After months and months of being kept in the dark we’re FINALLY going to find out who killed Lucy Beale during this week’s live 30th anniversary EastEnders extravaganza, and it’s going to be glorious.
With live inserts, a flashback episode and the big reveal all squeezed into just four days of TV, we predict one hectic and emotional roller-coaster of a ride into the weekend.
Yes, we know that we need to get a life.
While we’re still struggling to get our heads around the logistics of the #EELive week, we reckon we’ve just about got it sussed, so here’s a run-down of EVERYTHING you need to know.
1. WHEN AND WHERE
With no episode on Monday, there will be five episodes packed into four consecutive days, plus a live backstage episode on Friday.
Tune into BBC One, pour yourself a large G&T and open a packet of pork scratchings. Pat would have wanted it that way.
How to watch EastEnders on TV and online:
Tuesday: 7.30-8.00pm (with live inserts)
Wednesday: 8.00-8.30pm (with live inserts)
Thursday: 7.30-8.30pm (with live inserts) PLUS 9.30-10pm (Flashback episode)
Friday: 8.00-8.30pm (fully live episode) PLUS 8.30pm (live backstage, with a switchover to BBC Three at 9pm)
And if you miss it (which you obviously won’t) you can watch it on BBC iPlayer.
As well as the majority of the current cast, there will be a few old faces putting in an appearance for the landmark anniversary. These will include Tanya Cross, Christian Clarke and Peggy Mitchell.
We reckon there will be fireworks when Babs meets Danny Dyer for the first time. Fingers crossed for a good old cockney showdown (or alternatively, a knees-up).
With Lauren already in the know as to who the killer is, the story will unfold over a number of live scenes, before everything is revealed during Thursday’s flashback episode, which will follow Lucy’s last movements.
With the big reveal at the end of Thursday night’s episode (you don’t want to miss that one), Friday’s fully live episode will deal with the aftermath.
Zoe Ball will then be backstage on the EastEnders set to chat with the cast straight after the action unfolds.
The EastEnders cast are apparently still in the dark about who Lucy’s killer is, and will only find out which one of them it is half and hour before going live.
We have no idea what’s going to happen, but it’s sure as heck going to be good TV.
