Haunting scenes showing Whitney Dean (Shona McGarty) started hallucinating that she had met a 12-year-old version of herself.
Eerily the heroine started to hear the spine-tingling sounds of Tony King, a pedophile after her hunger strike had caused her to hallucinate.
Elsewhere in the show, uneasy scenes showed Gray Atkins (Toby-Alexander Smith) hailed the "hero" of his wife Chantelle's parents moments after he bludgeoned her.
Gobsmacked fans shared their disgust when Gray was named a hero just minutes after audiences saw him allegedly rape his wife.
Among the tweets, one posted, "Urgh, Gray gets praised in front of everybody for what he's done to his wife, #EastEnders."
