EastEnders fans are in uproar as it appears two major characters could be killed off after they were seen being dragged out of Kathy’s cafe unconscious next to firefighters
After witnessing Bobby and Peter Beale being pulled unconscious from a raging inferno at Kathy’s Café, viewers of EastEnders fear that two important characters may be eliminated.
In the episode that aired on Thursday, November 9, Rocky set a fire and tampered with the electrics before going to Walford East to meet Kathy. When a terrified Bobby noticed the fire inside the café was raging, he attempted to put it out, but it erupted, trapping Bobby inside where he is now comatose.
Rocky and Peter hurried to help Bobby as soon as they heard about the fire from Kathy and Rocky. All three of them were hurt when the roof fell, and Kathy informed Rocky that Bobby and Peter were in the intensive care unit when he awoke in the hospital.
In addition, Peter was ventilated and in a horrible state. Fans now worry that at least one of the comparatively recent and endearing Walford inhabitants will die in the BBC soap opera.
One person posted on X, saying, “I have a terrible feeling that Peter might not live.” I do hope that this does not occur. Since Lauren had lost Abi, she is unable to lose Peter as well. One more person concurred: “Peter is virtually dead on ventilation chai. Bobby is still unidentified. Rocky has serious blood on his hands.
A third said: “If Peter or Bobby die, I will riot.,” and a fourth viewer guessed: “OMG Peter. Dies/get seriously f***ing injured desperately tryna save Bobby?” as a fifth wrote: “Wait… all the spoilers say Cindy is heartbroken after the fire, what if Peter dies saving Bobby.”
Actor Brian Conley, who plays Rocky Cotton has paid an emotional tribute to his co-star ahead of his confirmed exit. The actor has said he is sad to be leaving his on-screen wife Gillian Taylforth, who plays Kathy Cotton, behind.
The duo have played on-screen partners for the past two years and their characters got married back in July. However, recently on the programme, their marriage hasn’t been going too well due to Rocky’s gambling addiction.
In an attempt to solve his debt issues, he set the local café on fire to try and claim on the insuranc and pay back Nish. He told OK! “It was a tough decision but it is true that I am going, I made it for many reasons. It was tough as they are such a wonderful crowd in front and behind the cameras and I have loved my three years there.”
