Spoilers: Killer Lucas lets Patrick die as he suffers a stroke in EastEnders?

Patrick Trueman’s (Rudolph Walker) life hangs in the balance in EastEnders after a heated showdown with Lucas Johnson (Don Gilet), but will the killer leave him to die?

Patrick begged Phil Mitchell (Steve McFadden) for help in protecting Denise Fox (Diane Parish) after Lucas returned to Walford.

The hard-man promised to do as Patrick asked, on the condition that he could spend some time with Raymond Dawkins.

Patrick reluctantly agreed to Phil’s terms, but he’s struggled under the pressure of keeping such a thing a secret from Denise.

During tonight’s episode, he took Raymond to the park with Phil for a kickabout, but Kim (Tameka Empson) witnessed such a thing, and wasted little time in relaying such information to Denise.

Denise was fuming with Patrick, and resolved to move into Jack Branning’s (Scott Maslen).

Patrick was heartbroken, but he got quite the shock when Lucas turned up on his doorstep and pushed his way into his home.

The serial killer believed Denise to have been responsible for the attack carried out on him, but Patrick revealed that he’s to blame, before reiterating that he believes Lucas to be an evil man.

However, he ultimately struggled to finish his sentence, and collapsed to the chair — unable to move or talk.

Lucas took out his phone to call for an ambulance, but he paused momentarily, as Patrick watched on.

Will Lucas allow Patrick to die?

EastEnders continues Friday January 8 at 8:35pm on BBC One.
