EastEnders fans have been worried about Tommy Moon’s (Sonny Kendall) fate after watching him fall from a window during a shocking blaze at the Mitchell house on last night’s episode (Monday 13 September). 

After Janine’s (Charlie Brooks) daughter Scarlett (Tabitha Byron) was reported missing, Kat (Jessie Wallace) and Janine rushed to find her, only for Janine to discover that she’d been hiding with her half-brother, Tommy, at his home.

Determined to get her back, Janine chased the two upstairs, despite Phil Mitchell (Steve McFadden) lying unconscious on the floor after being hit by Shirley Carter (Linda Henry).

Once Janine found them in Tommy’s room and tried to take Scarlett, Tommy locked them, including himself, in the room stopping Janine from escaping with Scarlett and threw the keys in between the floorboards.

However, they were clueless to the flames getting bigger downstairs in the kitchen, caused by Janine accidentally throwing Scarlett’s cardigan onto the stove while she tried to catch her.

Soon, the fire alarm began blaring and smoke started to fill up the room. The trio managed to escape the room and as they made their way downstairs, Scarlett accidentally let go of a terrified Tommy’s hand, who ran back upstairs.

Scarlett begged Janine to go back and save him, and once Scarlett was safely out of the house, Janine went back up to rescue him.

She soon realised it was too dangerous to go back downstairs and that the only way out would be through the window.

Janine managed to hold Tommy as he dangled out of the window until a fire engine arrived. However, before the firemen could reach the house, a huge explosion happened, forcing Tommy to lose his grip and fall to the ground.

Oblivious to the tragedy that just happened, Kat soon turns up to the carnage, panicking and looking for Tommy. She runs to the ambulance in tears, wailing “Tommy! No!”

Kat then turns to Janine who she accuses of harming him, saying, “What did you do to him?!”  

“I’m the one that saved him,” Janine replied. A heartbroken Kat then looked at Tommy lying unconscious in the ambulance.

EastEnders viewers took to Twitter to express their worries for youngster Tommy and were concerned about what could happen to him…
