EastEnders fans are worried that Gray Atkins will strike again and kill Kush Kazemi ahead of his departure from Walford.
After tuning into Thursday’s episode of the BBC soap, viewers predicted that Kush (Davood Ghadami) and his fiancée Whitney Dean (Shona McGarty) will not get the happily ever after they’re hoping for.
The latest episode ended with Kush surprising Whitney at home and telling her they need to leave Albert Square – and the country – as soon as possible.
Kush looked panicked as he admitted he would no longer be going to prison because he decided to strike a deal with the police and grass on the Mitchell family, after initially agreeing to a deal with Phil and his son Ben.
Whitney looked delighted as she realised they could finally be together minus a prison sentence, but her expression soon changed as Kush told her they needed to flee immediately.
EastEnders fans were quick to predict a rather grisly end for Kush – but not at the hands of Phil or Ben Mitchell, but Gray instead.
Gray is insanely jealous of Whitney’s relationship with Kush and was not happy when he found out they were engaged.
“I recon gray is gonna get Kush and then he won’t even able to give evidence and thus, everyone will go free 🙁 #EastEnders (sic),” one person tweeted.
Another viewer posted: “Obviously Phil and Ben will face no consequences because they never do, but at least Kush stood up to them before Gray kills him. #EastEnders.”
A third added: “So gray is clearly going to kill kush and blame it on the Mitchell’s because obviously now they have a clear vendetta against him…. F**K #EastEnders #Ballum.”
A fourth person tweeted: “What’s the betting Gray will end up killing Kush and Whitney will just believe he’s gone on the run alone. Tina all over again. #eastenders.”
A fifth fan claimed they had correctly guessed how Kush would be bowing out: “I knew Kush would be killed and this gives Gray the perfect person to frame.”
And another person simply wrote: “Gray has the reason to pin the brutal murder of Kush on the Mitchell’s #eastenders.”
It was confirmed last year that 38-year-old actor Davood would be leaving EastEnders after playing the role of Kush since 2014.
EastEnders airs Mondays and Fridays at 8pm, and Tuesdays and Thursdays at 7:30pm on BBC One.
