Despite the fact that the murder hasn’t really occurred yet, EastEnders viewers have been utterly enthralled by the most recent murder mystery scenario playing out on television.
If you’re unclear, we’re referring to a murder that will occur on Christmas day as a result of a flash forward episode that aired in February.
The Six will be gathering around the corpse of a mysterious man in the holiday episode, with Sharon Watts (Letitia Dean) announcing his death.
Since Sharon spoke those remarks, we have been utterly fixated on tracking down any information that may connect her, Suki Panesar (Balvinder Sopal), Kathy Beale (Gillian Taylforth), Linda Carter (Kellie Bright), Stacey Slater (Lacey Turner), and Denise Fox (Diane Parish) to a prospective victim.
The presence of a knight in dazzling armour in the background of the flash forward sequence was one such indication that completely stumped us all.
Many people assumed it had something to do with Stacey since it was just behind her and all kinds of rumours started floating around.
Chris Clenshaw, the show’s creator, did, however, drop a hint by saying, not once, but twice, that Linda Carter will soon meet an unexpected “knight in shining armour.”
Things started to fall into place when news of the Knights, a new family, was revealed.
However, the question remains: Are they connected to the murder?
According to Chris Clenshaw, maybe not.
All of a sudden, the knight in shining armour made sense. Everyone was guessing since the Knights weren’t in the scripts when we filmed that sequence.
It has been in custody with George at all times.
Actress Kellie Bright said that when it suddenly appeared, she was just as perplexed as the audience.
“What the hell is that bloody knight doing here?” I said as I entered the set. Concerning the new family in some way.
Colin Salmon, an actor, quipped, “He’s my right hand man.”
At least one red herring has been removed from the list with that. But is it? For now, let’s just draw a pencil line across it.
