EastEnders spoilers: ‘Dead’ Nish Panesar set to take the blame for Keanu Taylor’s murder

There is only one possible outcome for The Six’s plan: weeping. After all, this is EastEnders!

Following her murder of Keanu Taylor (Danny Walters), Linda Carter (Kellie Bright) is receiving assistance from her partners in disposing of her corpse.

One of the women in the now-iconic group is Sharon Watts (Letitia Dean), who was being throttled by Keanu just moments before Linda came to his aid and fatally stabbed him.

Kathy Beale (Gillian Taylforth), who was primarily in favour of calling the police—a decision that was becoming less and less practical.

No stranger to a Christmas killing in the Queen Vic is Stacey Slater (Lacey Turner).

Balvinder Sopal’s character Suki Panesar was the one to seize the most initiative and attempt to use cover tales and alibis to try and resolve the situation.

And, of course, Denise Fox (Diane Parish), who, having smacked an angry Nish Panesar (Navin Chowdhry) over the head with a bottle, might still turn into a killer herself.

The women had plotted to force Nish into the Vic and make him abandon his campaign of violence against Suki.

He reacted angrily, seizing Suki and forcing Denise to fight him off after he was gunned down by them.

At first, it appeared as though Keanu had died, but shortly after his demise, a tiny glimmer of life appeared in him.

Now that his life is in jeopardy, the women are eager to make him the victim of their own misfortune.

Denise watched over the shady businessman while the others went to dispose of Keanu’s body. Denise implored him not to die since he’s in a terrible place.

Suki took the lead in creating a narrative to explain Keanu’s disappearance, implying that he and Nish engaged in a fight to end them all.

Their plan appears to be for Nish to answer the phone, meaning that it will be six against one.

Remember that he was only recently freed from prison after being charged with the murder of Eve Unwin, who has since returned (Heather Peace).

And the death of a purported love rival was the only reason he was incarcerated in the first place.

Therefore, the hat definitely fits, but the plot has many flaws and has the potential to fall apart at any time.

Following this entire ordeal, the six women now have to face hurdles individually and collectively to maintain their composure.

Can they remain composed and follow the plan? Or are they on the verge of death?

“So, there’s obviously huge consequences playing into next year from the fallout of what happens at Christmas,” EastEnders CEO Chris Clenshaw exclusively told Metro.co.uk.

We have some really big plans for 2024. Our goal is to reach the 40th anniversary. Obviously, because it will be more than a year away, I won’t reveal too much about our plans.

“I think I can assure you that there will be a grand celebration for the show.”

It appears that those who thought Christmas Day marked the conclusion of this highly anticipated plot may need to think twice.

This is just the beginning—a very dramatic one at that.
