EastEnders viewers are predicting that next week, as the BBC show goes off air, the soap will go out with a bang. Like for other soaps like Emmerdale, Coronation Street, and Hollyoaks, EastEnders had to avoid filming following the coronavirus pandemic. While the other soaps are not thought to run out of episodes, EastEnders will go off air for a break-with the episodes being filmed before the lockdown of Covid-19 now running out.
Cast and crew will be shooting back towards the end of June, but new episodes are confirmed that will not start airing again until September. This means that the two episodes which will air next week on Monday and Tuesday will be the last in a while, with no new content for months.
Now, with regard to Phil Mitchell and wife Sharon, fans are expecting a major twist to rock the final episode Tuesday. They ‘re clashing right now after he pushed her to pick between him and her baby boy. Christmas saw the discovery that Sharon’s baby was not Phil’s, but that Keanu Taylor’s was her fling.
Six months fast-forward and he’s still struggling to get past the betrayal despite so much happening since. Following the death of her teenage son Dennis in the boat crash, Sharon did not originally want to bring up baby Kayden. Since then, she has changed her mind and Phil is furious about wanting a fresh start without the baby.
He was unable to bring himself up to raise the boy and refused to bind him. After hearing him tell Sharon that she was “done” to him after the latest episode, taking the baby out of his life, viewers are tipping a huge twist on the cards just as the soap is getting ready to go out.
One fan commented: “This kid is Phil … told it right from day one.” Another said: “I think she was doing a paternity check but I count and I don’t think how, so it would end up being Phil.” A third tweeted: “It can almost guarantee Kayden will be Phil ‘s son after all.” A fourth fan echoed this, saying: “Imagine if Kayden turns out to be Phil’s baby?!? All the s**t that’s gone down.”
EastEnders airs Mondays at 8 pm, and Tuesdays at 7:30 pm on BBC One.
