The EastEnders heist gang were tonight thrown into chaos as they realised that the money they had stolen as part of Aidan Maguire’s big plan was missing and nowhere to be seen. So who has got to it and where have they taken it? And have Phil Mitchell, Mick Carter and co all been double crossed by Aidan?
Aidan has been dragging his feet in sharing the men’s cuts with them and in the meantime, he has also had a secret meeting with his ex Ciara, who was sharper about what had been going on than he gave her credit for. The money was initially hers so has she found it and taken back what is hers?
Or did Aidan never intend to cough up? Phil, Vincent and now Mick have been badgering for some time to know what has been going on and Aidan eventually assured Phil that it was all in hand.
The men were finally all gathered in Billy’s back office, with the cash hidden under the corpse of one of the clients. Or so they all believed. Billy wasn’t exactly quick in opening up the coffin – had he been instructed by Aidan to stall for time? Or perhaps by his old friend Mel Owen who is rumoured to be involved with Ciara?
Whatever the scenario, there was dismay all round when the coffin was tipped and found to be empty.
But fans will have to wait and see what comes next – and whether the men will be paid their dues.
