Alfie linked to EastEnders Christmas mur:der as fans spot major clue

Ever since EastEnders aired its epic flash-forward episode last month, we have been jotting down every little clue we find, and it appears that now we may have another one to add to the list, which links Alfie Moon (Shane Richie) to the mur:der.

If you’ve been living under a rock for the past few weeks, let us update you on what you’ve missed.

Back in February, EastEnders aired its first ever flash-forward scene, amid an episode which saw six of Walford’s most iconic women stage a lock in at the Queen Vic.

‘The Six’, as they are now affectionately called, include Linda Carter (Kellie Bright), Suki Panesar (Balvinder Sopal), Sharon Watts (Letitia Dean), Kathy Beale (Gillian Taylforth), Denise Fox (Diane Parish) and Stacey Slater (Lacey Turner).

The flash-forward itself gave us a glimpse into Christmas 2023, and what it would have in store for these beloved characters.

Viewers were left stunned as the camera panned to unidentifiable body lying on the floor, with Sharon declaring that ‘he’ was de:ad.

The identity of the vic:tim has remained a mystery, and excited viewers have been gathering clues left right and centre ever since.

The most recent clue popped up in the latest episode of EastEnders, which aired on March 23.

Many will know that Stacey has been struggling with the cost of living crisis, which forced her to borrow money from a loan shark, who has since been not so kindly demanding it back.

Loan shark Shiv approached Stacey’s bap van demanding £200 which Stacey didn’t have.

However, family friend Alfie swept in with the cash, having hosted a wedding dress sale. (Don’t even get us started on the clues in that.)

Satisfied, Shiv made a comment which fans were quick to jump on, referring to Alfie as Stacey’s ‘knight in shining armour’.

Now, if you’re following this case as closely as we are, then we’ll forgive you for gasping at that.

The imagery of a ‘knight in shining armour’ has been at the forefront of many fan theories, ever since it made an appearance in the flash-forward scene.

As Sharon crouched over the body, a shot of the pub revealed that it was decked out to the nines with Christmas decorations, and a seemingly out of place suit of armour.

However, after further analysis, it is widely believed that that suit of armour has been very strategically placed, and behind Stacey, no less.

With Shiv referring to Alfie as Stacey’s ‘knight in shining armour’, could he be onto something?

EastEnders boss Chris Clenshaw further got fans fired up by using the phrase in an interview immediately after the episode, and again several days later in an interview with ITV’s Loose Women.

‘Linda’s world has been thrown upside down by seeing a photo of Shirley with Dean, but she’s forced to focus on who her new business partner will be or face losing her home. Both Sharon and Nish are hoping to get the keys to the castle, but her knight in shining armour may not be who you think.’ He said.

We have seen Alfie come to Linda’s rescue in the past, opening up the Queen Vic when she felt unable to after losing childhood sweetheart Mick.

With both the ‘knight in shining armour’ and Alfie having direct connections to Stacey and Linda, we feel like we may be onto something here…

We don’t know about you, but we can certainly imagine Alfie wearing cufflinks like that…
