Rapist Dean Wicks left for dead after shock fight in EastEnders | The Sun

SOAP viewers have suspected a huge death twist ahead for Dean Wicks following his bombshell return.

And they may be proven right next week in EastEnders as the rapist is left at death's door after an explosive altercation.

Matt Di Angelo reprised his role in the BBC One soap in time to give viewers, and more particularly Linda Carter, a huge fright for Halloween.

But in the midst of his return, he was revealed to be Cindy Beale's new business partner and they've decided to open a pie and mash shop.

Despite the protests of residents around her, including her two daughters Anna and Gina, Cindy has had no choice but to go ahead with the business.

Coming up next week, it’s launch day for the Beales’ pie and mash shop, but Dean is furious to see the word "rapist" written in graffiti across the window – a reference to a crime he committed during his last stint in Walford.

Certain that it’s down to Linda Carter (Kellie Bright), Dean has a nasty confrontation with her and the Knights in front of a crowd where he states he can sue the landlady for slander.

As regular viewers of the London-based drama will remember, Dean was never convicted for raping Linda, meaning she runs the risk of heavy legal repercussions, despite her really being his victim.

Elaine Peacock (Harriet Thorpe) and George Knight (Colin Salmon) are worried legal action could result in her losing the pub.

After seeking advice from Jack Branning (Scott Maslen), Linda reluctantly goes to strike a truce with Dean.
