Everyone Is Outraged That "EastEnders" Exposed Bobby As Lucy Beale's Killer

It was TEN MONTHS of our goddamn lives.

Posted on

EastEnders have been celebrating their 30th anniversary this week with a string of live episodes which culminated in the big reveal of just who killed Lucy Beale.

BBC

The storyline has been running for TEN MONTHS, with a group of 14 initial suspects which has been whittled down to 11 over the past few weeks.

Needless to say, EastEnders fans went into absolute meltdown after the show ended.

People were quick to draw attention to the fact that AT NO POINT WAS BOBBY A SUSPECT.

twists are fine, and wonderful, and expected. But don't fuck off loyal viewers by saying the killer is someone you CONFIRMED wasn't involved

feeling short-changed. TERRIBLE. Awful that licence payers money was encouraged to bet on someone not a confirmed suspect. #EastEnders

However, EastEnders executive producer Dominic Treadwell-Collins has tweeted this which kind of shuts down any of those theories.

#EELive tonight at 2000hrs. Bobby killed Lucy. But there is so much more to the story...
