Walford could be set to be rocked by another tragedy as a youngster falls victim to a gang once more – and Sharon Mitchell fears that her son Denny is dead. EastEnders fans have seen Denny being tormented by a gang of youths for some time and even after Keanu Taylor stands up to them, they persist in causing trouble.
With Sharon doing her best to keep Denny in check, she overhears him bragging about how lenient she is and so she passes the task of disciplining him over to Phil. Phil brings him to the Arches for the day but Denny is still up to no good and he deliberately winds up Stix from the gang.
Phil tells Denny that he is fed up of his spoilt behaviour and sets him the task of fixing Sharons jewellery box as penance. Dennis is annoyed but Phil remains firm and things look like theyre getting back on track.
However, Phil then leaves Denny to lock up and when he is alone in the Arches, the gang swoop in and corner him and when Sharon worries about where he is, she heads over to the Arches.
She is horrified to find the place empty with only Dennis jacket left in the pit. Where has he gone – and is the community set to get more horrific news?
One to watch: Friday 17th August at 8pm on BBC One.
