EastEnders: Derek Brannning will reveal Sharon’s secret to her son Denny & Kat Moon’s lover about to be revealed!

by Lynn Connolly

In forthcoming episodes of EastEnders, not only are we about to learn the identity of Kat Moon’s lover – finally – but we’ll also see proof, were it needed, that Derek Branning (Jamie Foreman) is just plain wicked…

More on Kat (Jessie Wallace) and her lover in a moment, but first, Derek shows that he’s a thoroughly heartless git when he reveals, within earshot of Sharon’s son Dennis, that his dad, Dennis Snr., was murdered.

We have of course seen that Sharon (Letitia Dean) has fabricated a far more palatable story for how Denny’s dad died, telling her son that he was in the army and that he died a hero after saving several lives.

The truth is of course a rather sordid tale, given that Dennis – who was played by the gorgeous Nigel Harman – was stabbed to death in the street outside the Queen Vic by one of Johnny Allen’s henchman…

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

So when little Denny hears Derek talking about his father’s murder, he of course quizzes his mum Sharon about what he said, and Sharon is then left with a dilemma; flee Walford so that she can carry on the lie, or stay put and tell her son the truth.

Well, whichever way it goes, it’s going to tempt Sharon to seek solace in painkillers again as he addiction rears its ugly head!

Here’s a reminder of poor Dennis breathing his last…

Back now to the fact that Kat Moon’s lover is about to be revealed, and my life, it’s been a long time coming hasn’t it?

However, to herald the climax to the story, EastEnders bosses have released a new picture of the three remaining suspects, Jack (Scott Maslen) Max (Jake Wood) and of course Derek Branning…

So which of the brothers do you reckon it’ll turn out to be?
