Dot Cotton could be in "mortal danger" after she took in Stuart Highway in a shocking turn of events.
After Mick Carter was released from prison, it was considered to be a matter of time before he killed Stuart, the man who put him there for a crime Mick did not commit.
However, in the end, Mick was released and Stuart vanished from our screens, with no answer about what had actually happened to the villain.
It was revealed when Stuart arrived, and was found in Dot’s home tucking into a cup of tea – similarly to when the seemingly dead Pat Phelan turned up in an Irish bed and breakfast.
Now, fans are concerned Stuart may have some tricks up his sleeve, and it may be Dot that gets caught up in the crossfire and he and Mick go head to head once and for all.

A third added: "Imagine Stuart kills Dot on Christmas Day! # EastEnders"
Another suggested: "Is Stuart gonna kill Dot?! # Eastenders"
Earlier this week, fans saw Mick beat Stuart close to death, as he drove him out to a warehouse with a pipe in hand, and beat him absolutely senseless.

Mick then threw Stuart into the boot of his car – which is what his sister Tina has suggestedStuart did to her when they were young, and the whole thing shocked fans as they saw Mick take what they believed was his ultimate revenge.
But perhaps Mick didn’t finish him off quite as he thought.
EastEnders airs on Christmas Day at 9.15pm on BBC1.
