EastEnders fans have been left reeling as the show dropped three enormous bombshells in a gripping episode which centered on the long awaited reveal of Claudette Hubbard’s secret.
After Vincent walked in to discover his mum trying to conceal Gavin Sullivan’s body having hit him over the head and seemingly killed him, he became dubious when she desperately made excuses for him not to involve the police.
Her panic reached fever pitch when Gavin disappeared and the pieces started to slot together for Vincent as he discovered a never before seen picture of his dad Henry with Eric Mitchell.
As Claudette’s explanations started to run out, viewers were soon in shock over the three explosive twists which followed…
CLAUDETTE KILLED VINCENT’S DAD, HENRY
Having tried to pin the blame on Eric for Henry’s death, Claudette was finally forced to admit that it was her who murdered Henry – as they clashed when he failed to get money from Eric. Having pushed Henry from a balcony to his death, Claudette buried him – and then set out to frame Eric after being jealous of the fact that he wouldn’t leave Peggy for her.
If you thought your mind was blown – put yourselves in Vincent’s shoes. His whole world has just changed forever…
CLAUDETTE WAS RESPONSIBLE FOR FATBOY’S DEATH
The death of Fatboy left Vincent – and us – completely traumatised. And as he had a go at Claudette for her lie leading to people dying, she hit back that it was better that Fatboy died than he did. Vincent looked crestfallen as his mum added that he should be thanking her for what she did – and it dawned that she knew exactly what fate lay in store for poor, young Arthur.
VINCENT TRIED TO MURDER CLAUDETTE
As the shocks he had been hit with made Vincent realise that his entire life had been a massive lie, he stared coldly at his mum as he began to throttle her in the basement below the house. Her eyes filled with fear as it became clear Vincent intended to finish her off – but Patrick intervened, which is where we left the sorry tale.
But the twists are far from over…
There is still so much to pass. Will Patrick discover the truth? Will Claudette play the victim and attempt to frame her own son for trying to kill her? Will Patrick discover too much and get caught in the crossfire? Will Vincent go off the rails after everything that has happened? Will the truth about Fatboy’s death be exposed? And just where has Gavin gone this time?
You’d be mad not to tune in to the next episodes…
