It’s been a tough year for Phil Mitchell (Steve McFadden) in EastEnders, what with him having had to deal with plenty of money woes, as well as the fact that a potential alliance with Danny Hardcastle (Paul Usher) went belly-up courtesy of Ben (Max Bowden) — not to mention Louise’s (Tilly Keeper) unplanned pregnancy, which has caused him plenty of stress.
Then of course, there’s the fact that Sharon (Letitia Dean) is carrying what he believes to be his child. However, in spite of all this, Phil’s year is about to get a whole lot worse, as he’s brutally attacked and left for dead. Could this be the end for the Walford legend?
In the coming episodes, Phil antagonises quite a few Walford residents. Later, he heads to The Arches but, whilst there, he’s confronted by a mystery assailant, and all hell breaks loose as the two parties engage in a physical brawl.
Phil gives as good as he gets, and pulls out all the stops in an attempt to get the upper hand, but he’s ultimately overpowered by his opponent. After plenty of violence, he is left for dead.
Due to the extent of his injuries, his life hangs in the balance.
Will Phil die as a result of these serious injuries?
With the attacker having seemingly used the element of surprise, his chances of survival aren’t looking good. Having said that, if there’s one thing we know about Phil it’s that he’s resilient, so perhaps he’ll be able to pull through.
Of course, the big question is: who is it that carried out the attack on the Walford legend?
Phil has no shortage of enemies — and he’s certainly rubbed quite a few residents up the wrong way as of late — but who would be capable of carrying out such a brutal attack?
