EastEnders: Is Danielle Dead?

EastEnders logo

It’s not quite a Richard Curtis movie, but tonight’s EastEnders packed in a wedding (possibly the shortest in the show’s history) and what looks like a potentially fatal accident for poor Danielle. As tonight’s episode ended, the undertakers were already moving in to take measurements.

Lording it over the whole episode, sinister Archie striking terror in Peggy for daring to wear a plunging neckline to her own wedding, and skulking around as Danielle tried to reveal everything to a baffled Ronnie. He had all the hallmarks of a modern day Dracula.

I’m not normally a soap watcher, but I’ll tune in for special occassions like this. Samantha Janus and Lauren Crace put on an emotional rollercoaster of an episode. Up to this point, Danielle (played by Crace) has been mildly annoying with her perma-constipated expression and fumbled attempts to reveal her secret to Ronnie. In the lead up to tonight’s thrilling episode, Archie has been trying to suppress Danielle’s secret, once with electrical wire.

After seeing Danielle into the street outside the Queen Vic, Ronnie gives a sugary speech for Archie, but as she gives the toast, she almost swallows the locket that Danielle placed in her glass. My heart thudded at that point – you could tell Archie was rumbled.

Hilariously, the rest of the guests at the wedding (all long-term Albert Square residents) looked on impassively as Ronnie revealed Archie’s deception. Only Peggy looked confused for a moment as her worst suspicions about Archie were confirmed. Archie puts the final nails in his own coffin when he says (oblivious to Peggy standing behind him) “I’ll snap my fingers and Peggy will come running.”

Within moments though, Ronnie catches up with Danielle. However, Danielle has graduated to zombie-acting at this stage and stands in the middle of the road just long enough for Janine to ‘butcher’ her. Geddit? Butcher? LOL!

Brilliantly, Janine and Stacey stand comepletely horror-struck as Ronnie cradles her long-lost daughter in her arms. Danielle’s hair is heavily matted in blood at the back and she fades into unconsciousness. The big question is, is she dead as Ronnie seems to think, or should we wait for that ambulance crew to confirm or deny it?

Best episode in ages. I hope Danielle lives to look harrowed another day though.

    Danielle can’t be dead!!!! Are the Eastenders writers mad? This storyline has been painfully tedious up until tonight and just when it looks like it might get interesting they bloomin killl her off. Come on!

      If Dannielle dies I will cry myself to sleep every night for the rest of my life!!

       

      Seriously DO NOT kill her off:(

      1. missy

        come on you cant kill Danielle off, after all these years ronnie just found out that her daughter really is alive!!! 

        not just that ronnie has been lonely most of her life with out anyone at least we can now say shez not lonely anymore , now that she has her girl with her : (

        The episode Danielle died, i didn’t believe it, but i cried a lot. I kept saying I don’t think she’s dead when i knew it was true, it is only a soap but i feel so attatched to danielle. If the writters had any sense they would bring Lauren back, to play Danielle x

      I can’t believe it either, really disappointed in the writers. They should not have killed her off- big mistake.

    3. becky- 15

      surely danielle cant die, cant she be resussitated or maybe her dad can identify the body as not his adopted daughter. maybe he can say its her but its really not. please bring her back, its nice to have a happy ending in eastenders every year or so. ronnie has always been sad since she lost her daughter because of archie and now its happened all over again. :'(

    I am outstanded and outraged, after watching tonights episode of easrtenders, how after all these months of this danielle and ronnie storyline the eastenders writers have ended it like this, after watching for months and watching this story grow for the enders writers to go and kill danielle off is a f***ing disgrace, the british public have grown to like the character and really wanted a happy ending, and the numptys at enders decide yet again in there infernent wisdom to end a good storyline with a proper s**t ending. Janine has got her way out AGAIN, and they have gone back to old story lines, first it was pat killing someone in her car now janine BORING, how about for once letting something good happen, i am sorry but forgive me if i am wrong but the east end of london aint this b*****y grim, its aint been this grim since the buponic plague and it wouldnt surprise me now if the writers of enders watched this and thought’hold on a minute we aint used that, lets give everybody the plague’.
    All i can say is boooooooo eastenders, get up to date with stuff people want to watch, we have enough of a crap time with the way the country is in at the moment, for them IDIOTS to go and do this, jesus christ eastenders wake up and get out of the victorian age

      I hope they dont kill Danielle, then i will stop watching this show. ITs really pathetic…. couldnt they invent something else? Its has really gotten into me and into my skin. This is not how they are going to keep their story line. And I do agree with soe people, why are they keep hitting people with car?  Please stop this insanity.   I hope they do not kill my favorite character off. Lauren is such a good actress and really I start seeing the Mitchel in Danielle, but now she is dead??? whats this for news……. the writers need to finnd some other ways to keep her alive or this is all screwed.

  3. Gerard McGarry

    Too right, we won’t be spared a long and gruesome death, complete with earnest deathbed reconciliation between mother and daughter! Given how much this storyline has dragged on until now, they surely couldn’t resist a month in a hospital bed?

    1. holly

      I hope there is hope and she is not dead, even though she said in the papers she wants to have a break from acting, so as devistatingly it is for me to say it,-i think she is dead 🙁 stupid horrible producers what a crap ending.

  4. Lisa S

    I think Danielle does die as i read in a magazine that Ronnie goes to the airport to leave and Jack comes to get her and anounce his love for her…why would Ronnie leave if her daughter was in a coma / hospitalised etc? ?

    i agree with you guys – I cant believe the writters would be dumb enough to kill Danielle off as they have made everyone watch the story line for so many months with nothing happening.

    If they think they will impress viewers by now dragging out Ronnie howling for her daughter who is now dead – I love Eastenders but I dont think i could bear months of a story line of the funeral and her getting even more depressed.

    I must say the acting from Ronnie and Danielle tonight was the best i had seen for a long time on Eastenders – They did it very well!!

    PLEASE BRING DANIELLE BACK – Eastenders was just getting juicy again!!

      Danielle does not die because i have look on yahoo questions and it come up that Danielle is rushed to hospital and stacey said to ronnie that don’t be dispointed if she doesn’t won’t to know you any more because i wouldn’t any way because off this ronnie decides to leave without jack! tahnks for reading 🙂

    I REALLY HOPE SHE IS NOT DEAD NOW THAT SHE HAS REVEALED HER SECRET! PLEASE BE ALIVE! ONE OF MY FAVIOURITE CHARACTERSS:)

    I know – I only just thought about it and remembered I read a TV mag about Ronnie leaving and being at the airport – I could be totally wrong! but putting 2 and 2 together, why else would she be going..?

    I hope like you she isnt dead – I never get involved in writting my views on it – but this had really peed me off

    We only have tonight and then a good start to the weekend once Eastenders has done its stuff on Friday!!

    fingers crossed she’s alive – YEAH !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  9. Aaron

    i have been waiting so long for this secret of danielles to come out as we all have so surely they are not goin to kill her off that would be stupid. I would like to see danielle alive so she and ronnie can build there relationship together at last.

    Eastenders will be permanantly deleted from my recording schedule if you kill off danielle, if you haven’t then genius, you have got the country talking about it and bloomin livid, if you have then stupid move!!!!!!!!!!!!! Please don’t do that to us, it’s been like pulling teeth out for ages, just as i was beginning to get back into eastenders and thought there had been some amusing parts and hoped of a happy ending!!! PS We like happy endings you know.

    Iwas so outraged with tonights ending. Not beause I was expecting some ‘ideal happy ending’, but because I demanded one after watching months of this story line. No wonder corrieis doing better.

  13. Emma

    I agree, it would be so cruel for Danielle to be kill off. They should think of those the british people who have also lost a parent and been reunited, how they get to know each other , can’t they have a bit of a life!! it would be good tv.

    I am disgusted at the ending of tonights hour long episode and unless the eastender writers pull up there socks and bring danielle back from the dead I wont be watching another episode! months and months tearing the a**e out of it for it to end like that!!

    What rubbish!!! After what seems like years, Ronnie finds out and within 5 mins the writers kill of the story in what seemed like a comedy sketch show, “My baby” then step out into the front of a car!!!! Poor very poor

    I don’t watch eastenders but this storyline has had my attention for a few weeks. If they kill off danielle I’ll be livid and it will simply prove I was right not to bother watching!!!!!!!!!!!

  18. Ann

    Not a very good move by Eastenders if she is gone forever. I for one will not be tuning into Eastenders anymore if that is how it ends for Danielle! I am quite outraged by this, Surely they could have her in a coma whilst everyone is disgusted by Archie’s behaviour and now know exactly what he is capable of! If this is truly the end then boo Eastenders and I am sure they will lose more than 1 viewer in disgust!

  19. neve kearney

    eastenders is the only soap i watch and it has had us all on a cliffhanger for the last couple of weeks just to hear danielle actually say them words to ronnie and then they go and kill her off ????? i well upset … so im never watching it again …

    they must have filmed alternative continuities, maybe to see how the viewers react danielle possibly dying, then making a decision based on that.

  22. Furious Viewer

    I can’t believe they have killed her OFF!!!!! All this wait to see Danielle & Ronnie Mother/daughter to be together and they go and do this.  I won’t be watching eastenders if they have killed her off AGAIN!!!! I would like to see her alive and both leavong together at the airport for a new life. I think I could have done a better job in writing the stroyline for tonight. I am SO upset with the ending. It’s terrible, all tis time of watching them apart and finally together they KILL HER OFF!!!!!

     

    NO MORE EASTENDERS FOR ME IF DANIELLE IS NOT ALIVE!!!!!

  23. saima

    Dissapointed! how can they kill her off like that, ive been watching for weeks and then when she finally tells her mum , boof! shes dead!.  I know she was just a character, but im kindve depressed now.  I dont think i can stand Ronnie moaping around anymore, how depressing!

    how could they write out such an innocent and gentle character i couldnt bear watching eastenders again!!!!!

  25. Ann

    I totally agree with the comment above, I dont think we should watch Eastenders again, let their ratings fall and send the msg that the veiwing public are outraged after waiting such a long time for a happy ending! Considering that Archie F****d up Ronnies life from a young age and she has suffered ever since. Then for Ronnie to find out the truth and kill Danielle is just disappointing for every viewer who has watched for months!

  26. donna

    that was horrible tonight.to kill danielle off would be so wrong

    she is just a little sweethesrt and would have love to see

    danielle and ronnie be mother and daughter there such

    great characters!!

  27. Ann

    I totally agree with comments above, I think the viewers should refuse to tune into Eastenders if Danielle is dead forever. It might teach them that we dont like to watch a depressing programme 52 weeks of the year. Is it not bad enough that there is always something shockinlgy dreadfull happens at xmas. Xmas is meant to be a happy time. TV plays a big part in people’s life! Real life can be depressing enough!

  28. Anonymous

    Everyone is in uproar!!! Enders need to sort this out… if she’s dead then I’m never watching that programme again!! I’m sick of watching depressing story lines and for the amount of time they dragged it out for they should at least let it be a happy reunion! Bad TV tonight!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  29. Rosie Christie

    wow, tonight’s episode has caused quite a stir.

    appologies for possibly repeating some of/all of the above comments (I got bored half way down the list – way too many haha) but I definately don’t think Danielle is dead if her acting performance has anything to do with it, anyway!  But surely they wouldn’t do that to us, would they?  They must let Ronnie be happy, for once.  And did anyone notice the sleazy glint in Archie’s eye on hearing about the accident?  Maybe he’ll get away with it afterall… Nah, not in Soapland.

    I have been watching Eastenders for probably at least a DECADE if not more! I’ve stuck with it since this new script writer has been boring me to death and dragged out this storyline well past it’s elastic limit!

    SO if this is the climax over a years build up I AM NEVER WATCHING EASTENDERS AGAIN!!! I urge and recommend everyone do the same.. a sudden DROP in viewers will hopefully result in a sudden DROP of the writer!!

    However if she ain’t dead it s’all good!

    this is ridiculous  I CANNOT BELIEVE THEY KILLED OF DANIELLE AFTER HOW MANY MONTHS WE WERE WAITING FOR THIS. UNBELIEVABLE..!!

  32. Andy

    If they continue and Danielle really is dead then no more Eastenders in our family its banned for everyone. I urge people to complain directly to the BBC like we have done. If they want a reaction then lets give them hell cos they just sent everyone to bed tonight with the hump.

     Shouldnt the vic have a qualified first aider being as its a place of work now who’s being out of touch with reality, Trading standards or Health and Safety at work act reps where are you.

    Surely if you roll over a car it kinda breaks your fall its not as if she was thrown to the ground directly and that car didnt look like it was going to fast more like backwards.

    Tomorrow could be the evening Eastenders gains millions or looses millions of viewers, now I wonder when corri is next……..

    this is silly noone is saying she will die but hopefully she wont die thousands of viewers will stop watching eastenders ifdanielle dies

  34. rosie

    The BBC has a responsibility to bring us entertainment, hope and values that could be helpful to others.  Having “opened the can of worms” that has touched many people in similar position, it will be very sad and negative if Danielle is ousted from the programme without giving your viewers the hope a reunion could mean.  To kill her off would only add to both parent and child a negative effect.  I hope that BBC is a far more responsible producer and will keep her in the programme offering positive feedback to your viewers. Any such event of killing her off would be both irresponsible and total lunacy and would not impact well with the general public as well as losing me as a permanent historically rooted viewer.  I do share this view with a lot of my friends.

  35. Rachael

    I cant believe Danielle has been killed off. Thing is it’s a Thursday night and normally they kill people off on a Friday to have us waiting a whole weekend to see the aftermath. Maybe this could be to have the country in uproar over dragging out such an intense storyline and for us all hoping they could reunite. I think and I hope that they have done this to be such a huge shock..but then Friday night the ambulance arrives to find Danielle is still alive..just. It would be great to see them build up their relationship together after this longhaul ride..not kill her off..just as the best bit could have started!!

  36. Matt

    Yeah I feel the same as you guys, Danielle can’t really be dead surely? I am also not watching the show if thats the case, whats the point of the whole story to end it like that, crazy! after years of viewing I give up..

    i really hope that she pulls though cuz otherwise you’ve lost an awful lot of veiwers !!!

      Actress (Lauren) playing Danielle is looking for work!

      So either she’s dead, or in a impossibly long coma / has ‘Gone West’ / Manchester or maybe to live in Spain.  Either way she’s not coming back.

      What I want to know is, when are they going to pedestrianise Albert Square??

      Also, did anyone else think that Janneine looked like an alien – lights behind her, standing with her skinny legs apart and then a massive head, just staring into space??

      Very disappointed with the whole thing, will be disputing my TV license payment.

    totally agree with the above comments. Thought the programme was too strong and negative-so sad.

    Danielle and ronnie could have hatched an escape plan where they run off and start a new life together leaving rozy and jack to get on with things.

    For the drama, they could have archie run after them, a chase but they get away and are free. That would have been so lovely and they didn’t need to kill her

  46. Jmb

    If Danielle has been killed off on this evenings episode I will never watch the programme again.  Do the writers seriously believe that the death of Danielle will encourage people to watch Eastenders?  I would not be suprised if loads of people gave up on a programme that is now clutching at straws for a story.  Worst episode ever but very well acted.  Shame on the writers…………… and bye from me for ever!

    I have been glued to the Danielle and Ronnie story for months now, and I have to say the two actresses in tonights episode were really great. Good job Sam and Lauren.

    However, I CANNOT believe that they have killed Danielle. The story has hit a nerve with so many people, we all have been tuning in every night that it has been mentioned. I really do feel like at this stage, that it is happening to two of my friends! I am so upset about what has happened

    BBC you really have messed up big time! You pretty much have 24 hours to sort out this mess, and to be honest if she is not at least in a coma tomorrow night you will be losing thousands of viewers!

    By the way, I never comment on anything, but what has happened tonight has made me do so.

    kill this soap off totally

    After tonights epsiode, after months and months of dragging this stroyline out… with such a terrible ending….. I won’t be watching this again.

  49. Very Annoyed

    I never really watched eastenders much before, just came in and out of the show, but the Danielle/Ronnie storyline for the past months (seems like years) has kept me gripped waiting and waiting for that one moment when she reveals all.  I thought theyd do it at christmas but it wasnt to be, so then i thought new years: nada.  Then it dragged on and on for another FOUR months until earlier tonight when the moment finally arrived.  I thought up until the ending it was a fantastic episode with great acting from my two fave characters in the show, danielle and ronnie.  But then they go and bloody ruin it all by killing Danielle off just after the reveal.  What a con, i am bloody annoyed that we had to wait all that time for this storyline to be resolved and then its ended up like this!  Well ill give it till tomorrow and watch the next episode but if she really is dead (which i fear is so from the things ive read) then that is the last time i will be watching eastenders.  They need to get the message that we do occasionally need a bit of relief from all the despair. 

    The coma idea that someone mentioned earlier would have been MUCH better.  You could still have all the fall out from Archie effectivley putting Danielle in that position and lying as well as Lauren Crace having a break if thats what she wanted, but still let there be SOME light at the end of the tunnel instead of the bottomless pit of despair that we will be sure to have for the coming months.  Just when we thought Ronnies character might actually turn a corner!  Well im not gonna watch to see the fall out after tomorrow if Danielle is dead.  If they think that having her dead is better for the ratings then hopefully they will be very much mistaken and annoyed people like me will also stop watching.

    ARRRAGHHHHH so bloody annoying.

    I’m a big fan of eastenders but come on guys this is gettin ridiculous, its only a soap lol and not real.  Just like literally everyone in eastenders dont appear to have their own washing machine and always use the laundrette.  You just don’t always get “lived happilly ever after” story lines.  Soaps in general are totally unrealistic, i mean look at the may and dawn saga, who in the right mind would NOT call the police when May returned and tried to get a dawn.  A doctor like may minter would have been sacked by the health service long time ago, but in eastenders no she never.  Soaps have to incite emotions in people thats why we laugh and cry at soaps like eastenders, if it was always a happy ending, (granted not often in eastenders) it would be very boring. I don’t think daniel dies off straight away anyway, as i have read somewhere there will obviously be periods of hospital bedside scenes.  But hey if her contracts up its up, maybe she doesnt want to stay in the soap like many actors.  I found the sean slater episode quite and anticlimax, but i suppose they never killed him off.  I mean even there where many parts in daniels accident scene tonight that was totally unrealistic, for a start who in the right mind would just stand there and not even bother really to get help, would you run into your local pub to tell people if you witness and accident? err no, you would either use a pay phone or use your mobile to dial 999, its more than likely janine would of had her mobile on her, and especially stacey, it never leaves her.  But no janine just stands there, yes in shock but your first reaction would be, dial your mobile.  As in any accidents, time is of the essence and standing about for like 20 mins in a situation like that, then no wonder she’s gonna die lol.  But anywayz its obvious she is not gonna be in it as this has been stated, an anticlimax to some but in reality, its not always happy endings, and just like in films it gets tedious when your start gettin constant repeats and extentions of something that will probably not turn out interesting in the long run.  SAW 68 anyone? or Police Academy 5987897897987.  NO thanx.

    I was dying to watch last nights episode and after watching it have never been so disappointed! I feel sorry for ronnies character because shes always unhappy and now that she finally gets the chance to be happy they completely ruin it. I think danielles acting was superb and they should definantly keep her on. I mean atleast they should have let them two have spent a day together as proper mother and daughter at the most. I wouldv felt a burden lifted off my chest!

    But one thing is for certain that if she is dead then im never watching another episode of eastenders. If Danielle is stil alive after todays episode then I know for a fact this will have to be the best eastenders episode ive seen for a while because it will give the audience a moment of sadness and then relief to see her alive!

    This Storyline was great until they decided to end tonights episode like that.

    A Mothers Bond Should be like no other,and eastenders have managed to kill that in an instant before it even had a chance to develop,ronnie has lived for 19/20 years thinking danielle was dead….then the day she finds out she was alive,they kill her off.

    what has surprised me is the amount of mens attention this has grabbed,i thought the majority of people that was outraged by this would be females,but ive seen just as many men outraged by this..

     

    if eastenders do axe danielle,they may as well axe the whole show because the words i can hear is…..AND THE AWARD FOR BEST SOAP IS……..CORONATION STREET !!

    I could be wrong but i dont think she is dead.. I mean the story line would stop and this story line has obviously pulled in the viewers!! They aint gonna wanna stop this all of a sudden i don’t think it doesnt make practical sense. There has been alot of threats of people deciding to stop watching the soap also. This will surely spur them on to keep her alive at least until people get sick of her and Ronnie! Which will be soon no doubt haha! I like to think she will remain alive as my family are all upset over it and i for one am sick of hearing about it now! Keep her alive for god sakes otherwise the country will have anarchy!

    ok ppl this is the lastest that i have heard dont know if its true but sounds plausable!

     Danielle is not dead just badly injured and rushed to hospital where her adopted father comes down and tells a distraught Ronnie to leave as dannille has told him that she  wants nothing more to do with her due to the way that she has treated her ( though really he just wants ronnie away from his daughter)

    fearing she has lost her little girl once again Ronnie goes back to the mitches and tells them all that she has died to show wat an evil man archie is to everyone then thinking she has nothing left for her round there no more she leaves where jack chasses her down to the airport and tell s her he has heard from Dannille and she does want her mum to be part of her life que dannille coming back to the square.

    as i said dont know if this is a 100% true but u never know!!! i think after the out pour of angry from their viewers eastenders will want to try to make it right and of course drag the story line out for at least anouther year!

    We do like happy endings too! I really hope Danielle is ok and goes on to build a happy relationship with her mother. I wont watch anymore if she is dead. I thought they tried to make soap’s realistic??????

  59. got a brain

    Have we all become so ‘dumbed down’ that producers of these soaps think we are only able to comprehend tragedy and pointless death? I expect they do, and are right now tickled pink with this latest and pointless ending to a storyline. For once, their was an opportunity to respect our intellect allow and us to experience a happy (even if short-lived) story line and let us cope with the emotional consequence of such an event, but alas! its not to be and that is the last episode I shall ever watch!!

  60. got a brain

    How insulting to all the viewers who loyaly follow this soap! a pathetic and predictable end that could have been so different and given us all a little hope in dark times. I won’t watch it ever again.

    what are you thinking – if she is dead you have made a big mistake! this whole storyline has been annoying and drawn out but this is like a massive slap in the face to all of the people that have stuck with it. After a lifetime of watching eastenders, for me this is the final straw.

  64. Kiera santry..

    I am absolutly out raged if this is how the story ends.

    but in my opinion, i think danielle lives, i have heard from quite a few people that she is going to be taken into hospital, with severe head injurys, put in intensive care, and then she will fall into a coma. (i hope this is true).

    Then what i heard was, she recovers, and something like she goes away for a little while, then comes back to eastenders again to help ronnie get a little revenge on archie.

    i believe this is quite true, i hope it is.

    if it isnt , i would find it SOO hard to watch eastenders again.

    are eastenders actrually gonna risk danielle dying in return of probably loosing over half of their viewers.

    i have also heard that eastenders have filmed two versions of tonights episode, lets just hope that they have chosen the right one.

    DANIELLE CANT DIE AND IF SHE DOES, I WILL NOT WATCH EASTENDERS AGAIN.

    Whos with me ..x

  65. Kiera santry..

    oh yeah .. i forgot to put in my last bit,

    On the OFFICIAL eastenders website, Danielle hasnt been taken off the eastenders characters page.

    SO that means that she hasnt infact left eastenders just yet.. BUT we we have to wait and see for tonights episode

  66. Dude

    what is the latest then is she dead or not, man someone has to know, they cant kill her, im a guy and i bawled my eyes out at the scene, was so depressing… im begging that what Nikstar said is true, so any word yet?

    I am absolutely gutted with the end to this story line.  How can they  have dragged this storyline on for so many weeks only to give it such a miserable ending.  Ronnie has been moany and miserable and here we have chance of a really happy ending and seeing Ronnie actually having some happiness in her life, but boom, its gone in seconds.  Danielle gets to call her ‘Mum’ as she is laid dying in Ronnies arms!  Rubbish!  Now we get to see Ronnie even more moany and miserable.  How about some happy joyful storylines in stead of doom and gloom!  Sack the writer lol.

  72. Very annoyed

    I agree totally with Nick – I can’t watch after this tragic pathetic ending. Peoples come on complain.

  73. TAN

    The script writers will be totally to blame when the numbers of those who view Eastenders severely decline. They really screwed up this time. WHY KILL DANIELLE????

    I’m considering arranging a PROTEST to bring her back to Walford, (you know like they did in Coronation Street when Deirdre was in prison) anyone out there interested???

    Anyway if Danielle is dead which I’m sure she is, I for one am no longer going to continue watching the soap. What’s the point?

    Managers/directors of the show, you have yourselves to blame for this one.

    HOW DISAPOINTING

  74. louis

    I’ve been watching eastender’s since i left the potty, this storyline has got me on the edge of my seat for months, fair enough they dragged it out but just to kill her off in the same episode ronnie finds out is an outrage. I can’t believe it. How many people can get run over in such a little street… tiffany, jamie, max ect ect ect and now danielle…BORING!!!!  please please don’t kill her off… dear writers for once just once lets have a happy ending… like the others said if danielle is dead then so is bbc1 at 7;30 and 8pm for me.. no more eastenders. You must of made alternate endings, please let her be in a hospital bed for a while so mum and daughter can start to build a relationship, then they can both go back to ibiza together and live happy when she is better.

  75. Anonymous

    There is no chance of her surviving. If you read some spoiler websites, you will learn that the next week of episodes all state that Ronnie tries to cope with the death. Also, tonights episode involves Archie trying to apologise to Ronnie, and saying that he will visit the morgue with her.

    Last nights episode was very upsetting and well done to ronnie and danielle for the brilliant acting. But the storyline was crap! It went on too long. Every episode it said danielle reveals all and nothing happened. Finally when it did they killed her! Eastenders should be ashamed of themselves!!! I really enjoyed the character of danielle i thought she was a brilliant actress. Please bring her back !!!!!!!!

    If something like this happens in eastenders once more then its going off my telly for good !!!

    Man, why kill her off? So sad, was a real tearjerker last night, well done to Ronnie and Danielles acting, great stuff!

    Ronnie deserves happiness, i nearly cried last night, it was that sad… and im a geeza!

    Build it up just to kill her off? Come on, thats nuts.

    This storyline had some personal meaning for me as I experienced some of the pain felt by Danielle in search of my own mother.  We never reunited, she had passed away by the time I had found her. Watching Danielle has been very emotional for me and I was so looking forward to her dreams being realised and those of her mother. If the character is indeed dead then I will be absolutely disgusted with the writers of Eastenders, they are impinging on thousands of peoples personal grief for the purpose of either ratings or a quick resolution to the storyline. I just find this ending completely unacceptable and unpalatable. Please remedy this at once and keep the character alive so we can see some joy in this oft cruel world.

    I just can’t take those hour long episodes where nothing goes right.  As everyone has said this was the worst way to end the episode. 

    Not only have we had to endure many characters being run over in the square, but the lead up to this accident was painfully slow.  Why did they do this to us.  I refuse to watch eastenders anymore if Danielle is dead.  How much more pain can Ronnie take and us viewers for that matter.  Television has to be uplifting sometimes, even Eastenders! 

    I was one of those who went to bed with the hump.  It was a really crap and unimaginative ending which means Eastenders has turned into Holly Oaks.

    Poor, poor, poor.

  92. Anonymous

    The producers should think about having danielle in intensive care/coma to keep up the suspence of the viewers, from there they can still use the scenes from where Ronnie tries to leave the country and Jack can be chasing her not only to ask for her hand in marraige…but to tell her that Danielle has woken up. That would be the best choice of ending as i don’t think many people are going to be tuning into Eastenders in the future if they kill Danielle off! A complete cop-out of an ending if so – producers think about it.

    omg i can not belive you would kill her off “WHY” THINK YOU NEED TO CHANGE THE STORY LINE if you dont you will loose alot of viewer’s and it will be your own fault!!!

    i think she will stay alive and ronnie will cover it up to protect her from good old grandad….or will he be a great grandad….as i think too that the abortion never worked….ronnies birthdays are going to come all at once…fingers crossed as i think it would make a wonderful plot and then eastenders would get my vote as best soap forever….have a heart let ronnie find happiness.

    i think that the writers of eastenders should put the decision to the british public i know they would find tht possible all the public want her to live how much more ain can ronnie go through danielle cant die she has only just started to become involved and for her to die well frankly i wont be watching any more episodes we tune in and rake in the ratings but we dont get what we want we ALL want danielle to live and for her and ronnie to be happy as mother and daughter common writers get a grip and listen to your viewers!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!1

    Think this was a silly move for eastenders writers. They have lost majority of there viewers, with the credit crunch going on at the mo, people just don’t want to watch such depressing programs on tv.

    People were barely watching it anyway, it only JUST started to get good and now its ruined! The whole Max and lauren story is the most boring plot i have ever seen and stopped watching for a while when that was going on, now apprantly thats the next storyline! great…not!!!!!

    You just put Danielle in a coma for a while, she wakes up and her and Ronnie start developing there relationship, would be a far more interesting story. Watching Ronnie soften up  and they could go to ibiza together, then jack stops them both at the airport and decares his love! Much better!

     Why oh why is archie still in the program? (love the real life actor larry lamb) but what has his character got left to offer now? compared to Danielle?

    Anyways, i will not be watching anymore its got too cringing and uncomfortable to watch now.

    Like everyone else I’m devastated at the outcome to kill off Danielle.  We’ve waited months and this is how it ends.  Ronnies my favourite charachter and is once again sentenced to more misery.  When you think of all the boring bits you have to watch to get to the juicy bits and this is how the storyline pans out its just not worth it – out of date sandwiches and pigs on leads.  Like many others, if Danielle is dead, my Eastenders days are over.

    I have so much interest and love for Eastenders, but my big advice is that we hope what we read from eastenders website should not confirm our fears that she is dead. This is not good for eastenders. this is similar to what happened in Hollyoaks when the character of ”Max Cunningham” died the same way. I am weeping, let danielle stay.

    Could not believe this outcome.After 7 months of hanging on to see the blossoming of a beautiful mother daughter relationship,this happens.Piss poor script writing.What has already been stated on here,why can’t characters have happy lives on the square,it’s always got to end in tears.

  117. nav

    A good and interesting story line that has been going on for some time. should not finnish in just five minutes. If thats the case my intrests in eastenders are also short lived. speaking for all my friends and familly.

  118. Tel

    If She did die, this could create a whole rollercoaster of storylines rather than the pretty rubbish yet typical storylines of “their in a coma” and then playing through a bucket full of tears and emotions… thats too typical and if you want that then watch casualty. If they never put the accident in then they could of made a good story line, but now they have put the accident in they should kill her because this will be one of the most award winning and shocking moments in soap history.

    please dont be lame and wake her up in hospital then a month later shes back on the market stall, thats too common in soap land, kill her off, have the mitchells at war with each other and get phil to give archie a pasting… i cant believe your all upset over this, i was more miffed about not seeing grant at the wedding or any other mitchell characters, do all soaps only have their neighbours as friends? honestly

  119. martyn

    i agree with everyone that said she shouldn’t be killed off. she’s such a great character and it would be really good to see her and ronnie to build a good relationship and to finally see something happy happen in a soap. eastenders if shes alive then wicked but if shes dead you got one less viewer!

  120. shanzaxxx

    Plz help me with my plan…

    They must have shot more than 1 version maybe if we all complain 2 eastenders website and include a link to this page then they’ll consider putting on the happier version…

    It must be worth a try…

    Look at all the people hu have the same oppinion, i’m deffo not watching it any more if she does die…

    if they see that nobody is goin 2 watch it anymore, they’ll realise that they won’t make any money… THEY NEED MONEY to make the show in the first place…

    Plz try it..

    wat have we got to loose…

  121. Bob

    There could be two possiblities:

    Ronnie didnt even listen to see if she had a pulse so when she went shes dead, how does she know!? Might of just been unconcious.
    So eastenders have left it there us thinking shes dead & having an uproar.
    Everyone will tune in to see if she alive & get hooked into whats happening again if she is.

     

    Or

    She dies & Eastenders get no viewers in the future.

    I dont understand tho cas i went on the Eastenders website & theres a trailer on tonights program. Danielles dads there and he goes i just cant beleive shes gone to ronnie.
    But why would Eastenders risk lots of viewers stop watching?

    I’ve complained to the BBC but for them to take us seriously lots of people need to complain.

    It’s not as if i’m even a big fan of Eastenders, in fact I only watch it sometimes.  I’m not even a fan of Danielle.  However this story has been dragged out longer than any soap story I know.  The weeks and weeks of build up only to get one big slap in the face at the end is just infuriating!  I understand the requirement for good drama but feel that in this case it has not been delivered.

    Their reply to everyone’s complaints (http://www.bbc.co.uk/complaints/response/2009/04/090403_res_eastenders_danielle_jf.shtml) states that “EastEnders, like all good drama, contains a balance of storylines, both happy and sad!”, but this story will loose viewers. 

    I will not watch Eastenders again!

    OMG look wat i found:

    EastEnders, objections to Danielle’s death, BBC One, 2nd April 2009

    Publication date: 3 April 2009

    Complaint

    We’ve received some complaints from viewers who were unhappy with the conclusion of EastEnders on 2nd April 2009.

    The BBC’s response

    EastEnders on 2nd April contained all the elements of a classic soap episode – a wedding, high drama, and tragedy.

    We acknowledge we didn’t deliver the happy ending many of the audience may have been hoping for, and that for some people this was upsetting. We hope viewers will understand that our aim is to always deliver the best drama possible.

    The storyline between Ronnie and Danielle was always going to be a challenging one and the producers decided from the offset that their relationship as mother and daughter would be short lived. Giving Ronnie what she’d always wanted in the long run would have impacted on what we were trying to achieve and although Danielle’s death may have been shocking for some viewers EastEnders, like all good drama, contains a balance of storylines, both happy and sad.

    I cant believe they killed her off. The sad thing is that she is dead, and isnt coming back! Stupid Eastenders, thats the last time i watch it!

    TBH…i think she is dead. I hate to say it, but she is. Look at the way it ended…she’s dead…no one in their right mind would end it like that…then having it all been a misunderstanding, ronnie believing she dead, but there’s still a slight pulse…no one would do that.

    I hate the ending, i cried for hours…it was totally heart wrenching…when Danielle called her “mum”….it totally got to me.

    However guys…lets have hope…maybe they might have her end up in a coma…lets hope and prey guys…please let Danielle live.

    Unbelievable!!! Im crushed, how can they kill her off are they crazy? Is life so awful that nobody is allowed to be happy? think about it what couples are still together on eastenders now and who are happy and havent cheated on each other? i know that they have to make it interesting but come on. Killing danielle off is a BIG BIG mistake. please a happy ending for once?

  131. Max

    If they have killed Danielle off, I’m not watching anymore. Just so utterly stupid and pointless. That’s the reward for watching and waiting so long?  Forget it. Stupid waste of time.

      Thursday nights episode was not what my family expected from prime time BBC, I myself am a 43 year old ex soldier and was disturbed by this episode, heaven knows what this has done to the many other children around the country that will have been watching.  I would guess that this program alone is more damaging than most 18 certificate videos and computer games.   I pay the BBC to entertain me not to build me up and then let me down over such a long period of time. I will be complaining to the ombudsman and to the BBC directly and would encourage others to do the same.   

      The sad thing is that this was probably one of East Enders best story lines and could have been so much different with a little thought.

    Well they did it!  I am never watching Eastenders again, just pathetic.  This is one less viewer for the next episode thats for sure, just hope there are many more like me so they get the message.  Just a shame its so final now and there is no way they can ever bring Danielle back.  Thank you for the great times Lauren Crace, youre a great actress and i hope to see you in something else someday.  Boo Eastenders!

    Why the hell didn’t EE warn us about the distressing ending.  I’m a carer for a little boy who’s been rejected by his mother and who identified with Danielle and her plight, as I’m sure many children did.  He’s been sad and withdrawn since Thursday’s episode and has been left hopeless.  I urge everyone to lodge a complaint at http://www.bbc.co.uk/complaints – many have already.  I’m appalled at the insensitive and tragic portrayal of adoption – playing it just for drama and entertainment.  The writers should not be allowed to think this was an accomplished episode – it was callous

    Killing off Danielle like that was not only heartbreaking and soul destroying but it was also a total waste of a great character too.  Danielle was a good person who merited a happier ending than that.  Ronnie treated the girl like dirt and along with the other residents who did nothing when Danielle was turfed out of the pub they should be ashamed.  Trouble is Ronnie can’t put it right she can’t make amends and that wastes the whole storyline.  Ronnie has been miserable and distant because she thought her daughter was dead and now it has come true.  Where does the story go from here?  Nowhere because the writers think that dramatic stories should always be depressing.  A terrible waste.  I am still upset by what happened and I do not really watch soaps but this storyline gripped me from the start but to get an ending like that is just utterly depressing.

    This is so crap, they’ve killed off like, the best character on the show and stopped the best storyline I’ve seen so far in a heartbeat, surely they could have had atleast a few weeks together until something happened? I’m guessing a happy ending is too much to ask for these writers.

    I really agree with nearly all the comments I have read on this site, I really think they should have had a poll on their site about the ending to see what the majority of the public wanted instead of ending it in a common crappy way.

    It’s so horrible that they’ve done this, people say it’s just a programme but you’d be surprised how much you can get attached to things if you regularly view them and I’ve actually read a few comments on various sites where this has literally happened to people in real life and it’s brought bad memories up.

     

    BRING DANIELLE BACK! >=[

    I Went looking about and everywere that said that danielle is in acoma and she wakes up. sothat must be it or the wrighter are very crazy

  146. Sas

    I had watched Eastenders form day one, i stopped watching when the writers made a huge mistake in killing Danielle, I now watch the other side!!!!! you see the writers of that show can see when they have a good thing!!!! 

    Im sure 90% of Eastenders fans would not mind at all if you brought Danielle back,  If its good enough for Dalles then its good enough for Eastenders.

  147. Rich

    Nothing in the bafters ah ah .. maybe you should listen to the viewers and bring back Danielle, it was the worst thing you have ever done  since all the years i have watched Eastenders ( i have watched from the start)  , and with the soap awards soon i dont think you will win best soap as a lot of us have been voting corrie and stopped watching Eastenders , sack the writers etc and get some one new in that wont give us doom and gloom all the time , its bad enough in the real world  and Bring Back Danielle !!!!! and u may win back viewers

    It is sick killing danielle off she was a lovly person & a lovly person 2 watch  so please fetch her back make it as a dream or something just bring her back.xxx

  149. Alisa

    They had her funeral on there and I feel like screaming at that director to bring her back or this is going to be you I’ve complained 58 stinkin times! No answer eh, if they don’t bring her back I’ll go to see her (if so) and I can say to her nice and calmly “They have left a door open for your return, so come on Lauren lets get to the people and your character’s alive once again” I want that to happen!!!

    I  think that Danielle shouldn’t of died because she should have stayed to get to know her mum. Taking her away was vile and horrible. I think she should of stayed alive. eastenders were wrong to have given her such a short story.

    I doubt it dude…

    I can’t believe you got run over. It’s just like what happened to my dad – it brings back so many memories. I only saw you a few times on the stall, but you seemed like such a nice person. I hope you have family in heaven to look after you. Abi x:

    I was going through your things today and found your laptop. I never knew you had one. You were so good at keeping things a secret, Dan. I’m not very good with words, or typing, but I wanted to tell you how sorry I am. I’ve read through your diary and I got upset remembering when I had a go at you in R&R. I was drunk and I’ve been angry for lots of reasons, but they weren’t your fault. Sorry for being such a cow. Watching what happened to you tears me apart… can’t believe you’re gone. Stace xxx
