EastEnders: Marc Elliott explains why Syed does a runner on his wedding day!
As fans of EastEnders will of course know, Syed Masood and Christian Clarke (John Partridge) are tying the know in a civil ceremony in an upcoming episode, however, it seems that no sooner does Syed get that ring on his finger than he does a runner!
He said, “He just rocks up. Syed’s terrified, worried what he’s doing there. It all gets too much for him…
“He’s getting the Mr & Mr quiz questions wrong and Roxy’s taking the p**s.
“Syed needs a moment to breathe and, as he leaves, Danny follows him.”
Marc explained that Syed and Danny go to the Argee Bhajee, where things take a turn for the worse…
He said, “In the Argee Bhajee – and there’s a lot of sexual tension between them.
“Danny tells Syed not to marry Christian and suggests he start a life with him instead. He also tells him that he’s lost Syed’s money because the investment fell through.
“As Danny goes to kiss Syed, Masood walks in!”
Marc went on to say that Danny then has something shocking to say…
He explained, “[Danny] says that Syed clearly wanted to be caught out, and then Syed punches him.”
Of course, none of that drama is helping Syed to make up his mind whether he can go through with the wedding to Christian.
Marc continued, “He doesn’t know what he wants. Should he go for a penthouse on the Riviera and a life with Danny?
“Or should he choose a flat with his husband next to his parents’?
“Christian is his true love, but he thinks the grass might be greener.”
Marc revealed that right before the ceremony, Syed confesses his financial woes to Christian, but he doesn’t tell him that he has feelings for Danny.
He said, “He’s filled with guilt over what happened with Danny and the money.
“He only tells Christian about the money, but Masood lets slip about the kiss. Christian’s understanding.
“He says they can sort out the financial woes and he doesn’t care about the kiss because he knows that Syed loves him and it was just a mistake.
“He gives Syed an ultimatum: he tells him he’ll be waiting at the Argee Bhajee, where they’re having their civil partnership ceremony, but Syed should only turn up if he really loves him.”
Syed does turn up, and the wedding goes ahead, but the drama doesn’t end there!
Marc said, “At the end of the ceremony, the bailiffs turn up and announce that the restaurant owes thousands of pounds.
“Zainab blames Tamwar, but Christian knows Syed took the money. However, when he turns round, Syed’s done a runner!”
Finally, when asked, “Is this Syed’s exit?” Marc said, “I can’t say. You won’t know until the last minute what is to become of him or him and Christian…”
