Dramatic scenes during last night’s episode of EastEnders saw Leo’s sickening revenge plan come to life.
After hiding in the attic of Whitney’s home, the stalker eventually crept up on the fashion designer and attempted to kill her in revenge for the death of his dad, paedo, Tony King.
Despite his best efforts, Whitney managed to escape after launching a jewellery box at his head, knocking him to the ground for several minutes.
However, she was unable to escape as he had locked the front and back door.
After the pair came head to head in the kitchen, Whitney believed she was safe after Leo whacked his head on the table.
Attempting to phone for help, the brunette stood with her back to the kitchen, only to find Leo had stood up with a knife in his hand.
Her stalker eventually tackled the market trader before they got into a scuffle.
After fighting on the floor, Leo plunged at Whitney who eventually stabbed him in the chest.
Nearing the end of the dramatic episode, the camera panned to an ariel shot which saw Leo bleeding to death on the floor.
Following the traumatic Valentine’s Day episode of EastEnders – Whitney was left horrified and didn’t know where to turn or who to turn to.
After panicking, Whitney turns to her ex-father-in-law, Mick.
Whitney has been the victim of Leo’s deranged quest for revenge, believing that she lied about what went on between her and his dad, Tony.
Their fight broke out after Leo read Whitney’s last letter from Tony: “I read it. Dad’s letter. Didn’t take long. Couldn’t have taken him long to write it. Then right at the end, right before he was about to end it all, he had the heart to write that.
“Dearest Whit, I always loved you. He forgave you.”
Viewers will see the drama unfold in scenes airing from February 17th as the soap gears up for an anniversary special.
EastEnders continues on Monday at 8pm on BBC One
