EastEnders: Shock new pics of Mick Carter’s attack

But who is his mystery assailant?

EastEnders fans are set to be shocked when Mick’s attacked by a balaclava-clad intruder in tonight’s episode – and if this picture is anything to go by, it’s going to be dramatic.

It was revealed last week that Mick is going to find himself jumped on by a mysterious figure in The Vic’s barrel store… but with the scenes airing tonight, there isn’t long to wait to find out exactly who has got it in for the pub landlord.

While alone in the pub tonight, Mick is set to hear a strange noise coming from the barrel store and plucks up the courage to investigate.

But he soon comes face-to-face with a man hiding his identity with a balaclava – and poor Mick thinks his days are numbered.

The pair are set to have a scuffle as Mick fights off the intruder, but viewers will have to wait and see what happens next.

By Thursday fans will know who the attacker is – but why are they in The Vic, and what do they want with Mick.

Is it really him they’re after, or have they got the wrong man?

Or could the attack have something to do with Aidan? Perhaps he’s still holding a grudge against the Carters and he’s trying to show Mick who is boss?

Another big storyline coming up for the Carters follows on from Halfway’s arrival back in Albert Square.

His older brother Stuart arrives in Walford and is soon making trouble for the family by playing tricks and pulling pranks.
