The killer was unmasked after a week of live episodes. Spoilers, obviously.

LAST NIGHT WAS the big night in Eastenders’ “week of revelations”, with the culmination of the ten month-long Lucy Beale murder storyline. (It even managed to bump Taoiseach Enda Kenny from his scheduled live TV interview.)

Yes, Lucy’s killer was finally revealed, after numerous twists, turns and funny line fluffs.

People were shocked, to say the least.

So – who’s the murderer? Did you guess?


Er… it was 11-year-old Bobby Beale, Lucy’s step-brother. A pretty decent shocker, no?

In ultimate creepy child-mode, Bobby grips a jewellery box (presumably the murder weapon) and tells a devastated Jane:

Whatever she says, she started it. She made everyone unhappy.

Shudder. Here’s how Twitter reacted to the twist.

People were mostly unimpressed

The ‘Damien from The Omen’ comparisons were made

Lots of people came out with the inevitable Maggie Simpson joke

And the Ian Beale cryface got a good airing

Well – what do we all think? Share your reactions in the comments.
