EastEnders viewers were convinced they had ‘missed an episode’ after watching tonight’s show.
Soap fans had waited four days to find out whether Hunter Owen was still alive following Friday’s dramatic ending.
The teenager pulled out the gun he had used to murder Ray Kelly with and pressed it up against his chin.
Just as emotional Mel smashed some glass – a worrying gun shot rang out from upstairs.
Concerned viewers feared Hunter had killed himself and nervously waited for answers.

But they were left bitterly disappointed when neither Hunter or Mel appeared in the episode.
Instead viewers watched as Alfie Moon made a shock exit with baby Cherry.
With Monday’s helping scrapped in favour of FA cup football, EastEnders fans questioned whether an episode had been missed.

Taking to Twitter to voice their displeasure, one viewer asked: "So a gunshot goes off and no follow up? What a crock…Did that ep with Hunter & Mel even happen?"
Another added: "While we are all yawning over the baby Cherry story poor hunter could have been shot? Have I missed an episode?"
"Can’t believe they didn’t go back to hunter scene r we just sposed to forget that happened," said a third.
A fourth agreed: "There was no EastEnders yesterday, so what happens to hunter & Mel, they most of missed a episode out"
