Dean Wicks continues to cause ructions in the Square after tricking Cindy Beale into letting him buy into the new pie and mash shop.
Although he was never brought to justice for it, Dean raped Linda and his appearance in the Queen Vic on Halloween left her terrified.
With Cindy desperate to make something of herself following her own shock return to Walford with partner Ian Beale, she was horrified to find out that Dean was a rapist.
Realising there's no getting out of the contract they've signed, they resolve to make the best of things and launch Beale's Eels as planned.
On the day of the launch, Dean finds 'rapist' scrawled across the pie shop's window. Blaming Linda, he storms over to the Vic and in front of surprised onlookers, he insists he could sue her for slander!
George Knight and Elaine Peacock are worried that Dean's threats could see Linda losing the pub, and Linda reluctantly agrees to strike a truce with Dean.
A deluded Dean has no intention of letting things drop with Linda, as he blames her for ruining his life with her 'lies'. Worried that the pie and mash is finished before it's even open, Cindy and Ian encourage Dean to back off.
In the Vic, Dean faces George Knight, who is determined not to let Dean win. Pushed to his limit, George launches himself at Dean, who falls down the stairs and lies motionless at the bottom.
Has George killed him?
