealed.
Fans are predicting that one of the soap opera’s most illustrious characters may ultimately die at Christmas because of this particular item.
Over the previous few months, the cufflinks had already been traded multiple times.
They were originally Nish Panesar’s (Navin Chowdhry) property. However, Rocky Cotton (Brian Conley) defeated him in a poker game, and he lost them.
Rocky gave them to Scott Maslen’s character Jack Branning because he didn’t want them. But in the most recent episode, Jack gave them to Phil Mitchell (Steve McFadden) once more.
Take care of these, they’re Nish’s therefore possibly expensive, Jack said as Phil got ready for his wedding to Kat Slater (Jessie Wallace).
Then Phil said, “Cheers! I think I lost mine in a commotion.
Therefore, may Phil be the one to pass away on Christmas Day?
Since Sharon is one of the six suspects, her comment about how “nice” the cufflinks were and her assistance in putting them on may have been a premonition of the murder of Phil. Or by December, will someone else be wearing the cufflinks?
Some admirers posted their theories on social media.The cufflinks are moving, one Twitter user wrote. There is no chance they will remain with Phil until Christmas.
“Wondering how many times the cufflinks will change hands before Christmas, but it is entertaining when they appear#EastEnders,” another person said.
Another person wrote: “THE CUFFLINKS ARE ON THE MOVE I REPEAT THE CUFFLINKS ARE ON THE MOVE #EastEnders.” (sic)
Watchers will need to tune in to find out if Phil keeps the cufflinks until then.
It is entirely feasible that they will change hands again before the murder since there are still a few months till it occurs.
Will Nish receive them back? Or will someone else wear them on Christmas Day in the end? Whoever owns them on December 25 will die, that much is certain for viewers.
