There is only one possible outcome for The Six’s plan: weeping. After all, this is EastEnders!
Following her murder of Keanu Taylor (Danny Walters), Linda Carter (Kellie Bright) is receiving assistance from her partners in disposing of her corpse.
One of the ladies in the now-iconic group is Sharon Watts (Letitia Dean), who was being throttled by Keanu just moments before Linda came to his aid and fatally stabbed him.
Kathy Beale (Gillian Taylforth), who was mostly in favor of calling the police—a decision that was becoming less and less practical.
No stranger to a Christmas homicide in the Queen Vic is Stacey Slater (Lacey Turner).
Balvinder Sopal’s character Suki Panesar was the one to seize the most initiative and attempt to use cover tales and alibis to try to resolve the situation.
And, of course, Denise Fox (Diane Parish), who, having smacked an angry Nish Panesar (Navin Chowdhry) over the head with a bottle, may still turn into a killer herself.
The women had plotted to force Nish into the Vic and make him abandon his campaign of violence against Suki.
He reacted angrily, seizing Suki and forcing Denise to fight him off after he was gunned down by them.
At first, it appeared as though Keanu had died, but shortly after his demise, a tiny glimmer of life appeared in him.
Now that his life is in jeopardy, the ladies are eager to make him the victim of their own misfortune.
Denise watched over the shady businessman as the others went to dispose of Keanu’s body. Denise implored him not to die since he’s in a terrible place.
Suki took the lead in creating a narrative to explain Keanu’s disappearance, implying that he and Nish engaged in a fight to end them all.
Their plan appears to be for Nish to answer the phone, meaning that it will be six against one.
Remember that he was just recently freed from prison after being charged with the murder of Eve Unwin, who has since returned (Heather Peace).
And the death of a purported love rival was the only reason he was incarcerated in the first place.
Therefore, the hat clearly fits, but the plot has many flaws and has the potential to fall apart at any point.
Following this entire ordeal, the six ladies now have to confront hurdles individually and collectively to maintain their composure.
Can they remain composed and follow the plan? Or are they on the verge of death?
“So, there’s clearly massive ramifications playing into next year from the aftermath of what occurs at Christmas,” EastEnders CEO Chris Clenshaw exclusively told Metro.co.uk.
We have some really big plans for 2024. Our goal is to reach the 40th anniversary. Obviously, because it will be more than a year away, I won’t reveal too much about our plans.
“I think I can assure you that there will be a grand celebration for the performance.”
It appears that those who thought Christmas Day marked the conclusion of this much anticipated plot may need to think twice.
This is only the beginning—a pretty dramatic one at that.
