The return of Keanu Taylor (played by Danny Walters) in EastEnders has enraged Phil Mitchell (Steve McFadden) and Ben Mitchell (Max Bowden), as both presumed him to be dead, and they are now desperate to rub him out once and for all. But could their anger be the catalyst for the deadly voyage on the Thames?
Keanu has resurfaced in Albert Square and is determined to leave on his own terms, rather than running out of town and living in fear of Phil and Ben.
His return took Callum Highway (Tony Clay) by surprise, as he let Keanu into his flat thinking he was Ben, before Callum laid him out with a single punch.
When Ben encountered Keanu he was just as surprised, but what knocked him cold wasn’t a punch, but the realisation Callum had been kidnapped by Keanu.
Poor Callum is Keanu’s ticket out of Walford once and for all, as he uses the kidnapping to blackmail Ben into handing him £100,000 in exchange for his safe return.
