EastEnders viewers believe they’ve rumbled the unique way Danny Dyer’s character, Mick Carter, will make a shocking return during next week’s Christmas muder episode
Fans of BBC EastEnders are certain they know just how Mick Carter will make his momentous comeback to Albert Square.
There are rumors that the soap icon would make a breathtaking comeback to the show in time for the much awaited Christmas episode. The last time we saw the guy, he was running to the ocean on Christmas Day, possibly drowning to save Linda Carter.
After a year, viewers are now certain that Danny Dyer’s character will briefly reappear on the soap opera in a flashback scene. Because the actor has stated that he has no interest in returning to the soap opera, viewers contend that the flashback is much more realistic than a full-fledged return.
“With this whole storyline I wouldn’t be surprised if micks ‘return’ is more of a flashback thing, I don’t think he will be returning,” said one fan. “I don’t see Danny Dyer reprising this role any time soon sadly, but I think a flashback is such a good way to give the people what they want and bring him back on Christmas,” a second penned. While a third added: “One year since Mick’s death can’t believe it. I think a flashback would be epic!! I don’t think he’s coming back for real.”
Mick did make a “return” on Thursday’s episode (December 21) when Linda received a text message claiming to be from him. But fans are convinced it’s evil Dean that is behind the text. “ WHAT?!!?? MICK!!!??!!??? SORRY has to be Dean messing with Linda,” said one fan. Another agreed: “DEAN IS PURE SCUM FOR SENDING LINDA A FAKE TEXT FROM ‘MICK’,” while I a third penned: “Nah Dean messaged pretending to be Mick with that text.”
In one of the most unexpected parting sequences, Mick attempted to save Linda by jumping off a cliff, but after a confrontation with his new partner Janine Butcher, he “drowned” in the sea. Police believed Mick had passed away after a few weeks, but they never discovered a body.
Since Cindy Beale, who was thought to be dead years ago, made a stunning comeback earlier this year as the enigmatic Rose Knight, there has been a great deal of discussion over whether Mick is genuinely alive someplace. Danny responded, “Anything is possible,” when asked about the possibilities. To what place may he have gone? He is not a good swimmer. It seemed a little strange to me.”
