EastEnders fans think that someone is going to be accidentally killed in Walford...

Last night's EastEnders saw Kush Kazemi continuing his attempts to help Jean Slater by secretly putting her bipolar medication in her food and drink... but fans think he is playing a dangerous game.

EastEnders viewers have watched Jean stop taking her medication since the Daniel's death, and she has recently started to worry Kush who is looking after the Slater clan in Kat's absence.
