Who dies in EastEnders?
EastEnders is about to air a shocking gun siege that will see at least one character lose their life.
Hunter Owen – who’s played by Charlie Winter in is armed, dangerous and after revenge on Jack Branning after the former cop shopped him to the police for shooting Ray Kelly earlier this year.
But with several of the Walford residents in the pub along with Jack, there are a few characters who could get caught up in the crossfire.
In last night’s episode fans saw a furious Hunter sneak into the Queen Vic barrel store as he discovered Jack was at the pub. His mum, Mel, was horrified when she realised that Hunter had taken her gun and gone after her ex.
We know that Mel – played by Tamzin Outhwaite – is bowing out of the BBC soap in the near future. Could Hunter shoot his own mum in a tragic twist of fate?

There has also been some fan speculation that Whitney Dean could be the one killed in the shoot-out following her wedding. While it’s not clear at the moment if she and Callum Highway make it up the aisle, the reception is being held at the Vic, putting any one of their guests at risk.
It was also revealed back in July that Hunter would be killed off in his explosive return storyline.
A source told the Daily Star Sunday that Hunter would be murdered shortly after returning to the show.
The insider revealed: “It’s a big decision to kill off a major character, but producers are confident this will be great telly. Hunter’s death is going to rock Albert Square.”
The source added: “There will be plenty to keep viewers hooked. Hunter’s final weeks on Albert Square will be anything but dull.”

The storyline will also see actress Tamzin Outhwaite bow out of the soap two years after making her comeback as Mel Owen with her son Hunter.
Insiders told The Sun Tamzin’s character would be going out with an “explosive final storyline”.
A source said: “Mel is a massive character on the Square so it’s going to be a massive exit.
“You can always expect fireworks where she is involved and this is going to be no different. They’ve started filming the scenes and they will air later this autumn.”
