Eastenders Does Rob Or Ryan Die When They Fight Over Whitney?
Whitney Dean has certainly been through a lot since she first appeared in Eastenders, and just when she thought things were going well, her new love interest Lee turned out to be a dodgy mate of her ex pimp/boyfriend Rob Grayson. Whitney arrives at the park expecting to meet Lee so is totally unprepared when Rob turns up instead. After nervously listening to what the bad boy has to say, Whitney manages to escape him once again and heads off to Southend with Fatboy. However while the two are having a nice time at the fair, Rob is nearby waiting for his chance to pounce.
When Rob finally gets Whitney alone, he tries filling her head with rubbish about how they were meant to be together, and how much he has changed, but when he tries to guide Whitney into his car, the vulnerable teen sees sense and does a runner after hitting him with the car door. Later back in her hotel room, Whitney is petrified when Rob barges through the door, but when Rob starts putting on the charm and filling Whitney's head with his make believe rubbish it looks like Whitney may be falling for his act, despite Rob admitting to lying about his Mums cancer and admitting that he was the one that smashed Phil's car window so he could get Fatboy out the way.
However things take a turn for the worse when Fatboy arrives back to the room and is none to pleased to see Rob there. Fatboy wants to protect Whitney and so he stands in front of her and fronts up to evil Rob, but as we already know, Rob hates anyone that stands up to him, and he takes Fatboy by surprise when he swiftly punches him in the face. Whitney is horrified and realising Rob hasn't changed at all she manages to get him to leave. When they are sure that Rob has gone, Whitney gets Fatboy to phone Ryan as she really needs her brother right now.
When an angry Ryan eventually arrives in Southend, he is determined to sort Rob out once and for all after what he has done to Whitney and begins trying to track him down. However when Whitney realises Ryan's intentions she rushes after him, preying that he doesn't do anything stupid. But when Whitney finds Ryan, he is already involved in a vicious fight with Rob, and as Ryan pushes the evil pimp off the pier, Rob grabs hold of Ryan and the two lads plunge into the sea.
Neither lad has resurfaced since the fight, and it is not long before the police diving team are searching the nearby water. A detective starts questioning Whitney on what has taken place, and with FatBoy urging her to tell the complete truth, and Whitney feeling guilty that she bought her brother into this mess, Whitney cant take anymore and runs off to get some space. Later Whitney is beside herself when she witnesses police divers fishing a dead body out of the sea, but is it Rob's or Ryan's?
Well it is obviously Robs body that has been found as we will later see Ryan saying his goodbyes to Whitney before he goes on the run. Whitney then has to go back to the square and break the news to loved up Lauren. Dot feels sorry for Whitney especially since both Bianca and Rickaaay are away, so she takes it upon herself to be there to support the vulnerable teen. The police have advised Whitney to seek counselling and Dot is trying to convince Whitney to do the same. And it looks like Whitney will need some moral support when Rob's dodgy mate Lee turns up and threatens her, Lee warns Whitney not to mention his name in the ongoing police investigation involving Rob and Ryan.
An Eastenders spokesman has confirmed that Ryan will commit murder before leaving the square, they went onto say "Ryan's been involved in some big story lines so we wanted him to leave in typically dramatic fashion, Neil felt it was time for him to spend more time with his family, however he is not being killed off, so there is always a chance he could return in the future."
