DC Summerhayes may not be working on the Lucy Beale murder case anymore, but that’s not going to stop the ‘EastEnders’ policewoman from attempting to solve the mystery.
DC Summerhayes has, rightly, been removed from the investigation, but some new discoveries over the festive period leave her certain she knows who the killer is.
She then decides to call the suspect - but does she have the right one?
Fans will have to wait until the episode airs (on 30 December) to see what happens, but even then, it’s unlikely that the killer will be unmasked.
Instead, it’s expected that the murderer’s identity will be revealed during the upcoming live week, which commemorates the soap’s 30th anniversary.
The Beales aren’t the only family in Walford who are in for a rough ride this Christmas, as the Carter family look set to be the focus of plenty of drama.
Tune in on 30 December to see the drama unfold.
