Sharon Mitchell has found herself in a dangerous situation in EastEnders as trusting Mel Owen has backfired in a big way – as Ciara Maguire now knows where the money is. Mel and Sharon planned to head together to Ciara to persuade her that the money was gone – and, in exchange, Mel would accept a cut and hopefully also get her son Hunter back home with her.
As they arrived, Ciara was soon onto them and told them that there would be no bargaining but Sharon tried to up the ante by threatening to have Ciara dealt with. This didn’t stir Ciara one bit and she responded by ringing up Dennis’ number, reiterating that she could get someone to hurt him at any time.
Sharon was left unsettled and, fearing for both Hunter and Dennis, Mel blurted out that Sharon had the money and an amused Ciara told Sharon she was impressed by how long it took her to crack.
However, she then informed her that Mel had told her immediately of her suspicions, like she tells her everything and Sharon discovered that she had been double crossed. Branding Mel a bitch, Sharon was now faced with a decision – does she hand over the money or can she find another way out of this.
And will Ciara take revenge on her?
Many fans may also be left wondering whether this is all part of Mel and Sharon’s act – but there’s only one way to find out…
EastEnders continues on Tuesday 6th February at 7:30pm on BBC One.
