EastEnders fans watched on as Keegan (played by Zack Morris) attempted to get rid of his bloodied clothes after slashing one of the gang members in last night’s episode.
As he was about to leave his house to dispose of his clothes, Carmel (Bonnie Langford) was at the door and forced him back inside.
It was at this point when Carmel revealed Keegan had “murdered” the gang member, much to Keegan’s horror.
Not only that, Carmel had the ”evidence” – a knife covered in blood.
However, it’s now feared Carmel could wrongly be put in the frame after being spotted at the scene of the crime.
Not only that, Carmel’s fingerprints could well be on the knife after taking it away from the crime scene.
Police may see it plausible that Carmel wanted revenge after her son Shakil Kazemi’s (Shaheen Jafargholi) death.
Could this really be Carmel’s exit storyline, or has she just lied to Keegan?
One viewer tweeted: “Well surely the CCTV will have captured Carmel hovering over the body, touching him and picking the bl**dy knife up! #EastEnders.”
“Okay one thing that bugs me: did Carmel at least call the police or an ambulance for that boy who got stabbed or did she leave him? #eastenders,” quizzed another.
A third simply theorised: “Carmel stabbed that boy #EastEnders.”
“Keegan could frame the stabbing on Carmel #Eastenders,” suggested another.
A fifth added: “I also don’t think Keegan actually stabbed the kid, I think it was one of the others there and him and Carmel think it was him #Eastenders.”
Other viewers believe Carmel is lying to Keegan in a bid to prove a point about knife crime.
One viewer tweeted: “Why do I get the feeling Carmel isn’t being completely honest #Eastenders.”
“And did Keegan really kill that boy, or was Carmel proving some point? #EastEnders,” posted another.
A third added: “Hoping Carmel is teaching Keegan a lesson and he did not really kill some one the boy was just hurt.
“Will be gutted to lose that character especially to knife crime after Shakil #EastEnders.”
A fourth wrote: “I hope Carmel is lying just to teach Keegan a lesson #EastEnders.”
