EASTENDERS fans certainly can’t fathom Mick Carter not behind the bar of The Vic, but if he’s forced to sell, the charming landlord’s tenure in Walford could be coming to an end soon.
Since entering the BBC soap in 2013, Mick (played by Danny Dyer) has become a fan favorite. Fans were devastated to learn that he’d be leaving the soap soon after the actor and the BBC revealed it last week. However, he is about to be publically humiliated at his home and workplace in subsequent moments. Mick may opt to sell The Vic as he begins to move on, feeling guilty and still hurt by his breakup with Linda Carter (Kellie Bright). Could the popular character’s final months on the show be spent somewhere else than the renowned pub?
Mick, who had been attempting to aid Janine Butcher (Charlie Brooks) when she had nowhere else to go, just kicked her out of The Vic.
The legendary troublemaker, on the other hand, is still up to her old shenanigans.
In later episodes, she tries to utilize Mick to persuade social workers that she is a good mother to Scarlett (Tabitha Byron).
The social workers are assessing Kat Slater (Jessie Wallace) over Scarlett, according to Jean and Stacey Slater (Gillian Wright and Lacey Turner).
Janine begs Mick for permission to use The Vic’s address, and he agrees.
When Honey Mitchell (Emma Barton) witnesses Jay Brown (Jamie Borthwick) do his community service, she is embarrassed.
He runs across Janine, who is amused by his predicament.
Claire, the social worker at the car dealership, later asks him for a character reference for Janine, and he views it as an opportunity to retaliate.
Janine’s true colors are something he relishes describing to the surprised social worker.
Jay tells Janine about what he told the social worker about her background in the pub.
Mick is concerned about what Jay has done later, but Janine seemed unconcerned.
She dismisses her previous transgressions, convinced that they would have made no difference.
In an attempt to manipulate Mick, she asks him to play the role of her partner before her meeting with the social worker.
Scarlett, a schoolgirl, informs Janine angrily that she is ignoring her because she knows her mother’s Christmas shenanigans were only to get one over on the Slaters.
Mick quickly agrees to Janine’s request since he feels terrible for her, but he insists that no one else knows.
Regrettably, Jay notices Mick assisting Janine with the social worker.
He decides to scold him in front of everyone at the pub and accuses them of having an affair.
Overhearing, Stuart Highway (Ricky Champ) suspects he’s talking about Rainie Highway (Tanya Franks).
Janine’s meeting with Claire upstairs gets off to a good start.
Will Janine play along with the gossip and pretend that she and Mick are actually dating?
It wouldn’t be unusual for her to take advantage of someone’s generosity in order to achieve what she wants.
She may end up telling the locals that Mick has been cheating on her.
Because most Walford residents are apprehensive of Janine, they may change their minds about Mick.
They are aware that he and Linda just divorced and have expressed sympathy for him, but they are unaware of the specifics.
Mick could decide it’s time to move on, fed up with his neighbors condemning him because of Janine and floundering in the Vic without Linda.
He might wind up selling The Vic and attempting to move on with his life.
With the character departing later this year, it’s understandable that he’d ease away from being the center of attention in the tavern before departing.
