Linda Carter (Kellie Bright) is to be left fearing that Mick (Danny Dyer) has done away with Dean Wicks in shock scenes to be shown next week.
The whereabouts of Linda’s rapist are currently unknown thanks to Dean – who had been left comatose in the barrel store of the Vic following a fight with Mick – vanishing at the end of Friday’s episode.
But when Mick’s daughter Nancy (Maddy Hill) finds the lighter with which Dean threatened to use to burn down the Vic, she approaches Mick and demands to know the truth about what happened between Mick and Dean – how far did Mick go?
With her fears not being allayed, Nancy decides to open up to mum Linda about what has happened and pretty soon the Queen Vic landlady is stopping Mick in his tracks. Has Mick’s infamous temper brought his family fresh trouble? And has Dean really breathed his last?
