    Lucas has to pay for what he has done!!!!

  • Comment number 2.

    come lucas be a man your not god playing with people lives .

  • Comment number 3.

    Gah! If only we could infiltrate the funeral and reveal the truth...

  • Comment number 4.

    Ah the "Funereal" of Denise. Should be awesome.

  • Comment number 5.

    YES! I can see Denise ghost in the back ground. No way out Lucas.

  • Comment number 6.

    When will Denise reappear alive and give Lucas the fright of his life and put him behind bars for good! These girls cannot be left without their beloved mother and in the hands of this monster. What a staple good character Denise is to Eastenders. Please bring her back! we never saw the body! How could this be left for so long un-realized. I hope Patrick sees through Lucas story and goes to the Police!

  • Comment number 7.

    At first, when Lucas went to see the body of Denise's I thought it was someone else... I guess I was wrong. Its sad that Denise has died. She was a good character!

  • Comment number 8.

    There should be like a little twist, where they aren't actually burying Denise. Like she could of survived in the water. Could be like burying someone else's body. And then later on in the show Denise comes back, etc. Pro twist. :D

  • Comment number 9.

    I really don't believe she's dead... She should turn up again soon...

  • Comment number 10.

    Omgd Nina must have been freezing loool :P
    Awwh do you know what im going tot stay positive im sticking with Denise not being dead hahaa although it sounds mad seen as we did sorta see her die....! We never saw her body...!?!?! And if you remember a few weeks ago Lucas was with a prostitute that looked just like Denise...! Well maybee he killed her and that was her body loool :P Pretty mental but its a posablility ;) Although dont know why he would have taken Chelsea with him...? Hmm Xxxx

  • Comment number 11.

    i love EastEnders so much and i think tha it is not denise body it is actuly a prostotutes body and lucus has got denise locked up some where :O tha would be ell of a wist tbh

  • Comment number 12.

    Don't believe Denise is dead. They didn't show her face for goodness sake! I think Kim finds something out and I hope he doesn't kill anyone else :@.

  • Comment number 13.

    I hope that the story line has a twist to it because we didn't see Denise's face. I hope that Denise comes back and brings Lucas to justice. He's such an evil God mocking man.

  • Comment number 14.

    I swear I just saw Denise in this clip at 31 seconds outside the shellfish bar!!! Check it out!!!

  • Comment number 15.

    Lucas needs to pay for what he has done!! I bet it's going to come out -- i hope it does too!!

  • Comment number 16.

    I agree, looks like Denise at 31/32!... did she get out of the car after ge left her for dead, and could she have made it to the police to tell them EVERYTHING! will the police allow this farce to go this far and then arrest this psycho-killer?! Please bring Denise back! And put the so-called preacher behind bars. Shame to portray a preacher in this way also. Quite sad. He should not be allowed to get away with any of the killings!

  • Comment number 17.

    lucas has got away with murder yet again n does anyone remember him killing sugar the dog he drowned her in the canal n the diving police found denises body but they didnt find sugars but its only a matter of time until lucas is locked up for good the next person that he might kill next is chelsea or libby or even patrick if hes capabale of killing his own wife then hes capable of killing anyone

  • Comment number 18.

    That sooo looks like denise, also the way shes walking, it looks like shes watching them, making sure they dont see her, but she is wearing different clothes also it looks like her hair is straightend?!

  • Comment number 19.


  • Comment number 20.

    Hellooo everyone! Please check this, at play time .27 and.29 you will see Deniz right behind Libbey with curly hair... than director changes the lady.. with someonelse..

    I bet my meney something will happen when grieving husband gives his speach, about how he loved his wife and how community came to know her and etc. etc.. this is when she will stand up and say .. you liying toade.. get your god to help you now... I am speaking from beyond grave.. baptise your sin now.. it will be interesting to watch.. lol

    Sinkey signing off... have good weekend all..x

  • Comment number 21.

    I don't think she's actually dead (Denise, that is) because we didn't see her body... he might hav her locked up somewhere... I think she might walk in in the middle of the funeral or something.

    But think about it... Lucas went into the viewing room alone,, so he could have identified the body even if it was her.

    And I never heard anything about her leaving... so...watch this space!

  • Comment number 22.

    I Hope Lucas Gets Found Out

  • Comment number 23.


  • Comment number 24.

    You have to feel for Libby she found out her Dad and Mum died on the same week :(

  • Comment number 25.

    Please, I would like to register the displeasure of the Christians to the role play by Lucas. It portrays Pastors as murderers, adultrers and liars. It shows Pastors and christains are hypocrates. Please, lets respect and fear God.

  • Comment number 26.

    lucas has gone WAY to far, he should be caught, they should find his DNA on the phone , that will solve this big problem!!

  • Comment number 27.

    that really looks like denise at 31 seconds!! :O infront of the shellfish bar ;)

  • Comment number 28.

    Lucas breakdown and confess his guilt? After what he has done that would be a piece of cake for him. But Lucas is beyond confessing, he is way in to deep! He is a serial killer who won't or can't stop. Denise was his fourth victim, yes his fourth, we must not forget poor Sugar, the dog. Lucas is a cold calculated man; he said he loves Denise but kills her as soon as a matter of opinion about baptism occurs. That is not love, that is wanting to be in control, like a puppetmaster who pulls the strings of his marionets. So Patrick, Libby, and yes even you Chelsea and Jordan, beware of Lucas, he is dangerous!

    I must agree that there is a possibility that Denise could be alive. But wouldn't that be a miracle after we saw her being killed by Lucas?
    Allright, suppose Denise is working together with 'the old Bill'. Then she must have given Lucas the impression that he killed her, the drowning part could have been easy. And procucing a corpse that looks like Denise is with help from the police not unthinkable. But Denise is a brave woman and I wouldn't put it past her if she was ready to help the police to get Lucas behind bars. But faking getting killed while it is realy happening is very tricky. But theoretically speaking not impossible.

  • Comment number 29.

    "like a puppetmaster who pulls the strings of his marionets" - so true, Alida. Lucas is a very manipulative man. He had us all fooled for a long time too. He has even fooled himself - into believing that he's doing the right thing. Makes you wonder where/how it will all end?

    EmmaLuvs EEx - I just checked. Gah! Spooky!

  • Comment number 31.

    i heard from my friend that it wasnt denise they fou8nd in the river it was a prostitute that lucas had dumped in the river denise is totally gonna show up soon ;) xx

  • Comment number 32.

    may comment 31 my friend told me the same thing but i didnt know if i was meant to believe it can anybody help me out insider_nickie maybe xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

  • Comment number 33.

    i Personally Do Not Think Its Denise Cause When Lucas Identified the Body We Didnt See the Face and have We Seen The Body After? I think Not

  • Comment number 34.

    I'm afraid that if I were to reveal anything about upcoming storylines, Lucas might come after me... Sorry! Keep watching! The answer to your questions is imminent *waves hands around her EastEnders crystal ball*

  • Comment number 35.

    I don't think denise is dead, and here are my reasons:

    1. The actress who plays Denise (Diane Parish) has NOT said she's leaving EE.

    2. lucas went and identified the body himSELF

  • Comment number 36.

    Not available in your area :-((
    Why is it that only British fans are allowed to watch previews and missed episodes...there are EE-fans outside the UK as well you know!.
    Missed the entire series last week and part of the week before (due to technical malfunction of the recorder) would be so nice to be able to see it on the BBCwebsite.

  • Comment number 37.

    i love this storyline but i think its nearing its conclusion now ive watched the clip i dont believe denise is dead either i think shes in the crowd walking with the people following the funeral procession but stands off at the back when the procession walkers stop .

  • Comment number 38.

    Lucas has taken it too far !! he needs to confess now !!! otherwise it will be too late and another might be killed by him !!

  • Comment number 39.

    if only we could hijack the after party and reveil lucus for what he realy is !!!

  • Comment number 40.

    i cant believe this! but i could believe lucas could kill again since he has killed before, but he must pay! life sentance i say! Hey, i could make a cool court judge, right? right?

  • Comment number 41.

    such a shame I cannot watch these previews in the Netherland, where I live. Service not available in my area........

  • Comment number 42.

    Another reason it might not be Denise in the water is her body would have had to undergo a postmortem. Which apart from the fact there would be potentially obvious strangulation markings on her neck, in addition to this, would be that as she was killed before entering the water; there would be substantially less fluid on the lungs and that is something easily detectable. Surely the writers would not have overlooked this, so something exciting must be going to happen!

  • Comment number 43.

    I think Lucas should pay for what he did. I mean he is suppose to be a Pastor and yet he kills Owen, Trina, Denise. Where is the Bible Lucas does it say that u have to take another person's life. I cannot begin to know how Libby, Chelsea, & Jordan feels. U destroyed them Lucas. But one day my friend justice will be done

  • Comment number 44.

    she is alive at her own funeral well done lovey, she is standing buy the shellfish bar xx

  • Comment number 45.

    Am I being daft but why hasn't anyone (police, post mortum, etc) noticed that Denise was strangled and NOT drowned!!!!

  • Comment number 46.

    Hi everyone
    I am knew to this.
    Well Denise does turn up at her own funeral. She is in the background to the left hand side. Also when i received my eastenders newsletter this morning it said that some people think there is a ghost present! So if that isn't a big enough clue. I also think that Lucas dies in a fire as i have read that where he is going is going to be very warm.

  • Comment number 47.

    Lucas has gone way too far this time

  • Comment number 48.

    Lucas is a phsyco and i hope denise is not dead and comes back to hand him into the police herself !!!!!! :D

  • Comment number 49.

    denise isnt dead
    if you go to 00.31 on the video look into the left corner
    the women looks alot like denise dont you think

  • Comment number 50.

    I don't think it's Denise, as when they brought that body up from the water there was not one ring on the womans hand and Denise had rings on almost all of her fingers! Then again Lucas could of took em and pawned em lol.

  • Comment number 51.

    Now come on, I watch CSI and Waking The Dead just like everyone else so I proud to say I am an armchair amateur Pathologist. If Denise was already dead when she was thrown into the water, there was no way she could drown - surely this would have been noticed in the autopsy? So how come the police have not aready come knocking at the door and her body has been released for burial?

  • Comment number 52.

    this is ridiculous! someone just bust his ass already!
    hes potraying pastors in the most disrespectful way and representing them as if they are
    murderers, adulterers, liars.. etc.

    tbh, i was actually against owen when he said there was something wrong with lucas and denise shouldnt marry him. and now im shocked because owen was RIGHT.

    i hope denise appears at the funeral and reveals what lucas did.
    PATRICK CANNOT leave libby and chelsea and jordan in the hands of this monster.

    SOME NEEDS TO KILL LUCAS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • Comment number 53.

    lucas is a murderer I hope Patrick murders him

  • Comment number 54.

    wey hey denise is alive

  • Comment number 55.

    So pleased we got it right about Denise still being alive. Now someone has to rescue her. Lucas needs to get his punishment. Puzzled about one thing though - the police knew what Denise looked like & have seen the body so they must have known it wasn`t Denise? They shouldn`t have released the body or were they waiting for Lucas to slip up. Of course it could be they`re nore interested in catching motorists than catching killers, you just can`t get the staff now!

  • Comment number 56.

    monkey - no to Patrick being a murderer but want him to find Denise & then take her to the police.

  • Comment number 57.

    brilliant story line, the best in years. Well done Eastenders! I was so happy to see Denise was still alive.

  • Comment number 58.

    It's horrible Lucas should be revenged

  • Comment number 59.

    Correct me if I'm wrong, but isn't the police officer that interviewed Denise for Owen's murder, the same officer that was with Lucas when he "identified" her body??....Didn't he notice it was not the same woman!!!

  • Comment number 60.

    THIS is so unusual. LUCAS has a double identity.





  • Comment number 61.


  • Comment number 62.

    Denise is alive!
    Well-done Eastenders; this story line is simply brilliant. We hope for more brilliance as Lucas is finally exposed.

  • Comment number 63.

    Good story, but I wish they did it so she had to struggle to get out rather than he just simply let her go. It would've been nice to see her fight her way free. The whole story wasn't without its flaws, but nonetheless it was entertaining.

  • Comment number 64.

    If a EastEnders cast member leaves then they tell us on here a couple of time in advance so i knew that denise was still alive cuz shes wasnt leavin or quiting
