So the main story line in the EastEnders 30th anniversary special is the question of who killed Lucy Beale, played by Hetti Bywater.

This week's show will feature live scenes, and Friday's episode is completely live.

The dramatic climax of Monday's episode was when Max Branning (Jake Wood) said this line LIVE.

Wait a second? What was that? "You killed Lucy" or "Who killed Lucy"?

Immediately everybody got confused.

WAS WHAT WHO KILLED LUCY OR YOU KILLED LUCY

Pretty sure max said "Lauren knows who killed Lucy" not "you killed Lucy" 😥

Dont know if the who/you thing was done on purpose to create suspense or if it was a genuine mistake because it was live 😂 #EastEnders

People even resorted to teletext to find answers.

Max did not say "she knows who killed Lucy"

A spokesperson for the BBC also confirmed that the words at the end of the episode were supposed to be "She knows you killed Lucy."

This tweet sums up the entire of EastEnders Live well.

Now let's be honest, who is watching Eastenders just to see if someone messes up in the live bits?
