Fans have been speculating on the identity of the victim for the past nine months, as The Six is scheduled to carry out a vicious murder on Christmas Day in EastEnders.
The Six—Shining Carter (Kellie Bright), Kathy Beale (Gillian Taylforth), Denise Fox (Diane Parish), Linda Carter (Kellie Bright), Suki Panesar (Balvinder Sopal), and Stacey Slater (Lacey Turner)—have a well-documented history of vowing to see the men in their lives “get what they deserve.” But which of these men will ultimately meet his maker?
Ravi Gulati (Aaron Thiara), who was chosen as this year’s British Soap Awards’ Best Villain, is one character with an oddly high number of ties to The Six. It seems likely that this character is waiting for his payback.
“This year has been rather hectic for Ravi,” actor Aaron Thiara said.
We’ve seen him argue with Sharon and Keanu about the drug plot and Ravi’s attack on Keanu.
“We have Suki and Denise, which is the major one.” Being tricked into believing that she killed Ranveer when, in reality, it was Ravi, and Kheerat accepted the blame.
This also involves Stacey, who lost a loved one, and of course the Denise affair, which went viral and had a profound impact on the whole Square.
“So, Ravi has a lot of ladies in his life, which has been exciting and entertaining.”
Now seemed like as good a moment as any for Ravi to attempt to make apologies, and saving the life of Eve Unwin (Heather Peace) looked to be the beginning point, especially with so many of The Six fighting for his blood. Is it, however, too little, too late?
When it comes to his past reckless behavior, Ravi is now considering who he wants to be as a person and his conscience is taking control.
He is going through a growing period and wants to be on his own, but his dad has drawn him into this terrible circumstance, which is preventing him from doing so.
“With that, it has created a ton of drama because he wants to hide everything from Suki and Nish, and I suppose he thinks he can start again.”
Does Aaron think that his character may wind up in the dreaded cuffs, given that the audience is divided about whether or not this will be Ravi’s final Christmas?
“I believe that everything is possible.”
