EastEnders: Shirley is grieving for Mick

EastEnders viewers will know that Christmas Day (Sunday December 25, 2022) was an explosive one.

The truth finally came out about Janine after Jada and Sharon interrupted Christmas Dinner over at The Vic.

Scarlett then told Linda that she wasn’t the one who caused the crash, Janine did.

Janine said that Scarlett was lying and needed a psychiatrist.

Mick believed Scarlett and was desperate to call the police on his wife.

Janine grabbed her passport and jumped in the car, trying to go on the run.

Mick and Linda chased her down.

Soon enough, Linda jumped into Janine’s car and tried to grab the steering wheel.

The car ended up catapulting off a cliff and sinking into river.

Mick swam into the water and saved Janine for the baby’s sake.

Linda managed to free herself but Mick thought that she was still trapped in the car and swam after her.

He never came back up and the emergency services were called but failed to find him.

Shirley and Linda presumed that Mick was dead and are now grieving the loss.
