EastEnders' Aaron confesses to New Year's Eve bomb plot

EastEnders spoilers follow.

Aaron Monroe has confessed to the right-wing group's bomb plot in disturbing EastEnders scenes.

Dana Monroe's older brother has become a dangerous influence in Walford ever since he arrived, having whipped up a phoney controversy over the school cancelling its nativity and later desecrating the Argee Bhajee.

Thursday's episode (December 30) concluded with Aaron confessing to father Harvey that terror group leader Neil had organised a bomb to be planted at The Albert for New Year's Eve.

Harvey started to get suspicious when Aaron was determined to prevent sister Dana from going anywhere near The Albert for the New Year celebrations.

Once Harvey spotted Aaron later with known racist agitator Neil, he realised his son had fallen in with a very dangerous crowd.

In gripping closing scenes, Harvey demanded answers from Aaron over what Neil had planned for The Albert. Aaron initially refused to reveal anything, but Harvey then threatened to ask Neil directly.

That's when Aaron backed down and claimed he'd gotten in over his head with the racist group – who viewers will remember attacked Keegan Baker on his behalf earlier this month.

"Dad, this wasn't my idea," Aaron claimed. "I didn't know he was going to pull a stunt like this… They've planted a bomb and it's going off tonight."

Harvey's blood ran cold over his son's admission – will he do something to stop a tragedy from happening in Walford?

Previously-released spoilers have hinted at what comes next, as the lives of multiple residents of Walford will not be the same following New Year's Eve. The early 2022 episodes will also feature Bobby Beale unraveling the right-wing group's terror plot.

EastEnders airs on Mondays, Tuesdays, Thursdays and Fridays on BBC One.
