EastEnders reveals Linda Carter’s fate after devastating car crash injuries

Her family get more news next week.

EastEnders spoilers follow.

EastEnders has revealed Linda Carter’s fate as she wakes up from her coma next week.

Linda’s life is currently hanging in the balance following her involvement in a dramatic car crash with Janine Butcher.

Thursday night’s episode saw Linda’s family learn that she is likely to experience brain damage if and when she eventually wakes up.

To make matters worse, the Carters have been led to believe that Linda’s accident was caused by her drink-driving, following some sly scheming from her love rival Janine.

Viewers know that Janine was actually behind the wheel but pulled Linda out of the vehicle and into the driver’s seat so that it looked like she’d been driving under the influence.

When another car stopped to help, Janine made out that she was just another passer-by, before fleeing the scene.

As Janine fears her lies are starting to come unstuck next week, the Carter clan keep a vigil at Linda’s bedside.

New spoilers have confirmed that Linda will finally wake up in Wednesday’s episode (June 15), much to her family’s relief. But whether Linda remembers the crash, or the circumstances leading up to it, remains to be seen.

Kellie Bright, who plays Linda, recently spoke out about her future on the show, in the light of the news that her on-screen husband Danny Dyer is bowing out.

“I’m happy to stay at the moment although I am obviously sad to see Danny go,” Kellie said to Inside Soap.

“He’s my best friend here – we’ve been together since the beginning and I’m really going to miss him. He wants to do other things and I support him as a mate, but as the same time, it’s sad for me.”

EastEnders airs these scenes on Wednesday, June 15 at 7.30pm on BBC One. All episodes are available to stream on BBC iPlayer.
