EastEnders spoilers: Will Ben Mitchell be slain by Hunter Owen in shock showdown?
As viewers of the BBC soap have seen, Hunter (played by Charlie Winter) has escaped prison and is being kept hidden by Mel Owen (Tamzin Outhwaite).
Meanwhile, Ben (Max Bowden) has been pestering Mel for Lisa Fowler’s (Lucy Benjamin) contact details because he wants to know the whereabouts of Louise Mitchell (Tilly Keeper) and Keanu Taylor (Danny Walters).
But Ben knew Hunter was being held in an abandoned flat by Mel so he used this leverage.
Last night’s episode of EastEnders saw Ben steal keys from Mel which he used to gain access to the flat Hunter is holed up in.
Seeing Ben making his way into the flatten this evening’s episode, Hunter hid out of sight and remained undetected by him although Ben did know he was there.
Mel soon arrived, distracting Ben and he set about blackmailing her once more.
Ben menaced: “You’re going to give me something good, special, cheer me up. Some good news for my old man to wake up to in the morning.
“Or I’m going to go out and drag your boy out by his hair and call the old bill just for the hell of it.
“That’s the kind of way my mind works, you know. So, what you got for me?”
Mel replied: “I haven’t got an address, but I have got a number for Lisa. Just take it and go.”
I need one more night
“See, not that hard is it?’ Ben teased.
Mel pleaded: “Just take it and go, please.”
“Good luck mate, you’re going to need it,” Ben called out to Hunter.
Mel let out a furious scream once Ben had left the flat, and rushed over to Hunter who was slumped on the floor.
“We need to go tonight. Come on, stand up,” Mel urged, pulling her son up from the ground.
However, Hunter winced in pain as he gasped: “I need one more night, I need one more night.”
As his mother embraced him, Hunter glared at the gun visible in Mel’s bag.
With Ben having threatened Hunter and Mel, could he be in the firing line when the youngster gets hold of the weapon?
Spoilers have revealed Hunter will head to The Vic in order to get his revenge on Jack Branning (Scott Maslen).
However, things get out of hand in the busy pub and one person will wind up dead.
While Hunter does have his sights set on Jack he does now have a motive to fire at Ben and seeing as he doesn’t always know when to keep his mouth shut, Ben may regret his actions.
Could he be the one gunned down in the Vic in the climactic scenes?
Although, it isn’t certain that Hunter will be the one to fire the gun, so who knows what could happen in the melee.
EastEnders continues Monday at 8pm on BBC One.
