EastEnders didn’t just confirm the truth about Keanu Taylor’s Christmas Day death in the special flashback episode on New Year’s Day, as other betrayals also came to light.
The one-off episode went back to the moment Martin Fowler appeared to shoot dead Keanu for the Mitchells – before confirming he was in fact still alive in a cover-up plot.
But the other big question still hanging after Christmas was the identity of the person who had attempted to steal £5,000 from Dot Cotton’s bank account.
Fingers had pointed to Sonia Fowler’s ex-husband Martin after his recent behaviour, but he was not the real culprit in a twist of events.
It was Dot’s granddaughter (in law) Sonia who had tried to steal the money.
She was seen covering her tracks, signing out of Dot’s online banking account having feigned innocence hours earlier.
Sonia wept, as she went on to delete her entire web history to prevent anyone discovering the truth.
But viewers were convinced her actions would come back to haunt her after a crucial mistake.
Seconds after Sonia clicked delete on her web browsing history, she closed her laptop, pulling the lid down.
Viewers quickly tweeted that this action would prevent her history from being erased, as her laptop would have gone on standby mode before the task was completed.
While it’s likely the initial history would now be gone, fans claimed she was too quick in closing the device, therefore setting herself up and keeping some of the search history on the laptop.
Fans took to Twitter to predict this mistake, and the fact any transaction history could possibly be traced by the bank, would be Sonia’s downfall.
One viewer said: “When you close the laptop when deleting history it doesn’t delete! This one is gonna come back to bite her!”
Another agreed: “The history never deletes.”
EastEnders airs Mondays and Fridays at 8pm, and Tuesdays and Thursdays at 7:30pm on BBC One.
