EastEnders character 'to return from the dead on Christmas Day' in explosive theory

By Charlotte Tutton

EastEnders viewers believe they may have rumbled an explosive Christmas Day episode twist, that could spark the downfall of Gray Atkins.

Killer Gray has claimed three lives in the past year, including his own wife Chantelle Atkins.

After Tina Carter found out what Gray had done, he murdered her too and disposed of her body before making it seem as though she had ran away.

His latest victim was Kush Kazemi, who he pushed in front of a train after growing jealous of his romance with Whitney Dean.

But one of these victims could be about to return and expose Gray, according to viewers who are convinced they never died.

Taking to Twitter, viewers began suggesting Tina survived the attack and has been waiting to return to expose Gray for what he did to her and Chantelle.

Not only that, but they believe she might come back in a major twist during the usually action-packed festive episode of the BBC soap.

One viewer wrote: "I’m convinced Tina isn’t dead. Maybe she’ll return Halloween or Christmas. #EastEnders."

Another tweeted: "RT if you think Tina Carter is coming back at Christmas."

Other viewers believed she was dead, but that a festive twist and the truth about Gray was still on the cards.

They questioned if the big episodes would be the time that his crimes, and all three murders, finally come to light.

One viewer said: "The Carters are going to find out about Tina at Christmas."

Another agreed: "Very good episode hopefully a start to an explosive build up to Christmas."

A third added: "The lead up to the big Christmas story that Tina has been dead months and grey did it now begins."

This was echoed by another viewer who said: "I actually can’t wait for Christmas Day this year just to see the Gray saga unfold."

It comes after EastEnders' Executive Producer Jon Sen told The Mirror that Gray's reign of terror was gradually coming to an end.

He said: "We have obviously got the culmination of, or the building to the culmination of, the Gray storyline. That takes its kind of next chapter.

"Obviously that has been a very long story arc and it has taken many twists and turns. But we are going back to the grass roots of the story really, and taking it back to its origins with a fascinating turn of events for the Atkins family."

EastEnders airs Mondays and Fridays at 8pm, and Tuesdays and Thursdays at 7:30pm on BBC One.
