The couple celebrate Albie’s christening – but there will be bloodshed
Sharon Watts (portrayed by Letitia Dean) and Keanu Taylor (Danny Walters) rekindled their romance and are ready for a brand new chapter in their relationship – despite the hurdles they’ve had to jump through.
However, Keanu is growing increasingly worried about his finances.
The hunk has accepted a job from Ravi Gulati (Aaron Thiara) in hopes to make money for Albie’s christening.
But Keanu may have bitten off more than he can chew by getting involved with the Walford gangster.
On the morning of Albie’s christening, Ravi reminds Keanu that there’s big money on the table for the delivery job.
Keanu is conflicted until he gets his nose put out of joint by the flash present Martin Fowler (James Bye) and Zack Hudson (James Farrar) have bought Albie.
He soon makes an excuse to slope off and meet them at the church as Ravi gives him the details for the job.
Keanu learns he’ll be transporting drugs in white goods but delays soon make him late for the christening, prompting him to park outside and rush into the church.
Matters go from bad to worse for him when the van alarm goes off and Keanu rushes outside to check with Sharon in tow.
Unfortunately for him, the police are also waiting to see what is happening and Keanu is arrested on the spot for intent to supply, leaving Sharon reeling in shock.
Keanu’s mother Karen Taylor (Lorraine Stanley) pleads with Sharon to do something as he remains at the police station.
The EastEnders stalwart eventually calls a solicitor as Karen insists to everyone her son would never go anywhere near drugs.
Back at The Vic, both her and Sharon defend Keanu with a panicked Ravi overhearing them.
Keanu finally calls Sharon and pleads his innocence – but DS Barnes soon offers him a way out if he’s willing to rat on his bosses.
All hell breaks loose when he arrives at The Vic and Ravi collars him, demanding to know if he grassed them up.
Keanu swears he kept quiet but Ravi isn’t willing to hear him out.
The criminal makes a secretive phone call… and catches up with Keanu to take revenge.
An ambulance is called when Phil Mitchell (Steve McFadden) finds Keanu and a distraught Sharon gets to the scene.
Sharon’s mind races while in the hospital waiting room and she speculates that Ravi is responsible for it all but Phil isn’t as convinced.
When Karen arrives, she tears a strip off Sharon for forcing Keanu to turn to a life of crime to keep up.
Nish Panesar (Navin Chowdhry) then spots a confrontation between Ravi and a vengeful Sharon, leading him to realise his son is the attacker.
Sharon threatens to report Ravi to the police but could she put her own life in danger?
Ravi isn’t the only dangerous member of his family.
Regular viewers of the London-based soap will know that Nish Panesar was sent to prison for two decades after he murdered a man he believed to have seduced his wife, Suki.
History could repeat itself as Suki has fallen for Eve Unwin and the pair struggle to remain hidden from Nish’s sight.
And with an explosive murder mystery in the works, due to take place during the festive season, could Sharon Watts find a way to stand up for herself and Keanu?
Could one of the Panesars be the unknown male victim?
EastEnders airs from Monday to Thursday at 7.30pm on BBC One.
