Ray Kelly was shot dead by Hunter Owen tonight after a brutal twist saw the dodgy copper ‘rise from the dead’.
In Fatal Attraction-esque scenes on EastEnders this evening, Ray jumped up from beneath the mud and grabbed Mel and tried to choke her to death.
However Hunter delivered the final blow by shooting Ray in the chest, killing him once and for all.
Dark scenes saw Hunter kidnapped by Ray after he tried to attack him for throttling mum Mel.
This led Mel to desperately seek them out alone in a wooded area, but brought a gun with her as she demanded to know where he had taken her son.

Ray lied by insisting that a friend of his had taken Hunter – and that if he didn’t call him back her son would be killed.
Mel later discovered the truth and went to find her son, fearing that he had died. But the pair later reunited and discovered that Ray freed himself.
