EastEnders fans reckon that they’ve solved he mystery of who will die in the upcoming fire, putting forward an intriguing theory, and let’s just say that they could be on to something.
It was confirmed earlier this year that a deadly blaze would rip through Kathy’s cafe, destroying the iconic Albert Square premises and endangering a number of lives in the process.
The scenes in question, which will air in autumn, will prove unmissable and, despite early speculation that Karen Taylor (Lorraine Stanley), who is set to leave the show, will tragically die, fans are now convinced that it will be Theo who will perish – for one very convincing reason in particular.
Theo, as viewers know, has terrorised Stacey Slater (Lacey Turner) for months, leaving her terrified to leave her own home.
Freddie (Bobby Brazier), who recently discovered that his mum Little Mo (Kacey Ainsworth) was raped by his father Graham Foster (Alex McSweeney), was left in shock earlier this week when he returned home to find stalker Theo trying to rape Stacey.
In a bid to protect her, Freddie lashed out, attacking Theo, in scenes which featured striking parallels to the legendary Little Mo showdown which saw her attack her abuser Trevor Morgan (Alex Fern) with an iron.
Freddie’s fate will be revealed in upcoming scenes, as will Theo’s, but if the latter manages to survive the attack, fans reckon that he’s still on borrowed time and will instead die in the fire, suggesting that EastEnders will continue to mirror Little Mo’s story in Stacey’s arc.
Trevor, as fans will recall, perished in a fire.
With the upcoming cafe blaze on the cards, it’s possible that Theo, a man who has made it his mission to destroy Stacey just like Trevor did to Little Mo all those years ago, will perish in the flames.
‘So interesting looking back at the fire of Halloween 2002 and the fire that killed Trevor and setting Little Mo free from her tormentor,’ wrote one fan on X, formerly known as Twitter.
‘Its interesting that Eastenders could parallel this by killing/injuring someone in the upcoming fire that has also been abusive?’
Another shared the same view, writing: ‘i feel like they’re going to take the parallels to the next level and actually kill theo off in the cafe fire like they did with trevor.’

I said this earlier in the spoiler community but:
What if Theo dies in the cafe fire
Cause in today’s episode Freddie hit Theo with an iron
Which is exactly what Lil Mo did to Trevor (IN THE SAME TYPE OF SITUATION)
And then guess who died in a fire…..Trevor
One fan even went so far as to speculate that Theo will set fire to the cafe, much like Trevor did to the house he died in.
But will this ultimately prove to be the case?
Will Theo’s last stand come in the form of the deadly fire at Kathy’s? Or will he still be around at Christmas and perish then, proving to be the Christmas corpse?
