Say it isn’t so! New Eastenders spoilers tease that it might be the end of the road for one of our favorite couples in Walford: Mick Carter (Danny Dyer) and Linda Carter. (Kellie Bright) As a matter of fact, things haven’t been looking so good for them ever since Mick came home from prison. Here’s what you need to know.
Even though Linda did everything in her power to make sure that Mick would be freed from prison after he was falsely accused of shooting Stuart Highway, (Ricky Champ) the couple has been dealing with some major trust issues. As a matter of fact, Mick is still trying to get past some of the scars of what happened to him while he was behind bars and unfortunately, there isn’t much that Linda can do to help him.
If that weren’t enough, Mick had thought that Linda was cheating on him with Stuart Highway. Little did he know that she was actually plotting to get him to tell the truth about what happened during that almost fatal night at the Queen Vic.

One source close to the Eastenders production team puts it this way, “Those days Mick spent behind bars were the longest and darkest days of his life. He really did think that he’d be locked up for years and that Linda had abandoned him. He had no idea that she was secretly plotting to get him released – and while he now knows the truth, he still bears the scars of what happened to him inside.”
Despite his vows to always be there for his family, Mick’s spirit is breaking. What’s more, the tension between him and Linda is palpable and she simply can’t handle the stress anymore. Will the couple’s marriage survive? Of course, fans will have to tune in to find out what will happen next!
