A shock alliance has seemingly been forged between Peter Beale (Dayle Hudson) and Kheerat Panesar (Jaz Deol) in EastEnders, as the two got up to no good on the night of Ian Beale’s (Adam Woodyatt) attack.
Ian was left for dead last week, and the police — and the viewers, for that matter — have been trying to get to the bottom of who it was that carried out the brutal attack.
Several residents of Walford have been acting shifty in the wake of the crime — many who have more than enough reason to want the publican dead.
However, in tonight’s episode (December 11), the attention turned to Kheerat.
Jack Branning (Scott Maslen) learned that traces of blood had been found inside a hire van, and samples of said blood were sent off to forensics in order to find out if it was Ian’s.
Given that the hire van was seemingly used by Kheerat on the night of the attack, Jack wasted little time in quizzing him — and it’s safe to say that Kheerat was spooked as a result.
Therefore, he made a secret call — demanding to meet the person on the other end of the line at nightfall.
With darkness having fallen over Walford, Kheerat headed to the office, where the mystery man he was meeting was revealed to be none other than Peter!
Kheerat insisted that the two men remain one another’s alibis.
Does this mean that they teamed up to take down Ian?
If not, then what did they get up to on the night in question?
EastEnders continues Monday December 14 at 8:05pm on BBC One.
