EastEnders viewers were left stunned after Phil and Sharon kissed in last night’s episode (Monday, April 6) and are convinced they’re going to run The Vic together.
In last week’s EastEnders, viewers saw Sharon’s estranged husband Phil return to Walford for the first time since his adopted son Dennis died.
At first Sharon didn’t want to speak to Phil. But eventually the pair found themselves reminiscing about the good memories they have with Dennis.
Feeling guilty and blaming his fight with Keanu for the boat crash, and Dennis’s death, Phil decided to hand himself into the police.
In last night’s episode, Phil turned himself in but solicitor Ritchie told Phil’s son, Ben, that Phil could be facing life in prison.
At Christmas, Sharon told the police she believed Phil had Keanu killed.
Knowing the only way to stop Phil from going to prison is if Sharon retracted her statement, Ben begged his stepmother to go to the police and take back what she had said.
Although Phil was prepared to be punished, he was shocked to be let go. He later discovered that Sharon is reason he is free.
He paid his wife a visit and Sharon told Phil that he was a good dad to Dennis.
Sharon explained to Phil they couldn’t keep blaming themselves for Dennis dying and she couldn’t face losing Phil too.
The pair shared a kiss, leaving viewers shocked.
#EastEnders can't believe Sharon took Phil back. I guess then they're setting for Ian to take full blame for Denny's death. Ridiculous

The only way this should go: Sharon makes Phil buy the Vic for her, then divorces him and takes it all for herself. #EastEnders

Are Sharon and Phil getting back together?
Fans of the show know Sharon and Phil have had a rocky relationship.
Their latest challenge came after Phil discovered Sharon’s unborn child wasn’t his – it’s Keanu Taylor’s baby.
Although Phil and Sharon had a bitter split, Dennis’s death seems to have brought them back to one another.
But whether they’ll get back together and become a couple again remains to be seen.
How did Dennis die?
Dennis died as a result of drowning.
On the day of The Queen Vic boat party, Ian Beale found out that Dennis was the one behind the online abuse campaigns about his son Bobby.
Wanting to take Dennis to the police when the boat docked, Ian locked him in a room on the boat’s lower deck.
As Dennis left a voicemail for Sharon telling him what Ian had done, Phil and Keanu got into a fight on the top of the boat.
They ended up knocking the boat controls and the boat crashed, taking on water.
Although Ian immediately tried to save Dennis and managed to get him out of the room, a surge of water caused Dennis to drown.
EastEnders will temporarily air a reduced schedule of two episodes a week. Watch on Mondays at 8pm and Tuesdays at 7.30pm on BBC One.
