Another added: “I agree with this, this whole storyline has been falling flat for me because even though I loathe Ian, I never saw how it was his fault in the first place.”
EastEnders viewers were kept in the dark about Ian’s interest in buying the pub and he may have shared a secret conversation with Sharon where he came clean about the boat party.
After hearing the truth, the blonde bombshell could have realised her estranged husband was ultimately responsible for her son’s death and forgiven her closest friend.
Could Sharon already know the truth or will Dotty expose all in explosive scenes when the soap returns?
EastEnders is available to watch on BBC iPlayer.
