EastEnders: Who did Kat Moon sleep with? Ray, Jack, Max, Derek or Michael?

So, we have all now seen Kat Moon (Jessie Wallace) commit the uncharacteristic (?) act of adultery on Wednesday night’s EastEnders  followed by a very sheepish and guilt ridden attempt to shoo away her new, and very desperate it would seem, male admirer on Thursday, but just who is it she has embarked on a summer fling with? Unreality TV investigates!

So, loud-mouthed Kat has decided she wants free access to the men’s locker room and made herself a football team out of the staff and regulars of the Queen Vic, so as not to look too obvious.  However the flirtatious nature of the former Slater sister landed her more than oranges at half time when one of the many, many (well, 5 actually, but we like a good build up) men she had been flirting with recently followed her in to the kitchen to have their wicked way with her whilst her faithful and loyal Labrador, I mean husband, Alfie (Shane Ritchie) was passed out drunk upstairs.

And so thus begins the great East End whodunit of the season, as the mystery man involved is said to remain anonymous throughout the summer causing a flurry of excitement and anticipation until the day his identity is revealed (Don’t tut, at least it’s not another flipping murder!)

We have already presented you with the suspects and their reasons as to why or why not they may be hot-plate-hopping with the queen of the Vic (read original article here), but now that the first act is complete, let’s look at the evidence we are left with and see if we can figure out exactly WHO IS SLEEPING WITH KAT!

During Wednesday night’s episode fans of the hit BBC1 soap would have seen Kat relentlessly flirting with all five suspects, Derek, Jack, Max, Ray and Michael, mainly in full view of most of Walford, but what you should have noted were the two acts of flirting and tenderness that were strictly private.

Firstly there was Derek (Jamie Foreman) who shooed away the opposition football team after he caught their manager bad-mouthing Kat (how dare she!) before telling them that no-one messes with ‘The Governor’ (Kat’s new footie title).  Kat seemed very taken back by that but a comment made to Derek before the match “I don’t need a knight in shining armour” could be taken one of two ways: 1) I can look after myself.  Or 2) I prefer a bad boy!

The second tender moment not privy to Alfie’s attention came between Kat and Michael Moon (Steve John Shepherd) when she texted, asking him to come over so that she could give him some baby clothes for his new-born daughter, from his first-born son.  The pair exchanged some touching dialogue, ending the moment with a longer-than-appropriate hug, before being interrupted.

Now, throughout both Wednesday’s and Thursday’s episode the majority of Kat’s attention went to pub chef Ray (Chucky Venn), whom she named man of the match after he very nearly stopped the football team from losing by coming on as a sub for Alfie and scoring.  However, we feel that it was far too much attention for it to be him; we believe that it is the producer of EastEnders intention to lead the viewer’s mind into believing it is Ray by making him the obvious choice.

During Thursday’s episode viewers saw how whoever it was to do the dirty with Kat in the Queen Vic kitchen was very desperate to get in contact with her the next day, repeatedly phoning her and texting her things like ‘PLEASE MEET ME’.  Again, we believe that this has been displayed in a way as to make the viewer think that the person phoning and texting Kat was doing so in order to have another go, a desperate act that only one of the suspects seems likely to attempt.  Derek.  Derek (Jamie Foreman) is well known for being a bit over the top, and having been single since he joined the residents of Albert Square would be the most likely to want a repeat performance of something he hasn’t had for a while.  However, the suspect not only phoned Kat, but text her, making it unlikely to be Derek as his fingers are far too chubby to SMS.

Another way to look at this persistent phoning (of which all suspects were linked to by being shown with their phones directly after one attempt) is that perhaps the person making the call wanted to make sure Kat kept quiet, perhaps someone who had something to lose if the truth came out.  Someone married, perhaps?

Max (Jake Wood) was seen shamelessly flirting with Kat both the day before and during the match, and if it was him then if his fiancée Tanya (Jo Joyner) ever found out then we think he knows that he would have blown his final chance with his long-suffering ex-wife, once and for all!

Another married man in the frame is Michael, however, there isn’t much chance of him panicking over the truth getting out as his wife is currently sat by the side of his near-to-death new born baby daughter (actually, what on earth was he doing at the pub in the first place?), and let’s face it, no one in the pub is on texting terms with his wife Janine (Charlie Brooke).

But if it was Michael and he was phoning to try and rekindle the relationship he once had with his wife’s cousin then it would certainly explain Alfie’s face when he answered the phone to whoever it was on Thursday night.

On Thursday night, after rejecting yet another phone call from ‘the mystery man’ the pub phone immediately rang.  Alfie answered it with barely a grunt, then turned to Kat and said “It’s your favourite fella, yeah in his dreams” before handing the receiver to his wife.  Kat makes it very clear that the caller is her new man, and the audience were left believing that it was a member of the football team due to the ‘favourite fella’ title pronounced, and in particular would have linked it to man of the match, Ray.

But, what in that scene actually confirmed that ‘favourite fella’ was the term used by the caller to announce himself to Alfie?  If they had then of course that would indeed link them to the football team because of the day’s events, and in particular Ray, but when during every scene including Ray that night he was seen in or around the pub, surely Alfie would have enquired as to why he was phoning Kat from the kitchen, not to mention answering the phone with a bit more of the friendly Moon banter, which would go for every other suspect, except one!

Let’s suppose that the caller wasn’t the one to use the words “favourite fella” at all, let’s suppose that Alfie, who remember answered with a grunt, was being sarcastic when handing over the phone, as if it was actually Kat’s least favourite person she was about to speak to.  Now cast your mind back to the tender moment between Kat and Michael that Alfie wasn’t aware of.  As far as Alfie is aware his wife despises Michael after the whole recent incident with the money.

So, based on all the evidence, we at Unreality TV believe that Kat’s ‘mystery man’ is in fact….MICHAEL MOON!

  2. Janine on July 7, 2012 at 2:39 pm

    bored bored bored with same boring storylines. Who cares anymore who Kat sleeps with. It’s getting really boring. Need better storylines. Puttin me off whole programme!

  3. EddieD on July 7, 2012 at 4:37 pm

    It’s Max Branning… He was missing all through Friday’s show… Always texting Kat Moon.

  4. Emma on July 7, 2012 at 7:13 pm

    Michael moon i think!

  5. Louise on July 9, 2012 at 2:48 pm

    Maybe it was actually Alfie but she was too cross eyed to realise it

  6. marty on July 9, 2012 at 11:39 pm

    one of the 3 brannings i reckon..i paused it as the person was walking in the kitchen and the shaddow of the man was small and stout saying that they have a couple of different endings.

  7. aidan on July 10, 2012 at 12:47 am

    she had the lot the greedy bugger

  8. ??? on July 10, 2012 at 2:07 am

    i think its either jack ,derek or ray i think its ray because alfie used the word favorite fella and ray got the award 4 best player and a big story line cuz kat and kim r best friends 😀 and i think it is jack cuz he is the least ovbious one and he dnt have a girl friend and ders derek that could lead to a big story line 😛 but just look out 4 the most ovbious one and the least ovbious one

  9. ? on July 10, 2012 at 9:29 am

    Has anyone realised that up above them talking about it, they haven’t mentioned Jack?

  10. ld21 on July 10, 2012 at 12:26 pm

    No one’s talking about Jack… maybe that’s what the writers want and it is actually him! No attention has been paid to him but he did give Kat a couple of looks during the football episodes. And he has been lonely since Ronnie left… Ray far too obvious. The writers are much more clever than that I think. Plus, I think max is trying to mend his ways and has done enough dirty deeds for now. And why would you bother repeating a Stacey-like storyline?~
    Michael does what Michael wants, but I think he is starting to realise the wrongs of his ways and make an effort with Janine – I dont think he has the time for Kat in THAT way.
    And Derek? Surely not. He may be a bad boy, but, just no!

  11. Kimmeh on July 10, 2012 at 4:48 pm

    I’m partially thinking it’s Jack for many reasons, especially in that episode where he came off the bus to get that girls number I believe and Kat looked over pretty jelous. However I’m also thinking Max. Tanya is planning on leaving the show so they need to make a storyline to write her out now they could make one with Derek involved without bringing in the whole ‘Kat affair’ but I think they could do a lot with it. 🙂

    I hear she recieves a key from her mystery man next week also apparently Alfie has ‘demoted’ Jack as team captain and been replaced by Billy.

    Maybe the key could be a car key to get out of Walford making it more likely to be Max.

  12. tommy ryan on July 10, 2012 at 11:17 pm

    i think it’s Dot and Jim tag teaming

  13. sally on July 11, 2012 at 7:38 am

  15. carla on July 11, 2012 at 1:29 pm

    come on its kat we are talking about she has probly slept with them all, what dose it matter who she slept with, alfie dont care he just lets her do it again and again because he so loved up and thinks that he can ignor it. kat looks and feels guilty but whats the point, once this one night stand is over she will have another, and probably get pregnant again, she probs wont no whose the next baby is. i do have to say though she has some lovley clothes 😀

  24. Toni Kitson on August 5, 2012 at 5:57 pm

    its a boring story line, why on earth is Kat Slater all of a sudden gods gift tomen??!!!!! It will most likely be someone who would never have cheated…. and as a fan of the show for the last 25 years,i watch evry week,, it cant b max as he wouldnt do that to tanya, also he said no to roxy not so long ago, jack is way to obvious and wouldnt be shocking, derek is to dirty and sleezy and not to love struck desperate type,, he wouldnt text her all the time, neither would michael, and i dont think it wud be him while his daughter is in hospital and ray, its to ovious he also has to many morals to go cheating…. so if i had to say id say the young moon brother!!!

  25. hhgf on September 11, 2012 at 8:26 pm
