EastEnders spoilers: Sharon Mitchell goes on the run as Kathy Beale takes over Queen Vic?

EastEnders: Sharon flirts with Ian at the dinner table

Sharon (played by Letitia Dean) has been on tenterhooks since her husband Ian Beale (Adam Woodyatt) mysteriously disappeared on EastEnders, the same night she tried to murder him. Trying to keep her guilty conscious under wraps, the BBC soap stalwart has let her mother-in-law Kathy Beale (Gillian Taylforth) lead the charge into finding the ruthless businessman. However, as soon as she discovers what her daughter-in-law has been up to, it seems the mother-of-two could be taking over the Queen Vic as her son’s bride might decide to make a run for it.

The drama unravels during Monday’s episode of the weeknight serial drama when Max Branning (Jake Wood) interferes with proceedings.

Noticing Ian wasn’t himself over the Christmas season, the love rat of Walford decided to turn detective to find out what was wrong with his archnemesis.

After overhearing a conversation Sharon was having with the doctors, the father-of-four realised she was poisoning her husband.

This gave Ian the courage to confront his wife, leading to their big showdown and his subsequent exit from the show.

With Kathy fraught with worry over her son’s wellbeing, it seems Max will believe it’s time she knew the truth.

With all parties gathered at the Queen Vic, Max tells his fellow Walford residents Tina Carter (Luisa Bradshaw-White) did not attack Ian in the lead up to Christmas.

Following such an admission, Kathy will be shocked to learn she pointed the finger at the wrong person, which could lead her to interrogate Sharon.

Unable to dig herself out of any more holes, the stalwart might be forced to admit she did poison Ian over the part he played in her son Denny Rickman’s (Bleu Landau) death.

Knowing the police will be after her, the mother-of-two will have no other choice but to flee the Square so she isn’t put behind bars.

Sharon doesn’t deserve the pub

Unfortunately, this would mean there would be no one to keep an eye on the Queen Vic following both Ian and Sharon’s exits.

As the ruthless businessman is the sole owner of the pub, his mother Kathy could take on the day-to-day running of the place.

Owning her own bar in Walford, this would be no mean feat for the feisty matriarch but just how long will her take over last?

Will she have some explaining to do when Ian returns and realises his mother has completely changed the iconic establishment?

Taking to Twitter, some fans have expressed their thoughts on Sharon still being behind the bar of the pub, despite not owning a share in the business.

One wrote: “I hope Max exposes the truth about Ian’s poisoning by Sharon [but] also, get her and Phil [Mitchell] done. She doesn’t deserve the pub @bbceastenders @mrjakedwood #EastEnders.”

Another added: “Boss woman Sharon is not convincing Kathy #EastEnders,” with a third posting: “Sharon and Kathy [are] mothers at war #EastEnders.”

“The way Kathy and Sharon just argue every episode sends me. I love it #EastEnders,” a fourth viewer shared.

Whatever happens, it seems Sharon is also bridging a feud with Max ahead of his exit from the soap in a few weeks time.

As he questions her about his suspicions over Ian’s poisoning and subsequent disappearance, the stalwart lashes out at him.

Knowing he had an affair with her best friend Linda Carter (Kellie Bright), the mother-of-two says the only reason he wants to clear Tina’s name is because he wants to get back in his mistresses good books.

Fed up with trying to help others, will Max leave the Square under the cloud of so much mystery?

EastEnders continues Monday at 8:05pm on BBC One.
