EastEnders fans were left with their mouths open in shock as an “unexpected” character led Keanu Taylor (Danny Walters) to his death.
For months, viewers have been following the storyline that Keanu secretly got Sharon Mitchell pregnant, who is the step-mum to his also pregnant girlfriend, Louise Mitchell.
During his affair, while cheating on Phil Mitchell (Steve McFadden) daughter Louise, Keanu was also sleeping with Phil’s partner in the process – a sure death wish for anyone in Albert Square.
And in tonight’s episode, Louise finally worked out the affair between Sharon and Keanu.
Louise, who gave birth this month to their child Peggy, encourages Keanu that they should leave Watford together as she knows her father will want to kill him.
The pair manage to find an unlocked van at the Arches, but just as they are about to leave, Louise reveals she has been tricking him all along and has no interest in sticking by his side.
Showing she has set him up to die, just before she leaves she tells him: “Never take a Mitchell for a fool.”
Martin Fowler appears behind Keanu and strangles him through the car window, leaving him unconscious.
He then took Keanu to a warehouse and kills him by shooting him and then recorded it as proof that he is dead.
Also in on the death was Ben Mitchell, who Martin later shows the video to to confirm that Keanu is dead and “they’re now even”.
Fans were left shocked by the twist and rushed to Twitter to share their thoughts.
One wrote: “Holy f**k Louise is a savage. Wasn’t expecting that.”
A second said: “Wait… Louise is some kinda gangsta too now? wtf?”
A third tweeted: “That’s shocking didn’t expect that from Louise.”
Another commented: “Louise is soooo cold what the.”
One more claimed: “That is the most brutal soap twist ever.”
