Prepare for an epic showdown in tonight’s EastEnders as the eagerly-anticipated three-hander finally airs, with new pictures showing Linda Carter confronting daughter-in-law Whitney over her kiss with Mick.
Monday’s episode saw Linda return to Walford permanently after spending most of this year caring for her mum (or so she claimed), and ended with Mick delivering the bombshell to his wife he was in love with someone else.
Tonight’s episode focuses solely on the Carter love triangle and features just Mick, Linda and Whitney as the truth about Mick’s betrayal comes to light.
Mick will reveal his kiss with Whit and confess his feelings for her have deepened, leading to an emotional confrontation between the trio.
Linda is stunned to realise Whitney is the one who caught Mick’s eye, and drags her son’s ex into a blazing row.
But as L tries to digest the devastating disclosure, Mick unleashes his own tirade pointing out some uncomfortable truths about the state of their marriage. Will he claim he only sought solace elsewhere because his missus abandoned him when she went to Watford?
With the three-hander having been teased for months, fans are eager to see what the outcome will be for the Carters’ marriage, and judging by these pictures whether Whitney will end up with a black eye.
Could there be a full-on catfight in the Queen Vic as the Carter ladies clash? Or will Linda turn her back on her husband for betraying her?
Where does this leave Whitney and Woody’s engagement? And can Mick and Linda, for so long one of soap’s most solid (and faithful) couples, survive?
