The EastEnders cast member had stumbled around Albert Square and attempted to ask Mick Carter (Danny Dyer) for help, but the pub landlord turned Shakil away thinking he was drunk.
It was only when Mick discovered Keegan Baker (Zack Morris) lying in the alleyway behind the Queen Vic with savage knifing injuries that he found out that Shakil was actually in a desperate situation.
But by then, it was already too late.
Shakil passed away in harrowing scenes that followed, leaving Mick racked with guilt for being so quick to dismiss the Walford High school pupil.
EastEnders spoilers have now revealed that Mick will struggle to come to terms with Shakil’s death, especially knowing that he could have saved him.
At first, Shakil’s mum Carmel (Bonnie Langford) will blame Mick for her tragic loss.
Carmel will also lash out at Keegan’s mum Karen Taylor (Lorraine Stanley), furious that her son’s still alive.
And there’s even more heartache to come as teaser pics for Thursday’s episode show Mick, Carmel and Karen in the laundrette.
“The best two years ever. Thank you everybody for your incredibly kind messages”
In one snap, Mick places a supportive hand on Karen’s knee as they reflect on the emotional events.
While another photo shows Carmel and Mick struggling to hold back the tears as Karen attempts to relieve the tension.
Will Carmel ever be able to forgive Mick and will Mick ever be able to forgive himself?
It’s already been revealed that Carmel will hit rock bottom in upcoming scenes, and will attempt to take her own life.
In shocking scenes, Carmel’s oldest son Kush (Davood Ghadami) finds his mum and she desperately tries to rewind her attempt.
The knife attack storyline has had viewers glued to the edge of their seats with tissues in tow.
Actor Shaheen, 21, thanked his 38,400 Twitter followers for their support after his last scenes aired.
“The best two years ever. Thank you everybody for your incredibly kind messages,” he wrote.
“To say I am overwhelmed would be an understatement. Thank you to everybody at EastEnders for being such a dream. RIP Shaki.”
