EastEnders hints at Christmas murder victims identify using clues

EastEnders airs special flashforward scene for Christmas 2023

The clip saw six of Walford’s favourite women: Denise Fox (played by Diane Parish), Suki Panesar (Balvinder Sopal), Sharon Watts (Letitia Dean), Stacey Slater (Lacey Turner), Linda Carter (Kellie Bright) and Kathy Beale (Gillian Taylforth) standing, shocked, over a dead body at The Vic.

It wasn’t revealed who the victim was, but EastEnders viewers were given one piece of information: It’s a man.

Sharon knelt down beside the unidentified body and commented: “He’s dead” while the others stood, shocked.

The quick preview left fans desperate for answers as they anticipated a 10-month wait.

However, the BBC soap already has shown some potential clues as to who the victim might be, and a few of them point to Nish Panesar (Navin Chowdhry).

Express.co.uk has rounded up five clues which all point towards the calculating criminal meeting his end on Christmas Day.

1. Nish’s wife Suki is cheating on him

Controlling Nish left his 20-year prison stint just as his wife Suki had realised her feelings for Eve Unwin (Heather Peace).

Since he returned to the Panesar family, he has shown himself to be manipulative and controlling, particularly towards Suki.

Fans know he has a violent streak because he was in prison for murdering a man who became too close to his wife.

This seems like an indication Nish could be killed by the women if he finds out about the affair and attacks Suki, which could lead to a struggle involving the other women who try to help her.

2. Suki’s ominous remark

Last week, fans picked up on the fact Suki had made a statement which could be foreshadowing Nish’s death.

Suki and Eve shared a passionate kiss and Suki finally revealed to Eve she wanted to be with her properly.

She told her: “We are going to get rid of Nish, for good.”

Could the women murder Nish to get him out of their way?

3. The CCTV footage “change”

Another recent episode saw Suki watching recorded footage of her “killing” Ranveer Gulati (Anil Goutam).

Last year, she thought she had killed him after he tried to assault her, but little did she know Ravi Gulati (Aaron Thiara) actually dealt the fatal blow after she had left the scene.

When the attack aired last summer, Suki had been wearing a bright pink dress, but in the revisited CCTV footage she is seen in a blue or purple outfit.

In the flashforward at Christmas, Suki is wearing a blue dress during the fateful scene.

Perhaps the change is a clue that Suki will be heavily involved in the Christmas incident.

4. Kathy Beale’s glare

Some have pointed out there’s a major hint within the flash-forward clip itself that has led some to believe Nish will meet a grisly end in The Vic.

During the scene, Suki looked totally shocked and soon fell into her seat.

During this action, Kathy was staring at Suki suspiciously, as though she was in disbelief about something Suki had done.

5. The knight

In the iconic scene, there was a knight in the background of the clip.

In the episode which ended with he flash-forward, Kathy had made a comment to Linda about protecting friends from danger.

Could one of the other women have killed Nish in a bid to protect Suki from the emotionally abusive man?

EastEnders continues on Monday at 7.30pm on BBC One.
