As one loved-up Walford resident gets ready to propose, EASTENDERS may lose a beloved character in upcoming scenes.
According to a recent theory, Howie Danes (Delroy Atkinson), who plays Kim Fox on EastEnders, might reject her marriage proposal, so Tameka Empson’s character Kim Fox might feel she must permanently leave the show. After Vincent Hubbard’s (Richard Blackwood) murder was made public, the mother of two found love again with children’s entertainer Howie. Will he break her heart if she misinterprets his distant behavior, though?
Howie behaves suspiciously in the episodes airing the following week after receiving an ominous phone call.
Later, when he sees Kim, he suggests they go on a date so they can talk.
Kim panics and thinks her new partner is going to pop the question.
When she runs into Felix Baker (Matthew Morrison), she confides her feelings about the kid-friendly performer.
Kim explains Howie’s peculiar behavior and why she believes he wants to kneel down.
She agrees that it’s too soon after discussing her new relationship with Felix and has a plan to break it to him gently.
Kim is shocked, though, when Howie calls to cancel their date.
Howie is anxious, in Kim’s opinion, and has changed his mind before the big proposal.
Howie meets with Delilah, the woman he spoke to earlier on the phone, in the interim.
Howie refuses her request and says it’s too soon to tell Kim his secret.
Kim confides in Denise Fox (Diane Parish) about Howie’s alleged proposal when they are back on the square.
After having a change of heart, she decides it is important to show her partner how much she values him.
Kim remembers how Howie entered her life and how he assisted her in accepting Vincent’s passing.
She prepares for Howie’s arrival and tells her sister she is going to propose.
But it’s obvious he has something to tell her when he shows up.
Will he have the opportunity to speak before Kim proposes?
Fans of EastEnders may recall how Howie recently attempted to hide from Kim when she insisted on caring for him after suffering a leg injury.
The newest Fox family member admires Kim greatly but understandably wants to build their relationship gradually.
He’ll probably turn down Kim’s request, breaking the heart of the steadfast.
Is it possible that he’s keeping Delilah’s true relationship with Kim a secret from her?
This might be too much for Kim after everything she’s been through, and she might decide to leave Walford permanently.
