EastEnders Sharon Beale made another deadly move in Thursday’s episode to poison her husband Ian Beale once and for all.
Sharon has been plotting revenge on Ian for locking her son Denny in a room on the boat which sank in the infamous boat party that led to his death.
And while she has been battling guilt over killing him, listening to Denny’s desperate voicemail he left her before he died, incriminating Ian, made her furious enough to plan to kill Ian that night.
But fans noticed she poured the lethal bag of powder into the frying pan while she was cooking and fried the drugs, rather than simply adding it in once it was cooked.
Viewers were baffled as this could have made the drugs no longer lethal.
“I’m no poison expert but surely cooking it might stop it working? #EastEnders,” wondered another.
A third joked: “I can’t believe what Sharon put in that carbonara. It’s criminal. I mean, who the bloody hell makes it with onions? #EastEnders “.
Other fans were convinced Ian would swap the dishes around, because he is on to her.
Sharon offered: “I thought I’d make my spaghetti carbonara tonight, bottle of red, garlic bread, if you fancy?”
“Yeah, sounds delicious,” said Ian.
Flirty, Sharon added: “Well, as you’re feeling better I thought we could make it a special night?”
“Well we have been married a month, didn’t you think it’s about time we truly became man and wife?”
“Let’s make it a night to remember, yeah!” said an excited Ian.
Later, Ian caught Sharon with Denny’s phone and looked terrified before she pretended that it didn’t work.
“I’m really sorry I didn’t mean to intrude,” said Ian as he walked in on Sharon with her box of Denny’s belongings.
Sharon replied: “He used to like making voice notes, I’d give anything to hear his voice again, but it’s broke.
“I like holding his things, you know? Makes me feel close to him.”
Referencing his daughter Lucy, who was killed by her brother Bobby, Ian replied: “I feel like that with Lucy’s stuff.
“You’re not the only one who thinks about him, there is not a day goes by where I don’t beat myself up for not saving him.
“But there’s no point dwelling in the past, is there? I’m looking forward to tonight.”
Sharon was left clearly raging but tried her hardest not to show it.
