Tonight's EastEnders saw a scene leave a huge clue that fans could be on the right track.

After finding out that Max Branning (Jake Wood) kissed Linda on a night out last week, Mick initially seemed surprisingly calm about the whole thing.

But when he came face-to-face with Max in the Square, his anger finally got the better of him as he told Mr Branning what he really thought.

However, as the argument progressed, he called Max a predator and accused him of taking advantage of Linda when she was weak and vulnerable.
