EastEnders’ culprit, Gray Atkins, recently killed Shirley Carter’s sister, Tina. The tragedy came just months after he also murdered his long-suffering wife, Chantelle.
But will Gray ever get caught for his crimes? Could Shirley see what Gray did?
Here’s what Entertainment Daily soap expert Charlotte Rodrigues thinks of the plot and her theory about what will happen to Gray.
Will Shirley find out the truth about Gray at EastEnders?
Gray and Chantelle’s act was one that made you realize just how bad domestic abuse can get.
In the past, EastEnders domestic abuse storylines ended with either killing the perpetrator or exiting Albert Square.
Although I was devastated when Chantelle was killed, I think it was necessary to show the reality of the worst case scenario. which happens all too often in real life.

In the past few weeks, Gray and Shirley have built an unlikely friendship after she stopped him from killing himself.
But when Shirley’s sister Tina moved in with Gray, she immediately noticed the signs of an abuser.
Abuse victim Tina was on Gray
Tina had herself been abused by ex-girlfriend Tosh. I really liked that element of the plot – someone who had been abused before discovering the signs of someone else’s abuser.

After Tina confronted Gray, he killed her and disposed of her body. The attorney informed Tina’s family that she had fled, which made sense given that she is the prime suspect in Ian Beale’s attack.
While there are theories that Tina is not dead, it’s worth noting that actress Luisa Bradshaw-White has announced that she is leaving the soap. So there’s a good chance Tina really is is gone forever.
I think Shirley will find out what Gray did to her sister and get revenge.
EastEnder’s favorite Shirley who kills Gray?
Despite Shirley’s bad choices in life, she’s not an idiot.
And I don’t think it will be long before she finds a lead or finds out that Gray killed Tina and Chantelle.
Will she take vengeance and possibly kill him, or will she set him up for prison?
But the question is what will it do? Will she take revenge and kill him or will she put him in jail?
Personally, I’d like to see Gray get caught by the police and go to jail instead of being killed.
Will EastEnders copy Corrie?
On Coronation Street, perpetrator Geoff was recently killed after falling off a roof for the 60th anniversary.
While I’m glad he can’t torture his wife Yasmeen anymore, I can’t help but feel like I wanted to see him, to go to jail and face what he did.
I think EastEnders needs to show victims of domestic violence that they can get justice, and there is a possibility that their perpetrators will go to jail for their crimes.
Hopefully Gray will go to jail. But it looks like we’ll just have to wait and see!
