EastEnders fans have been waiting a good while to discover what happened to that missing money and now the truth is out as Sharon Mitchell confessed to Mel Owen that she took it – as she was not prepared to be a trophy wife to her husband Phil.
Mel suspected that Phil had the cash and used Louise to access the house but Sharon intervened and told Mel that she was barking up the wrong tree. Mel managed to get under Sharon’s skin by accusing her of just being a silent, doting wife to Phil but Sharon hinted that she was anything but.
When Dennis came into the room, Mel seized on the topic of motherhood, knowing that Sharon would understand her pain at not knowing what has become of her son Hunter. Ciara Maguire is currently using him as a bargaining tool as she insists that Mel gets to the answer.
Mel kept pushing with Sharon, who started to gain empathy for her visitor, and warned her that if Ciara gets the money back, she would drop it – but if Aidan found out who took it, he would continue by getting revenge on the person who betrayed him and their family.
Sharon told Mel that she had taken the money – and she is by no means merely a sidekick to Phil and won’t deal with years of what he has put her through for nothing. Smugly telling Mel that she took the money from right under her husband’s nose, Sharon came clean about the truth but fans will have to wait and see what Mel will do with this information.
Will she hand Sharon to Ciara? Or will the women form an understanding and work together to solve the situation in another way?
