‘EastEnders’ gripped the nation on Thursday night, as TV viewers found out who killed Lucy Beale, then um, found out again when it turned out Jane Beale wasn’t the killer after all.
Elsewhere in the Square, there were plenty of other dramatic events too, and unsurprisingly, some of them have captured the imaginations of Twitter users.
While some of us were unable to type anything that wasn’t “KATHY BEALE??”, a number of Twitter users spent their time coming up with a fair few topical jokes and memes.
Firstly, Dot Cotton being taken away in a police car, after confessing to murder, was obviously a fantastic springboard for some good old-fashioned fun…

If someone hasn't made a Dot Cotton mixtape cover called 'Prison Barz' or something by the morning, I will have lost faith in the internet— Dean Meredith (@DeanJM1) February 19, 2015
Then, then was the shock twist screened in the flashback episode, as fans discovered that Lucy’s little brother Bobby is a killer…

Tomorrow’s ‘EastEnders’ will pick up where the first of Thursday’s episodes left off, as Ian Beale confronts Jane, believing she killed Lucy.
The whole episode will be live, so let’s just hope that everyone can remember the character names, eh?
