What will Sharon do about Bobby? Is Les transgender? That scene with Kathy and Ben at the Arches doorway!


Tuesday night's tense and dramatic scenes in Eastenders had fans all aflutter as Kathy arrived back on the Square and Sharon (Letitia Dean) found out the truth about Bobby from a distraught and broken Jane.

The episode ended on a cliffhanger of Grand Canyon proportions as the fate of the entire Beale family lies in Sharon's hands after she saw a message from Cindy revealing Lucy's killer.

Questioning Jane about her discovery, she was shocked to learn it was true as Jane struggled to lie and tied herself up in knots, revealing too much about the case.

Sharon now faces a dilemma - does she support Ian and Jane in keeping Bobby safe or does she shop him in to save Max Branning who is currently awaiting trial for the crime?

Sharon also faces the possibility that Phil is having an affair as she sees texts to K on his phone.

Of course she's unaware that Phil (Steve McFadden) has agreed to help ex-wife Kathy (Gillian Taylforth) to make her return to the Square and come clean over her fake death.

The episode posed many more questions for fans, however.  While some were confused over the mechanics of Kathy's return, others praised the scenes with Les and Pam and wonder if Les is in fact transgender.

There were even predictions about loose plot ends which may return at Christmas.  Check out fan reaction here:
